“Next to metro -- Helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

This Holiday Inn is nextdoor to the Eisenhower Avenue Metro Station on the Yellow Line. There is direct service to Regan National Airport and into the city with the first in-city stop at L'Enfant station.

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. One staff member saw that my father was ill and overheard us discussing going to look for a pharmacy. The staff member offered to let us use the hotel shuttle bus to get to a pharmacy. This was a really appreciated gesture and a sign of a great staff.

The rooms were clean and comfortable.

Parking was free.

I recommend this hotel for folks looking for a less expensive hotel, near the metro, outside of the city.

Great hotel....room was spacious and very clean. Loved the view too of downtown Alexandria. Near major roads and easy to get to tourist attractions like Mt Vernon. Also provided van services to various spots in the area so we would just call for them to pick us up and they were there in a matter of like 10 minutes! Only negative was the pool was not heated and no hot tub either.

No heat in the pool? Oh dear!! Our pool is designed to be a warm pool so thank you for bringing this to our attention, your comments have been heard and passed along to be followed up on. We recently added a fitness center to the building as an added feature to our hotel, there is nothing stopping us from adding an area that could hold a hot tub in the future so thank you for letting us know that is something you would like to see. Surely there are more of our guests who would find that to be an attractive feature at the end of a long day of site seeing in DC!

Please come and stay with us again soon, it is always a pleasure hearing from everyone who stays with us. We would love to have you as a guest again!

Inexpensive hotel without a lot of frills but great breakfast buffet and a pool the kids loved after a lot of walking in the city. The hotel is walking distance to quite a few great restaurants and a few ships. The staff was very friendly and courteous greeting the kids by name at breakfast, very sweet. Convenient parking garage, all in all it was perfect as we were there so little due to the long days touring, I'd stay there again.

I stayed here for three nights and enjoyed my stay. The hotel is fine, but not exceptional. The guest rooms could use some updating. The was fantastic, though. Every employee I encountered was friendly with two definite standouts. Ron at check-in and Alexis at the bar were both fantastic. I would certainly consider staying here again the next time I am in town. The location was convenient to my destination in N. Va, and the proximity to the Metro is fantastic.

This hotel was everything we needed to explore Alexandria and DC. The rooms were just large enough for our family of four. They were spotlessly clean and maintained every day.

The staff at the hotel were all helpful and friendly and there was a fantastic free shuttle bus which took us to Alexandria Old Town and would go on to Ronald Reagan Airport.

The metro line is close enough to make travel to DC easy.

A great base!

You really can't go wrong with everything so close to our hotel. With the metro, our free shuttle and the highway literally right outside of our lobby doors, each of our guests can be entertained for days while staying with us.

We are so glad to hear that you found this to be exactly true during your stay! Thank you for letting us know you enjoyed your time here and we hope to see you again soon!

I only stayed one night at this property, arriving late. However, I must mention the gentlemen at the front desk was very accommodating. I did have the pleasure of dinning in the grill, and truly had a pleasurable experience. The bartender, Alexis, provided a level of service I won't forget! The food was delicious, and the manager checked on our table to ensure satisfaction. Great stay. I'll be back!

Conveniently located by the metro station and across from a nice center with AMC movies and lots of restaurants. It is quiet and the rooms are nice with comfortable beds and microwave and fridge. Hotel has on site restaurant and lounge with good food and lots of fun.

The staff was helpful suggesting fun things to do and nice places to eat and the shuttle service to Old Town is a plus. Would recommend - the pool area was nice as was the workout center.

Room Tip: 5th floor was quiet
