The Capital Hotel Review

Nothing is ever too much at this elegant hotel that was formerly a private house—mattresses are handmade, sheets are 450-thread count, bathrooms are marble, and everything is done in impeccable taste. There are fine-grain woods, original prints, and soothing, country-chic furnishings throughout, and service is understated. All the rooms are spacious, but ask for one facing the front to get more space. The Outlaws at the Capital restaurant is a famous gathering place of the rich and famous—its Michelin star means that you'll need to book your table well in advance.

    Traveled in March with my 12 year old son. After much internet research, chose this hotel because it seemed like a classy hotel offering personal service and convenience for a good value through the US$ package. Stayed for five nights in a deluxe room, room 259, facing a service courtyard. OVERALL, I'd say that the experience wasn't at all as I had expected; however, it also wasn't a total bust. Have stayed in a variety of types of hotels in England, France and Italy as well as the Caribbean and US, so I don't think that my expectations were unrealistic. Thought I was getting a great value with the US$ package -- a sophisticated, five star hotel and exceptional service at a four star rate. However, I feel like I got a poorly maintained three star hotel with inconsistent service at a four star rate.
