Great Hotel! The Capitol Hilton is in a great location three blocks from the front of the White House. This hotel draws a significant business crowd who are in town on Federal business. Most folks are suited up for work. This hotel is close to everything in downtown DC.

Went to Washington for a conference and stayed in the hotel where the conference was being held. What a great choice it turned out to be! The hotel was great, very quiet, no street noise and only a few blocks from the White House and the National Mall. We were able to walk to most of the sites. What a... More

Good location, average room provided with view of central atrium (read, opposite block and concrete roof); expensive breakfast with little on offer, $15 to use the gym???? That was the deal breaker for me - if you are a 4 star (alleged) property, you should be providing gym access for free ... I wouldn't stay again.

I had to attend a meeting in DC and so I dragged my hubby along as we love DC. Imagine stepping outside the doors of your hotel and looking to your left only to see The White House about three blocks down! That is what can happen if you stay at the Capital Hilton. Granted --- I didn't have to... More

I just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. I stayed here because I attended a conference that was held at this hotel. Other than the hotel being about 2 blocks away from The White House, this hotel has NOTHING going for it. Upon our arrival it took us over 40 minutes to check in...for about the first... More

Just finished a three night stay at this hotel for a conference. The location is fantastic- only a couple of blocks from The White House with plenty of restaurants in walking distance. That's about all this hotel has going for it. The amenities are lacking and the hotel "nickels and dimes" you for everything. To start, the room is merely... More

I choose these hotel because the conference I was attending was being held here. I figured it would be easier and I could hang out with friends at the lobby. BIG mistake.

Every staff member I encountered was genuinely friendly and helpful. Valets, bell hops, front desk staff, housekeeping - I never had a bad interaction during my week here! The location is convenient for most things downtown but there is not much open after business hours. Even finding dinner was a toss up unless you took a short taxi ride. Hotel... More

Very comfortable Westin in the heart of downtown near the White House and government offices. Nice bar off the lobby. Very good for meetings. Meeting rooms are downstairs, so no windows, but staff are very helpful. Rooms are pretty standard, but the beds are really comfortable with down pillows and duvet.

I stayed Monday and Tuesday Nights for meetings. Overall it was a great stay, a cross between luxury and typical Hilton. The staff was friendly and the lobby bar staff was excellent! The location was perfect for my meetings and for sightseeing it is spot on. I will certainly stay again.
