My true rating is probably 3-1/2, but I'll bump up to 4 for some intangibles (more pluses than minuses). Stayed at the hotel, based on location for a business meeting, the hotel is very convenient to campus. If you are cabbing it from BWI, beware that it's a mid-$40-ish cab ride.
I hustled through the airport and got to the hotel earlier than plan, only to discover the bar and restaurant were closed (it was about 9:40pm). My only nearby option was the vegetarian restaurant across the street.
The rooms are nice. As a Hilton Diamond, I received a suite, with a sitting room (flat screen TV, couch, fridge, mic), separated by a hallway, to a decent-size bedroom area (also with flat screen TV, and chair). The bathroom had a whirlpool tub, but I just used the shower. Counter top space was very good. Overall the room was nice and reasonably quiet. There were a couple waters in the room on the first night, were never replaced.
Wifi was free and the signal was good. I visited the restaurant once for the free "elite" continental breakfast. It was pretty bad (meager offerings, and empty restaurant), so I skipped the remaining mornings and just opted for coffee. On subsequent nights, when the bar was open, service was great. Olga is a great bartender on the weekend.
The staff here tries very hard, so good marks for effort.
