When visiting DC, don't overlook this Hampton Inn. I stayed here a couple of nights while attending training in Old Town Alexandria and found the place to be very clean, comfortable, and convenient. They have a regular shuttle service that starts at 7a and runs every half hour to the metro station in the morning. In the afternoon, the shuttle starts at 3:30 and runs until 9p. There is a complimentary breakfast in the morning which I found adequate, and coffee that you could get pretty much all day. So, why pay Old Town Alexandria hotel rates and have to pay for parking, when you could just be a little ways down King Street and save some money? Also, the staff were super friendly and helpful, and this place was clean!
