Stayed at this Hampton a couple years ago when visiting DC, so when my husband and I decided to go see a Capitals game we thought we would stay there again. The location is great, right on King Street - great shops and places to eat all within walking distance. Plus it is just across the street from the Blue and Yellow Metro lines.
Unfortunately this time the room wasn't so great. We had reserved a king bed but got two doubles - and I thought oh well - it will be fine. But the beds were hard - really really uncomfortable - and the room had a light smell - a sort of sickening sweet smell.
It was not horrid - and we had so many things planned outside the room - we just made a mental note that we wont be back here after this and dealt with it.
There are two other hotels close by the Hilton and the Embassy Suites - will try one of these or someplace else next time.
NOTE: Breakfast was still okay with enough choices for you to find something and the staff was friendly.
