The last time I stayed at this property was over five years ago. At that time it was under a major renovation, but it wasn't all that bad. Today it's still MEH - I mean I'd stay there again - mostly because it's incredibly close to IAD (a five minute drive MAX), but far enough away that there is no aircraft/tarmac noise.
The hotel features two restaurants: one open for breakfast, the other for lunch and dinner. The restaurant/bar has a decent menu - and good bargains at that during Happy Hour.
Some things are in need of fixing: This is a 4-story property. Only two elevators service the entire complex, one always seem to be displaying that it is at the Floor 3 on the ground floor annunciator. Of all things: the website - if you look at the directions page, there is listed at the top an announcement highlighted with asterisks that the interchange at McLearen Road is now open and gives directions, Yet farther down the page is the old - "turn left at the third stop light" --- why not just strip that out? The new directions also don't tell you (or at least didn't) that you need to turn left at the first traffic light off Rte 28 - and then there is a little sign pointing you to the Hilton.
Maybe it's a Hilton-thing, but the morning waitstaff is always pushing the breakfast buffet. Which I did for the first morning there - I found the selection very limited and to have over-cooked pre-mixed scrambled eggs was too much. Unfortunately, there really isn't any other restaurant nearby - and none that wouldn't involve a drive.
For a hotel just five minutes from IAD, I found it strange that the Airport Shuttle leaves every 30 minutes.
Check in and check-out was friendly and accurate
Yep, next time I'm in the area, I'd stay there again - but I can't tell you why.
