Nicely upgraded over the years. Could use some broader breakfast options in their small in-house cafe, but it is OK for the price.

Great stay!

Great rooms! My boyfriend and I got there way before the check in time and the staff was so friendly and they were able to get us a room early! A little busy considering we visited during a huge conference but would definitely stay again! Thank you Hilton D.C.!

Wash DC great Local!

The setting of this hotel is perfect, nice rooms & amenities. Some service spotty, but for a big hotel somewhat acceptable. Will not get any personalized care--such as the keys did not work for some reason the 2nd night and it was a drawn out hassel to remedy at 10pm at night and little apology. I also have a mystery charge on my credit card now from Hilton for something I have no idea about & its being disputed . The location has just the right balance of places to see, unique, quality places to eat and shop at right along CT. Ave. ,side streets from Metro to the hotel...The hotel has a vibrant lobby, BUT food offerings within hotel are kinda pricey. A plain bagel w/ butter in the "to go cafe" there was $4.50 where as the little independent convenience store steps from hotel had fab smoothies and a bagel for a total of about $5.50! Unusual find...

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

On Sunday there was a great farmers market right south of hotel--eat yr breakfast there! or a MUST SEE is the Firehook Bakery for lunch or breakfast or takeaway! #42 Bus took us right from hotel to the fabulous Museum of American Art /Nat'l Portrait Gallery --and then walk to all other Smithsonian sights from there! perfect to see parts of DC reasonably and not to deal with dreary metro hassel! City bus was clean and most pleasant bus drivers! I only had a long busy wkend , but wished I had got a bonafide bus map as I just stumbled upon that method of getting to see stuff midway through trip...

Always a pleasure

Location is perfect. Staff is very nice. Rooms have great views and food was yummy. Close to where I needed to be this week and no issues. What else can someone ask for during their hotel stay? Thanks Washington Hilton!

Terrible stay

We stayed one night at this hotel and paid over $450 for it. We had booked it through an online travel agency. In short, worst hotel experience we've ever had given the price. We did have one "hotel" experience trekking in Nepal that was marginally worse, but we paid $2.50 for that room... First, front desk at check-in pretended breakfast was not included. I had to search through emails to find the reservation and show it to her before she grudgingly accepted it. Second, hotel was fully booked so they gave us a horrible little room on the ground floor that they must set aside for bookings that come in through online travel agencies. Third, room had issues: a) Bathtub plug didn't work (one of those fancy push-down ones so our portable rubber one that we always bring with us didn't help). We had our 5-month old with us and desperately needed to give her a bath after our trip but couldn't because the tub would not fill up. We called front desk (at 10:30pm - we had checked in a few minutes before) and they said they would send the engineer to come fix it asap. An hour went by, no engineer so we put baby to bed - takes a long time because she's hot and dirty and uncomfortable. Finally she gets to sleep and phone rings at 11:45 pm - front desk saying engineer still delayed. Baby awoken but they were keeping us updated, so can't blame them. But we told them engineer no longer needed since baby was asleep, and please do not call again. 12:30am - phone rings - baby wakes up. Front desk says engineer is now available. We whisper: "WE DONT NEED THE ENGINEER ANY MORE. PLEASE DO NOT DISTURB US FURTHER." We spend another 45 mins trying to put the baby down. Somewhere b/w 1am and 2am, someone knocks on the door (despite the Do Not Disturb sign on the door). Baby wakes up again. It's the friendly engineer. So for our $450 we basically got 2-3 hours of sleep because of the inability of the front desk to communicate with their operations staff. b) Bathroom sliding door would not open from inside so you were locked in unless someone from outside lifted it up from the bottom.
