Poor service and the room was disappointing. Service desk was not welcoming and rude. I requested a non-smoking room and got a room (whether it was non-smoking or not) someone clearly had been smoking in it. I went back down to the front desk and politely asked to request a change of room and the desk staff fought me on... More

Two blocks from the White House and two blocks from three different metro stops (one red line and two blue/orange lines) made the location of the Capital Hilton hard to beat. Our room overlooked 16th St NW and I was worried about noise at night, but it turned out to be no problem. Pros: Location Great breakfast buffet Quick turnaround... More

We wanted to spend a long weekend in DC visiting the area and museum with our 9-year old. I chose this hotel for its location and also because I'm a Hilton Silver Honors member, I was hoping we may get good service and amenities. I also paid extra to be placed at the Executive Level. At check in, I was... More

While the Hilton Dimond desk did a great job keeping e booking over the phone, I can not say I was happy with a look wait checking in. Only one staff person on duty, will many people waiting aft weather cause flights to cancel. The hotel appointment could also use some updates.

I have stayed at this hotel several times. The front desk staff is phenomenal. Always helpful. In addition the restaurant staff is also very nice. The price on this hotel fluctuates from 200 to 325 throughout the year week by week. The rooms are a bit dated but clean. As mentioned the location is perfect for seeing the White House.... More

This hotel was built during WW II but remains fresh and well-maintained. The rooms are generally spacious, but a bit dark and poorly lit. In general excellent Hilton-class beds, furniture and bath. The breakfast area, food, selection and service from the staff was excellent. We also tried out breakfast in the "Executive Lounge" (aces is restricted) and the selection and... More

I have stayed at this hotel three times, most recently in May 2013, and I do like it despite it being rather large and rather old. Most everything in the hotel has been updated except for the elevators. The rooms are nice sized and I had no complaints over the restaurant service or food. There is a very nice workout... More

Very Good location as it is just a block or two away from the white house and all the meuseums. There is a great cafe called Brown Bag and a few good eating joints in the area. But the rooms were very basic and not like a luxury hotel which was a huge disappointment.
