I have only stayed at this particular Hilton hotel with a high school conference, so I am probably a bit skewed. The location is wonderful, near Dupont Cirlce and Georgetown. The staff is a bit lacking, I had to wait over five hours to check in to our rooms one year. This meant that I didn't have room keys for all the rooms until 11 pm! There is no excuse for this type of poor planning on the hotels part-this particular conference has been hostes at the same hotel for approximately 20 years!
