This hotel centrally located if you would like to walk around the White House. There are nice restaurants and coffee shops around. People at the hotel are friendly but room furnitures are a bit old. There is free internet access in the lobby

The first night, there was a teenage party next door. We had to call the security twice in the middle of the night. We asked to switch room the next morning. The lady at the front desk assured us that they were cleaning a different room for us & would be ready by the time we came back at night.... More

The hotel is 5 minutes walking from the White House, it is unvaluable. It is easy to walk to the White House, then to the Memorial, and to the Potomac river, where you can sip a beer or eat food in the restaurants close to the river. The level of the room is medium, but the personnel is very kind.... More

We had a few small issues, but the customer service was excellent and they took care of the situation immediately! We had a fun time in DC and the location was great. I would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed here, off and on, for 25 years. Not been here in a while. Checked in and found out the room was not what I reserved. Called front desk. They kept putting me on hold and bringing in someone new. Got tired of that game and went down to the front desk. Finally got me the right room.... More

Booked the capital Hilton as a part of a conference package - decent rate compared to other DC hotels. Thought for sure I'd booked a single king bed, but when I got there all they had was 2 doubles - fine. The experience was ok. Had one cleanliness issue but other wise decent experience - just there for conference so... More

The location and the price was outstanding. Everything was top quality from the lobby to the room. Other than a bit of construction going on outside, it was very quite. Will absolutely stay at the Capital Hilton on my next visit to DC.

Good location, within walking distance to restaurants and sight seeing location (White house, etc.). Front desk personnel is of foreign nationality and because I am severely hearing impaired, it was very difficult to understand them. But I've stayed here countless times in the past and the rooms are always comfy.
