Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Visitor from California Hotel closing
This hotel is closing at the end of July and the rooms are not being serviced. We had to cut our stay short because two days we got up to no hot water.

I want to say a special thank you to Mr. Frank Campbell. I told him when I checked in that it was my birthday and later on that evening he brought up a cheese and fruit tray which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was a sweet and thoughtful gesture which I appreciated very much. I am very sorry that this hotel will be closing at the end of the month. Holiday Inn should keep it open. Everyone there is so nice and works so hard to make the guests comfortable. When I stayed there last year I was recuperating from being ill and in the hospital out of town. I am glad I got to stay there again under better circumstances.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by travel28 Hot Room And Awful Bathroom
The Room was hot and the bathroom was steamy and moist after a shower. The Bathtub drained slowly and there was a stain in the tub. This was my fourth time staying at the location. I will find somewhere else to stay next time, however, they are closing at the end of July 2014 to hopefully fix some of the problems.

Staff was very attentive and friendly, hotel was clean the personal for the breakfast buffet was really nice and we enjoyed talking to them every morning. The shuttle service was on time and we used them on four occassons to shuttle us to varous points and they were really eager to tell me and my Family on places of interest.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lee1two3 Shame this location is closing
This was the best value for travel from all destinations south of D.C. 5 minutes off of I95, free parking, walking distance to the Metro, good food in the neighborhood, 16 screen movie theater to relax in the evening. The staff was excellent over the past 4 years we have been staying there.

The room had no air for two nights. Complained to the staff, but nothing was done until the 3rd night and then I was moved to another room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beth2014 Great hotel and super value and location
I've stayed at this hotel many times over the past seven years. The staff is superior and truly cares about the guests. Anytime I've needed something, they have exceeded my expectations and asked if there was anything else they could do. On my most recent stay in June, I asked about making a future reservation and was told that the property was closing the end of July. What a disappointment. This is a loss for Holiday Inn.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this property. If your going to DC to visit museums or if your on business, this is a wonder Hotel with easy access to the Metro. Having breakfast included with the room is a plus, although the eggs at the breakfast bar were cold, the staff is wonderful!

We wanted to be near DC without the very expensive DC prices for lodging. This Holiday Inn allowed for free parking for our rental car while we walked to the nearby METRO station to do our tourist visits. Thanks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Abbiejomom Hotel Closing ..... WHY ?
We had a wonderful repeat experience at the Holiday Inn Alexandria - Eisenhower and was anticipating staying there again next April. The location is convenient for the Metro and was very safe. The staff of the hotel were informative, kind, courteous, helpful and very welcoming. They made our visits there memorable and enjoyable.
I am very disappointed to learn that this hotel is CLOSING at the END OF JULY 2014, to be torn down and will not be replaced with another hotel property (of any type/brand). It's a shame that this great staff that worked well together are now scrambling to find employment elsewhere.....with virtually little advance notice. My thoughts and prayers for the staff to find employment soon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Magbk Good comfortable stay
This is an old facility -- for example one elevator did not work during our stay -- and it feels a little tired.
Our room was large and very comfortable. However, -- we checked the book of services in our room and it said breakfast started at 6 am. So we hoped to make an early start for long drive. When we showed up at 6 am we discovered a sign in the restaurant stating a 6:30 am start for breakfast. Staff were not interested in the irritating discrepancy and our start was delayed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glo222 Great location and super hotel and staff
I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions. Each time I have truly enjoyed the convenience, staff, room, everything. However, this time I had an emergency back home and had to check out within three hours. The staff had my check out papers ready when I came downstairs.
NOW THE BIG QUESTION. WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO CLOSE SUCH A VIABLE, BUSY AND LOVELY HOTEL IS BEYOND MY COMPREHENSION.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jimb1965 an adequate hotel and good value; staff not freindly
I have stayed several times at this hotel, but it is starting to go down hill. needs an update.A marginal stay, but good value. Front desk staff not welcoming at all.
We are Priority Club members, but treated very poorly. I would stay some where else for sure next time
Holiday Inn needs to take a good look at the operation of this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CanonT Comfortable base for sightseeing
The Holiday Inn at Alexandria offered everything that a tourist could want as a base for visiting Washington DC. It is easily accessed from the Interstate and is within very easy walking distance to the speedy Metro line. And when you tire of the city, Alexandria is one stop away and the free trolley service down King Street enables visits to interesting shops, many restaurants and harbour ferries and cruises.
The rooms are well equipped and cleaned and everything is available for a good city break base

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Travel bug 2014 All around frustrating
The shuttle service was limited and inflexible. The bar staff was surly and pushy to have us leave. There was no food or drink option after ten at night: bar menu stopped serving early and every vending machine I tried was broken. I just wanted some water! It took me forever to order breakfast despite staff walking by multiple times. The room was comfortable and the location was convenient but everything else about the place frustrated me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Schmales Alexandri SW-Eisenhower Ave
Hotel was outdated and was informed that it is going to be torn down in the future so they will not update it. Overpriced for the value. Also the hotel bartender could not even make the mix drinks on the Happy Hour menu and they had limited selection of drinks and food items.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Northbound25 Great Location
The hotel is in need of remodeling because the interior appearance will be much improved with new carpeting and paint throughout. My room was comfortable, but very noise as there were "generator" sounds coming from outside or the elevator room. However, can't beat the price and the location. Last thing, this is the first Holiday Inn where you had to pay for breakfast, and this fact is not apparent on the website when booking.

We were in DC for only one night but this hotel was perfect for our needs -- location was good, close to the metro; free parking is fantastic; room was comfortable; staff was friendly. Hotel is a little on he older side but it was a reasonable price for the location and cleanliness and service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mail-lady Good hotel for the price
Location was good, although it is close to the Beltway so the traffic noise is noticeable. Close to the Metro station which made commuting to DC easy. Staff was very helpful. Hotel in general is a little dated with the bathrooms a little small, but overall rooms were clean and comfortable. Hotel offered a free guest laundry which was very nice, especially for anyone staying an extended period of time. Breakfast was good with both hot and cold options, however free breakfast is by voucher so make sure you make your reservation for the exact number in your party. Price was reasonable compared to other hotels in the area.
