The thing with DC hotels is obviously the price. You tend not to expect much out being ripped off. In this case the price is decent, for DC standards of course. It is very well located, near Logan Circle and to the upper part of Downtown. Walking was the main activity, as it allows to be on foot to almost... More

Having finished a program at a different, newer hotel we moved to the more affordable Holiday Inn on Rhode Island NW. By that time we had figured out the Metro System & discovered the Circulator Bus! Best deal going: several routes from Union Station- easy walk from the hotel. Rested and well fed, we continued a great visit in DC.... More

The hotel is very clean and location is great. Our room was comfortable, clean linens, spotless bathroom, extra blankets and pillows already in the room. The only negative: the AC was VERY loud. Luckily it was cool enough for us to do without the AC, but I can't imagine sleeping with that thing on during hot and humid summer. I... More

I stayed in this hotel during a short business trip. The location was very good for my work and is well located for those on a vacation to the city. I wouldn't place a VIP in the hotel, but it is fine for someone travelling and looking for a good price on a centrally located hotel. I had very few... More

Location is good and it is clean. Indeed, its unremarkableness in all regards is probably its finest feature. Neither praise nor complaints. What matters, in the end, is the price. Rubbish if you want a great experience. Fine if you want a clean, unexceptional experience.

Wow, we really picked an ideal hotel for our short trip to Washington. The hotel is ten minutes walk from McPherson Sq Metro from where you can take the Silver Line metro to the airport. Likewise, the White House is only ten minutes walk away. We started a day's sightseeing along the mall at the Lincoln Memorial, only a $10... More

When you are in DC... Stay at the Holiday Inn DC-Central/White House. It is centrally located. I had event to attend at the Convention Center and it was so easy to move about the city while my car was safely parked in the hotel garage. This hotel is the perfect blend...luxury and yet affordable. The staff here were remarkable. I... More

The stay was average. I was here for a week for business. The rooms and halls felt old and stuffy, but they were clean and sufficient. This hotel is well situated within town, however, so it still makes a good choice if you want plenty of landmarks well within walking distance.

This is a typical Holiday Inn. The service is friendly, but the rooms are a bit outdated (and overpriced for what is provided). The buffet breakfast is appealing, but not inexpensive. Despite the “Central” in the name, the hotel is not close to a Metro station or to any major tourist sites. The wifi service is good and free. For... More
