“First class staff, service and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This was a great place to stay, particularly if your goal is to use your room just as a place to sleep. The rooms are modest, but very clean and nicely decorated. We walked to all the sites easily and the front desk staff was very helpful with directions. Joe, in particular, was so professional, welcoming, friendly and helpful. A true professional and exceptional at his job. Breakfast was a nice plus. Highly recommend this hotel and will go back the next time we go to D.C.

We checked in for a recent long weekend, intent on sightseeing. We chose this hotel primarily for its location close to metro stops and it's proximity to Pennsylvania Avenue and the National Mall. We arrived by AMTRAK at Union Station, strolled over to the Red Line Metro, and in minutes were just 2 blocks from the Hampton.

Everyone on the staff was extremely friendly and helpful from check in to check out. We had a few questions and minor problems, and each was dealt with quickly and with professionalism. We loved the comfortable lobby, and it was so nice to sit there when enjoying the well presented breakfast. There's a coin op laundry area in the lower level. Easy to use, and a great convenience.

I obviously booked this hotel based on location which worked out great. The staff was was very helpful. My biggest complaint would be the breakfast. For such a "premium" advertised hotel would have liked to seen a better offering. The scrambled eggs for example were not really edible and obviously not made fresh or maybe made from powder. Just would think a better menu would be in order for this higher end hotel. Great stay otherwise would recommed

This is a great hotel for a number of reasons. It appears new and very clean and the location is about a block from the White House. The staff is exceptional. I travel a lot and the staff can make or break a stay, this staff made my stay. This will be where I stay when I travel to DC in the future.

I will start with we left from Texas August 16th at 6:08 am had a delay in Atlanta of 3 hours arrived at the hotel around 5:30 our room was not ready. We were all tired and just wanted to unwind, they told us it would be 1 to 2 hours before we could get a room. I was upset however Diana did get us into 2 seperate rooms. The next day we went to Baltimore for the entire day arriving at around 5:30 to the hotel we had to move into another room which was fine so our family could be together. Diana went above and beyond to help us move our belongings which was great since we had a long day. Diana is a wonderful example of a hotel manager in the making. You need more people like her that go above and beyond.

Have been HHilton honors member for 3 years and stay primarily at Hampton Inns. Was really looking forward to this stay but didn't have the greatest experience; in fact this is my lowest Hampton review ever. Started off by getting a disabled ready room on the 2nd floor which is really ground floor of the alley that is in the back. Dumpster picked up by our window at 04:00 each morning; lovely! There was some sort of frat party in the same alley one night with loud music, drinking, bongo drums - called front desk 3 times to inquire about the noise, each time they said they would investigate and call back; they never did. Breakfast buffet was the stingiest I have ever encountered, waffle batter watered down, had to ask for bread slices and was given them one at a time! And, grossest of all was the woman at the buffet picking up spillover from the corn flakes, cheerios and fruit loops on the counter and placing it back in the dispenser! Asked front desk to order us a cab for the airport and they ordered a limo.
The location was great, very near subway and White House. Be advised, this section of DC rolls up the sidewalks at 6pm and you may need to walk closer to Dupont circle for a meal.
I hope they iron out the wrinkles as it is a great location, has a nice boutique style and majority of staff were very pleasant. Good luck with it.

Room Tip: Second floor was noisy with alley in the back - dumpster pickup and frat party.
