Hotel poplicies include non-negotiable fees for early arrival/let departure. Free wifi in the lobby, but they don't tell you that if you call from your room; they just advise you to charge $15/day to your room for wifi. My particular room overlooked a maintenance yard that was very noisy in the middle of the night. Room smelled a bit. Good... More

We stayed at the Capital Hilton for a family wedding. A couple of days before our stay we had to cancel due to a health issue with my wife. At the last minute, my wife wanted to make the trip. When we arrived the staff honored our original reservation and rate. They even gave us a corner room that had... More

Conveniently located in downtown DC. Room was spacious, modern and in great shape. Loved the co-located upscale Mint gym though beware- entry costs $15 unless you're an Hhonrs member of silver level or higher

As a Hilton Honors Platinum member, I chose this hotel specifically for the amenities (I was attending a wedding and all other guests were staying at the Jefferson hotel down the street). The lobby was nice and the room was fine, but I was shocked that they were charging for drinks in the Exec Lounge! The lounge was brand new... More

The hotel is clean and convenient. Rooms are average sized and don't have refrigerators. Hilton honors gold breakfast is deficient and ended up eating in restaurant instead. Nancy and Sang are great servers in the breakfast restaurant. Parking is expensive at over $45 a day. Overall great experience because of location and service.

As you can see I only post here when its well warranted. I travel to DC nearly every week and have stayed here many, many times. The changes made to this hotel now make it less than adequate and just plain uncomfortable for frequent travelers accustomed to certain amenities. They have moved the exec lounge to the circus-like first floor.... More

The hotel staff I encountered were unhelpful and uninterested in customer service. Wi Fi was not provided in the conference rooms even with purchase of in room wifi, which I find unacceptable. The room was fine and very clean.

The hotel staff was very helpful and the rooms were very clean. The continental breakfast in the Executive lounge was very good (probably the best part of the stay). There was some noise in the hallway that we could easily hear and the rooms were a little small. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

I attended a conference in early February, and was very impressed with the staff. Front desk staff Sheri, Theresa and Steve were always so helpful. From restaurant recommendations (and they were spot on) to taking care of small issues, they went above and beyond in courtesy, friendliness and helpful information about the surrounding area. I also wanted to call out... More
