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.

Great Location and very convenient getting off and back on the major interstate hiway. Very convenient to airport. The hotel staff was outstanding in their customer service. Room was very clean, well stocked and comfortable. The beds were extremely comfortable. Rooms were very quiet. Excellent Hotel and the price was very reasonable. Will definately recommend this hotel to everyone and I will use this hotel again on my next visit to the area.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AmiableTraveler An Unplanned (But Happy) Visit
An unexpected snafu left me scrambling for a place to stay on my recent trip to NOVA/DC. I was already in Alexandria, with pre-purchased concert tickets and a weekend full of plans, so I made a last minute reservation at this Holiday Inn, which I've driven past countless times on the way to Eisenhower Metro, and hoped for the best. All I really knew was that it looked good enough on the website and that it was right next to my favored Metro line into DC. (Yellow is the fastest route to the National Gallery, which I can't skip when I'm in town.)
The desk staff was friendly and efficient, the room service was fast and delicious and I got a great night's sleep in a comfortable, quiet and attractive room. Having a microwave and mini-fridge was a nice bonus, but the people working here were what really made it feel like a cozy home-away-from-home. Arriving in town and finding out that I was without a place to stay was not a good start, but they got me settled in in record time. After a nap I just needed some food to fortify for the night out and I couldn't have asked for better service. I just wish I had a better memory for names so I could give credit where it's due, but I'll be staying again for sure so I'll probably meet these women again and add a review with names next time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RobtD great service and shuttle!
The staff was very accommodating. Asked for 2 double rooms at reservation but they only had king sized avail. (due to school trips selling out the hotel) They said they would try their best when we got there. Surprise, they got us one double with a connecting room to a king for my family. Worked out perfectly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Only negative was the small bathrooms. (I hate split seat toilets) and no exhaust fan. (unless it was just broken?) Very nice breakfast buffet. Dinner menu somewhat limited. Service ok.
Decent bar for relaxing at night. Pretty quiet. Could not hear other guests and the bus loads of students were no prob at all! Very accommodating shuttle. Nice guy's and never had to wait long. I tipped the driver a couple bucks each time, a lot less than a cab! Easy access to the metro. FREE PARKING! Perfect hotel for those on a budget.

They had a crib waiting in the room before check-in. Also, there was a slight emergency when a teddy bear was left in the room, but housekeeping found it and made sure it got to its owner, making a little boy very happy. They were very responsive and friendly. Great location and easy to get in and out of.

My husband and I spent 2 days and were very pleased with everyone who worked their. The service and hospitality were excellent. We wanted to go to DC and the staff guided us to the Metro which is not even a block away and told us which train to take. I want to particularly mention Milton who drove the shuttle to Old town and was extremely friendly and just full of information. I will definitely go back to this hotel and highly recommend it. The café was very good and the people again were very friendly and hospitable.
