“very, very nice Hilton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Stayed here one night as a mom/dad get-away. We got a king room for $94 a night with the AAA rate. Owing to my HHonors status, we were upgraded to a balcony King with free wifi. Thank you to the front desk!

I've lived in the DC area for about 20 years, but have never stayed at this place (in fact we lived in an apartment complex down the road from it for three years). staying here was a nice treat as our room affored us about a 120 degree view from Arlington to Alexandria (DC could be seen in the distance).

The room has been fully remodeled and was well decorated; nice wall paperings; mini bar area; desk area was all new and refreshed. Bathroom was a tad bit small, but unlike many other hotels that have undergone a redo, actually had a bathtub!

The main hallway was very open, spacious and inviting. Did not get to check out Finn & Porter, but have eaten at the one in DC and it had very good fare (as well as a very reasonably priced happy hour).

Checked out the pool (they claim two pools), but it is really one pool with a weather separator for winter. The pool fine, but wished they had a hot tub.

The hotel has a shuttle to the Pentagon City metro station, which is VERY convenient. Wish they had one to King Street, but given the location of the hotel near I-395, the service to Pentagon City is understandable.

My only knock was the $24.00 they charge for parking. There is essentially no alternative as the area is surrounded by monitored parking lots for the office buildings and apartment complexes with militant towing companies. Do NOT even think of trying to sneak into the apartment complex overnight, as you will be towed...

Great experience that had an excellent staff that was always willing to assistance me, no only within the hotel, but also information regarding the immediate community. Hotel room was clean and provided everything that any traveler requires away from home!

Front desk girl, was very accommodating, wait staff for most part was very good. Really enjoyed that they had Sushi in hotel. Would have liked to have had the option to purchase Pepsi products, but was not able to.

It's a great hotel and within easy walking distance of public transportation. Need to upgrade the restaurant, it's been the same food for more than 2 years now. They try to be upscale but they really aren't. the food is pretty good, but not the best I've had in the area. The hotel guest shop is also very expensive. They exercise area is small, but well equipped and it has never been crowded.

The Hilton in DC was easy to check into, it provided a very safe environment and the room was comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. I was very pleased with my stay. The parking is worth the fee and I had no problems while I was there.

Great event, lovely place. Used outside caterer. Staff was all very courteous and helpful. Grounds were lovely to walk around and use for evening outdoor event. Indoor events required multiple rooms and set-ups which were handled very well.

The hotel property is nice and comfortable. The rooms are quiet, the beds are comfortable and the hotel staff are friendly. It's a nice venue for a conference. There are several large common meeting spaces close to large and moderate sized meeting rooms. The hotel is a shuttle ride away from either Pentagon City metro or the Alexandria metro. Once you're on the metro you can navigate through most of the metro DC area.
