Make yourself at home in our hotels in Alexandria, Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. You'll soon be tracing American history in Old Town and feasting on George Washington's favorite meal at Gadsby's Tavern.
Guests of our hotels in Alexandria take to the streets in true colonial fashion-on foot. Stroll the residential blocks north and south of King Street, down cobblestone lanes lined with Federal-style homes. In a day's wandering you'll pass Robert E. Lee's childhood home, George Washington's house of prayer at Christ Church and the Carlyle House, setting for intense negotiations over taxation between British officials and colonial governors. The Alexandria Black History Museum celebrates the contributions of African Americans toward the growth of the city. Pick up a free walking-tour pamphlet here of the city's historical African American landmarks.
Local artisans blow glass, spin pottery and invite the curious to watch in open studios at the Torpedo Factory. King Street's turn-of-the-century brick storefronts are now high-end boutiques and antique shops. Guests of our Alexandria hotels will find a variety of cuisines to choose from along King Street, though the kiosks and stalls of the Torpedo Factory Food Pavilion easily satisfy with pizza slices, cheese-stuffed Salvadoran corn cakes and freshly blended smoothies. Gadsby's Tavern has been sating the appetites of Alexandrians with hearty steaks and shepherd's pie since the late 1700s. Legend has it that George Washington's favorite dish was Gadsbys' succulent roast duck.
Stay in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Alexandria to explore American history. Our Alexandria hotels are a short drive from Mount Vernon, the beloved home of George and Martha Washington.

This hotel is surprisingly excellent and tasteful
I had stayed in other Crown Plaza hotels in other cities and internationally. I decided to try this hotel for my upcoming trip to DC. I was pleasantly surprised!.
I liked the room, ambiance and[More] the friendliness of the staff. Its location was also very good.
I will stay there again next time.[Less]
Near the metro and perfect for a weekend getaway to D.C. Reasonably priced for the area[Less]
Stayed for my cousins wedding
The wedding block was full, but they quickly worked with me to adjust the price to the proper amount. The room was big, clean, and had everything I needed: Coffee maker, fridge, etc.[Less]
It's the little things
Standing in 2-3" of water while showering is not a great way to start your day. Neither is having a less than optimal breakfast experience. Hopefully things will improve before my next visit.[Less]
Nice property! Friendly staff and comfortable rooms.[Less]
