Beautiful hotel 2 blocks from White House, amazing staff, great location

Loved not having to hold on to the tickets, all done on the phone

clean and close to metro

Good hotel. Great location. Room is always very clean, well maintained and reasonably priced. Some of the common areas and elevators look tired and worn. (Ex. Worn or chipped paint surfaces). Overall, a good hotel for the price. Could be great with a little effort from management.

The area is really nice. very close to the WH.

They didn't clean my room and tried to call and ask for it but the phone is always busy.

Unfortunately our room smell like cigarettes smoke pretty bad.

Staff was friendly and check-in was fast. The bed had stains on the mattress, top sheet, and comforter. The walls were paper thin and the door had gaps in it which made it hard to sleep when people were walking by/opening and closing their doors. We didn’t sleep well.

Valet parking was vary expense and took way too long to bring my vehicle for early morning check out.

They charge 50 for accidental per day, and 60 for parking per day, so add that to whatever the room cost!

I did like the location of the hotel. I did not like the service.

It is clear there is an attempt to clean each room with precision. I entered my room this time to find that used (dry) face-towel(s) we’re still on the rack in the shower... it was an oversight I’m sure but it also made me think that the shower/tub was not cleaned properly.

Terrible service at the check in. Had to sleep on crapy bunk bad, as the room booked was not avail.

It was very nice, clean and the staff was helpful.

Thank you for choosing our Capital Hilton. We do have strict smoking policies. I regret that you were placed in a guest room in which a previous guest did not adhere to these policies. We wish you would have notified our Front Desk as we would have sought to relocate you. We would be honored to have the opportunity to showcase a true Capital Hilton experience, where you are greeted with pristine accommodations, impeccable service, and you enjoy our coveted location that makes it very easy to take care of business and then take advantage of all the restaurants and sights Washington D.C. offers. Kind regards, Stefan M., GM

Showing extra care over the finer details definitely makes all the difference to a memorable visit, so we thank you for sharing these observations with us. I was very disappointed to hear of your feedback with regards to the unacceptable condition of the bed linen and have shared your comments with our housekeeping team. It was also disappointing to hear of the door gaps in this particular room which lead to less than a perfect night’s sleep. Please be assured I have shared your feedback with our Maintenance team for their urgent review. I do sincerely apologize and wish to welcome you back soon. Kind regards, Stefan M., GM

We were disappointed to learn that on this occasion we failed to exceed your expectations. Attention to detail is extremely important and sadly there seem to have been areas of our service on this occasion that did not meet the high standards to which we aspire. Please come see us again, we would love to restore your faith in our Capital Hilton. Regards, Stefan M., GM
