“Housekeeping”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

My housekeeper Sonia Williams was excellent. I arrived on 11/3 and will be leaving on 11/7. She was friendly and did a fantastic job with my room. Most of the staff are incredibly friendly.

The overall hotel is a bit tired but they do a nice job. The location is outstanding - three blocks from the White House.

Room Tip: The hotel does not have very good views in many of the rooms. However, excellent location.

Very nice hotel and friendly staff. Executive longue was decent - breakfast was ok, not any hot options for HH room. Very close to the Metro and in a good area of the City. I will stay there again. Rooms were clean - but my bathroom was small.

The capital Hilton is the best hotel in Down Town washington, DC
It is only one block from White House and also close to other attraction as well.
Hotel Hospitality and cleanliness is as per Hilton's standard

Room Tip: Rooms on south side are larger and quiet

My girlfriend and I only spent one night but the service we received was great. The hotel was easy to find the the personnel who greeted us was very nice. The staff were very helpful and the valet service ($45) was well worth the price and convenience. We got a great deal of $130 for the night. Although this is an older hotel, it still has lot of charm. The room was very nice and roomy. We would gladly stay there again.

Decent size room. Bathroom was a bit small especially with two people trying to navigate around, but we managed. Location was best of all. Within walking distance of the White House and several monuments. Would stay again.

This stay was nice. The hotel rooms were incredibly quiet and I have no complaints about the hotel. Parking was very expensive via hilton -- $47/day for the valet service. I opted to park at a nearby garage for the weekend instead. This stay cost me nothing -- I utilized Hilton Honors free night vouchers. The location is outstanding. You can see the White House just outside the front of the hotel.
