Great Location

The hotel is great, the location is perfect but my room was a bit noisy due to the A/C equipment on the top of the 3rd floor.

Nice Hotel. Great Location.

Pros: Hotel was centrally located in D.C. about 2 blocks from the White House. Two Metro stops are nearby (McPherson & North Farragut), servicing all the popular tourist areas. Hotel is well kept and the beds were verrry comfortable (wanted to take one home with me). The staff was attentive and the upkeep of the hotel was impeccable although the quality of the A/C varies between rooms. Cons: No free in-room Wifi. Costs $14 per day for in-room access. There are two terminals in the lobby offering free wifi but they are often busy. There is free wifi available in the lobby for your own devices, but there is a daily two hour limit per room account. Go beyond that and you'll incur the in-room fee. The rooms do not have mini-fridges. One can be requested if needed for insulin or other medication storage. The restaurant, bar and gift shop are quite expensive (ie: a single roll of Ritz crackers was selling for $3.99)! Overall, we were pleased with the hotel and would stay again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Plenty of deli's, sandwich shops, and pizza joints nearby for a quick snack. Tons of Starbucks throughout the city. A CVS is also located across the street up the block from the hotel for incidentals. D.C. law: the markets/convenience stores charge a nickel per shopping bag. Use your own to save.

Worth the Stay

This is a great location to everything downtown - museums, monuments, great restaurants and transportation. Beds were very comfortable and the service was outstanding. Twigs restaurant (in hotel) can be pricey but the food was excellent. For a quick bite in the morning you will find a Starbucks on every corner. I did a lot of research before booking with the Capital Hilton and this was a GREAT find.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy a ticket for either the trolley or double decker bus to get to know the city and where all the best sites are in DC. Start early in the morning to beat the rush in the museums and monuments.
