Easy access to the city's monuments and memorials, spacious accommodations, and reasonable rates make the Capital Hilton irresistible for our guests. And the top-to-bottom renovation of this historic hotel's rooms and suites, completed in 2010, doesn't hurt, either. The 12-story hotel, one of the city's landmarks, has 544 newly-redecorated rooms that retain hints the original neoclassical style while adding modern luxuries like pillowtop beds and luxurious linens. Every room has a 42-inch flat-panel TV and a dock for your mp3 player as well as Wi-Fi access (for a fee). The gleaming bathrooms have marble vanities, glass-enclosed showers, and an array of high-end bath products. Fitness buffs appreciate access to a health club with free weights, cardio machines and spa treatments. There's a top-rated restaurant, and you can also opt for dinner, or any meal, in your room. The downtown location, three blocks north of the White House, is hard to beat. The Renwick Gallery of arts and crafts is four blocks away, while the stellar collection of art at the Corcoran Gallery of Art is just two blocks beyond that. The Washington Monument and the National Mall are less than a 15-minute walk away. The city's Metro system is clean and quick, and the Farragut North, Farragut West, and McPherson Square Metro stations are all within four blocks. Just five miles away is Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, reachable by taxi 15 minutes. The Capital Hilton proves that staying a downtown hotel, even a high-end one, doesn't have to empty your wallet. The quick walk to all the sights is the icing on the cake.
