216 A City B&B


Welcome to 216 a City Bed and Breakfast.

216 is unlike any other B&B.  It especially caters to the business executive who is tired of staying in hotel rooms and couples who want a distinctive place to get away.  Enjoy relaxed elegance in 216’s unique whole house rental with innkeeper services and total privacy for you and up to three additional people traveling with you.  216 is a newly renovated, 126 year town house, located in historic Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. My objective is to give you the feeling of the happiest travel experience you have ever had. See information and rates below.

Information & Rates:  216 can be your fully furnished two story home for up to 4 people traveling together.  It has three bedrooms (2 queen bed rooms and one with twin brass beds), two full and one half bathrooms, living room, dining room, reading room, terrace, and garden. It is set up each day so that you can enjoy a self-serve continental breakfast, snacks, and other treats on your schedule.

216 is a city bed and breakfast where everything is close at hand. Our specialty is helping you feel at home during a stay that is as restful or active as you desire.  King Street shops and restaurants are a block away.  Alexandria’s free King Street trolley stops at our corner and will take you to the Metro or to the waterfront to connect to the water taxi to National Harbor or boats to Georgetown or Mount Vernon. You can dine at over 139 restaurants within walking distance, visit historic sites, or shop in galleries and specialty shops. Jog or bike along the Potomac riverfront, or take the King Street Metro to explore Washington DC.  If you need some quiet time, sit in your own private garden, or read a book by the fire.  If you are here on business, 216 is a perfect setting to hold private business discussions in the dining room or connect with our free wireless internet. Bring your spouse along to enjoy Old Town together.

216 is a great value.  Everything is included in the room rate.  Our nightly rates are constant throughout the year and are as follows:

$250 for one or two people sharing the same bedroom.

$75 for each additional person.

The only tax charged is 6% Virginia sales tax (no other fees). There is free parking for one car.  We ask that you send one nights deposit to reserve in advance.  We require payment by check or cash.  Unfortunately, due to recent regulatory changes, we do not accept credit cards.  Should you need to cancel please let us know as soon as possible.  Your deposit is fully refundable if you cancel within 72 hours of your stay.  216 is not set up for children under 10, wedding parties, or events of any kind. We want to keep the house pristine for our overnight guests. There is no cooking in the kitchen as a courtesy for the next guest. There is no smoking, and we can not take pets. We ask for a two night minimum reservation for holiday weekends.  Check-out time is 11:00. 

I hope that you will check availability by going to the Availability Calendar page and click on the month of interest.  If we have availability, call us between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. EDT for a reservation.  If we happen to be booked for your dates, please check back as your date approaches.  We do get cancellations from time to time. We look forward to your stay.

We will be closing the B&B at the end of December 2017 after 25 years in business.  We will miss so many of our guests that have become friends over the years.  If you have a gift certificate please contact us for a reservation or a refund.  We will miss you.
