Hilton Garden Inn Washington, DC Downtown
Ranked #58 of 141 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2009

We expected a Hilton Hotel to be very good. After pricing most other hotels in the same area for the same dates we chose the Hilton Garden Inn for the reasonable room rates. It turned out to be a great Hotel in a great location for us . Very Clean, nice bar and restaurant, good service, and access to the Metro across the street. We would definitely stay here again.

Reallly small cozy hotel downtown...with warm cookies that were always waiting for us...we had an ongoing joke with the front desk...when we'd come in...they would say we kept these cookies waiting just for you...they were warm chocolate chip cookies...it was a good way to end our day.

Our room was quiet and clean...late one night we heard lots of noise down on the street...it was an alley...we called the front desk...and within minutes it was quiet again...we never heard anymore noise after that night.

Found the CVS...good find...just down the street...cheaper to get snacks and supplies here...the DC store is more like a grocery store.

Across from the hotel there is a restaurant and the underground train....since everything downtown closes around 4pm...we got salads and fruit from the restaurant and keep it in our fridge.

We were two ladies out in DC...so we took caution, since it was downtown...but having the train just across the street made it an easy run into our hotel at night.

My suggestion to you...is to find the restaurants and the attractions you want to go to and plan your day....everything opens and closes at different times...you need to get tickets far in advance for some attractions....some places you can only get to one way...so make sure you have all your ducks in a row....it sucks to get almost there...only to find out you missed the last bus by just minutes.

Wear wore comfy shoes...cause you never know...one day we figured out we had walked over 5 miles.

Best place to eat..."Old Ebbitt Grill"...great crab cakes and burgers.
Best view to have a drink..."Sky Terrace" at the Hotel Washington.

The hotel was good in terms of location. everything was in close proximity but the sound from the road was so loud that it really didnt give us much time to enjoy the hotel. but the fact that it was centrally located was one good thing that made our money worth. but if someone is really looking for a romantic getaway or something i dont recommend this hotel.

Mattress and bed linens were great, room was nice, very good location BUT my room was on the back side and the beeping sound of garbage trucks in the alley starting at 4:30 a.m. was horrible. Make sure you are picky about the room location you reserve.

Stayed here at the end of March to see the Pompeii exhibit. This Hotel is great! We walked
to everything and our room was quite nice. Staff was very friendly and we felt completely safe staying in this section of downtown D.C. Will stay here again next time we visit Washington.

We wanted to be near all the major DC attractions. The HGI was indeed the perfect location for our family getaway, 2 blocks away from the White house and within walking distance of the all the museums situated on the Mall and 6 blocks away from the Verizon Center. The staff was welcoming. Front desk very efficent. Maids polite and friendly. The hotel has an indoor pool which the kids loved after a day visiting. The room was standard size and well appointed with a large flat screen tv and free Internet. The parking fee is expansive ($30/night), so we used it only on the first night and took advantage of free parking on the street during the weekend to save some $. The Metro is just accross the street. The neighboorhood is clean and safe, so we would definitely go back to the Hilton Garden Inn at Franklin Square.

For the price you cannot beat it. We prepaid for 140 a night for 3 nights and we loved our stay. Arrived a Reagan got on the metro and 10 mins later we are at the hotel right across the street. The rooms were very nice for a 3 star hotel and we loved the bed and pillows. The staff was relatively good and helpful. I do not know about the noise factor complaints, but we did not notice. I do not think you can always blame the hotel for the people staying across from you. You’re in the city and the rooms are close to each other. Sometimes you just luck out.

Location!!!!
We walked 5 mins to the White House and Ebbit grill one day and on the next to the Oceanaire Restaurant the next day was about 10 mins. Hop on the Metro and 3 stops later your in the Mall area. The only time we really took a taxi form the Hotel is to Georgetown and the National Cathedral because the Metro does not go there
