While I enjoyed my well-appointed & decorated room , there were some serious issues. As a HHonors member, I used points for my stay. The room I booked stated it came with a view and even states on their website that they have rooms with a view. I arrived around midnight, the agent Charles, who had on house shoes, had... More

They overbook on their own website and then i was diverted to stay at courtyard for one day and come back next day.... terrible management.... They should be mre professional about this. The front desk is poorly managed and show no respect to customers.

Just checked into this DC hotel. I'm happy that it has fridge and microwave in room, plus (tiny) indoor pool...but, oh my, the bed! Wish I had known that it is so hard. So uncomfortable, in fact, that I immediately logged into my complimentary wireless access to let this be known. I am actually in the bed now, and not... More

Thank you for the review. We use the mandated Hilton Garden Inn sleep system beds in all of our king bedrooms. I'm not sure if you brought it to our attention that you were unable to use the adjustable dials, but I am sorry that this was the case, as the staff does check the dials when cleaning. Thank you...

We found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable. The room was spacious with comfortable furnishings. The front desk staff was very pleasant and accommodating. There is no self-park so the only option is the valet parking. The only odd item is for families with young children, the bathroom light switch is located outside of the bathroom and the... More

I often use trip advisor when deciding the best places to stay in a city I'm unfamiliar with, but I hardly ever write reviews. This property is certainly worthy of a review!!

My wife and I stayed here in July for 3 nights for some sightseeing and to catch a few Nationals games. This hotel is in a great location, and within walking distance from Union Station.

Stayed her in April 2012. Loved the convenience of having the metro one block away. This was great for saving your feet before a long day of walking.

If you are OK using the Metro to get around and don't care about a view, this is a great choice. One block from NOMA Metro station and one stop to Union Station. We scored a room rate of $109 on hotels.com. Valet parking was $30. New building, bright, crisp clean rooms. Friendly helpful staff is a big plus. Pool... More
