I stayed for a combined family weekend and then a conference, so I had two separate reservations and experienced two separate rooms - one for the family weekend and one for the conference days. Both check in and check out was quick and easy. The rooms were great, although I noticed a musty smell in the 3rd floor hallway. Beds were comfortable, but the pillows seemed a bit flat. I had one meal in the lobby restaurant, and it was good. While the food was 'good' the restaurant service was 'great'. The bellhop / luggage storage was fabulous and made life easy because we had to check out at 11am but our flight was at 10pm. The storage allowed us to play in the city while not having a room on our final afternoon (to keep luggage secure). There is a taxi stand right by the hotel, and the longest we had to wait for a cab was about 10 seconds - that was awesome. The walk to Dupont Circle metro stop is very manageable, and Dupont Circle offers plenty of dining options. My complaints in general with the hotel is that 1) it requires (of non-Hilton members) to purchase room WiFi (seems to be an archaic policy) and 2) vending machine prices. $3 for a single serve bottle of soda. There's no need for that price inflation.
I would consider staying here again if the price is right.More
