The Washington Hilton has looked over Dupont Circle for 50 years and received a $140 million makeover in 2010, revamping guest rooms, the health club and adding a pool to the property. Although the hotel is five miles from the National Mall’s monuments and museums, the surrounding area offers a wealth of landmarks and nightlife for guests. In a 10-minute walk, guests can reach Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, the U Street Corridor and the National Zoo in Woodley Park.

Rooms are bright, featuring minimalist design and allergen-free linens and pillows. All rooms have a work station and suites also include seating areas. Upgrading to the Executive Rooms on the 19th floor gains access to the lounge’s free breakfast and afternoon hors d’oeuvres as well as complimentary Wi-Fi. Room service is available throughout the day, including a children’s menu.

On-site, guests have a wide range of dining options including a sports bar, the chic lobby bar with complimentary Wi-Fi, the coffee shop which opens at 5:30 each morning and The District Line serving American comfort foods for breakfast and lunch with the option to sit outside from May through October.

The hotel’s fitness center is $10 per day for hotel guests and complimentary for HHonors members. The outdoor pool is free for guests and has a wide sun deck and a children’s wading pool. The hotel is a pickup/drop-off site for open-top sightseeing tour bus.
