I benchmarked this hotel against mid mid-range hotels (it’s clearly not a high end luxuryhotel from my pov, but a fair money-value deal if booked at a discount). The Good: - location (3 minutes walk to the white house) - another 3 minutes walk to Farragut North and West metro station (better don’t use Mc Pherson, too many homeless ppl...

Very disappointing stay. I have visited a Hilton Hotels for years, but this one definitely was the worst Hilton Ive ever stayed. To make it even worst my dad left his watch at the room, i called several times, they always said they'll call me back but its been more than a week and im still waiting.

Actually, our stay at the Capital Hilton restored my faith in this brand. So, the hotel is convenient to White House (about 2 blocks) and the mall. It's not that far a walk to anywhere you want to go, but, it's also a convenient one block to McPherson Square metro station. It's an older hotel but they've done a good...

I was shocked to learn that they charge $50 to park, $15 for WiFi and breakfast would have been about $15 each. Since I had booked a non refundable rate, I had no choice but to stay there. READ THE FINE PRINT!

Enjoyed staying at this hotel from a location perspective. Very close to the White house. The area is very quiet at night so the walks were quite peaceful. The hotel itself was ok. Just a place to sleep while visiting Washington.

At weekends ,this has to be one of DCs bargains. Beautiful rooms (and they have smokers!) . Located within a ten minute walk of the white house and easy access to national mall. Staff are uber friendly and the breakfast is first rate. Also historic as this was originally the Statler Hilton where many inaugural balls were held.

Hotel looks a bit dated once inside, could use some freshening up but nonetheless clean. Room was fine, very clean. Service was excellent. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Within walking distance of White House and Eisenhower Executive Office Building. A number of dining options within walking distance.
