As locals from Northern Virginia, we booked this hotel as it was close to an event we were attending this past weekend even though we live in the area. I was pleased to see the area that this hotel was in, close to Old Town Alexandria but not too close to DC to be in a sketchy neighborhood. Our check in and parking were effortless and all of the hotel workers, from the valet to the front desk staff were very helpful and seemed to enjoy where they were working.
The hotel's rooms, are somewhat dated, but you can tell at one point in time this hotel was the cream of the crop. I'm not complaining, as the beds were soft, but the TVs were not flatscreens, and the minibar looked like something out of the early 80s. The toilet ran for about 2-3 minutes after each flush, and the telephone didn't work in our room, even though it was plugged in. The elevators were running slow, but as i was here on a leisurely trip, it really didn't matter. May be something to consider though if you are coming here on a conference and you need to get down quickly from the 30th floor to a meeting... One other note, this hotel was extremely QUIET. I'm sure it was not full at all, but I heard nothing in our room.
Try the bar at Finn & Porters - we had excellent service from our waiter, Prince, who was kind enough to put together a take-to-our-room package of the excellent food at the restaurant (vs. ordering room service). We also had wonderful service from Eric at the breakfast buffet.
All in all, I would stay at this hotel again for the rates they gave us and proximity to Northern Virginia sites.
