“Great hotel outside of Washington DC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

Hampton Inn's are always a great deal. Hotel was clean, room was great, service was great and the free hot breakfast is always a nice treat. The free shuttle service to the metro Station and to Old Town Alexandria is very good. Saves time and money. Enjoyed our stay and would go back.

Room Tip: All suites are good value.

I was looking to stay at an Embassy Suites in Alexandria or DC, but found the lack of a pool, or expensive parking a turn off. We came across the Hampton Inn & Suites in Alexandria, and it was a much better value. The rooms were clean, the staff was very friendly, the shuttle to the METRO was excellent, and free parking were very convenient. The breakfast, while not as "premium" as Embassy Suites, was not the typical cold cereal and toast of most places, it had a hot food service, that changed each day, you cook waffles,and rotated fruit selections. I would stay again on another trip to DC.

I spent a couple of nights at this hotel and was very impressed by the rooms and, more importantly, by the service provided by the friendly, accommodating staff.

A shuttle is available to take you to and from the nearby metro. Take advantage of it! It's a convenient way to enjoy the sights of DC without dealing with the stress of traffic.

Not a great experience. The maid forgot to clean the bathroom after the previous guest left. Towels on the floor, trash in can, soap in dish, washrags used.... Makes you wonder what else she missed. The hotel sent someone right up to clean, but still, first impressions are everything. There are three elevators, one of which is always inop (according to desk). A second one went down during our stay, and the third felt like it needed service too. Also, our tub had had caulk peeling of the edges and the vent in the ceiling might be falling out in the next couple months. Breakfast was average at best. This really felt like a days inn instead of a Hampton. I'm a little surprised they are allowed to keep the Hampton brand.

But....for what we paid and the area, it's still not a terrible deal. Weigh your options first, but in a pinch, this will do. Just make sure you room is clean when you get there.

I'll keep this to the basicis.
1. SERVICE - really wonderful! Desk staff was top notch!! Kind, courteous although they were super busy.
2. ROOM - Room was renovated, with comfortable bedding, linens, and furniture. It appears that the hotel does a good job of staying on top of the high occupancy. Only downside, if you call it one is that the a/c does have to turn off ( we like the white noise of an a/c). Room a/c can be super cold, but that's basically a good thing!
3. BREAKFAST: totally a Hampton breakfast, but better stocked. So, it's got the hot items like omelettes and sausage but they do a good job of not runnng out even at 9:45a.
4. PARKING GARAGE: It's nice that it's there. Not so well marked but what you should do is pull in to the front, go in and then they'll explain getting beeped into the garage from the back. (super tiny spots. do not attempt with a larger SUV)
5. LOCATION: OMG! Awesome. Old Town trolley runs (free) and you are picked up out front and dropped off not far from hotel. Metro is super close.

Don't think twice - this is a great value. It covers all you needs. It's not the Hilton but then again, you aren't paying full service price. (and I've stayed at the Hilton Old Town too, so I have a good basis of comparison)

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of the hall like the 15s and 16s are quiet.

We have always been pleased with Hampton Inns and this one was not exception. The staff was friendly and courteous, the hallways and rooms were clean and odorless, and the beds and pillows were very comfortable! The breakfast room was clean and spacious, and the food items were continually resupplied. Also the location was excellent, just a short shuttle ride to the Metro into DC. Our morning shuttle driver, Matthew, was particularly helpful when it came to using the Metro system. We would highly recommend this hotel!
