Convenient to White House and Metro. Easy to get Uber or cab. Hotel dining room is just plain sad. Chairs in dire need of replacement. Material all worn and dirty. Breakfast is adequate but pricey. McDonalds is around the corner if you have a family and don’t want to spend $16.00 a day each for breakfast buffet. Staff is nice. Must use valet parking that cost average around $60 a day with the tax added. Tip not included. Pool is nice, not as big as it looks in the website photo. It’s clean but area needs attention. For a Hilton hotel. I expected better.

Hotel's Favorite
Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend with extended family. The hotel is located close to White House, and most of the monuments/attractions are within a 20-30min walk. Our rooms were clean and fairly spacious (we had suites) and looked like they had been renovated fairly recently. View from one of the rooms certainly wasn't the greatest (looked out onto other rooms), but wasn't a big deal to us, as we weren't there very much. The entire hotel actually looked nice and clean. There was a nice bar area on-site, as well as a restaurant for breakfast and dinner. What made this stay so nice, however, was the staff. I especially have to give a big shout out to George, the food and beverage manager, who not only was very friendly but also also very helpful. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and also about any events that were taking place, road closings, delays, etc. He took the time whenever he saw us to ask how we were doing, what our plans were, how he could help, etc. We would stay here again purely based on the wonderful experience we had dealing with George. All in all a great stay in a nice location.

Conveniently located directly across the street from McPherson Square Metro, this property is easy walking distance to the Mall and is surrounded by good and great eating establishments. We enjoyed a very nice breakfast buffet with made to order omelettes and very attentive staff The property shows its age despite recent upgrades Management responded quickly to our shower issue and Lekhamath completed repairs quickly and with such care that it was almost impossible to see the original damage. This being DC, one is wise to request a room that does not face the street unless sirens help you sleep at night.
