Ours was a 5 night family stay while visiting DC for the second time.
Everyone at the hotel is working on something like a 10 scale of client satisfaction, and believe me: they are trying hard, specially Linda at the front desk and the girls at the restaurant who are super friendly and nice all the time.
We had breakfast every morning, it is not complimentary, quality is good and service is the BEST.
Rooms are big and super clean, beds are comfortable, so are pillows.
Free wiFi works great.
The carpets at the hallways are not that clean and the door frames seem beaten up and not well painted.
We had an issue with a terrible odor of tobbaco coming out of our vent system and the manager came fast to our room and arranged a new room for us in a couple of minutes.
Vending machines in the computer room do not work at all, machines took our money every single time we tried to buy something, then the manager gently returnet us the money.
Old town Alexandria is a few blocks from the hotel, lots of restaurants and nice shops, the hotel runs a free shuttle. Shuttle from the airport to the hotel is free but keep in mind that you have to call the hotel so they send the bus to pick you up.

Use of the laundry machines is also free, but there is only one drier and one washing machine.
