Hotel was modern and the rooms updated. What is most important is the convenient location so you can just park your car and walk to all the Old Town Alexandria shops and restaurants. We were less impressed with Old Town Alexandria because we expected to see more historic sites. Another nice aspect to the location is that it is close to the beautiful parks on the south end of Washington Street that provide a lot of nice hiking/biking trails along the water front. Mount Vernon is a short 8-10 miles away.
We were less impressed with the service. We called down requesting our car (we had used valet service) and were told it would be 10-15 minutes. We arrived at the lobby 15 minutes later and they attendant hadn't even pulled our keys, let alone gotten our car, so it was another 10 minute wait. We also stopped at the outside seating service for a glass of wine and it took about 5-10 minutes to get waited on even after we had gone inside to make sure there was service to the outside.
