You’ll be able get work done in their modern business center, stay fit in their fitness center, or relax for a day with a massage in their full-service spa.

What’s the Area Like?

Truly located in the heart of the U.S. capital, this Hilton property is just two blocks from the White House and three metro stations. If you want to experience U.S. history, many of the city’s attractions, including the Washington Monument and the World War II Museum, are all within walking distance. The area also has plenty of eateries to visit, and trendy Dupont Circle is just a short metro ride away.

What are the Rates?

Stays at the Hilton aren’t cheap, but then again, they’re not supposed to be. Rates vary depending on dates, with their standard rooms costing between $199 and $269. The king bed executive room, on the other hand, runs about $354.

What’s the Bottom Line?
