Arrived by train at 915AM on check in day, expecting to leave bags and check in later, what a pleasant surprise to find out a room was ready and we could move in. The staff were all friendly and helpful, the breakfast was a great start to our day, and was by no means meager pastries and fruit, but eggs, sausage, potatoes, waffles, French toast,, oatmeal, grits, and more! The nightly managers reception with drinks, and snacks was a great touch to the end of the day. The hotels location could not be more convenient for travel, Amtrak, and D.C. Metro stations mere steps away, in addition to the The King Street free Trolley. I saw many families enjoying the Hotels amenities as well. We did not park here but the price seemed comparable or less than other area hotels, the price for our Amtrak tickets was about what it would have cost to park, without fuel costs or a stressful drive from Norfolk. Nothing fell short of our expectations, and we will likely make this trip again.
This hotel does a wonderful free Breakfast with made to order food and a very efficient staff. The manager receptions at night are also done very well. Good location for access to Old Town Alexandria and the DC Metro.
The property charges $28 per night for parking in the facility underneath the hotel. There really is no other available parking for this hotel. The parking is dangerous and has overally small spaces in between large concrete pillars. Not only are you paying too much but the parking is impossible. Too many handicapped rooms. We were assigned one when we didn't want one at all. We also were not given the bed type on our reservation. Management didn't care. We were part of a party of 13 people staying at the hotel for an event.
We were welcomed by a very friendly receptionist, her name was Leah. She was very helpful in checking us in.
Staff did a fabulous job at the free breakfast buffet. They were efficient, friendly, and cheerful amidst a sea of families there over the July 4th weekend. 8 floors, but elevators are extremely efficient. Beautiful atrium. Very close to King Street Metro Station for easy access to DC attractions. Also right off King Street, the main drag in Old Town Alexandria. About a mile's worth of interesting shops and restaurants to walk down to get to the Potomac River. Great place to stay!
TV channels somewhat limited and a bit fuzzy.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Room were spacious and quiet, provided it overlooks the back of the hotel. Large lounge, kitchenette and other facilities ok. Good breakfast, included in the room rate.
No bath robe, no slippers, no shoe shine and a frighteningly empty fridge, i.e. no minibar in the room, bring your own. Rooms on the railway side are quite noisy.
