Overnight stay for business. Credit Cards and 2 checks stolen. Management unconcerned and defensive. Police report filed and still under investigation. DO NOT STAY HERE!

Okay, this is the Hampton Inn, so don't expect high-end amenities. It was clean, the rooms were large enough, the staff were friendly, and it had the usual high-carb low-quality breakfast bar you'd expect. It's fine for what it is, but I wouldn't choose to stay here. For the price, I think you can do much better. However, I haven't been in DC for two years so prices may have jumped considerably.

The biggest problem is that they are so dang far from everything. There is nothing within walking distance. They do have a shuttle to old town, the metro, and DCA, but you are dependent upon their availability. If you have your own vehicle, then that changes the equation and may make it a more desirable place to stay.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review on our hotel. We appreciate all comments, weather bad or good, so that we can improve our guest's experience.

We strive to make every guest happy and where as we are not located in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, we offer items the other hotels do not such as free parking and lower room rates. Most of our guests are very pleased with the shuttle service and wait times are usually not long and we give estimated times of arrival.

When traveling through the area again, please stay with us and try out the new breakfast element that has been added - Fresh Made Oatmeal with hearty topping choices. I think you will find this heart healthy item a nice addition.

Quite hard to fault it. Used the shuttle to the station on two days and it worked seamlessly. The hotel was clean, the breakfast was expansive and the desk staff were very helpful. The only things I would criticise were that there wasn't coffee on tap as I had been led to believe and the television didn't seem to have any way of automatically adjusting to accomodate the bizarre array of aspect ratios for different channels.

Arrived at Reagan at 10:30PM. Called for advertised shuttle service. Where advised that we had two options: 1) wait 40 minutes for the next shuttle 2) walk 15 minutes to the Metro station, figure out how to work the ticket machine, travel with luggage to "the last stop", call them when we got to the last stop and they would pick us up there. Given the hour, the fact that we were unfamiliar with the Metro system, and are senior citizens with luggage, we called a cab. Which cost us $30. Our son who lives in DC was furious at the Metro suggestion, given the previously mentioned circumstances and the resent problems at night on the Metro with "flash mob" violence and robberies. There were two vans parked in front of the reception canopy at the hotel upon arrival. We were told they were unable to give us a non smoking King room, despite our "Diamond Status" with Hilton and the fact that we had reserved and prepaid. After making the desk clerk aware of our allergy issue, we were given a non smoking room. The room had a double bed, smelled of stale urine, and was hot (A/C not on), but it was non smoking. We did make our issues known to management. We were informed that they do have three vans for guest pick up, but can only use one at a time. The room problem, they have so many "Diamond Status" Hilton guests that they can't honor their requests. So basically, if you don't like it stay somewhere else. And be assured in the future we will.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere. Management is poor and unconcerned about guest issues, in our opinion. Hotel is located directly on a highway interchange. No "old town" in site.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review on our hotel. We appreciate all comments, weather bad or good, so that we can improve our guest's experience. Safety and security of our guests is if the utmost importance. The airport is located about 15-20 minutes from the hotel and we do offer the free shuttle, however, guests may have to wait for the shuttle to return to pick them up based upon the current location of the vans. We do give customers the expected wait time and in your case, an alternative method of getting to us. We will use your comments refresh our staff that not all travelers are familiar with metro systems.

We appreciate your Diamond Status with Hilton Honors and always try to accommodate all requests, however, if the hotel is full, this may not be possible.

Please come and visit with us again when you return to the Alexandria area. We would love to get another opportunity to WOW you.

I traveled to Washington, DC for business and stayed at the Hampton Alexandria Old Town Area South. The price was A LOT more reasonable since the hotel was outside the city. There is a complimentary shuttle to/from Reagan National Airport, the Huntington Metro Station, and Old Town. Included in the price of the room is free WiFi and a breakfast plus access to a fitness center. I would stay here again for business or leisure - the shuttle really sold me on this property as well as the excellent service.
