The Capitol Hilton was the "home base" for our Girl Scout getaway in DC. The proximity to the White House, monuments, museums, Metro, and restaurants along with the accommodations allow me to easily recommend this hotel to others looking for a nice hotel in DC.
Upon arriving at the Capitol Hilton, we were greeted by curbside staff. VERY friendly and welcoming. Checking in was quick, easy, and friendly. One of our rooms was ready, so we were able to bus our luggage to that room.
ROOMS: we had 2 rooms, each with 2 double beds, desk, large flat screen TV, closet, and bathroom. The rooms were comfortably decorated and clean. Don't expect lavish decor, but it is tastefully done. We requested a refrigerator which incurs a $25/stay charge. The refrigerator was sent to our room immediately - no waiting! Great customer service! The beds were very comfortable, pillows were in good supply (4 per bed plus an extra in the closet), and the sheets were soft. The bathroom is small'ish, but comfortable for one. Bathrooms included granite countertops, magnifying mirror, hair dryer, and standard tub/shower combination. Our room had two windows - great for light and a feeling of spaciousness. A coffeepot is also included in the room.
DINING: our room rate included a buffet breakfast in the hotel restaurant. It was very nice with well prepared food. Cereal, oatmeal, fruit, potatoes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, breads, made to order omelets, waffles, French toast casserole, juices, and more were included. The normal rate is $22/person; however, our room package was well worth the price and much less than purchasing breakfast individually. The food was served warm-hot and was good, overall.
PROXIMITY: this hotel is close to the White House (2 blocks), monuments, and memorials. There are also several restaurants nearby, including Starbucks and Fuel (a pizza place). The Metro is also very close - just 2 blocks away, which makes this hotel accessible to many DC attractions and neighborhoods.
PARKING: valet parking is available for approximately $50 per day. Our room package included parking; however, we added a tip as is expected. The valet service was fine; although, it does take some time (approximately 30 minutes) to get your automobile on a busy day. We were told in advance that there would be a delay, and appreciated their honesty.
SERVICE: every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful, giving us their undivided attention. Upon check out, our bill was incorrect; however, it was handled quickly to our satisfaction.
Overall, this was a great hotel in a great location in a great city. I recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable room with comfortable appointments in Downtown DC.
