    Historical Traveler Reviews Capitol Hill Hotel Washington DC

    Avoid at all costs!!

    from

    I visited this hotel on the web numerous times, and boy was I fooled. I traveled with my husband & 3 kids for a weekend in March. After confirming my reservation and the type of room I requested, which was one with 2 queen beds and a pullout before we arrived, we were very suprised when we arrived to find our room had 1 king bed. We were informed by management that a reservation just makes sure you have a room, not the room that was requested. After my husband argued with the manager, we were finally given the room we requested. There was no apology from the manager or concessions made for their error. The place was musty and moldy smelling. Supplies like drinking cups were nonexsistent. Only good thing was location.

    Great experience--What service!

    from

    From arrival until check-out, the staff at Capitol Hill Suites were very accommodating and helpful. Valet parking, continental breakfasts and proximity to major attractions and Metro made our stay a wonderful experience. They went out of their way (retrieving a mistakenly trashed item from the dumpster) to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Although Capitol Hill Suites is an older hotel, it has been remodeled, is clean and quite comfortable.

    Great location and staff!!

    from

    The hotel was wonderful, one block from the Capitol!! The staff was very friendly and helpful.

    Not recommended

    from

    I enjoyed my stay here September 2000 so much that I brought my husband & kids here for Easter weekend 2004. The hotel sure has gone down hill.

    The room was too hot and we were unable to open windows. The hall had an unpleasent odour....damp musty smell. Kitchenette had not been cleaned from last guests. General housekeeping needs improvement. Room not made up one day. Never had complimentary shampoo, soap,coffee or tea replenished when they did clean room. Last time I'll stay here.

    Very good value; excellent location; breakfast included

    from

    Stayed in this hotel with 2 children Nov. 21-26, 2003. The location is excellent and the value very good. Room cost $70+/night when combined with a flight package from Expedia. Importantly, the price included breakfast which can be a big expense. Breakfast is a generous continental: several kinds of muffins, bagels, danishes, juices, coffee, milk, fruit. We did have to change rooms twice to get a room that suited me: First room was on ground floor so I didn't want to leave windows open. (A/C was off due to the time of year, but it was relatively warm.) Second room hadn't been cleaned yet. Third room was just right: very roomy, clean, but a bit worn. We've been living and traveling in Europe for 3 years, so maybe this doesn't bother us as much as some of the other reviewers. All rooms have two queen beds; jr.

    suites have 2 queens plus a fold-out couch. Larger rooms have a coffee table for eating. Others we saw did not. Kitchenette was clean; coffee and pot provided. Huge closet; ironing board, hair dryer provided; cable t.v. The hotel was very quiet; very minimal street noise during the night, even with windows open. The neighborhood is clean, charming and seemed safe. Good restaurants and shops nearby; metro conveniently close. Common areas of the hotel are lovely; staff friendly and accomodating.

    Needs updating

    from

    Our family of five stayed at the Capitol Hill Suites four nights November 2003. The location can't be beat. Fun, safe neighborhood.

    Capitol and metro each close by. Friendly staff. However, the hotel is in need of updating. Our carpet was very dirty. There is a kitchenette but no table to eat at. The shelf in the bathroom was broken. There is no ventilation/fan in the bathroom. I loved the area but would think twice about staying there again. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, I would have appreciated a cleaner, updated room.

    Hot, hot, hot -- NO AC

    from

    Checked in Thursday evening 10/23 with family of 5. Found room to be very hot. When we turned on the AC all we got was hot air. After speaking to front desk and engineering dept. I was told that they had turned the building to heat mode and could only provide HEAT. They were NOT able to provide AC and advised us to open our windows.

    Unacceptable based on the fact that half the windows would not open and we were also on first floor.

    Although it was a total pain we packed up within 1 hour of arriving and switched hotels to One Washington Circle Hotel, which was first class.

    Basic, not worth the money

    from

    I stayed at the Capitol Hill Suites at the end of July, 2003. The location can't be beat, but everything else sure can. The rooms are in need of updating - bathroom fixtures and tile look like they're from the mid-80s. The carpet was stained. There is no atmosphere to the rooms - no decorations on the walls and all in beige, except for that one nice blue wall they advertise on their web site. The A/C is loud.

    The kitchenette was dirty - shelves and drawers sticky. The windows were not cleaned and they are in need of a coat of paint. Some good things - comfortable beds, okay staff, good cont. breakfast, and that darn-good location. Also, after I complained, the manager immediately moved me to another room and took care of most of the problems. So, if you're willing to compromise on quality of a room for location, I would recommend this hotel. If you are used to at least Super 8-type quality and will not go below that, then this hotel might not be the place for you.

    Our family of 4 stayed for 1 week in June of 2003. We found the rooms clean, and quiet. A plus was a separate bedroom and TV for the parents, while the kids had the living room and another TV. All Capitol Hll and mall sites were within walking distance as was the metro allowing us to forgo the rental car expense and parking headaches. The weekly rate (7 day minimum) made the stay very affordable.

    Capitol Hill Suites - do not recommned

    from

    I stayed at Capitol Hill Suites for a week during a business trip to DC in 2002. This hotel is in need of serious capitol improvements. PROS - Close to Capitol, friendly staff. CONS - We had no hot water for two days, locks on doors were broken, carpet was worn, advertised 2 bed efficiency was really just a bed and a pull out couch, no ventilation in bathroom.

    In summary, I do not recommend this hotel. For short visits, stay a little farther from the Capitol and take the metro in.

    ... just a few central skyscrapers surrounded by massive acreage of parking lots.

    I try not to be jingoistic (and would prefer to forget my days as a Reagan generation College Republican), but when I visit Washington I can’t help feel pride in my country for the good things it has done and political and philosophical concepts it pioneered. I went through times during the years of Dubya’s presidency when I didn’t feel all that positively, but overall when ...

    ... enter the store and if you wanted desert or ice-cream there was another counter (or two) around the back just for desert. The kids were very impressed with the self help sauce, soft drink and ice-cream stands - even though we didn't have any this time.

    We finally dragged ourselves out of the Air and Space Museum and headed across the beautiful grassed area of the National Mall to the National Art Gallery. Lots of "National" ...

    We are back in the USA!!! It was a very long day for us, but we are back safe and sound. This trip was amazing and I think everyone had a great time. For me, this was the best EF Tour I have participated in. I would write more; however I am exhausted. We had a 2am wake up call and then spent the entire day traveling! Needless to say, it's bedtime! Looking forward to more travel adventures next ...

    After lunch at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, went into the DC area and found a cool hotel blocks from the White House. Didn't get a chance to see anything but tomorrow should be different. Wednesday the 2nd. Got up to a breakfast misunderstanding (I'll tell you about it later) and went to see the White House and the Washington monument. Decided we ...
