Being a Diamond Member with Hilton I usually recieve a welcome or amenity when i come to the hotel.
Arriving at the front desk, i wasn't welcomed as a member, just what credit card do you want to use and that was it.
I ask for a High Floor (The Hotel has 7 floors) and i was put on the 2nd floor.
The breakfast in the morning is real average and not that big of an area.
They do have a shuttle with the Comfort Inn (next door) to get to the Metro Station, but be sure to call in advance. (We called in advance and still weren't able to get the shuttle, which left without us)
Anyhow, the hotel is in a good location next to a soon to be renovated Springfield Mall (the mall is in dire straits right now, lots of stores have left and half the food court stores have left in antipication of a renovation etc.
Easiest way to DC is to take the Metro rather than drive downtown in traffic.
Takes about 25-30 mins to get downtown on a normal day, longer during rush hour.
Get a day pass with unlimited use for $7.80 a day.
Don't know If I'd stay again, next door is a bigger Hilton Hotel.
