Reviewed 10 December 2017

My husband and I recently stayed two nights in this hotel in Old Town, Alexandria while in the area for a family celebration. Our stay here was quite pleasant. The room was spacious and the bed, which had a new mattress according to a sign on the nightstand, was very new and comfortable. The weekend room rate was reasonable for Old Town but the $20/night parking fee was a bit steep. We had the breakfast buffet one morning and for the price, could have have been a few more offerings. There was scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, toast, danish, pancakes, and fried potatoes. I would have liked to have some lighter fare, such as yogurt, granola, fresh fruit (cut up), muffins or bagels. But, what was there was very good. I particularly liked the scrambled eggs as they were not overcooked or dried out. The breakfast attendant, Bethelem, was very attentive and quite pleasant. My only other issue was with the plastic cups (instead of glasses) in the room and the rough quality of the tissue and toilet paper. This hotel has a shuttle to Reagan Airport which is a short ride away which is nice. All in all, a pleasant enough stay not far from the center of Old Town.

Only had a couple of choices to bring the dog. First time here.
Plenty of streets for walking, hotel staff was friendly
going through some renovations, safe parking. We would come back here. it was close to where we were visiting

Room Tip: Pay for parking. Breakfast package was good, just doesn't include drinks

Great area. I was able to walk to my destination each day with ease. Not too far from metro and bus station. Room was clean and spacious. My only issue was the breakfast. For what you pay, it could have had more offerings and the eggs could have been cooked.

All in all, I'd stay here again for business or pleasure.

Recently stayed here for a business meeting over several days. The rooms are fairly updated with all of the usual amenities for a mid-range hotel. The front lobby entrance is under construction, but not a major issue. The hotel shuttle runs every 30 minutes between DCA and the hotel and back, so that is very helpful. The nearest Metro station is Braddock Road (blue/yellow lines), about .9 miles away, so a good walk or a short taxi/Uber ride so you can take the Metro anywhere from there. There are several decent restaurants within 3-5 block walking distance from hotel, all decent priced and good variety (pub, cafe, Thai, Italian, Japanese steakhouse, and a decent priced breakfast/lunch joint). Parking is a bit problematic and is expensive ($20 per night), though, so don't bring your car if you want to save time/money. Overall: decent, clean stay.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard are a bit quieter and peaceful.

clb55d2,

Thank you for sharing your feedback. I am glad to see that you found our location convenient and that you enjoyed some of our local restaurants. While it is true that we do charge for parking we are actually on the lower side as the other hotels in the area charge as well. We hope to see you back should your travels bring you back to Alexandria.

Location (3/5): Located in the old town area, but the hotel is situated a bit off from the main attractions. You don't have a lot of restaurants or cafe in the area. I walked 10-15 mins to the closest Starbucks in the morning. The hotel does provide the shuttle to the King Street and the airport which is a plus and compensate part of its disadvantages

Service (3/5): In my experience it was fair. Nothing stood out particularly. The time spent on checking in and out is fair. But I can tell if there are multiple parties arriving the same time could cause a bit of a slow down and traffic. That's on IHG to allow customers to check in and out using their mobile devices in the future (Like Hilton and Marriott). But until then...

Room (3/5): I am ok with decor. It's a modernized palette but that's about it. Everything else works fine. The bed is pretty comfortable, the pillows weren't as good (firm) as I expected. Overall the room is pretty spacious which I appreciate. The bathroom is also spacious, the amenities are the standard Bath and Body Work brand items

Bar/Restaurant (1/5): I am not sure whether it's the lighting or the setup. The location and presentation of the bar seem very odd to me. I had no motivations to visit

I had stayed in other hotels in the area. If you have to compare the hotels within the same class in the same area. There are however better options

Room Tip: While you don't want to stay too close from the elevator, getting put too far could result to qu...
