“Good location and good rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I am usually quite happy with Hampton inn suites and this was no different. The location is good for the Washington area and quick access to motorways etc. About 5 minutes by shuttle to Old Town Alexandria which I can highly recommend.

Rooms are big with a small kitchenette type facilities if you need them and a good office space with reliable Internet. Breakfast has some cold and hot choices and for me it was fine for 4 days.

I would happily stay here again.

Other than the remodeling that was being finished this hotel was a great experience. My wife and I travel quite a bit and the staff at this Hampton ranks in the top 3 of any hotel we have stayed at. The front desk staff was awesome and treated us with the utmost respect. We are actually treated like "customers" - something that seems lost in today's world. To compare this - after being at this hotel for three days of vacation we moved to the Washington Court hotel for a conference. We would have GLADLY gone back to the Hampton, the difference in customer service was light years apart even though the WC was priced at twice as much.

This Hampton Inn is a great choice for people like me who are visiting Washington DC but don't want to spend a ton of money on a hotel. This hotel was very clean, the staff was excellent, the room was clean and well-maintained, and the breakfast was excellent. The only negative was that the A/C unit was very loud.

The hotel is very convenient to freeways and National Airport. Staff were polite and rooms were comfortable and relaxing. The morning breakfast was varied and quite good for a hotel continental service. Restaurants within a short driving distance.

When visiting D.C. this is our 'to stay' hotel. The staff are friendly, the rooms are comfortable and clean but there is something amiss with the breakfast. The breakfast area seems sloppy and not kept up with food. Is it the kitchen staff or management not making the effort? Both mornings of our recent stay, we were there for breakfast and bins for eggs and fruit were empty and no kitchen staff seemed to be available to mention this to. Its as if things are filled and then once they are empty well, you are out of luck. So just be one of the first ones up for breakfast! Please management...... review this situation because otherwise we think you are the best!!!!

This hotel is nice. It is clean and the staff are friendly but I don't think the website mentions that they pick up and drop people off not only from the Airport but they will pick up and drop off at the subway which makes sightseeing very easy for those who do not drive. This is a free service. I did not stay at the hotel but was there for a convention.

The reception and eating areas are very well designed and comfortable. The numerous bugs in the bathroom were inexcusable for a hotel of this name. Also one of the staff was very unprofessional and I wouldn't recommend anyone work with her.
