“Hampton Inn Alexandria”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The hotel is extremely convenient to the interstates and close to Reagan airport. The rooms were comfortable but the pillows were softer than what I like (minor detail). A few casual restaurants close by, but only one buffet type place within walking distance. Staff were very friendly and helpful with directions.

The hotel staff was amazing, they let me check in early, and check out late .They were very kind and helpful at all times. Breakfast and good quality internet connection are complementary.
The location is not near any town center, however on-demand shuttle rides to old town Alexandria, and to the metro station completely cancel this drawback. There's also an airport shuttle.

The real drawback was very bad smell in the hallway. I was in the 7th floor, and although I was in a smoke-free room, and the room smelled fine, every time I entered or left the room I had to go through a hallway that stinked of cigarettes.
This is a shame, as it left a bit of bad taste from an otherwise excellent stay.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room in a floor that has no smoking rooms at all, maybe the hallway will not sm...

This is a typical Hampton Inn. Good clean rooms, free breakfast with a large seating area, and very easy to get to as its right off the highway. Nothing fancy here though. I travel to Andrews AFB often and like staying in Old Towne Alexandria. While this is not in downtown Old Town, its probably the quickest and easiest hotel to Andrews, and the only one that was available at the per diem rate for my stay. (besides cheap motels) They do have a shuttle van to take you all around the area. Rooms were typical and had thin walls and noisey bathrooms next door- but almost all hotels are the same. My favorite part is its right on a running/biking trail. I was able to walk 20 ft from the front door get on the paved trail and ran to Jones Pointe Park where I could run on the river bottoms. These paved trails line some of the roads and you could probably run numerous different places. Not a lot to do within walking distance, but a lot to do within a 5 minute drive or shuttle.

We stayed here while heading out on vacation and could not have had a better stay, so we stayed on the way back. Our second visit was a bummer (room 2225 in case you get it): our first room had not been cleaned from previous guest, our second room still had dirty sheets on the sofa bed, the bathroom door did not fully close, the sink drain didn't properly function, and there were ants on the floor. Our first stay was excellent, our second was pretty poor...overall blend: average.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend for two nights to see the cherry blossoms and other sights around Washington D.C. We drove here and parked the car and didn't have to use it again until we left for home. Check-in was easy and the staff was very welcoming and helpful. They gave us maps of the area and the Metro, and told us about their 24/7 shuttle service to the Huntington metro stop, Old Town Alexandria, and the airport. We had a king size room on the 7th floor with a golf course view. The room was a good size and had a small fridge and microwave, comfortable bed, closet space to hang clothes and keep your suitcase, and a nice size bathroom with plenty of counter space and towels. The hotel also offers a free breakfast which has many hot and cold choices, and a very large area with seating for many guests. We used the shuttle to Old Town and the Metro and never had to wait more than five minutes to be picked up or dropped off. The shuttle drivers were very friendly and helpful if you needed local information. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to the Washington D.C. area because of all the amenities it offers, and the helpful, friendly staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a golf course view

Just got back from a three night stay here. We booked this hotel the night before departing for DC during this busy April Vacation period, and we were surprised to get a very very cheap rate. The shining aspect to this hotel was clearly its value: you get free parking, internet, breakfast, parking, and shuttle all for one cheap rate. These are all things that the more expensive hotels in DC lack. The hotel was also immaculate. The housekeepers cleaned every portion of our room from top to bottom, refilling everything from tissues to the sheath in the ice bucket. My only complaint about anything at all is that while the halls, lobby, and bathrooms seem relatively new, the carpeting in the room seemed a little worn and dated; but overall not a really big issue. The breakfast was all that was needed and never too crowded (even during this busy week). The staff at this hotel absolutely bends over backwards for their guests as well. They provide two shuttles, one to Old Town Alexandria (about a 5 minute ride) and one to the Huntington Metro Station (about a 3-5 minute ride pending traffic lights), and they take you and come pick you up whenever you are ready versus sticking to a strict schedule. People may think that the location is a bit too far from the city, but it is not. With the shuttle, this hotel turns into a quiet retreat near the city. Overall, not only would I come back to this hotel but this hotel showed me that staying in Alexandria is the best way to see DC.

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.
