The hotel is a typical Hilton, friendly front desk staff, acceptable rooms, decent internet, decent room service cuisine. This hotel is distinguished by the adjacent first class gym (connected to the hotel on the inside). The gym is open to Hilton guests as well as members who are resident in DC. There is a full suite a cardio equipment and... More

This has been my fav spot and still a great location with easy metro access. This visit was so disappointing, the ac in my room was hardly working. Stopped by the front desk to ask if someone could check it, the staff is always friendly and helpful. Got back and no change, no msg or anything. My room overlooked the... More

I would recommend this hotel to others. it is a clean and quite. The front desk service was professional and pleasant. Capital Hilton need to improve on working out the valet parking service during the check out time. other then that i enjoy the hotel. very clean hotel.

Ugh. I booked this place because of its close proximity to the white house . Since I had previously read that parking was $47.20 per night, we opted not to bring a car to avoid the unecessary charge. I think that even in a city, that charge is excessive. Upon check in, we were informed that our room was ready... More

Nice property. Very good location, large and legacy style lobby. Good gym, larger then many other hotels in Washington DC. The club lounge was average, had the basics.... Parking is only valet, but fast service 10 min on average.

I quite don't like huge hotels like this but our stay was nice. Rooms spacious and good bathroom with amenities. No minibar but nice efficient coffee machine. Vending machine and ice nearby elevator. Free wifi in the lobby but signal was mostly irregular. Pizza and restaurants around and 2 steps from the White House

Meh. There was no fridge in my room, making it hard to keep healthy food choices available. The air conditioner barely kept the room cool. It would heat up during the day and wouldn't get comfortable until about midnight. In the morning the cleaning staff would open the curtains and by the time I got back from work, the room... More

The hotel is located in the center of DC, near the white house. Idel location for exploring the city, both north and south of K St. Rooms are ok, clean, nice. They would also do in a Hilton Garden Inn, but as I said, they do. Executive Lounge is not as impressive as the one in the Hilton Berlin and... More

The Capital Hilton was by far the best hotel I've stayed in DC. I highly recommend anyone from out of town (or anyone returning home) to consider staying here. I didn't rent a vehicle during my stay, so accessing the Metro was my main priority when looking for accommodations. The Capital Hilton is conveniently located within 2 blocks of 2... More
