The room was quite good and comfortable, the bed ample and warm. The staff were friendly, the parking was expensive and the breakfast was not included as most other holiday inn we stayed on the Miami area.yu

Very nice establishment. Parking in the garage was $31 extra. Clean room, bath. Staff are super friendly and helpful. I felt comfortable here and had bar dinner the night before and served breakfast the next morning. I hope to return and stay here again.

After seeing the 4 star rating on this hotel, I was slightly disappointed at what I found. Our room, 910, was very worn, but attempts had been made to cover it up. I first noticed the door didn't fit in the frame, there was a huge gap at the top. The heat/air conditioning did not work properly. There was a... More

Great location & fantastic staff, who are very helpful & friendly. They go the extra mile to help the guests. While locking the main door after 11 pm adds sense of security, it feels a bit restrictive since one needs a hotel key to use the lift in any case.

I have stayed at this hotel at least a half dozen times over the last 4 years when traveling to DC for meetings on Capitol Hill. Overall, it is a decent value and rooms are clean and comfortable. My most recent stay was a bit disappointing as I was assigned a room right next to the elevator even though I... More

I stayed here on my first visit to America. The hotel is clean, comfy and a 10 minute walk through a pleasant area from the nearest metro station. There are some nice restaurants and bars nearby. You can easily walk to the White House and national museums.

This hotel is very close to several Metro stations and is in a safe neighborhood. I stayed there 3 nights and came back every day to a spotlessly clean room. The front desk staff was very helpful with directions and even made a special effort to hail a cab for me early one morning. Bed and pillows were very comfortable.... More

Location: About ten minutes walk to the White House and close to the Australian embassy. The hotel is also very close to Foggy Bottom and the many restaurants in the area. Washington DC is noisy but this hotel's location, although close to the centre of the city, is relatively quiet. Rooms: A reasonable size with all the Holiday Inn conveniences.... More
