TravelPod Member ReviewsCapitol Hill Hotel Washington DC
What a lovely hotel and a great restaurant all in a handy location to the Capitol building. We thought the accommodation was a little pricey for a basic room no fridge but we found that most accommodation in Washington was at the pricier end if you wanted to stay in town near the monuments.

Historical Traveler Reviews Capitol Hill Hotel Washington DC
Avoid at all costs!!
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 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!!
The hotel was wonderful, one block from the Capitol!! The staff was very friendly and helpful.
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
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.
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
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
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
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.

... that it can be an excellent way of getting a great picture, creating some personal space (a concept if I feel Americans struggle with) and if required as a self-defence weapon.
Once I had dried out and warmed-up after my epic monument marathon, I appreciated that DC has got so much to offer that you would want to stay longer than 40 hours. I would definitely go back but will be sure to arrange it when I am guaranteed better whether.
Today we left on United Airlines flight UA1745 from Los Angeles Airport to Washington.
We had a transfer organised which collected us from our Anaheim Hotel and drive us to LAX airport, surprisingly it only took 40 minutes to get to the airport, as there was no holdups or accidents on the road.
We arrived at the airport and checked in on the kerbside.
... which is on the way to the airport, but we didn't want to miss our flight. The pentagon is also on this line, so in the future, we will hopefully see both of these places. I had no clue the Pentagon was in Virginia. Virginia, Maryland and DC are all just minutes apart. Obviously I want to come back and see the Smithsonian exhibits and a lot of the other historical places. There is a lot to see here.
... who speak very little English. (This will be a challenge because their level of English is probably the same as my level of Spanish.) Our host family in Quito has a daughter in high school and another in medical school. The host family in Cuenca has grandchildren that I hope to meet. Last week my mom and I sent an email to each host family and introduced ourselves. They ...
... majestic and impressive scenario and needless to say we took around a 100 photos during this first day. After a Philadelphia steak at the local food court we hit the road and headed south, still enjoying the National Geographic sights we had just admired.
We found a nice place to sleep with yet another double bed for ourselves and started driving southward again on Thursday morning. We had made an overall plan of the six days we had to spend with our fiat, but we had not looked ...
