We couldn't have been happier with our stay last week at the Washington Hilton! My husband, three kids and I stayed there last week for 3 nights on a sightseeing trip to DC. We stayed in a 2 queen bed suite that was incredibly spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable and everything was updated and new. We did not eat at the on site restaurant but did order room service for dessert and cannot overstate how good the chocolate torte was. One of the best things about the hotel is its location. It's located within short walking distance from the Metro for easy travel downtown and in the middle of Dupont Circle. We took a guided trolley tour and the Washington Hilton is even a stop on the tour. My kids loved using the outdoor pool and couldn't get enough of the infused water each afternoon in the lobby. The little details and amenities like this made our visit wonderful! I was traveling as part of a media trip so received the media rate during our stay, but was in no way compensated for this review. We just had a really great time!
