Located within Historic Old Town Alexandria, there is a free trolley that stops in front of the hotel that allows families to explore the town, the Friendship Firehouse Museum and more. Washington D.C. is only 20 minutes away too. After a day of seeing the sights, families can head back to the hotel and spend some quality time by the seasonal outdoor pool. The kids can take a dip and swim, while the adults can relax and unwind on the surrounding pool deck chairs. The guestrooms and suites feature one king or two double beds, a coffee maker and a flat screen television. The spacious suites feature a sleeper sofa. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is available throughout the hotel, making it convenient for both kids and adults to stay connected to work, home and school. The free hot breakfast buffet is a nice way to start each morning with delicious items like eggs, waffles, hot and cold cereal, juices, coffee, muffins and more. And if your family is in a hurry, you can grab an On the Run breakfast bag Monday through Friday as you head out the door.

I spent two nights recently (Oct 2019) at this property and was very satisfied. Cost, location, staff, etc. were all great for the area. It was convenient to a conference at a much more expensive venue and made things a lot easier on my expense budget. Super-convenient to the Metro and although I didn't get to explore Old Town, this property is right in the heart of things.
Stayed here to participate in the Marine Corps Marathon. The King Street Metro station is very close and convenient to get to the event. Since this station is close to the end of the Blue and Yellow lines, the trains are mostly empty in either direction and so makes the journey comfortable. The free tram that runs on King Street gives access to great restaurants and establishments on its route down to the waterfront. DCA Airport (Reagan National) is just 3 stops away on the Metro. Room/amenities are nice and so is the staff. A decent choice of breakfast items.
