Reviewed December 15, 2013

We just returned from a friends retirement in Alexandria, VA. I can't say enough about the excellent hospitality and service we received at the HI on Eisenhower Ave. we had the best ADA room we've ever stayed In with 2 bathrooms a sitting area, table 4 chairs and a king bed. The friendly staff went out of their way to help us including lending us a wheelchair, providing a quiet place to watch a movie while the little ones napped and a nice room to celebrate with friends. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Alexandria area..

This is our second trip here in 6 months. Our first trip was so great it was hard to think about staying anywhere else in this area. This entire staff at this hotel is truly dedicated to making your stay superior. Check-in and Check-out is quick and efficient. The rooms are always clean and in great order. The staff in the restaurant and lounge are very nice, courteous and attentive. On one occasion going down to the lobby the doors opened and some of the staff were on the elevator. They got off and insisted I take the elevator and they would wait. The hotel offers their shuttle into Old Town Alexandria which is awesome and will come back to get you. The drivers have always been very nice and personable. You can also get the train which is across the street. Very convenient for going into DC.We will definitely return on our future trips to the area.

Room Tip: All he rooms have been very quiet even with the proximity to the expressways.. I prefer the east sid...

I stayed here during the Thanksgiving weekend. I had originally planned to stay one night here before staying with family, but instead ended up staying here during my entire stay in the area. My stay here at the Holiday Inn in Alexandria was so perfect in more ways than I can imagine. Everything about this hotel was so swell such as being serviced by probably the nicest shuttle driver anyone will get to know, the kindness from the front desk, the tremendous effort by those whole cleaned my room everyday, the cozy atmosphere of the hotel overall, and most of all the level of comfort which enjoyed whenever I stayed in my hotel room.
Stay here at the Holiday Inn Alexandria has to be among the best experiences in regards to staying at a hotel, and I do not know of any other hotel to stay if in the Washington area. Strongly recommend staying here if you get the chance stay around there.

We went to a Redskins night game and stayed here that evening since it was on our way back to southern Va. We had a long hard day and night so the last thing we wanted when straggling in at midnight was problems. Happily there were none. It was right off the beltway, It was exactly as was ordered and there were no major problems. It was clean and comfortable. If I had to complain about something, I would say that the refrigerator was really loud but I didn't need it so I unplugged it. The bathroom was very small which put the towels pretty close to the toilet and that kind of skeeved me but not too bad. Without a doubt, an excellent bang for your buck in the DC area.

We admit, our bathrooms were designed a bit on the small side and if we could add more room to them we would in a heartbeat. However, it seems that everything else was to your liking, other than perhaps a better Redskins game outcome? Thank you very much for staying with us during your trip and please do come and see us again soon!

A group of us decided to stay here for the Metro was nearby and parking was free. It turned out great for us. The Metro along with nearby restaurants is all within a 5 minute walk. Everyone at the hotel was very helpful in anything we needed. Will return on all future trips.

With so much to do and see here in Alexandria and access to downtown DC, why stay anywhere else? We truly appreciate the time it took to leave your comments about your stay with us, especially right before the busy holiday season. The next time you're in town, we will have your room ready and of course we'll be waiting to take you to any new restaurant you would like to try!

Three of us stayed here for the weekend when we were running the Marine Corp Marathon and were very pleased with our stay. The cost was very reasonable. The location is great, only 1 block from the Metro and restaurants are just down the street. Our room, as well as the entire hotel was very nice and comfortable. The staff was great, friendly and accommodating. We arrived in the AM and were able to get into a room right away, as well as leave our bags for several hours after check out. Would stay again, no question.

My son & I stayed 5 nights here while visiting DC. The service was excellent! I requested a room on the 8th floor away from noise & it was not an issue. Heard some road noise in the morning, but not out of the ordinary. Shuttle picked us up from the airport. It was a 25 minute wait. Shuttle also took us to the front door of the restaurant we wanted to try in Alexandria. I highly recommend Mahai Thai on King Street by the water, if you like Thai food. Since our flight didn't leave until 4:00 & checkout time is noon, the hotel held our luggage while we walked across the street to the San Antonio grill for lunch. Not the best looking decor in a Mexican restaurant, but the lunch fajitas were excellent! I chose this hotel mainly for the convenience of walking to the metro. Worked out great & a short distance to Huntington to catch bus 101 to Mt. Vernon. The bathroom was a bit small, but accomodating for one person at at time. The breakfast was decent, but a bit pricey. I guess I'm used to complimentary breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

We are working on getting a complimentary breakfast here, but due to brand standards, the full service Holiday Inn hotels still are not quite there. Those perks are still reserved for our counterparts, the Holiday Inn Express hotels. But hopefully in the near future we will be able to offer the same for our guests!

Thank you very much for letting us know you enjoyed your stay, we enjoy having you and please do come back and see us again soon!
