The Hilton Washington DC National Mall hotel: a modern and stylish version of its former self. We are incorporating contemporary and upscale design elements to suit the needs of future travelers. Great attention to detail has been a focus including a LEEDS Silver classification to provide our guests with the latest in technology including Fiber Optic WiFi throughout, as well as green building strategies to sustain resources for generations to come. Hilton Washington DC National Mall hotel sits high above one of the most convenient rapid transit stations linking our guests to 5 of the 6 metro lines. Close to the action is an understatement, as we are just a short two block stroll to the National Mall to visit our Nations' most popular memorials, one block to the re-developing District Wharf a remarkable, mile-long section along the Southwest Potomac River's, and a 15 minute walk to the Capitol Hill, and across from the NEW International Spy Museum schedule to open sometime in 2019.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights, the hotel is nice and clean, the location is very walkable, but more importantly the staff is amazing. We were lucky enough to be assisted by Alex at the front desk and Michael at the bar, they made this stay unforgettable. Will definitely come back, highly recommend.

Hotel's Favourite
I’ll start with that this Hilton is perfectly located - ten min walk to every major museum, and landmark, which is why we chose it. We also spent lots of time at the Wharf which is a short walk as well. Upon arrival we were greeted by the friendliest most wonderful staff. The rooms are brand new and spacious - the bathrooms are all upgraded. No carpet! We needed a pack and play crib in our room for our baby and it was waiting and ready after a long day of travel. The Starbucks in the lobby also has the best ladies staffing it - we were sad to say goodbye to them! Anything we needed (extra towels, bottles of water, extra blankets) was delivered within minutes to our room. Even the valet was so kind and warm. This is a well run, excellent choice for a hotel in DC!

While location for this hotel was amazing, I expected a lot more for the price of this hotel and for being a diamond member. Before arriving, I asked for a room with a view and had been told I was upgraded to one. When I arrived, I was surprised to find out I had a view of what looked like a leaking portion of hotel siding and the top of some unpleasant looking buildings. In my room, I went to sit at the desk but noticed it was filthy. Luckily I brought my own wipes because the wipes I used turned black from how dirty the work station was. It made me skeptical about hotel cleanliness overall. Also, I stayed here for 4 days and 2 of these days, multiple wash rags I received were dirty. I am not a clean freak but this combined with the table incident made me feel uncomfortable. Also, when asked about accessing the parking garage from hotel I was pointed to a set of doors that were continuously locked (or only one door would open) on either side and had no adequate signage to tell you which elevator to go to. The entire stay was a guessing game for which door was available for me to access my car. Even vallet seemed clueless that the doors were locked and just simply told me they were suppose to be open. This is very confusing and inconvenient when it’s 30 degrees outside. The location is wonderful as it’s close to the Wharf and minutes from the National Mall. Service was pretty good but I didn’t experience anything specific to say amazing service.

Hotel is great and is in a central location. affordable parking within a 5 minutes walk. Hotel and rooms seem to have been recently renovated and are very nice and modern. Hotel honors Diamond upgrades which is always a huge welcomed plus. Great Hotel would stay again

Very unimpressive. The arrival experience started with me pulling up to the drive and the valet who was in the stand didn’t even bother to look up, and he continued to look to what I am guessing was his phone, until I said: hello, what’s the parking situation? and I was already out of my car with all of my bags - he replied with - valet is $45. And preceded to look down. Once I entered the hotel I stopped at the front desk and very similar check in - cold and robotic. The room was modern looking but the bathroom amenities are outdated and the cleanliness could have been a bit better. I called for a blanket and got towels instead. The TV wouldn’t connect with my phone so I have to call customer support to help me. The bed/pillows were comfortable and I was able to sleep, and the check out person was a bit friendlier. I did text to get my car and that was quick and the person helping me with that was way friendlier too! Overall I felt like a number and not a guest. Would not stay here again.

Checked in a bit early and was pleasantly surprised to receive a complimentary upgrade. My family was very excited! The hotel is very clean and modern. The location is good - a very close walk to the wharf and the Smithsonian museums. It's not in the most scenic location (lots of freeways and concrete), but that didn't bother us or get in our way. Breakfast was excellent - I'd high recommend the buffet. Overall, I'd stay again and would recommend to others. Kudos to the staff for their service!

The front desk staff, specifically Constance and Mekseb Z., were beyond delightful and truly represented the excellence of the hotel management and the Hilton brand as a whole. The hotel accommodations are perfect for the business traveler and the housekeeping team runs a tight and pristine ship. Difficult to find anything negative of note to mention. Looking forward to my next stay at this hotel with the current team in place.

Love having 2 king beds in a room, having Starbucks in the building, close to the wharf and the national mall. Beds are a little firm for my taste and wish the outdoor pool was available and heated - we had warm weather in November - a great treat. Overall a really good experience.

The hotel is very conveniently located in the heart of DC. Very clean, Starbucks onsite and great hotel bar. The only downside is that the bar closed at 11pm on a Saturday night.The valet staff was great as well! They were really awesome!

Pros: 5-10 min walk to the Smithsonians /national mall and has a metro station right below the hotel. There’s tons to do and see very close by. The breakfast buffet is worth if you’re a gold member or up. Eggs, bacon, potatoes and the usual continental stuff. We ate breakfast here every morning for the convenience and the fact that it was only $10 after our rewards discount. There were also some really great staff at the desk, especially the night crew Jonniece and Senecca. They put up with me buying late night snacks from the grab and go station and were very friendly. Fitness room was clean and had a good amount of machines. Cons: our room was a corner suite and had a little bit of a weird layout. There were a lot of little things that didn’t really flow like a hotel room usually does. We also don’t love that there’s no microwaves in the room to heat something up quick. And we also had an issue with our safe that was never resolved. Overall we would definitely stay again just because of the location , convenience of the metro and amenities.
