“Hinckley Hilton”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Up to standard for business hotel in DC. Interesting that this is where Reagan got shot. History in DC continues. Annoying that rather than putting the receipt under my door (like every other hotel) they left me this long and complicated message at 6:30 AM about sustainability and how to use my TV for checkout. Big hotel, long walks from elevator to room.

“Hinckley Hilton” is not something everyone knows about our hotel, you are correct in saying history is everywhere in DC.

We are happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to have the opportunity to make your next stay a GREAT ONE!

Keep waiting for the hammer to drop, for someone to fumble the ball but... It Just Keeps Getting Better! Christain Ferguson at the front desk, WOW OUTSTANDING check in.
After being stuck in traffic all day and taking twice as long to get there as usual my wife and kids were done. I was a bit tense as well. That all went away after 5 minutes with Christian.
The second Christian was our server at Mclellens inside the hotel. Also provided excellent service. The hotel is always well kept... it is the level of service that the staff provides to there customers that make the difference. I am in DC all the time but when I have a chance to bring my family they always request the Washington DC Hilton. Cant say the same when we go to other Hotels in other cities only the DC Hilton. Try it you'll never stay anywhere else in DC.

We stayed here for two nights in August 2013 at the end of our tourist trip to the US. The hotel is located in a nice neighborhood near the Dupont Circle with plenty of bars and restaurants. The main areas of the hotel are very clean. We had two full beds in a quite clean room on 6th floor with a great view over DC. Large hotel with restaurants/bars, pool, fitness center and a big conference center. Unfortunately, wi-fi is charged extra and parking in the garage is quite expensive. But due to comfort the latter was worth it, although there is public parking available in the streets near the hotel. Overall a very comfortable stay. It is a 35 min drive to Dulles International Airport. Make sure to use the lanes for airport traffic on the highway, so you do not have to pay toll.

Went for a conference. Good location for tourist stuff too. We caught the trolley & the big-bus right at the hotel. We could easily walk down Connecticut avenue to restaurants & the metro at DuPont circle. Restaurants at the hotel were pricey but food was good. Beds were comfy, even if only doubles.

We stayed here for a meeting, and nice quite neighborhood, with plenty to eat and drink just down the street. A large hotel, with plenty of rooms, great sports pub in the first level and three restaurants in total off the very large main lobby. Rooms were nice, well kept. Accessible via the metro, so pretty convenient.

Room Tip: It's a very large facility, and the hallways are long, so you could end up half a block from the...

We stayed here for 3 nights in August on tourist trip to Washington The hotel is of a good standard and the rooms well furnished. My only reason for not scoring this higher is the fact that it a busy business and conference hotel and if your main reason for being in Washington is as a tourist you may be better closer to the Metro or downtown. However if you can get a good room rate that may compensate for the location.

Washington DC is a wonderful place to tour, as a resident I still find myself re-visiting all the major sites and finding ones I didn’t know existed.

While we are busy through the year with conferences and business travelers, we do take pride in our helpful concierge and family oriented restaurant and pool areas. We hope you are able to visit again and give us another chance to show that we are the number one choice of all travelers, business, leisure, and local residents just needing a break for the weekend.

We finished our USA stay in WDC and stayed at the Hilton.
The hotel is stylish, decorated well and looks lovely from outside and in. The check-in was fast, polite and we were in our room in no time.
Room was lovely, on the third floor, incredibly clean and both room and en-suite in excellent condition. The air con was very efficient......brrr but easily controlled.
We ate in the bar in the hotel, service and food outstanding.
A great hotel in the middle of a wonderful city, would highly recommend and I will be back. Thank you Hilton for a great stay and warm welcome.
