Hilton Garden Inn Washington, DC Downtown
Ranked #58 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 February 2014

My family spent three days at the Hilton Garden Inn for pleasure and college visits. Could not have picked a better choice. Location is perfect--you do not need a car. Metro and walking can get you everywhere. The staff is amazing--so kind and helpful in everyway. Gennarmo in the restaurant will get you anything you need and always with a smile and humor. Breakfast is delicious, the rooms are clean and cozy, the lobby is friendly and inviting. Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: We stayed in a king suite on the eighth floor. No view but very quiet.

We stayed here for 6 nights in January and really enjoyed the time. We chose this hotel predominately for its location, and were not disappointed at all.
There is a Metro station right across the road which made it easy to get to Arlington National Cemetary, this hotel was walking distance to almost everything we wanted to get to. We hired a car to get out to the Udvar Hazy Center, and to get out to Gettysburg.
We arrived late at night after delayed flights etc from the East Coast, and were a little unimpressed with the initial greeting at reception. Although being efficient and getting checked in quite quickly, there just wasn't that 'welcome' feeling. Where the Reception staff failed in their hospitality; the Wait Staff in the Grist Mill were brilliant! They were warm, welcoming, extremely accommodating, nothing was an issue or too hard. They really made our stay at the hotel exceptional. We had breakfast included in our package and we chose to eat at the restaurant most nights, because the meals were great. A special mention to Darlene and Genaro who truly went out of their way for us, including when my sister arrived with her smaller kids and my mum. They made them feel so welcome.
The Room was a little smaller than we had been staying in, however, it was comfortable and warm. Having a microwave was brilliant and made it easier with little kids.
We truly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to friends without hesitation.

We stayed 4 nights here in January 2014 and it ticked all the boxes for what we wanted from our booking.
Location is great, literally across the road from a metro station that goes direct to the airport, Pentagon and Arlington and walking distance to all of the museums/White house/Mall/Monuments.
Friendly check in staff who received and stored packages for us in the week leading up to our arrival. A nice bar area downstairs with attached restaurant, which we didn't eat at, but the menu looked like it catered for many tastes.
We got a street-facing room but were up on floor 12 so we didn't notice too much noise at all, especially as we had the AC on warming the place up all day given how frigid the weather was outside.
Comfy bed, good selection of TV channels, nice desk/chair and another comfy chair. Safe in the room, wardrobe for hanging clothes. Bathroom was nice and clean, shower could have had a little more power but it served its purpose.
We got a great rate booking direct through Hilton. That, plus the location, made it a perfect choice for a weekend getaway. We'll definitely consider staying here again should we find ourselves back in DC.
There was also apparently a fitness room and pool downstairs - but we didn't make use of these facilities.

Great location directly across from the Metro--- easy transport to and from the airport and major attractions, some even walkable. Nice, comfortable room, good value and plenty of restaurants nearby. Neighborhood a bit shady at night, but isn't most of D.C. after dark? Recommend to others; would definitely stay again.

Stayed here last week for a night whilst visiting the local tourist sites. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean with some nice extras like a microwave in the room.
The hotel is well located and is easy to get to the usual tourist sites. All of the staff were very friendly and very helpful and the hotel has free wifi if you need to research any attractions etc.
The only negative in relation to our stay was the parking cost. At over 40USD a day its a little steep but you have little other choice so if youre driving make sure you factor this into you stay.

I stayed free for 3 nights in November attending a convention. Though the hotel was not in proximity to the convention centre, it is walkable, a good 15 minutes leisurely walk perhaps. It is however 8 minutes walk to the White house and around 10 minutes walk to the smithsonians. I was satisfied with the amount I paid, not cheap but worth it. The room was clean, design is fresh and zen, There is a microwave and coffee maker. It is the usual Hilton garden inn type of rooms. What is remarkable is the friendly staff, the nearness of the metro, the various shops and restaurants around it makes it a good choice.

Room Tip: rooms near elevators may be a little noisy sometimes but not too disturbing. I preferred those rooms...

Just got back from an overnight stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. Made a last minute reservation for family of 4 including 2 teens. The good: location is terrific as it is within walking distance to many sights and restaurants. Value was really good too. Hotel is clean. Lobby is nice. The bad: double beds are too small for 2 large persons. Valet parking charge was $38.00. Heating system was awful as either hot air or cold air alternately blew out. Would consider it again for a short stay, but not for an extended stay.
