We stayed here for a family trip touring D.C. By D.C. standards, it seemed reasonably priced. It's about a mile to the metro station. We walked a few times and took the free trolley to the metro a few times too. Trolley is nice but doesn't start running until 10am. The hotel was nice, quiet, parking was fairly convenient, kids...

I highly recommend this boutique hotel that excels in warmth, comfort, and beauty. The decor in our large room and the inviting lobby was historic, elegant and tasteful; the service was excellent; and the location was ideal for getting to know Alexandria. They rectified our only issue by reimbursing the taxi cost to replace their promised airport shuttle that didn't...

This hotel was in a great location for exploring Old Town Alexandria. We used it as a base for heading to Mount Vernon, so we had a rental car, but you can easily take the metro, then the free trolley that runs along King Street. We also did the children's walking tour of notable Alexandria places and it was a...

Stayed early May 2017 for 2 nights after a conference across the river before flying home to Australia. Travelling alone. I wanted character and comfort and I found it in bucket loads. My room on a mid level had great view of street and the square. It was not noisy from the street when I was staying. Decoration is eclectic...

This hotel was older and was not the cleanest in the hallway areas. Advertised free mini bar but there was no mini bar and the little there was in the fridge cost an arm and a leg. Got a small room with a smaller bathroom even though we paid more than others in our party. Housekeeping came at unpredictable times...

This hotel has been several things over the years. Now it's turned into an Autograph collection in the Marriott family- my least favorite line of theirs. The hotel is noisy. Just plain noisy. There was some phone ringing type noise happening at all hours- I couldn't tell where it was coming from. The housekeeping crew continuously yelled up and down...

Beautiful, bright, welcoming lobby and room made our stay comfortable. Accommodating, helpful, smiling staff made it home. Wonderful to see others chatting around the fireplace in the lobby with dogs laying at their feet😊 Leased dogs are welcome, up to 60 lbs, additional charge. There's even a bowl of water outside the hotel. Rowdy guests, next door, received a phone...

Full disclosure, have stayed here before when it was a Hotel Monaco (Kimpton) and noticed a lot of things that have disappeared, such as newspapers in the lobby each morning, a daily happy hour, and free yoga, among others. Having said that, it is still a great location with clean, decent sized rooms, and a friendly and accommodating staff. Room...

This place used to be called Hotel Monaco and had a free happy hour. They would give you free wine from 4-6 everyday and it was a nice surprise. My father stayed here a few times when I lived in Old Town and when I cam eot visit last year I stayed there and really enjoyed it. Went back a...

Nice clean hotel, restaurant and bar are reasonable. Easy walk around the square with plenty of options for additional restaurants or coffee shops. If you are looking for a place that does not look like another chain hotel group then this might be your place.
