The long-shuttered hotel property on L’Enfant Plaza, now dubbed the Hilton Washington D.C. National Mall, has reopened after a closure of more than five years.  The 367-room hotel has laid fallow since Stanford Hotels & Resorts bought it from then JBG Cos. in a court-ordered sale in 2013. Stanford shuttered the hotel to make way for the renovation, though there was little immediate movement at the time.  The project features a complete renovation of the guest rooms, an opening up of the lobby and attached restaurant, and renovation of the meeting and event spaces. In all, the Hilton at L’Enfant Plaza has 23,000 square feet of meeting and event space.  In the guest rooms, which average more than 300 square feet, there are now hard-surface floors — and complimentary slippers to help keep noise down.
