At weekends ,this has to be one of DCs bargains. Beautiful rooms (and they have smokers!) . Located within a ten minute walk of the white house and easy access to national mall. Staff are uber friendly and the breakfast is first rate. Also historic as this was originally the Statler Hilton where many inaugural balls were held.

Very disappointing stay. I have been a Hilton Honors member for years, but this was the worst Hilton we've been to. I received an email to check in online, which said I could choose my room. But when I clicked, it told me my room would be chosen for me and logged me out. When I checked in at the...

We had fun in DC...would've better if hotel reservation experience at Capitol Hilton wasn't a factor. Hotel was, however, in prime DC location and everything fun was within walking distance. We had a group business meeting and had several rooms in which all had door key dysfunction issues all 4 nights we were there. If you decide to stay here,...

Hotel looks a bit dated once inside, could use some freshening up but nonetheless clean. Room was fine, very clean. Service was excellent. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Within walking distance of White House and Eisenhower Executive Office Building. A number of dining options within walking distance.

The stay started with a warm welcome when I checked in to a well appointed clean lobby. My room was on the 8th floor and it was clean, smelled fresh, and quiet. Not much of a view because of the closeness of the a joining building, however, I was there on business so it was not a problem. I discussed...

This is an old hotel that has for decades occupied prime real estate -- three blocks north of the White House. It looks "tired." Walking down the hall to my room, I thought "this could be 1957." The room itself was quite large, but the colors of the furnishings were so dull (and this room's window looked out into an...

Staff was outstanding, had absolutely no issues with regard to the staff at anytime. Everyone was very helpful and responsive from the valet to the front desk staff. I do agree its an old property and needs a renovation. It is also a great location near both Farragut stops on the metro and one or two stops from the mall....

Staying here for a few days before we move on to San Francisco. Great hotel, perfectly placed for all the sights in Washington DC.

This hotel is two blocks from The White House so it's very centrally located. But it's for people here on business not those of us on vacation. And there are not the vacation type amenities at the hotel that you'd want here. No pool, no comfortable lounge with tv, the bar is in the lobby and not for a relaxing...
