“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Great hotel, reasonably priced and handy for the metro to get into Washington. Clean comfortable rooms and a nice outdoor swimming pool. Usual Hampton inn breakfast, which is free. Free wifi.
Free trolley down King street to water front stops right outside hotel. Can get boat to Mount Vernon from waterfront which is well worth doing as you get lovely view from the river, though very rushed tour of house as very busy. Boats also go to Georgetown from Alexandria. Metro station is about 5 minutes walk from hotel, very helpful guy at station will show you how to work ticket machines but pay attention he will test you to make sure you know for next time!

Sure you can spend $300 or $400 for more luxurious hotels in town. But if you want a fair price and super-clean, comfortable rooms where you are treated like royalty (appropriate for King St, lol) and appreciated for being there this is the best place to stay in the DC area.

Examples of hospitality: They put out warm chocolate cookies, like a double-tree. We just missed the last one when we checked in. The clerk (Chris, I think) said I'll put one aside for you tomorrow. Sure enough, the next day when we came in from a long-day of site seeing, he recognized us and had one set aside for us.

The hotel is located at the upper end of King St in old town and the FREE trolley stops right in front of the Hotel. The Trolley service runs all day, up and down King St -- about every 20 minutes. You can explore the boutique shops and restaurants, jumping on/off as often as you'd like.

The hotel is also only 1 1/2 blocks from the Metro - so access to DC is very convenient. Limited on-site parking is available under the building hotel.

We stayed for 5 nights and had a great time. Old Town Hampton Inn staff were very kind and courteous to us during our stay. Breakfasts were great with lots of variety and a big economical help too. We enjoyed being able to use the Trolley to go down to the middle of town for dinner each night. Only suggestion for the town of Alexandria to get another trolley running because there was always a wait and some people even got left at their stops due to the trolley being full. Pool was great and the lifeguard was very pleasant. The Metro is very close and easy to maneuver to and from DC. There was a washer and dryer we were able to use. Wifi was free. Would definitely stay again at Old Town Alexandria Hampton Inn!

The room was looked in a nice and quite area. The hotel was looked a couple of blocks from the Metro. That made traveling to downtown D.C. very easy. The area around the hotel was pleasant and walk-able.

This Hampton Inn had everything we needed for a one-night stay in the DC area. Best complimentary breakfast of any other hotel where we have stayed. Convenience to King Street Metro can not be beat...we were at the Nationals Stadium in about 20 minutes. Can be at any of the Smithsonian museums in about 15 minutes. Quietest hotel we have ever stayed in...only heard one door slam at about 8AM when we were already up and around. Plan on recommending this hotel to all friends and family who are travelling to DC.

We spent two nights in Alexandria and chose this hotel for it's central location to all the shops and restaurants. The free trolley comes right in front of the hotel, but I enjoyed strolling down King St. even more. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. Our minivan was extra long with a hitch and four bikes, so we told the front desk of our parking concerns. They allowed us to park it in back instead of the garage. Yes, $20/day for parking feels steep, but we wanted to be comfortable knowing that our bikes were safe. I liked the free breakfast. It's a modest variety of hot and cold, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, etc. It's a wonderful convenience to not have to figure out your first meal of the day. Our only complaint would be that the A/C fan unit was loud in our room. Overall we would stay here again.

In general I found the hotel adequate, however the fitness facility left a lot to be desired. The hours were inconvenient and were not advertised prior to making the reservation. The quality of the equipment was poor and the room is very small. The hotel tends to be filled with tourists and children that come and go at late hours and aren't considerate of those who are not on vacation. Additionally, the rooms need a face lift and the HVAC system is loud and inefficient. However, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent. The breakfast is great.
