Oct 11, 2022 at 8:00 AM in Where to Stay
One of the most fun things anyone can do is set out to a brand new location and explore. There’s just something special about setting out on a journey. It’s in the nature of America to be the frontiersman who sets out to conquer the wild lands all by themselves.
The best location to do this is Alexandria, VA. It’s so close to Washington, D.C. that it makes for a dual trip. You get to explore the beauty of one of the busiest seaports in American history and can get a chance to experience a bit more history than your typical city visit. Which leads to the question: Where do you stay?
Old Town Livin’
When visiting one of the oldest towns in America, you should try to stay somewhere that excites you and gives you a memorable experience. There’s no better place to do this in Alexandria than at the Morrison Hotel in old town Alexandria. With free wifi, free coffee and tea, and daily housekeeping to keep your room in tip-top condition. Couple that with a central location to all the most fun spots in Alexandria, and you have a wonderful little boutique hotel experience. It’s difficult to make this better, but simply the ambiance of the Morrison Hotel is perfect. Plus, it’s Marriot owned so you can get more points for more hotel stays.

Stay Classy at The Alexandrian
Sometimes when you’re in an old city, you need to fully immerse yourself. When you’re staying at a boutique hotel right across the fabled Potomac from Washington, D.C. then you know you’re doing your trip right. The Alexandrian Hotel is the hotel to have this unique experience. Situated right in the heart of Old Town, simply steps away from nightlife, is one of the most beautiful hotels in all of Alexandria.

Relax at Your Retreat
Nothing spells comfort and relaxation quite like going to a spa. Now, when is the best time to go to a spa? Right after you spend an entire day exploring the city and taking insane water taxi tours of Alexandria, you can set up a full day at the hotel spa when you book your stay at Lorien Hotel and Spa. It doesn’t stop there either because after you have a spa day, you can have one of the best meals of your life at the award-winning restaurant BRABO Brasserie. This leads to one of the best stays in all of Virginia.

The Modern Bedroom
When it comes to Alexandria, there are plenty of ways to explore the past and learn about the history of the United States. Then there is Washington, D.C. to explore just across the river. In the heart of it, there is so much past that is restored to the modern and cultural centers that help push to the future. A hint of modernity can be found when you stay at Hotel Indigo in Old Town. It’s a way to stay connected to what home is. This gives you the chance to rest up in the most normal way for your explorations of beautiful Alexandria, VA.
