“Great Value and Clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Just got back from a three night stay here. We booked this hotel the night before departing for DC during this busy April Vacation period, and we were surprised to get a very very cheap rate. The shining aspect to this hotel was clearly its value: you get free parking, internet, breakfast, parking, and shuttle all for one cheap rate. These are all things that the more expensive hotels in DC lack. The hotel was also immaculate. The housekeepers cleaned every portion of our room from top to bottom, refilling everything from tissues to the sheath in the ice bucket. My only complaint about anything at all is that while the halls, lobby, and bathrooms seem relatively new, the carpeting in the room seemed a little worn and dated; but overall not a really big issue. The breakfast was all that was needed and never too crowded (even during this busy week). The staff at this hotel absolutely bends over backwards for their guests as well. They provide two shuttles, one to Old Town Alexandria (about a 5 minute ride) and one to the Huntington Metro Station (about a 3-5 minute ride pending traffic lights), and they take you and come pick you up whenever you are ready versus sticking to a strict schedule. People may think that the location is a bit too far from the city, but it is not. With the shuttle, this hotel turns into a quiet retreat near the city. Overall, not only would I come back to this hotel but this hotel showed me that staying in Alexandria is the best way to see DC.

best location to see all the DC and Northern VA..easy access to route 495, 395, George Washington Parkway and hwy 1 south, and Potomac river. Good service and nice rooms. Get the new wing with 1000 to 7000 numbers, the old wing can be well worn.

Room Tip: rooms on the Potomac side are best and higher the better.

I stay here anytime I come to DC for pleasure. The rooms are very clean and organized and the location is excellent for both DC, Old Town and Fairfax County. Breakfast is a good value. Fresh cut fruit is some of the best I've tasted. Highly recommend it. Manager was very accommodating in addressing a price concern I had and made me feel valued. A minor item: the bathroom toilet is tucked next to the wall....that's not desirable - and especially when the bathrooms are quite large. The desk staff was very nice and very helpful - but not too experienced and not too familiar with the area. Language can also be a challenge, as most were foreign. Overall, this is a great value and I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I had to be in this part of DC.

Room Tip: When you get off the freeway going south on Rte 1, be sure to get over in the left lane early or you...

The staff was great. We stayed there march 27, 28, 29 30, we left april 1. they had a group of church people there. (alot) they where making 5-6 waffles per person. so other couldn't make any. We booked through priceline(will not do this again) really not happy about the mornings. we wanted to get up and go, but it was not possible. I wish i was told ahead of time that it was booked like this. I am not races, could be anyone. there was like 25 in a group at a time. they got to eat in the banquet rooms, but had to use what the other guest use to get there stuff. not please at all about this. rooms great!!! the staff was great. plus there was so many people there. not enough hot water!!!!!!!!!! we got up at 6:30! the toilet made an odd noise when flushed.

Room Tip: love the clean rooms. and someone making the bed. at pet peeve of mine.

We stayed at this hotel March 26,27, & 28. This was our 2nd stay at the hotel. The hotel is very clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the price includes a great buffet style breakfast. There's also free shuttle service to the Metro and Old Town. The rooms are spacious and have a large flat screen tv. There is always fresh regular and decaf coffee in the lobby along with hot water for tea. I will stay here whenever I am in the area and highly recommend this hotel.

Great location for touring the DC area in your own vehicle. Clean hotel with friendly staff, expansive rooms, and an excellent breakfast. There was plentiful free parking. Highway noise was not a problem for us, and we were on the side facing the highway. We would return.

This hotel has a very dedicated staff who went above and beyond to find a very special, priceless item we had left the week before. Hilda made it her personal mission to search the entire hotel until she found it for us. She searched our previous room while I waited! She dug through piles of linens in the laundry room. Once she found it she immediately called us and returned it instantly. We are incredibly impressed, not many people are this dedicated to helping others these days. Thank you, Hilda and the entire staff at Hampton Inn & Suites Alexandria Old Town.
