I would recommend Gatsby's B&B very highly. We spent three nights in Alexandria and it was a short easy walk to the town centre and also easy access by car to get out of town and visit historic attractions in the area. Rooms were spotless, beds comfortable, breakfasts fresh and home cooked (delicious!) and owner was very helpful and hospitable....

Celebrated an anniversary there this week. The host was gracious and provided a beautiful three course breakfast. The room was cozy and pretty. There was a plate of sweets and a book of poems waiting for us. It was a perfect home for our special occasion.

On a recent visit to DC we were looking for a quiet place to stay that would still be convenient to restaurants and tourist sites. Gatsby's in old town Alexandria fit the bill perfectly. We had a car - nearby parking was plentiful - and access to the highways was nearby. But it was also just a short walk to...

My wife and I spent three nights here on a recent getaway. The layout gives you the third floor to yourself, and there is also a second floor sitting room. The proprietor, Marie Buckley, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. In addition to the varied and excellent breakfasts, she sprung on us several pleasurable little surprises, gastronomic and...

This really was a perfect base for our Washington visit. A lovely quiet location, superbly fitted accommodation with lovely towels, toiletries etc. a great bathroom and very comfy bed. The bonus was Marie's amazing breakfast each day, truly haute cuisine! Highly recommended

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. This B&B was extremely welcoming, clean and the bed very comfortable. This B&B is in a great location to visit both Old Town Alexandria and DC. It is a couple of blocks from Old Town. The stop across the street will quickly take you directly to the DC metro which is a...

Quiet comfortable place close to the hustle and bustle of DC. Marie was wonderful at sending us off with an excellent, filling breakfast that carried us well into the afternoon. Her hospitality and friendliness makes you feel very welcome. This is a great place to stay!

We enjoyed our stay at the Gatsby's B&B. The room was small but very clean and had all the amenities that you would need. The breakfast was over the top! Delicious and beautifully presented. The B&B is within walking distance of Old Town Alexander.

Marie is a fabulous hostess! Breakfasts were different and delicious. If you needed guidance as to where to eat and not to eat, Marie was informative. The location is a great spot and much to do. Everyone was friendly and happy. We had a great time and have decided to make it a every other year tradition. Wonderful B&B wouldn't...
