2.0 Bad
The service was terrible and the staff was argumentative. Worst business experience we have ever had. We checked out early and got another hotel incurring 2x the cost for the trip. Low price is not worth the poor treatment of guests. No return call from the manager. No return call from Hilton corporate.
10.0 Excellent
When we first checked in the room smelled like smoke. The front office guy was super nice and immediately accommodated us and put us in a different and larger room. This is great customer service
8.0 Great
Pros:It's a great location behind the white house but I wish they'd offered a free breakfast
Cons:at least letting us know they're going to be replacing AC units on the roof and not having to look at a giant crane truck the next morning
9.1 Excellent
Pros:you can find a better price at hilton homepage. I got a free wifi at lower price. building is quite old( built in 1943 and is a national heritage) but managed excelently. I arrived at noon and a staff gave a room just cleaned-up for an early check-in. official check-in time is 4pm. staffs are super-friendly. location is just behind the whitehouse and at the K street known as a DC's splendid street. we could find every kinds of restaurants within 10-min walk. I want to use this hotel again if I could visit DC with my family again.
Cons:When I opened room door, I found directly two beds. if there were a person at the corridor, he could have seen anything going on in the room.
8.0 Great
Pros:It was in a great location and has a very opulent feel when you enter.
Cons:The gym is not included in your stay unless you are a certain level Hilton Rewards member. The beds were not as comfy as I expected for a Hilton.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The staff was excellent, friendly and welcoming! Great location, clean and very spacious room. Will definitely book again when back in DC!
8.0 Great
Pros:The room was excellent. Staff very courteous, friendly and helpful.
Cons:I thought the cost for overnight parking at $59.00 was high for a guest in the hotel
8.5 Great
Pros:Room. Cleanliness. Privacy.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Spacious room with super comfortable bed.
Cons:No warning for the loud construction noise just outside our bed window at 6:30 am Sunday and then 5:30 Monday am. When we complained the front desk said nothing could be done.
6.2 Okay
Pros:Location was excellent, most staff was nice and helpful.
Cons:If you wanted Wifi, you had to pay extra. Channels on the television had horrible reception 9/10 times. One bellhop was incredibly rude when I asked to use a luggage cart, that were kept in their storage room at the moment, as I had multiple heavy bags to load in my car. Parking was outrageous per day ($60). This parking fee was also not included on Kayak or Pricline.
