This is a lovely hotel in a pleasant area, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Although we had a slightly reduced rate for a conference / meeting, it was still an expensive stay - especially considering that breakfast was not included in the room price. The room was fine and the bathroom pretty good, although both felt slightly dated compared to the contemporary and striking lobby area. The catering at the meeting was very good, so I have given a generous overall 4 rating based on the location and food.
Slight grumbles would be that the bottle of water in the room was priced at $5 - which was a bit steep since a similar bottle cost $1 at the pharmacy over the road, and there were no tea / coffee making facilities in the room either - although plenty of coffee places close by.
The other slightly negative thing is that we were told when booking that there was a shuttle every half hour from Ronald Reagan airport but we waited and waited and no shuttle showed up. In the end, we rang the hotel and they said they would send the shuttle but it then took well over an hour to arrive, and we had a to call a couple more times, so we probably would have been better just getting a taxi.
It is very well placed in Alexandria with lots of shops / boat trips etc within easy walking distance but overall it would have to be less expensive for me to consider staying there again.
