The location of this hotel is fantastic-right up the street from the White House and in a decent neighborhood. The lobby is gorgeous...everything from the gym to the bar to the lobby bathrooms were large, elegant, and spacious. The gift shop had a great selection but was insanely overpriced (almost 4 dollars for a granola bar that you can buy... More

We got this hotel on hot-wire, and it was an incredible deal! The room was very beautiful, and the service was awesome. When we first checked-in we noticed a faint smoke smell in our room and then saw cigarillos outside the window (we were on the second floor, by the second floor roof), so we called and mentioned it so...

We had a room that looked out on the street. Noise level was so loud we could not sleep until 1:30AM. Car horns, sirens, people yelling all night and there is insufficient buffering --- curtains do not cover the windows. Parking is pretty much valet only and it is the typical D.C. $38 for a night. Drinks at the bar... More

The hotel was very modern, beautiful decor, a couple of blocks from the White House, it was easy to get to with valet parking, the staff were very helpful and although we had accidentally booked a king room they had no problem providing us with a room with 2 queen beds right away at no additional cost. The common areas... More

I've been at the Capital Hilton a couple of times, my latest visit a few days ago. While I love the property's location and the friendliness of the staff, especially the front office, I think the housekeeping is a real issue. Its so difficult to get even basic room make up done since they're so short-staffed. Otherwise a great hotel... More

I was so pleased to find out that we were walking distance to the white house. The hotel was nice with a spacious room. The only complaint I would have is that the double bed was the smallest I have ever slept in. Other than that lovely hotel.

Good hotel. Well maintained. Ideally located for visitors who want to walk the Mall and be close the DuPont Circle. Reasonably priced but maintains it's accent. Sometimes it doesn't take 200 characters to describe an experience. Brevity has its advantages!

Loved the high ceiling of the lobby Good location close to the back of the White House - CVS store just opposite, restaurants around the area. But room was a little old. The room safe was wobbly.. It is also not near the main hop on and hop off sightseeing bus routes.

Stayed here over the weekend. There were a total of 3 of us. The room was small, but expected due to the urban location of the hotel. But the bathroom...was tiny. I felt like if I left the door open I had to step over the toilet to get in the shower. Other than that....everything was up to date. The... More
