Both are nice. Capitol Hill is more quaint and has better metro (and interstate) access.

Cap Hill gets my vote all day long. Barracks Row and Navy Yard are within walking distance. There really is no hub for nightlife in DC. I mean Adams Morgan has historically attracted young people who want to get wasted, Logan Circle is older and classier, Georgetown is more full of s**t, and other neighborhoods have their own vibe. Woodley Park is very boring in my opinion. Sure, you can take the short trek down to Dupont but Dupont isn't what it used to be. With all the gentrification DC has gone through over the years a lot of places that were destination neighborhoods have been taken over. If these are the two options that most interest you I would take Cap Hill all day long. You'll get bored real fast in Woodley unless you like quiet neighborhoods.

People talk trash about Georgetown because they can't afford it and a lot of the people that live there also went to Georgetown so it has an elitist vibe.

There's no reason to say things about it like this.

People trash talk Georgetown because it sucks. No metro, tons of tourists, meh restaurants. Nothing about Georgetown interests me. I've lived in DC for 7 years and hate going to Georgetown as I think its pretentious. Most of the people you see out and about don't live in Georgetown. It's mostly people who live in MD or VA and that's the only area they care to venture to because they don't know DC well. I attracts posers from outside the area for sure so they can't tell everyone they were in Georgetown. Whoopdy Doo! I much prefer downtown DC to Georgetown.
