The morning after our arrival, we had very warm, but not hot shower water. Our problem was dealt with, after 1/2 of our night's stay was refunded. When they couldn't fix it, we were upgraded. The staff is accommodating and courteous. The room was clean and comfy and quiet. We will be back!

I enjoyed the accommodation and appeared to have good service. At check-in I asked about wifi and was advised I would be given it for free. At check-out I noticed I had been charged, raised this and was advised a credit would be made. No credit received, so I emailed and didn't even get an answer to the email. It...

I stayed at this hotel February 10 & 11. We were in town for a cheerleading competition that was being held at The Gaylord Resort. Upon arriving they had given me the wrong room and it was quickly resolved. It is a beautiful place and quiet. The only Cons that I have with this hotel are: 1. There are no...

Had a meeting in the area and decided to stay the night. Booked same day on a discount site. Check in was quick. Room was nice but on the smaller side. I'm sure I received one of the lesser rooms since I booked on a discount site for around $50 less than their rate. No big deal for one person....

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...
