“not so bad”
Reviewed February 17, 2006

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.

My family (of 4) staying overnight recently. Yes it was a little further out than we intended from the City. Check in was fine (I do agree with some reviews that the front desk staff did not understand our requests some times). Nothing wrong with room (expected worse based on reviews here). Big enough for family of four, clean and tidy. Have stayed in worse places. Yes a little tired but nothing to get upset about. Shuttle took us to Airport to catch Metro (no problems with drop off or pick up). No problems with food in restaurants, not busy so not many staff but everything okay. Dropped off at airport next morning on time. Would stay somewhere in DC closer to tourist spots next time but this hotel is really okay - maybe we just got good room. Only criticism is the staff on front desk didn't really understand some requests we asked of them. The Graham Family.
