I made the mistake of having my staff reserve a hotel room on the east side of Alexandria because I had business to conduct east of the city, only to find out I had to go clear across town to catch the highway heading east up the coastline. Oh, well.
Check in was cordial and efficient. But on entering my room I recalled the advice I received from a colleague that had stayed there in June 1999, "It's a cell." Pretty apt description. Bathroom was sized for munchkins and the bedroom wasn't much larger. And to top things off, they gave me two twin beds. I'm a big guy. The bed was like a hammock - soft. And the pillow(s) were even worse. And I wasn't the only one complaining; I had two of my staff with me plus a driver and they complained about the beds as well. Time to change your mattresses, Sheraton!
Breakfast was typical for the region and well laid out so you didn't have to stumble over each other to get your food. Service was good; I was immediately offered coffee and got the decaf I require without delay. Offers to refill were prompt and cordial.
We were hungry on late check in and the valet recommended a good fish restaurant "around the corner." It's a little further than that but well worth the walk - an excellent fish restaurant called Hosny. It's worth the stay at the Sheraton!
