“Great stay 2 blocks from the White House”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Spent 5 nights here, had a corner room with 3 windows, street views and bright and airy. Double settee, single chair, dining table, small kitchen area, fridge, plenty space in bathroom, very comfy big bed and huge TV. one of the best rooms we have ever had! Front desk excellent and helpful . Restaurant manager at breakfast was very switched on. Ran a very efficient staff who were extremely polite. Easy access to metro and 2 blocks from the White House and the tour bus stop just another block away.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room

Booked the capital Hilton as a part of a conference package - decent rate compared to other DC hotels. Thought for sure I'd booked a single king bed, but when I got there all they had was 2 doubles - fine. The experience was ok. Had one cleanliness issue but other wise decent experience - just there for conference so I wasn't looking to be pampered.

The location and the price was outstanding. Everything was top quality from the lobby to the room. Other than a bit of construction going on outside, it was very quite. Will absolutely stay at the Capital Hilton on my next visit to DC.

Good location, within walking distance to restaurants and sight seeing location (White house, etc.). Front desk personnel is of foreign nationality and because I am severely hearing impaired, it was very difficult to understand them. But I've stayed here countless times in the past and the rooms are always comfy.

I was a little disappointed in the service at this hotel. With the exception of a security guy no one was particularly friendly. My boyfriend is a Diamond member and one of the perks is supposed to be automatic upgrades. We've stayed at many hotels and never had to ask for it before, but at the Capital Hilton, he not only had to ask for it but then the front desk agent then had to check with her supervisor.

Upon reaching our room we were immediately met with a collection of dirty glasses that had been left outside the door from the previous guest. We didn't check in until almost 10pm. There's no reason for dirty dishes from the guest before us to still be lingering outside of our door that late. The glasses remained there until the next day and were finally gone when we returned in the afternoon. On the plus side - it was very easy to find our room!

The room - which was a junior suite - was ok, it's an old hotel and it's a city so it was a good size based on those factors but in addition to the dishes outside, it seemed housekeeping could have stepped it up a notch inside. Some of the furniture seemed a little askew as if the previous guest had moved it and no one had moved it back. One thing, that granted was really small but makes a big impression, was that the toilet paper roll was half gone (totally fine) but it wasn't in a triangle or anything - not even a torn off in the right place but ripped haphazardly, so it just seemed a little less welcoming thinking about whomever had been in there before us.

My opinion really "crumbled," if you will, when I was sitting on the couch and looked down to find the largest collection of crumbs ever assembled between the couch cushions. It was a pull-out and looked to have "clean" white sheets on it and the pillows weren't overly stuffed so I could see it without even pulling the pillows apart. It was disgusting. Thank goodness we didn't need to use the sleeper sofa.

There were other things that just seemed off as well. If you don't travel a lot you may not notice this stuff as much but we travel a lot and as they say, the devil is in the details.

This hotel was a pleasure from the beginning to the end. The bell staff and front desk staff was attentive and helpful. The rooms are very large, and very comfortable- the biggest rooms I've been in in a DC hotel. The only downside is a very small bathroom.
