We stayed at the Holiday Inn Alexandria SW hotel (room 724) for four nights (Friday, January 18 through January 21, 2013). We ate at the hotel’s Dutch Grill for 3 of four nights. The only real disappointment was when I had to return my steamed broccoli because it was not hot enough for me. The dish was heated and returned to me quickly. It was then good and hot. Otherwise all breakfasts and other dinners were acceptable.
Occasionally the housekeeper left trash in the room and did not clean an empty soap dish. Otherwise the Housekeeping service was acceptable.
We used the hotel’s free shuttle service to go to and from the Metro stations “King St.” and “Eisenhower Ave.” The drivers were punctual, knowledgeable and friendly.
There was ample free parking.
We are looking forward to staying there again.
