I couldn't think of anything negative about our stay here. We stayed July 17-21 and then again on July 26th because we enjoyed our previous stay.
Great low rates and ideal location - the Eisenhower Metro Station was just a short walk across the parking lot and takes you anyplace you need to go quickly and easily. There's a large AMC Movie Theater just across the street, along with a Ruby Tuesday casual dining restaurant and a little ice cream shop called "Cold Stone" over there.
We packed light, so we were able to take advantage of the washer/dryers they have available on the 10th floor - and they even give you little boxes of Tide detergent for free! It was 1.25 each in quarters to wash and to dry.
Rooms were clean and comfortable. A/C worked just fine for a very hot and muggy July week. Staff was courteous. Free shuttle van to/from airport was convenient and available anytime we needed it, and drivers were friendly.
We would definitely stay here if we're ever in the DC/Old Town Alexandria area again.
