I booked this room for $109 during Kimpton's annual sale.
The hotel is located on King Street, one of the main thoroughfares in old town Alexandria. It is fairly close to the metro station if you want to take a trip into D.C. and there are lots of nice shops and restaurants nearby. I have been to Washington D.C. several times and wanted something different which is why I chose this location in alexandria. If you are only staying for a weekend and want to escape the tourist hordes of D.C., there is more than enough to do and see in Old Town without even hopping on the metro.
As an inner circle member I received an upgrade to a "Hospitality Suite". The room itself was not a true suite (in that it was just a bedroom and bathroom) but there was a HUGE patio off the bedroom which would be great for entertaining.
As is always the case with kimpton, there was an evening wine hour. Unlike the other locations that i have stayed at however, the lobby area wasn't really made for such a wine reception. There were only 2 small benches near the door where most people sat but other than that no real area to sit back and relax. That being said they did have a pretty solid red and white wine as well as hot (non alcoholic) cider. In addition to the wine they had flatbreads from their restaurant- Brabo.
If you are planning a getaway in the DC area, are looking for a relaxing setting a little bit off the beaten path then I would highly recommend a stay here.
