“nice stay for a new hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

This hotel opened in June, and we stayed there a few weeks later. Areas for improvement: had an A/C issue that was partially resolved. Breakfast seating was crowded and shortage of a few items like OJ, sugar, cups, other items. Only one waffle iron that always had a line. Lobby seating is the same as the breakfast seating, so it is a little awkward trying to eat sitting on a couch crowded around a small table. Business room door was stuck and could not enter one evening.

The good: usually very good service, rooms were nice and comfortable, rates were reasonable for location and quality of hotel, great location near metro and White House. Overall, I would stay here again and hope some of the items above are resolved being a newly opened hotel.

Although not inexpensive, the location, taste, and condition of the hotel and the helpfulness of the staff made the stay worthwhile. The only slight negatives were that the front desk was often crowded, causing a long delay in service, and the floor in the room was not well swept.

This is a brand new Hampton, less than one month old. As other reviewers stated, I agree it must have been rushed to be completed. Pros: great location (next to Starbucks, across from a pizza/ice cream restaurant), walking distance, everything is new, better than average breakfast for Hampton, better than usual coffee for Hampton. Cons: you MUST valet park ($30), very small area to drop off bags/check in and on busy road, no microwave or fridge (i have been to very few hotels that do not at least have these available for small fee), tiny pool (closed during our stay for repair), only two hangers in closet, feather pillows (noghtmare for ppl with allergies you should use synthetic down instead), valet was slow and only one on duty in morning, no ice machines on several floors and 7th floor machine broken. Overall, it was not a terrible stay. However next time we will stay at Hilton Capital City. This location needs time to improve and finish things.

Stayed 2 nights. Booked here expecting usual good standards of Hampton Inn, in a location easy for walking tour of DC. It far exceeded our expectations. Brand new and therefore very clean property, nicely decorated and modern. Had an issue at check in, needed 2 beds for family of 4, and room had only one. Took a little time to resolve, as hotel was quite booked, but the management did find us another room. Excellent staff, always trying to help. Room was simple and nice. Pool, yes, was very small, but adequate and refreshing after long day walking. Breakfast was usual Hampton fare - cereal, toast, yoghurt, waffles, eggs and sausage. Parking, at $30 per day is pricey, but the total daily cost is still very reasonable for this quality accomodation in this location. Definately recommend, hard to find better value in the area.

Room Tip: Booked away from elevators, they were noisy.

Good customer service, decor was modern and rooms well sized. Hotel has a pool, virtually unheard of in DC for hotels, and complementary hot breakfast for guests. No in-room dining service but plenty of great restaurants and quick food joints near by. Will definitely be staying here again.

We are HiltonHonors members and stayed in this hotel 5 nights of our 2 1/2 week trip from Boston to DC. Most all hotels we stayed in were Hamptons. This one needs some work. The first issue we has was that their laundry is not finished (hotel is 2 weeks new when we stayed). We needed to wash clothes because of our long vacation.We asked if they could get permission for us to do it at another Hilton/Hampton close by. We had to walk with all our laundry to the metro plus another 2 or 3 blocks past the metro stop. When we arrived at the other hotel with our laundry we were treated very rudely at the front desk. They said it would breech the safety of their other guest. We did not back down and they finally relinquished. We had to wait in line to do our laundry and it took our whole evening. The other unsatisfactory thing is the size of the room-no chair or sofa to relax in-king room but way way too small. In the middle of the night around 2 am we would wake to a loud BANG- a garbage dumpster being dropped in the alleyway between the hotel and the building next door. Then the loud banging would occur about every two hours until 7 am.We were on the very top floor. The hotel valet out front sent us on a wild goose chase in the wrong direction, we were meeting friends and ended up walking two complete city blocks all the way around, out of our way. The front desk had no maps of the city to help us. Also the front desk clerk put us on hold for a long time while she looked up a number for us, kept getting back on the line forgetting what we had asked.The pool is about the size of a hot tub and they do not have a hot tub.The hotel does not offer in room movies other than what is on TV. On the flip side it was a very convenient location-right between two metro stops and within walking distance of the white house. there's a 711 just around the corner where you can get cheap sandwiches and snacks. The breakfast is wonderful. The art work in the hotel is amazing. The price is high for the value you receive.Of all the Hampton Inns and Hiltons we stayed at during this trip far exceeded our expectations except for this one.

Room Tip: room 1111 is extremely small. (King room) The elevator and the AC are very noisy all night as well a...
