“Good small botique Hotel”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

It is a small boutique Hotel. Personalized service. Clean and Neat. It is a no frills hotel. They do offer free coffee and snacks through out the day. They did also provide us tickets for couple of museums. Parking is expensive. Valet parking is 48$

We had drinks and lunch several times on the terrace overlooking the canal and it is just very peaceful and lovely! You are in Georgetown but away from the hustle & bustle. The food and service are wonderful. We live close to Georgetown so haven't stayed but I have had family that have stayed and loved it.

We decided to do a one night "stay cation" as we have teenagers and having a hard time getting out of town. Loved every moment from our first step in the hotel. We were greeted by Luis, who made us feel like rock stars. Loved our room, small but everything one would need. Think suites bit bigger but perfect size for couple. Roof for guest only so enjoyed a drink on roof before dinner and went back again after dinner. Best thing about this property is everyone works together and pitches in and gets it done. I have been to other hotels where all the suits do is walk around. The suits at this hotel, work. It was busy when we were checking out at valet as were having an event, the GM then started helping, moving cars. This is the sign of a top hotel when no job is to small and the staff works together. Looking forward to next night we can sneak away!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

We are accustomed to staying at 5 star hotels, including the Ritz Carlton, so we were pleased to discover a new luxury boutique hotel had opened in Georgetown. Over the course of 3-4 stays (since opening in 2013), we have experienced a significant improvement in Capella's quality of service. This past visit, we stayed 5 nights. Alex, the general manager, has done a remarkable job making the Capella a true gem of a luxury hotel. From the moment Alex personally greeted us at curbside through our departure, he and his team ensured that all our needs and requests were fulfilled, with enthusiasm, spirit and efficiency.
Luis, the lead concierge, seemed to have a connection with every establishment in the Georgetown area --- whether it be restaurant reservations, driver, or other personal services, he always made it happen. Other bellman, including Ian and Ricardo, were also outstanding.
Fruit and pastries in the morning were always fresh and delicious. We appreciated having access to complimentary sodas and water throughout the day. Turn-down service always included a wonderful treat, whether it be a freshly baked cupcake or novel candy. Rooms were clean, contemporary, and well designed. Even though the rooftop bar wasn't open due to a private event, the waiter setting up enthusiastically took our order and brought drinks and snacks from the bar downstairs. And having separate secure access to the hotel was comforting. We cannot recommend Capella highly enough and hope we can return soon! Thank you for providing us with such a great experience!

Room Tip: This past stay we had a Georgetown Room. The tub was wonderful, great for relaxing. Love rooms ove...

We stayed at Capella for 2 nights in February while awaiting the birth of our first grandchild at George Washington Hospital. The staff was so inviting and most helpful, especially after learning the purpose of our visit. Bellman Ian made us feel so special from re-packing the cooler of frozen food we'd brought along to haiing a cab for us in the middle of the night when we wanted to get to hospital quickly. Upon our return after our granddaughter's arrival, he asked us how she was doing each time we saw him and surprised us with a beautiful gift for the baby upon our departure! It is very obvious he enjoys his job; his efforts were SO appreciated.

The hotel itself is beautiful. Wonderfully comfortable room with gorgeous bathroom. The restaurant is outstanding as is the bar. We would like to return when we can enjoy not-winter weather on the beautiful rooftop deck/bar/pool. I would recommend Capella for business travelers as well as visit for a luxurious night/weekend away from home.

We booked this hotel having seen food reviews on trip advisor.
When we arrived we were delighted with our deluxe room. It was huge with an amazing size bathroom.
The service and everyone in the hotel were charming and very helpful.

The restaurant was great. Also the position in Georgetown was the best.
Would certainly return

Room Tip: Wedding see the other rooms but we had a deluxe canal view room. But to be honest the canal view was...

Capella is our usual hotel accommodation in Singapore (Sentosa Island) and obviously we opt for Capella Washington during our visit to Washington in April 2014. The verdict - we even wanted to extend our stay (originally booked for 3 nights) on our last morning however we had already pre-booked our train tickets and accommodation back to NYC. The hospitality of their staff was fantastic from the doormen/drivers to PAs (personal assistants who multi-task), we felt very pampered by them. Capella hospitality is simply the best!

Hubby and I loved Washington much more than the Big Apple NYC, particularly we were so happy to have chosen our accommodation in Georgetown, away from the usual 5-star hotels in the heart of the city, though Georgetown is only mere 10-15 mins drive away. By the way, this is a hotel for travellers who don't mind using the cab as there is no nearby train station in this area. We found Georgetown very quaint area, it is sooooo charming, Capella as the best location. We could simply do lovely walks along the river next to the hotel and nice photo shoots in the surrounding areas (one should consider wedding photos here!). They have nice gourmet supermarket just round the corner, you can find anything Japanese or Italian, and the famous Georgetown cupcakes (which we didnt get to try because the queue was super long every day!). Capella is also walking distance to the harbourside where there are heaps of cafe/restaurants to choose from. JF Kennedy's former place of residence is also walking distance from the hotel, oh man, the houses are most charming, we even wish we could retire in Georgetown (have to earn/save our millions first)! Listen - Georgetown is a must and if you dont mind splashing on accommodation, Capella in Georgetown is so worth it! Trust me!! Thank you Capella for a very memorable stay - we shall be back!

Room Tip: Any rooms facing the river
