“Comfy, BUT Terrible Conservation”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I am sitting in this hotel right now, and it would be so easy to give 4 stars or so to, but I'm so disappointed in their efforts to conserve and preserve as some of their little, in-room fliers say they are into. 1) They are like many hotels that say that if you leave your towels on a hook and you are staying multiple nights, they will not wash your once used towels. We put out towels on hooks this morning like good little conservationists, and our towels were taken away and replaced with new ones on the first night. 2) Cups! Not only do they not put reusable mugs and glasses in the room, they have think, glossy paper cups WRAPPED in plastic! How can we conserve if we are creating that much waste with one time use cups. Really? Plastic wrapped cups.

Needless to say, I've overly disappointed in this company right now. I know I may be one of the few that pay attention to these details, but this company is large enough to make a greater impact for environmental good than this.

This hotel has the best location in DC. Close to the airport and close to shopping and restaurants. Great shuttle service within two miles of hotel. For a business trip or group travel this is the best place to stay. Staff and service second to none.

The Hilton Garden made checking in and out incredibly simple. I had a king room for two nights and the room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel is situated in a really good area for foot traffic in Shirlington Village which is nice as well.

I have severe OCD, so it's hard for me to find a place to stay that is up to my standards, but this place was great! The bathroom was spotless and the linens were crisp and clean. The coffee machine was the single-serving, keurig type and came with wrapped cups. I couldn't find a single thing to complain about.

Getting into Washington and back is very easy. The shuttle to the metro stop leaves every hour and takes just around ten minutes, and then it's only a few stops to get to tourist attractions. When you're ready to return, you call the hotel and they come right away to pick you up. All of the employees I encountered were very friendly and the lobby has fruity water and great oatmeal cookies all day, plus tea and coffee sometimes.

The hotel is also in a good location. Parking is across the street in a parking garage, but free. Also across the street is a grocery store, which is nice because our room had a microwave and mini-fridge. Right next to the hotel is a restaurant called Busboys and Poets, that was very good, and next to that is a Johnny Rockets. There are all kinds of restaurants, shops, and even a movie theater within walking distance to the hotel.

Travelers to the Washington DC area can always stay in the well known neighborhoods of Crystal City, Old Town Alexandria, Bethesda, etc, however I highly recommend giving this Hilton property and the neighborhood of Shirlington a chance. A modern hotel with all the amenities a business or lea sure traveler needs, tucked away in a "foodie" and outdoor lover's heaven. Great local restaurants, live stage theater, and recreation trails all within walking distance. You literally can park your car upon arrival and not have to drive it for days...there is that much to do!

I stay in a lot of Hotels, especially HGI's because I think they are best value. The HGI Shirlington is the nicest HGI I have stayed in. It has resort quality services and personell. It is very convenient to both DC and VA, and provides much more competitive rates.

Past Trip Advisor reviews were accurate. Excellent location, excellent restaurants on Campbell, cool neighborhood, shuttle to metro was efficient, excellent breakfast and customer pleasing breakfast staff, would recommend and if back to Wash.D.C. will stay at this hotel.
