5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

This is a great hotel to stay at while in DC. Great for business or leisure trips. The staff is superior, especially Mr. Steve who may welcome you to the hotel at check-in or for breakfast in the executive lounge. Walking to the White House and many of the monuments is easy and quick from this hotel. The restaurant is excellent, but it's also very close to many other DC restaurants and venues.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

I stayed for two nights at the Capital Hilton. It is very well located close to museums and other attractions downtown, and close to Metro. The staff were very helpful. I had a nice corner room but on the whole the rooms were not exceptional, pretty much standard level for a Hilton. This hotel is particularly attractive if one has a Silver or higher Honors card. For one there is a nice lounge on the 10th floor for card holders, where one can have a nice healthy breakfast or cold drinks at other times. In addition, one is given free access to the Mint health club which is definitely a cut above the usual hotel workout facilities with good weight lifting equipment and multiple treadmills, stationary bicycles, stairs, etc. The hotel also had a reasonable weekend rate. All in all a good value as long as one does not have to park at $42/night.

Very nice hotel. Great staff. Nothing bad to say at all. Room service was FAST! The bar was pricey, but food was excellent! Concierge could have saved our feet a bit by getting us on the metro, but all in all a very pleasant experience.

Older hotel but recently freshened up. Rooms are small but nice. Good lobby bar. Short walk to a few metro stops. Walk to White House.

Great hotel in every way. Location is convenient to tourist and business sites. It's also a short walk to the metro rail. Service is outstanding with plenty of extras for diamond members. Great concierge desk to help with your most challenging needs.
