We just took a weekend getaway at the Alexandrian and loved it. The staff are so friendly and responsive, the hotel's décor and rooms have an understated boutique feel to them, and our courtyard view room with a whirlpool tub was fantastic. This is the nicest hotel close to the waterfront (about five blocks to the Torpedo Factory, etc.). If you want great accommodations right in the middle of Old Town, this is the place for you. We've stayed several times at another well known boutique hotel in the area, but this is our new favorite!
