If you don't want to see the same boring carpet, walls and floors in most hotels check this place out. Staff was friendly even the housekeeper was nice. Room was clean I'll get the city view next time. I liked it so much I'm considering hosting a event here in the future.

The rooms have a lot of character and it is in a great location in Old Town but the hotel didn't really knock me over - at least not 5 stars worth. Breakfast is not included and I think that for the price this is not too much to ask. The WiFi was fine - no issues - and I...

We didn't stay here but stopped in for brunch on Sunday. The food was delicious and the service was totally lovely. This was when it was the Kimpton. We had a baby and after eating were very comfortable sitting for awhile in the lobby waiting for our ride. Very welcoming.

I come to the DC area often on business and have stayed at this hotel several times in the last few years. It's a neat place, a historical building that has been appropriately renovated but maintains the historical charm. Staff has always been friendly and accommodating. This is my first stay here since the brand transition from Kimpton to Marriott,...

Location in old town Alexandria was great. I spent the weekend here with my husband. The hot water never worked properly during our stay. They sent maintenance up twice. Neither time resolved the issue. I got tired of complaining and decided to just enjoy my time as best I could, with or without a hot shower. It would have been...

I've stayed at this hotel many times when it was the Hotel Monaco and run by Kimpton. Kimpton is great company, and I always had a great stay, so I was a little concerned when it was sold at the end of 2016 to Marriott. But, no worries, the staff is still friendly and helpful, the rooms are great, and...

This place has nice facilities and the rooms are nice and clean. The only problem is the service. Twice during our stay they either completely forgot our wake up call or it was very late. Also the valet parking service didn't work. All but one time when I called down to get the car, the front desk forgot to tell...

The Alexandrian is located in the heart of Alexandria and a couple of miles from National Airport. This hotel was selected in a moment of desperation following flight delays and cancellations and it was a welcome respite from that chaos. The property is classic on the outside and a touch hip and funky on the inside. The staff was extremely...

This place is beautiful. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Upgraded rooms. Centrally located. Wonderful restaurant and bar. Everything that you are looking for in a grand hotel but with a boutique hotel feel.

I can't stress how the staff when out of their way to welcome you here. Everyone in the hotel and attached restaurant went beyond being friendly and helpful. Room was immaculate and comfortable. In the heart of Old Town-- we booked thru hotels.com last minute and got a great rate. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
