“Perfect place to explore Washington DC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights in July/August 2012 and it was fantastic. Staff extremely helpful & friendly and even though renovations had started the day I arrived, nothing was a bother to them. The concierge assisted me with transport around DC and provided maps to navigate to the tourists sights. The room was large, clean & bed comfy, with a microwave and with free WiFi. There was also a great list of nearby restaurants of all different varieties provided in the rooms, Breakfast was great with a different variety each day and a small grocery store to purchase snacks & even frozen meals.. A short walk to Chinatown & shopping and a little further to some of the tourist sights like the National Archives. I was very happy with my stay here and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone travelling to DC for business or pleasure,

We were at Hampton Inn from Dec.26-30.
Due to the snow storm on Dec.26 we didn't get to the hotel until midnight. Check in was fast.
Room was clean , bedding was comfy. In room toiletries only came with shampoo, conditioner,mouth wash, soap and moisturizer.It did not include body wash, you need to go to concierge to ask for it.
Morning breakfast was more than adequate.We were there for 4 days,a different hot items was served everyday.There were 2 waffle machines so the line moves quite fast.The ladies restocked the food trays frequently. The servers were so busy keeping the place clean. They always carry a smile on their face.
There were plenty of seating. But everyone like to sleep in till the last moment and get to the restaurant 5 minutes before it close at 10am.
The coffee bar always fully stocked with hot chocolate ,tea bags, coffee and creamers.
We left the car with the valet and did not use it until we left on out last day. It took us about 20 minutes to get to National Mall. Mind you we walked pretty fast.
There were lots of budget friendly restaurants close by ,too. Must try the Busboys and Poets.which was 5 mins walk away.We also ate at Nando Peri Peri.
The closest Metro station is Gallery Place, about 10 mins walk.
One day we took the metro to go the Zoo, cost about $2.80 each(off peak hour).After that we went to Pentagon City to shop and ate at Lebanese Tarverna,cost $3.80( peak hour),then back to Gallery place for $2.80.We did not need to buy the one day pass which cost $14.
Overall Hampton Inn in Washington met our need in our budget friendly family trip.

Room Tip: Go to breakfast before 9:30am to avoid the crowd.

Everything was perfect during my stay in this hotel. The only weak point was about the parking which was 46$ per night which is a little bit expensive. However, we were lucky to been there in Holiday period that all the park meters on the street where free.
The breakfast was not as good as I was expecting this 4 star hotel.

3 adults shared one room - 2 queen beds. We arrived at different times in the early morning, well before check in. Fully booked hotel, but staff promptly and pleasantly checked our bags and were equally prompt in delivering to our room when we re-convened at the hotel in the evening. Plenty of linens and towels for the three of us. Breakfast area and food selection: hard to ask for anything more from a hotel of this class. All staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Selected this hotel for location and based on others' reviews of the friendly service and ample breakfast served in pleasant setting: very efficient way to start a long day of sightseeing. Will stay here again.

Location is everything with this Hampton. Just two blocks from the Chinatown/Gallery Place Metro stop and in a safe area, even at night. I choose Hampton over most brands when I travel and this property met my expectations. Room was quite small but since we were out sightseeing most of the day, this was not really an issue. The breakfast area was crazy busy in the morning - to the point where you might want to consider getting a decent full breakfast elsewhere. With the number of guests staying, it almost seems like having a second breakfast area is a necessity. Staff was fairly responsive to requests. Very friendly upon check in.

Pool and hot tub area was very small but that is to be expected for such an urban hotel.

We will definitely return to this property again.

This is one of the most efficient and clean Hampton Inns around. They even have a bar downstairs. Clean, modern. Great value. Good location. I stay at Hilton's a lot and this one was one of the most pleasant stays last year. The only downside is breakfast- standard Hampton american fare, if you are into it, it is OK, but I find it distasteful.

This is a very good Hampton Inn. The staff at the front desk was always friendly and helpful. It is a short walk from the metro. The area around the hotel seemed very safe and I had no issues walking around. I would say that that the area around the metro station didn't feel as safe though.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I am not from the city and it was hard to sleep with all the street noise but then I am in the middle of a city so I can't really expect anything different.

One disadvantage was that there were only two elevators in the busy hotel.

Breakfast was also busy but it was well staff and food was always available.
