A really great hotel with one or two abraded areas. Nothing really horrible compared to some. Kitchen help was a little surley following a request for a bagel. Don't ask for room service during supper prep time! We were starving. We would have been happy with some toast. But no. We were left with our free chips from the room... More

This hotel is a great alternative to the large chain hotels. Excellent location and beautifully decorated. This was my second visit, and it did not disappoint. Great indoor pool with a lifeguard is an unexpected bonus. The hotel restaurant is very good, especially the breakfast.

Overall, this hotel is great. Fantastic location, funky (and spacious) rooms, etc. It was annoying there wasn't a coffee maker in the room (even the crummy, tiny kind). Aside from that, the only real downside (for me, anyhow) is that it's a "pet friendly" hotel and there were dogs everywhere. I couldn't go downstairs to the lobby without hearing a... More

From the time you set foot in the lobby, you'll know that you are in a great hotel. The fashion design is off-beat, but so creative and interesting! Staff is nice. Rooms aren't big, but very nice. Jackson 20 Restaurant serves up good Southern food!

This was just a one night stay as an after thought when planning to visit DC. We wanted to tack on an extra day and decided to try out Alexandria. The Hotel is nice and the staff was nice. We brought our dog who was really nervous in a new surrounding. We left for dinner and hotel staff had to... More

My husband got us a room here for my birthday. I'd worked in Old Town for years and had always wanted to stay here, and it wasn't disappointing. It has a wonderful boutique style, so it made my experience stand out from the other hotels I've frequented. From start to finish the hotel staff was very friendly. The room was... More

Such a great central hotel. Just 2 short blocks from the Potomac River where you can take the boat across to DC if you like. Great areas to walk your dog, nice shops and restaurants as well. This dog friendly hotel is wonderful. They really do treat everyone well. They have an on-site restaurant and also have a happy hour.... More

This was one of the best experiences at a hotel in recent memory. Stayed here for my birthday +1. Was greeted by Monique at front desk. She and everyone else were amazingly friendly. Champagne and cupcakes in my room, happy hour wine, great room, perfect location, excellent service. It really couldn't get better. Thank you!

This is a great hotel - if you already known Kimpton, then you already know that you'll get big rooms, great decor, friendly service and the best hotel rewards program out there. So, if you know you want to stay in Old Town Alexandria, and this is close to your price range, just book it and relax that you don't... More

Booked this hotel using some points to off-set a somewhat pricey room. The location is great for walking around and enjoying Old Town, but it's a bit of a hike to the Metro. We were able to Uber into DC for $15 though. Room was clean, but restroom fixtures a bit dated. We asked to be on a non-pet floor... More
