This Kimpton is in a great location right in middle of everything in Old Town Alexandria and is creative and beautifully decorated with a lot of nice touches. I enjoy boutique hotels that are a little off the beaten path, so I selected this hotel for my week-long business trip. Bottom line - you're paying for cute and Old Town,...

Dear illinitraveler714, Thank you for staying with us on your extended business trip to our area, and for taking the time to share your feedback here. I really regret that you felt the service was just "okay" while you were here, and that we were unresponsive and uncaring when speaking to you after your trip. Please accept my sincere apologies....

I enjoy staying with this chain. Eery hotel has a different, yet similar feel to it. Whether its the dog friendly aspect, the raid the minibar for members or just the scene in the hotel bar/restaurant, i never get that standard hotel feel. This stay was more of the same, clean comfy room, great service and a good restaurant. I'll...

You cannot pick a better location in Alexandria and the staff is very friendly. You are within walking distance of all the great restaurants, waterfront, historic sights in old town and the King Street Metro to take you into D.C. The decor of the hotel lobby and halls is really attractive and the rooms are beautiful. It is an expensive...

We came to this hotel, newly redone b Kimpton Hotels, and discovered a real treasure. The decor is very Moroccan and quite different but as comfortable and charming as can be. Our room was much more elegant and handsome than we expected. Every amenity was provided including big juicy bathrobes, a reasonably priced mini bar and the best was the...

You can't get much better of a tourist-friendly location in Alexandria. The hotel (and street) is dog-friendly as well. Unfortunately, the hotel suffers from a dearth of information. The usual info notebook is missing here. There is no map of the environs, listing of area restaurants and attractions, not even a notation of how the hotel is laid out and...

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...

Exquisite hotel with modern, unconventional deco. Close to the main street of shops and restaurants. Love the balcony where you can sit and have a drink while enjoying the nice view of a little piazza. Definitely coming back.

Hotel was extremely noisy, thanks to malfunctioning doors, loud parties on the outdoor courtyard, and in-room air conditioning (i.e. no central air). And staff--most shockingly for a Kimpton property, most of which I've enjoyed--was indifferent to the point of rudeness. Not coming back here.

This Hotel is marvelous. The rooms are very comfortable and the location is perfect. We loved the pillows.They serve complimentary wine each afternoon and free coffee in the morning. I would stay there again anytime. Also, the staff is very friendly.
