Full disclosure, we are loyal Hilton members and selected this hotel because it was the best Hilton brand hotel in the area.
The best thing going for this Hilton is the location. Easy metro access, sandwiched between Wilson Ave and Fairfax which are Ballstons primary drags for food and fun. Other than that it is a pretty standard, if not a little run down Hilton property.
Upon arrival, the front desk staff was helpful and explained all the hotels amenities and services. The front desk staff was attentive through our stay. The executive lounge was closed and they made up for it by comping us breakfast at their on site restaurant Dan and Brads. The restaurant had terrible service and the food is over priced, try one of the surrounding restaurants for a meal out.
The room was a standard, no frills room with a safe and minibar. The bathrooms were pretty small, but were clean. The views are nothing to write home about, and the whole property just felt dated and mediocre. We had wifi access and parking both for a fee. Overall, not the best hotel in the DC metro area, but for the price and location it is hard to beat.
