Stayed here in July 2009 while visiting a friend. I was a little apprehensive given some of the mixed reviews here on Tripadvisor (especially the ones saying the hotel was dirty).
Fortunately, I found the hotel to be perfectly pleasant.
The room was quite nice - it had a desk, microwave, fridge, coffee maker (with free starbucks coffee!), sleeper sofa, and two flat screen tvs. Everything was in reasonable shape and I had no issues with "cleanliness".
As others noted, the room is technically a suite in that the sleeping area is partitioned from the rest of the room, but it was really no larger than a regular hotel room. It might be useful to separate out the bedroom from sleeping kids, but don't think you can cram a large family in here because it is a "suite" - the room could not fit more than two adults and two kids.
Two tips I found:
Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was pricey; we never ate there but instead ate at the diner across the street. This diner was great; it's been around for about 100 years! (no joke!)
Second, parking in the hotel is pricey at $22/night. We opted to park on the street. There is free parking overnight from about 5pm to 8am. After that, you need to feed the meters, or, do what we did and go to the Alexandria visitors center where they will give you a free one-day parking pass!
