We spent 3 nights in May and could not fault this hotel. Beautiful lobby, attentive and helpful staff, great room, fantastic location - what more could you ask for!!! Special thanks to Xavier on the concierge desk who changed our room with no fuss whatsoever. A fabulous stay.

Don't stay here! This hotel is looking worn. Worst of all it my room smelled moldy and musty. The hotel is definitely in need of a rehab. Not a good value for the high price. It's location, if you are going to visit the Capitol or congressional offices is quite remote. Otherwise it's not too far from most museums. I... More

Overall a good hotel but in a great location. Nothing special about the hotel, rooms are about the size and quality you should expect from Hilton in a location a couple of blocks from the WHite House. View of my room was horrid, not even a courtyard but that didn't matter much

This hotel is centrally located to the Whitehouse, great restaurants, and metro. Staff is friendly and have good knowledge of the local scenes and how to get around. Rooms are adequate - bed and pillows were amazing! Room rates are steep in June and it seems like everything is extra. Overall good experience. This is our second stay and would... More

The hotel and room was clean and nice. The health club and spa attached to the hotel was excellent, Hilton silver and higher members get to use it for free. Walking distance to White House and two blocks away from two subway stations. Only not so good thing was the parking- 40 plus tax a day--but not too much more... More

Great location in D.C. We had a rental car as we had driven over from Williamsburg, VA but we turned it in as soon as we got to D.C. which is good because the Capitol Hilton will charge you $40 a night for parking. We took a trolley tour which picked up right outside the hotel. This is a great... More

Comfortable and clean 2 bedded room. Unfortunate view of the roof of one of the buildings, not much natural light in the room from the windows. TV was positioned strangely and difficult to view from bed. Bathroom was large and clean. Plenty of electrical outlets in the room and decent lighting. AC was nice and cold and wasn't loud. Room...

This was a stopover on a trip we booked at the last minute getting a great deal on hotwire. I was a little leery given that I had never used this service, but our party was completely satisfied. We arrived in very late. We knew about this ahead of time and emailed the staff. They were accommodating and able to... More

If you're going to rely on the public transportation system in DC (and you should - parking and driving here are no fun) this hotel makes a good home base. It's convenient to three metro stops on two different lines and very near stops for two of the simple to use Circulator bus lines. It's also very short walking distance... More

I recently stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend. We were staying only one night, arriving early on Saturday and leaving on Sunday. We arrived at 9 AM not expecting to be able to check in, but we did. All staff was wonderfully helpful. Would recommend this to anyone. Location alone would make it a great stay, but so much...
