I'm a Hilton Gold member and have stayed at a number of Hilton's in the past year. The positives: nice lobby, friendly staff and good location. The negatives: the quality of the rooms is extremely low. We had two doubles on the "executive floor." One had a mattress that seemed to be very old as it was extremely bouncy. The... More

My son and daughter in law were married at Dahlgren Chapel of Georgetown University. We chose this hotel due to the proximity of our rehearsal dinner venue at Old Ebbitt Grill and the Daughters of the American Revolution Hall where the wedding reception was held was also nearby. We reserved a block of rooms at the hotel for our guests.... More

I am a Hilton Honors member, so I always try and stay at a Hilton brand hotel. That being said, I have experienced many many Hilton's in my day. This hotel is in a great location for walking, catching a cab to different sites in the city. It is also within 2 blocks of 2 separate Metro subway stops, so... More

The hotel offered large rooms with comfortable beds. To my surprise there were no mini bar in the room. The overall standard was decent and the staff at the check in was very jolly and friendly. The location was very good close to the metro and all the sights. Wifi was included which was very appreciated.

If you want to visit the sites in DC, this is a fine location. It's a 7 minute walk to the White House. The hotel is worn down ... our room had scratches on doors, and the main hall smelled of mold. The shower faucet leaked and the drain plug was broken. Quality was low for the cost we paid.

The hotel is in a great location only a few minutes walk from the white house, the room good but a bit tired and would have needed some refurbishment in the near future but still acceptable. We paid for an upgrade but shouldn't have and I wouldn't recommend others doing so as I don't believe the extra cost merited the... More

This hotel is located approximately 5 blocks from the White House. It's Presidential Ballroom is top-notch. The Capital Hilton was the perfect place to rest after seeing everything Washington, D.C. has to offer!

Had a great experience at the Capital Hilton. Excellent service, excellent room, great restaurant available. Only minor drawbacks were distance to Capital Hill and some street noise. Overall, it was a great place to stay and I would recommend. Very close to the White House.

We loved the hotel. Only complaint would be queen beds instead of double beds and having a refrigerator in the room would be nice. Otherwise Metro stations are close and the white house is 2 blocks away. Nicest hotel breakfast ever!

Hubby is a Hilton Diamond member and when we checked in the receptionist was delighted to keep telling us that we were getting an upgrade. But the room was deluxe king, which is what we'd booked, and actually smelt (and felt) a bit old. The concierge and bell boy were both great. The hotel is very well located, walking distance...
