We stayed for 1 week in August. Hotel is just a couple of blocks from the White House, and conveniently located between 3 metro stops: Farragut North, Farragut West, and McPherson Square. Hotel is showing it's age, a little, but room was comfortable, and AC worked well - a must in humid August. Staff were accommodating. We took Metro here... More

Hotel is in a good location, access to metro stations. We walked to the Smithsonian museums (about 3/4 hour walk). Hotel is high price and they nickel and dime you on everything. Internet is only free in lobby unless you are a AT&T customer or diamond H Honors. You can rent a PC in the business center for $0.49 a... More

I WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN! Our confirmed room was not available due to it being "out of order" - per hotel staff, and the valet wrecked my car! This after charging a $40 per day valet fee! This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at, I will never come back here!!

Location was good and overall the Hotel was comfortable and most of the staff were freindly and welcoming. The Hotel is lsited as an Historic Property for DC being originally built in the 1940's and I feel or suggest that some maintenance is needed to pay repsect to this but understand it takes resources to do so. I would probably... More

My wife and I stayed here for the Canadian Civic Holiday weekend in August. Overall, the property is very nice and highly recommend it as it is within close proximity to the WMATA, restaurants and the White House: PROS: - In the heart of downtown --> literally 5 minutes walk away from Lafayette Square and the White House.

We had a great trip. The hotel staff was very accommodating and everyone we encountered was nice and friendly. Perhaps Michael, who reviewed this hotel badly because of being asked to quiet down should have thought of the people in the rooms around him. His review was one reason I chose the Capital Hilton, because I want a front desk... More

Our family (2 adults and a 10 year old girl) just checked out after a 2 night stay - our first visit from the UK direct to Washington. Although only a short stop over (to see the White House, Capital Hill, Lincoln Memorial etc etc) the hotel made us feel welcome and appreciated from the MOMENT we arrived. The concierge... More

Hotel is very nice. I was in room 963 which is very small. Small walk in closet and small bed that was like a twin. Other than that no complaints. Oh the bathroom was so small when you open the door, you almost have to squeeze between the sink and toilet to get in the bathroom. The ice machine is... More
