Critic Reviews



You'll feel like you've stepped into a gorgeous Federal-period bed-and-breakfast at this luxurious boutique hotel just off Alexandria's busy King Street. With its parquet floors, crystal chandeliers, fireplaces, and furnishings faithful to the late 1700s/early 1800s, the hotel is often mistaken for a renovation rather than a structure built from scratch in 1985.



More like a country inn in the middle of Old Town Alexandria, this small, luxurious hotel isn't that old, but it looks exactly like the Federal-period homes surrounding it. The dining is marvelous.
