Hilton Washington DC Capitol

Washington DC, USA

Virgin rating

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.

Wonderful experience and team atmosphere. Really feel like all staff are working to improve experience. Had a few delays but all rectified well. Great location in relation to US Capitol and walking on National Mall. Walking distance to Union Station and central to many fine dinning and drinking establishments.

The gentleman by the hostess stand approached me, Hi , good morning! Where are you from? Is it matter? The front desk at night don’t answer the phone calls. Not welcoming staff. The hostess and the breakfast server did amazing job!

We enjoyed our stay in a large, corner room with a view of the U.S. Capitol. The bed is comfortable. Those who hope to work in the room should be aware that there isn’t desk.

We enjoyed our stay in a large, corner room with a view of the U.S. Capitol. The bed is comfortable. Those who hope to work in the room should be aware that there isn’t desk. A small glass-top table would fit a laptop, but there isn’t a desk chair. The bathroom is large with plenty of surfaces. The shower has a low shelf on two sides that’s very helpful for shaving legs. The towels are on the thin side. Toiletries are in pump dispensers. The hotel’s lobby is in an atrium. Elevators have glass sides. The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from Union Station and is even closer to a DC Circulator bus stop. The hotel’s neighborhood is boring with few options for morning coffee. Read less

I upgraded to a junior suite and find out when we get to room the beds are a queen Murphy bed and pullout couch. Had to go back to desk to find out this is how all suites are. We changed to a regular room and find out when we get there that it has 2 double beds not queen or king. Had I known I never would have booked for a family of 4.
