The Alexandrian, named for city founders John and Philip Alexander and built on their family homestead, embodies the spirit of celebrated Old Town. Its King Street location close to the waterfront and minutes from Washington DC by Metro or ferry is unparalleled. Inside, its 241 rooms and suites include four dual-level loft suites and three specialty suites ranging from the 629 square-foot Eleanor Suite (a brides’ favorite) to the expansive 1,600 square-foot Majestic Suite that can accommodate 20 for a wow-inspiring get-together or up to four overnight. The indoor heated pool is trimmed in wrought iron lounge chairs and the damask reception area is lively in turquoise and burgundy hues. Top-tier weddings and meetings regularly grace the 9,000 square feet of event space. Four-legged family members are always welcome and treated like royalty. Brilliant blues, yellows and reds adorn tufted settees atop geometric-patterned rugs embracing a bold dual-personality in this one-of-a-kind Alexandria hotel.
