“What a great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Facilities are top notch. Staff are over the top helpful and nice. What great staff! They went out of their way to accommodate our needs, and they actually cared that we were there. Staff greeted us by name once we checked in. I've been a Hilton honors member for years and i can say that this is the ONLY Hilton I've ever checked into where the idea of "loyalty" actually went BOTH ways. Our room was as requested. Big room. Bath a tad dated, but actually pretty nice. The exterior grounds are landscaped very nicely. Colorful flowers abound. There is a really nice courtyard in the back of the hotel (where the meeting space is), it even sports a peaceful fountain. Very very nice. We did not partake of the breakfast buffet, but it looked pretty good, and judging from the number of people that were using the restaurant, it must have been good. The lobby area is beautiful and decorated just right - not too heavy on wood tones or anything tacky that you usually see in hotels these days. All in all, i would recommend this hotel 100 out of 100 times and we can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: just pick one, you'll be happy

the hotel was a good value and was average , the staff was a bit " overly friendly" appearing to be disingenuous, but the hotel was clean and accommodating . the location of the hotel was very convienent to the mall and universities.. we would stay there again, the staff was the only thing that needs some direction.

2nd stay at this hotel and it was just as good as the first! Clean rooms, friendly staff, good exercise room, and great free coffee! Very close to shopping and resturants and the metro is very close. Plus the hotel has a free shuttle to and from the metro stop. Will stay there again!

This was the best Garden Inn that I have stayed at. Everything was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpfull. Louis the bar tender was very friendly and enjoyable. Very nice to have someone like him after a long day. I will stay here again when back in town on business.

We came for a family wedding. My family had used this hotel for their other daughter's wedding several years ago and it was so outstanding they decided to use it again. Inn The hotel could not have been nicer and more accommodating. We will definitely stay at this hotel when we're in the area the next time.

I had booked our stay a week in advance. Reserving was easy. When we arrived, Michael was at the front desk. He was by far the best host we have had at a hotel. He greeted us with a smile, waved to us as we left for dinner and when we came back. He even asked my daughter if she would like a cookie to take back up to our room. He went all out to make our stay great. The only complaint I have is their pool. Actaully, my wife and daughter's complaint. They said it was only 4 feet deep and maybe 15-20 long. Its not an olympic sized pool, so dont expect one. But, their saving grace is that they have a lifeguard on duty. Overall, our stay was extremely pleasant. We will be staying at the hotel again if we are ever passing through that area.

This hotel is clean and convenient to downtown Washington D.C. and Dulles International Airport. The staff was friendly and gladly gave me directions to a local attraction. The pool is quite small, even by modern business hotel standards, but it is still useful for a quick soak. The only real thing I would say in way of criticism is that the hotel only offers rooms with two doubles or one king bed. I knew I was getting two doubles when I made the reservation, but was a little surprised when no two queen rooms were even offered. The $10 breakfast was a little steep for my taste so we skipped it. Otherwise I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing a clean and well managed place to hang their hat.

Room Tip: Unload in the front and go to your room. Then park your car in the back of the hotel, take the eleva...
