D.C wedding trip

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

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-saving tip: Not Applicable

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!

Good location, but short sale!

I found this great deal for the DC Hilton just blocks from the White House. Though the location and staff were great, the room was a MAJOR disappointment! To say the room was small is an understatement! I feel that the room description and online photos in no way matched what we received. Would I stay there again, possibly, but it wouldn't be in my top five choices.

Good for the money

Overall, you get what you pay for. While this isn't the most glamorous hotel in Washington DC, it fits the needs of a budget-type of family. Nice and clean, but rooms could be a little larger.The best thing is the location. Right in the heart of the city with all major attractions within walking distance.

Great location, very friendly staff.

Arrived early and they were very accomodating. Allowed us to check in and get started with our 2 day visit. Great location to DC attractions-The menu could have had some kid friendly items.

Capital Hilton Do not drive there!

I have paid less for more. $40.00 a day parking fee for your valet parked car. Be ready to tip a lot. $12.95 a day for wireless computer hook up which is free at other places. Hint: you can get e-mail for free by hooking on to the network of the hotel across the street. Hotel computer staff can not walk and chew gum at the same time.

A short walk of one block you will find several places which serve a good cheap breakfast or lunch. They close around 5:00 pm
