We had extra points left in our Wyndham Timeshare and decided to use them for a little vacation near home. Actually this was very convenient for my husband because he could actually walk to work from this location! We spent three nights in a 2 bedroom, which was the first time we had stayed in a 2 bedroom at this resort. the living area is very large in this unit. We had a Christmas party with some friends one evening in our unit and were able to get parking passes for our guests so that they could get free parking. We spent another 2 nights in a one bedroom. Wyndham offered to move our things from one room to the next during the transition. We like the size of the 1 bedroom for 2 people. We love the location of the Wyndham Old Alexandria. It is right across the street from Metro, so you can actually fly into Reagan National and get by without a car. It is only a mile walk to the Potomac River with lots of restaurants and shopping. It is easy to walk around Old Town or there is a free trolley that runs up and down King Street. There is so much to do that the hotel does not have a lot of sponsored activities. There was a wine & cheese event on Monday late afternoon-early evening. You can check out board games if you choose and you can use the small inside pool at the Hilton. Cookies and popcorn are offered in the common areas. Both of our units were on the side of the building that faced the Metro and train tracks. Some people have complained about the noise, but we have to say we slept very well with very little noise. The trains did not use their horns until at least 6:30 AM each morning and that wasn't every day. We also did not hear horns after 8 PM. I suppose it is what you are used to as to whether the trains would keep you awake. We live several miles away from tracks, but when the leaves are off the trees in the winter we hear the trains from our house. Semis speeding on highways tend to keep me awake more than trains. We did not hear our neighbors in either of the units. I think the noise was a very comfortable level and not having to deal with DC area traffic is a huge bonus. Our granddaughter also was very entertained watching the trains one of the days that we stayed in. It was very cold the days that we stayed there and we were happy that so many restaurants delivered. There is a Wholefood Grocery nearby for a few groceries. La Porta Restaurant is also an easy walk and offers 2 meals and a bottle of wine for $28.99 on Mon & Tues nights. We drove over to National Harbor one evening for dinner. It would be nice if there were a free or less expensive shuttle offered from one Wyndham to the other. By the time you pay for the water taxi for 2 people it is more expensive than paying the $11 parking garage fee and there is plenty of parking at National Harbor. We stayed here just for the convenience of enjoying the Old Alexandria area without having to drive in. It's a great place for seeing Washington DC though with the Metro so nearby! And last but not least the wireless internet was free and fast..
