After having some embassy meetings in DC, it was time to check in and relax at the Capital Hilton. Though it was my first time there, both Frank and Philip Amponsem made me feel like I was their cousin coming home. We laughed and we chatted and I smiled all the way up the elevator to my room. My new home away from home. Thanks guys! Capital Hilton is my new go-to as my relationships with these embassies flourish. Glad you’ll be along for the ride Hilton!

The service was exceptional, starting with a wonderful reception from Theresa at the front desk, who went above and beyond to accommodate my party. The rooms are showing their age in some places, but the convenient location and very reasonable rates make this a no-brained for my next trip to DC

Theresa Thomas was very kind and helpful at our check-in. She provided us with information about the area, our room, and a few little much needed chocolates after our flight. The door staff and general main lobby staff was very kind and welcoming during our visit.

It started out right walking into a hotel on the national historic register, and only got better when we walked out of the hotel and down two blocks to the left and there was the White House. Staff were great, it has so much more character than a new hotel, at same wonderful comfy beds and bedding. We ate breakfast in the restaurant each day and they have amazing breakfasts. I tried four different menu items and was happy with each one and I am a foodie. Price was reasonable, a 20 minute walk to the Mall. Will definitely do this again when in DC.

The Capital Hilton was only two blocks from the White House. The hotel is located on Black Lives Matter street and in walking distance of the major iconic attractions: Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, WW Vet Wall, Smithsonian Museums and many restaurants. I was also able to walk to a Harvard university Watch party and take in the Harvard Yale game on the big screen. The staff was very pleasant and extremely nice. The hotel was clean and beautifully decorated.
