Our Family Friendly Services

Capitol Hill Hotel’s safe and central location in the Capitol Hill Historic District is the perfect starting point for a family trip. One of the best family-friendly hotels in Washington, DC, our hotel features spacious family-friendly hotel rooms and suites, equipped with kitchens or kitchenettes with in-room refrigerators. We also offer rollaway beds upon request (based on availability). We are happy to provide continental breakfast and Wi-Fi for the whole family included in your room rate and fees. The little ones will be sure to enjoy kid friendly amenities in our Capitol Kids program, which will make your Washington DC trip extra special. 

Capitol Kids includes:

  • Highchairs
  • Pack ‘n Plays
  • Rollaway beds upon request (based on availability)
  • Non-alcoholic refreshments available during our wine reception (5-6 p.m. in the Library Monday – Thursday). 


Staying at Capitol Hill Hotel is the ideal location to explore all the family-friendly activities DC has to offer, from America’s historic landmarks and museums to the diverse restaurants and cafes of Capitol Hill to Washington DC’s many local boutiques and shops.

One of the reasons why Washington, DC is so kid friendly is the number of free activities for families to explore without spending a dime!  DC has over 160 monuments and memorials to visit – the most popular ones include the Washington Monument, Jefferson, Lincoln and FDR memorials and the memorials dedicated to the soldiers that served in WWI, WWII, Vietnam and Korea. Visiting the White House is also free but you need to plan in advance to request a tour with your local congressman or senator.

Some of the district’s best museum for kids are also free thanks to the expansive and impressive Smithsonian Institute.   The kid-focused exhibits and programming can be found at:

  • Natural History Museum
  • Air and Space Museum
  • American History Museum
  • National Zoo

Check out the Smithsonian App online which allows you to look up kid-specific exhibits and activities and plan a fun day for the whole family.

The DC Metro also makes it easy to take the little ones around town for a day of sightseeing by allowing up to two children under the age of four to ride free with each paying adult. It beats looking for parking as you jump around town!

“CHH is a wonderful hotel for visiting DC, located right on the edge of a residential neighborhood so that you get a flavor of actually living in DC while still being just around the corner from excellent (non-chain) restaurants, coffee etc. It is super-convenient to the Capitol, Library of Congress, and Supreme Court, and all of the Smithsonian museums are just down the hill...The staff are absolutely wonderful -- friendly, efficient, and unfailingly cheerful. This was our third summer of visiting for several weeks -- it has felt like home from the first day and we looked forward to returning each evening. Highly recommended by people who travel a lot .”
