    Nicely convenient to Heathrow. Well equipped gym. Friendly staff

    An ideal stopover to recover from transatlantic flight. It is possible to eat in but a walk along the side of the Potomac followed by restaurants or shopping on King Street provides a good experiencce even for a solo traveller.

    The hotel is slightly lacking in character and the walk from Braddock Metro Station is not the greatest (though the room was fine and a courtesy pickup from National Airport is available)

    The rooms were way bigger than I anticipated! The bed was comfy, there was ample seating in the room & a desk for me to do my work.

    Didn't like that the rooms didn't have refrigerators or microwaves. The bathroom was a little small as well. Also, the parking garage & fitness center was out of service while we were there. So, we couldn't utilize either & we had to either park at the crown plaza hotel & take their shuttle back to our hotel or find street parking.

    I did not have any hot water on October 9 in the morning

    Good location about 10 to 15 minute walk from metro to Washington DC. In nice part of Alexandria, handy supermarket right opposite, restaurants close by, and a 15 minute walk to King Street (the main street in Alexandria). Hotel itself had great rooms - big with amazingly comfortable beds, and was immaculately clean. Staff were helpful and shuttle to Reagon airport was useful both for the airport and the metro.

    Breakfast was average quality and over-priced. And they have no idea how to make a cup of tea (it tasted of coffee for a start!). Would avoid and just head out for breakfast.

    Convenient to downtown and metro Staff pleasant and helpful

    Breakfast way, way too expensive for what you got on buffet. Places like Microtel and Comfort Inn have a better breakfast--and it's free!

    The location is very convenient for those traveling to Alexandria area and the dca airport. The hotel is a good value for the area. The beds are comfortable.

    The hotel is pretty dated. The self parking is in a very tight garage and costs $20.00 per night. Breakfast on Sat isn't available until 7 am, so if you have an early flight, don't count on it. The staff is borderline acceptable.

    Nice hotel. Very clean and friendly staff. Nice to have the shuttle to the metro and to Alexandria city. Alexandria is a cosy city.

    We expected the hotel to be near/in the center of Alexandria, but it was a 10-15 min walk to Alexandria. There is a shuttle to the town, but the first one is at 2.15pm.

    The room we got was I think the most simple of all... some basic amenities that usually hotels include were not there.

    Very clean and comfortable.Within walking distance of eating establishments and grocery store. Curteous and professional staff.

  • Couple
    7.0

    The staff was extremely helpful especially since we stayed during the power outage. They went out of their way to help us get where we were going.

    The pillows in the room were terrible. Need replacing. Sound was easily heard from hallways and other floors.
