Nice place and location

Was very impressed with the hotel, staff was very helpful. The King St. trolly goes right by the hotel every 15 min. and is free to ride, will take to to the water front or the Metro with several stops on the way. There were a lot of dogs in the motel but if I had not seen the dogs I would not have known they were there. Very quite and did not have a "dog" smell. The restaurant next to the hotel was a bit pricey but the waiter and waitress were very helpful with area information

Good stay

This hotel has a nice charm; not your cookie cutter luxury hotel. The staff was nice, the location in old town is perfect.

Excellent room & great service at value price

This hotel is located in Old Town, Alexandria, VA. It is a renovated older hotel but the rooms were quite nice with marble sink and tile in the bath and nicely done décor. The hotel offers free shuttle service from Reagan International, but it only runs every hour. However, if you call the hotel they will let you know where and when to meet the shuttle. They offer complementary coffee and tea each morning and a wine bar each evening although we did not use the latter. There are many restaurants near the hotel including a very nice French café next door. If you are a Kimpton rewards member, you can even receive a coupon good for $10 worth of items from the mini-bar in your room. The only negative was that the hotel is about a mile from the King St. Metro stop which provides the quickest and least expensive access to Washington, D.C. All things considered we would definitely consider staying there again during future visits.

It turns out that there are many historic things to see in Old Town, Alexandria that we did not learn about until our shuttle driver pointed them out on our return to the airport e.g. Robert E. Lee's home,

Irish place down the hill. Cliche in that it's yet another Irish pub, but it was comfortable with good food and drink.

great location in heart of Old Town Alexandria

My overall experience was great. I loved the quirky decor. The 5pm wine reception was a nice touch. It was my birthday and they sent me a complimentary bottle of champagne and truffles. The room was very clean and the bed super comfortable. great hotel

Great location for Old Town Alexandria Visitors

This is a unique hotel with steady guest traffic. Dogs are allowed and they are everywhere, so if you are a dog lover, this is the place to be. My room overlooked King street but was still quiet and very comfortable. A fun place to stay! The hotel is a convenient walk to the Potomac and harbours as well as many great restaurants.

Decent for the price

We have stayed at this hotel a few times on the past. Our most recent stay was somewhat disappointing. Quality of the sheets, towels, toilet paper used to be much better. However, the price was good for the location
