We just got back from two nights at The Alexandrian and we really enjoyed it. The location can't be beat; you can walk just about anywhere of interest in Old Town and the hotel itself was kind of funky and charming. We also liked the spaciousness of our room.

This is a great hotel with a great location in downtown Alexandria. We stayed here the first week of transition from Kimpton to Marriott. There were a few glitches but the front desk handled them professionally and efficiently. The hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly. The Christmas Eve milk and cookies were a great personal touch.

The Alexandrian on King Street is a unique, boutique style hotel in the heart of Old Town within walking distance of many places of interest including The Torpedo Factory art center and the Harbor area. Everyone on the staff was very personable and helpful. The rooms are very nice. A good value for a reasonable price. I stayed there for...

This was a very nice hotel convenient to everythinf in Old Town Alexandria. Even though we had a room adjacent to the street, we weren't bothered too much by any noise. My only complaint was that we reserved a room with a King bed, and when we checked in they said they only had rooms available with two doubles. So...

The Alexandrian retains its Kimpton-era decor as it joins the Marriott's Autograph Collection. Front desk staff was excellent and helpful. Platinum status and a super friendly check-in agent netted me a nice suite upgrade. Good bed and workspace. Ritzy marble bathroom with giant soaking tub. Overall, it was comfortable on the verge of luxurious at a great price. My one...

Beautiful, historic, and stately. 11 minutes to DCA. Great location close to shops. We stayed on the 4th floor. The bed was comfy. Huge bathroom. Very clean. Valet parking is $29. Average wifi speed. The only downside was checking out at 4.45am and desk was short staffed. We couldn't get a printed receipt. It was supposed to be emailed, but...

I had originally booked the Kimpton Lorien and due to a broken fax machine they never received my reservation. (Extremely unprofessional.) I was stuck with nowhere to go and it was Inauguration weekend but this hotel had a room for me. I was already en route and got a little worried after reading recent reviews. Well, my stay was not...

We made our reservations the minute we found out we had tickets to the Inauguration. We were surprised to get a reservation. After reading all the reviews since the changeover, I was a little worried. We had a wonderful experience we arrived at 9am and were able to check in and our room was ready. The room was fine, the...

We were so disappointed with our room. There was a blood stain a dark red stain (potentially blood) the size of a quarter on the headboard. The bathroom was recently remodeled but not complete...the shower head was disconnected from the wall and the both faucet almost fell off. The picture frames were splintered and cracked. We paid $300/night for the...

Stayed here, unwittingly, the first night after the hotel transitioned from Kimpton to Marriott. Hard to review given that the room seemed the same (nice), but, as one would imagine, the front desk was a disaster.
