great place to stay

this hotel is centrally located to all attractions. We were able to experience Washington DC while staying in a quant town. This hotel is situated close to shopping on king street. If you are into the art scene Torpedo factory is a must see. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were cleaned everyday. The food was average and would suggest going out for your meals.

Parking Fees - ?

Daily Garage Rate of $20 is very steep and raises the room rates -- use street when possible. Otherwise, no real complaints about the location and a solid and helpful staff and good service to Metro links -- thus leaving a car parked is a must if you are wanting to access DC locations with no fuss. The hotel might avoid changing the internet codes before departing guests check out in the morning though!

Perfect for DC Vacation

We stayed at this hotel while on vacation to visit DC. The hotel staff, restaurant staff, and bus drivers were fantastic. The desk clerked helped us find our way around by showing us how the Metro map worked. The shuttle takes you to the Metro station and picks you up. It was always on time. They also had a shuttle to take you to King Street in Alexandria which was wonderful. Hotel restaurant was very good if you feel like staying in.

Good hotel, IF you get a good price,otherwise no.

The location is mixed, only about a ten minn. shuttle ride to Regan National Airport, with lots of hotel shuttle runs.It is about eight blocks from Old-town Alexandra, ok if you have a car, but after days of on the go walking it is too far away,so that is not convenient. Not a lot of food options within walking distance, except a grocery store is located just across the street from the hotel, so you can stock up and have lunch with you when sightseeing.The hotel cafe is just inches from it's bar, and we had problems with a loud, obnoxious drunk swearing in the bar, and we were seated well within hearing distance in the cafe with a child.The menu is limited as well.The best thing about the hotel for us was the great front desk staff, they always went out of there way to help, especially Mo. I would stay again only if I got a really good price, otherwise I would look elsewhere.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

It is great if you do like we did and stock up on food from a grocery store near your hotel, food is expensive in the D.C. area, and you can save a great deal of money by making your own lunches and taking them with you.

A comfortable, reasonably priced hotel

Expecting a room, we found we had a small suite, which was very clean and comfortable. One down side could have been a slow draining tub in one of the bathrooms, except for the prompt response of a maintenance man who fixed it quickly. All staff were courteous and knowledgeable. We'll stay there again later this month.

A supermarket across the street, and a refrigerator in the room make for some inexpensive dining options.

VA/DC

The hotel was nice ...though you have to pay for parking. considering there is no gate and just anyone can park there with easy access to the hotels rooms is not that comforting. other than that the hotel was nice and had a great location ...not too far from either DC or the Airport which was amazing. The price was great too.

Holiday inn- alexandria, VA

It was quite noisy at night. At 1030 I could hear people on loudspeakers in the hallway, which was annoying. The walls were paper thin too, so you could hear everyone around you. Otherwise for just a couple nights it was fine. Cheapest I could find in the historic area while being clean. Close to lots of stores and restaurants, also pet friendly :)

Adult family adventure

Free shuttle bus to metro and downtown alexandria. All rooms have refrigeraters. The only negative would be the cost of the breakfast buffet for adults, but free for kids.
