Our hotel savors Old Town’s new treasures
It should come as no surprise that we adore exploring downtown DC — a stunning capital defined by its invigorating buzz, news-making residents, world-renowned museums, and iconic memorials and monuments. But our hearts hold a special place for Old Town Alexandria, a beautifully preserved historic district that sits on the edge of the Potomac River.
Relics of the past still shine in the town that George Washington once called home; simply look to the historic architecture and cobblestone streets that contribute to Old Town’s preserved look. Yet these days, red brick sidewalks also hum with a contemporary energy that lures visitors from presidents to pet lovers to some of the region’s best eateries, arts events, boutiques, and historic attractions. Nearby neighbors range from the George Washington Masonic National Memorial and King Street's Market Square and City Hall, to Gadsby's Tavern Museum and the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Every 15 minutes, the (complimentary!) King Street Trolley shuttles passengers along Old Town’s main strip.
