There's nothing wrong with this hotel. Bit there is nothing significant either. The executive lounge was a big disappointment. The breakfast was basic and the evening reception was lacking. I was expecting more since this is a proper Hilton hotel.

I have stayed here several times and have enjoyed each stay. I really like the fact that this is a serious business hotel in a fantastic location near the White House - but the gracious staff makes it warm and friendly and not pretentious. The lobby lounge "The Statler" is fun and relaxed with excellent beverages and food. In a... More

Washington DC is expensive for hotels. The Capital Hilton had a very good price and is located blocks from the White House, a Metro station, and a Starbucks all very close. There are multiple places to eat with easy waking distance, many only 1 block away. The rooms are not the best looking, though they have everything you need and... More

I have just made a booking via booking.com and the reception staff would not let my wife check in as they did not recognise the booking reference number. Not only were they rude, they were really unhelpful and said that it was not their responsibility in trying to resolve the problem as there systems were down!!! They did not try... More

Staying at the Capital Hilton once a decade breeds familiarity. The hotel is in great need of refurbishing. The lobby is very tired and run down and reveals that management takes Advantage of their great great location. The room was very satisfactory with a comfortable bed and very clean. Nothing special in today's world but very acceptable. The housekeeping crew... More

I stayed for a weekend in DC in September, my plan was 100% touristic. The hotel has a perfect location, two blocks from The White House and a bike rental station on the corner. The price was good. The hotel is kind of old, but well maintained, my room was big, with a weird distribution and a small bed for... More

This is a very nice hotel in a great location for seeing our Nations monuments and treasures. Our room was fine, the staff was great and the location is the best. The room rate of $200 seems low and I'm sure it is for downtown DC but you also will pay $56 plus tips for valet parking. If you are... More
