Customer service needs work! Good luck getting a return call or even someone to talk to about issues.
A Traveler, us1 night business trip
The Capital Hilton, Washington
Service has gone down considerably. When I called room service I was put on hold for 5 minutes. I was out of my room from 9am until 3pm. When I returned my room had not been cleaned. I called housekeeping to report this. 10 minutes went by until someone came to take care of the situation. She made the bed as a 6 year old would have done. That is all she did in my room, make the bed, but nothing else. Lightbulbs in the bathroom were not working. I reported it but nothing was done. I was extremely disappointed with my experience. I doubt that I would stay at the Capital Hilton again.
