I stayed here on my first visit to America. The hotel is clean, comfy and a 10 minute walk through a pleasant area from the nearest metro station. There are some nice restaurants and bars nearby. You can easily walk to the White House and national museums.

This hotel is very close to several Metro stations and is in a safe neighborhood. I stayed there 3 nights and came back every day to a spotlessly clean room. The front desk staff was very helpful with directions and even made a special effort to hail a cab for me early one morning. Bed and pillows were very comfortable.... More

Location: About ten minutes walk to the White House and close to the Australian embassy. The hotel is also very close to Foggy Bottom and the many restaurants in the area. Washington DC is noisy but this hotel's location, although close to the centre of the city, is relatively quiet. Rooms: A reasonable size with all the Holiday Inn conveniences.... More

I will always remember the Holiday Inn Central DC for how noisy it was. I was constantly aware of traffic noise during my 2 nights there even though I was on the 7th floor. Other impressions include a wobbly mattress, flat pillows and carpets that were a little less fastidiously clean than I like them; bearing in mind that I'm... More

For the quality of this hotel and its location, this is a very good value. I stayed two nights and found it very convenient to everything on the north side of the city. A small café and a reasonably sized restaurant are on site. The bartender was particularly engaging and a good ambassador for both the hotel and the city.

Thanks to Jamie Jackson, I had a great night's sleep. She was working the night desk when I went downstairs and asked if I could change rooms because the 2nd floor had been noisy during the night. She moved me to the highest floor, near the back of the hotel and made sure I loved the room. Customer service made... More

The location of the hotel is convenient....several restaurants in walking distance. Hotel itself needs an uplift...you can sense the need right from the moment you step into the lobby. Rooms were OK...nothing exciting about them. I will avoid going there as there are several other good choices in the area.

I stayed here for three nights during a recent business trip. The hotel is conveniently located for visits to many agencies and departments. For example, I only had quarter of a mile to walk to my meeting. In addition, the White House and the National Mall are quite close for an afterwork walk. Reception was quick and efficient, which I... More

Ideally situated for tourist attractions, public transport and food! This hotel is a good location for business people or family holidays! I stayed for 7 nights and I found the service very friendly! If I was ever to return to Washington I would stay here! My advice would be, don't get a room facing the main road. It gets noisy... More
