“Clean, New, Convenient Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

My wife and I stayed one night at this hotel, a Sunday night, recently after returning from a trip to the Caribbean. The flight into Reagan National arrived at 12:30AM. Rather than stay in town near the airport before driving several hours home the next day, we elected to find a hotel which was relatively close (so not too far to drive at 1AM in the morning) to downtown Washington DC, but outside the beltway and outside the heavy traffic zone, so we could continue our drive back home into Pennsylvania in the morning.

This hotel fit the bill perfectly. It was only about a 40 minute drive from Reagan National (assuming a time of day with no heavy traffic). The hotel is quite new. Consequently, it is very nice and clean. The price is very competitive for the greater DC area. It was close to I-270, but far enough off of it that we did not hear freeway traffic.

I have stayed in many Hampton Inns all over the country. They are generally quite predictable (in a good way) in my experience. The only times I have been disappointed is when the building itself is older. The carpets get dirty. The air smells musty. Unless hotel owner/operators are willing to spend capital to refurbish and replace carpet, etc., the wear and tear drags down the Hampton reputation. But, happy to report, this Hampton is really nice relative to other Hampton Inn locations where I have stayed. It benefits from being so fresh and new.

For someone looking for a place to stay in the greater DC area that was more modestly priced, but still close enough to have good access to downtown, this is a good choice.

One last pointer: leaving DC, and driving here on I-270, one needs to commit perhaps 5 to 10 miles before the actual exit to the right-hand, local access lanes of I-270. Fortunately for me, I was using a Garmin which somehow knew this and kept me in the two right-hand lanes for many miles (not sure how many) before the actual exit. If I had stayed to the left, in the main thru lanes of I-270, I would have come to the exit point and discovered I could not get off. You are committed in the thru lanes by concrete barriers that take you past the exit. I am not sure how far you would have to go north before it would let you off to backtrack south again (or technically southeast again). Anyway, bottom line, stay to the right on I-270 north until you get to the exit.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and suggested instructions to get to our new hotel.

"For someone looking for a place to stay in the greater DC area that was more modestly priced, but still close enough to have good access to downtown, this is a good choice." This sentence really does some up how convenient we are to the nations capital and guests will enjoy the fact that our pricing is really good especially for such an 'upscale' Hampton model. Hope you can come back soon!

Service was excellent, bed was excellent, convenient...I can't say enough good. The room was large and had convenient outlets for all of our plug ins! Shower was great. Wonderful replacement for the Hampton that closed in Germantown.

Hello! Wonderful review for us - thank you! The added outlets have really generated great feedback for the new hotel. The attention to detail and comfort that our owners and investors had planned for the new built hotel has really paid of. Not sure if you knew but we are actually a LEED designed hotel and we are working towards getting our LEED certification. So great focus on sustainability, energy efficiency and water conservation. So pleased you found us and please share with friends and colleagues. We would love to welcome you all!

Was working in the area and found this place online. Great location and great facility. Staff was great, checked me in in about 5 minutes. Room was huge but the best was the bed!! Extremely comfortable. Chairs need to be a little more comfortable.

The experience we had was exceptional. From our first conversation with Layla as we planned the accommodations for all of our traveling family for our sons wedding. To the quality of the lobby and amenities this hotel was top notch. The rooms where clean and new, the staff was friendly and extremely helpful. We will definitely stay here again!

Lobby was a little under par, meeting space was good and the staff was very good they took care of my needs without questioning it. I had a good time at this hotel and my clients were also treated very well.

We stayed at this hotel for the first time as it has only been open for about 10 weeks. Everything was new and the people were really friendly. The free internet was fast and the complimentary breakfast was very nice. We will definitely stay here when we come back to the Gaithersburg/Germantown area.

One of the best Hampton inns I've stayed in, very nicely finished and CLEAN! The only negatives were the small parking lot (there's an adjacent lot you can use behind the hotel) and the complimentary breakfast didn't have many different options, it was standard fare
