This hotel is in a great location, 2 blocks from the White House and walking distance to many sights. The staff were professional and helpful. Would definitely go back.

Parking at the hotel (valet only) is very expensive though. There are much cheaper options just 2 blocks away.

Stayed here for business. I had no choice on this one but am often in area. Often stay at other hotels but had last minute booking problems. One employee was honestly very nice. A young lady, I believe, every other person I encountered behaved as though it was the worst experience ever to even smile. Perhaps it was because of holidays. I had the best outlook possible and ended up spending most of my time at another hotel with friends who were visiting at same time. They stopped by and had similar experience. Staff, if you have to work holidays, don't take it out on clientele.

I stayed here for a quick overnight business trip. As a Hilton Honors member the gym was free. The gym is AMAZING! I think the price to use it is $10-$15. I don't know if I would pay that, but FREE was awesome. The gym is fully equipped and they have nice ice cold face towels infused with basil and herbs. Such a nice touch after a hard day and workout. The hotel rooms are small, but nicely updated. Room service was excellent. Hotel has an older musty smell.....as most old hotels do. If you are a history buff and enjoy old architecture then this hotel would be fun. Room was clean, no view though :( Location is great. Two blocks from the White House. I would stay here again if I needed to, but not my first choice.

This is a handy place to stay in the DC area, especially if you are sight-seeing in the White House/Smithsonian/Mall areas. Good eateries close by and a nice walk to just about anything you want to see. The staff is accommodating and helpful.

We had a nice couple day vacation with our little ones. The service was nice and the location was especially excellent. It was within walking distance to so many things....a few blocks to the White House and several other museums. The hotel staff was great and very friendly. The smell on our floor was a little off putting but otherwise, all was good. The Executive Lounge staff were excellent and made my a.m. and p.m. experience especially enjoyable! Overall good stay!

Excellent location, superb service and wonderful food food! The hotel is located within walking distance to restaurants and attractions. The staff is pleasant, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The corner room was spacious and very clean. The decor of the room could use some updating, but all in all, a great stay.
