Overview

About the property

4-Story Town House On A Secluded Courtyard

Located a half block from Old Town's King Street, minutes from Reagan National and only 6 blocks from the King Street Metro, 110A South Columbus is a 4-story townhouse tastefully decorated to serve the needs of business travelers and tourists alike. Entire property has been renovated and updated in 2015.

There is metered street parking which is free from 9PM-9 AM. Parking garages are from 1-3 blocks away.

Located on a private off-street courtyard, its location -- convenient to both Washington DC ,Reagan National and Mt Vernon-- ensure travel-weary guests will spend time at work (and play) rather than stuck in traffic.

Ideal for holiday guest overflow as well.

Property's 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms ensure every guest has their own space. Two sitting rooms complete the package.

Main floor master queen bedroom has a fireplace and en suite bathroom - both romantic and practical - and small sitting room leading down a spiral stair to the kitchen/dining area which also has a fireplace. An additional traditional staircase also leads down to the kitchen/dining area/family room

Upstairs 2 additional queen bedrooms, including one four-poster bed, are adjoined by a second sitting area and full bath. The sitting room adjacent to the shared bath has a spiral stair leading to the top story loft bedroom with 2 twin beds

Although there is no washer and dryer, there is a Laundromat which is 0.3 to 0.7 miles away.

Wood floors through the main level are complimented by upstairs carpets and downstairs tiled kitchen and eating area.

The kitchenette is small - but ideal for business travelers, and the well stocked pantry provides an opportunity for the creative cook to shine.

Guests enjoy complimentary WiFi and limited basic cable on three TVS located through the property; complimentary morning coffee and condiments. We absolutely recommend a trip to Mischa's roasters a few short blocks away, with house roasted beans and pastries highlighting seasonal flavors.

There are two garages within two blocks of the property, and valet parking less than a block away at Morrison House Hotel. Parking garage at King and Fairfax has the most reasonable prices and just three blocks away.The free Old Town Trolly is steps away, which will take you to King Street Metro or is a short 6-block walk. Trolley will also take you down King Street to the Potomac River where you can take a water taxi to the Maryland National Harbor or MGM casino or stop at any restaurant or shopping along the way.

Lovely

  • 4 of 5

This property was lovely, clean and well-kept in a wonderful location right in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. Easy to get to the Metro on the King Street trolley or by a 15 minute walk past wonderful shops. Neighborhood is quiet at night despite being in the heart of businesses. I live in a four story house so I am used to stairs and had no problems. This one, with the kitchen on the floor below the entry level and some bedrooms on the 3rd and 4th floor, requires a lot of stair use. Be aware of this if you have difficulties with them. The only reason I withheld one star is because of parking...I wish I could give it 4.5. We were able to use street parking at night and a nice garage 3 blocks away but it did require planning and walking to move the vehicle. Not unusual for city living. Be aware of parking rules before you bring your car.

Location, space, welcoming owner

  • 5 of 5

This was very close to perfect. Close to Trolley, Metro, Whole Foods and Starbucks!

And great restaurants: Columbia Firehouse for adults. Don Taco for families.

A kitchen for breakfast and sitting room to discuss the days’ findings. It worked for us.

Book it! You will be happy you did.

Old Town Alexandria is located minutes from Downtown DC and Reagan National Airport yet retains old world charm and offers pedestrian sightseeing and shopping opportunities. Sailing, bicycling and walking/running options are particularly strong along the GW Parkway headed south from town.

Historic Mount Vernon is at the south end of that parkway - less than 15 minutes away.

Hundreds of nearby restaurants and dozens of spas and beauty salons ensure a well rounded stay.

Try a water taxi ride to the National Harbor Resort and its many outdoor attractions from the marina at the east end of King Street.
