Where to stay in Alexandria

Old Town boasts a number of high-end hotels that provide easy walking access to some of Alexandria's most popular restaurants, bars, and attractions. However, these are not typically budget-friendly; those looking to save a few dollars should consider a hotel or motel located on Jefferson Davis Highway. Though not technically within the city boundaries, these accommodations are considerably cheaper and often within walking distance of the metro. Alexandria is also home to a number of charming bed and breakfasts, several of which are located inside historical buildings.
