We did not have a good experience. First, the check-in process on a busy Friday afternoon was HORRIBLY managed. When we walked in, the line was so long and the lobby was so crowded that it seemed more like a hostel than a hotel. No rooms were available as of 4pm, despite check-in time being at 3, so we had...

Hello Cameron C, Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your feedback. I'm terribly sorry about the wait to get into your room and that we failed to get the room cooled to your satisfaction. Our Housekeeping Team fell behind and we needed to make some repairs to the air conditioning system. It's great to hear that the... More

Excellent location, walking distance to the Capitol, the Mall and the Smithsonian facilities. Two blocks from South Capitol Metro station. One block North up 3rd Street SE and down Pennsylvania Avenue towards 4th, there's several good bars (Hawk N Dove, Tune Inn) a liquor store if you want to buy a bottle and head back to your room. Walk West... More

I stayed here the weekend of Jan 19 2013. The hotel was nice, and neat, breakfast was good too. Everything was great until the valet brought my car around with a broken window. Someone had broken into my window. I was told that I should get my insurance to pay for it first because they don't know how long it... More

Hello Tee80, Thank you for spending your birthday weekend here at Capitol Hill Hotel last year. I'm saddened to hear that it wasn't a great one and I would've loved to have had an opportunity to discuss it with you. The safety of our guests and the security of their belongings is incredibly important to us. I started here in... More

We never did make it to the hotel. After checking room availability on the website, we purchased travel vouchers, That was our mistake. I had to call three times because I'd get disconnected after waiting 15 minutes for Reservations to pick up. Finally when I got to speak with someone, I couldn't believe how rude he was! Not only were... More

Just returned from Washington DC, and absolutely have to recommend this hotel. It is in the best location, especially if you have a budget. The hotel is only 1 block from the Metrostation which makes getting around a breeze. So easy to just walk down the street and hop on the train and go anywhere in the area. It is... More

This boutique hotel is a great place to stay. Service is splendid. Excellent deluxe continental breakfast. Very well located. Reasonably priced. Clean and comfortable. Guest laundry and pleasant guest lounge. Just a great place to stay for a short or extended visit with a small kitchen, fridge, microwave, etc.

Spent four nights here in a suite with a small kitchen and living room area. The bed was comfy everything else was showing its age. Never used elevator very slow, stairs were messy with debris due to construction. Breakfast included was average couldn't eat hardboiled eggs tasted old. The only reason I would return is the location, close to Capitol... More
