The worst thing about this hotel is its location. It's not unpleasant, I didn't feel unsafe, it's just not in the heart of Alexandria, and if the primary purpose of your visit is sightseeing in DC, this is not the place to go.
The hotel does operate a half hour shuttle to Reagan airport, and you can get a metro train from there into downtown, but it's a bit of a schlep.
My room was comfortable and clean. The TV worked fine apart from the TV internet service which was hopeless. The staff on the desk were ok.
I was woken by a fire alarm one night. This was apparently because the kitches were being "fumigated." I wasn't sure whether that was a good sign or not. Food in the restaurant tasted fine though. So overall, ok.
