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.

I’m not sure why people still go to Hilton when there are now so many better alternatives.
We booked in for two nights to this massive hotel. The room was very well proportioned but very tired. The wallpaper was coming away from the walls in places. The carpets had seen better days. Hilton seems to try and milk money over providing a nice experience. Every other hotel I stayed in this trip had a coffee machine and complimentary water in the room. Not Hilton, they want you to keep paying.
The breakfast was very average with solid rubber like scrambled eggs. Far too overcooked. The coffee was expensive and below average.
Once a powerhouse of luxury stay. Hilton just haven’t invested enough in maintaining their hotels.
Stayed at Capital Hilton for a short conference. Loved the roomy one-bed room. Comfortable bed, nice counter-space in the bathroom. Room darkening curtains, big TV. No refrigerator, but made do with the ice bucket. The clean air filter was a very pleasant surprise.
