“Very Pleased”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We stayed here for four very cold January nights and had a very pleasant stay. Check in was very easy, all the staff were polite and extremely helpful.

We had a troublesome aircon unit in the room on the first night which disrupted our sleep slightly. I complained to reception the following morning, we were relocated without any fuss and the previous nights meals and drinks wiped off the bill.

It's a handy location, meals were great, has it's own bit of history and is everything you'd expect from a Hilton.

Strongly recommended.

I had stayed several times at this hotel before and for this or other reason, always there was something that made me feel as another customer that would be there no matter what. This time it was different. Check-in process, room appearance, elevators speed acceptable even with a several hundred people conference on site. In general a much smoother stay.
Location is good for metro access, dinner opportunities, a look at the neighborhood. Restaurant and bar alternatives are not the best nor the most inexpensive. However, for some it may be unbelievable but at the beer/sports bar/restaurant of a this clearly a business hotel, a dinner including a couple of craft options and a hamburger, if at the expensive side as expected, were of great taste and quality.
Surely, on a business trip I would consider this hotel, and depending on the offers provided the specific dates, I also consider it for a leisure visit to this very nice city.

We stayed here for a conference. The staff (as with most Hiltons in my experience) were terrific -- very friendly, very helpful, very accommodating -- especialy the concierge and the evening doorman. Our room was clean and comfortable with nice modern furnishings and plenty of space for the 2 of us. The only complaint would be that the walls aren't very soundproof. We were able to hear our neighbors on both sides. Luckily, neither party was too loud late into the night. (They probably didn't enjoy hearing us either!)

The hotel is nicely situated, just a 3- or 4-block walk to the Dupont Circle Metro station. The one evening we walked home from the White House (~1.5 miles). Great food up Connecticut. Be sure to stop in at Bistro du Coin. Lovely atmosphere. Delicious meal.

On the day we arrived, I had our window open a little (nice touch btw!) and could hear dogs barking. I looked out and saw that the fenced-in hotel pool area was filled with dogs and their owners, so we went down there. Apparently, once the hotel closes the pool for the season, they open it up one weekend as a sort of pop-up dog park. What a nice thing for Hilton to do for their neighbors! Everyone was laughing and having fun as the dogs ran amok. It was truly a great welcome to Washington!

I stayed here for a meeting, and it met my needs. I admit I was annoyed about being nickel-and-dimed for things like WiFi in the room or gym access. Some staff were very friendly (housekeeping) while others seemed bent on ignoring me even though it wasn't busy (restaurant, doormen). All in all, I feel everything was adequate, but I wouldn't spend my hard-earned money or free time on a vacation here.

My family has gone here several times because we like this hotel. It's a lovely residential area with many choice restaurants nearby. City center and all that Washington has to offer is within easy access. It's large, size wise, but we've never had a problem making a reservation. They're very busy and bustling all the time. Even so, the staff is attentive, and tries to make your stay as comfortable & fulling as possible. Restaurants within the hotel are nice with very good food, albeit a bit pricey. My only issue is with the price of parking and you have no choice in that matter - it's where you have to park your car! It's convenient because you can take the elevators right up to your floor, bypassing the lobby if you want, but the price continues to increase each time we visit.

Room Tip: High floors have nice views

We stayed here for several night to explore the city. Good quality hotel with friendly, helpfull staff and clean rooms. Good value for money, comfortable beds and normally equipped bathroom. Great French restaurant nearby. Taxis are nearby constantly so you can travel without any delays. Nice hotel in a good area.

Gigantic hotel, located 10 min from Dupont Circle up a hill. The property is gigantic and a bit older but well kept, and the rooms are consequently huge. Others have indicated that it was noisy; I found it to be absolutely quiet, even too quiet. The room wasn't made one day for unclear reasons, got a prompt turnover and a gift certificate for the downstairs restaurant comped. Left my phone charger here by accident, and had it mailed to Canada pro bono. Service was top notch.
