mostly enjoyable

A good comfortable hotel, staff very helpful. However we were disappointed to learn that wi fi was only available in our room at an extra cost of 18 dollars per day! Otherwise one had to go and sit in the hotel lobby with dozens of others. Not satisfactory in a hotel of this calibre!

Great for my purposes....

I was in DC to hit some government offices, so this hotel put me in walking distance of everywhere I needed to go. I was also surprised just how close some great eating and drinking was just up 14th street. The day charge for valet parking was higher than I expected but overall I was quite satisfied.

Cork Wine Bar had some amazing food, it's about 3/4 of a mile from the hotel, and right down the street from the 14th street location of Ted's Bulletin (get a milkshake....just do it)

DC Nov 2014

This hotel was recommended by a contact through work as a good business hotel with a good location close to sights and the metro and we had read some mixed reviews before arriving for our 4 night stay to celebrate my 50th birthday, all we can say is we had an absolute brilliant time in Washington and from check in to check out the hotel was fab. As it was a celebration we booked a suite which was excellent value for money compared to prices in NYC & Boston and although our room wasn't ready after arriving from our 4hrs train journey from New York it gave us a couple of hours to have a look around DC and Isobella on reception was extremely helpful and friendly as were all the staff on reception and at the hotel from the doorman, porters, room service and cleaners to the bar staff and when we did get to our room we had the surprise of a bottle of fizz to celebrate my birthday with, a lovely gesture. The room was huge with a separate sitting room and two TV's and two queen beds and nice bathroom and bonus of in room tea/coffee making facility and room service breakfast although a little pricey worth treating yourself to at least once. Very comfortable feel in the reception area and staff always friendly and helpful and the bar food was very nice and a nice place to relax after a days sightseeing. Location two blocks from The Whitehouse and 15 min walk to quite a few other fantastic sights, memorials and museums and if you want only 5/10 mins walk to get the metro. We had a 10.30pm flight back to the UK so a late check out sorted with reception on our last day just finished off our stay brilliantly. Overall we loved Washington and our experience was greatly enhanced by the great time and relaxing feel we had at the hotel, we can't wait to go back again and stay at The Capital Hilton Washington, not as I initially thought a good business hotel but a great place to stay for a holiday/vacation as well.

Business Man's Friend

Capital Hilton received me kindly and served me promptly. The room was very nice & an excellent place to work & sleep. This was the second leg of a tiring journey & the helpful porters & bellmen were ready when I got there. The coffee shop across the street was great and the nearby restaurants were great. The Hotel chefs made great food and the view of the White House was directly down the street. It was a short walk to the Metro Transit system. Great trip- can't wait to go back.
