Really well located within a few minutes of the White House and a reasonable walk to many other well known DC sites. Staff were friendly and really helpful - went out of their way to make things easy and help us out. But rooms and lifts are old and a little tired - everything works but they look like they... More

The Capital Hilton is true value for money. Ideally located within a couple of easy walking blocks from the incredible White House and very close to DuPont Circle. Check-in was quick and extremely warm and friendly. Nothing was an effort for any member of the staff of this hotel. The Concierge was so helpful and advised us of the best... More

We stayed here on a family vacation for 7 nights. The hotel is large and spacious, as was the room. Staff were also friendly and helpful. It is ideal for the tourist, being a mere 2 blocks from the White House, and one block from McPherson Square subway. We were able to get around with ease. We took the option... More

On 12/30 they managed to keep 8 of us close together, very helpful at check in. Excellent location, everything at hand and a good bar for a late drink after exploring the city night life. Rooms were spacious and clean. Overnight parking is pricey at $47.50 but that's just a DC price I guess

Great location for accessing the downtown area with a short walking distance to enjoy the feel of the city. Super friendly staff the "Welcome you back" and hustle to get a taxi if you need one. Thick walls made the room quiet, even in the city.

After staying for 1 night at the beginning of Dec 2014 this is a typical business travelling hotel. We booked our room after finding it heavily discounted and at that price the service we received was very good- however I would be reluctant to pay full price for this hotel. The room was clean and well laid out, if a... More

I was travelling with my 11 year old son and this review reflects my and his opinion. The best point about this hotel was the location. It was a 5 minutes walk to the White House and a short distance from there to the Mall and museums etc. The staff were friendly enough, especially the bell service team who were... More

It was an interesting stay. The concierge was helpful, the room was relatively clean (a few random hairs on counter), no WIFI in room-and hotel is like a crypt, so getting service was nearly impossible. Food was crazy $$$$. But the strangest thing was the showerhead, it was terrible. The shampoo came out of the bottle faster than the water... More

Hotel is located in what appears to be more of a business area but with good access to metro stations. It is also only a short walk away from the White House and is surrounded by a number of restaurants so no problem looking for things to eat at all. Rooms are good sized although certainly have seen better days... More
