The staff at the Capital Hilton - in particular Theresa Thomas at the front desk - made a stay where I was coordinating things for 6 rooms and 9 persons, easy and relaxing. The facilities were great. The rooms were perfect. My only complaint would be the limited TV channel selection. Otherwise, well done.

My partner and I stayed at the Capital Hilton in September 2013. He's a gold member of the Hilton loyalty club, so we had an executive room. It was very spacious and overlooked 16th Street. Nice view, even if it was just of the street below. The staff were very nice, especially the concierge who seemed to do double duty,... More

Just enjoyed a very pleasant, one-night stay here. Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortable and staff was very friendly. This is a grand old hotel that has been well-maintained. No complaints whatsoever- looking forward to returning next time I visit downtown Washington. One tip for travelers driving in- park at Atlantic Garage right next door (1501 K Street W)... More

The service staff are excellent throughout. The rooms and amenities are good . The Executive Lounge is a very convenient and well maintained feature well worth the price . Would certainly recommend given the excellent downtown location

Its a great hotel, nice location, but the person who check us in was rude gave our room to somebody else and we needed to wait until 9 PM that the manager returned to get our room (and we're getting married the following day!). The manager was very nice and able to solved our problem but it was already 9pm!... More

I have stayed here before. The update to the executive lounge was needed and much nicer than it was before. The fitness center is really nice and the rooms are comfortable and quiet. The bedding is nice which I don't often find anymore. The staff went out of their way to make people feel comfortable too.

I paid good money to be treated in a rude manner. I checked in there was a problem with my company card. I was told because I was staying 6 nights they would send up a cop drink after the card glitch I was made to feel Like I had done something wrong. I was also contacted by another hotel... More

Extremely poor value for cost. Bad room service. Cold breakfast that took a hour and 15 minutes to arrive. I had to call them several times to remind them about delay and food was cold and without flavor. The restaurant is sub-optimal. Would not recommend hotel to anybody.

I stayed for 4 nights with my wife and young child while I attended a conference. Check in and out was a bit of a hassle since they couldn't figure out how to charge my business for the room and me for the incidentals. The room was an odd shape but larger than I expected. Internet was fine but as... More
