From the moment we checked into this HIE DC we felt the desire for customer satisfaction coming from the management and staff.
We found the accommodations roomy, modern, comfortable and clean, also made even better by the non-smoking policy throughout the hotel. A great hot and cold buffet, kept refreshed by excellent staff, is served in the morning and is one of the best complimentary breakfasts I have ever eaten. Coffee is always available, and there is even an area with snacks, frozen meals, (microwave & fridge in some rooms) ice cream and drinks at very fair prices. The hotel has an attractive and comfortable lobby with areas for talking, intimate business conferencing, a computer room, large TV with seating and tables.
Driving in DC is awful, not to mention parking. Just pay the nominal daily rate, leave your car behind and opt for the free shuttle provided in the morning and late afternoon thru 10PM. (Just make sure you know exactly where at Union Station the van picks up.) In line with their service policy, just let the front desk know you are interested in using the shuttle and they will let you know if an ‘unscheduled’ shuttle is going to Union Station. Once there, the Metro line is easy, clean and affordable and Union Station has great shopping indoors and walking outside…and you can get to any train connection or bus to see any of the sites and museums. (We just loved the Smithsonian American History Museum and being on the jury for the trial of America's Traitor)
There is also plenty to do while in the hotel. The gym is good, the indoor pool warm and you can get to meet people staying from all over the world. During the breakfast buffets, we asked others to join our table when most tables were busy. It gave my husband and I an opportunity to share some good ole American hospitality with a German couple and two UK friends who were traveling together. The atmosphere is friendly and it is easy to strike up conversations. When in DC, this is where we will only stay. HIE DC is not a place that takes advantage of its guests…it is one that works hard to keep its ‘Hospitality Promise.’
