Two blocks from the White House and walking distance to the mall. Easy to get a taxi or walk to the metro station. Large rooms with comfortable beds and nice furnishings. The hotel is not new but very well taken care of. We were there for five days for a conference and used it as a hub for dinners out... More

There were 5 of us travelling, myself, my husband, our 5 year old daughter and my parents. We stayed just the one night. From all of our stays at Hiltons we never seem to have any problems with the king bed rooms, always nice with nice views, but as soon as you ask for 2 beds the rooms seem compromised.... More

We didn't spend much time in the hotel except for sleeping as we were sightseeing but it was clean and the air conditioners worked really good so it made for a good nights sleep. Very comfortable and not disappointing. It is very conveniently located.

We were in DC for a wedding with several couples and the wedding block was at the Capital Hilton, most of us are typically Marriott loyalists but we decided to stay with the pack and try the Capital Hilton. Our stay couldn't have been more perfect! From check in to check out, the staff was so welcoming and went out... More

Perfect location, 250 meters away from the White House, this nice Hilton is well kept and convenient for a tourist stay in Washington. The lounge deal is also a thing to be aware of, 50 dollars for 3 breakfast and lounge access is perfect

Conveniently located in the heart of the city. Perfect business hotel! The restaurant serves decent food, but my colleagues had to wait till 5pm for the bar to open, so in the afternoon, if you want refreshments ...well go somewhere else! The staff at the front desk were extremely helpful, as we had a french speaking delegation, and there was... More

Located two blocks north of the White House. With 550 bedrooms it was opened 1943 the building is not unattractive. The bedroom was spacious but kitted out with slightly dated fixtures and fittings with a USA feel to them. Mixture of Business and tourists. Bar/ bistro in the reception served good food. Check in was quick and efficient. Good value... More
