The Hilton is conveniently located just blocks from the historic “Old Town” area full of shops and boutiques, restaurants, and taverns. There is a free trolly that runs from the hotel right down to the waterfront area and the old Torpedo Factory. The DC Metro stop is literally across the street providing great access to just about anything of interest in DC. Click here for a Vitual Tour of the Hotel!

The room rate is just $139.00 plus tax per night based on single or double occupancy and includes breakfast for two.
