Our family of 3 spent four nights here while visiting DC. The proximity to the metro concerned me as the track ran directly behind the hotel. Soundproofing was amazing, never heard a thing.
Pros: complimentary breakfast (dinner too during the week), close to metro, great staff, shuttle service (although we did not use it), they'll do grocery shopping for you
Cons: rooms were not what I had
expected, our bathroom cabinet was missing a drawer when we arrived, there was a stain on the carpet in the center of the room, there was a "C" on the wallpaper above the kitchen sink, the light above the sink didn't work. There was not a safe in the room. The electrical panel was ugly on the wall in the middle of the room. Housekeeping left a bit to be desired-one afternoon we came back to find dirty towels on the floor behind the bathroom door, our first day, they didn't even fold up the bedding our daughter used on the sofa.
We are happy we chose to stay in Alexandria so we were able to visit Old Town as well as D.C. during our stay.
