Capitol Skyline

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

was first given a room on the 7th floor with a great view of the capitol, except there was some kind of blood/food stain at the foot of the bed, the wall mirror was not up but leaning against the wall, the tv remote didnt work, and the coffee condiments had been used and not replaced (chewed up straw). Plus while we were in the room two maids at different times walked into the room surprised to see us, as though it wasn't common knowledge that the room was taken. When i told the front about the above, manager wasn't too apologetic but did move us to a "clean" room on the 5th floor. I'm sure another sap was probably given the room we didnt want :| Bathroom was noticeably old. Beds were comfortable. Pool was nice, but dont order anything more complicated then a rum and coke at the bar...definitely no real bartender there. Otherwise staff was nice, one-way shuttle to some tourist sites was helpful. Rating wouldve been higher if manager at least pretended concern over the room condition, maybe a breakfast voucher for our re-location trouble? would not return here.

Staff is great. Hotel modern, clean, comfortable. Has a nice outdoor pool area and bar, but would've been nice if it was open later for adults in the summer season, esp on the weekends. Not far from the capital bldg, but walking from it is not the safest...

Pool party at the hotel was too loud and too dirty. The lobby was dirty during check in. No water in the room. No fridge and AC didn't work properly. Area near the hotel not great either. Pay a bit more and stay somewhere better. I will next time.

hotel is basically a painted and updated howard johnson. nice little restaurants walking distance. didn't have hot water the first 2 times i showered and nobody at the hotel even pretended to care about it. was given a free breakfast and that made up for it. the hotel had a pool party that hotel guests were allowed to attend. ordered a drink at the pool bar and was not allowed to take the drink up to my room. families walked into the pool party and turned right around because it was a extremely loud hip hop music with lots of drunk adults, great people watching for me but most likely a horrible experience for families.

Even though i have conformed booking, at the time of check in they asked to go to another hotel without any prior notice. Bad experience

would be nice to have an extra person to help you with luggage to your room. Check utilities like air conditioning or Heat, that is working OK.

Good, could have a better dinning service with more food options and free shuttle service to airport for guests

Nice hotel conveniently located between Capitol Hill and Navy Yard. Room was clean and well laid out. My bathtub needed to be replaced (stained, hairline cracks and old repairs that were starting to deteriorate. Despite appearance it was functional. Area is in midst of a major renaissance, with lots of new condo buildings going up.

Great location Nice hotel nice staff decent restaurant with OK prices for the area 20 minute walk to the mall

Older but updated hotel. Staff very friendly. Rooms clean and beds comfortable. Only complaint is they have no AC. It's a fan and doesn't cool room much so I would not recommend hotel for the summer.

This was an excellent hotel to stay at during the Inauguration. It was a 10 minute walk to the Capitol for the events. We attended an Inaugural Ball at the National Harbor and it was a 10 minute ride. There were plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walk as well. The area was very nice. The only slightly concern about walking was the underpass on the way to the Capitol but there is a police station right there.

It was a really nice hotel and the staff was great just the beds could of been a little more comfortable

Rooms were clean and comfortable. Parking is pricey but there was street parking available. Check in/out was quick and uneventful. Staff was courteous.

This hotel has kind staff, clean rooms and is near the historic Washington DC... there is a good relationship between price, expectation and received services....

Great location. Free parking. Good deal for one night stay

The location is a plus you are in walking distance of just about everything if you are able to walk a few miles. We had an awesome view of the capitol. McDonald is right across the street for quick cheap food. The beds where soft bedding nice. The bathroom was sad the tub was chipped with some sort of weird patch in the middle. Over all a good stay for a good price.

The hotel is nice. The facilities are a little bit old and you can easily notice it, however the hotel is located in a walk in distance from the Capitol, and the price us just affordable that makes you forget you are in an old hotel. Staff is friendly.

Exceptionally clean room, a free; one way shuttle to key monuments and landmarks is available; within a short walking distance to Nationals Park and a Metro station. Happy to recommend!

Horrible. Do not stay not a good hotel. Area is bad
