Yes, the Capella lives up to its 5-star rating with well-designed, comfortable rooms. But what sets the Capella apart from other hotels is its exceptional staff. During a heavy snowstorm, taxis were no where to be found, and we had to catch a train. No problem - a member of the staff left the hotel, walked who knows how far... More

My husband and I had just checked out of the Four Seasons in Georgetown (there for a business meeting) and we didn't know how our three nights at Capella would compare. . . We loved Capella more than the Four Seasons! This is the epitome of class and luxury. From the bellmen who welcome you by name everytime they see... More

This small, 5 star hotel takes service very seriously. Rooms are luxurious and very comfortable. 5 star hotel without being stuffy. I've stayed at other 5 stars in the area (Ritz and Four Seasons) and Capella is by far a better choice.

On Thursday evening, upon arrival at the Capella Georgetown we were greeted by the Door/Bellman, who asked our names, and inquired on our well being. We were escorted to the "Living Room" - which is the private check in area for guests of this 5 Star - 44 room property. We were greeted by Michelle, by name, welcomed to the... More

My husband and I stayed here for an overnight birthday trip and we are so glad we picked it over the Ritz Georgetown. The hotel is very small but very unique and awesome service. The small reception area had hot toddies, tea and coffee, which was a nice touch. We were originally put into a room that had views of... More

I loved this hotel and wish I could have stayed longer! I originally wanted to stay at this hotel but chose another down the street since the property doesn't have an on-site spa. Boy did I regret that (see my review for Four Seasons). I absolutely loved the décor of the hotel-- it added a couple spoonfuls of glamour and... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Capella Washington DC when I was in the city recently to assist my daughter who was moving to the area. Everything about this small and intimate property is refined. We were quickly greeted by the valets and ushered to reception to our “personal assistant” where check in was a sit down affair....

We loved everything about this hotel, except the price of course, but you get what you pay for. It hit a homerun on location, incredible decor and style, food and BEST of all, incredible roof top deck with bar and pool. There are only a few hotels in DC with this feature. We live in the area and the Capella... More

I stayed at the Capella this last weekend and it was fantastic. Their location on the canal is great, the staff was wonderful, and everything exceeded my expectations. The personal assistant contacted me in advance, and after learning it was my girlfriend's birthday, had a small cake with candle waiting for us in the room. Check-in was simple, after which... More

I stayed at the Capella Washington D.C. Georgetown on Jan. 2, 2015 for 2 nights. From the moment I waked in, I felt I was coming home. It's a small boutique hotel with 49 specious rooms from the lowest category to the highest category. It's very clear that they were thinking about every detail when they designed the hotel rooms...
