The hotel is pretty good. There were no real issues. But left me wanting more.
The staff was amazing. Welcoming, friendly and attentive. They were all wonderful.
The location is nice. Metro is on the same block, so easy to get there if you have lots of suitcases. There is IHop across the street (food is not good, better go to some little deli), and Cheesecake Factory is about 22 minute walk or 2nd stop on Metro.
The room had very thin walls and there was a party in the adjacent room (connected to ours). Of course, it was memorial day weekend and hotel was booked to the max. Nothing could be done. It was clean and smelled nice. But I did notice there is a visible difference between different Hiltons, This one was not up to par.
The bathroom had a little off door knob that would have to be jiggled to close it, but not important. The sink is a little too tall and standouts uncomfortably, you would have to bend over all the way, specially for a a person of 4.9"-5.2"
We did not book with breakfast, which was $16 for a buffet, so cannot say anything about it.
The overall experience was bland, even though the staff was very good. At the end it was a good, clean place to crash for the night. But nothing to write home about.. I would rather take the Hilton at Dupont Circle for the same price.
