We researched long and hard as to where to base ourselves in DC. It had to be safe, and convenient to local shopping and transport. And because we are a family of 5, it had to be affordable as we need 2 rooms wherever we go. The Hampton Inn and the Silver Spring area met our needs admirably.
We were provided with adjoining rooms which meant we had plenty of space and easy access to be with (or get away from) each other. The beds were comfortable and pillows were plentiful albeit on the soft side. A plus after coming directly from NYC was the absolute quiet at night. The breakfast room had a nice ambience and the selection of cereals, yoghurt, hot food and pastries more than met our needs for the long days out walking. The always available tea and coffee was also handy rather than having to make a cuppa in our room at the end of the day.
Probably the only drawback was the lack of a mini-fridge. Although ice was available, it did not keep long.
The location in Silver Spring was outstanding. Within easy walking distance of the Metro, we had no trouble finding our way there from the station even with our bags in tow. It also made it quick and easy to head downtown for sightseeing. The number of people, shops and restaurants around gave the area some vibrancy in the evening.
We used the valet parking as we only had a car for one night however it a more economical option is to use the car park behind the hotel.
Staff were available and friendly whenever we needed them. We would happily stay here again.
