“Excellent AAA rates, shuttle to Metro & Washington Reagan.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2013

I stay at this hotel often when I'm on business in the DC Metro area. It's convenient to just about anywhere and the hotel provides an excellent shuttle to the metro, Old Town Alexandria, and Washington Reagan airport. The staff is always extremely helpful. Breakfast is standard Hampton Inn fare, but hey - it's free! The rooms have always been clean & comfortable.

Stayed there to go to the Presidential Inauguration. Clean hotel, ample parking. Friendly staff. The rooms were clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was great and the availability of hot cocoa at any time was perfect for the cold weather outside. It is close ( though not walking distance) to the last stop of the Yellow Metro Line. It was a quick trip to D.C. On the same line you can go to the Ronald Reagan Airport. Or to the Fashion Mall in Pentagon City. (Good for spending money..lol). The hotel provides a shuttle to and from the Metro Station so it was convenient. They do not have safes in the room but they have them through the front desk. The Wi-Fi was super fast! Their robust coffee rocks!!!

The lcation is wonderful for us! Shuttle service is great; plenty of items for breakfast. I've stayed there twice now and found the staff to be friendly, the room cleaned promptly, and the property very quiet although it is in a busy area. It is our hotel of coice and we plan to be there several times this year.

Room Tip: Great view from rooms on the East side (facing the golf course).

We chose this hotel due to location, breakfast, and free van to Old Town and metro.
Everyone went out of way to make shire our stay went well.
Room was clean and fridge and microwave was nice.

I plan on staying at this location when I come back in the spring.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing rear, away from road.

Our family stayed there for 3 nights. The first room was noisy and they promptly changed us to a much quieter room. We were pleased with the room. Had some problems with plumbing which they compensated us for. We stayed on a higher floor and didn't have any problems with the heater. The dining room area was nice and large. Plenty of space for the kids to enjoy being out of the room. The location is good for traveling to DC. Free parking was a nice feature not offered at many other hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms on the golf course side are quieter.

My wife and I stayed at this Hampton Inn for 5 nights in July 2012. It was a long anticipated vacation. We have traveled the USA extensively for years and have always stayed at Hampton Inns. We would pass other hotels just to get to a Hampton Inn. Our stays have always been pleasant. Unfortunately at this Hampton Inn....5821 Richmond Highway, Alexandria, Va. our laptop computer was stolen from our room while we were in Washington. The room was not broken into, but was entered by the cleaning staff to clean and one of their follow up supervisor. Upon reporting the theft to staff we were told they have never had a theft at the hotel before. Some staff came to the room searched and questioned my wife about the incident. We finally got to see the General Manager after trying to see her for about 2 days since no one else seemed to care about solving the matter. Her behavior was un-apologetic and rude. She said they had never had a theft there before, were we sure we had left the computer there, and why did we not take the computer into town. We were treated as though we were trying to defraud the hotel by reporting an incident that did not happen. Therefore, we were forced to call in the police and made a report of the crime. We also called the office for Guest Assistance for Hampton Inns and reported the matter. At a later date we checked with the office for Guest Assistance to hear how they were going to resolve the matter and was told by a rude representative there would be no compensation for the stolen computer. For 2 nights at the hotel we did not sleep due to a noisy A/c unit even after reporting it and a repair man was said to have come in and repaired it. One staff member at the front desk was apologetic to us regarding the theft of our property and the noisy A/c unit. The staff for the shuttle to and from the train station was quite nice. The General Manager and others we spoke to treated us as though we were thieves and liers. With our computer stolen with all my wife's important information and the treatment we received by the hotel management our vacation was ruined. We returned home very hurt and very, very disappointed in this particular Hampton Inn and the Guest Assistance Office . The management of the hotel need a shake up or a ship out!. As for us, we will never stay at another Hampton again or recommend them to anyone.

Room Tip: Always take some time to check out Guest's experience at hotels you plan to stay before booking...

First was that we arrived at a little after 3 to find that our room wasn't ready, the manager called and asked a woman in another language when the room was going to be ready and the woman answered "20 minutes" she said to me in English, "It'll be 10 minutes." She then went home and didn't note or tell the night manager coming in that my family of four was waiting to go to our room. We drove about 7.5 hours and were stuck waiting in the hallway for 1/2 hr. We got no apology. The night manager said, "well she had to go out right away to her next job." So finally we get to the room and the heater sounds like a truck. The maintenance man had to come 3 times and finally had to replace the whole heater. Again no apology. Breakfast was kind of unreal with the egglike substance they served. The final straw was that as we were ready to leave-check out time 11:00- at 10:40 they had the nerve to call and ask if housekeeping could get in the room. I guess they didn't do that to the previous guests or else our room would have been ready. I asked to be compensated for that first night because of the inconveniences of the heater and the waiting and was told to talk to yet another manager the next day who when my husband went to talk to her had no notes or information either. It's weird that they all have tags that say manager on them but they can't manage to help.

Room Tip: Check the heater or a/c when you first get to your room for noise.
