Reviewed 15 July 2015

Great spot, close to Subway and most major attractions. We walked to most locations but also used a few cabs. Close to restaurants and other facilities also. Staff were helpful and friendly, breakfast in the Executive lounge was busy so suggest not leaving it till the last minute if you like a relaxed breakfast.

Good location, walking distance to White House & subway station; comfortable room setting; nice bathroom; Staff were OK. The biggest disappointment is NO FREE WiFi in the room, which is not acceptable!

I am always confident that I will be looked after properly when staying at a Hilton brand hotel. I sleep in hotels over 100 nights per year and I am in general always more satisfied with the Hilton chain. J. Sherren

We spent a few days in DC to end our vacation. The location of this hotel was perfect for sightseeing, and the hotel staff was great! Concierge was very helpful with giving us tourist info and we were able to purchase passes at the front desk for the double decker bus tours. Highly recommended.

Well organized, with the exception of clerk was having a problem finding our name. made me VERY nervous. It took an hour to get room because of the difficulty of admission to the room. All the clerk had to do is get the clerk, he found us within 15 minutes. But the hotel is great.

This was an excellent hotel in an unsurpassed location, only a block away from the White House with good local restaurants. The only thing was that the price we paid, which was not cheap, just gave us the basic hotel, did not appreciate the fact the they charged for extras such as internet access in your room, spa access etc....

i stayed here a couple of years ago and loved it. This time all I could think of was this place needs some updates. The room was old, the carpet was old, the fixtures and furniture were old too. The restaurant is very nice with experienced wait staff and great food. Even the desk clerks were tired and unfriendly. The...

This hotel is in the heart of DC. The major positives are the location and the service of the people. The fitness center is excellent; it is run by an outside entity, and is complimentary as a member of the HH program (so join before going there), As an elite member of the HH program, I found the executive lounge...

I arrived at the hotel to spend the 4th of July week-end there ahead of my husband. We had -booked two weeks earlier and had a paper receipt. Unfortunately, the booking did not go through and the hotel was fully booked. The young lady who was assisting me checked every option and was able to secure a room for us;...
