Title says it all. I will say, one of the guest services professionals, Theresa Thomas, Is outstanding: friendly courteous, professional and always willing to go out of her way to accommodate guests (Me). This was my third visit to the property. Titou in Food and Beverage is also outstanding. Other front desk people just did not exhibit zest or enthusiasm... More

We had a flying visit and stayed here right in town. A short walk to the White House and the Forest Gump attractions. All shown in the movie. Easy to get around and good location. Rooms and the bed were well appointed and comfortable. The concierge was helpful. I felt that the desk staff could be a little more helpful.... More

Recently stayed for 3 nights, excellent deal on trivago. Check in staff lovely. Location great for seeing the sights. Individual climate control in rooms. Could occasionally hear guests in next room but was not a bother. Complimentary water bottles do not get replenished.

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend I'm June. I was pleased with the friendly staff and cleanliness. The hotel is close to the monuments and museums, walkable. You have to valet your car which is pretty expensive, check street parking before valeting, some days are free.

The experience at the hotel was so pedestrian, from attached floorboards in the room, room door full of dents, only two towels offered per room, limited selections dinner menu offering at the lobby restaurant, basic looking lobby, poor internet service - if the hotel did not have the Hilton flag on it, I would have not known it was a...

This hotel centrally located if you would like to walk around the White House. There are nice restaurants and coffee shops around. People at the hotel are friendly but room furnitures are a bit old. There is free internet access in the lobby

The first night, there was a teenage party next door. We had to call the security twice in the middle of the night. We asked to switch room the next morning. The lady at the front desk assured us that they were cleaning a different room for us & would be ready by the time we came back at night.... More

The hotel is 5 minutes walking from the White House, it is unvaluable. It is easy to walk to the White House, then to the Memorial, and to the Potomac river, where you can sip a beer or eat food in the restaurants close to the river. The level of the room is medium, but the personnel is very kind.... More

We had a few small issues, but the customer service was excellent and they took care of the situation immediately! We had a fun time in DC and the location was great. I would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed here, off and on, for 25 years. Not been here in a while. Checked in and found out the room was not what I reserved. Called front desk. They kept putting me on hold and bringing in someone new. Got tired of that game and went down to the front desk. Finally got me the right room.... More
