Capital Hilton
Ranked #97 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

This hotel just seemed tired. The lobby and public areas were plain and in many aspect old-looking. The room was small and outdated too. I expected more for the rate and it being a Hilton and especially its location as the lead Hilton property in DC. The people were nice, it was clean and comfortable but just overall ok.

Stayed: June 2013, travelled on business

Stayed here for only one night.
Check in was fast and easy. The front desk staff was very attentive.
Room was large and clean. Plenty of storage space if needed.
King size bed was comfortable and sheets were not like paper.
Toiletries were excellent and plenty of hot water.
Check out was simple through TV. Receipt of charges was slipped under the door waiting for me in the AM.

The Capital Hilton is a great hotel with a great location. The guestroom was very comfortable with great amenities. The Breakfast Restaurant had a great buffet with great service. Shujaat, the Chief Concierge was a delight. He was very helpful and thoughtful. He was very personal and attentive. I was in line waiting to ask few questions and seeing him interact with other guests was very enjoyable as well. You could see he went above and beyond with everyone, including us. He offered great recommendation, even without asking.

nice hotel ; great location ; some hall noise in mornings; staff very helpful ; room was a little hot one night and air would not come on. I was told the outside cool air kept the room air from engaging ?

The friendly staff arranged for our early check-in (after an all night red-eye flight) and we had a room waiting for us with a nice view of the the area in front of the hotel. I think our window is in the photo shown with the hotel name. This was a very short business stay and everything was smooth from beginning to a seamless check out. Most of all, every staff member, from doorman to bartender, was terrific and professional. We would stay there again without any hesitation. HOWEVER, it was odd to us that nobody knew how to make a Spanish Coffee.

I chanced upon a really good rate for this property and took it having read the good reviews. Hilton does not disappoint. It's probably not as new as others, nevertheless, the rooms are clean and spacious, with nice amenities, and friendly staff (front desk, housekeeping, bell desk). I was fortunate to have been given a corner room so I had a good view of 16th Avenue. The hotel is also around the corner from Starbucks, two blocks (about) from the back of the White House, about a block a half from the National Geographic Society, and near CVS (the 24-hour CVS though is about 2.5 blocks away). What is also convenient about this hotel is its accessibility to the Metro's Red, Blue, and Orange lines. I took the Metro to and from Washington National Airport and took just one train to the McPherson Square station.
Just a quick note, for those of you who need a refrigerator, they didn't have one in my room but you can request one to be set up in yours during your stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room if you can get the same. And on the higher floors too. Quite far from the elev...
