Checked in and out with an air of disappointment
I normally only stay in Hilton properties so I was a bit ticked off when I checked in as a Hilton Honors member and was given a room right next to the elevator. The room was a lot smaller than pictured on the website and not nearly as comfy as many of the other Hilton's I have stayed in. I also didn't like that there is only one restaurant in the entire hotel. I was here for my schoolcation last week. While I was here there was a prom, after which many of the prom guests ended up running around the hotel knocking on doors disturbing other guests sleep. There was also a school trip here, another disaster. Kids running all over the place knocking on doors and yelling and screaming until all hours of the night. Several of my classmates called and complained as did I but alas no relief until our last night when Hilton finally smartened up and placed a security guard on every floor these obnoxious kids were on. Lets not forget the weird guy in the hotel lobby who harassed two of my classmates. When we complained to the manager he said the guy was a regular and that he will talk to him. I was not happy at all with the housekeeping staff that kept turning off my laptop everyday. And the best was that only 2 of the 4 elevators were working which resulted in waiting for up to half an hour for an elevator almost every day I was there.
Unique Quality: Great view of the Washington Monument. Nice walkway on the lower level of the hotel. Plenty of guest parking, but it's not free. Easy to get to from 395. Very helpful concierge.
Directions: If on 395 heading south take exit 4 for Seminary Road, the hotel will be on your left.
This 28-story hotel is easily seen on the west side of Alexandria. The trappings are as luxurious as any you would expect in a full-service Hilton hotel. While the rack rate can be scalding ($350 per night and up), prices can be soft, especially outside the tourist and convention seasons. Your best bet is to check online to see if you can get a discounted room. Also look for special deals such as the "Bed and Breakfast" rate. This particular rate will get you the business-class buffet breakfast included, sometimes for the same price as the room alone.
We booked online and were fortunate enough to get a steeply discounted room on a high floor with a very nice view. The room was comfortable, with all of the amenities you would expect from a full-service hotel (including in-room mini-bar... be careful not to touch any of the shelves or you could be charged!). If you're driving, parking is available for an additional charge of $9 per night (though sometimes this fee gets waived for "Hilton Honors" members). If you don't have a car, there's convenient and complimentary shuttle service every 30 minutes between the hotel, the Pentagon City Mall (adjacent to a Metro station servicing the Blue and Yellow Lines), and Reagan National Airport.
Unique Quality: - High-Rise luxury hotel sometimes offering steeply discounted rooms

Directions: Exit 4 off of I-395. Take Seminary Rd. Westbound. You will see the high-rise on your left. Also accessible by Metrobus 7A/F/W/X. The hotel has a complimentary shuttle every 30 minutes to/from Pentagon City and Reagan National Airport.
1st Class Accommodations
I previously stayed at this hotel when it was a Radisson and I enjoyed the experience then. Well I have to say that it's still a nice place to call your home for a short period of time.
You've got a nice size lake (with a fountain) to look at, plus on a clear day you can see downtown Washington D.C. Service is impeccable, and the rooms are well kept with lots of amenities.
Unique Quality: The hotel is located in the west end of Historic Alexandria and offers attentive service combined with value. The Hilton Alexandria Mark Center has a unique lakeside setting which a peaceful oasis for travelers to Washington.
The helpful staff provides information as soon as the guests arrive, the guest rooms offer comfortable elegance with the services and amenities that only a first-class hotel can provide. There is state-of-the-art business center, swimming pool and health club.
Directions: Located off I-395 (Exit 4/Seminary Road - West).
