Arrived very late, no problem with check in but were charged a $35.00US pet fee. I understood that it was a $25.00 charge and I already thought that was ridiculous. The beds were very comfortable & no problems with the hotel other than the cost.

Please accept my apology for any confusion with the amount of our pet fee. While it was $25.00 in 2015, it has been $35.00 for over a year. As with everything, costs go up. The pet fee pays to have the carpet and all soft goods cleaned after a guest with a pet checks out as well as the cost... More

I stayed here for two nights in while attending a class in Alexandria. The hotel is close to a number of restaurants and offers free parking and breakfast.

Ok , so I think the idea is to check in and never check out. Checked in this afternoon and completed process in less than five minutes.

The room had a bit a of a mildew smell but the layout was breathtaking especially from the 8th floor. The little reading nooks looking out the windows were very relaxing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My husband and I recommend a stay here as you will not be disapointed.

It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the view from the corner room you stayed in. I checked the corner rooms on the 8th floor and didn't find the odor you mentioned but have asked maintenance to change the air filters in the AV units to ensure they are fresh.

Stayed there for the second time. Clean, close to freeways ,also not too far drive to old town Alexandria ! Free shuttle to metro . Free breakfast had lots of choices !unfortunately there is nothing within waking distance of it but you couldn't expect it for this price .So overall very good value for the reasonable rate!
