We really liked the hotel - the room was spacious and clean, the location is a nice 10-15 minute walk from the White House, the staff was very friendly and all the facilities we used were A okay (laundry room, fitness room, swimming pool, lobby computers etc). The fact is, we didn't use the restaurant at all so we cannot... More

This hotel although not next door to the White house is within walking distance of many attractions. You dont spend time reaching the attractions. Very clean and spacious rooms, like a small suite, just what I wanted since I was travelling with my family, we could experience the buzz on the street. Very friendly staff and good facilities at the... More

First of all, this hotel was a earned free night by a major booking company. There was 3 of us, my husband, 15 year old son, and myself. We were given a view of a wall, a standard room ( that means 2full beds for 3 full size adults) . That was not the hotel's fault, it was the booking... More

Firstly, if you think due to its name that this hotel is the nearest to the White House, you'd be wrong. In fact it wouldn't surprise me if there's 100 hotels in DC closer to the White House than this one. But then there's a lot of hotels in DC, so maybe it means you can see the White House... More

We stayed here for 15 nights while visiting. The location and price was great. The room was clean and comfortable. There were also extras like a free self service laundry which was very important for such a long trip. Reception did a good job in receiving my Amazon purchases. The gym was small but functional. It can get a little... More

Visited over the 4th of July. Loved that it was centrally located and there was a Whole Foods right around the corner. Within walking distance of the White House and National monuments. Nice, clean room. Friendly staff. Nice rooftop pool. Will definitely stay here on a return trip to the D.C. area.

My wife and I were in Washington DC for a UN conference and the Holiday Inn Central had a great conference rate. This hotel was only two blocks from our conference venue and we had a very nice visit. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations, and the accommodation was comfortable, basic, and very quiet - just... More

This is a nice hotel well located and more affordable than other hotels in DC. We spent three nights there and got no problems. The staff is quite efficient although not always warm and friendly, but in general helpful. We did not get too many alternatives to our questions such as how to rent bikes or transport to the airport... More

Fine hotel for a family of four. The kids loved the pool on the rooftop and breakfast was ok. Central location and friendly staff. Nice rooms with comfortable beds. We will sure make a stay there again next time we visit Washington.

I've stayed at this hotel multiple times for business and with friends. I think this hotel is pretty standard to the other holiday inns. The only complaint I have is about the parking. Most hotels in the city with a lofty parking fee have valet. The parking garage is directly behind the hotel, but its incredibly easy to drive right... More
