A Dramatic New Addition to Old Town Alexandria

Hotel AKA Alexandria brings a new level of style and sophistication to Old Town, a charming historic destination known for its boutique shopping, art galleries, and waterfront restaurants. Designed by world-renowned architect and designer Piero Lissoni, this tranquil urban retreat enhances your stay in Alexandria, Virginia — just 20 minutes outside Washington, D.C. and a short 10 minute drive from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

From the moment you step inside the newly reimagined property, you’ll discover an inspired balance of modern minimalism and refined mid-century elements. The focal point is the floating staircase — a Lissoni signature — which shows off dark steel and unique lines as it ascends to the terrace level. The rooms and suites are no less impressive, offering residential-style comfort through luxurious amenities and furnishings by the world’s leading artisans. Whether you’re in town for business, working remotely, or enjoying a weekend getaway, Hotel AKA Alexandria will leave you feeling inspired.

Hotel AKA Alexandria will welcome guests in early 2023.


The premium amenities and services at Hotel AKA Alexandria are designed to complement your lifestyle and make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Start your day with an invigorating workout in the Technogym fitness center, relax on the expansive landscaped terrace, host a meeting in our conference room or unwind in the evening by savoring some of Alexandria's best cocktails and light bites at our world-class bar. 


Piero Lissoni has created an architectural gem that effortlessly blends modern design with the charming brick-lined setting of Old Town, Alexandria. The sleek lines, dark tones, and rich materials of the common areas evoke Japanese minimalism, while the chic furnishings are sourced from the world's leading artisans, including Lema, Living Divani, and Porro. The centerpiece is a dramatic floating staircase — a signature feature of Lissoni's — that accentuates the transformative experience of moving throughout the property.
