Two blocks from the White House but away from hustle and bustle. In walking distance to mall / museums, all tourist activities, 14th street restaurants, short ride to Georgetown, U street. Large hotel but did not take away from individual service.

I had the pleasure of staying for one night here in Jan 2106. The property is clean and the staff was very pleasant. Just what I expect from a Hilton. I ate at the North Gate Grill for lunch and breakfast and food was excellent. My one and only complaint was the temperature of the room. No matter what I...

Decent hotel for the price but a little dated, needs a face lift. Other than that it was a nice stay; convenient to sightseeing, polite staff. Definitely worth it if you can get a good price. I checked in on-line but when we got there they didn't have the room I chose that had 2 queen beds so they upgrade...

Incompetent staff made our stay the worst stay at any Hilton, worldwide. The staff are rude, dishonest and shun blame and responsibility whenever they can to make the problems of their own incompetency go away. The staff create a problem then make you feel awful for asking them to fix it. I will never stay at another Hilton again. Initially,...

We drove in from a family visit in Asheville and we're tired. We were greeted with smiles and warmth. The location is perfect. It is an older hotel that reminds me of the Waldorf Astoria in NYC. The elevators were fast. We will make this our go to from here on

It was a real shock to have come to an such an outdated hotel, when the expectations for a Capital Hilton were quite high. Especially after seeing their prices. The location is the only good thing about this. Our room had lot of stains and a "funny" smell.

I guess all the Washington, D.C. "operators" are out of town during the Christmas/New Year period, which means non-business travelers can find some amazing bargains. I stayed at the Capital Hilton in what amounted to a small suite (sitting room, bedroom with two queen beds) for a shockingly small amount of money. The hotel is superbly located, a couple of...
