Meh. There was no fridge in my room, making it hard to keep healthy food choices available. The air conditioner barely kept the room cool. It would heat up during the day and wouldn't get comfortable until about midnight. In the morning the cleaning staff would open the curtains and by the time I got back from work, the room... More

The hotel is located in the center of DC, near the white house. Idel location for exploring the city, both north and south of K St. Rooms are ok, clean, nice. They would also do in a Hilton Garden Inn, but as I said, they do. Executive Lounge is not as impressive as the one in the Hilton Berlin and... More

The Capital Hilton was by far the best hotel I've stayed in DC. I highly recommend anyone from out of town (or anyone returning home) to consider staying here. I didn't rent a vehicle during my stay, so accessing the Metro was my main priority when looking for accommodations. The Capital Hilton is conveniently located within 2 blocks of 2... More

Great hotel central to anything and everything. With 2 kids under 5 this is the place to stay for convenient access to site seeing locations. The food is of high quality and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Stayed here last week. Hotel was spotless, bathroom was immaculate. It was close to tourist attractions and my client. I would recommend and stay here again. Had breakfast in their restaurant it was a little pricey but the staff were extremely friendly.

The Club lounge is rather spartan and does not really dazzle. Beverages were either warm, had an off taste, or were too limited. Snacks were limited as well and overall quality of food selection was not what you should expect for such a cosmopolitan area like Washington D.C.

The hotel room was spacious, clean and centrally located around the tourist sites and a lot of restaurants. The hotel restaurant is very pricey. The room did have a coffee maker and in room safe but does not have a microwave or refrigerator that most Hilton's have. In addition there is no free in room wifi which comes standard with... More

It seemed to be an older hotel than I would have thought, that said Hilton has done what they can to keep it updated. We had booked a Executive King for five nights and got upgraded to a Jr. Suite by using Hiltons upgrade if available program (i.e. agree to pay a little extra for an upgrade if it is... More

Our twin bed (2 Queen size beds) room was surprisingly large with 3 windows on a corner overlooking 16th street. we had no trouble with noise except for sirens during the night but it was not a major problem. Room was clean - no bar fridge. We were happy with location - yes, it is probably a 20 minute walk... More

This hotel is in an excellent location for the White House, museums and monuments as you are within walking distance, However the museums furthest away like the air and space are about a 45 min walk. The hotel itself was clean and tidy but it was strange there wasn't a fridge and also there wasn't a view from the window.... More
