I really enjoyed my stay. All of the staff was great the rooms were clean and spacious with no smell of cigarettes. Any problem was fixed immediately. It was also a convenient location close to the festivities we were here to attend.

Hotel's Favourite
We have stayed at this hotel numerous times just to get away from our house for a quick weekend. It is conveniently located near a CVS, Harris Tetter, and the NOMA Gallaudet Metro Station. There are plenty of restaurants near by as well. Staff has always been super friendly. Parking is valet only and is cheaper if you purchase as part of a package ($25 compared to $50 daily). We usually just park our car and use the metro or walk everywhere. Access to any floors after floor 3 is by room key only. There is an indoor swimming pool (not large) but it was fun for my kids. DC is experiencing a major homelessness issue (as is many major cities) and there are many homeless around the area. However, they are always polite and I’ve never been afraid or experienced anything that I would be offended by. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone coming into the DC metro.

My room at initial check in was not satisfactory at all so I went back down to the front desk and spoke to Tanisha and she was so very helpful in finding me a different room and even took me up there to ensure I was completely satisfied. Wonderful customer service and my stay was very nice.

The location in downtown was ideal. We have loved other Hilton Garden in locations in other Downtowns in the USA. However, this one for us was a disappointment. When we walked into our room, it smelled of old building or old pipes, or humidity. Maybe this was a remodeled old building. We proceeded to turn off the air conditioner, open the windows to air the room and that helped. However, once we closed the windows and turned on the air conditioner, I noticed the bad smell coming from the A/C unit. We also didn’t like the clientele/guests. This was an affordable option in Downtown, but we will definitely invest in other more upscale hotel option in Downtown next time. Also, there is a church close by and the bells ring every hour non-stop. Therefore, I was not able to sleep well. I think the walls and windows were thin enough to hear the after midnight city commotion from the 11th floor as if the windows were open. I do have to say that I observed that the lobby personnel were attentive to the guests helping them with their luggage and greeting them. Kudos to them.

The place is a dump. When you arrive, you run a gauntlet of people just hanging around smoking weed by the front door. The whole place smells of it to varrying degrees. If you plan on doing laundry during your stay, bring your own change. There's no change machine, It also costs more than stated on the machine and the front desk may or may not give you quarters depending on who's working. There's no room cleaning, toilet paper or fresh towels unless you ask and keep asking. There's a Keurig machine but you have to bring your own coffee. The refrigerator is only slightly above room temperature, so be careful with what you put in there and for how long. There was an iron and board as well as hair dryer. The bathroom vent fan didn't work. There's also a small microwave. You have to bag your own garbage and they'll pick it up during the day outside your door. Many buttons in the elevator don't work, but if you stay long enough you'll get the hang of it and can start training the new guests. Although the room is pretty clean and bug free, the windows are dirty. There's nothing to put your suitcases on except the floor. Our room had no table and one chair. There's a decent selection of overpriced junk food and soda in the lobby, but the freezer is empty and broken, so no late night ice cream binging. The tv provides basic cable only with no guide. No pay per view option. No USB ports. Staff for the most part is apologetic and friendly. Valley parking is $43.00 per night and the guys are very nice. The Lilley and cactus was open and we found the food very good. Wouldn't stay at another Hilton after this.
