Hello! How far is the hotel from downtown Alexandria? Is it within walking distance? Thank you!
Downtown sort of begins as you proceed east on King Street toward the River and the Torpedo Factory Art Gallery. That distance is 20 blocks. There is the King Street Trolley which runs every 15 minutes up and down King Street and is FREE. It stops about one block from the Old Town Hilton and normally runs to the Torpedo Factory before looping back--except the streets were somewhat flooded on the eastern terminus, so one had to walk a few blocks when we were there in late May.
It is in downtown Alexandria. It's right next to the metro, and a ten minute walk to the Courthouse, 15-20 minute walk to the river. There is a free trolley that runs the length of King St.
