Historical Traveller Reviews of Capital Hilton Hotel
Enjoyed my stay, Great locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel staff was very pleasant, courteous and professional.
We had no problems with the hotel or its location. As a matter of fact the St. Regis hotel is located across the street.
The hotel is only 2 blocks from the White House and all the other monuments. There are 3 metro stations quite close by, all within walking distance and fairly easy to find.
For those who need a coffee fix, there is a Starbuck's also directly across the street.
As with all large cities, there is a homeless population but we did not walk in those areas at night, so we had no problems.
We did experience a fire alarm the last morning of our stay. However, I was pleasantly suprised to find an employee, with a walkie-talkie, stationed by the elevators to assist us with evacuating the building. By the way, it was a false alarm.
No, our room did not have a view, but we weren't there to stay inside and look out the window all day long.
Yes, there is construction going on across the street, but there was no noise in the evening and our sleep was not disturbed.
Wonderful spafrom Janeite
I had a massage and a facial. Both were perfect and the providers most proficient. Even the obligatory new-age music was less annoying than usual (much of it was based on classical themes instead of endless appeggios). Altogether, a most highly recommended spa.
Had a GREAT stay at the Capital Hiltonfrom MarlaD521
The only small constructive suggestions I would give the hotel would be to speak to the front desk staff and concierage. They were not as openly happy/friendly as other hotel staff I've come across. But, I may have just caught them on a bad day. No one was rude or anything like that, but they weren't super friendly either.
That's it! I hope you find this review helpful, have a great time in DC!!! It's a great city!
Happy with the Hiltonfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Good Deal, Great Location = Incredible Valuefrom italyisawesome
It was OK, Nothing Specialfrom dickson_thunder
The staff was very friendly and problems with street beggars mentioned by another poster were almost non-existent. It was much less than most big cities and even then the 3 or 4 times I encountered it was at least a block or more from the Hilton.
If you want to save money on food there is a Burger King just across the street from the hotel and Wendy's and Subway are one block away.
One subway station is a block and a half straight down K Street (Farragut North - Red Line) and the two other stations (Farragut West and McPherson Square) both Blue and Orange Lines are two blocks away. There is a CVS and Rite-Aid one block away to stock up on drinks and chips.
I would have rated this hotel 4 stars instead of three if not for a problem at check-in. We were assigned to a room already occupied by another guest. While this was resolved politely and quickly, 4 stars hotels don't do this to start with.
I will have to say that emergency vehicles in Washington are quite loud and this will be a problem if you are a light sleeper staying on the
"K" Street side of the hotel.
Great location. Poor service.from NewEnglandTraveler22

I also had a 6am courtesy wake up call thanks to the massive construction project going on across the street on the other side of the hotel!
Try not to roam around the block after 8pm. There are quite a number of unsavory characters on the street.
For the money I spent $290 a night, it was so not worth it.
Nice place with friendly stafffrom A TripAdvisor Member
Problem solved. The Metro Redline is exactly one block west on K Street (17th and K). We ordered pizza the last night there and had to go to the lobby to get it. That was a little annoying. The room did have black out curtains. They are right behind the sheer white curtains. We stayed here for 4 nights and never heard other guest at night. The outside niose was no worse than any other city I have stayed in. I would have no problem staying at the Capital Hilton again.

Top Local Tips for Washington DC
DC Metro The DC Metro is one of the best transportation systems I've used. It can take you virtually anyplace in the District and surrounding areas. The easiest way to become familiar with using it is through the website. http://www.wmata.com/ There's a trip planner which was invaluable to me because not only does it show how to get from here to there - there's an added part which when you click on it, tells you how to walk from the Metro station to the destination! This was critical for me. I planned ahead as to where I wanted to go and was able to write the walking out in advance. For example, if I planned to go to the Air and Space Museum and take the Metro to the Smithsonian stop - once I exited I would have no clue where to go. Same for if I knew I was going to leave a place and have to find a Metro station - I got directions in advance from a site as to how to walk to the Metro stop I was going to. I highly suggest using the website to plan ahead and get a feel for it.
Talking to conchita In front of the white house are some people protesting, conchita has been doing it since 1981, talking to her is quite an experience.
To Consider I went during the Cherry Blossom Festival and there were an extremely large amount of people there. Lines were large and the Museums were VERY crowded. Traffic was also very bad. TIP: don't go during the Cherry Blossom Festival week which is usually the first week in April.
