Elegant comfort close to the sights

The room was an amazing surprise: there was a mini-kitchenette with granite counters, plush sofa and huge ottoman, large-screen HD t.v., 2 large picture windows, rainfall shower, comfy bed set with 800 thread count sheets that were like BUTTAH! There was a little street noise, but hey, it's D.C. The staff was very nice and efficient. I would stay again.

Capital Hilton stay on 9-28-2010

The bathroom was very small. It did not have a small refrigerator that makes refreshments more accessiable. We could not get any ice because the machine was always empty. They did not offer a complimentary breakfast which always makes your stay easier and more enjoyable. The restrauants inside the were very, very expensive. My advice to anyone that is not rich, you may want to find a different hotel. You are paying for the name Hilton here. We stayed at a MicroHotel on the way that offered more than the Hilton.

Wonderful Hotel

Had a great time there. I was able to take advantage of the wonderful workout facility. I didn't like that it was an extra $15 charge to use the facility, but it ended up being worth it.

Have a nightcap at the top of W hotel. Great view of the downtown and some monuments. Make reservation to insure a good seat!
