Place was nearly empty it seeemed because of the holiday season. Will definitely stay here again. The ONLY issue we had was that Fox News was down:...

Rather than stay in the heart of Alexandria on King Street, we opted for a cheaper alternative at the Crowne Plaza. Well, we got what we paid for. The facilities themselves were adequate, including pay-to-park ($20/day), and a free shuttle to/from the RR airport, but the rooms were not very good. Comfort-wise the beds were fine, although there were stains...

I had breakfast at the Crowne Plaza this morning at Chequers Restaurant. Their $15.00 buffet was arguably the worst buffet I have seen in many years. Red potatoes that were black, bacon made totally of fat, cheap and tasteless bagels and I could go on and on. On top of all that I paid $10.00 for 1 hour of valet...

The Crown offers a free shuttle from Reagan Airport. It is quick and convenient. The hotel is about 8 blocks from King Street in Old Town, but it is a nice walk through the city.
