Stay in our hotels in Alexandria, Virginia, just down the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. You'll be near colonial Old Town, where the nation's founding fathers once ate and prayed, and Mount Vernon-George Washington's beloved countryside home.
Guests of our hotels in Alexandria can easily explore Old Town on foot. Historic buildings with monumental Greek Revival columns share the cobble-stoned streets with simple Federal-style townhouses from the 1700s. The stately Carlyle House mansion was the scene of intense taxation negotiations between British officials and Colonial governors. George Washington and Robert E. Lee are among the long list of historic attendees of Christ Church-where you can sit in their family pews. Our Alexandria hotels are a short drive from George and Martha Washington's plantation home, built in Mount Vernon in 1799. The immaculately maintained house is furnished with everyday objects from the Washingtons' lives, including Martha's tea cups and Washington's writing desk. If modern-day governance is more your style, simply head out of Alexandria on the Metro and you'll be on the steps of the United States Capitol in a half-hour.
Flashy boutiques and antique stores fill the dozen blocks of turn-of-the-century storefronts on King Street, near our Alexandria hotels. Artists display works in glass and ceramics in the open studios in the Torpedo Factory Art Center, in a 1918 redbrick warehouse on the Potomac. King Street's restaurants draw patrons from metropolitan Washington, D.C., looking for colonial ambience and inventive American cuisine. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson celebrated at Gadsby's Tavern, where you can enjoy filet mignon and roast duck at dinner.
Book our Holiday Inn® hotels in Alexandria in February for Washington's birthday at Gadsby's Tavern, celebrated annually here since 1797, or in September, when Mount Vernon hosts 18th-century music and craft demonstrations in the Colonial Market and Fair.
