The Capital Hilton is usually my FAVORITE place to stay in DC. Clean, nice big rooms, excellent location, and even decent food (limited menu). But my last stay there was devastating. I arrived, unpacked, and went in the bathroom to place my toiletries. I noticed pubic hairs in the shower, but washed them down - hair can sometimes be tricky.... More

Don't know where to begin with the praise on this hotel. From our checking in (which was 10am) to our checking out (3pm) there was never an issue to accommodate us. We were exhausted after our overnight flight so the early check-in was fantastic. The front desk was extremely friendly and the concierge was incredibly conscience. The location of this... More

I drove to the hotel and the DC like most cities has a no left turn policy which was driving my GPS crazy. Parking is $42/day which is a bit pricey and it took about 30 minutes for the valet to retrieve my car. I am always irritated that expensive hotels charge extra for internet which is $14 per day....

Stayed there for business a few months ago, they were doing a refurb at the time, so the place didn't have a bar, which was unfortunate. You can see the White House from the main entrance, so it's ideal location for tourists. Struggled to find any bars close by though, went for a walk and got lost, so ended up... More

This was our first visit to Washington and we were really impressed with the Capital Hilton. Very close to major attractions. The hotel's public areas are spacious and decorated to a high standard. Our room was clean, spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Didn't have any problems with noise from the street or from other rooms. An excellent breakfast... More

My favorite hotel in DC. I've stayed here twice. Two blocks from the white house and a few blocks from the metro station so getting around is so easy. My only complaint about this hotel is the outragous room service prices, when I'm travelling / on vacation I like to eat and go. There's a starbucks around the conor and... More

Before I start my review I need to preface it by saying I had an awful experience here. That being said, my review and rating is not reflecting that, just the property itself. Because its still not a 1 despite my bad experience, just not as nice as other Hiltons. Positives: Great location, walking distance to White House, easy walk... More
