THE ALEXANDRIAN COMMANDS A PREMIERE ADDRESS ON KING STREET IN THE VIRGINIA CITY FROM WHICH IT TAKES ITS NAME. THE HOTEL IS CENTRALLY SITUATED AMONGST BOUTIQUE SHOPS, RED-BRICK HOMES, AND LIVELY RESTAURANTS – A BUSTLING ATMOSPHERE THAT HAS REMAINED LARGELY UNCHANGED SINCE ITS CIVIL WAR-ERA ORIGINS, WHEN GEORGE WASHINGTON HIMSELF STAYED AT THIS ADDRESS.
Guests and locals alike gather in The Alexandian: A posh lobby encourages leisure or serves as a unique place to meet friends or business partners; a beautiful center courtyard is ideal for special events; and the restaurant Jackson 20, with its contemporary brick, leather, stone, and wood accents, is a trendy spot for Southern-style barbecue and bourbon – and on weekends is one of the city’s most popular brunch destinations. On warm summer evenings, movies are shown at the outdoor pool. Rooms and suites nod to the hotel’s colonial past with historic-chic design touches, like pastoral- or lantern-patterned wallpaper, chaise lounges in homely fabrics, and throw pillows depicting 19th-century portraits. With its contemporary boutique style and convivial social spaces, The Alexandrian is an address for the ages.
