Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ConfAttendee Great location
I liked the proximity to the airport even though I didn't fly in. I had a great view of the Potomac. Great distance from DC, you are there in minutes. I was surprised at how old, worn and filthy the carpet was and how dirty the little sitting chair was. The desk chair had cracked, split, (exposing stuffing) and peeling upholstery. Wasn't sure if they attempted a "stressed furniture" style or what ,but it was pretty extreme. The staff is friendly and even fun. I was there for a conference. I had to wear a blanket in the that room. One conference attendee went back to her room for towels to cover herself with. Outwardly this hotel presents well, some details need to be tended to. Be prepared to spend extra for parking....daily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Broadus120 Nice hotel and good location
Hotel is in a good location close to the river. There is a nice walking/jogging trail along the river and it takes you down to old town. The hotel runs a shuttle to King St. which is very convenient. It is close to National Airport and all the activities in Alexandria. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. There are plenty of small but nice restaurants close by as well as a Trader Joes and Giant food store for shopping. All in all a great hotel for the price, though it does not have a pool which was my only disappointment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by qlq1 location is the best part
Old hotel, needs renovation. Location is nice, room service is pricey but good. The smell in the elevators are nauseating!!! You may want to use the creepy cement staircase.

The last three times I have stayed I did not receive a welcome gift as I have always received in the past.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John USA Fiscal Cliff package Excellent Value
If your planning on visiting Alexandria, VA you must consider the Crowne Plaza. It is a pleasant walk from downtown and has hourly shuttle service if you'd rather. The Fiscal Cliff package included both parking and the breakfast buffet! It is hard to find another hotel in this area that will offer you either, let alone both in this area in a hotel package.
The hotel does not have a swimming pool, but has access to the Holiday Inn pool about three blocks away, most easily accessed by shuttle, although I'm not sure how the return would be handled. This was not an issue for us, since there was so much else to do in the area, we didn't have time to swim anyway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Essexkids Great location and price, close to all
The hotel in general was in a great location. Away from all the commotion of DC but nice downtown of Alexandria. The absolute only thing was you had t pay $20 to park. almost didn't stay for that reason.. made no sense. If you were a paying hotel customer, why do you pay to park in their lot?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jeffgulati Great value, great location, friend staff
We got a great value during the 4th of July weekend. The hotel is walking distance to King St. (8 blocks) and close to the waterfront. There is a complementary shuttle that takes you to King St. if you find it too far to walk or if it is raining and also a shuttle to metro and airport. The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was adequate, view was nice, and outside noise level was very low. Food at the bar was excellent, but drink selection was a little limited but overall ok. For what you pay and the free shuttle, this is a great place to stay even though it is a little out of the way.
