“Hilton Mark Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The hotel has many positives but it is located as though remote. The Hotel staff are generally very nice but the concierge was not a service persons staffed group. On the weekend the hotel restaurant mid afternoon was the same way maybe why very few people were there you almost had to raise your hand and whistle to be acknowledged.

It is difficult to find anything wrong with this Hilton. Big clean rooms, multiple quick elevators, large comfortable beds with lots of pillows, all the amenities are there, but, of course, the prices are higher. The fees and taxes on a $13.00 room service breakfast were over $9.00. The location is excellent, near the Metro and Amtrak and actually in (barely) Old Town. Paying to park at a hotel is just wrong to me, but it's everywhere, so I guess I can't fault them. It will probably always be wrong to me. This is a fine place to stay. I enjoyed it and certainly paid for the enjoyment.

The lobby and other public space is very attractive. Were were in the Retreat Center which is a bit remote from the main building. We had asked for a microwave and they upgraded us to the Retreat room. The room was very large and well appointed with a terrace. The bath has a bidet and an Jacuzzi. We had a problem with the refrigerator. It was no temp controls and required a maintenance person to turn it on and set the temp. We later found that he set it so low it froze our food. The heat/ac was never dealt with. The heat/ac unit simply did not respond to the thermostat and it was never fixed.

While we liked the hotel I would advise against the Retreat Center. It is so remote that the maids come after 4:00 and I suspect that the rooms do not get the attention that the other rooms in the hotel do. We were there for 3 night and the room was never vacuumed.

Room Tip: Avoid the retreat Center

We've stayed here several times for business location requirements. Bathroom tile needs good cleaning and rooms showing wear. Gym adequate wth treadmill. Has small pool. Not near local metro. Take free Hilton shuttle to Pentagon City and catch metro transit at that location. Also free pick up/drop off at Reagan airport. Hotel restaurants only fair. Walk around block to Clyde's for fairly good food but not cheap. Suggest a cab (approx $16.50 each way) to Alexandria Old Town for terrific restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for the "older" building with a view of the pond. Caution, it's a long walk to th...

Who wants to drive around DC?This Hilton lives up to the brand. The main purpose of this trip was to attend a concert at Kennedy Center. Hilton provided airport pickup and a shuttle to and from the Pentagon City metro stop. From there all of DC is at your
disposal. Additionally, this Hilton is directly across the street from a city bus depot center.

I absolutely loved it here! So close to all big tourist attractions. Literally 15-20 minute ride into Washington. T station across the street. So many restaurants and stores nearby. The bar in the hotel had good cheap drinks! The bed was heaven, I slept like a baby! Bathroom very clean and good size. There were Peter Thomas Roth products (top brand line sold at sephora) in the bathroom! Housekeeping was always nice enough to restock daily. Wet bar area with nice fridge, huge tv. Check in and out smooth and easy! Heads up on parking through, $25.25 a night, a bit high for such small tight spaces and no in and out privilege. I'm glad to have read previous reviews and would definitely stay here again! Highly recommend it!
