Loved the hotel and the location was perfect. Staff was helpful and courteous. Great room. Walking distance to Union Station and local transit. Great viewof the Capital from room and hotel. Visit the Dubliner for dinner!

I really want to give this hotel 4 stars but I only stayed overnight so do not have enough basis to give it such a rating. I did have a comfortable stay and the room I occupied was spacious and clean. The meals I had were average (dinner room service and breakfast at the coffee shop). The breakfast buffet is... More

I stated for 5 nights in a very comfortable room that had efficient a/c, ample space and a quality bed. The sofa however had seen better days and had worn fabric on the arms. Equally the bathroom was spacious with a quality shower & a wide, non clingy curtain. My room looked out onto the inner courtyard and was very... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the convenience to everything. We walked to most of the museums and attractions, and if we wanted to go further out we were near a few metros. In DC, if you plan correctly, walking is your best bet because there is so much to see and do every few steps. Near the White House as... More

Upscale, not cheap, but very nice and very accommodating. They seem to respect and appreciate the business traveler... and some of the staff actually remember me from year to year. (OK, I stand out... but still...). Valet service is VERY slow. Near many of the downtown DC sights.

I had a problem with the heating system but overall I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The hotel is in the center of town where you can walk to shop, sight see, and eat. A lot of eating places and good food. I was there for business and plan to take family on a trip. I would stay there... More

i gotta say we don't seem to share the same idea of what a suite is. a disjointed room circling around the back of the emergency staircase is not my idea of a suite. and getting basic soap and shampoo is something i had to call and request daily, or speak to housekeeping in the hallway. best thing about the...

The Capitol Hilton is so close to everything that you ever want to do in DC. The rooms are big and the service is excellent. There is a Catholic Book store near by that has daily Mass and the gym at the hotel is great.

This was my first stay at this hotel, built in 1943 as a Statler. Hilton has done a great job of upgrading and maintaining this National Historic Landmark. Service by front desk staff was excellent and I was assigned a corner room away from elevators and overlooking the street, which I enjoyed. Now I know what to ask for next... More

The staff was very attentive and professional. Theresa Thomas at the front desk was stellar and just because of her I will be back.Rooms were clean and roomy and never had to wait on an elevator which is great when attending a huge conference.
