“Does No One Vaccuum Any More?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Business trip, so there were meeting rooms. 1st day - in early to set up. Carpet not cleaned from the event the night before. Two days of meetings - carpet not cleaned. Last day, we had had a hospitality event the night before, two of us cleaned the room and moved the trash out into the hall before the event. My room - I moved a chair looking for something I had dropped. More area that had not seen a vaccuum in a long time.

Staff was very polite and friendly, although not always efficient. Breakfast was free - the sausage on the first day was very nice, the potatoes on the 2nd, not so much. Everything else ordinary, neither bad nor good. Very good business office section, although one of the two computers did not register a thumb drive when inserted. Small exercise room but adequate.

Room was nicely laid out, comfortable, and there was a lapboard so one could comfortably use a laptop on the tap. Comfortable chair. Frustrating tv system. Good shower and bathroom layout. Very comfortable bed and great pillows. Fridge and microwave in the room, coffee makes in the bathroom.

Coffee and tea and hot chocolate available in the lobby 24/7 - good snack bar service next to the registration counter.

This place is as advertised. I have stayed here several times and I always get the same thing, a clean, comfortable room. If there is a negative about this property is the location. No good places to eat nearby and the neighborhood is no the best, I won't go for a walk late at night.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, don't worry about the rooms.

Like most Hampton Inn hotels, this one was clean, quiet and on site parking was a nice feature. The beds were comfortable and clean. The breakfast was good - nice offerings and well presented. The room rate was a tad high for retirees on a family trip but convenience to where we were going made it worthwhile.

We stayed here one weekend in September and would definetely stay again, if ever visited Washington again. Considering the rate, this was a great option to stay.
Rooms were extra nice, clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good (served in plastic plates, but I guess that is common in USA...) and shuttle bus to King street metro station worked on time (every half on hour until 11.30 am in the morning and 3 pm till 9.30 pm in the evening).
There was free coffee, cookies and fruit available 24/7 and free business area (with printers) to use.

This hotel is over priced (points or $'s) based on its location? Unfortunately, I do not believed the total value experienced is worth the pricing. I did find the front desk staff to be very professional and helpful. The general services are average and I found nothing "exceptional" about this hotel or my stay.

This hotel surpassed our expectations. Each time we walked in, we were greeted sincerely. The rooms were super clean and the breakfast options were above average for a free breakfast. The shuttle was on time and convenient.

We stayed at this Hampton Inn 4 nights, Sept. 13 - 16. From the time we checked in throughout our stay, the staff was pleasant, accommodating. Our room, towels, bed linens all very clean. This is always the most factor for me. Their breakfast is better than the average. Available with their hot oatmeal (not instant), were cranberries and raisons, almonds and cinnamon sugar. Eggs, prepared differently each day; scrambled, small omelets, etc. Some days bacon, others sausage, Hard boiled eggs, waffle batter. Cold cereals, english muffins, pastries, Milk, coffee, OJ. Apples and bananas available throughout the day and evening. When we returned from DC in the evenings we were pleasantly surprised to find cookies available. The hotel offers a shuttle that runs every 30 minutes from the hotel to the closest metro station. It takes approx. 15 minutes. I think the metro to DC takes about 20-25 minutes depending on where you're headed. Though we had our car with us, we opted for the shuttle and metro and this worked well for us. Overall, we were very pleased we had chosen this Hampton Inn, and we highly recommend it.
