Overall great family Hotel. Great location close to public transport. Some rooms are small. Booked a double room for four nights. Initially we were given a small room, which was not adequate given we were travelling with kids. On raising the issue with front desk they moved us to another room, immediately, no problem. Second rooms was perfect, large double... More

I had a business trip and booked the Capital Hilton. The location is great, just a block away from Metro connections and a short walk to the White House for sightseeing. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel for anyone traveling to Washington DC.

My wife and I stayed at The Capitol Hilton for a weekend visit with my sister-in-law and nephew. We chose the hotel based on a good weekend rate, for the DC area. We also chose it because of its close proximity to The Whitehouse and other attractions. From reading other reviews the rooms are small so be prepared. As with... More

This was my first time staying at this property. I was in town for a weekend with a friend to visit the zoo and sightsee. As a Gold Hilton member, I had access to the executive lounge for breakfast in the mornings and an evening reception. The staff working the executive lounge were friendly and attentive. Our room was clean... More

Our first trip to DC was enhanced by our wise choice to stay here. The hotel is only two blocks from the White House, plus walking distance to other tourist attractions, and walking distance to the subway (Red Line) and buses for the rest. The hotel is really lovely, and the staff was delightful. They made every attempt to go... More

Despite the other reviews, i had a good experience there. Room was good and clean. I just thought the bathroom are a little on the small size, but that is something i can live with. I would recommend serving a complimentary water bottle, as this is a small courtesy and would be appreciated.

We were traveling with two young children and booked a double queen room. Primarily so my husband could sleep in bed with one child and I could sleep with the other. Upon check-in we were told that the double queen rooms had all been sold and we were given a room with one bed and a pull out couch. We... More

We have stayed in Hilton Hotels around the world (including London, Tel Aviv and Cairo), but this one was disappointing. Breakfast was lacklustre and pricey. The room was old fashioned and small and included plastic shower curtains, which I have not seen for many years. On arrival, we were told that our reservation had been cancelled, but on production of... More
