In DC for 7 day business meeting.
Hotel is a fairly strong choice for business traveler. The hotel is convenient to Old Town Alexandria, walkable to many restaurants. The beds are comfortable with newer, white linens. Rooms were clean and had newer carpets, robes, etc. Nice flat screen TV, clean bathroom with glass shower. There are some limits due to building structure (closet for hanging suits is very small), but overall decent rooms. There are not many good views available, but this is going to be true for all hotels in the area. Wi-fi available, but I did not use as I have aircard.
Service is good – coffee in the morning, wine at night. All the workers I encountered were friendly and helpful – well above average compared to other hotels I have stayed at. I did not try room service, but did eat at the hotel and the food was a little better than typical hotel food.
If you exercise, the facility is pretty good, free weight dumbbells, 2 bikes, 2 eliptical and a couple of treadmills – all machines have TV. Open 24 hours. Spa and steamroom also, but I did not try them.
Overall, a strong choice for business travel
