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...

I was traveling with four other for work. We arrive on March 29 around 7 pm. The in duty manager told us we only had four rooms reserved. We had a printed email confirmation stayed we have five rooms but the manager insisted we have four rooms only. Finally we spent half an hour at the lobby for them to...

Located in the heart of King Street, this hotel is close to pretty much everything Alexandria has to offer. It is an older hotel but kept up quite well. The lobby has plenty of sitting areas situated around a central fireplace that usually has a real fire going. In the morning, coffee is served (very good coffee). There is generally...

If you don't want to see the same boring carpet, walls and floors in most hotels check this place out. Staff was friendly even the housekeeper was nice. Room was clean I'll get the city view next time. I liked it so much I'm considering hosting a event here in the future.

The rooms have a lot of character and it is in a great location in Old Town but the hotel didn't really knock me over - at least not 5 stars worth. Breakfast is not included and I think that for the price this is not too much to ask. The WiFi was fine - no issues - and I...

We didn't stay here but stopped in for brunch on Sunday. The food was delicious and the service was totally lovely. This was when it was the Kimpton. We had a baby and after eating were very comfortable sitting for awhile in the lobby waiting for our ride. Very welcoming.
