“Odd Parking but Good Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Typical Hampton Inn. Good breakfast and small but comfortable and very clean rooms. I was reminded of small-town European two-star hotels I have stayed in. The below-ground parking is odd (you have to go around the block), but once you figure it all out, it's actually very convenient. There is direct access to the (free) King Street trolley, which runs until 10 PM. Only discordant note: had a difficult time getting towels after the clean-up crew left us short. That said, the staff is very pleasant and accommodating.

Had a great time at this hotel. it is on King Street and within walking distant to the Metro and Amtrak station. There is a Capital Bikes kiosk close by and many restaurants. There is also a free trolley that runs up and down King street.

Thought for the price the place was a little dreary inside. It needs some updating. Located in Alexandria but quite a few blocks from the main downtown area. Great access to the metro. The service was friendly and it was clean. The breakfast was good.

This is a wonderful place to stay. Convenient to everything. The free trolley service is just outside the door . The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing I was not happy about was the charge to park in the hotels parking garage. If you are paying for a room and the hotel has a garage it should be available for use at no additional charge . We did discover (too late) that you can get a free street parking voucher from the visitors center. Next time I may save my $15 (per day) Hampton Inn parking fee and try my luck at street parking.

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.
