The Washington Hilton,[1][2] which was officially known as the Hilton Washington for a period in the early 21st century and is sometimes referred to ironically as the Hinckley Hilton[3][4][5] by locals, is a hotel in Washington, D.C. It is located at 1919 Connecticut Avenue, N.W., roughly at the boundaries of the Kalorama, Dupont Circle, and Adams Morgan neighborhoods.

The hotel was the site of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan by John Hinckley, Jr. on March 30, 1981. The attempt occurred at the hotel's T Street NW exit.
