We normally stay at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport inn, when we are in transit, either to, or from Washington, DC. This stay was different, as my wife had a brief meeting there. We are familiar with this property, as we often utilize it up to 4x per year.
The best feature of this hotel is its proximity to Washington Dulles Airport, and its shuttle vans between those two properties. As always, the shuttle was prompt, both coming and going. Unlike many other hotel shuttles, these vans have luggage storage in the rear, so one does not have to carry suitcases up the steps, then place them into interior racks - a nice touch, if one is flying through Dulles between longer stints of meetings. In our case, we headed out the next morning for meetings in Chicago and then Sacramento, so had more luggage, than we would normally.
The hotel is showing signs of wear, mostly evidenced in the room furnishings. Still, the rooms' comfort level seemed intact. Being Diamond HHonors members, we always receive an upgrade to the "Executive" or "VIP" floor. This can be a positive, as one has access to the VIP Lounge. However, we are usually arriving late, then departing early, so seldom have an opportunity to utilize the Lounge. We do like the large, walk-in showers at this property. The beds have also been comfortable, and through the Hilton HHonors Web site, I can request extra pillows and towels, at no charge.
The lobby area is quite impressive for an "airport" hotel, and the rooms are adequate for a good night's sleep. Though somewhat near IAD, there has never been any noise that we could detect from the airport.
Probably my biggest quibble is that Hilton (not just this property) should replace the little coffee makers in the room with a Keurig unit, or similar.
The staff, as always, was efficient and friendly, welcoming us back, though it was 2013 that we last stayed at this property. It was nice to see some familiar faces, indicating that there are some employees, who have been with this property for some time.
