Other King Street Hotels

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 13, 2009

King Street, the heart of Old Town Alexandria has numerous higher-end hotels for travelers to chose from. At the western end of Old Town near the Metro station are several expensive chain hotels like the Hilton, Hampton Inn, and Embassy Suites, while closer to the water are some of the older, more unique hotels like the Hotel Monaco and the Morrison House. All of these hotels are sure to please, well liked, and well located hotels near dozens of great restaurants.

Hotel Monaco - Kimpton's hotel Monaco is often the most expensive hotel in town, but it has the best location truly in the heart of Old Town closer to the water than any other King Street lodging. Prices are often as high as $200 in the off season, only going up from there. They have 241 rooms with free internet, huge flat screen TVs, and amazing rooms, some with two levels, and others as big as 1600 square feet! This impressive hotel has a pool, spa, fitness center, a nice restaurant and much more. The historic hotel was founded in 1749 and was formerly a Holiday Inn before reopening as the Monaco in 2008.

Lorien Hotel and Spa - The Lorien just opened in February 2009, and is part of the Kimpton chain, like the Hotel Monaco and the Morisson House just a few blocks away. This hotel has just 107 rooms and suites with a spa, fitness center, valet parking, free wi-fi, complimentary bicycles, free shoe shines, and much more. They also have a restaurant, wine tasting bar, and opening soon is a wine and cheese shop called "The Butcher Block." Rates start around $200.

Hilton - the Hilton is just steps from the Metro Station and is the largest hotel in Old Town Alexandria. It has a swimming pool, fitness center, Starbuck's Coffee, and a restaurant called Seagar's with indoor and outdoor dining. The biggest drawback is the $20 a day for parking in the often inexpensive hotel with per night prices as low as $100 in the winter.

Embassy Suites - rooms at this Hilton property are $130 to $230 in the off-season. The hotel is very close to the metro and has a restaurant, swimming pool, and fitness center. Self parking is $24 a day.

Hampton Inn - Hilton's Hampton Inn has 80 rooms beginning around $110-$210 per night in the off season, with parking available at $12 a day. The hotel has a complimentary hot breakfast, but no real restaurant or other major amenities on site.

Morrison House - another Kimpton Hotel, the Morrison House has just 41 rooms in a boutique hotel setting. Which often means smaller rooms and fewer amenities in exchange for a quirky, historic structure.

Directions: On King Street between the Metro and the river
