“Worst Hampton Inn Experience Ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Seven floors of rooms, but they didn't accommodate my HHonors reservation request for a room away from the elevator. I was able to convince the front desk representative to move me away from the ice and vending machines across the hall, but I wound up in a room on a lower floor with a sickening smell of vinegar coming out of the bathroom vent (and the room windows don't open). The room was clean, but the carpet was stained in several places. No mini refrigerator. Low quality toilet paper and tissues uncommon to Hilton properties. Standard Hampton Inn breakfast. Disinterested and unfriendly staff; no mention of Hampton's satisfaction guarantee at check-out (which I should have brought up). It's a convenient walk to the King Street Metro station and Old Town Alexandria sites, but I won't stay here again.

Room Tip: Higher numbered rooms are away from the elevator and vending machines; I would avoid rooms numbered...

This is a great hotel property in a great location! The property is well maintained and quite comfortable. The staff is quite friendly and willing to assist with any questions about the area or hotel. Steps away from shopping, dining and bars on King Street and a twenty minute walk to the Potomac Waterfront. I have stayed here several times and love the neighborhood; each time is more fun than the last.

We loved to stay here. Alexandria old town has a wonderful atmosphere and the Hampton Inn creates a feeling likee you visit the last century. Great service, great Surrounding, and great D & D Donuts a few steps away. If we ever travel to DC again, we definetely will return to the Hampton Inn.

Having stayed at the Hampton Inn, Alexandria for the last 2 weeks, I found the only down side is the sealed windows, thus no fresh air in the room; which made sleeping difficult. Breakfast only tho' disappointing. That said the hot breakfast changed daily and there were plenty of choices for fruit, cereals, waffles toast or bagels; choice of teas and coffees. Staff were very helpful and cheerful(ish). However one of the really great points, especially for visitors, (I was there on Business, but had the weekend free) is the location. Based just one block from the Metro station access to Washing central was soooo easy. Going down towards the river there is a wide variety of bars and restaurants. try the Flat Iron, O'Connell's or the Union Grill. It is a hike from Dulles, But Regan Intl is only a few stops up the Metro.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the street; sealed windows do cut down noise levels and you get a nice...

Right on King street, quick walk to/from Metro. Very convenient, & King street trolley stops right in front very half hour, running to the waterfront and back. Also a nice walk down King street. Lobby & Breakfast bar is very nice, plus grab & go breakfast bags as a courtesy for tourists "on the run" also. Have stayed several times for business, & always enjoy the bonus of a walk down King street in the eves. Rooms are quite satisfactory, clean and quiet, and staff is always pleasant. Warm cookies in the evening.

Trolley also stops at Metro, so you can catch to hotel but often I just walk if trolley is not there. Just about 2 blks.

Room Tip: Front rooms face King street. Can have a bit of noise, but I enjoy because you can view the street a...

Check in was a breeze, the room was impeccable, the location was better than perfect and it made the visit to Old Town Alexandria a delight for dining, shopping, walking through the classic architecture with a Dunkin Donut Shop just outside the front door. How can you beat that? Parking was amazingly easy to use but at $20 a day it ought to be easy. Overall a great hotel at an excellent price! Typical Hampton Breakfast served with style and freshness! This place is WELL RUN!

Room Tip: All room locations are excellent for quiet rest. Not much for view but you get more than you can ha...
