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. The staff... More

I stayed here with my wife and daughter for 3 nights. The rooms were clean but I think the housekeepers could've done a better job as we found hair in the sink and tub. Bell men were very nice and courteous. We were told that our child will eat for free in the restaurant so my wife and I gave... More

This hotel is in a fabulous location and only a couple of blocks down from the Whitehouse. Not only that, but the staff behind the desk are incredibly friendly, kind and patient and efficient at dealing with your requests.

We stayed here twice at the start and end of our holiday. It was 90 degrees when we arrived on 3rd September 2014 and we had specifically booked the hotel because it was one of the few in Washington with an outdoors pool. However, this hotels in Washington closes its pool on Labour Day which was prior to our arrival!... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn because of price. I wish I paid a little more for a better hotel. The service was okay, the room was clean, but it is older, and the breakfast in the morning was expensive and tasted poor. They overcooked the ages and steak. Anyhow, there are a lot better places to stay than this place.

The location of this hotel was quite good, and we felt very safe. A nice leisurely walk from the hotel, takes you to The White House, and the National Mall. Rooms were very clean, and spacious, with wonderful comfy beds. Staff were extremely helpful, and pleasant. We also had one of the most delicious breakfasts we've ever had.

The room was quite good and comfortable, the bed ample and warm. The staff were friendly, the parking was expensive and the breakfast was not included as most other holiday inn we stayed on the Miami area.yu

Very nice establishment. Parking in the garage was $31 extra. Clean room, bath. Staff are super friendly and helpful. I felt comfortable here and had bar dinner the night before and served breakfast the next morning. I hope to return and stay here again.

After seeing the 4 star rating on this hotel, I was slightly disappointed at what I found. Our room, 910, was very worn, but attempts had been made to cover it up. I first noticed the door didn't fit in the frame, there was a huge gap at the top. The heat/air conditioning did not work properly. There was a... More
