Convenient and comfy for business travel

I found this hotel at comparatively good room rates for a conference in DC. Checkin and checkout were a breeze, and the location was perfect for my work activities. Clean and spacious room, great health facilities and a great porter outside who got me cabs in a jiffy.

From the bell captain to the front desk staff, concierge and the wait staff, everyone at the Capital Hilton was there to be sure that my stay exceeded my expectations.

Decent Downtown Hotel

I stayed here as the conference was being held here. At $380 per night, I expected more. I was surprised at the lack of restaurant options, especially when their only restaurant was closed. Ate from a limited menu in the lobby bar. Room was nice, but hallway noise far more prominent than others.

Close to the White Houst

The Hotel was just a few blocks from the White House and in a very safe area. Hotel exceeded my expectations after reading previous comments in reviews. i would stay here again. Beware of the $42 overnight hotel parking fee for vehicles. also bring your air card as the signing on to wireless was another hefty $16 a day. Ha.

not impressive

I was not impressed with this hotel. I was in a non-smoking room and while my room did not smell like smoke, the hallway smelt like an ashtray. Also, parking was outrageous ($45 per day). Finally, there was no free internet even in the lobby. I had to find a starbucks to simply check my e-mail. I will not be going back to the Capital Hilton.

Great hotel for business on the Hill

While the room is arranged a bit oddly, it was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Executive Lounge breakfast left a little to be desired, unless you like getting your morning protein from a hard-boiled egg. Super location near Metro, decent restaurants, a CVS, and the White House. Would stay here again in an instant.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

I recommend the McPherson Square Metro stop if you're coming from Reagan National - blue line and you don't have to switch lines. And, you pass a CVS on the way in case you need a snack or sundry!

Good value, but lacking in details

Chose this hotel because of the price--was a great value (due to construction outside and health club/spa closed for renovation). Location is good (2 blocks to metro) and area is safe. Room was sizeable and comfortable, but I was put off by the fact that it didn't appear to have been well cleaned. Pillows on couch were askew and there was an empty bottle on the window sill. That day, housekeeping didn't remove my bottle or glass or replace handtowels or other towels. Nor did they fix the couch. For the reduced price, this was a great hotel, but I didn't feel it was 4-star service. No coffee maker in the room was also a negative.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Union Station has a luggage storage facility. Great help if you need to go to the Capitol after checking out of your hotel and before flying out from BWI or via Union Station. You can also leave a bag there if you do a White House tour (security rules limit what you can bring in).

Outstanding Hotel and location

The hotel rooms have recently been renovated and are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The location is central to everything, for both tourist and the business traveler.
