So if NYC underwhelmed then the opposite is certainly true for Washington D.C I loved it. I mean I really LOVED it!!!!
I know that D.C was purpose built as the capital and I know that in comparison to NYC it is a lot younger but funnily enough I felt more history in my time here than I did in the entire time I was in NYC. D.C is fully of …
First sighting through the window in the morning: heavy rainfall... But we're determined to face the weather and see as much as we can. We decide to take the subway down to Arlington Cemetery and much to our joy, we see the sun has come out to greet us when we come above ground again... Arlington Cemetery would be quite dreary in the rain. The …
Waking up today was great: the beds here are amazing... That's a good start of my day :-) Lenny and myself got up around 7am. The sky is cloudy and they expect rain throughout the coming days, like it has been the previous days. Just when we thought we escaped the Belgian weather for a bit... At least the temperatures are up! The day started at 25 …
The alarm clock buzzes at 5.30am yet I find myself awake 5 mins prior to that. My body must be saying: "Ann! Wake up! Time to leave! Chop chop!" Strangely I have no issues waking up... My snooze button doesn't get any attention from me today, for once. I sent a text message to Didi to see if he's awake as he has to drive me to the airport. How I …
Ahhh, after the grandparents took our kids back to their house, my husband and I had some time to ourselves. In fact, we had the next 24 HOURS to Ourselves! Can you dig it? Omg, some quality alone time during a vacation. It's unheard of in our household. It had been a long time since the hubs and I hung out in D.C. sans kiddos. Before we checked …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill Washington DC
I stayed at the hotel from October 11 through October 14, 2003. I was very disappointed with my hotel room (730). My primary concern was the lack of cleanliness of the room. I was busy much of the time and basically needed a place to relax and refresh myself. The room was not clean! Further, I woke up one night and saw a bug in the bed. I was surprised and tried to kill it but it was too fast. I thought I might be dreaming. I have never seen bugs in a Hyatt hotel. When I was packing to leave, I saw the same type of bug in the closet.I reported this to a manager (Steve) after I checked out. I told him there were roaches in my room. He replied, I have never heard that before. He also queried me on whether I had contacted anyone, concerning the complaint.
I stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in November 2003. The location of the hotel is great, literally two blocks to the Capitol Building and the National Mall. We arrived at the hotel about 10 PM, got our keys, and headed up to the room. Unfortunately, the keys did not work NOR did the next set that I went down to the front desk to get. Finally someone from security came up with a new set that finally worked. Well, after going down for a drink in the lounge, we went back upstairs and the keys would not work again! Another man from security came up to the room and demonstrated that in order for the keys to work, we would have to shove the key as far as possible to the left hand side of the card reader because the system is old. He also said that they have told the front desk to tell people this fact, but no one ever mentioned anything to us. I saw several people struggling with their keys during the weekend, so I know the problem was not just with our door. Another problem was that the hotel was at occupancy, and was therefore very busy. There are four guest room elevators in the main lobby and they took forever at all times of the day (and were constantly jammed full of people). There are three additional elevators that we discovered in another wing of the hotel, but I don't think most people knew about them. Also, if you plan to order room service, do it before 10PM because the service stops at that time. The menu in the room does say there is all-night dining available, but when we called to order we were told the kitchen was closed and we could not order anything (even beverages). Why would we try to order beverages from room service? Well that's because the vending machine on our floor was empty for the entire weekend, and we could not use the stairs to go to another floor because the doors only opened on the street level and not other floors (due to security). Overall, the stay at the Hyatt Capitol Hill was great. The rooms are nice (very typical Hyatt), the staff is friendly, and, as mentioned, the location is great! We just encountered a few bumps in the road that I thought I would share. Have a good trip!
Just ok... that is the best way to describe this hotel. Usually stay at the Westin on M and wanted to try something different... Will return to the Westin. The rooms were very plain and dusty... The people who worked there could not of been nicer or more helpful.. Ok location, nothing special.
Join the Hyatt Club. H CH was good time
I stayed in the Hyatt Capital hill during the summer and had a gfreat time. The room was spacious. clean and comfortable. I had a king size and it was great. Even though Expedia madea mistake with m,y reservation, Ithe front desk clerk remidied the problem in a minmute.
She was both kind and courteous. If I may make a suggestion; I belong to the Hyatt club, and even though I do not stay there much I beleive it helps a great deal to belong to it. It does not cost anything but I did get my paper had breakfast and enjoyed my stay. It was a short walk to a tapas restaurant which was enjoyasble and I would go back there again
No room at the inn.
We booked our room 3 months in advance via Expedia. My credit card had already been billed and paid. When we arrived we were told our room was not available because someone else had decided to stay over ( believe it or not ). We were sent to another hotel which also could not provide us a room and finally to a third , all on foot at 01:30 in the AM. A friend of mine had the thing happen to them even though they had called that morning to confirm their room was available. After a long flight, there is no discount worth this kind of service.
I have stayed in Hyatts before and this by far was the most disappointing. The hotel itself is beautiful but they charge for EVERYTHING. Our bathroom was disgusting when we arrived and it took them over a day to clean it. The valets called up late to the room to say our car battery died but they never hit the alarm button. Panic over nothing. There must be better deals in the city than this one.
We arrived and requested a Non-smoking room/ The non-smoking room reaked of smoke. Called down to front desk and was put on hold.
Hyatt was GREAT!
We stayed at the Hyatt on New Jersey Av. in Washington, DC from June 4-9. The rooms were clean, the A/C worked wonderfully and the concierges (Glenn and Arlene) were the BEST!!!! Stay here!
I recently stayed at the Capitol Hill Hyatt. The health club was great
(there's a pool too), location was great, the room was nice but not the
best. I do recommend it though, and would stay again.
Nightmare would be the only word that could describe the checking in process, which took from 1:15 to after 2:15 a.m--and I was the only person there. Despite the fact that I have both reserved the rooms months in advance and had confirmed them that afternoon, there were no rooms that fit our category when we arrrived and the desk wanted to check us in either to unacceptable accompdations or to have us change after 1 night since they didn't wish to upgrade us for the whhole stay--and no the hotel was not full. On the day of departure, we tried for over an hour to be allowed to communicate with the pterson who would permit a later check out, but were told only one person could do this and that person was not available. Also as noted in other comments, there is a charge for parking ($26 per day; $46 for SUV or minivan) and for use of the health facilties and pool ($10/day). Menus were out of date and prices might be significantly off (like soda for $4.50 rather than $2.00). They often forgot to deliver the morning newspapre and it was tough to get adequate towels and toiletries in the rooms. The rroms, however, were okay except for the water pressure being so low that it look forever to be able to bathe and the toilets when flushed didn't really dispose of all the was in them. There are lots of hotels in D.C.; I would recommend that you select a different one.
