Checked in on a Friday night with plans to visit Mt Vernon on Saturday. When I walked in, there was no one at the front desk. I waited, looked around, began to get slightly impatient. Finally another guest said "oh she is helping that party in the breakfast area". A few minutes later, an associate appeared. We were checked in with no problems. I inquired about some delivery menus, as it was getting late for our little one and there is really nothing nearby. I was given a nice bundle of options. We found our room with no problem. After staying in a king suite on a recent trip, the room seemed small by comparison, but it was a typical Hampton Inn room. Comfy, clean...but LOUD! Oh my goodness! I could hear every shower turn on in the rooms around and over us, people walking, doors closing, people talking....Not used to a Hampton being so noisy. Breakfast was okay - typical unappetizing eggs, but again, with so many other choices, no one is going to starve! If we were to stay here again, I think i would opt for the king suite, just for the quiet factor. Also the rate was excellent - $77 on a Friday night. If you need to go to Northern VA/DC but dont need to stay right downtown, this would be a good option for the price! Also the italian restaurant right next door is EXCELLENT!!!! Super fast delivery too!
