“excellent base for visiting DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2009

We stayed 5 nights in a spacious suite on the 7th floor of this friendly, well-appointed, CLEAN hotel which is located just outside the District of Columbia in Crystal City, Virginia. We booked our room directly on the hotel's web site, receiving three nights for $139 per night and two nights for $219 per night. Considering that our visit coincided with the heavily-attended Cherry Blossom festival, we felt that the rates were quite fair and competitive.

The property has a brand-new appearance. The best feature, though, is its close proximity to the Metro; we parked our car in the hotel's underground garage ($12 per day-- a reasonable price) and never took it out until the day we left. The Metro is an easy 2-block walk north up Eads Street from the hotel's rear entrance... then cross under the overpass to your right at 18th Street and there's the Crystal City Metro station on your left. We used the Metro or the bus to go everywhere we wanted. We could not imagine a visitor in an automobile trying to navigate the DC traffic and endlessly changing maze of circles and diagonal streets, not to mention the standstill rush-hours.

The complimentary breakfast is copious, served in a large comfortable room which reminded me of a university library reading room... high ceilings, nice upholstered chairs, solid tables. The hot breakfast items weren't my favorite (biscuits with sausage gravy, chorizo scrambled eggs), but there's a nice variety of fresh fruit, yogurts, bagels, muffins, breads, juices, and three grades of coffee, including a satisfying "robust.".

We never used the pool or the fitness room but noticed that many guests did. Just a two-block walk south on Eads Street takes you to 23rd Street, where there is a wide choice of ethnic dining places. We ate twice at Cafe Pizzaiolo, where the servers and the quality of the food were outstanding... but at a modest price. We never used the kitchen area of our suite, but it was spacious and modern, with a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker... certainly would be handy for a family making in-room snacks or for people who would like to save a few dollars by preparing microwave meals in the room, stocking in their own wine and beverages, etc.

We would consider no other place to stay when we return to Washington.

An inside tip: when taking the Metro to the National Museum of American History, it's more convenient to use the Federal Triangle station than the Smithsonian station. The latter is always clogged with tourists, and on one Sunday, when the cherry blossom festival was in full swing, there was a line of probably 200 people on the Mall just WAITING to take the escalator down into the Smithsonian metro station. At the Federal Triangle station, which to us seemed much closer, there were no crowds at all.

We stayed in a Suite at the Hampton Inn and loved it. Very comfortable beds, separate sitting area, refrigerator, microwave, irons, and all kinds of amenities. Although many people were staying at hotel (as witnessed at breakfast in mornings), it was quiet in the rooms. This hotel is a great choice.

Note: This was our first trip to D.C. and I'm glad we read reviews at tripadvisor and decided to stay in Crystal City. As you will read in other reviews, it is very easy to get to Metro station (about 2 streets over) and you can catch the rail in either direction about every 15 minutes. I am so glad we decided not to drive a car while in D.C. We bought a SmarTrip card at the Commuter Store in the Crystal Underground which made using metro even easier and would definitely do again.

This is a very fresh, updated Hampton Inn. We have stayed here several times over the years and have always been very impressed. The rooms are clean, well-appointed, and quiet, though not large. The bed is comfortable, and the bathroom is spacious and nice.

The breakfast, as at all Hampton Inns, is good considering it is free. There is a large TV and plenty of seating; it can get more crowded when a convention is in town.

The staff has always been very friendly and professional during our stays. There is a free shuttle to Reagan National Airport although it does not always run on a schedule.

The metro is a long 5 minute walk - I have walked between the hotel and the Metro stop a dozen times at all hours of day and night and always have felt safe, even with my family. The ride into the convention Center is about 20 minutes.

The value for the money is excellent. We never stay in DC any more because the prices are just too high; we stay in Arlington and take the metro to whatever convention or other event we are going for.

Thnx for all the reviews...this helped me choose hotels....
Family of 4 on spring break, former reviews of this hotel seconded: great location, it is only 2 blocks not 6 to the metro via Eads St in back of hotel, great choice of restaurants on 23rd, etc. Hotel: at approx. $210/ night including taxes and parking ($12/day) our room (421), south: the window faced the adjacent wall to the radisson, east: jefferson davis hwy. (The hotel is connected to the radisson). room is next to the elevator banks which i thought would be very noisy but this is not the case (I am ultra sensitive to noise) but what got me is the room is 2 floors up from the hotel's ventilating system...turned on the tAC for white noise to compete with the ventililating fans, helped a little...there was no tourist lit/info at the front desk which we found odd (maybe they cater mostly to businessmen but we saw plenty of tourists), we asked directions to the udvar-hazy center (air & space museum's outpost at dulles airport) and the receptionist couldn't handle the question and kept directing us to the mall we kept on saying that we want to go to the one at dulles airpt., they told us to step aside because there are people waiting...the breakfast is OK: that is if you go before 8AM or after 9AM, there were busloads of high schoolers (i heard someone at the front desk say they are under contract to schools), so make note if you want a table, otherwise you'll eat breakfast in your room, consisted of yogurts, fruits, breads, protein of the day: sausage more like kielbasa, or eggs, or meat/ gravy poured over biscuits, juices, coffee, waffles, cold cereal, the ladies who replenish these work hard so give them a smile even if you're pissed off because some teenager cut you off while going for the banana, got tired of the provisions by the 4th morning...the pool, the reason why we chose the hotel: not worth it, it is small, 12 people in it and you're just standing in water, can't do a cannonball or you'll splash someone sitting on the sides, not that the lifeguard will allow it...All in all we had a nice stay but we'll stay somewhere else next time unless they give us a very good deal...I spoke to a lady i shared table with and she told me that she got her room at $79/ night because she called the hotel directly...We'll be returning to DC again but not during spring break to avoid highschool trippers, cherry blossom fans, and folks like us......

My wife and I booked our stay using our HHonors points. Overall, I'm satisfied with my stay here.

We arrived at 2:30pm. Check-in was a breeze and we were given a corner room on the top floor. There were no disturbances or major issues.

I like to sleep on firm mattresses so I thought the bed was on the soft side. For some reason, the curtains in our room did not close all the way. Yes, I checked the track and there was no room for movement. Only the sheer curtains could be closed all the way.

We did not use any housekeeping services so I cannot comment on that aside from our room looking clean when we walked in. There were plenty of towels for the both of us during our 2 night stay.

The continental breakfasts have a good variety to choose from. They offer eggs, ham, biscuits, muffins, fruit, pastries, toast, bagels, coffee, tea, and varieties of cereal. Seating is luck of the draw since it's packed in the mornings.

In response to another review about the distance to the Metro: It really isn't far. From a NYC perspective it's one Manhattan avenue plus a Queens Blvd crossing. Maybe in perspective when you've done so much walking around in DC you're tired and think the 3 block walk is 6 blocks...

Tip: There are a few of restaurants close-by on 23rd and South Eads Streets. We ate at Kabob Palace and Top Thai Restaurant. Kabob palace is open 24/7 so it's perfect for a late night bite.

This is a nice hotel with great service and very reasonable. The biggest drawback is the Long Long walk to the Metro center. I always prefer Hampton Inns but the walk to the Metro is so far, a good 6 blocks. Everything else was fine, very nice area also.

We did choose this hotel for its location in close proximity to Reagan Airport from which we were departing in the early morning. Check in was quick and without any problems. We did get a spacious room with a king sized bed. Room was reasonably clean, so was the bathroom, though it was showing signs of wear - some renovation there would be welcome.

One problem with the room was that the only source of heat there was the aircon unit by the window. Old and worn down it was very noisy, we had to switch it off to be able to sleep. By the middle of the night it was already uncomfortably cold in the room. In fact for this reason alone I think I won't stay there again - I like to keep my room warm and I hate noise, in fact I can't sleep if there is anything humming in the room. So I prefer hotels that are able to keep their rooms warm but silent.

Generally no other problems there but also no thrills. Can't say anything about the breakfast - we checked out too early to get one, but complimentary coffee, cookies and apples were available near the reception. No wireless Internet in rooms, but wired was available - however, for a surcharge. Staff we had pleasure to deal with was polite and efficient.

A mistake we made was to order dinner from the room service. We did order pasta and a chicken dish + apple crumble for desert. Dishes arrived on plates wrapped in plastic foil - it turns out from another hotel, I think it was Radisson, that was in the next building. The food was really bad - tasted like canned food re-heated in microwave. We didn't get sick or anything, just got to sleep very very disappointed. After 10 hours flight from Europe we wanted some real food before moving on - we would have been better off with Dominos Pizza. In fact, some of the stuff served on KLM was tasting better than this.

Booked through Expedia, so I did get a good rate of $89 - right now they quote over $230 per night, which is a highway robbery for this place. So overall - if you're on a budget and happen to find a good deal, stay there. Don't oder room service food, though.
