“A nicely located, efficient DC hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

I stayed two nights in late June 2013 on business (office right around the corner). Late check in was efficient, friendly staff, and room was clean and well appointed. Prices are very dear to this Midwestern traveler, but on par with what DC seems to cost in summer. I usually qualify for the government rate so the sticker shock (for whomever paid my bill) was an eye opener. I was assigned an awful room (inner 'court yard' overlooking cooking vents that created a white noise I could fall asleep to. Good news was I could n't hear when the

I travel to DC quite a bit. THe Hilton Garden Inn in DC is one of the first hotels that has improved drastically over the years. Service was efficient, friendly, and responsive. The rooms are decent-sized and the facilities very nice. The breakfast buffet is extensive and the quality high. Super location and smiling staff.

I stay at this Hilton when travelling for work. It's a good location, walking distance to the business district and the monuments, white house. Clean, very friendly staff, and warm cookies. The gym is underground so a little dreary but other than that it's pretty nice.

This hotel is a good value in very pricey Washington DC. The location is excellent. As Hilton Honors Diamond members, we were given vouchers for breakfast and water bottles. Breakfast was very good. Two of us used the fitness center which could be better maintained (one treadmill squeaked, another had a nonworking TV), but met our needs.

Room Tip: We ended up with an accessible room. That type of room may be a little larger. It did feel spaciou...

We were extremely comfortable at the Hilton Garden Hotel. The hotel has large, comfortable rooms and beds. Our room on a high floor at the back of the hotel was peaceful and quiet and we were able to have a peaceful nights sleep after our long days walking around the Smithsonian Museums. It is close to restaurants, shops, trolley bus stops and the Smithsonian museums. Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and free coffee, tea & beverage in the lobby every morning was an excellent gesture. Excellent value for such a convenient hotel. There is a gym and a small pool, but as the weather was very hot the pool was often full of small children. Laundry facilities were also available. We found this hotel excellent value for money,

You cannot beat this hotel for the location, comfort, and price. I was trying to decide between this hotel and the Capital Hilton but glad I picked this one as I think it is better located to the metro as well as DC sites. Plus, it has free wifi!!

So, as others have stated, it is right across the street from the metro to the airport and walking distance to the White House as well as the Smithsonian. It is also a block away from the buses that take you to Georgetown, the zoo, Union Station, etc for $1.00, if you like to view DC above ground (it is a very nice bus).

The rooms were great, and the beds were comfortable. They have all the amenities and it doesn't feel like a category below regular Hiltons (in contrast to Sheraton v. Four Points Sheraton). In fact, they are better because you get free wifi!

I would definitely stay here again.

Is across the road from the subway, walking distance to most of the monuments and landmarks. The staff are very courteous and efficient. I was in a room with two doubles and the bed was a little hard for my liking, but the king bed rooms have adjustable beds I believe. I recommend the hotel. Nice shower with adjustable head and a good sized desk in the room.
