“Family trip to Wash.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

"Fitness Center" was a cramped, poorly ventilated, converted closet with no weights. We were so busy with sightseeing that this turned out not to be a big issue. Double beds were a bit cramped and room was small. Service staff were very good. Breakfast was very good and not too crowded. Location was excellent, close to Metro and right on the trolley line. Overall experience was good and I would stay again.

Stayed one night here during a week-end trip. Very convenient and close to the Metro, which if you are using public transportation, is a huge plus. Hotel is clean and comfortable and beds are great which I have come to expect with this chain. It's one of the reasons why I like to stay at Hampton. Room rate includes breakfast. No view, but who cares when you're not in your room much. Our room was very quiet because it faced the interior/back of the hotel. The only downside was the lack of a mini fridge. I would stay here again if in the area.

The Hampton Inn Old Town in Alexandria, VA is a great place to stay - great location, clean, quiet - and a good value! Stayed here on a friend's recommendation and we were not disappointed. Close to the Metro, great walking/shopping area - safe and secure.

Hampton brand is almost always a good choice. This hotel has great location, good service staff, and clean, comfortable rooms. Great week to visit too as the Cherry Blossoms in the District were at their peak and the King Street metro station just up the block, makes going in and out of DC easy.

The hotel is in a great location with easy access to the metro and Old Town Alexandria. Breakfast was good and the room was nice. The parking garage is small and costs extra. It was my second stay there and I'd stay again.

If you stay in Alexandria, VA, I recommend the Hampton Inn at Old Town Alexandria.

Location - two blocks down from the King Metro (subway) Stop.

Clean, nice rooms, outdoor pool, but there no jacuzzi. Breakfast is provided in the main lobby area. It's convenient, being served 6:00 am - 10:00 am. They usually have fruit, yogurt,cereal, oatmeal, breads, donuts, fixings for waffles, coffee, orange juice, cranberry juice. Scrambled eggs, bacon, and a few other hot items are rotated in throughout the week.

Service - very good, very helpful, will answer any of your questions.

The hotel has a shuttle which can take you to the Ronald Reagan Airport, but the King Street Metro stop is two blocks down, and it's a very common site to see people at any of the metro stations, with their luggage, commuting to the airport. It's your choice.

We arrived about 2 hours before check in time, and the front desk gladly took our luggage, and held it for us behind the front desk. Nice! We then walked down King Street, which is the main street in Old Town Alexandria. It's a pleasant area, safe, and just layed back. I highly recommend visiting Old Town Alexandria, VA. It's worth the trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a refrigerator when you check in, otherwise the rooms don't have them. We asked, and wit...

Our little family of five (three small kids) just returned from a short stay here during our visit to DC. We reserved a no frills room with two-full beds and I'll admit, my first reaction upon entry was, "Oooh, this room looks small". It was a tight squeeze but we survived, no problem. I stay at Hampton Inns all over the country for good reason and this hotel is no exception. The beds were comfortable, the climate control worked well, the bathroom was in very good condition, the shower had good water pressure, the decor was tasteful and well kept and housekeeping did a nice job. I particularly looove the duvet and pillows with varying degrees of firmness depending on what you like. We also love the free hot breakfast in the morning - and it was well stocked during breakfast hours - plus found a place for all of us to sit together even though it was busy. It was a GREAT value for us as it seems that DC hotels were very high-priced for the Cherry Blossom Festival. The hotel is situated on King Street within close walking distance to some coffee shops and restaurants and a short, roughly two block walk to the Metro station which we took to get into DC. We felt extremely safe but I expected as much with Old Town Alexandria, unlike some neighborhoods in DC. The parking garage is secure and in the basement of the building; entry is on Dechantal Street in the back of the building. There weren't a ton of spaces in the garage and it was a tight squeeze for our minivan down there; park early if you need a spot. Kudos to the hotel staff for their friendly demeanor during our check-in, comings and goings. Overall, this is a safe bet and we're glad we stayed.
