This has been the second time our group has stayed here over the past 2 years. The location is central on The Mall, and the price is comparable, maybe slightly less than most other hotels. We have always been satisfied with the accommodations, the service has been all we expected, and therefore, I would recommend this Holiday Inn to anyone... More

I had a very pleasant experience with the front desk at this hotel. Front desk staff Marilyn and Jamie helped me made reservations, worked on the bills for my guests from China, who don't speak English. They were patient, cheerful, and pleasant to work with. I appreciate they were able to work with me patiently. My guests had a pleasant... More

During this trip we had a chance to stay at this Holiday Inn and also at the one near the Capitol. I would strongly recommend to choose the one near Capitol. First, I felt that the name of this Holiday Inn is tricky: "Central/White House" gives you the impression that it is very close to WH, but this is not... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here the night before the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler. We wanted an inexpensive hotel near the race. We were lucky we found this place and booked early. It was the cheapest we could find within walking distance. That being said it was not a cheap hotel. The staff was courteous and helpful. The interiors were... More

We stayed recently at the holiday inn, the staff were very helpful and cheerful, the hotel was near to places we wanted to visit, the bed was comfortable and the sheets clean, the wifi was free and there were no problems with connection. The decor is a little outdated but that did not spoil our experience. We ate in the... More

I found this hotel experience spoiled by the wait staff in the diningroom who were very pushy and demanding of what they felt was their right...a Tip. I thought this was optional for good service. The desk staff though helpful I felt this was done grudgeingly. We were on the second floor....traffic was noisy as was the airconditioner....the maintenence man... More

This hotel is not up to snuff. I am surprised it's a Holiday Inn because it is substandard given my past experiences at Holiday Inn which have been consistently pleasant. Our room was dirty...really dirty... and in disrepair. I posted pictures. The front desk staff was rude and unhelpful with one exception. Our room had a little sign that said... More

Stayed here for overnight, great stay. The hotel has been renovated, restaurant, lobby looks great. It is a very peaceful area but has everything at stone throw away distance. I was given a room which did not had a great view but I enjoyed my stay, One can always ask the staff for Rhode Island view.

The hotel being called central/white house - I thought would be closer to everything than it actually was, it was about a 20 min walk to the white house, which is fine, I just wasn't expecting it to be that far. Hotel reception/bar area was light, airy, clean and the staff welcoming and friendly. The restaurant was ok, service was... More

This is a great spot in the middle of DC! Close to a ton of great restaurants, short walk to the White House, and the Mall. The rooms are fresh, staff was friendly and knew the best places to eat. Of course, they have a full restaurant on site if you want to dine in. If you drive, parking in... More
