“Nice hotel close to attractions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

I made a three day trip to DC. I checked Trip Advisor for hotel recommendations. This hotel is clean and comfortable. They serve a wonderful complimentary breakfast for guests. It is close by the main attractions of DC and right across the street from the Metro train station which was great. The only down side was it was expensive and the dinner at the hotel restaurant was just ok

Amazingly close to white house. Close to casual spots to pick up some food. Near park (filled with homeless folks). Directly across street from metro. Wow! Water and apples in lobby in morning. Ice/lemon water in afternoon. Cookies in lobby late afternoon. Coffee/tea cocoa in lobby in morning and evening. All very nice perks. The bummer--Ordered a cocktail at 3:30 at bar and paid 5.50. Wow, good deal. Thought I needed another and next one was $9.08. What's up with that? Supposed to be happy hour prices too. Didn't say anything just but was disappointed. I lilke to stay in different hotels every time I come to DC but this location is so great for mall/white house and metro I'm not sure I can leave it.

Room Tip: We were in a room that had a close up view of the building next door. It was directly next to the e...

My husband and I went for his business trip but I did sightseeing and relaxing. This was a wonderful hotel!! Clean, large room, comfortable bed and great staff, especially Eddie. The location was great. I walked to the white house, the national mall, the smithsonian. The breakfast was wonderful. If you're paying regular hotel rate, ask about their free breakfast option. And one more thing we have to add. They have an in room safe. I put my diamond earrings, cash and iPad in there before going out. Only thing I'd that I forgot to lock it!! Wen I returned, the safe was unlocked and open as I had left it, and every dollar and piece of jewelry was there!! So kudos to a very, very honest housekeeping staff. Only issue was that our airport wasn't near the metro or else we would have been able to get to the hotel in minutes. Make sure you book your flight to Reagan national. There are no metro trains or buses from Dulles.

We appreciate the feedback and your kind words. I would also recommend Reagan National airport as it is a little easier to get the hotel and Dulles is a little ways from the city.

Thank you once again for the review and we hope to see you again!

We went to DC for the cherry blossoms and got a great deal only a few days ahead. The hotel was only a few blocks from the White House and a nice walk, maybe a mile, to the monuments. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was spacious and the breakfast buffet was nice (extra cost). The only complaint we had was the cost of parking. Would definitely go back.

I cannot say enough about how amazing the staff was. I have stayed in Ritz and many other fancy hotels, and the staff here is just as good if not better.

I am a Hilton Platinum Honors member and stay at Hilton properties all over the US. This has nice size rooms and adjustable mattresses for comfort, a restaurant and very active bar.

The location is a few blocks from the White House so it is great for business or sight seeing-I was there to do a little of both. It was also close to some good restaurants.

It was very crowded when I was there and the staff handled it well. I would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor if you want a view of the street-like most urban streets, it can be a little no...

This hotel resides at an excellent location if you plan to tour DC. It's very bright, clean, modern, well kept and the staff are very professional and friendly.

The only critique I would have is that my room, on the 3rd floor, was near the corner of 14th and H Street which resulted in significant street noise. Motorcycles, honking cabs and delivery trucks late into the evening. If you`re a light sleeper, I would suggest requesting a room away from the corner.

Otherwise, I would easily recommend this hotel and would stay there again the next time I visit DC.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the 14th and H St. corner in order to avoid street noise.
