At Capital Hilton, families stay just two blocks from where the nation’s magic happens — the White House. The downtown location makes it easy to get to the National Mall museums, historic monuments, theaters and shops. For families who want to venture further, three Metro stops are within two blocks of the hotel.
Rooms and suites feature Hilton Serenity bedding, well-appointed sitting areas, flat-screen televisions and wireless Internet access. Cherry wood accents and rich emerald colors adorn the luxury units. Suites display more spacious parlor rooms and one or two bedrooms. Twigs Restaurant serves contemporary, locally-inspired cuisine and a signature breakfast buffet. Children’s menus are available. Statler Lounge offers lunch and dinner in a World War II period decor. Parents may want to check out the Capital City Club & Spa for a yoga class or a tranquil massage.

The location is great - but the hotel is a disaster. Very expensive, I don’t mind that if I get value but no. My room had no fridge but coffee, whereas my colleagues had a fridge but no coffee... both our rooms smelled, theirs from smoke mine from sweat. Staff was not very helpful, at all. So - its a cheap hotel with high prices. Never ever going here again.
This hotel is in an ideal location to explore DC! I asked for a room not by the elevator and that was honored. I thought the room was really nice and clean. I woke up on the 3rd day with bites and they took it seriously and cleaned my luggage and moved me to a different room. It did take a few days to get a reponse but it was not bed bugs (thankfully). The continental breakfast was good as welll.
