The Capital Hilton is an old hotel but in a very central location, only 2 blocks from the White House. Whilst it is a bit dated, our room was very clean with a very comfortable bed and a good hot shower, coffee maker, safe, iron and ironing board. I enjoyed the buffet breakfast selection and had an omelette perfectly cooked...

I have been here 3 nights to attend a conference. The hotel is very close to the Washington monument and the White House..but these are the only good things about this hotel. My executive room was minuscule, the bathroom is so small that is almost invisible, carpets are old ( the entire hotel is very old..) with dirty spots, the...

I was somewhat disappointed in this room. The bed was good, but the bathroom was dated. There was not a little refrigerator which seemed strange to me. However, the ice machine was convenient. I guess that I expected a bit more, give the price of accommodations here.

Just back from the Capital Hilton. Great location, 2 blocks from the White House. Very nice lobby. The check-in couldn't be easier because we used the app to select a room. The furniture in the room needs refreshing, but AC, TV, and all worked fine. I was surprised to find no mini-fridge. The room service prices were extremely expensive compared...

My Mother, Sister and I recently stayed at the Capitol Hilton in Washington D.C. in Aug. 2015. I have stayed at many Hilton all around the country and know what to expect from them. This hotel has some good and some bad things about it. On the plus side, the hotel is generally nice and clean. It is very centrally...

Great location with a hotel that has a little bit of unique history. Nice enough but could use some updating. The price was right and the staff was nice. The White House is right out the front door. Best place I've ever stayed... No. Would I stay there again. Almost for sure.

Stayed in Washington for a 5 day sightseeing trip for which this hotel was ideal. Location was great for us, quiet but with restaurants one block away and the White House one further block on. Staff were consistently helpful and friendly. Nice room albeit with uninspiring view of inner courtyard. Free WiFi although that may only be for Hilton Honours...

We booked a double room with executive lounge included, which is accessed with your door key. Great to access for a coffee, or beverage in the afternoon, with nuts as well or for a snack between 5-7pm. Breakfast comprised of toast, cereals, porridge and scrambled eggs, as well as fruit, was adequate and kept us going for our day of...
