Hotel location was great - literally 2 blocks to the White House! Close to transit also- able to walk to transit to other sites like the Capitol, Washington monument etc. Rooms were clean, no complaints. Hotel staff great. Parking expensive but alternatives nearby for day parking etc. Did not eat in hotel but many alternatives very close by - Starbucks,... More

Visited and stayed a number of times. Great restaurant and best location in DC. I suggest getting a room away from the lifts to save you from the weddings and big party crowd which arrives late at night all drunk.

Perhaps Hilton policy is different in the US, we have only stayed in the Waldork in NY previously. Surprised to be asked to pay for alcohol in the Exec Lounge and also pay for a buffet breakfast. A very limited choice free breakfast was available in the Exec Lounge. The Exec Lounge felt more like a Hampton than the standard... More

Front desk manager Mr. Ken Ryan had a horrible attitude. He gave us an occupied room with a "do not disturb sign" and I was pretty sure people were having sex in there. When we asked him about the issue, he did not apologize at all and did not offer any kind of explanation, even if I complained about his... More

Hotel was in a great location. Very clean and extremely friendly staff. Digital Check in is a big plus. Having valet parking was very helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the DC area

Accommodations were comfortable and roomy. Food was very tasty and fresh although on the expensive side as is the case throughout D.C. If you'll need ice ask for... More

Capitol Hilton was a very good stay. We spent 6 nights here and never experienced a single problem. Every encounter either with house keeping , front desk , servers and bellmen was enjoyable. David in the Statler lounge went out of his way to entertain and include our grandchildren during dinner. If you choose to stay at this, to me... More

My wife and I spent a couple nights here recently and enjoyed it very much. The hotel was very nice and close to everything in Washington DC. Highly recommended if you visit the Washington DC area. It was a very humbling and educational experience!
