We had a great stay at this hotel. We were upgraded to a fmaily suite upon check in which gave us a separate room with a TV, couch, microwave and fridge. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. The location is great and close to good dining options and even a whole foods store. There is free coffee and... More

The Hotel was clean and comfortable. The Hotel allowed us to park our car free of charge after check out, which was nice. It's within walking distance to the Whitehouse We would stay there again. The Restaurant was okay.

We stayed here for 5 nights while on our DC vacation. The hotel was nice - nothing super fancy, but clean with very friendly and helpful staff. They were always ready to help hail a cab or make suggestions on what to do. We had a relatively minor incident in the restaurant, which was handled with professionalism. There is parking... More

If you're looking for a hotel near the White House that is clean, comfortable and with lots of friendly employees--don't pass up this one. I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and I will be back when I return to DC. 1. Clean rooms--I noticed that when people left my floor, the hotel cleaned the carpets. I'm not sure... More

Very nice accommodations. I was not happy that I had to pay for a roll away bed, since I clearly stated there were 3 of us and i would require 2 queen size beds. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Service in the restaurant was excellent, very efficient and always on the spot to keep coffee etc. full at the table. Enjoyed... More

This Holiday Inn is located in central DC and very convenient to many things. Amenities were good and the staff was attentive. It was an enjoyable, average stay. Hidden gem was the bar and the strawberry sangria. You have to try one!! Minor annoyance was the gift shop. It appears leased to an outside business, so you don't have the... More

A very old hotel that desperately needs renovation. The rooms a literally "tearing apart" and giving you the feeling you sleep in a hostel. Very much under the standard for Holiday Inn. Don’t be tempted by the low price. It is just doesn’t worth it!

I've stayed at this hotel twice, and this time was even better than the last. It's an ideal location to see the White House, with easy access to the mall. The hotel is large, always bustling with people. There is a parking garage underneath the hotel, and it's a tough place to park, even if you have a small car.... More

A few blocks away from the White House and other capitol attractions and a very friendly, warm and pleasant check in manager by the name of Joy. Those are the only positives. This is otherwise a low end business hotel for those on a tight budget. The breakfast buffet is very low standard and the staff are quite sour-faced, not... More

This hotel was affordable and centrally located in the city. Everything we did was just a short cab ride away. The staff was extremely helpful whenever we had any tourist type questions. We could have been closer to some of the sites, but not for the price we paid. If you visiting DC, I would recommend the Holiday Inn Central... More
