I stayed a couple of nights on business in the neighborhood. The hotel is a bit unconventional for a Hilton as it has practically no lobby. Instead, it opens onto the mall right around the Metro exit - in fact you don't even need to step out from under the roof to get between the two. This makes it very convenient - the Metro is one of the better subway systems in the US. The stop is a bit out on the orange line from the center of DC but you sort of make up for that by how little time you spend walking between your room and the station.
The room was comfortable and quiet. Not much of a view at all. Staff were quite friendly, both front desk and cleaning staff, who happily gave me extra tea and cream for my room coffee maker.
There's lots of restaurants in the area, including a food court in the mall and there's a 7/11 across the street as well
Why do hotels like this charge for Internet access? It seems so petty. Ironically, the cheaper the hotel, the more likely it is to include Internet.
