From start to finish I was glad to be here. The neighborhood is beautiful and close to buses and access to the metro systems , freeway. You can walk in ANY direction and find everything you need. You may be tempted to just skip D.C. and just explore this neighborhood all day. Safe during the day and night. Comfortable beds,...

This hotel was just eh...nothing really special about it. The lobby area was nice. The rooms were average. They didn't appear to be dirty but didn't feel overly clean either. The bathroom was not cleaned well, there were hairs left in the tub that were not from my family. I did sleep well on the beds. We stayed with Starwood...

Having previously lived in Alexandria fo rmany years we have seen this property change brand names, management, etc. over the years. When Kimpton took over, they made huge renovations. Since December 2016 Marriott has taken overt the management and added the property to its Autograph Collection. The hotel is perfectly located on King Street in Old Town Alexandria's historical section....

If you plan to spend some time in Alexandria, this is the hotel you should stay at. There is a free shuttle along King Street that goes to the other hotels by the station, but why bother when you can stay right in the heart of Old Town and walking distance from the waterfront, not to mention beautiful streets, great...

Spent 4 nights here during a business trip. This hotel was missing a lot of the things I have come to expect from Marriott. The location is centralized between shops and restaurants on King Street. There was a problem with the air conditioner but the maintenance department were quick to fix the problem. Over all not a bad stay but...

The title says it all. It's still a great location, but Marriott has no clue how to run a boutique hotel. All the personal touches are gone, including the nice robes. Other than the location, the only good point was the great bellman/doorman. It's now called the Alexandrian.

Checking in late for a two night stay we expected that our room would hold our family of five. However, the front desk personnel said that the rooms could hold a maximum of four due to fire codes. (Be careful if using Expedia to determine the number of guests allowed per room - double check with the hotel) Thankfully the...

We are SPG members, and this was our first experience with the Marriott Autograph Collection--this hotel is no longer a Kimpton. We were expecting great things. The lobby and rooms look very pretty. The bar at the restaurant is great. But we encountered numerous issues at the hotel--absolutely no toiletries in the room when we checked in, and it was...

Great location only 15 mins from DCA airport, walk to all of the restaurants and shops in Alexandria. Service was excellent- friendly and helpful. Room was very nice. Good workout room and indoor pool. Breakfast was good, dinner was ok. Room keys didn't work at check-in for myself or my co-worker, but they came and fixed it immediately. Very good...
