An OK kinda place

Would recommend Fri, Oct 16, 2009
Staff was the best thing about the place. The rooms were small but clean. The area was kinda dull. Worst thing - they charged a HEFTY FEE for room service.

Shopping hint

If you want to shop or go out at night, this hotel won't work for you. On the plus side, it's a short walk to the AFL-CIO.

Capital Hotel good but not great

Would recommend Mon, Oct 12, 2009
Staff at the Hilton was helpful. The doorman was great as we drove down from Philadelphia and didn't want to spend $40 to park at the Hilton. We just left the car on the street all weekend and didn't pay a thing. The rooms are a bit tired and need updating which supposedly is underway. The hotel is in a great location. We walked to the White House and down along the mall. We had previously stayed at this Hilton in the Spring. DC was very crowded and we didn't get to do as much then. This time we went in the fall and we were able to get tix to the Washington Monument although you have have to get there around 8:30 or 9. The museums were busy but not overly crowded like in the Spring. We recommend the Newseum. We spent almost 5 hours there. Very well done and worth the admission price of about $19. We went to the Crime and Punishment Museum last time and that was also fun. The Smithsonian American History Musueum was a little disappointing as a lot of the contemporary Americana was not on display. We tried to go to the Bureau of Engraving in the PM but you have to line up before the 12:30 PM reopening to get in. Didn't make that one. We had a good and reasonably priced lobster dinner 9($18) at Clyde's in Chinatown. We also ate at Jaleo, a tapas restaurant, which was very good. I'd certainly go back there.

Money saver

Park on the streets for free on the weekend and take the Metro or walk.

Lovely hotel, excellent location.

Would recommend Mon, Oct 12, 2009
The Capitol Hilton is in an excellent location. We were walking distance to the monuments as well as to Dupont Circle. There were a lot of families there, including a "tween" conference which got noisy in the lobby at times but not really a bother. It was fairly affordable for its location. I guess my only gripe is that it's not as nice (read: fancy, modern) as some of the other hotels in the area.

Dining

Eat dinner at Circa at Dupont...excellent food and a perfect walk from the hotel.

The location of the Capital Hilton was perfect for sightseeing. Neighborhood was totally safe till 2am. Every employee was spot on nice and helpful.

OK for one night of business travel

Would not recommend Sat, Sep 26, 2009
Orbitz-recommended Super Shuttle transport from airport was as expensive as a taxi. Clients should be made aware of this in cities where this is the case. They charge for WiFi, a definite minus!

D.C wedding trip

Would recommend Wed, Sep 23, 2009
Capitol Hilton It would have been nice if the hotel manager had given us a package that was waiting for us when we first arrived because it had a good list of resonable restraunts.

Washington DC Gem

Would recommend Mon, Sep 14, 2009
Great place to stay! Easily located near all of Washington's destinations, especially the White House. We only stayed for one night because we had a lot of things planned in two day's time, but would love to come back! Only a few things I noticed about the room that I didn't like: there was freshly chewed gum on one of the window curtains, but easily removed with tissue; when we first entered the room it was extremely warm, and the air conditioning didn't really cool the room down much; there was a slight sewage smell coming in from outside through the A/C vent but later disappeared; and lastly, the shower curtain had no liner so the floor got very wet when we had to shower. Other than that, this was a wonderful place to stay!

Money saver

Plan everything before you go: destinations, subway trips, and time. This helped us to see almost everything in two days. Also, the subway is the best way to travel between destinations. You can buy an all day pass which is good if you use the subway many times in one day, or figure out how many times you plan on using the subway, calculate the distance costs, and by farecards with that amount. We saved nearly $30 by doing this!
