The Capitol Hotel places its guests right in the center of the action. With modern decor and functional assets, the Capitol’s rooms are comfortable and chic. However, the main allure of this hotel is its location: it’s a block away from the District and a couple minutes’ walk from major attractions such as the Country Music Hall of Fame.
