This is an ultra luxury experience. The staff is extremely cordial and the room, a deluxe suite was amazing. Don't miss the rooftop deck and lounge area.

Perfect 50th AnniversaryPosted Feb 28, 2015
Pros: Newness. Thoughtful aesthetic design. Staff's awareness and service. Outstanding food. Room technology, including a private safe for valuables.
Cons: Can't think of anything. Oh, maybe a nightlight in the bathroom.
Location: Great walking. Variety of restaurants and retail stores. Movie theater. Public transportation to Capitol and museums.
My wife and I wanted to treat ourselves to a luxurious, adult hotel while staying in DC for our 50th wedding anniversary. Don't think we could have done better than Capella. Georgetown is a pleasure for diners. Public transportation -- the "Circulator", Metro, busses, and cabs -- are so convenient and inexpensive. 50 cents each for seniors to get to Union Station at the Capitol. Capella is a wonderful place to come to after a day of touring. Capella treated us exceptionally. EG, provided breakfast while we waited for an early room. Complimentary champagne for our first night. The staff was always interested in our comings and goings in a genuine, friendly way. Unique hotel setup, an outstanding design, not only physically but psychologically. It's very secure. The two-year-old Capella is real classy, but the staff makes it equally homey. We loved the indoor/outdoor pool. One morning we swam in the falling snow! What fun, what freedom. We look forward to another reason to celebrate like this.

Great customer service, some room issuesPosted Jan 13, 2015 on Hotels.com
The customer service in every aspect was impeccable. The room was clean and the location of the hotel(Georgetown) is very good. However, there were a few issues with the following: water kept leaking from the shower into the rest of the bathroom each time we took a shower. We complained, maintenance crew came promptly, however, the leak continued, likely due to faulty shower design more than anything. We asked for foam pillows, did not get them for a couple of days. The curtains and bedside lights are controlled by remote panels; the control panel on one side of the bed did not work, had to use the master panel to turn everything off.

Hotellet du ikke vil hjem fra!Posted Dec 9, 2014
Pros: Placering, standard, værelsets indretning og stand, personalet
Cons: Mere skabsplads
Location: Beliggende i Georgetown i gåafstand til shopping og restauranter. Det Hvide Hus og The National Mall ligger 10 minutters kørsel derfra.
TripAdvisor placerer dette hotel som nr. 2 i Washington. Vores forventninger var derfor høje og alle vores forventninger (og flere til) blev indfriet. Hotellet er beliggende i hyggelige Georgetown - i gåafstand til shopping og restauranter. Det tager ca. 10 minutter i taxa at køre til Det Hvide Hus & The National Mall. Hotellets personale yder en formidabel service 24/7 - man føler sig meget velkommen. Værelset var luksoriøst og indbydende med udsigt mod kanalen. Vil man forkæle sig selv, er dette stedet at tage til. Vi kommer meget gerne tilbage og anbefaler på det varmeste hotellet.

DC for 4 nightsPosted Sep 9, 2014
Pros: Small, boutiquey, personal service, centrally located, great bar and pool deck and bar too, beautiful outdoor cafe
Location: In the middle on Georgetown which means great shops and cafes
Nice Boutique Hotel in Georgetown. Only issue is that it is one a 2 way ridiculously narrow street. So if you are driving, good luck.

Wonderful hotel located in beautiful GeorgetownPosted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: The location is great for exploring the Georgetown neighborhood - near fine dining, shopping, the canal, and the river. I felt very safe.
Cons: I would have liked to have access to ice. They gladly brought it when we needed it, but I wouldn't mind getting my own.
Location: It is near the Old Stone House, Potomac River, lots of restaurants, tons of shopping. We walked to Georgetown U and to monuments, kind of far though.
The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We got apple tarts and chocolates in the evening and a nice little breakfast in the "living room" in the morning - fruit, pastries, coffee. We were offered water bottles as we left; it was a very hot and humid day, so they were very much appreciated! There is a coffee machine and tea pot in the room as well as cold beverages - all included. The rooftop bar is very relaxing; we were up there during a rain shower and it was so peaceful. The drinks were good; I had a limeade cocktail that was super refreshing. They were very expensive though - our bill was over $90 and that included the cocktail and 2 glasses of red wine.

Great hotel in ideal locationPosted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: It was very luxurious, the rooms were lovely, the restaurant and bar were great, and the staff very good
Cons: The rooftop bar area is very disappointing, and didn't live up to expectations
Location: Lots of excellent shopping and dining close by. Waterfront right there. Slight disadvantage is nearest Metro 20 mins walk.
This hotel is very plush, and very well stuated close to the waterfront and Georgetown facilities
