“If you're going to DC, this is the place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

My family stayed at this hotel for our vacation to Washington, DC and highly recommend it. The location is fantastic; you can see the Metro station from the front door and it is a short, pleasant walk. The free Old Town Trolley stops in front of the hotel every 15 minutes and whisks you to downtown and the waterfront. The hotel itself is very clean and the rooms are well-appointed. While the rooms run on the smaller side, they are still a decent size and if you are like us and gone most of the day, you aren't in it but to sleep and shower. The free breakfast is above-average and if you want something different than what the hotel offers, there is a Dunkin Donuts two doors down! The parking garage is very convenient and far less expensive than those hotels closer in and in downtown DC. We saved almost $30 per day in parking alone compared to the hotels we looked at closer in - well worth it! I can't say enough good things about the staff at this hotel; they were all very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Old Town Alexandria is very clean and safe and we would definitely stay in this town and this Hampton Inn again.

Room Tip: We requested a room away from the elevator and the hotel delivered; however, the hotel was very quie...

We ventured to Virginia for a friend's wedding June 25, 2014. Can't tell you how much we appreciated the friendly & helpful staff at this hotel. An excellent daily continental b'fast, served from 6-10am , clean pool & exercise room. A free trolley runs every 15 minutes along historic King St. This hotel is by far the most economical too in the area...

I wish I could give it a 3.5. Location is amazing. Block from King St metro and walking distance to the best of Old Town. That said, rooms are pretty standard. TV is old and there are only about dozen stations (no local stations at all) and every time it turns on, it is at ridiculously high volume. The continental breakfast is decent but they only had one woman working and she was struggling to keep up. And the lobby is very, very small and you have to lie in wait for a place to sit. Gave up one morning and brought food back to the room. With all the amazing restaurants and activities on the hotel doorstep, guess they didn't expect anyone to actually spend any time inside the hotel.

The staff is very helpful and friendly, the inn is located in a nice area for walking to old town and the parking was easy. I Find most hotels much the same other than the staff and every Hampton Inn I have stayed at has had great staff that were helpful and pleasant. Great experience

The hotel is very comfortable, the desk clerks are sweethearts, I forget their names but are from Ethiopia. The hotel is literally 5 minutes from the Metro (Train). Not really much to do around the area.

Wasn't like we were going to watch much TV anyways... great location near the Metro so we could go see all the places in DC. Also got 50% off since the TV didn't work, which was awesome. Nice beds too, very comfortable.

King street in Alexandria is the place to stay. Very cute area. Free trolley. Hampton Inn is the perfect location because it is close to the metro station. Easy to get to DC, Mt. Vernon and Reagan Airport. Fair price. Nice pool.
