Location OK, useful shuttle service. Reception desk staff gave unenthusiastic welcome on arrival. Breakfast was ordered off menu and table staff could not keep up with guest volume, had to wait quite a while for a seat, then for a coffee, then for food.

We loved the hotel location because you could walk to several places plus free hotel shuttle and the metro bus was near by. Breakfast buffet was a little pricey to me $15.00 but overall good. The room was nicely updated and we got a microwave when my husband asked.

I was in town on a government related trip for a few days. The hotel was average, room, lobby, gym/pool areas were clean. On my first day when I arrived I thought there was a strange musky smell in the hallway of my room. But after I came and left a few times I did not notice anything. The king...

Nice standard Holiday Inn--dependable brand that did not disappoint. We got three rooms recently for a bit of a family reunion and touring DC. Check in was flawless and friendly (we had made reservations a month in advance). The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. The bathrooms were a bit dated, but again, clean, big enough, and plenty of...

We stayed here for 2 nights for a visit to DC. Alexandria is a lovely, quaint old town which surpassed our expectations and was the highlight of DC for us.

The HI is located in a safe neighborhood, and is within walking distance of several restaurants . It is a older property, but has large rooms and they are very clean. The shuttle is pretty efficient.
