I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Capitol Hill Hotel. The hotel is in a lovely neighborhood and was easy to get to the Metro. There were activities you could walk to- Capitol Building, Library of Congress, & Union Station are where we walked. I enjoyed that it wasn't located in a really touristy area. The hotel offered a continental... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week and I have to say, the location is second to none. It is close to cafes, the Capitol Building (obviously!) and the metro. The breakfast and flat-screen TVs are great! In other areas, the hotel has a lot to work through and I am confident that those aspects will improve very soon.... More

My family and I were very pleased with our stay at the Capitol Hill Hotel. I research before I booked it and everything was great. Then, I looked at the reviews right before we went and was so apprehensive about staying here. Everyone who worked here was very nice, courteous and helpful. We had two rooms and both were very...

The Capitol Hill Hotel met every need I had for my week of training at the Library of Congress. The staff were amazingly courteous and quickly solved any little problem (ice maker) without fuss. I had a delicious breakfast each day of my stay and was quickly on my way to the LOC 1/2 block away. Breakfast was a choice... More

I just got home from staying here for almost a week. There are things to like about this hotel and much to dislike. Pros: Centrally located about 2 blocks away from the Capitol building and Supreme Court, with easy access to Metro (1 block away) to get to most other parts of town with ease. Staff was very polite and... More

Thank you for your review. I think you'll be happy to hear that we have already begun to work on some of your suggestions, and we will be making more changes in the weeks to come. We have contractors onsite for the next couple of days installing full length mirrors in all of our guest rooms. We are adding some... More

We stayed here while in Washington DC for the Fourth of July celebrations. We chose this hotel because it was close to the National Mall and we could just walk to and from the celebrations without dealing with the mess on the Metro due to all of the people. We checked in without any problems and found a friendly, helpful... More

In few words: its closeness with Capitol Hill and the major sites in DC, makes worthwhile to withstand the rudeness of front desk personel. They inform that rooms will be ready as of 15:00, but actually we got our room only at 16:30! Desk clerk was unapologetic.... Room itself was good, but far from a true " boutique" hotel, as... More

Thank you for leaving your comments about your recent stay with us. I'm so sorry to hear that the agent you spoke with was rude, and I will definitely address this with my team. Waiting for a room is bad enough, but to deliver the message with an attitude is simply unforgivable! I'm glad that you enjoyed our neighborhood and... More

We spent 2 nights at the Capitol Hill Hotel in July 2014. We arrived very early and was given a room immediately. Check-in was quick as we had prepaid. The room was spacious and clean with two double beds, a small kitchenette and a bathroom. The air conditioner worked well, bathrobes were provided and although the bathroom was small, the... More

I went in early morning to drop off a gift for my parents. Lobby looked shabby and the smell was horrid---as if no one took a shower for several days. Then I went back in the evening, the lobby smelled like train lavatory. It was so bad. Went up to my parents' room and was shocked to see how shabby... More

This is absolutely disappointing, and a little shocking, from start to finish. I have forwarded this review to my entire team for immediate action and can assure you that we have addressed completely any sign or semblance of the odors that you describe in your review, both in public spaces and in guest rooms. We take these comments very seriously... More

Beware of this establishment! Check your credit card for "fraudulent" charges. We did not receive the "suites" we paid for, did not have enough beds in the rooms as promised, and the elevator stopped working in between floors with students on it! What should have been an exciting field trip for my 5th grade students ended up being a nightmare... More

This does sound like a truly bad experience. I can only imagine that if everything goes perfectly, traveling with a group of students can be stressful, not to mention dealing with the things that you mention in your review. I am so sorry that things went so terribly wrong during your stay with us. I would be more than happy... More
