This was my first stay at this hotel. My wife and I are frequent travelers to the DC area. This trip was for our semi annual ballroom dance competition. We stayed here for three nights and ate exclusively in the hotel.
The hotel has been recently remodeled and updated. It is very pleasing to the eye. The lobby is very nice and has many options for causal seating, along with many flat screen TVs. The bar area can get fairly crowded and was understaffed for the number of people in the bar on any given night, which caused some fairly long waits for service.
We had what Hilton calls an Executive King Room. Again, it is clear it has been recently remodeled and has a very modern flavor for decorations and amenities in the room. I am not sure about all rooms, but the room we had did not have a bathtub, only an oversize shower. the lighting in the bathroom was very good. The TV in the room was not functioning properly and I overheard other guests complaining about the same issue in their rooms. The sound was cutting out sporadically. My wife liked the comfort of the bed, I thought it was a bit uncomfortable, but that is a personal preference. The HVAC worked as designed and kept the room at the desired temp. Overall I thought the room was undersized for an Executive King room as compared to other hotels with the same type of room designation.
The food overall was horrible. It was always cold and not prepared well. Even in the bar area the food was bad. In addition, it is very expensive. My wife and I ordered room service breakfast one morning and the bill was $91.00 before tip. I would advise anyone to go out for food at all times.
The staff was friendly, but maid service did not show up to our room until 4:00 pm. Again, I think the hotel is generally understaffed in all areas of service.
There are better places to stay in the area that give you a better value for your money. I would recommend to the people responsible for arranging the dance competition to not use this hotel again. Last but not least, and only specific to the dancers who competed, the dance floor was improperly installed and did not meet the standards of the competitors.
The hotel shows well, but does not deliver on its services.
