After reading some of the reviews I was a little nervous about what I had booked. All of my fears were put to rest upon our arrival! It was clean and comfortable and it was great (even though you have to pay for it) to park our car in the underground garage and not have to worry about our vehicle.... More

We stayed at HI Central for three nights over the July 4th week-end. Hotel is conveniently located, within walking distance of the metro in what I would consider a safe area. For those who don't mind walking---the National Mall is actually a pleasant walk. Hotel staff was very courteous and accommodating. As Priority Club members, we were upgraded to a... More

I needed an affordable, clean place with in-room internet access where I would be comfortable sitting and doing work between meetings. I found one other more affordable place in the Dupont vicinity, but moved out after a night because it just wasn't comfortable enough. My room at the Holiday Inn was clean, comfortable and surprisingly well appointed for the price.... More

Hotel was clean, rooms were comfortable, staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The only drawback was the proximity to the Metro, the walk was a good 5-7 minutes which in the morning didn't seem bad however, in the afternoon/evening the walk was a long one.

The restaurant was adequate for breakfast and we found the staff very friendly. We found distances from Mall/centre no real problem even without a car Would recommend for... More

This hotel advertises its proximity to the White House. It is really more aptly named "Holiday Inn at Logan Circle. There is parking at this hotel and free internet. The self parking was $28 with in and out privileges, which we made good use of. The underground lot is convenient, but may be difficult to navigate with a larger vehicle.... More

I've never stayed in a Holiday Inn before and chose this one due to a recommendation in a Travel booklet. I was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful hotel, immaculate room, and wonderful staff. Everyone from the front desk to the cleaning staff to the restaurant staff were top-notch professionals. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable. The hotel is located... More

We visited the Holiday Inn Washington - Central White House during the 2009 Inauguration. Since we had booked 11 months in advance on Priority Club points, our first fear was that the reservation might be "lost" at a time when Washington DC hotels were commanding their highest rates. There was nothing to worry about. Not only was our reservation completely... More
