Very comfortable hotel, good position about ten minute walk to Dupont Circle. Short walk from some excellent restaurants on 14th street and 17th Street. My room was large with two double beds, writing desk, small seating area. Good bathroom with full bath/shower. Coffee/tea making facility. Some noise from refurbishing, TV kept cutting out, but generally no complaints. Free WIFI throughout.

Booked this hotel as it was easy to access major tourist attractions. The rooms were well furnished but the communal areas looked a little worn out. There were some renovations under way so this will probably improve. Pros Easy to walk to White House and National Mall ( within 15-20 mins) Friendly reception and restaurant staff. Efficient in sorting out... More

The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. The location is good--about a 10 minute walk from a couple of metro stations. The room was clean and orderly. The cheeseburger at the restaurant was juicy and the fries very tasty. Breakfast was very good with a very large selection of items. Would definitely stay again.

Ubicated only 4 block from White House. You can walk all around. Markets, restaurant, bar, store around the corner. Horrible pool in the roof. Charge for parking. Included hot breakfast is bad. If you want better have to pay for it.

It was a decent place but could've been so much better. The rooms and general decorum were great, with very clean bathrooms. Room service cleared up everything everyday with perfection. The location was excellent as well and the WiFi was fast. However, the breakfast was pretty pathetic. The food was good, but limiting it to two per room made no... More

I wasn't too impressed when I allowed my travel consultant to book hotels in Boston and DC...and she recommended Holiday Inns. I guess my non-American view was of cheap,rather dingy establishments in need of refurbishment. Not so here. We spent six days in DC last November in glorious, unseasonably warm weather. Our welcome at this hotel was warm as well.... More

We had arrived on DC for the last week in May. We had only backpacks and had travelled on Amtrak from Chicago. Our station was about 6-8 blocks away and we chose to walk to the hotel.
