Whilst turning in my financials for a conference I attended at this hotel in mid-March of 2014, I was reminded to write this review. While the suite that I shared with my co-workers was extremely nice and seemed to have been recently renovated, our first night at the hotel was anything but nice. Loud partygoers yelling, knocking on random doors, and vomiting in the hallways made sleep nearly impossible until after 3 am. Arriving in the conference area the next morning, I was greeted by chaos and the overwhelming - and sickening - smell of vomit and stale alcohol from a rental event the night before. The ballroom where portions of the conference were to be held had been condemned for structural damage from the previous rental - so the conference exhibits were forced into the reeking hallways. While I realize that the destruction was caused by outside parties, I did not feel as though the hotel acknowledged the disruption and - frankly sickening conditions that conference attendees and general hotel guests who were not part of a conference had to deal with. I also had issues at the concierge desk when I asked for the location of a particular metro station. He never answered my question - but kept insisting that I had to take a shuttle to Pentagon City - which is not what I was asking at all. Luckily, my phone had GPS and I found the station eventually. I seriously doubt I will stay at this hotel again whenever business or pleasure takes me to Alexandria - which is relatively often.
On a positive note - the sushi bar in the hotel restaurant was outstanding.
