Wonderful hotel close to all attractions....museums/monuments are all within walking distance! Rooms are clean and large...staff was amazing and extremely quick with any request! Restaurant manager and his staff were beyond accommodating when we ate breakfast with my young daughters! Only negative is no indoor pool after a long hot day of sightseeing...

I booked a large room with 2 queen beds and a pull-out sofa, but when I checked in, I was told my room was oversold. They put us in a small room with 1 king bed and a pull-out. I was not happy since I had booked the room I wanted weeks in advance. They knocked $30 off my bill... More

I look forward to staying at this hotel because it has such charm. For me it is also very convenient - right around the corner from my office and a few blocks from the Washington Mall. This was my second stay - but it will always be the first place I look to stay when I am in the DC... More

Nice large hotel in the heart of DC. This hotel offers the digital key service which I used for the first time and loved it; kudos to Hilton for using this technology. The room size is good and overall clean. The bathroom needs updating; paint is peeling from the ceiling and the walls have some rust. Staff are friendly and... More

My daughter and I visited Washington DC this past weekend. We stayed at the Capital Hilton. The staff there provided excellent and friendly service. The location was great - close to two metros. There were only two things that I could see improvement on. The carpet in our room was filthy and damp, so much that we always walked around... More

The Capitol Hilton is a quality hotel, which is conveniently located near the White House. It is close to the Farrugut North and West Metro Stations. Rooms are fairly large, clean and up to date. Staff is friendly and courteous. Recommended!

A Hilton is a Hilton, so what matters is its location. This one is in a great location, very central yet easily reachable from the airports. The room was clean and comfortable, the restaurant more than adequate, with nice breakfasts and friendly service. Walking distance to Georgetown: always a nice destination.

This is an older Hilton in the heart of DC just blocks from the White House. The staff was very nice and helpful. It was a very busy summer weekend and I felt they handled all of the guests respectfully and helped make sure we had all we needed. I would stay here again on my next trip to DC.
