We got this hotel for $85 a night on priceline and thought we got an AWESOME deal so we certainly weren't complaining when things weren't perfect! But I'll share the good and not so good anyway! I rated the value as very good but that's only a reflection on what we paid!
GOOD: Dupont Circle and the Metro is about a 15 minute walk away. So are lots of great restaurants! We had the best Thai food just down the street. Sorry...can't remember the name but it was on Connecticut Ave, down a few blocks from the hotel and across the street.
When we arrived at the hotel we were told how to get to the visitor parking lot by the valet and though it seems as if you are going way out of your way this Hilton is pretty large and you are actually just heading to the other side of the building. Parking is $35.00 a night! WOWZA!! BUT what we paid on Priceline...I wasn't complaining!
We booked the Red Top Tour Bus the second morning for $45.00 a person. Wish we would have booked it for the first day because for 48 hours...it's only $10 more per person! The metro is a bit confusing (prime time and non prime time fairs) so having the tour bus right outside our door was awesome! Downside is it says 24 or 48 hours but its actually on 9am-6pm and you pay extra for the evening tour. If you are somewhere after 6pm, plan on taking the metro. Tour bus drops you right back at the hotel on the (yellow?) route! Saves on the feet!
We stayed on the 4th floor and our room was a long walk from the elevator. Room was decent. Black mold or discolouring in between the tiles in the bathroom. Gross!
View was good!
Cleaning staff gave us fresh towels and replenished our soap and shampoo. I however don't think the sheets were changed in the 3 nights we stayed.
NOT SO GOOD: no free WIFI in the rooms? What's up with that?? I've never not had free WIFI in my hotel room. Planning a scheduled video chat with the kids...we proceeded to do this in the lobby! OH WELL!! There are 4 computers in the lobby you can use and lots of tables to set up your own laptop.
Did I say the parking is $35.00 a day?? WOWZA AGAIN!!
Upon checking in, we were asked if we'd like a wake up call and we said yes...at 8:00am. Never had one! Thankfully we woke up around that time the first morning! The next night, we set the alarm!
The bathroom door had a window in it. Not one you can see through but there's a safety light in the bathroom that will not turn off and it would shine through the door window. I like pitch black to sleep so this bothered me. The air conditioner is a bit loud!
