“Great Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Joe at the front desk was super informative and extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms were cleaned every day and the housekeeping staff were very efficient. Hotel was great for the price which included a complimentary breakfast.

Hotel has been converted from a Newspaper office building to a hotel. It has a new modern look to the lobby and rooms. Valet personnel are waiting at the door for arrivals. It is valet parking only. The parking garage across the street.
Rooms are large, we had the king size bed. The pillows were large and hypoallergenic. We were on the 11th floor overlooking the back alley and the buildings behind the hotel.
Ice machines are located on the 3 – 7 floors. 8 – 11 have to go to the other floors. Unfortunately, 6th & 7th floor ice machines were not working either!
Breakfast is the normal fair of eggs, meat, cereals, breads, Danishes, fruit, juices, teas and coffee.
Only a block away from the White House. Easy walking distance to the National Mall and Metro.
Some annoyances, cyclic buzzing sound coming from the roof. Ran the fan on the A/C continuously to drowned out the noise. Garbage truck pickup noise every morning between 4:30 – 6:30 AM.
Overall we were very pleased with the hotel and the location.

Room Tip: Floors on 3 through 7 have ice machines. Rooms in the back of the building will hear the garbage tru...

Green Features: The hotel has recycle bins in the hallways by the elevators and separate waste baskets in the rooms to recycle.

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.
