The outside of the property was very nice. I stayed two nights. First night the air conditioner was not working. Room was very uncomfortable but was fixed for the second night. Thinking now the property manager should of offered the first night with a discount. Overall the hotel is very nice but expensive. With the price and extra fees it should be top notch.

It was clean comfortable and convenient. Staff was friendly too.

Out of all the Kimpton's that we stayed at, this is the least exciting one in terms of decoration and amenities.

Great hotel that welcomes fur children with opens arms . Only issue is the smell in hallways, but in rooms no smell staff was awesome. No extra charge for fur child nice change from most hotels would go back again. Covid stopped room service plus restaurant so have a plan for food

hotel is not worth the price. It smelt like mildew. I booked a room with a tub, but the hotel wouldn't honor that request. Just not worth the price.

I enjoyed my stay. Everything was convenient. The front desk staff was very polite and amazing people.

In typical Kimpton hotel fashion, the room was lovely and clean and the people that worked there were friendly and professional!

The rooms smell terrible. The rooms may be “nice” but even the nicest place that smells like moldy dog just ruins everything. I told the staff at checkout who didn’t seem the least bit concerned at all. Very disappointing for a hotel that claims to be high end.

No ref in room no microwave in room front desk not friendly. Called for bath towels received bath mats. Booked Thu orbits and it was wrong hotel was there for wedding orbits was trying to accommodate us but supervisors at kings street Kimpton would not accommodate. No vending cafe or vending machines.

The hotel is beautiful and the location was perfect for where we needed to be. The staff was friendly and helpful. Didn't have a chance to try the restaurants but we heard amazing things about both. Will definitely be back again.

Good location, nice staff and the hotel is updated and clean. The spa is a good feature (we did not use it), and the brabo tasting room was convenient for drinks and food.

Stayed on the 3rd floor. Didnt have much of a view but we didn't want or need one. Just our preference. The room smelled great. It was very clean. We did ask for towels that never came but luckily I found a nice staff person in the hallway and was given towels. The front desk staff was nice. Overall, a nice hotel.

Our room was clean and quiet. The front desk lent us a phone charger as we had forgotten ours.

We were very pleased with the friendly staff at this location. Everyone we talked to was friendly and inviting. The hotel is beautiful and in a PERFECT location. We truly enjoyed our courtyard suite with its HUGE shower. The entire stay was delightful.

Perfect little boutique hotel in Alexandria. Definitely a good option for avoiding the super high charges of staying in the city.

It's a lovely hotel right in Old Alexandria, close to quaint shops, the water and the Metro to visit D.C.
