I attended this plus conference center during the 2007 and 2008 ESRI Federal Users GIS Conferences. Nice place. Rating : 5 stars out of 5. Visited 01/09-11/2007. 02/20-22/2008.

Nice hotel

by TripAdvisor Member Dunn's lake lady

We stayed here end of July for 2 nights with our 3 teenage grand children. We had 2 rooms and asked for adjoining rooms but when we got there they said they had no adjoing rooms with a door in between. But it worked out okay. They have a nice hot breakfast every morning and serve something different every day. Staff very helpful and friendly. Metro and restarurants within a 2 block walk. It is in the chinatown area so had chinese dinner one night and the kids really enjoyed the meal. Best to stay in groups as the neighborhood changes within 1 block of the restaurants so stay within those 2 blocks. We made sure we were home by dark so no problem. Many families like us walking to and from the hotel to restaurants and metro. Rooms had down comforters and comfortable beds. Would stay here again.

Great Weekend Rate

by TripAdvisor Member MyAdvice

Took the family down DC for a quick weekend getaway. After checking hotel web sites, found that this property, although far from the mall, had an excellent weekend rate and provided a complimentary breakfast.

With the circulator buses, the negative of being far from the national mall disappeared. Two of the DC Circulator buses pass real close to this hotel. The DC Circulator is great. For $3 you can ride all day on any of three circulator busses. The Red circulator - which goes to the national mall can be caught about two blocks away at the Chinatown Metro Station (on 7th). The Gold circulator passes in front of the hotel and goes a couple of blocks away from the White House. (The third circulator goes around the national mall from about the capital to the washington monument - you can get to it by taking the red circulator)

There are ample places to eat on 7th street near this hotel. They range from McD's, to sit down chains like Ruth Chris and Legal Sea Foods, a few sandwich shops and some decent Chineese restaraunts.

The hotel room was very clean and nice. (The hotel looked new), The pool area was fairly deserted friday night but packed with kids on saturday evening. Getting breakfast was difficult on Saturday (around 9:15 am) because of all the people but was fine on Sunday (around 8:15am) .

When I plan another weekend trip to DC , I would definately consider staying at this hotel again.

excellent value

by TripAdvisor Member J&C,K,M,S

Our family stayed for 3 nights at the Hampton Inn in Washington and were very impressed with this hotel. It is 3 blocks walking distance from the Metro station. It is a good walk from all Washington attractions if you don't mind walking. The staff were all very helpful and courteous. The room was comfortable, beds were queen sized and very comfortable, down pillows and duvet, sheets fresh and crisp. The bathroom was large, marble and clean. Housekeeping staff provided more than enough towels for the 5 of us during our stay. The continental breakfast was the best I have ever had--it included at least 2 hot items which changed daily, some choices were scrambled eggs, french toast, belgian waffles, biscuits with country gravy, breakfast pizzas. Daily items included yogurt, fresh fruit, fruit cocktail, bagels, muffins, pastries, cereal, oatmeal, toast etc. The parking is valet and pricey at $22 per day, but even with the cost of parking this hotel was cheaper than others outside of Washington and convenient to all attractions. We would definately stay here again .

Pure Comfort

by TripAdvisor Member 4u2nvc

Excellent hotel! Traveled alone and felt safe. Close to public transportation (Crystal City stop) which was easy to use. Quiet area. WONDERFUL free breakfast. You get full selection of breakfast options. Chipotle and a few restaurants within walking distance across the (busy) street for food before 11 p.m. Friendly staff. Room was large and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Definitely will return next time around.

modern, clean and reasonable value

by TripAdvisor Member redsox367

modern well appointed rooms. Accessible to all DC attractions. only downside was the park across the road with residents homeless folk. Best to take a cab back at nite otherwise well worth visting

Good location, great for access to Convention Center

by TripAdvisor Member DC_tourists

We stayed here in late September for a convention. The 2 blocks to the Convention Center was great - saved time riding Convention Center busses. It was about 3 blocks to restaurant choices and the walk was fine in the daylight. We used bus transportation in the night as we toured. It was nicer than I expected and I would recommend it, especially with the breakfast on-site.

Good location

by TripAdvisor Member gretaguk

Good hotel, and clean room. Room could have been a little bit better in terms of how it smelt, but wasn't a downside that would stop me going there. Room is modern, and is close to convention center, a bus to major attractions.

We stopped at this hotel at the weekend, when DC is traditionally meant to be quiet. This hotel was buzzing, and we could not actually find anywhere to sit for their complimentary breakfast. (Breakfast - on plastic plates / cups). However its free / included in the cost of your stay.

Complimentary drinks throughout the day, from the main lobby, however it tastes so awful you cannot drink it. Go elsewhere.

This hotel is still in the dark ages in terms of net connection: you need to use a lead (although long, makes it a bit inconvenient in your room). Where is the wifi?

Despite my points above, I would stop at this hotel again.

Great stay at the Hampton Inn Convention Center

by TripAdvisor Member isssa

A friend and I stayed at the hampton inn convention center this past august. I was a bit apprehensive at first because I was looking for something closer to the National Mall, but the great rate advertised ($79/night) and the free complimentary breakafast won me over. This hotel is very convenient to the Metro (gallery place-chinatown stop 3 blocks away) and If you don't mind a little excercise a nice walking distance to the major D.C. attractions. I think it took me about maybe 20 min to walk to the National Mall via 7th street. The room was clean and furnishings seemed very new and modern. It had two large comfortable queen size beds, microwave, and mine refrigerator. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. We ended up arriving early several hrs before the 4pm check in and they gave us no problem getting our room early. The complimentary breakfast was pretty good and offered a good selection of cold and hot items. If you walk along 7th street there are plenty of restaurants and shops to choose from. I've read some other reviews and see some folks are concerned about some of the homeless folk in that little park across the street. In my opinion they were actually pretty harmless bumbs (very friendly I might add cause they always addressed me with good mornings and hello's LOL). I felt very safe. Overall I had a very positive experience and would love to stay there again

Good Hotel - Great Value

by TripAdvisor Member MBenz

Everything is true. The hotel staff was very nice and friendly. The lobby is pretty basic but is pleasant with a nice fish tank. My room was a good size and the bed was terrific. The bathrooms are particularly large. The breakfast buffet was pretty good one day and serviceable the next.

The hotel is a bit on the edge of "civilization" but just a block over on 7th street is an good selection of restaurants. You can also get to the Mall quickly by using the north south Circulator bus that runs up and down 7th. Georgetown is a short ride away on the northern loop Circulator. Just watch out as the last bus leaves Georgetown at 9:00pm.

I'd stay in this hotel again and have no problem recommending it. On top of everything, it is a great deal.

Commuting to Capitol Building

by renemontalbo

im checked in at the Best Western Hotel Capital Beltway in Landham MD, how do i commute to the Capitol Building in Washington DC... i know how to get to Union Station but that seems to be the wrong place to start off towards the Capitol building since its a long walk...
Can anybody help me please..... any locals out there? thanks

Re: Commuting to Capitol Building

by TexasDave

Union Station really isn't a very long walk, but some of it is uphill. You want to shoot for Capitol South and the easiest way would be to stay on the Red train until Metro Center, change to the Blue Lind, direction Largo Town Center, which will bring you to the Capitol South stop.

Re: Commuting to Capitol Building

by mccalpin

I wouldn't have thought that it was a long walk at all...in looking at the map to refresh my memory, it's only about 600-900 meters or a third to a half a mile, a straight shot down Delaware Avenue. Of course, that's to the northern part of the complex; the trip might be much longer depending on where you enter. Same with Capitol South - it's 200 meters from here to the southern part of the complex but twice as far to the northern part of the complex. Given that you can walk 600-900 meters in 10 or so minutes, I question whether trying to take the Metro to get closer is really worth it timewise...you might try it both ways and see how you like it, but I bet on nice days, you'd rather walk ;-)

by xymmot

It's not a long walk to the Capitol, maybe three football fields?? from the Union Station. It's as close as yu may get besides someone dropping you off at the steps where yu still have to walk a football field. (I'm kind of local) Walked up though steps too.

Re: Commuting to Capitol Building

by xymmot

Either way if you come out the metro, i is still a walk. Are you handicap? or have disabilities? if so there are other methods. I will monitor the reply if I can help you.

It can be a nice walk especially now that Spring is in the air. I've walked this area many times before, and it's an enjoyable activity if you like to walk (or power walk) like me. If you don't like walking around too much, riding the Metro may be your best option.

From your base hotel in Lanham, MD where you will have access to the New Carrollton Metro Stop on the ORANGE LINE, the 6th Metro stop will be Stadium-Armory from where you will need to be on the BLUE LINE (towards Franconia-Springfield). From there, the 3rd stop will be Capitol South. This, IMHO, is the best/shortest way to get to your desired destination.

Good Luck & Enjoy Spring in DC!

Re: Commuting to Capitol Building

by renemontalbo

Thanks for the replies guys...Capitol South it is then...FYI i have kids with me who would rather take a taxi....hahahhahha.... thanks again..

Re: Commuting to Capitol Building

by risse73

No need to take a taxi. It's crazy right now in the DC area with the Cherry Blossom spectacle in full swing. There are lots of tourists & locals congregating around the area. It's really best to take the Metro for DC-related travel at this time.

Enjoy The Capitol & Cherry Blossoms!
