Great location, rooms are a little dated. It was very nice being two blocks from the White House, but we were slightly disappointed with the pricing of some of the amenities. We requested a refrigerator and were charged $15 a night for something we received for free at other hotels.

I was on a tour group and was at this hotel for 2 nights. The location is the best asset this hotel has to offer, only 3 blocks to walk to the White House and there's a metro stop just a couple blocks away, so it's very easy to walk to or take the metro from the hotel to all... More

We were very happy with our choice of hotel for our first visit to Washington. The staff were friendly and helpful at check-in and were always courteous whenever we needed to know anything. The waiter in the lobby bar and restaurant was so lovely throughout our stay. Our room was a spacious L shape with a seating and desk area(no... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during our family trip to America, the hotel for us had no faults, rooms were very clean and we had no problems, the best thing about this hotel is its location, about 5 minutes walk from Capitol Hill, my sister room even had a view of the White House.

It's great arriving at a hotel after a long flight and being met by a smiling and accommodating staff member. Theresa Thomas at the front desk couldn't have been nicer. She was extremely helpful at check in and very willing to provide assistance and information, all in a very friendly, yet professional manner. It is these touches that make a... More

If I had a choice I would not stay here. Its a big business hotel. Not intimate, not a place for tourists, too expensive for what you get. The KING room is nothing to write home about. However it is very clean, generally in good condition, and well located if you want to go to the White House. Not impressed... More

I stayed at the Capital Hilton for several nights on a business trip. The hotel staff was excellent, and my room and the hotel public areas were well kept and attractive. The hotel is very well located and is a good value. I will definitely return to the hotel on future trips to Washington, D.C.

Stayed in this large hotel for a conference. It is very comfortable - rooms are large and feel newly refurbished; the bathrooms feel very clean. They provide a coffee maker (one cup style) and an ironing board. Bed was comfortable though the rooms felt a little cold - needed to turn on heating. The breakfast was not included in our... More

Built in the 40's, and feels and looks like it. Lobby area is huge, but not especially useful, with the only bar being part of it to all intents and purposes. Our room was fine, very clean, pretty large, and great bed and linens. It was at the back of the hotel, so had a view of another building's air... More
