Got this hotel on Priceline for $65 ($81 after tax and fees). They charge $12 to park as well. The location is not Old Town, it is 8 blocks north and pretty far to walk. There are about 2 blocks between the hotel and Old Town that appear to be subsidized housing-may not want to walk past there too late at night. This is the first hotel I have booked on Priceline that would not allow me to put in a request for bed type and smoking preference. When I called initially to inquire, they refused to take my info and told me I would get whatever was available when I checked in. Checked in at 3:15pm (check-in starts at 3) and was told the hotel was full and that the only room they had was a king smoking room. Not my preference, but beggars can't be choosers. There were only about 15 cars in the parking lot the night I stayed-so much for full... The drawbacks-the location is not "Old Town", they would not allow a preference on rooms and a hotel staff member walking through the halls at 5:45am with a walkie talkie that beeped when he keyed it up. The upside- the price. I probably would not use Priceline to book a 3-star in Alexandria again based on our stay here.
