Bottom Line

The 252-room Hilton Alexandria Old Town is an upscale chain property with above-average style, an impressive restaurant, and a great location in the heart of charming Old Town Alexandria. The rates are competitive for the area (and significantly less than in D.C.), but daily parking and Wi-Fi fees can add up fast. Rooms are spacious and modern with plush reading chairs, coffeemakers, and mini-fridges. Convenient on-site amenities include a fitness center, business center, and a full-service Starbucks. But the Lorien Hotel & Spa, right up the street, could offer a better value as it has lots of free perks and more in-room amenities.

Oyster Hotel Review

Hilton Alexandria Old Town


Upscale chain hotel with a modern, minimalist style

Built in 2000, this Hilton has a modern, industrial chic style and a great location next to the metro in Old Town Alexandria. The lobby is minimalist and sleek, with a black-and-white checkerboard floor and a small sitting area below an art installation of floating silver orbs. The wall behind the front desk is decorated with an artsy, graphic street map. A wide hallway leads to a full-service Starbucks, bar, business center and restaurant -- all updated in 2014 and 2015. Decorated in shades of gray, white, and brown, the hotel restaurant pairs good food with a modern industrial vibe. A Roman numeral clock face dominates one wall, and light fixtures are hung from draped exposed wires. The bulk of the Hilton’s clientele is business travelers, followed by couples and families. During the warmer months, the hotel occasionally hosts weddings and events in an outdoor courtyard.

Sizable and simple rooms with modern style

The rooms at this Hilton are simply designed and adequately sized, with space for a king-size bed or two doubles, a plush reading chair, and a workspace with an ergonomic chair. The design features a serene neutral color palette -- gray and white walls, white bedspreads, and simple wood furnishings -- but abstract paintings add a punch of color. Bathrooms are modern with sleek fixtures and marble tiles around the shower/tub combos. All rooms come with a flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi (fees apply), an alarm clock radio with MP3 connection, and a coffeemaker. Select rooms also include mini-fridges, and corner and deluxe rooms offer extra space. One-bedroom suites are available with one king bed, a separate living area with a pullout sofa, and a mini-fridge.
