My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic dinner at The Grist Mill on our first evening in D.C. The service was top notch! The menu selections are more than just adequate, but not excessive to the point where it would raise concern. We each had...More

Let me echo other reviews. This restaurant is good and you forget it is attached to a hotel. Our server was excellent and attentive. We ordered the shrimp with pineapple salsa and chips to start. We then just ordered salads; rocket salad and the pear...More

Unless you have the breakfast rate included, you should skip. A hotel breakfast that would usually be thrown in, but at regular DC breakfast prices. Uninspired, bacon, French toast, omelettes. Tired fruit.

This place has changed and not for the better. I've been here a year ago and two years ago and it was fantastic. This year, so many of the fantastic menu items are gone. No more meatloaf, shrimp and grits, lobster mac and cheese, etc....More

This hotel restaurant deserves a review of its own. The breakfast buffet is what you would expect at a Hilton Garden Inn. But for dinner it goes way beyond your expectations. We were often too tired after a day of museum-hopping to figure out where...More

While the waitstaff is not the friendliest in town, the restaurant supervisor if very nice. The breakfast buffet is far above normal hotel breakfast buffets with a made-to-order omelet and waffle bar. If you’re a hotel guest, do the bed and breakfast rate and save...More
