The service at this hotel is exceptional. Location is great and the rooms classic and stylish. The executive lounge is too small and very busy Overall my last two stays were exceptional. Downside. There is no 24 hour room service. For a capital city hotel not having late room service

Having been a repeat customer every year at the Capital Hilton, this classic DC hotel has finally lost its edge and doesn't seem to care. First, the room on the 4th floor felt like staying in a musty basement. The carpet was old and frayed, neither the remote nor clock worked, the room was equipped noisy air purifiers, there was...

Booked this hotel with my kids for a weekend at the Capital of the Nation. The location is just perfect, you´re right at the back of the White House so right at the middle of the National Mall and the Monuments. Being a Hilton all works as expected. The staff is efficient, the rooms are large and clean, you´ve got... More

The Capitol Hilton is centrally located, only 3-4 blocks from the White House. Its decor has a casual elegance. We enjoyed a spacious bedroom/sitting room. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were particularly impressed with the fine fitness center, its equipment, and the director who came in on his day off to help prepare a fitness plan for... More

I booked this hotel for a surprise 40th birthday trip for my wife. The hotel staff did a fantastic job welcoming us and making our stay the best of the year. Front desk and catering were great. The restaurant had a delicious soup and sandwich lunch. Room was spotless clean. We were close enough to walk to Capital Mall.

I enjoyed my stay here, the staff on check-in were superb and the hotel is nicely located (although the local metro station can be a bit scary with a lot of dodgy looking characters hanging about). PRO'S Good Location - White House is only down the road. Staff - Very welcoming Breakfast - Really nice, quick and efficient! CON'S Noise... More

Very friendly staff and excellent service. The concierge was courteous and kind, patiently spending time to help us planning our tour. Outstanding breakfast at North Gate with an amazing service - everyone was polite and extra helpful. Also tried dinner at Statler Lounge, a nice and relaxed atmosphere, good service and food. Everybody had a smile on their faces, awesome!... More

This property is very conveniently located in central DC. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The special asset of this hotel is the staff. 100% of our staff encounters we excellent. Smiling, capable staff was there to meet any need. Obviously management hires great folks and trains them well. We shall return.

Great location for DC but they charge almost $50 a night for 24 hr parking. Better to search online for better parking deals. Breakfast was about $25.for buffet, no WiFi unless you paid for it, and no one came to clean our room and bring us new towels when we stayed over night. When we brought it up during checkout...
