I was so impressed with this hotel on my visit to Washington DC. Check-in and out service was seemless. The staff at the door were super friendly and the amenities impressive. I stayed in a smaller Queen bed room and was very happy with a nice couch, desk, huge TV, and impressive bath. The Executive Lounge serves a great help... More

No complaints. Nothing special. A fine hotel and a good location. Construction at the corner makes street-crossing a little dicey but it's not the hotel's fault and it's manageable. Staff is very friendly. All in all, no surprises, predictable.

Came for a convention. Before I checked in I knew I needed to extend my stay. They had no rooms to extend my stay, but when I talked to someone the next day they did. they were great. Room was clean, plenty of space. Breakfast was simple but good for a quick bite before meetings. Overall, excellent place. Location great... More

Perfect location for walking to the White House! Cozy cozy beds. Nice flatscreens, clean room! Bathroom door lock was broken but otherwise fabulous! Valet service was perfect, yet mandatory. One texts the valet and the car is there in a jiffy! Nice bar w tvs for a night cap and Starbucks is right across the street!

I stayed at the Capital Hilton, because of its location for my birthday weekend. I was very convenient for me, not having to worry about parking in dc and being able to walk to most places for dinner and drinks. The staff as always were polite and very helpful. The hotel is nice and the guest room is very comfortable.

Although not the fanciest hotel in town it is very nice. Staff was attentive and gracious. Wonderful location, near the Mall and WH. Room was immaculately clean, all the usual pleasant toiletries and amenities. Room was blissfully quiet even though it was a corner room overlooking two streets. I expected to hear a lot of traffic, but didn't hear anything.... More

Stayed at this Hilton in October of 2014 and again April 11-14, 2015. It's a nice old, carefully remodeled Hilton with an interesting history (see small exhibit on the way to the elevators.) The staff this property does have seem dedicated but one begins to wonder if they are always understaffed. From delayed check ins during heavy weekends during peak... More

Stayed for a couple of nights one weekend in April. The location is very handy for many tourist attractions and there are many eating places nearby. I think it must be about time for a refurbishment as the corridors and rooms were well past their 'sell-by' date. However, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff are generally...

Great location, excellent rooms, terrific breakfast buffet and the staff is very eager to be helpful. The rooms however, are not cleaned. The towels are replaced, the beds are nicely prepared but the bathroom was cleaned only twice during our 10 night stay. We complained when we arrived that the toilet had unflushed tissue in it. A very nice man... More

The Capital Hilton is a classic example of an elegant old hotel. The fact that it is very old is not an issue - the place is still very nice. Wife and I were there for one night on business. Our room was comfortable and spacious. The only negative was that it was at the back of the hotel very... More
