Loved the Sheraton Suitesfrom ladewig
Great for Business Travelersfrom Hou_architect
The staff is generally pretty accomodating. Ibrahim will help you with the shuttle bus, and is very courteous. The room service menu is not very extensive, but the items are reasonably priced for a hotel in this class.
A few tips: if you want a larger room, get a double. The king rooms are smaller. If you want to be in the middle of the tourist area on King Street, the Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza is a better location, but is not a "suite" hotel.
A few caveats: The tv station selection is pretty dismal: only about 15 channels, and 5 or 6 are news channels. They do have HBO, though. And twice I scheduled a wake-up call and never received it. Set your own alarm.
All in all, this is a good, solid property. It's not a glamorous hotel, but it is pleasant and comfortable.
A Great Place if on Businessfrom camseattle
Nice place to stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
It was a nice walk to King Street, but do not plan to walk to the nearest metro, Broddock Street-not a good neighborhood. After our first day, we came back on the King Street Metro and took the free bus that goes up and down King Street to the street closest to our hotel (after eating on King Street). This worked out well! We did find a grocery store a few blocks away.
Great stay at Sheraton Suitesfrom srbcas
Great place and a great location!from dgtray
The hotel is about 8 blocks from Old Town and it will take you 10 - 15 minutes to walk to King Street. The area is beautiful and I was never worried about our safety. There are lots of people walking, riunning and biking almost all hours. In Old Town you will find lots of restaurants and shops. We didn't take the time to tour the city, since we spent most of our time in DC but there is lots of things to see in Alexandria too.
The rooms aren't huge, but we found ours to be more than adequate. The bedroom is mostly the bed (king), but you have a sitting room with a chair, sofa and desk. There is a microwave, small refrigerator and sink area. The bed was very comfortable. There is a grocery store 2 blocks away (either direction) for any supplies you need. The pool is located on the 2nd floor and is covered and there is a jacuzzi. The hours are strange since it doesn't open until 4:00 p.m. The fitness center is also on the 2nd floor is small, but everything you need is there. If you are a runner like me then you will have a blast, because the neighborhoods are beautiful and there are lots of running trails. However, it gets hot and humid so get up early for your run or wait until early evening.
We didn't rent a car (I would recommend not renting one unless you plan lots of side trips) and used the shuttle to the airport to catch the Metro for trips to DC. The Metro works great and will get you close to most of the major sites in DC. Take the Blue or Yellow line to get you close to your destination. The only drawback was the wait for the hotel shuttle to pick us up at the airport.
We enjoyed our stay and will visit the DC area again. When we do we will be staying at the Sheraton Suites!
OK, not greatfrom Audiprof
One big note, book through the hotel website, the offers are better than the Starwood SPG site. I found a lower rate at the hotel website after booking at the SPG site but Starwood would not honor it as "we don't compete against ourselves". I didn't fully understand nor did I accept that answer. There are better places to stay in the Old Town area.
Great Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Wonderful Hotel!from stace11
The beds and pillows were great. Very comfortable. The room is very pleasantly decorated in blues and stripes.
We did not get a chance to experience the pool or the restaurant, so I cannot comment on either.
The garage parking is still $16 per night, however there is plenty of street parking overnight at no cost.
All in all, we had a great stay and would recommend the Sheraton to anyone.
LOVED ITfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel and rooms are very clean. The staff is very accomodating.
Top Local Tips for Alexandria
Parking garage... Be careful parking in the garage - they charge you a lot for daily parking. They have very, very small parking spaces so try not to have a very large SUV!!
Take the Walking Tour Take the walking tour of historical and interesting locations in the City. Also, Mount Vernon is close by -- history buffs will enjoy this (especially the wonderful new museum).
Metro The "conductors" at the Metro Stations were unbelievably friendly and helpful. Don't be afraid to ask for help in purchasing round trip tickets. They helped me w credit card purchases for tickets to and from DC and which "line" to take. People in the streets were also very helpful. Any time anyone saw us w a map out they come over and offer assitance. Be prepared to wait If the President or a visiting diplomat decides to tour a Historical Site. Security will just pull up to an intersection unannounced and close down blocks and blocks of city streets not to mention the Historical Site. DC is great and we hope to return.
