We stayed at this hotel for a 3-day weekend with extended family, as they had never been to Washington, D.C. We were not disappointed--the parking lot was spacious, the lobby and rooms were clean, and we got good service with a smile. As we were a huge group, we had to stay in 3 rooms, and the front desk made sure that our rooms were adjacent to each other.

The breakfast was hot and plentiful and had enough variety to suit everyone. There were a lot of restaurants close by. There's no pool, but the kids were able to go for a swim at the hotel next door. As we went around D.C. by car, we didn't get to use the shuttle service, although I did see the shuttle in front of the hotel with some regularity. I would just suggest replenishing the coffee more often in the evening. Otherwise, it wasn't really a big deal--there's the standard coffee maker in the rooms, and one night we got coffee (and doughnuts) at a nearby Krispy Kreme.

This was our first time to stay in Alexandria, but unfortunately we didn't get the chance to explore (especially the old town). We'll definitely stay here again and do that.

We recently stayed at this Holiday Inn on a trip to visit Washington DC. The hotel though an older hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is right by a Metro station so very convenient for getting into Washington to see the sights. The parking is free and we were able to add breakfast to our hotel deal. The free trolley to take you to Old Town Alexandria also picks up at the Metro station so it is also very convenient. And we really wish we had had more time to spend in Old Town. There are so many interesting and neat shops as well as some great restaurants!! Definitely hope to return to the area and we would stay at the Holiday Inn again!!

Stayed July 2013, travelled as a couple

We were visting the DC area and stayed in Alexandria. Free breakfast. Free parking. About 5 min from the Huntington Metro stop. The hotel is very up to date, clean and helpful. The staff was so nice and friendly. We were given restaurant suggestions and help with using the Metro to get to our destinations in DC. A young lady named Carmen was a sweet gem! Even though we checked in late (after 10pm) she was a energetic and personable as if it were in the afternoon. Our room had 2 queen beds & was spacious. Breakfast was nice and had an freindly attendant that was constantly refilling items. There was also a neat pancake making machine I had never seen before. I would gladly stay here again.

After cancelled flights and being re-routed to DC from Philadelphia and then trying to find a hotel with the help of a friendly local we thought this is where we would be staying. Lo and behold when we arrived at 1:30 am 29th June after almost 24 hours traveling the receptionist claimed she had no booking for us and they had not taken any since 7pm the previous evening. This was despite us having a confirmation number. The receptionist was in training and hadn't a clue how to even use the switchboard telephone to call central reservations and confirm the booking number we had been given. Nor was she very helpful when we asked if there was any where else locally she know of that had availability. Even when the person who had been training her eventually turned up it made little difference he was just the same - clueless. While the hotel appeared well maintained and fairly new this did not help me. I fully intend to pursue this matter with holiday inn group.

We booked 9 consecutive nights at various Holiday Inn Express hotels as part of our round trip from Toronto down to the Washington DC/Philadelphia area and back...

We spent nights 2 through 5 of this trip at this (Alexandria Virginia) location which had a room with 2 Queen beds as we were looking for (with 4 in our party)...

We had also reserved a roll away/cot so we could 'spread out a bit' and all have a more comfortable sleep; it was waiting in our room for us when we arrived!

From the initial call to confirm that we would get a cot to the very cordial discussion about how we should set up for our 4 day and throughout those 4 days, the staff were VERY friendly; very important to us so we could feel comfortable and happy to be in Washington!

They suggested we sign up for the BIG BUS tour which turned out to be a foundation for our sightseeing... we were able to get around the capitol to many places, including many of the museums, and also take advantage of several free admissions, including the Potomac River tour, the Crime and Punishment Museum, as well as the Wax Museum...

Unfortunately, we ran out of time so we would be very interested in coming back to Washington again in the near future
- This Hotel would be our number one choice, with all the positives noted above, as well as the relatively convenient location (near the last Metro Stop on the Yellow Line - Huntington)
- We were able to take advantage of the hotel shuttle on many occasions to get back and forth to the Metro (subway)
