Excellent Hotel very close to the White House
I give it 4.5 stars but again, TripAdvisor does not allow for half stars. An iconic hotel in the heart of DC, the Capital Hilton is an old world hotel with great facilities. The rooms are very spacious with reasonable views and comfortable beds. The TV is really large in size and has a great selection of channels. Special compliments to the bath slippers. They were the best I have found across the USA. Large, comfortable and perfectly fitting - they felt premium. The toilet is a bit small but it does have a bath tub. So no complaints. There is a nice restaurant in the main lobby which is open for breakfast and lunch. Dinner and drinks are served at the bar. The food is reasonably priced and the buffet breakfast has plenty of vegetarian options. The location of the hotel is absolutely spot on. Just a 4 mins walk away from the White House. There are many restaurants within a 10 min walk from here. Indian, Italian, French and Mediterranean- you name it. All fairly close by. It is also a 10 min Uber ride away from the Navy memorial, a main departure point for DC city tours. A slight negative is that the rooms are located far away from the lift. So, there is a lot of walking needed to be done to get to the rooms. But overall, I will recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again!!
A little tired by great location
My wife and I have stayed at this hotel 3 or 4 times. Each stay was for pleasure and lasted 4-5 nights. Very corporate looking hotel with a nice open and airy lobby that has a center bar/lounge. The rooms are tired. They are in need of a renovation. Even though they need updating, I was surprise to see that they didn't attend to some of the basic issues within a room. Such as; broken drawer handles, desk chairs with tears, lamps that didn't work. It seems like they are letting rooms run down until they get the green light to renovate. Maybe that has started? The plus side of the hotel is the wonderful service at the front desk and specifically in the restaurant for breakfast. The hotel gets 5-stars for its location. Walking distance to just about everything a tourist could want.
This place is great, on checkin we were giving free upgrade to a suite and free breakfast. Staff very friendly. Just a short walk to the White House and other attractions. Look forward to coming back.
Great location and lovely staff
We have stayed at the Capital Hilton several times over the years and love the location as it is just a few blocks from White House. We stayed here recently again to visit our son who is doing an internship and had such a lovely visit that I needed to leave a review. Upon arrival, we checked in with Frank, the front desk mgr, and another young woman whose name I did not catch. They upgraded our room as Lifetime Diamond members and we ended up having a lovely chat. The room was so spacious our son ended up staying with us. Frank greeted me by name or acknowledged us anytime we passed by during our stay, as well as printing out tickets for us, giving us directions and recommendations as well as checking us out (does this man ever sleep?). Our room was meticulously cleaned every day by friendly housekeeping. The bar area is a great place to have a cocktail and grab a delicious bite - the crab bisque is outstanding - after a day of sightseeing. The restaurant was beautiful, the food and service wonderful. All around great visit - hope we get the chance to get back to this great hotel and lovely city again soon.
