“Decent hotel in a convenient location in DC”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2011

I enjoyed my hotel stay at the Hampton Inn. The room was adequate and had all the necessary things like a mini fridge, a microwave, a TV, a king-size bed, and nice-sized desk for my laptop. The Internet connection worked well, but I wouldn't say it was blazing fast. Everything seemed clean and everything was functional. The breakfast was a good deal, although the day I used the breakfast to go was disappointing. All in all, I'd recommend a stay, especially if you're doing stuff in the area.

My room was on the 6th floor and the window overlooked 6th St. This seemed to be a very loud arrangement. The hotel is about three blocks from a fire station, so I had a couple fire trucks or ambulances loudly go past my room each hour between about 5:00 and 10:00 p.m. It also seemed like I could hear more noise from the hall or other rooms than I have at some other hotels, but it was nothing that I could call a real problem.

I enjoyed the breakfast (included in the room price) the day I used it. They had all the usuals — cold cereal, juices, fruit, yogurt, bagels, and (the day I was there) cheese omelettes. It all tasted good. I also liked that they had doughnuts and a selection of caffeine-free teas. It's worth noting that the tea, coffee, and hot chocolate were available at any time, as were some apples by the front desk. On the other day I was there for breakfast, I was leaving very early, so I grabbed one of the hotel's bagged breakfasts. With only a muffin, granola bar, apple, and water bottle, it was rather disappointing. It just wasn't very much.

The location is pretty good. The hotel is right by, as advertised, the DC convention center. This is also only a couple blocks from the Verizon Center. Major sights like the White House, the Mall, the various Smithsonian museums, and the Capitol, are within walking distance (about a mile at the most). One final note about the location: if you're flying into BWI, you can get to this hotel for under $40.00 using the Super Shuttle service.

So, the hotel is frills-free, but was functional, and I would recommend it. As with all hotels in DC, it is over-priced.

This affordable downtown DC hotel is very convenient to China Town, the metro and the convention center. The hotel was very clean, safe and a great location for getting around DC. A complimentary hot breakfast is available.

We were participating in a sports event held at the convention center. The hotel is within two blocks of the convention center. Very convenient.

The staff at the hotel could not have been more welcoming or friendly. In particular the gentlemen at the front door and the breakfast staff. They greeted us each time we saw them and were always friendly; smiling and helpful.

We were there for 3 nights; breakfast was hot and good each morning and included in the rate; coffee and other hot beverages were available 24/7. There was always fresh apples available at the front desk. There was no extra charge for using the business center and it too was open 24/7. The fitness center was very nice and the pool and hot tub were clean and well attended to.

Parking is available at the open air lot 1/2 block North of the hotel on the same side of the street for $20 per night (it's $35 at the hotel). The parking lot attendant was very friendly and I felt my car was safe.

The rooms were nice; beds comfortable...great flat screen TV; microwave and small refrigerator....not five star ...but definitely more upscale then your typical Hampton Inn. I would stay here again without hesitation!

The room was clean and orderly. We ended up with a corner handicapped room so I can't speak to the layout of the regular rooms. We didn't like the layout of this particular room as the sofabed is placed directly between the main bed and the bathroom/hall at a point where the room narrows. Although the room's overall size is ample, the layout was very inconvenient for four non-handicapped visitors. And while the refrigerator is certainly useful, we'd prefer a microwave over the useless wet bar sink and counter. Why install a wet bar sink when a double bathroom vanity is just 6 feet away!?

The breakfast was pretty typical for a Hampton: standard hot foods (e.g. scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, some egg/ham cheesey english muffin thing one day, and even a make-your-own-waffle maker), some fresh fruit, cereals, muffins/bagels/toast, juices, and milk/coffee/tea. And unlike most of our Embassy Suites experiences, the morning breakfast crush was less crowded and seating was sufficient. This might however been because we were staying in this Hampton during a non-peak period.

The hotel offered nice little touches like coffee, tea and cookies in the lobby all-day.

The location was decent for Washington DC, especially if you are interested in things in Penn Quarter or Mount Vernon Square such as Verizon and Convention Center events or activities, and the National Portrait Gallery. It's also just a 8-10 blocks to the US Capitol or things around the northeast corner of the Mall (e.g. National Gallery of Art, Archives, Newseum, etc.)

We arrived very late on Xmas day after travelling for 23hours. I am very glad we chose to stay here. I booked the 1 bedroom suite for us and a double room for the kids. I rang a few days earlier to request again that the rooms be neighbouring and while I was told (again) that nothing could be guaranteed thet they would do their best. I was very pleasantly suprised to arrive and be shown that our rooms were actually interconnecting, which was a great bonus.
The rooms were great, good pillows and beds, lots of space. I am very noise sensitive and struggled a bit but you accept it when you are staying in the middle of a big city ( and you can buy earplugs). Breakfasts were good but very crowded and we fould it difficult to get a table on the 3 days we stayed.
The location is good - we got the bus to the Smithsonian Museums every day and either walked or got the bus or train to lots of good restaurants.

The GOOD: exellent varied breakfasts(I was pleasantly surprised) Fine room decor good prices for rooms Excellent staff friendliness and service, from front desk and taxi man to restaurant staff NICE FOLKS who are well trained fast elevators good location nice restaurant nearby(Busboys and Poets) These folks take care of you RECOMMENDATIONS the bed duvets keep you too toasty that is they don't breathe enough. Other than that, sure we would keep coming back .GOOD JOB MANAGEMENT! you want people to return, and they will! not a perfect hotel, but just about all you need

Great service, clean and comfortable rooms, decent gym/pool/spa (spa was too cold to me), and great location. Located within a couple of blocks of the Chinatown Metro station, tons of great restaurants, teh Spy museum, and an easy walk to all the sites on a nice day. The area felt safe at night, also. They also had wi-fi available for free throughout the entire hotel - so nice not having to plug in to access the internet in my room! Very thick, cozy bed. Flatscreen TV, in-room fridge & microwave, and of course a coffee maker.
