This is a nice hotel in the heart of old town Alexandria. It's a long walk to King Street Station (15-20mins) but it's worth doing at least a few times. You're a few blocks from the waterfront of the river and there are some great bars around the area. (also if you're into art, the torpedo factory is fairly close by and take at least a few hours to mosey around)
During the week things tend to close around 7-9ish and the restaurant in the hotel isn't that great, BUT, there is a CVS right across where you could stock up on whatever you need.
Overall, pretty good stay, would recommend. We walked around the area extensively and this seemed to be one of the nicer hotels in the area. The only negative would be the walk, but if you take the FREE trolly that comes around every 15 mins. it really cuts away at the walk.
If you do stay here, make sure you join Kimpton awards, they offer a bunch of free perks, there's also a airport shuttle that will pick you up and drop you off if you don't feel like taking the metro to king street station and complimentary wine hour around 5 or 6 and coffee in the morning.
