Historical Traveller Reviews of The Hampton Inn and Suites Washington Reagan National Airport Hotel

A beacon of hospitality

from Cottonwood
I recently had the pleasure of staying the Oct. 1st
weekend at this property. Amidst a bevy of nondescript hotel properties, the Hampton Inn and Suites DCA has risen above its competition by providing clean, comfortable accommodations at a fair price. From its welcoming lobby to its spotless rooms, the staff of this hotel takes pride in providing a pleasurable guest experience that comes with a 100% guarantee.

The room I was assigned had a soothing color palette and comfortable furnishings. Complimentary Internet access is provided in the rooms (wireless was in the lobby and meeting rooms) and the desk had ample work space. This property has also been selected to test market their new "Hampton bed"; this bed has plusher linens, and all of the bedding, including the bedspread and pillows, is freshly laundered instead of just the sheets being washed while the "decorative bedspread and pillows" get cleaned less frequently. The bed also had a portable "lap desk" which made it easier to work from the bedroom. The bathroom had numerous bath products and the shower had a curved rod that enlarged the showering space. Most impressive was the cleanliness of the room. I'm a stickler for dirt and this room was spotless! Also there was no airport noise or excessive noise from other guests. I did not use the pool area so I cannot comment on this feature.

The complimentary breakfast featured both hot and cold items and was a definite plus in the morning. The hotel's location is convenient to surrounding restaurants and attractions. The Metro stop is nearby and there is complimentary airport pickup and drop off. Compared to the prices of neighboring hotels, the Hampton Inn and Suites DCA is definitely more "bang for the buck". I have recommended this property to all my local clients as it certainly is tops with me whenever I return to Washington.

Excellent in every way

I am a Hilton Honors member on a budget, so I stay at a lot of Hamptons. This one may be the gem of the chain. As a frequent traveller to the DC area, I have learned to value convenience above all, and this one meets all the criteria. I have stayed here several times, even when it was not the closest hotel to my business there.

The location is very convenient, a short walk from the Metro, and with a shuttle for area restaurants, the airport, and the huge mall nearby. The service and cleanliness are excellent, along with the breakfast and 24-hour coffee in the lobby. There is a pharmacy with groceries within walking distance, and a gas station nearby. Cabs are plentiful.

Staff is very accommodating, cheerfully allowing early check-ins when possible. The business center is small but free. The pool and fitness room are adequate, though not fabulous, but why quibble?

If you can snag a special rate, this hotel is really a great value. I just paid $153 when every other hotel in the area was getting $300 or more.

Great stay, would return...

My wife and I stayed from Sept. 18-22 for our vacation to DC. We found our room to be clean and spacious and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was a great touch, with excellent variety. We never made it to the pool, but noted that it seemed a little small. No hot tub is on site which is a negative due to the amount of walking you need to do in DC.

Our room was a handicap-accessible king located on the 10th floor. This is important to note because our bathroom, though large, had an extremely small vanity. If you will be sharing the vanity it is important to make sure you have a standard room and not an accessible one.

The hotel is a 5 minute brisk walk from the Metro blue/orange line. Most sites are $1.50 or less away on the Metro. There is a great line of restaurants on 23rd just about 2 blocks away and Crystal City has every fast food restaurant (McD's, Subway, Chipotle, etc.) and a number of service shops.

The Hampton is attached to and owned by the same company as the Radisson. The Radisson was a former Days Inn which was converted. The Days Inn parking lot was then converted to the Hampton Inn. It is probably 2 or 3 years old at the most. The personnel that worked there were quite good, from the front desk, to van drivers to the housekeepers. I think that is what sets them apart the most.

Positives: Employees, Location, Cleanliness
Negatives: No Hot Tub, You can hear the room next to you

great stay

from ldp
This hotel is fairly new. It is VERY clean and has a nice free hot breakfast each morning. The front staff is very informative. There is a Chili's, Legal Seafood, Mc.D's, and Subway close by. It is located about one block from the metro. Don't worry with a rental car - just take the metro. Driving and parking in D.C. is bad. There is a car rental place within walking distance if you need one. The only negative thing I would say about this hotel is that the pool is too cold.

I accidently left my cell phone there and housekeeping found it during the afternoon cleaning and had it ready for me. I highly recommend this hotel.

Enjoyed my stay!

from dave1013
I was a guest at this hotel for four nights in July 2005. I was looking forward to my stay after having read the positive reviews. I'm here to say they were pretty much spot on.

Check-in was swift and I was pleased with my room, esp. the vast array of approx. 60 television channels and wired, free high-speed internet access (make sure to get your access code when you check in). My stay was during the Tour de France and they had the Outdoor Life Network (very rarely available in the hotels I have stayed at). The room's air conditioner had plenty of punch to it - it kept the room confortably cool at less than maximum setting - and was not excessively noisy. The room and bathroom were both very clean. Housekeeping service was attentive and prompt. The only time I heard other guests was when someone slammed their door shut. As others have noted, you will not hear aircraft noise.

Self-service laundry is on the 3rd floor, $1.25 to wash and the same to dry. I had a problem with one of the dryers, after putting in the third quarter the control display gave me an "ERR" (i.e., error) message. It would not give me my three quarters back and instead of putting the final two coins in to see if that made a difference, I went down to the front desk to advise them of this apparent problem. The manager went back to the laundry room with me, whereupon he gave me three quarters and we got the other dryer going. Moral of the story here is that the situation received prompt attention and was resolved to my satisfaction. By the way, the dryer was very hot and still going after an hour, when I was running out of time and decided to remove my clothing. You get a lot for your $1.25 here!

My visit was during a time of oppressive heat and humidity, and my business was in the District. This necessitated a walk to the Crystal City Metro Station, about a block and a half distant. Even though the conditions were pretty miserable, esp. in the afternoon coming back, the walk was short enough that it was tolerable. The "shortcut" to the Metro station is to go out the back door, and then turn right. Follows Eads Street to 18th Street, where you will see the Marriott Crystal Gateway. At that point, you can go into the Marriott lobby and follow the inside pathway to the Metro station (go left diagonally upon entering the hotel) or you can cross 18th and turn right on the sidewalk, go underneath the overpass, and access the Metro station that way. Staying on the street is OK in the fall, winter, and spring - but going inside for the last part may be preferable to those who want to escape the withering summer heat for a bit.

There are many other hotels in the vicinity. The Radisson is right next door and the Hilton is a block to the south. The Hampton is closer to the Metro station, which during the summer can be a big deal. Good restaurants are a block or so away - take a right out the front door, or a left out the back door. It's an easy walk even in the summer heat and humidity. The sports bar, located to the right off of Eads a block from the hotel - was quite good. There are also Italian, Lebanese, and Japanese eats in this block-long offering of local restaurants. Legal Seafoods is off of Jefferson Davis Highway. The 7-11 is close by the local restaurants. I never saw the CVS Pharmacy but did find a Rite-Aid in the mall at the Metro station.

The breakfast was standard Hampton fare - an egg and meat offering in the morning, plenty of everything and kept that way by the attentive staff.

The hotel offers complimentary shuttle service to nearby Reagan Airport. You call for pickup upon arrival after having claimed your bags. The return service is on demand and the driver waits by the front desk for prospective customers.

Good location and great service make this an excellent choice. I very much enjoyed my stay.

Great DC area hotel....

from Eric95403
I would have to agree with all the other reviews on this hotel. We stayed between 6/27 - 7/2/05. It's in a perfect location, convenient to area restaurants and the metro line. I was surprised to see the rooms were more upscale than most traditional hotel rooms. The FREE morning breakfasts were a nice way to start the day, as it had a variety of choices to suit most peoples morning fix. If staying in the DC area again, I would not hesitate to book at this hotel again.

The swimming pool was adequate. The one problem with the pool was the limited hours it was open. 6am-10am, then 6pm-10pm. There wasn't a lifeguard or hotel staff watching over swimmers, so I don't know why the hotel had limited hours. It seemed rather odd, and my kids were disapointed when they could not swim in the late afternoon after a hot day around DC.

One thing to watch out for and I never truely knew who's fault this was. When originally making my reservation, I noticed the hotel had a room with a separate bedroom off the living room (and a sleeper sofa in the living room). We definately wanted that room, as while I love my two kids...I like the idea of sleeping in a different room (since my youngest snores and is a restless sleeper). Anyway, the hotel website didn't differenciate the room I wanted too well, so I contacted the hotel directly to find out which room I should book. They told me and I booked my room. When I arrived and went to my room, it was not the room I wanted. My reservation said I had a 1br suite (which I was told to book), but this had everything in one SMALL room. I went downstairs and was told I booked a JR. Suite (although my resv. said I had otherwise). I was also told the hotel was completely booked and I was stuck. After some serious typing on her computer, the front desk person found me a room I had originally wanted. My father in law (whom I made their resv for and also requested the same room type), was not as fortunate. He got stuck with the smaller room for his family. I felt bad, but I did everything they told me to do and was still somehow wrong. I really think they overbooked the room and tried to squeeze us into what was available. Luckily, I wasn't charged extra for the much larger room. Just be aware if you want this type of room. It's not too clear on the website.

great hotel great staff great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Not being familar with DC, my family and I relied upon trip advisor to guide us to a good hotel. The Hampton turned out to be an excellent choice. We arrived early and our room was not ready, so the excellent customer service oriented staff suggested they could switch us from a king room with sleeper to a queen room with sleeper. We said sure, and then they told us the hotel would drop the rate on the room, since it was less expensive. So we received a bonus surprise. The room was very spacious and clean, and had all the amenities we required. The hotel is very nice and offers a good basic breakfast. We had two minor maintenance issues - coffee pot and loose door swinging lock, both of which were fixed while we were sight seeing. The underground parking is good and provides elevator access to the lobby. The hotel is about a block from a street of restaurants that offers practically every cuisine you could imagine, as well as a 7-11. The hotel is also about a block and a half from the Crystal City metro stop, which made it convenient to catch the metro to the tourist sites. The ride to the Smithsonian stop took 20-25 minutes. We were concerned that since we would be so close to Reagan National that we would hear a lot of noise from the planes; however, the location was amazingly quiet both outside and inside the hotel. The guest laundry facilities are adequate, as well. The pool is indoors and very small. We think it had a lifeguard on duty, too! I also saw the desk staff handing out what they called on the road goodie bags to guests who were checking out with small children. The room, location, breakfast, parking, and staff makes this hotel an excellent choice, and we will be sure to stay here again.

HAmpton Inn was a winner

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed in the Hampton Inn and Suites during a conference in DC this week from Monday through Thursday. The rest of my group stayed at the Hilton while I stayed at the Hampton Inn (I didn't make my Hilton reservation in time). I was telling everyone what I had for breakfast (eggs, french toast, sausage, ham) while they munched on apples from the Hilton front desk. My room had a fridge, freezer and microwave; all worked well, just ask the froint desk how to make the microwave work...something about slash key instead of on key. The room was very clean, the maid was there every day, couldn't hear any noises from adjoining rooms or the hallway, elevators were very fast, there is pleanty of places to shop and eat within 2 blocks and the in-room high speed internet worked great.

Overall, I highly recommend the hotel.

Just short of perfect

from timskumwi
We stayed here Wednesday - Sunday nights. Although we had reserved more than 6 months in advance, they informed us that we would not be able to have the same room for all six nights due to a group booking a block of rooms on the same floor. However, to compensate us for having to pack up our stuff and "check out" after our first night, they upgraded us to a nice studio suite. As it turned out we ended up in the exact same room for the rest of the weekend anyway. Can't complain too much because for what we paid, we had a very nice accomodation. This was the only "problem" that keeps us from giving a perfect score to the hotel.

Everything was very clean and appealing. The complimentary soup on Monday - Thursday evenings was a nice surprise. The hot breakfast featured 4 different menus, but also included a wonderful pineapple/orange/grapefruit dish every day.

The Metro is easy to find, as are convenience store, drug store, and restaurants.

Excellent hotel at reasonable price for the area

from nmgirl
My family of four stayed here for just over a week in mid-March, having chosen it based in large part on reviews here. We were quite impressed with this new and well-designed hotel. It is very conveniently located about a 5-minute walk from the Metro (the busy intersection requires care to cross), a 5-minute shuttle ride from Reagan Airport (but I never heard a single plane), and a 5-minute stroll from more restaurants than we could count, ranging from Subway to Italian to a wide variety of ethnic cuisines at various price levels, as well as a 7-11 convenience store and a 24-hour CVS pharmacy. Our 2-double-bed standard room was spacious and spotless, with lots of wonderful pillows, fridge and microwave, and Ethernet cable provided. Staff were friendly yet professional, service was excellent, the breakfast area was large and pleasant with food well above average, and the pool was great. During the week it is dominated by business travellers and offers special services e.g. brown-bag breakfast at the front desk to grab on the way out to meetings or whatever; but there were other families at all times. Like everywhere in DC, weekday prices are much higher than weekends, but it was considerably less expensive than hotels closer to the National Mall or trendier areas. The yellow-line Metro gets you to the Mall in about 10 minutes, with a great view crossing the Potomac. Unlike an earlier reviewer's experience, hot chocolate was not readily available except at breakfast, so we picked up packets then to make later (the in-room coffee maker can be used just to heat water). We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Top Local Tips for Arlington

Great place to eat: Don't miss Ted's Montana Grill in Crystal City. Walking distance from the Hampton. Very tasty food and great service. They even have a kid's menu, altho it doesn't look or feel like a "family" restaurant!

Love the Metro! The easiest system you'll ever navigate.

Metro at the Crystal City location First time visitors with children, don;t be intimidated by using the Metro. The Metro staff at the Crystal City stop were extremely helpful and friendly, possibly because of this being a tourist area we found this to be the only location where a Metro employee stood as you came in by the fare machines and actually asked if anyone needed any help. They are very helpful and informative. Don't be afraid to use the Metro!!!
