Great hotel in good location

Would recommend Fri, Dec 18, 2015
My girlfriend and I stayed here in December, and it was a great experience. Hotel was clean and friendly, room was very big. Breakfast and parking were included (I think we got a deal when booking), but breakfast was a buffet of eggs, sausage, potatoes, waffles, yogurt, etc. Close enough to walk to the capitol in ~15 minutes. There is a shuttle that takes you TO the downtown (does not pick you up though), but only before 10am, mon-sat, and some days it just wasn't running. Hotel staff were very friendly. Didn't know too much about the city, but were very willing to look it up for you.

ok, but needs improvement.

Would not recommend Thu, Dec 10, 2015
I have stayed here several times and this is a true 3 star hotel. Nothing terrible, but nothing great either. It's an older hotel and it shows. My reason for staying hear is my proximity to my client and price, which in off season can be as low as $75/night with onsite parking AND breakfast included. I could not justify a stay at the Capital Skyline for anything over $150. Here are the facts: The pros: The staff is always professional and helpful. The new windows have reduced street and highway noise (it's very near Rt. 695) considerably. The buffet breakfast is decent. Cons: The mattresses are inconsistent. Some beds are fine, others way to soft and lack support. The comforters are a wisp. Not good if you like something substantial or weighty. There are no coffee makers in the room. This really stands out when most 2 star hotels even provide this basic amenity. Location is borderline unsafe. If you venture out on foot, do not walk west (or South, really). There was a drive by shooting 2 blocks west just a few months ago. On the other hand, if you go east, you are only a few blocks from a cool neighborhood with a handful of nice places to eat and not to far from the SE waterfront. While the underground onsite parking is convenient, it's also dank, dirty and a little scary. I am always expecting to see a rat as big as my luggage lurking around the corner. As of yet, I have not seen one, though that might be due to the large rat trap they have set out. So if it is high season and they are asking $175+ a night (no parking/breakfast included), and you are in town to see the sites, spend a little extra and stay somewhere else and enjoy yourself. Btw, the pool is nice, however when they open it in summer it also serves the neighborhood community pool as well as the hotel guests. The hotel sells passes to the public at large, and the party goes until 10pm. It's not exactly a family atmosphere.. They are currently under much needed room renovations. While I was there two top floors, 6 & 7, were closed to guests. I was told the entire hotel will be complete by mid-April. This is nice, however the day before my arrival there was a murder about 3 blocks away.

Wouldn't do this again

Would not recommend Thu, Nov 19, 2015
I was in town on business and really only spent a few hours in the room, checking in in the evening and having a flight out at 5 AM. Had I stayed longer, this wouldn't have worked. The hotel Is in a 1960s era building and is privately owned, like many establishments in DC. Management keeps it fairly clean, but the finishes are poor, the furniture is old and poorly maintained, and you'll find the bare minimum available in your room. If you plan only to sleep there, and require little else, this may work for you. But if you are looking for the hotel to be a part of your experience, this isn't it.

Great non-chain Hotel

Would recommend Tue, Nov 10, 2015
My wife looked for a deal in D.C. and found one. But you never know when you do that if you will regret it! We didn't. the hotel was modern, clean, comfortable and quiet. If I HAD to find something... the tub was obviously a little older than the rest of the room that had been updated. Other than that... it was a 10.

Not what we expected

Would not recommend Thu, Oct 29, 2015
The only positive was that the hotel was located in the city for the same price as a hotel in Alexandria. In the photos it looks up to date and nice. However, the room was exceptionally small and do not get a room next to the elevators because the noise will keep you up all night. They were doing construction on the hotel when we arrived, starting at 9:30 am you can here them working. ALSO IT IS $30 A NIGHT TO PARK.....something they fail to mention in their advertisements.

Problem with parking

Would recommend Sat, Oct 24, 2015
When i booked the hotel it said free parking, at the front desk i showed a printed piece of paper that said free parking, lady said ok, later i saw that money was still taken from my card. I called hotel about it, they said that they fixed it but i was charged second time for parking. so i have to call back again, after this time it was finally fixed.

I had a great ime at this hotel, the service is good, the food is good at the restaurant too. Beds we`re so confortable, i slept like a baby. The Wifi is so slow, that you may have to think about paying the 7$/day to upgrade it.

Location was fantastic.

Would recommend Sat, Oct 17, 2015
The bed was very hard and uncomfortable. Small items were missing in the room that are usual an customary such as water cups and lining for the ice bucket. The ice dispenser was located in the basement.quite a distance from the 6th or higher floors. The staff was excellent and very helpful overall. The advertised price vs the actual booking price was very different which made a huge different.
