“My waitress Gladys made my stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The hotel itself is nice enough but i would not stay there for any length of time without a Car.
room clean good amenities but what really made my stay enjoyable was the way i was treated by my breakfast witness Gladys in the oxbow restaurant, she went out of her way to make me feel at home, and it w a special day when i was lucky enough to have her make me feel at home for the lunch time as well. thank you glades for making this road warrior a little less weary by your smiling presence.

thanks again,
david d

The Hilton has great beds and a shuttle from the airport, so it's a good night's sleep.

However, I had some surprises:

First, even though I was there due to a flight cancellation and wouldn't be able to fly until late in the day, they would only extend my checkout 30 minutes. There's no reason to be so stingy!

Second, the restaurants were disappointing. I ate at the sports bar late the night I arrived (ribs were tough on one end) and the main restaurant at noon the next day (same menu, tilapia was ok, but nothing great--and no brunch on a Sunday!).

Third, the fitness room, while large and including plenty of cardio equipment, dumbbells, and even a squat rack, didn't have leg extension/curl machines. That was odd.

Solid stay, but with caveats.

We were driving home to Maryland from Chantilly and saw the Hilton sign off the main road. We pulled in and asked the front desk where the hotel restaurant was. He so politely directed us down the hall. We were greeted by a wonderfully friendly hostess that showed us to a nice table in the corner and when asked, she so kindly put the closest television on the hockey game so we could watch while we dined. Then our waitress Lorena came and took our drink order and appetizer order. She was beyond pleasant. The wine was wonderful and the app was delicious. We then ordered dinner and after coffee. We stayed and watched most of the game. Lorena was a fabulous waitress that catered to us but did not "bug" us as we lingered and watched the game. She couldn't have been a better waitress!

Room Tip: Didn't stay overnight. Just came in for dinner.

This is a great hotel! The staff was friendly, the hotel was clean, my room was immaculate. The hotel was also very quiet. You won't hear slamming doors or get woken up at night. Airport shuttle was a huge bonus. Highly recommended! I will definitely stay here again when visiting the DC area! I recommend a Junior Suite. Feels like home away from home!

This stay was very nice!!! It was very peaceful and relaxing. The guest service were great. The food was delicious. The suite was very nice, however, the tub could have been bigger, but perfect for soaking in. Would stay here again.

I was not having a good day. My flight was cancelled and my day was very long and stressful, but Amy's enthusiasm was very refreshing and helpful. She was very professional and attentive to every single detail and most of all she was very welcoming, she made me feel at home. She pleasantly reminded us to keep a positive attitude after a terrible day! Because of employees like Amy Z I would definitely recommend this hotel to all the travelers. A++++

We booked this hotel because it was close to the airport. We arrived late but still got something good to eat in the bar. The hotel is only a couple of miles from the airport but I don’t remember hearing a single plane in the hotel. My son was delighted by the biggest tv in the room we have ever seen! In the morning the buffet breakfast was great with eggs cooked to order which is always a nice touch. The staff were very friendly and helped us to find things to do in the vicinity whilst we had a few hours to kill before moving on.
