Travellers' Choice
Each Hotel Indigo® property is uniquely designed to reflect the culture, character and history of the surrounding neighborhood. Nestled on the shores of one of the busiest ports in America, Hotel Indigo® Old Town Alexandria is a charming enclave of colonial treasures and historic waterfront architecture. Between Old Town’s iconic cobblestones to the north and the Potomac’s storied banks to the east, our boutique hotel showcases the neighborhood’s dynamic allure. Traces of Alexandria’s colonial past are evident throughout the hotel, but the story got subterranean when crews unearthed a 50-foot vessel during construction. According to archaeologists, the ship was abandoned in the late 18th century and served as a crucial part of the process responsible for extending the waterfront. Take in views of the river from our guest rooms or from the restaurant overlooking the water, then head out to explore the quaint streets of Alexandria, once home to George Washington, Robert E. Lee and Jim Morrison. Just minutes away from the Ronald Reagan National Airport and the Interstate-495, the Hotel Indigo® Old Town Alexandria is in the center of all the local action while still featuring convenient access to D.C. and beyond.

Four of us stayed there over the Memorial Day weekend. Rooms were adequate size, clean and the mattresses and pillows were very comfortable. Location is excellent and very convenient to all our activities. The staff were friendly and helpful. Parking under the hotel was convenient, but expensive. Only complaint is the rooms we were assigned were not in the location promised when I made the reservation. Overall, would certainly stay there again.

What a gem of a property! I switched hotels mi-trip and landed at Hotel Indigo — what a breath of fresh air this place is! They were kind enough to allow me to check-in super early, which was tremendously appreciated. The room was spotless, spacious, and smelled like clean air with a hint of cucumber. And the view was amazing! I loved waking up to a sunrise over the Potomac every morning. The front desk staff greeted me by name every time I passed by, which was very cool (even ones I hadn’t met). They were professional, courteous, and friendly. I highly recommend this property in the very cute old town Alexandria.

We just arrived late last night and wanted to give a shout out to the great customer service. The gal who checked us in last night was awesome as was the gentleman at the front desk this am. But most important we wanted to give a shout out to the great friendly service from the Housekeeper on our floor, Ms. Yvette has such a helpful and friendly personality. You certainly have incredible and valuable employees in all 3 of them. Also should mention our room is great, river view fabulous and our bed is dreamy, comfortable and cozy. We slept great! Thank you

I was on a post vax road trip for a week and we ended our amazing whirlwind adventure with a night in Old Town Alexandria. That was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Fluffy linens, fluffy pillows, blackout curtains. Shower water and water pressure was great. Aveda rosemary and mint products in the bathroom. Nice towels and face cloths. Coffee pods in room. There was a refrigerator in the room that we didnt notice because it looked like a night stand. Check through the smart TV. Great parking. You can walk to everything in Old Town. The only down side was a previous guest set the alarm clock to 5:50 because they are a monster. I woke up surprisingly refreshed though.

We were very satisfied with our stay. Very convenient, central location next to the waterfront and restaurants. Modern, clean room that had all the necessities. We had a great city view as a bonus. Limited but friendly staff did a good job observing COVID protocols. The restaurant was the only mild disappointment. We were surprised it did not offer takeout as an option and food quality was just ok (coffee can definitely be improved). Overall, highly recommend.
