Great central location but I thought I'd been cast into an unused part of the hotel when trekking to my room. Excellent experience at check-in but the walk to my room was along corridors that need an update of their décor and past a point where a number of folded tables looked like they'd simply been stored and forgotten about....

Enjoyed our stay. Pillows could have been better. Staff was wonderful. Location was good. Executive lounge worked for our family. We would stay here again. Great location. Great access to our needs. We were traveling with our daughter who has special needs, the staff treated her like a princess which we appreciated.

Having stayed at Hilton hotels for many years, this has to be one of the worst. While the lobby and public areas are ok, the rooms and exterior are tired and rundown. It does have a good location-- about 10 minutes walking from the White House and a couple blocks from two Metro stations. As long as you're just there...

We stayed at the Capital Hilton, because it was close to The Hamilton where we were seeing a concert and I'm a Hilton member. The hotel stay was fine. We were on the 14th floor, room 1428, with a view over buildings in the front of the hotel. Our room seemed large with two windows, a king, and a smallish...

Nice hotel build in the 1940s. Good condition and nice place to host events. Although there is a gym associated with the hotel, you have to pay a fee to use it. Rooms are well furnish and are up to date. Attened second conference there. Excellent location and services.

We stayed at the Capital Hilton for 4 nights over the Thanksgiving weekend. The staff was absolutely wonderful! Everyone was so friendly and helpful! We had some trouble getting our Uber app to work and the gentleman working the front traffic showed us what we were doing wrong and helped us get the car. Every time we came and went...

I've reviewed this hotel before when on business trips - but as a Hilton Honors member, I've been receiving wonderful offers for off-days weekend stays. We did this last year and again this year. The service, great location and low weekend rates make for a wonderful inexpensive getaway.

Excellent trip. Worst valet service ever. Over an hour wait time after calling in advance for my car. My rental car was damaged by valet. I loved the location. Close to metro and many restaurants. Hotel room and food was average.
