  • The Alexandrian Hotel was not our original wedding venue pick, but like SO many people - 2020 changed our plans. Thankfully, we found the Alexandrian and were able to pull off a wonderful outdoor wedding. Ashley was super responsive and easy to work with, especially considering we booked the hotel about 2 months out from our day - so we crammed a lot of planning and random questions into a very short period of time. The food was delicious, our guests loved being able to stay on site and enjoy Old Town, but honestly the biggest thing was having a totally worry-free wedding day because Ashley and the team at the Alexandrian are true pros! Also, the bridal suite is the *perfect* place to get ready with your bridesmaids!

  • I have a rather unique experience, as my wedding was rescheduled three times. First, my fiance was in a very serious bicycle accident riding into work three weeks before our September 2019 wedding at the Alexandrian. We had been planning this event for over a year from across the country and we were both devastated to postpone. The team at the Alexandrian was very compassionate and caring. With guidance from his medical team, we were able to reschedule for April 2020. Alas, COVID-19 had other plans in store for us and we postponed again. After serious consideration, we stuck with our most recent rescheduled date in September 2020. I am glad we did! It was absolutely wonderful! We were able to have the ceremony and reception outside in the stunning courtyard. There were great safety procedures in place for guests and staff. Clearly marked signage for social distancing and numerous hand sanitizer stations. We did have a smaller guest list, but with tables being further apart it was th... Read more

  • The Alexandrian was exactly what my husband and I were looking for for our December wedding. We had our first date and got engaged on King Street, so it was only appropriate that we got married on King Street in the heart of the city where our story began! The location of the hotel is so convenient with easy access to the airport, restaurants, shopping, and things to do for our out of town guests. We also loved having everything in one building - it made planning all the logistics incredibly easy as the bridal party all got ready in suites, we had our ceremony and reception in the ballroom, were able to utilize the courtyard for our cocktail hour and for guests to get some fresh air during the reception, we even used the hotel lobby for our first look pictures in front of the fireplace. We did have a day of coordinator who was essential in handling all the day of details and coordinating with the hotel catering manager to ensure all of our decor was set up for both the ceremony and...

  • We booked our wedding reception at The Alexandrian and could not have been more impressed. Annee and the team took care of every detail! I stayed in the Eleanor suite and my husband stayed at Morrison House. The pictures are stunning! The food was fantastic. Our guests are still talking about it. We were impressed by the bar service as well. They made sure everyone had a 5 star experience. For future brides and grooms: If you're looking for unparalleled customer service and a hotel that will go above and beyond for your every need, look no further!

  • We stayed at this hotel on our wedding night, and I used the Mediterranean Suite to also get ready for our big day! My 2 bridesmaids and I had our hair and makeup done in the suite and we ordered room service, the hotel was very professional and accommodating despite recently changing in management!

  • We chose this hotel for our room block because of its prime location and affordable price. Unfortunately, the hotel is extremely disorganized. Guests had a hard time booking rooms on the room block site, reservations frequently went missing, many guests did not receive welcome bags, etc. The whole thing just seemed much more difficult than it needed to be. Would not recommended for couples looking for room blocks.

  • The Alexandrian is a beautiful hotel and an ideal setting for a wedding, but they suffer from significant mismanagement and incompetence. We chose this venue in October of 2016 when it was under different management and still the Hotel Monaco. Under the Marriott's new ownership and management they have declined in their ability to deliver excellence, yet the price of a wedding there falls into the "upscale" category. The bride and groom, who live out of state, love Old Town Alexandria, and decided that this would be the ideal location for their wedding. Over the course of the year leading up to the wedding, we encountered multiple personnel changes, which constituted much concern. The bride's mother and I (mother of the groom) consistently communicated with them by email, phone, and in person regarding wedding specifics such as distribution of Guests’ Welcome Bags, Bridal Suite Reservation (said we did not have a reservation and upgraded another couple for free), and serving of the ...

  • We used The Alexandrian as one of our room blocks for our wedding. When we originally signed our contract, it was with Kimpton Hotels; however, by the time we were informed the name of the hotel as well as the management had changed, we had already printed our wedding invitations. We reached out to the sales manager to try and ameliorate the situation, and while we were provided with a very nice discount for the Eleanor Suite to use during our wedding weekend, the responsiveness of the team was very slow and often times, we were given incorrect information. Our booking link took over 3 weeks to create, and was done incorrectly 3 times. Upon arrival on the weekend of the wedding, things only got worse. First of all, not a single guest was given their welcome box upon arrival that my planner dropped off at the front desk. We either had to track it down with staff, or even worse, the front desk staff would leave a voicemail saying there was a box downstairs for them and to come get it... Read more
