“happy 7 day stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

best location to see all the DC and Northern VA..easy access to route 495, 395, George Washington Parkway and hwy 1 south, and Potomac river. Good service and nice rooms. Get the new wing with 1000 to 7000 numbers, the old wing can be well worn.

Room Tip: rooms on the Potomac side are best and higher the better.

I stay here anytime I come to DC for pleasure. The rooms are very clean and organized and the location is excellent for both DC, Old Town and Fairfax County. Breakfast is a good value. Fresh cut fruit is some of the best I've tasted. Highly recommend it. Manager was very accommodating in addressing a price concern I had and made me feel valued. A minor item: the bathroom toilet is tucked next to the wall....that's not desirable - and especially when the bathrooms are quite large. The desk staff was very nice and very helpful - but not too experienced and not too familiar with the area. Language can also be a challenge, as most were foreign. Overall, this is a great value and I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I had to be in this part of DC.

Room Tip: When you get off the freeway going south on Rte 1, be sure to get over in the left lane early or you...

The staff was great. We stayed there march 27, 28, 29 30, we left april 1. they had a group of church people there. (alot) they where making 5-6 waffles per person. so other couldn't make any. We booked through priceline(will not do this again) really not happy about the mornings. we wanted to get up and go, but it was not possible. I wish i was told ahead of time that it was booked like this. I am not races, could be anyone. there was like 25 in a group at a time. they got to eat in the banquet rooms, but had to use what the other guest use to get there stuff. not please at all about this. rooms great!!! the staff was great. plus there was so many people there. not enough hot water!!!!!!!!!! we got up at 6:30! the toilet made an odd noise when flushed.

Room Tip: love the clean rooms. and someone making the bed. at pet peeve of mine.

We stayed at this hotel March 26,27, & 28. This was our 2nd stay at the hotel. The hotel is very clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the price includes a great buffet style breakfast. There's also free shuttle service to the Metro and Old Town. The rooms are spacious and have a large flat screen tv. There is always fresh regular and decaf coffee in the lobby along with hot water for tea. I will stay here whenever I am in the area and highly recommend this hotel.

Great location for touring the DC area in your own vehicle. Clean hotel with friendly staff, expansive rooms, and an excellent breakfast. There was plentiful free parking. Highway noise was not a problem for us, and we were on the side facing the highway. We would return.

This hotel has a very dedicated staff who went above and beyond to find a very special, priceless item we had left the week before. Hilda made it her personal mission to search the entire hotel until she found it for us. She searched our previous room while I waited! She dug through piles of linens in the laundry room. Once she found it she immediately called us and returned it instantly. We are incredibly impressed, not many people are this dedicated to helping others these days. Thank you, Hilda and the entire staff at Hampton Inn & Suites Alexandria Old Town.

This hotel was clean, with a good, hot breakfast and nice, large hotel rooms. Each room has a mini-fridge, and microwave - which is great for travelling with kids since you can always keep snacks on hand, and keep water bottles cold for the long day ahead. But the best part, by far, was the free shuttle service to the local Metro. We would simply alert the front desk that we were ready to go and within minutes, a friendly driver brought us to the Huntington Metro stop and very shortly, we were in the heart of DC. We always grabbed a to-go breakfast bag of apple, water, granola bar, and muffin on our way out too! On the way back, when we were one stop away, we would call the hotel and by the time we walked outside, the shuttle was outside waiting for us. Download the iTrans DC app for a Metro map and it will tell you exactly what stop to get off for whatever you wish to see. The hotel isn't in a scenic location (its right on a major road), but for convenience into DC, its worth more than a view.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the golf course, so you aren't dealing with the noise of a major roadway.
