Excellent stay

We stayed for three nights at the Capitol Hilton and it was great. The location is great, close to the White House and other DC highlights. There are a lot of restaurants nearby as well as places to get breakfast or lunch. The room was quite large, with a comfortable sofa, desk and an excellent king size bed. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. In short, it's the perfect place to stay for people who like to visit DC for sightseeing.

Washington Hilton 12/26/09

Yes it is close to the white house, but there were no restaurants open except in the hotels and burger king. $40 charge (that I was not told about) for overnight parking in a hotel you are staying in is ridiculous

Pricey

When i arrived there it was fantastic until i found out about the parking situation, it cost 20$ just to get 2 hours of parking, and the parking outside was very limited and my car got broken into right next to the hotel. Inside the hotel, it didn't have a microwave or a fridge. I was charged 7$ for each phone call i made. When i came in during the day, the housekeeping made my bed, but didn't change the sheets or the towels. Overall i had a better time at a motel than this hotel.

Excellent value for $

We were very happy with our stay. The room was clean and the bed linens & pillows were very comfy. Normally we would use the fitness equiptment, but this trip did not, so cannot comment. The location is super-about 2 blocks to the White House and many attractions are walking distance. Would not hesitate to stay there again next trip to D.C.
