I chose this hotel because I was able to get the best price through AAA. This location is convenient to attractions located in the Washington D.C. and Virgina area. I used a GPS to get to the hotel and it didn't exactly coincide with the actual traffic pattern and street name but once you see it you will probably ignore... More

Typical Hampton Inn. The staff was courteous. Rooms were modernized and always love the duvets versus bedspreads. Breakfast room was always crowded. The staff always kept all the food/beverages stocked. The only negative comment I have is that there is no one wiping down tables in between guests having breakfast. Therefore, I would take a napkin and wet with hot... More

This hotel went far above our expectations! The staff was friendly, the hotel was very clean and modern and the complimentary breakfast buffet had anything you could possibly want! The hotel shuttle service was prompt and the front desk staff was helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Stayed March 1st for two nights....weekend rate received, I believe. Great location for visiting the overall area with the help of the front desk, shuttle, and the Metro to avoid parking issues and getting around. Everything was just splendid, the room, internet, breakfast, bathroom facilities, and especially the people!....both the front desk personnel and Mr. Robertson, the shuttle driver. I'd... More

Disgusting hotel. Non-smoking floor hallway smells like cigarettes. Non-smoking room sheets smell like a smoker just left. Hotel is not kept up well at all. Would never stay here again. Very bad experience overall. Only nice thing was easy shuttle ride over to Metro station.

The hotel is clean and the breakfast buffet it's really nice. The staff is awesome, a special Thank You to Salima. I booked through an agency so I didn't know they provide transportation from the airport and the metro, so we walked from the metro in the rain/snow to get there. She made sure we got some hot soup and... More

I have stayed at many Hampton Inns but this one was the best. It has a very nice lobby, very large room with desk and large flat screen, but the best part was that they offered a free shuttle to Old Town Alexandria an area filled with shops and great restaurants. The hotel is off the highway, so it was... More

Because we have family in Alexandria we are often in the market for a hotel for a week long stay. We have found this hotel to be well maintained with a good staff for a reasonable price. Not all Hampton Inns are created equal and this one is a pleasant place to stay. Having a car does make staying here... More

This is an accommodating hotel with fine service and good facilities. Access to the hotel is difficult. When making reservations, ask for specific instructions about entering the parking lot from the highway. It's not at all obvious! In fact, you'll need to pass through the parking lot of another building, and there is only one way in and out. Overall,... More
