Want to stay in a luxury hotel while soaking up some history? Then the Hilton in Washington is the place for you. A modern urban retreat located on several acres near Dupont Circle at the centre of the nation’s capital, this venue has played host to America’s rock royalty down the years. In fact, during the sixties and seventies it saw shows from the likes of the Doors and Jimi Hendrix.
Today the hotel doesn’t offer quite the same incendiary nightlife as it once did but still provides the perfect backdrop from which to explore Washington DC and its myriad attractions. There’s the Smithsonian National Zoo about a mile away from the Hilton's front door and Rock Creek Park and the historic district of Georgetown are both located nearby.
The hotel has hosted presidents, world leaders, and other prominent figures since it opened back in 1965. It comprises 110,000-plus square footage of space including its legendary 36,000 square foot international ballroom complex. It's the coming together of such an iconic hotel chain and civic centre that make Hilton Washington such a great place to experience. The hotel's simply outstanding accommodation - in the form of spacious suites or executive rooms - lines up nicely with this idea, and provides your stay with that air of sophistication that the city traveller holds dear.
Building on their already high standards of cleanliness, Hilton hotels have developed the Hilton CleanStay programme. This entails elevating hygiene protocols with enhanced regulations and staff training for the safety and comfort of both guests and employees across the worldwide portfolio. Highlights include the introduction of: the Hilton CleanStay Room Seal so guests can be sure that their room has not been accessed since it was cleaned; increased disinfection of public spaces and high-touch areas within rooms; new technologies such as electrostatic machines with disinfecting mist; contactless check-in and check-out with Digital Key. Hilton has earned household brand name status and is trusted by millions for putting their health and happiness whilst on holiday to the top of their list.
