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 accommodations are great, but the entire staff makes this the place to stay! They definitely go out of their way to make sure your entire stay is comfortable! I can’t emphasize how well the employees take care of you at this property. Not just one employee, but all of them!

I stayed here for three nights of business due to its close proximity to Capitol Hill. I’m not a DC native but you can clearly see the paradox between the wealth and poverty in this area. Yes you can walk to the Capitol during the day but I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT at night. So here’s 3 more reasons not to stay 1. Decor- I researched this place… Read more
I stayed here for three nights of business due to its close proximity to Capitol Hill. I’m not a DC native but you can clearly see the paradox between the wealth and poverty in this area. Yes you can walk to the Capitol during the day but I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT at night. So here’s 3 more reasons not to stay 1. Decor- I researched this place before booking and it stated there was a recent renovation; the renovation was in the meeting rooms not the guest rooms. The room doesn’t have laundry bags or a microwave. Room front desk rep told me I only needed one key versus asking how many keys I’d prefer. 2. Dead bugs laying around the hotel. 3. No one ever, I mean ever answers the front desk phone lines. Read less

You will not be disappointed. The hotel is classy, the lobby is beautiful and great for a mini photo shoot. And the bathroom is not tight, which I appreciate Staff is helpful, On check out day, I was able to leave my car in valet, go to an event and come back and retrieve the car afterwards.

No AC because the rooms appear to have been sealed up and not utilized in months. Leaky vents above the bathroom door small traces of mold. No parking only valet. After trying to resolve the problem the new room appeared to be OK. I was also told to take some snacks on the house which they charge me for after I got home.
