"Super DC Accessible, FREE PARKING, great price!"
Stayed here for four nights in mid October as our home base for DC excursions. Room was comfortable and clean, nice kitchen, bathroom, living/dining room, and bedroom. No sponge in kitchen, but was provided with dish soap and dish cloth. Five floor hotel, we stayed on third; lobby is on second, laundry, fitness room, and hot tub on first floor. Nice patio out back and in ground pool, but pool was covered. Breakfast was great, lots of options; coffee was so so but typical of hotel coffee. Also had a M-TH evening light fair and cookies. Free wireless. Shuttle to King Street Metro Station (10-15 minutes away; 20-30 minute ride into city from King Street). Great location, close to Old Town Alexandria, great shops and restaurants. This hotel offers a lot at a decent price for its proximity to DC, Free Parking!!!, laundry services and grocery shopping services available, food provided, and room comfort.
While it's not right down town and it is a little farther away, if you're driving to DC, this hotel is an excellent choice. You can drive to Arlington, the Zoo, Mt. Vernon but take the shuttle to the Metro for trips to the city. One thing to note: voices travel from the patio. We had a room right above the patio and had a group chatting outside until 10pm. Something to consider if you're a light sleeper.
