Vehicle window was smashed on the street less than 50ft from the front entrance, Garmin and some personal items taken. Hotel is reasonable and convenient to downtown areas of interest but it doesn't have effective security. Use valet parking if you stay here!

Old, bathroom in room not very clean as shavings were still in the sink from the previous occupant(s), saw roach on wall outside dinning area. Door to room took a crazy amount of time to close which I see as a security concern. No sleeping in as the trash truck comes early in the AM on the back side of... More

After a long flight, what you need is a welcoming smile, hot shower and a comfortable bed. Very friendly and helpful. Restaurants and coffee shops across the road. The White House is two blocks away! Whether you like walking or not this is a good starting point.

Location 2 blocks from the White House and 1 block from the metro, very easy. The lounge is entertaining if a little pricey. Bartender with 35 years in that postion was super. Concierge was also very helpful. Rooms clean and neat. Good resturaunts (Georga Brown's) in the area. Would recommentd. Room service good to (also a bit expensive though)

This was by far the best hotel we've stayed at in the DC area. Located near Dupont Circle and acess to the Metro subway, which takes you to all the monumets, buildings and sites of Wasington. Hotel has restaurants,cocktail lounges and public wireless internet sevice throughout the hotel

The Capital Hilton is very convenient to metro stations and bus routes, and lots of attractions and dining choices. I found the staff to be very helpful and courteous, and the room to be lovely, although my proximity to the Executive Lounge made mornings a bit loud as people went to breakfast. But being in close proximity to that made... More

Nice room (but nothing special). Front reception is friendly but not really personal. Location is very good (The white House is just around the corner). No breakfast included and the WIFI is not free (in 2013 that is a big no no). There is free wifi in the lobby, so I found myself going downstairs of times. No complementary water... More

I had been quite concerned due to the mixed reviews on trip advisor - but you cannot believe everything you read. We had the best time here - the hotel is in a fantastic location - with shops and great restaurants all within walking distance and close too. It is also near the metro station.
