Reviewed 15 November 2013

Great location with many restaurants and attractions nearby. Hotel parking is convenient but pricey. Metro station is practically next door. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Cons: Price for quality of accommodations. I don't look for luxury, but the facility could use some updating. It is clean and well kept, but past time for some new carpet, furnishings. I stay there because it is next door to ASTD and so convenient.

Stayed at Old Town Hampton Inn over Veterans wknd. Hotel is neat and clean, staff are friendly and helpful. This is not a glamorous hotel, but very functional -- and after all, you want to experience Old Town or DC, not stay in the hotel all day! Easily walkable to all of Old Town shops/cafes, easily accessible to King St metro (2blocks away) for a quick metro ride to DC. For the cost and convenience, I really don't think you can beat this hotel in Old Town. [NOTE: I parked on street (pay stations for meters right outside front door); somewhat cumbersome but better than paying for parking garage.]

This Hampton Inn was less expensive than the one by National Harbor and had free parking. The shuttle service to Old Town was good and we didn't have to wait long either going or coming back to the hotel. I would definitely stay there again when visiting the Washington DC area.

An easy 1 1/2 block walk from King street Metro stop. Updated lobby with good breakfast. Easy to visit all the Alexandria sights as it is right on King St, and free trolley goes by the door. quick to metro for DC touring access. Rooms are a somewhat dated but spacious and clean. Lobby has been updated. Have stayed here twice on business trips to Alexandria and DC and prefer it to the boutiques hotels nearby with really tiny rooms

Room Tip: Google a map of address, since Alexandria streets are older and have diagonal streets which can conf...

Enjoyed our stay while visiting Alexandria and Washington DC. Great location and covered parking. The breakfast was very good each morning and the room was very quiet. Staff most helpful. We would certainly stay here again when visiting the area .

We wanted to do some sightseeing in Washington DC and this hotel was onlt 400 metres from the Metro station, where we could get the train to Smithsonion to begin our tour of the DC sights.
We were pleasantly surprised with the efficient welcome we received and the room was just ideal for what we wanted.
As we had a car we wanted to use the hotel's underground car park ($15 per day) but finding it was not as simple as the diagramatic map seemed to show.
The breakfast was adequate and had good variety to suit a plethora of needs and diets.
This is an ideal hotel to choose when visiting Washington DC and we will certainly use it again whenever we are in the area.
One small niggle, which wasn't the hotel's fault, was the State, Tourist and other taxes levied on our bill. Do the authorities want to frighten away tourists?

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel and the noise from aircraft using nearby Ronald Reagan Nation...

We had an excellent stay at the Hampton Inn-King Street while on a recent visit to Washington D.C. The hotel is a quick walk from the Metro station. Our room was large, clean and comfortable and located on the 4th floor facing King Street. No street noise. We asked for a mini fridge and microwave which was immediately brought to us. The free internet service was convenient. The complimentary breakfast was plentiful - as a light eater I had fresh fruit and greek yoghurt. I also liked the warm cookies in the evening. King Street is a fun place to walk and see the shops. For this reason and the close proximity to the Metro, we will definitely stay at this hotel again.
