“Great Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

My son stayed at this hotel a few weeks ago with his Boy Scout troop. He misplaced a wet-bag with some important items it. We learned of this after he returned home 2 weeks later. Contacted the hotel and the Executive Housekeeper responded promptly. She had located the bag and the hotel priority mailed it at their expense to us.
The attitude of the staff, especially the Executive Housekeeper, was exemplary. We are very pleased with how a mistake was handled and will continue to stay at Hampton Inns.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We got a room with 2 Queen beds and a pull out sofa. It was perfect for my family of 5. It was clean and comfortable with plenty of space. However, we arrived close to 5pm and our reserved room was not ready. The girl at the front desk was trying to tell me that I reserved a room with only one queen bed until I found my papers to prove otherwise. After waiting for at least a half hour we were told that our room was ready. (There was another family waiting in the lobby for their room also.) The breakfast was nice with plenty of space and a nice variety for a continental breakfast. We used the shuttle service to the airport and back to the hotel after our trip and that went smoothly although it did take about 1/2 hr for them to pick us up. Just something to keep in mind if you use this service. That didn't really bother us though. Overall it was a nice place to stay for one night. If our room had been ready and/or the front desk attendant had been friendlier it would have been much better!

Went to DC in March 2013, hotel is typical of the Hampton Brand. Nice, clean rooms, excellent breakfast. Wonderful customer service. However I want to note that the hotel is not in what most tourist consider Old Town Alexandria. You have to take the expressway to cross a body of water (not sure which) to get to Old Town Alexandria shops and restaurants. You are not able to get to the shops by walking, have to take shuttle or car. That said it is a bargain and very close to DC. Parking is free and for those who are driving that is a must. The hotel is surrounded by a golf course and water so it is an isolated area very quiet and peaceful. Stayed 3 days and enjoyed them all!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Stayed for 5 nights. Uneventful. Clean rooms although A/C dated and a little noisy. Typical Hampton Inn style breakfast. If you have a car it is so convenient to have free parking. We used the shuttle twice and we did not have to wait long. Metro can add up if you plan to travel in to to DC every day. Metro is priced depending on how far you travel and what time of day you travel. Peak hours will cost more. It adds up fast! There is no place to eat within walking distance of the hotel. Staff was friendly. Free coffee/hot chocolate in the lobby. Overall good stay.

Room Tip: Large property with lots of rooms.

This is a good place to stay if you want to see Washington D.C. without having to pay the earth for staying in the city. They will shuttle you for free to the metro and you have a 20 minute ride to the tourist area downtown. They will also shuttle you to old town Alexandria where there are many restaurants to eat locally. We did not have to wait longer than 10 minutes for the shuttle to pick us up. It is a typical Hampton Inn. The rooms are clean and they provide a decent breakfast.

We stayed at this hotel in 2010 and July 2013. Clean, convenient, staff was very attentive. Shuttle staff did a great job. A nice "base of operations" for a vacation to the sites in DC and Alexandria. Will book rooms again for a future visit. For the money and convenience, you won't go wrong with this Hamption Inn.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The hotel is located near Richmond Highway and there is no nearby restaurants or shops. You have to use a car to get around or the free hotel shuttle to go to the metro (goes with one shift to the Mall) or downtown Alexandria. The rooms are not very big and the beds are quite small for two persons. Old A/C with no temperature regulation.There is a nice pool area (only open in the afternoon) and a medium fitness room. A big advantage is that you can wash clothes in the small guest laundry. Free Wifi and parking. The breakfast is fair, but all utensils, cups and plates are disposable! It seems like a very big waste of ressources.
