Fantastic ovation, extremely helpful staff in every part of the hotel. Booked through Hilton website and had a bed and breakfast deal-great value. Friendly and efficient staff at check in (Areienne) changed our room to a corner suite (she felt our original choice on the executive floor would be too small for three of us staying a week). Room was...

1st room lock did not work, 2nd room was very noisy and sheers of both windows windows entirely torn and shredded for room 798. This is not an exaggeration, I have a video of this. This is below motel 6 standard. Front desk did not care for anything when I reported.

The highlight of this hotel is the location as it is only a few blocks away from the White House and the National Mall. The Hotel itself is as you would expect from a Hilton. Uncomplicated check in, clean and spacious rooms which were quiet. The common areas lack some personality but where clean and functional.

The service at this hotel exceeded what I would have expected. The front desk was willing to do anything to make my stay more comfortable and even offered a late check out when I inquired about bag storage. The room I had was decent but on the small side. This was not unexpected being where it was. The bed itself...

Knoxville, United States

One of my best hotel experiences ever. I picked it based on the Hilton name and because the Old Town Trolley shuttle picked up from the hotel. I was travelling with my elderly mother and this made our trip so much easier. She thoroughly enjoyed her "once in a lifetime" trip. Thank you!!

Had a VERY enjoyable experience at this hotel. Everyone was so friendly. As a diamond member, I was given a junior suite. The suite was very large consisting of a separate living room and bedroom. If this is what they are calling a junior suite, there full suites must be huge. I was also given access to the executive lounge...

I benchmarked this hotel against mid mid-range hotels (it’s clearly not a high end luxuryhotel from my pov, but a fair money-value deal if booked at a discount).
