“great new hotel”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

This is a recently opened hotel and it looks it. Everything is spotless-the rooms are very clean and modern. The front desk staff are extremely friendly and helpful as are the valet staff and bell staff. Rooms are a bit small, but expected for a city hotel. Location is within walking distance to restaurants and historic sites-a good walking distance but doable nonetheless. We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is ideally placed as it is only 1 block from the White House with the Washington Monument and Smithsonian museums a little further away. Our first room was at the back where we heard music coming from a nearby night club. We asked for and got a change of room being giving one at the front of the hotel. The room was spacious and very clean, which is what we expect from hotels in the Hilton group. Breakfast is included in the price and is more than ample for our needs. The staff were excellent and answered any queries re directions etc.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the front

Like some of the other reviewers, we had an outstanding service experience from the staff at this hotel. I travel a lot for work, subsequently staying in a lot of hotels, and I can honestly say I haven't had better service anywhere on the plant than at this hotel. It is clear they are trying to take good care of their guests. We too had to check in early and Alex made it super easy to do so. They were great with restaurant recommendations, even calling to make reservations on our behalf, which is something you don't expect from a Hampton class hotel. The hotel location is terrific, so close to the train station and White House. Next time we're in DC, we won't even think of staying someplace else.

The staff at this hotel was phenomenal. We arrived just a couple of minutes after 10 a.m., which is when the breakfast bar closes. The ladies closing up overheard us telling the desk clerk we were disappointed that we'd missed it. They immediately waved us over and guided us through, helping us make selections and making us feel especially welcome. Over the next three days we had several encounters with the desk staff who were always very accommodating, professional, and pleasant. Ditto the guys handling valet parking out front. Even though we didn't have a car, they always greeted us when arriving or departing. While we didn't see the housekeeping staff, we appreciated their service. The room was clean, attractive, and very comfortable. Did I mention the food was good? The location was great - just one block from the Farragut West Metro station and close to nice restaurants too. We would recommend this hotel highly and would definitely stay there again if we ever return to D.C.

Green Features: We were pleasantly surprised to see the waste baskets in the rooms had a divider to separate recyclables from trash.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel as a treat for my birthday and to attend a 80s Costume Party in the city. I love the location because it was near some pretty good restaurants, the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful and the rooms were clean. The problems that I had with the hotel is that we had two beds. I booked my room a month ago and confirmed a late check in with a King Bed. They did not have any King rooms available when we arrived at 7:30pm and my special birthday weekend was spend in a Queen bed that felt more like a double with a view of a brick wall and someone's screen saver on the monitor in the office next door. Lastly, please make sure you check your receipt before you leave because 10% sales tax on a $30.00 parking tab is not $5.40! Not sure why kind of math they are using but I would say question all of the extra fees.

This was a very nice hotel and was within walking distance to the White House, national mall, and other various monuments. It was also very close to a metro line for getting around by train.

The lobby was nice and the free breakfast was very good. The staff was very friendly.

The only downside was that our room was extremely small. In fact it was one of the smallest rooms I have ever stayed in. It also did not have a bathtub (only shower.) Also it faced two buildings looking out both windows so we had no view at all. If this is important you might want to ask for a street facing room.

Room Tip: Ask for a street facing room. If you would like a bathtub make sure you ask for it!

Dear Tim H:
Thank you for sharing your feedback about your stay at the Hampton Inn-DC/White House. We have a great location in Downtown DC, but as you stated some rooms are facing another building. We do our best to meet our guest's preferences, especially for bathtubs and they are available to reserve. I'm glad to hear our staff were friendly in their service, and we hope you'll consider giving us another opportunity to "WOW" in DC.
