Capitol Skyline

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very nice hotel. Friendly staff. I would stay here again.

We stayed at the Capitol Skyline for a quick overnight to the city to attend a concert at The Anthem. We weren't expecting elegance at this price point, but were still a little dismayed by the outside appearance - it's pretty dated. Once in the lobby, we were pleasantly surprised. The decor was modern, the room was updated and very clean, and the staff was helpful and friendly. We took advantage of the happy hour specials before heading to the Wharf area, which was a few minutes away by car. We were satisfied with our stay - especially at that rate.

The iron in the room wasn't working. I needed iron in the morning and I called the guest services at 6 am. I was told to wait till 6:30 am. The housekeeping staff starts and then I was delivered the iron aroung 6:40 am.

Nice renovated hotel. has that older look on the outside(not in a bad way), but nicely redone on the inside. No issues other than the A/C not really working but overall okay. Could use a menu or something about the onsite restaurant in the room or local options as we are not from around there but would stay there again(at the orbitz rate).

Well located. Room was clean enough. Fee for parking is a bit extreme. Didn't try the free wi-fi. Breakfast mediocre.

Reception staff was lovely. Breakfast nice. I would not recommend staying on pool facing side. Very loud roads and ok bedding made sleep difficult. An early morning persistent wake up by cleaning staff not ok. Location ok, not great. If you stay make sure your room faces I street. Put do not disturb on door.

lousy hotel, don't stay here.and beware their cancellation policy of 72 hours

Very accommodating. We just got into DC around 8:00am. They allowed us to park even though our room wasn’t ready and allowed us to use the hotel facilities to freshen up before heading to breakfast and a few museums. Thank you again for being so great.

It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend this hotel to anyone

t was excellent. The staff was perfect =for my stay

They changed my room because my room felt like a freezer.

Convenient location, walkable to several attractions. Safeway, 7-11, cvs short walk, plenty of parking in garage. Was here on an “off” weekend and reserved “run of the house” room, was given larger corner king room. Standard rooms do not have mini-fridge, which is a drag, even though the credenza has the cabinet for it. This room had a fridge and small microwave.

Loud neighbors, people standing outside hotel all night long, room booked was not room received

The check in was super easy, the room was very comfortable, the pool was beautiful, and brekfast was very decient!! It was a plus they had Gluten free bread at breakfast!! Made me happy.

It's been a comfortable awesome experience. We have queen sized double beds. The room are clean. A lot of towels. The staff are excellent. Walking distance to 7-Eleven. I would recommend this hotel.

Clean rooms and a short walk to Nationals Park with easy highway access. I would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I were celebrating our one year anniversary & also attending a wedding during our stay at Capitol Skyline. We called the hotel to ask if early check in was possible to prepare for the wedding and we were assured it would be no problem! We arrived around 12:30 to get ready for the wedding and were quickly informed then that no rooms were ready and that they are only guaranteed to be ready by 3:00pm, yet we were told it wouldn't be a problem hours before and didn't have time to adjust. The gentleman at the desk didn't even pretend to check his computer to answer my question. Only quickly told me I couldn't check in until 3. There was no empathy with the situation. Once we were able to check in at 2:30, they asked for a credit card to have on hold but no charges would be made other than the $30 parking fee. Today (4 days after checkout), I called trying to find out some charges that showed up on my credit card and was told it was to cover the $40/night parking fee. I am writing this review because I have stayed at some rundown hotels because they were cheaper HOWEVER they went above and beyond to be polite and honest about their fees. They did anything they could to treat me like a paying customer so that I may return in the future. Here, I felt like they thought they were doing me a favor by letting me pay to stay at their hotel while charging my much more than their website/Orbitz and the front desk attendant informed me the day of check in.

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.
