The attached restaurant, Jackson 20, receives rave reviews
Several prior travelers wished standard rooms were a bit larger

Set in Alexandria, Virginia's Old Town, this boutique hotel earns high praise for its quirky design. Although some guests say standard rooms are on the smaller side (at 300 square feet), The Alexandrian, Autograph Collection's 241 rooms and suites do feature vibrant colors, bold accents and modern furniture. Between the decor and friendly customer service, recent visitors said that this hotel made them feel like royalty. Family-friendly amenities, like the heated pool, are a particular hit with the younger crowd. Other perks include complimentary evening wine hours and delectable American fare served at Jackson 20. Plus, with the shops and bars of Old Town and downtown Washington, D.C. within easy reach, the Alexandrian, Autograph Collection makes a great home base for exploration. Plus, this Autograph Collection hotel's affiliation with the Marriott brand means Marriott Bonvoy members are able to earn or use points for a stay here.
