While we really enjoyed Alexandria and Washington, DC, the hotel was pretty run down and not in a very nice area. Evey other floor was a smoking floor and the venting system didn't work very well. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The shuttle to the metro station was full, so we gave up after the first day and drove to the metro station and parked there.
The "free" breakfast was in the IHOP attached to the hotel, paid for by coupon, but the coupon didn't cover the cost. If you wanted a better breakfast, you could order from the menu, but the food was mediocre. We stayed there 5 nights. Toward the end of the week I stepped in to the bathroom and was hit with water pouring in through the light fixture, coming from the roof. They said their gutters were clogged and that's why that happened. I had to ask to have our room changed and they then did it cheerfully. The second room was like the first - a bit run down and needing some care. The rooms were kept very clean and I appreciate that in a hotel room. We didn't enjoy our experience in this hotel and would not stay there again. Would not recommend it for anyone.
