Loved the styling of the location.
Bed was quite uncomfortable, towels were rough, and the sheets were not as clean as we would've liked.
We liked the decor, the fact it is very pet friendly (we love dogs), the nod toward kids and their needs. It also has a very favorable location in terms of the riverfront, restaurants, free trolley service (up/down King St) and the staff is very helpful. We also felt that if you want to visit Wash DC then staying in Alexandria and taking the Metro to/from the city is a wise move and very convenient. The entire length of King Street, from the riverfront to the Metro station is very charming.
The only downside we found was the distance from the Metro (for use traveling into Wash DC), however the hotel makes up for that by offering its shuttle to Reagan National Airport 1x/hr, and you can take a free Alexandria trolley from the Metro to/from the hotel after 11am. With small kids, walking to/from the Metro is too far (~1mi) and in harsh summer/winter weather the walk would not be realistic for small children. That being said, the free trolley is a great option.
