"Friendly, Friendly, Friendly"
This Hotel is the top of my list in Alexandria, VA. I have visited there many times, business, pleasure, reunions etc. and having found this hotel on my last visit I am sorry I didn't fine it sooner. The staff on the front desk is wonderful, especially Jazzmine, but kudos to all others, too. they welcome you every time you walk through the door, call you by name, and generally recognize that you are special, a guest! The valet parking crew/bellmen are also outstanding. Want something out of your car or want your car quickly, they make it happen. The spa,I didn't use it but my daughter did, was WONDERFUL. RELAXING AND ELEGANT IS how she put it. There is wine and snacks in the lobby from 5-6 p.m., and the wine isn't out of a jug! I had a corner room with a balcony. It was winter so balcony wasn't really necessary, but had a couple of nice days where I could open the door and enjoy the fresh air.I am leaving a really good part until last: The Hotel is pet friendly and I mean friendly. Treats for your pet if you allow it and pets and greetings all around nd. No cringing as in some pet "friendly" hotels. I will stay again if I go back, every time.
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!"
My co-workers and I traveled to Alexandria for business and stumbled across the Kimpton given its close proximity to the King St. metro line. I liked the boutique look of the hotel and was not disappointed. Just like Alexandria itself, the hotel has a historic, brick-laden charm (everything in Alexandria appears to be made of brick). The staff was wonderfully accommodating and friendly, the fitness center (we had read there wasn't one, but there is and while it's not a high-end gym, it's stocked with equipment that's fine for a regular workout), and the free wine happy hour was a nice little bonus. There are two restaurants on the hotel grounds. While we only enjoyed one, the other looked lively. We'll be back to Alexandria later this year and I expect we'll be staying there again. One little caveat: The bathroom doors are barn-door style, frosted glass sliders, so the privacy wasn't as private.
"Cute boutique hotel"
We stayed here while visiting schools in the area. Super location and very quaint. Courtyard and lobby were very nice, rooms look great and are nicely updated. The only reason I didn't give it the highest rating are because it was noisy, they seem to lack any noise insulation from room to room and the rooms are great when the sun is out but too dark at night. They need better lighting. But decor was nice, and bathroom was spacious and nice. Everything was clean.
"Great stay, very comfortable"
My husband and I stayed here with a group of friends, we found the location convenient and parking was easy for this neighborhood. We felt the rooms were a little dark but otherwise loved everything about the place, lobby and rooms were clean...we never made it to the bar/restaurant but hope to next time we're in town.
"More room lighting needed. TV channels don't match the guide."
My trip arranger selected this due to its proximity to the HQ office. It's nice, but in the room there aren't enough lights. Two wall lamps extend over the beds. There is an armchair in the corner, next to a socket, but no floor or table lamp, making reading a moot point. Then, the work surface underneath the wall-mounted TV, there is no lighting in the ceiling, hanging from the ceiling, or table lamps. I couldn't see to do any work at night. There was a power strip that served as an extension cord under the desk with at least 3 devices plugged into it. There is no safety latch on the inside room door, only the handle lock is present. The TV channel guide card lists 64 channels. Using the remote, I could only bring up 25 channels. And, none of them matched the corresponding guide channel number. The front desk indicated the guide card was for the HD TVs that were being swapped for the old analog TVs, but the change hadn't been made in every room yet. Fortunately, the house Wi-Fi was sufficient for me to watch Amazon Prime Video and Netflix on my laptop. Would I stay here again' Maybe.
