Historic Yet Modern City Gets a New Addition

"We look forward to introducing our guests to the vibrant history and modern flair of Alexandria," said Mary Anne Russell, general manager. "Guests can experience chic dining, boutique shopping and sophisticated art galleries. The unique attractions of Alexandria are all within walking distance of our new location, and our nation's capital is only a short subway ride away."

The hotel also features a meeting room offering more than 603 square feet of flexible meeting space. Additionally, the hotel will be LEED certified, demonstrating the property's commitment to sustainability through water and energy efficiency, material selection, environmental health and innovation in design.
