Good: location, free parking, modernized rooms, comfortable bed. I slept well. If you're using points, it's a good value. Bad: the little things. Shower didn't drain- nobody wants to stand in theirs and previous guests' dirty water. Group of high schoolers talking loudly in the halls and slamming doors most of the evening (I didn't hear them after 10pm, to...

Hotel was nice and clean. It has a pleasant lobby area. The staff is helpful. The walls are paper thin. I could literally hear the person in the next room through my vents or walls. F.y.i, the bathroom has very little space for moving around. However, I would stay at this hotel again.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and had a great stay. The location is convenient to just about everything. The metro is just across the street and Alexandria is a short drive or metro stop away. We were visiting sites and friends in DC and I couldn't have picked a better location. The hotel upon entry is new and...

No major complaints. Super close to the metro and a Starbucks!! We checked in on Tuesday and will be leaving on Saturday. Check in was easy and smooth. The front desk has been nothing but friendly and helpful. Tonight we ordered room service. We ordered Barbeque Chicken and the Vegetable Penne Pasta and some beer (around $75 total). We asked...

Just what you would expect from an older Holiday Inn - nothing remarkable, nothing too terribly bad. Wifi was slow and shower was hard to adjust. Zack at check-in was helpful and friendly, the woman who checked me out was a grump. Good value for money in Alexandria.

Stayed in a suite. Very spacious, clean and the beds were very comfortable. I definitely would stay there again. The restaraunt had delicious food, reasonably priced. Service was great. As I told the manager, the food was delish! The hostess, Sheila was fabulous.

Why I liked this hotel: we had free parking for our rental, the metro station was a 5 minute walk away, the staff were incredibly friendly and the workout room was large and empty when I went to use it. My room was clean and sufficient for a night stay and wifi was free. This is not a luxurious hotel,...

We stayed here for the Women's March/ POTUS Inauguration and therefore the rates were higher than what is normal. That said, it was a nice room and very clean. Also, it was a very close walk (3 min) to the train you take into D.C., therefore a great place to see when visiting the area. There is free parking on...

The lobby was beautiful. The hallways were a little dark and out of date - as well as some of the features in our room.Overall, if you are looking for something away from downtown D.C. and close to the metro station - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Reviewed 30 January 2017

Oy. Even without bed bug bites, this place is beyond sub-par. The front desk and wait staff honestly don't seem to try. It was clear that they and other area hotels were fairly overwhelmed by the Inauguration and Protests that followed, but guests were friendly and tried to be helpful. Not so the staff. The room was weary and in...
