“Unbeatable location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

Great location for touring the DC area in your own vehicle. Clean hotel with friendly staff, expansive rooms, and an excellent breakfast. There was plentiful free parking. Highway noise was not a problem for us, and we were on the side facing the highway. We would return.

This hotel has a very dedicated staff who went above and beyond to find a very special, priceless item we had left the week before. Hilda made it her personal mission to search the entire hotel until she found it for us. She searched our previous room while I waited! She dug through piles of linens in the laundry room. Once she found it she immediately called us and returned it instantly. We are incredibly impressed, not many people are this dedicated to helping others these days. Thank you, Hilda and the entire staff at Hampton Inn & Suites Alexandria Old Town.

This hotel was clean, with a good, hot breakfast and nice, large hotel rooms. Each room has a mini-fridge, and microwave - which is great for travelling with kids since you can always keep snacks on hand, and keep water bottles cold for the long day ahead. But the best part, by far, was the free shuttle service to the local Metro. We would simply alert the front desk that we were ready to go and within minutes, a friendly driver brought us to the Huntington Metro stop and very shortly, we were in the heart of DC. We always grabbed a to-go breakfast bag of apple, water, granola bar, and muffin on our way out too! On the way back, when we were one stop away, we would call the hotel and by the time we walked outside, the shuttle was outside waiting for us. Download the iTrans DC app for a Metro map and it will tell you exactly what stop to get off for whatever you wish to see. The hotel isn't in a scenic location (its right on a major road), but for convenience into DC, its worth more than a view.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the golf course, so you aren't dealing with the noise of a major roadway.

Although it was not hotel's fault, room next to us was so noisy. Front desk handled the issue well and they made them quiet immediately. Overall, our stay was very pleasant. One disappointing thing was that they could not provide us extra duvet for the pull out sofa. There are four people staying in the room including two young kids.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

I chose this hotel because I was able to get the best price through AAA. This location is convenient to attractions located in the Washington D.C. and Virgina area. I used a GPS to get to the hotel and it didn't exactly coincide with the actual traffic pattern and street name but once you see it you will probably ignore it on the last few blocks. The hotel is very clean and well kept and the hotel staff were polite and courteous. There is a large lobby where you can sit and wait as well as a large dining area for breakfast. I found the room to be clean and comfortable, however, I thought it was unusual they used a bathtub stopper in the sink. I found the toilet to be too close to the wall which should have been a little further away. I think the room was pretty well insulated because I didn't have to turn the heater on during the night. The room had a cooling fridge for drinks, television, microwave oven and free wi-fi. The wi-fi would occasionally disconnect and you end up having to re-enter the agreement which becomes an inconvenience. The hotel has three elevators available, two to the left of the lobby and one to the right in the dining area. We tend to use the single side which brings you down to the dining area and it seems to be quicker. The breakfast is a combination of continental and hot breakfast which I find it to be sufficient in variety. There are no restaurants that are walking distance and you will have to drive or ask the hotel desk for recommended restaurants that deliver. There is a swimming pool but it was located outdoors and it was closed during our stay at the time. The parking lot does get very crowded if they have a function in the conference rooms. I would definitely stay in this hotel if I were visiting this area in the future.

Typical Hampton Inn. The staff was courteous. Rooms were modernized and always love the duvets versus bedspreads. Breakfast room was always crowded. The staff always kept all the food/beverages stocked. The only negative comment I have is that there is no one wiping down tables in between guests having breakfast. Therefore, I would take a napkin and wet with hot water from the tea service and wipe down the sticky syrup from previous guest before i sat down to eat. I definitely would stay here again though.

This hotel went far above our expectations! The staff was friendly, the hotel was very clean and modern and the complimentary breakfast buffet had anything you could possibly want! The hotel shuttle service was prompt and the front desk staff was helpful. Would definitely stay here again!
