Haven’t finished my stay yet, but Frank at the front desk is amazing. He is very helpful and welcoming. He has helped me with multiple concerns, and has always done so thoughtfully, quickly, and without making me feel like I’m being annoying!

Madelyn Peet's was great at the reception desk. Very warm greeting that made me feel welcome after a long day. Good start for my conference! Hotel room is adequate, location is great. Easy stroll to White House and neighboring parks. Fall is lovely in DC.

Maddy was fantastic. I have a very important speech that I needed to print so that I could practice. She help me , helped organize me and was even kind enough to to wish me luck. I stay at Hilton hotels all over the world. I have never had this much help given to me by a Hilton employee. So appreciative! Thank you Madalyn.

Frank Poku made this the perfect stay! He made accommodations for me at the last minute and I appreciate all that he did to make everything convenient for me! Also, there is a CVS next door and the convenience of that is supreme! Finally, the restroom off the lobby is the best for changing clothes before check-in or after check-out.

Room was great but received bill for 2 nights, but i only stayed 1 night. It took 5 calls to 5 people to get a refund. But no refund arrived. A day later I got ANOTHER charge, this time for a 3 night stay. Promised a refund, still no refund.

This is an older hotel, but very well kept up. The staff was awesome and the rooms were clean. There is some construction going on so they may be doing some upgrades. We stayed two night and walked anywhere we wanted to go. The location has some good restaurants around itand and a short jaunt to the White House and the Mall!

I stayed at Capital Hilton in early September, and I would really recommend this hotel. It is a very nice place, with great location. I would especially like to thank Frank at the front desk. He was very helpful during check-in and check-out, and he has impressive knowledge about football history. Great guy for a good conversation!

I stayed here for two days. I met a gentleman at the front desk by name Frank Poku. He went above and beyond to make my stay awesome. I was at first skeptical, but my experience with Mr. Poku was extremely pleasing. He took his time to ask how he could help and provided all information that I needed. All in all, he made my stay great.
