I stayed four nights at this hotel for a conference. Overall very good stay, lovely room, accommodating staff. Excellent breakfast buffet -- really appreciated the made-to-order omelets! Great location -- central to all the action and great restaurants. I was very surprised at the tiny elevators, and no freight elevators (one day custodial staff were hauling in new mattresses and...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn because the week I was visiting was one in which there must have been a million things happening in DC. I couldn't find any of my regular DC hotels for a decent price (they were all 2-3 times more expensive than usual). Luckily, I stumbled across the Holiday Inn at a reasonable price (I... More

We enjoyed our stay at this property. The room was spacious enough. The bathroom was very small though, however, this is just a point to note.It did not deter from our stay. Centrally located and an easy 15-20 minute walk down to Washington Monument/White House precinct. The Buffet breakfast was above average. Equally so was the evening meals in the... More

I made reservations for two rooms for three nights a full four months in advance of our stay and yet it seemed that nothing was ready or correct when we arrived. I was traveling with students and, as a teacher, I must sleep alone, not in a shared bed with a student, so I needed a cot, even though a... More

Family of four (w 2 teenagers) stayed for two nights to see the White House, Capitol and the Mall. The hotel was as expected; centrally located, nice and clean. Very nice food in the restaurant, both breakfast and dinner. Good service at front desk. Rooms were spacious and clean. The youngsters appreciated the swimming pool and the wifi. We'll be... More

The room was average, staff was very nice and helpful. They helped us book a night tour of the monuments which was great. The restaurant was pretty expensive and the food wasn't great. There were some nice places to eat in walking distance. Just be careful out there, the streets were crazy for divers, pedestrians, and cyclists.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel....and especially the pool as there was a bit of a heat wave going on. While the pool is plain its on the roof so has a view too...and was very clean and well maintained. Our room was of a good size and the bed very comfortable. The staff were very accommodating and engaging....... More

We recently stayed here for three nights with our grandchildren, aged 8 and 11 in a King room with a pull out. I had checked out other hotels but at more than twice the price could not justify a four or five star hotel for this trip. The hotel is well located in a pretty part of DC, lots of... More

Everything you expect from a Holiday Inn: good location and all the conveniences. It's in a pretty corner of DC, surrounded by Victorian buildings. Lots of restaurants of all descriptions, and walking distance to the DC attractions: 15 minutes to the White house, 30 to the Capitol or the Lincoln Memorial. TV, good WiFi (including printing facility), tea/coffe/hot chocolate, a... More

The location of this hotel is ideal for walking and seeing most sights. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is rather pricy for the items offered. And staff was rather slow to wait on our table and also to bring the food.
