“Nice hotel in odd location”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Nicely appointed and maintained hotel in a central but odd location. Breakfast room is expansive and a fair number of choices for meal selection. Beds were new and firm (maybe a bit too much so for some). A little bit hard to get to if you are not familiar with the area.

If you are looking for a place where you will wake-up, enjoy the city, and then return at night, this place is for you. The van driver will take you from/to the airport, metro station, and other close destinations (he even took me to the local 7/11). The driver is also a great source of local information.

The friendly and helpful staff made our stay very pleasant! I would definitely stay at this location again. I made my reservations at the last minute due to an early flight and threat of storms. The hotel was very convenient and close to the airport.

We did not realize how far from the heart of Old Town this was when we booked it and arrived from the airport with no transportation. They do offer a shuttle to the closest Metro station, Old Town, and the airport, so you can get by. However, there is nothing near the hotel (restaurants, convenience stores, things to do) so once you are heading in for the night you need to have whatever you want to avoid summoning the shuttle again. The staff was very nice and friendly, the rooms were typical for a HI as was breakfast. The shuttle drivers were also sweet and helpful. If you are going to spend time in Old Town, though, I'd check prices at the HI that is right on King Street. If you have transportation, it may be worth it to save the difference in cost and drive.

This property is quite large. Seven floors and we were on the top one with a great view. Getting into the parking lot is a little tricky. No matter which way you are coming from the entrance is small, poorly marked, and a very quick right turn.
Once in though the staff is well organized. Our weekend coincided with a number of "end of school field trips" and graduations from schools in the area. Even with this high volume of traffic the front desk personnel were courteous and helpful. As always our room was fine and was equipped with a fridge/micro wave combo. The breakfast area was large and the staff was able to handle the crowds. Unfortunately the present Hampton breakfast offering of "tasteless rubber scrambled eggs" is, in my opinion, well below the Hilton standard. I suggest more offerings such as the Western Omelet.
For those that do not want to hazard the local traffic described above, there is a very convenient shuttle service into and out of 'Old Town". It leaves you off at Market Square which is in the heart of the historic district. Free trolleys run the length of King St which is the main drag. If you are heading into DC, there is a Metro stop near by, and there is an Amtrak Station for long distance travelers.
While this property is not within walking distance to the attractions it is well worth staying at.

Room Tip: Request an upper floor for the view.

Just fabulous. The staff including the drivers were well above average and they could not be more helpful and kind. While the location of the hotel is a little out of the way the distances were handled with finesse and courtesy with convenience far outweighing the location.

If you are visiting DC...then be sure to stay here. Great accomidations with very comfy beds. Access/shuttle to the Metro is a great service and the breakfast as usual helps you start your day right. We had long days visiting DC and great nights relaxing at Hampton.
