Hilton Washington DC Capitol

Washington DC, USA

The hotel

On Capitol Hill, Hilton Washington DC Capitol has one of DC’s most desired addresses (besides the White House, of course). You're just steps from sights like the National Mall, Newseum, US Capitol Building, and Union Station – where the Amtrak brings New Yorkers into the very heart of the capital. It may be a sizeable hotel, giving you all the benefits that come with that (like complimentary WiFi and true value for money), but it is ‘boutiquey’ in spirit and style. Bistro 525 connects you with your setting too; with its mid-Atlantic menu created from local farm produce, and its bar featuring regional brews.

The service was very responsive and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a clean and comfortable place to stay. The water temperature was a little to cold for my liking and they sent someone to come and turn it up immediately.

The hotel and my room were clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I felt safe with the security guards at the first door as well. The location was perfect to walk or Uber anything within a few minutes.

Excellent location, as close to the nations Capitol as you can get. Staff and facility were most welcoming. I highly recommend this hotel for doing business on The Hill as well as for touring the attractions. I will definitely stay there again.

I last stayed here before it became a Hilton. Though it largely looks the same in the lobby areas, the rooms have definitely been updated and it shows. I arrived before check in time and was not only able to get a room, but they upgraded me (Hilton Gold) to a room with a great view of the Capitol Dome room 1217. Agent was very friendly.

I last stayed here before it became a Hilton. Though it largely looks the same in the lobby areas, the rooms have definitely been updated and it shows. I arrived before check in time and was not only able to get a room, but they upgraded me (Hilton Gold) to a room with a great view of the Capitol Dome room 1217. Agent was very friendly. Room was large by DC standards and the bed was very comfortable. Everything looked clean and fresh. The bath products were by Beekman and I have to say they are way better than what you find in most Hiltons. They were serving breakfast when I was there in the restaurant and again the staff was very friendly. The menu was limited (no pancakes or waffles, most everything that was offered had eggs in it) so I chose the French Toast. It was very large but a bit lacking on the taste front. The juice was excellent. Location can’t be beat if you need to be on the Hill. Walking distance to Hill offices and Union Station. Read less

I did not receive even a thank you for being a diamond member or for staying at the hotel. I am certain that the saw my status when I checked in albeit digitally. There could have been a note indicating the room was sanitized. Something on the TV to explain the safe stay protocol. This stay was not member focused at all.
