ALEXANDRIA, VA. - The Hilton Alexandria Old Town is under new managerment.
Terms were not disclosed, but Memphis-based Davidson Hotels & Resorts has announced that it has been named manager of the 246-room hotel, located at 1767 King Street, which also includes 13 executive suites, one presidential suite with sweeping views of Old Town and two deluxe executive suites.
Hotel amenities include 7,600 square feet of meeting and banquet space, the contemporary upscale dining of Seagar's Restaurant & Lounge, a full-service Starbucks, heated indoor pool, fitness center and 24-hour business center.
"The D.C. metro area is one of the most vibrant hotel markets in the country," said Steve Margol, Davidson's chief investment officer.

Our growing portfolio in this important market provides our owners with exceptional economies of scale."
The hotel is minutes from downtown D.C., two Metro stops from Reagan National Airport.
"Alexandria is home to more than 1,000 national associations, including the American Diabetes Association and the Society for Training and Development, as well as the United States District Court, the Patent and Trademark Office headquarters and myriad consultants and contractors to the Federal Government," Margol said. "This is a great market for us."
