“Convenient location in Old Town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

The hotel is on King Street near the Metro Station. It is a nice stroll down King Street past many shops and restaurants to the heart of Old Town. The hotel is clean and the staff is courteous and very helpful. The room is well appointed. I found the bed to be a bit too firm for me.

Hampton Inn hotels are fine, they're clean, well run and have all the agreeable little touches you'd expect from a major hotel chain - soap plus shower gel, mouthwash, plenty of towels, etc. The rooms are well appointed, free internet, comfortable beds etc. What's not to like? The breakfast, that's what. I will never stay at a Hampton Inn again until they improve their below-standard breakfast. Everything is served in annoying little plastic containers with plastic knives and forks. Instead of crispy bacon and fluffy scrambled eggs you get their microwaved omelette-style extrusion with greasy sausage-style hockey pucks. Er, no thanks. All I could stomach was a banana and yoghurt. The coffee isn't bad, I have to admit but otherwise the Hampton Inn breakfast sucks big time. Btw, this is not based on just this hotel, I stayed at another HI in Virginia Beach a few months ago and it is the same - very disappointing breakfast.

Clean, efficiently run hotel right on King Street. Staff was extremely helpful, and the free breakfast was pretty substantial. Would have liked a safe in the room, but other than that, nothing needs improvement.

As previously mentioned in other reviews, this is the best place to stay if visiting DC and driving. Parking lot abit small, but free. Shuttle to metro was great. Staff friendly. Breakfast was good and different each morning. Rooms quiet with good beds. Pool was closed which I thought was a little, but otherwise a nice stay.

Great location, Metro right there for DC, Old Towne restaurants all within walking distance and that included a free Trolley service if needed! Would definitely stay again! Also used the pool after an extremely hot and humid day sightseeing in the National Mall!

This Hampton Inn has great convenience - about 1 1/2 blocks from the DC Metro. Breakfast is typical of Hampton Inn. The A/C in the hallways apparently did not work, but the hotel rooms had nice frigid air. The rooms were quiet, and internet worked nicely. The Alexandria Trolley picks up directly in front of the hotel and great shopping/eating is within walking distance. Devon, one of the clerks, is a spectacular help.

Close to the Metro. Good staff. SLOW elevators. Great for a business trip. Attempted to check in early (about 11:30 am) and no go. Told to return at 12:30 pm -- still no go. Finally got in room about 1:30 pm. A bit frustrating but to be fair I was early. Area is great. Seems safe at all hours although most restaurants are about 3 blocks away toward the river on King Street.

Room Tip: Easy walk to King Street Metro.
