Hampton Inn & Suites Alexandria Old Town Area South
Ranked #11 of 54 Hotels in Alexandria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2014

We booked a two night stay here at 3 a.m. in the morning to arrive later that day whilst having a terrible night elsewhere, cutting our break there from 3 nights to 1. Our relief at finding somewhere to go at such short notice probably made us more impressed than we might have been but I can honestly say every member of staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel provided so much more than I expected. In particular:

suite-spacious, well equipped, comfy beds and good to have mini kitchen
breakfast-far better than I was expecting
shuttle buses-used this three times- twice to old Town Alexandria and once to get Metro into DC itself.
Old Town Alexandria itself- very nice area we would not have heard of had it not been for our stay at Hampton inn and Suites
Alicia on the front desk who was charming and extremely helpful
little shop supplying basic foods, snacks, toiletries etc

Whilst proximity to old Town Alexandria was a plus- the actual location is right alongside a very busy multi lane main road-but it is advertised primarily as an airport hotel so this should not be unexpected.

Room Tip: Ask to face the golf course rather than the road-no road noise and a nice view.

This hotel was quick to get my family in and as all Hampton Inn's it's a safe clean place for my family to stay. The pool was excellent and the breakfast was a great value as I have a family of five. If I wasn't so tried when we arrived the Hotel offered free shuttle service to and from the local night life area which I have not seen before which was very impressive.

We experienced great service, hotel was clean and near to highway. Our room was very clean but the beds were very hard. Overall we would probably return and try a different room in the hope to find a softer bed :)

Great location to National Harbor. Free shuttle service to the DC Metro made it very easy to go sight-seeing in DC without worrying about a car. Also, the free self-parking was an added plus to the stay. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

This hotel was super clean, super quiet and a great value. Plus you always receive a free breakfast at Hampton Inn. Even if it's just yogurt and toast with coffee, tea or juice - it's a nice perk of staying here.
We had nothing but praise for the staff that we came into contact with during our stay in August, 2014.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We rented a car and were able to go everywhere quickly from this location.
The air conditioning in our room worked fabulously so that made us Texans quite happy! We like to be cold at night!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor - away from the elevators. Or a corner room on the side you want.

My family arrived in DC and spent four nights. My parents arrived before me and were told there was no reservation in my name and they had no rooms available. My Mom had to call me at the airport to ask for the reservation number. They were then told, "oh, whoever entered the reservation entered the first and last name wrong." My parents then had to wait till well after 4 pm in the hotel lobby until a room was cleaned. They of course were not very happy after several hours of being on the road. Also, after one of our long days of sight seeing we had to stand in the hallway for 15 minutes because our room was just starting to be cleaned (after 4pm again). On the positive side, the hotel is beautiful, clean and the staff were friendly. They have a great shuttle service to the metro (but no longer to the airport which was the main reason I had picked this hotel). For two of our 4 days the 2 main elevators were "Out of Order." The stairs were not an option for both of my folks who have health issues. The only other option was the single elevator over by the breakfast. The wait was long as everyone was using this and this is a large hotel. The breakfasts were very good but frequently we had to ask for things to be filled (OJ, oatmeal, donuts, eggs). The workers were working hard but they are just understaffed. So all in all... very nice and clean hotel... but understaffed in all areas including front desk, breakfast area and maids/housekeepers.

We stayed July 11-18 and check-in was quick and smooth. We not happy with our first room on the second floor after the first night - dusty rug and flooding toilet - but no problems with front desk moving us to another 2-bedroom suite on the fourth floor - much cleaner. Both rooms were first off the elevator so a little noise with people getting on and off the elevator but no elevator machine noises. Other guests had trouble with metro shuttle wait times but we did not - very convenient. We just called the front desk when we needed a pick up. Pool is older and small but we had towels when needed. Breakfast was great - kids loved the Krispy Kreme donuts and lots of selection. We were up early to get into Washington by Metro every day so no breakfast line-ups (waffle machines) for our group. We really just came to the hotel to sleep after a day of touring Washington so we did not spend much time in the hotel. We travelled with two other families who both liked their rooms and the hotel location and price. The other families that travelled with us did experience long waits with the shuttle at the Metro. The shuttles also run to and from the town of Alexandria as well as Metro.

Room Tip: one suite per floor and each are first off the elevator
