We were scheduled to stay 3 nights in a suite (estimated cost for those nights was almost $1400 excluding parking). When we arrived and pulled out the sofa bed, it barely fit the room, and actually hit the door of the closet. The sofa bed had to be pushed way back against the windows to open all the way (leaving the closet totally blocked). The sofa bed was so uncomfortable we decided to only stay one night. We also learned that since valet was not available, parking was in a garage nearby. We asked if overnight parking on the street was allowed, and were told they weren't sure. So we drove to the garage, which was in an unlit area, not secured in any way, and only one other car was parked there. As two women, we did not feel safe at all to leave our car there and walk back in a dark area. We ended up learning that overnight parking on the street was in fact permitted, and parked there instead. It would have been nice to know that from the beginning. I gave the front desk clerk my parking permit and let them know we didn't use the hotel's parking; I was still charged $25 for parking at checkout, and had to get that charge removed. We also noticed that the courtyard area was a huge mess that night after people went out there for snacks and drinks. By the time we checked out around 10:30 AM, it was still a disaster. Not a great look for a luxury hotel. We checked out and booked another nearby hotel, which had much safer parking options, a more spacious room, better service, and a much more comfortable sofa bed (and the room was $100 less per night). Overall, we are really disappointed with our experience at the Kimpton.

Despite going through the pandemic and being a bit understaffed, they work hard to make your stay delightful. Rooms up to date and clean. Brunch was delicious. They are super pet-friendly. The gym is adequate, with equipment that is up to date. Lack of valet parking is a bit inconvenient, but we saw the front desk staff pitching in to help guests. Perfect location on King Street.

Great stay in Old Alexandria. The room size was good and staff very accommodating. The restaurant was great for dinner. We could feel the effects of Covid during our stay by the lack of valet and no breakfast service at the hotel. Our arrival was rather dismal as we had to find our way to underground parking garage which was not at all inviting or attractive, then in the employee entrance to finally get to the lobby. Also, no bellman to assist with luggage. Staff tried very hard to make it as convenient as possible. We would have had an even better impression if we could have had valet/bellman parking as the street side of the hotel has a lovely entrance. It was a bit far for us to walk to the heart of Old Alexandria, but there is a free trolley - or it's an $8.00 Uber ride. Had to ask for robes & coffee maker, but they were promptly provided

The check in was fairly smooth although I had an issue. I was told that the hotel accepted cash and was given cash to pay but eventually it was taken care of. The room is very spacious and came with disinfecting wipes on the desk. There was also an umbrella and yoga mat in the room. There were large bottles of shampoo, body wash and conditioner as well as a soap and a small bottle of cream in the bathroom. There were 2 issues I had with the room namely the AC which would make a loud noise when it shut off after reaching a certain temperature I assume. There were also problems with the keys from time to time and the lock once. The staff especially the receptionists were amazing!! They helped me with taxis, finding restaurants, printing documents and any other assistance I needed. The location is absolutely perfect for touring and dining it is within walking distance of everything.

I stayed here during my interview for a job in the area. The hotel is beautiful and is in an amazing location. The staff were absolutely phenomenal. I hated the private party in the courtyard as I had an early morning flight and needed to sleep, but the noise was so loud and I was on the 5th floor. It did end about 10:30 so that was fine. No water or paper cups in the rooms so that sucked, but overall this was a nice hotel.
