I loved the service here. Everyone from the front desk to the breakfast staff, free shuttle bus driver, room cleaners was cheerful and helpful. The rooms are decorated in a contemporary theme and are comfortable; the mini kitchens are well equipped for an extended stay of 1 or 2 people. Many inviting restaurants are within easy walking distance; Old Town Alexandria is just a quick ride on the free shuttle bus. We were here for a family reunion and with the sofa bed opened up the quarters are really tight; a suite with separate bedroom advertised for 4 people (utilizing pull out sofa) still has a table with only 2 chairs and is a quite a squeeze. Would have been very comfy for a couple. For a 3 night stay, it was a minor inconvenience. Free breakfast was a full hot breakfast with eggs, bacon, potatoes, oatmeal, french toast, pancakes, fruit, cereal, yogurt, etc. Monday through Thursday there is free wine and beer and heavy appetizers that could really be a full meal. Shuttle bus runs in the mornings and evenings (no service from noon - 4 pm). It is true door-to-door service in the local area and is a wonderful benefit to staying at this hotel. We got a very good rate (although it ramps up significantly in the summer tourist season) for a February visit. All in all, we loved the hotel, just wish the rooms were a little roomier with the sleeper sofa opened up.
