Located near the city's baseball stadium and offering free Wi-Fi the Capitol Skyline Hotel is a hit with our guests who are fans of fun and funky mid-century modern decor. With 203 rooms on seven floors this 1961 hotel was treated to a head-to-toe makeover in 2009. The lobby is a welcome surprise with South Beach-style furnishings in eye-catching shades of red and orange. The lounge continues the theme with its low-slung leather couches intended for kicking back. The sunny outdoor pool large enough to host Olympic events is a perfect place to cool off during the summer months - as is the poolside bar. Accommodations are designed for work and play with both a spacious desk and a flat-panel TV. Complimentary Wi-Fi in the rooms and public areas means you can stay connected. Nationals Park home of the Washington Nationals baseball team is four blocks south. Arena Stage one of the country's best regional theaters is five blocks west. The U.S. Capitol is a 20-minute walk and the National Air and Space Museum is about 25. The Navy Yard and Waterfront stations of D.C.'s speedy Metro system are both three blocks away so you can reach more far-flung attractions in no time. Because the hotel has easy access to the highway - I-95 is a block north - you can drive the five miles to Ronald Reagan National Airport in about 12 minutes. our guests appreciate the Capitol Skyline Hotel for its "comfortable" rooms "very good staff" and a location that's "a 5- to 10-minute walk from the metro station for easy access to the city center."
