“Excellent Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Being tourists and visiting DC for the first time, we had a lovely experience at the hotel. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful and the rooms were also clean and spacious.The small kitchenette in the room was well stocked with the required utensils for a small meal in the room. The best part is the location of the hotel which is very close to all the major tourist sites, so it was very convenient. Check-in and check-out were also very smooth. All in all a great experience and definitely value for money. Strongly recommended by us...

Hello Uday2612,

Thank you for staying with us and for taking a moment to post a review of your stay here on Tripadvisor. It's great to read that you had a lovely experience with us. I'm glad you enjoyed the kitchenette. We actually have tons of rooms with full kitchens, as well. I hope you enjoyed all of the "touristy" stuff in the neighborhood, as well. Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it.

Sincerely,

Donte Johnson

A great location! This hotel has two buildings and I definitely think that the second building, where breakfast is, has much nicer rooms. The first building does have a wonderful business center and a huge fitness center. Unfortunately, the hotel does not have a restaurant but there is a good selection a block away. We used the metro to go everywhere and it was only a block away.

Hello Judy M,

Thank you for staying with us and for posting a review. I find it really interesting when I hear the preferences of our guests when comparing one of our buildings to the other. I suppose it's a matter of what each guest is looking for and which elements of the experience are most important to them on a personal level. We're proud to offer such variety in our room types. Thank you for sharing your feedback. We truly appreciate it.

Sincerely,

Donte Johnson

This hotel is in a quiet neighborhood and is within walking distance of the Library of Congress, the Capitol, the Botanical Gardens, and some of the museums on the mall. It is also only a block away from the Metro and is very near some good restaurants on Pennsylvania Avenue. The rooms are large and comfortable and staff are very welcoming and helpful. I will be back and have already recommended this hotel to others.

Green Features: The hotel follows environmentally friendly practices like offering ice water rather than bottled water, and passing the slightly used soap on to people who can make use of it.

This is my go-to hotel when in town for business (walking distance to the SCOTUS, Library of Congress) and every stay has been trouble-free and relaxing. The rooms are large, clean, and quiet. The front desk is pleasant and accommodating. The neighborhood is quiet, residential, and safe, and since my last visit, several new restaurants have opened around the corner on Pennsylvania Avenue. My one complaint is that the breakfast room is way too crowded to be pleasant -- literally SRO at 7:15 a.m.-- and it looked like a very carb-heavy selection. Management: make the experience less like a sale on Black Friday and offer a more healthy and balanced selection, please!

Room Tip: When travelling alone, I prefer rooms in the main building rather than the annex.

Hello N2NY,

Thank you for staying with us and for posting a review of your great experiences. I'm glad they've consistently been enjoyable ones. And this review has been pretty awesome to read. We greatly value and appreciate feedback from our guests.
So now, as I fight through mental images of stampedes of discount-crazed shoppers trampling one another over Tickle Me Elmo's (do little ones still love these?) and 42" LED televisions that read your mind and record the shows you want before you know they exist, I've arrived at the question of our morning continental breakfast service. In lieu of hot protein items ("the man" won't allow us to serve hot food), we offer hard boiled eggs, sliced deli meats and cheeses, and yogurt. These are indeed served alongside a slew of delicious, carbohydrate-packed continental breakfast items. Speaking of packed, we have got to figure out some way to make breakfast less popular with our guests. It would cost us less and create a more seamless experience for guests.
With the rooms refresh just around the corner we're planning to review our entire continental breakfast service. This will likely result in some changes. I look forward to hearing feedback on the new offerings.

Sincerely,

Donte Johnson

I have no complaints at all about this hotel! Every staff member was incredibly helpful and the rooms were spacious and newly updated! Plenty of sights to see within walking distance and bars, restaurants and Starbucks are right around the corner! Will definitely stay here for all future Dc trips!

Hello Stephanie M,

Thank you for staying with us and for posting a review here on Tripadvisor. I'm glad you enjoyed our awesome neighborhood and our spacious rooms. The next time you come by this way, while Capitol Hill will presumably be equally as awesome, our rooms will be even better (unless you're planning a return visit in the next couple of weeks). I'd love to get your feedback on the "New Look" Capitol Hill Hotel. Thanks again for your review. We really appreciate it.

We have stayed at this hotel on 2 prior occasions and been quite satisfied. However, that was not the case for our recent trip. The kitchenette in our room was not clean and the sheets were threadbare. Additionally, there was no room information provided regarding hotel amenities or checkout time. When we brought these matters to the attention of the lobby staff, with the manager present, we were told that the hotel was undergoing "changes." We were also told that items such as checkout times were provided with the room keys...Evidently, our key packet "slipped through the cracks!" It appeared that no notations were made regarding our concerns.
This hotel can do better...We hope to see an improvement and a return to good service.

Hello colonialparkway,

Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience with us. I'm terribly sorry to hear that it wasn't and outstanding one and furthermore I'm disappointed to read that we were less than empathetic when you shared your frustrations. I agree that we're capable of much better and I look forward to doing so on your next visit. Thank you again for posting your feedback. We appreciate it.
