I recently stayed at the holiday Inn in Washington DC and while the location was prime for our stay, the price for the hotel for a minimal hotel was ludacris as well as horrible customer service at the front desk and gift shop. It felt like I was pulling teeth to get directions, to ask for a cab, or to... More

Stayed for 1 night during business trip with my wife! Very helpful and friendly staff, received upgraded room as soon as arrived as I am IHG member. Hotel generally very clean but desperately in need of updating refitting, particularly the elevators and rooms, public areas not so bad! Secure parking at rear of hotel $32.00 per day - bargain for... More

We chose this hotel because it was close to attractions, restaurants and the subway and were pleased with the choice. We arrived in snow - it had snowed all day and we got a cab from the subway. it is an easy 10 mins walk with a wheelie case and hand luggage. The room was perfectly adequate size wise but... More

I stayed there March 14-20, 2015, and was very pleased. Check-in was swift, the staff were very kind, nice and extremely responsive. The food was better than most -- oddly, breakfast delivered to the room was slightly cheaper than eating at the buffet, and arrived on time/hot. BONUS: 2 washers and dryers located on the top floor with a great... More

I stayed here for an extended business trip. I found my room clean, quiet, and cozy. The design of the room was out of yesteryear, but was updated and amenities were modern. The hotel restaurant bar and restaurant are not much to write home about, but they serve decent meals and drinks. One of the best attributes of the hotel... More

The hotel was clean, had comfortable beds, and nice room layouts (ie. two sinks, couches, and chairs). The drawback to this hotel was the considerable walking distance to the Metro and Capital Hill. Also, the morning showers only had about 1-5 minutes off luke warm water then it went cold.

It's a good location - and a relatively good price for the location. Room was typical Holiday Inn. My biggest complaint is simply that about every other time time I left the room, when I came back the key was deactivated. I was very careful to keep it away from my cell phone - but still happened. Very frustrating -... More

I was in town for an event where I would be speaking. Arrived after 10:30 p.m. and after checking into my room, feared I'd get little sleep due to rather loud young guests in the hallway. But it settled down and the bed was so comfortable, I slept fine. Excellent pillows, as strange as that may sound. Had a fine... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and it was an absolutely fantastic hotel. It is a good base and very close to The White House. The bed was very large and comfortable, we had a larger room with a seating area, two large sofas and a second large TV. The hotel is very clean both in the bedrooms and communal... More

Being a seasoned traveller familiar with DC, I found this hotel to be exceptional value for money. I booked a 6 night stay comprising of two rooms for 3 people and the total came in at less than £1000. Very good value for a city centre Hotel. The White House is less than a ten minute walk away.
