We arrived after a very long journey with a long transfer and delay at Newark. Check in was was very quick and efficient.
However, on entering the small lift we didn't think it looked too clean. The corridor to our room was dark and dingy and the doors we passed had dirty scuff marks on them - definitely looked as if they could benefit from a "lick" of paint! We were beginning to wonder if we had made a very good choice.
After a good nights sleep in a very comfortable bed we saw the hotel in a very different light. Our one bedroom suite was large, comfortable and very clean - some of the furniture looked as if it was brand new. We had a LOT of luggage and really appreciated the huge wardrobes to hide our things away!
The staff were always very pleasant and helpful and had infinite patience when we were having problems accessing the Internet.
Loved the lounge area adjoining reception with its comfortable seating and hot and cold drinks always available.
Breakfast was in the building next door - not a problem, just a step away. Whilst it could get very busy and the choice not enormous it was perfectly adequate. Having breakfast included in the room rate was a big bonus.
The location could not have been better - very quiet and attractive. All major sightseeing attractions were in walking distance, and a good selection of restraunts nearby. We booked a visit of the Capitol Building before we went and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Our onward flight was an early morning one from Dulles so we had an airport hotel booked for the night. We knew this would be impossible by local transport so spoke to reception. Not a problem for them - they organised a car for us. What a car it was! Lovely comfortable limo with a real gentleman for a driver. We agreed a fixed fare which I am quite sure was less than we would have paid for a taxi especially as the hotel was a fair way past the airport. Fantastic service!
Overall we had a VERY enjoyable stay at the Capitol Hill and if we should ever return to this very impressive city would look no further for a hotel.
What a shame Trip Advisor does not allow for a four and a half star review. However I could not give five stars because of the lift and corridor issues. It is only these areas that need a little "sprucing up" to make it very nearly perfect!
