We stayed at this hotel based upon Trip Advisor reviews and proximity to the train system. It was an adequate hotel but I would not call anything about it unique. The room was rather small and the beds were VERY hard unlike most Hamptom Inns we have checked into. The comforter had also seen better days as it was lumpy. The hotel was clean and the hotel staff friendly. We did like the location as we could walk down King Street looking for restaurants etc. and found many to chose from. We also liked the location of the metro station. It was a 5 minute walk from our door. We thought the extra charges on the bill were rather high though. We paid 15 dollars per day for parking and the taxes were almost an additional 20% added onto our bill. We realize that we were paying for the location. It was a quiet area and really gave you a flavor of local life.
Stay away from a restaurant, Bittersweet. We tried breakfast and couldn't even eat the food. It was stale, mushy and served cafeteria style. Hampton Inn served an ok breakfast that included fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels and an "egg dish". I would recommend this hotel if you want to stay in Alexandria because of its location but if money is an issue I would look for something cheaper and drive to the metro parking lot to catch the train into DC. The train ride was about 25 minutes from that location and the parking lot seemed adequate.
