“Good value for a visit to DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

The hotel was very clean from the Lobby area to the rooms. The breakfast was good there was plenty to chose from. They offered a free shuttle to the King Street Metro. We did not take this we were there on the weekend and found that the parking at the metro stations is free on the weekends so we drove to the metro station. If you are going on a weekend I recommend skipping the metro and driving in to DC. We found ample parking on the street in the National Mall area as well as up by the Capitol. If you do not want to park on the street we found a couple of lots that had $13 parking for the day. It cost us $26 round trip for the metro for 3 persons.. do the math., live and learn. There are a few fast food places close but nothing fancy. My only minor complaint is that the matresses were extremely hard but this did not amtter after a long day of site seeing in DC. All in all for 89 a night I was pleased.

Thank you for taking a moment to write a review on your stay with us. The comments on the public space is very much appreciated since we recently finished our lobby renovation. The information you shared on the parking in DC on the weekends will be helpful to future weekend guests. Please think of us when you return to the Washington, DC area.

While the location was a bit away from downtown Washington, that is easily overcome. The hotel provides shuttle service to the closest Metro station. If you want to drive, there is a hwy and fwy very close, however, some folks mentioned the noise from them, we never heard any noise from those road, however, our room was facing the golf course. If you aren't going into DC, Crystal City and and Pentagon City are close and there are lots of shops and restaurants there. Never did stop in Old Town Alexandria, but drove through it enough to see there was ample to do there too.

The staff was friendly, the front desk called after about half an hour to make sure the room was up to expectations, and there's a free shuttle service to the restaurant area of town.

Everything about this hotel met or exceeded my expectations.

This was my first time to the DC area and I picked this hotel online due to the shuttle services to and from the airport. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The shuttle services and drivers were great. We had to wait just a few minutes each time for the shuttle. The free breakfast was great every morning. I loved the free coffee and tea that they offered all day. The rooms were comfy and clean. We were stranded in DC due to super storm Sandy and they were very accomindating.

Who said that you get ripped off when you are in DC? Not here!
This is one of the nicest Hampton Inns (and I stay at a lot of them) I've stayed. Very clean. Very friendly and very safe.
The beds were comfortable and loved the duvet. Stayed in a smoking room (My husband smokes a pipe) and it didn't smell stale like a lot of other smoking rooms. No burn marks anywhere, which is really unusual for a smoking room-I was pleased. The room was immaculate and quiet, even though we were right off the highway
The breakfast was standard Hampton-but plentiful
The best part was the free shuttle to either the Metro station or Old Town. It was great! They were punctual. Never had to use our car to maneuver around DC. It stayed in the (free) parking area!
Will be back

we were there saturday night through sunday morning. despite being within 100 yards of the highway, we had no noise problems. access was very easy. while no full--service restaurant, there was an adequate breakfast (free) and they were very friendly to delivered meals. there were free shuttles although we did not use them. staff were quite friendly. and the price was right.

My wife and I stayed here for one night 10-20-12. We could not have been happier with our stay. The room and bathroom were exceptionally clean. The front desk people were very helpful, especially Glen. The shuttle was a great way to get back and forth from the Hotel to Old Town Alexandria. You may have to wait a few minutes, but the convenience factor out weighs any wait time. Will definately stay here next time I am in the area.
Also very close to Mt Vernon. We had a room in the back # 701 very quiet

Room Tip: See if you can get one in the back away from traffic noise
