Wrong Room and Overbooking

I had a room booked for one night 4/16-4/17, I had asked for a non smoking room with a king size bed. I called ahead to let them know we would be arriving late. When we got there they said we had been upgraded to the 11th floor. When we got up there the room had 2 double beds. I went back down stairs and said I asked for a king size bed and thats when the employee at the front desk said they had overbooked so they gave a room on the 4th floor with a king size bed but it was smoking! It was a terrible night sleep, I expected so much more. Overall, we did not enjoy our stay and it was very disappointing.

World-Class AWFUL

What a nightmare! At 4:45 a.m., I was awakened by a wild, noisy crowd of people in the hallway screaming profanities and threats at each other (male and female). I called the front desk, and was told they had already received several complaints and would take care of it immediately. In this case, immediately was not until over 30 MINUTES LATER, by which time I was unable to go back to sleep. When I checked out, I was not asked "How was your stay"? Perhaps the staffer already knew and was afraid to ask. A refund would not be enough to make amends for this Hellish experience. Next time, I'll stay with PARIS Hilton instead of the Capital Hilton. She may be stupid, but she could not be less hospitable!

Not as good as it used to be

This is my fourth year coming to the Capital Hilton. It has always been first class, and the conceierge lounge has been a great plus and lifesaver for those of us that work long days. This year, after paying the additional room rate for the lounge, the lounge was empty of snacks, drinks and even the coffee machine was not working. I did not receive anything from this lounge. False advertising. I will not come back in the future. The hotel was not cleaned properly, trash from previous guest was still in the trash can and the tub was not clean.

Class and Convenience

Beautiful room, classy all around from beginning to finish. Great location. I was there on business and chose the hotel for its close proximity to my primary meeting location and metro accessibility, but was blown away by such high quality for the price I paid. It felt like more of a retreat than a business trip.

friendly staff, great location and very clean and in a new wing. Lots of traffic noise even facing the alley and there was $40 per night vallet parking, the only other option for parking was driving around finding a lot or it was suggested that we could park on the street and feed the meter.

We like the hotel very much. There were some noise due to renovation,but it was only in the day time when no one is around. At the end it was a very pleasent stay.
