Hotel's Favorite
My wife works remote from home but we wanted a little change in scenery and decided to come to DC and work from the hotel. We are so glad we picked the Hilton Capitol. It’s an older hotel but well kept. The restaurant and bar was closed because of COVID, but you have plenty of other options within walking distance. But they do have breakfast take out options. But what makes this hotel stand out is their staff. Everyone of them stand out and always greeting us coming in and going out. True professionals and they always make you feel like you are part of their family. Theresa Thomas was especially someone who stood out. Whenever we had any requests she always went up and beyond to make sure they were taken care of. She was always so pleasant and you could tell she loved her job any always wanted to make sure guests felt special. I don’t give many 5 star reviews, but the Capitol Hilton and especially the staff are deserving.

Dear Hans M., Thank you for your review of our Capital Hilton. Our staff works hard to deliver outstanding service. It was a pleasure to read that you enjoyed your visit and that you were impressed with our impeccable hotel. Enjoying the charm of our hotel, its history, and being so close to the White House and so many Washington D.C. attractions and dining experiences, certainly makes our location enviable. We were happy to be a respite to alleviate the tedium that sometimes sets in with remote working. We will certainly pass on your gratitude to all our colleagues with a special thanks to Theresa for looking after you so well. We await your return in the near future! Regards, Stefan M., GM

Very clean and the staff are very accomodating. And this hotel is walking dustance to White house. Their free breakfast is ok considering most if DC is closed. I will rate it although I encountered one male agent in the evening I think his name was Desi. He was dismissive and not really friendly. I asked if they have water because the closeat storw CVS was only open until 6 that night. When I repeated my request he turned around and told me in an irate tone “i’m already getting your water right now” so I apologized. When I asked for extra water he told me that just two bottles per room. In that interaction he missed the opportunity to wow the guest. He could have went above and beyond my expectations by simply stating “we don’t usually give out extra water but knowing that the closest store is now close i’m giving you extra water for yoir overnight consumption”. But he pointed me to vending machine just to dismiss his interaction with me. But other than this incident the rest of the staff were superb especially Theresa and Kenny who promptly amswers my chat requests and the housekeepers who are ready to provide service. I still rate this hotel 10 and beat location in DC.

Excellent staff at front desk, Frank was very helpful. The General Manager was around interacting with guests and taking feedback. Nice hotel. We had a wonderful stay. Waiting for all services to reopen. It would be beneficial if there could be a list of various restaurants close to the hotel from where we could order since hotel restaurant is closed.
