Stayed here for a business trip, and while the location is convenient and the common areas seemed to be newly renovated, my room left a lot to be desired. The location is right off I-495, and has plenty of parking both in front and in back, and the Eisenhower Ave Metro stop is just one block down the street. There... More

We were there on a business trip for four nights. Zac S. at the front desk was outstanding! Our room had no noise at all, and we were close to the elevator. Refrigerator, Keurig coffee/tea maker and microwave were great to have. Easy walk to the Eisenhower Metro and once we took the hotel shuttle to the Alexandria King Street... More

Stayed for 4 nights in October. The desk staff were very friendly and helpful, so check in was super easy, booked it thru Expedia so the price was also excellent for the area.

My husband and I stayed at this location for three nights. We chose it because of the closeness to the metro system, which is a short walk to the station. While there we ate breakfast each morning.

First, I want to say that I have never had this feeling at another hotel before. I read the reviews of this hotel before I selected it.

The hotel is an older property that's been recently refurbished. The rooms, halls, and common areas have new furniture, fixtures, and wall coverings. Everything feels fresh and modern. Whoever picked the hall carpet though made a mistake - it looks like an industrial accident although it's fresh and clean. The hotel is an easy walk to the Metro, so if... More

Nice hotel if you are visiting Alexandria for business or leisure. The staff was very attentious with my room preferences. If you eat breakfast in hotel, you may have a promotional fee when reserving in internet. The room was big and well equipped.
