We arrived at this hotel by mistake - was actually booked into another DC Holiday Inn. Front desk staff, Nejib, was friendly and helpful and got our reservation changed. So glad we stayed at this hotel...a great location right near the National Mall. Easy walk to everything we wanted to see. Not many restaurants in the area but the hotel's... More

I stayed here with my family for 6 nights (we have two children ages 10 and 12). We were very pleased with this hotel. As others have said, the location is ideal. A couple of blocks away from the Air and Space Museum and the Mall. The L'Enfant Metro station is also very close. So it is easy to get... More

This is a great hotel for sightseeing in Washington. The rooms are clean, modern, and comfortable. Service was efficient - we were checked in and out very quickly. The location is very convenient - 5 minutes walk to Air & Space museum, 3 minutes to the Plaza L'Enfant metro station, and walkable distance to most of the museums and attractions... More

They thought of everything! Clean room, best and most thorough bathroom amenities, significant & thoughtful lighting in rooms. Great location to National Mall & metro station. Starbucks at corner, restaurant on-site. Very pleased with our 4 night stay. Fair price for the room & amenities.

My son and husband were unable to go last minute to this hotel, but our older husband and wife traveling companions got to go. These are 65-plus aged people, and the husband had a bad knee. They were met at the door by a very courteous employee who helped them with their bags. They were greeted warmly at check-in and... More

Hotel is OK, gets a better review because of it's position - it's only five minutes walk to the Air Space Museum and from there you can walk to many other tourist attractions. Downside is the restaurant, the food is at best average but expensive so if you can I'd avoid it and go elsewhere. Restaurant row is about 15... More

The Holiday Inn Washington - Capitol is located just about a block from the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, and all of the most important sites to visit in Washington are within walking distance. Check-in was smooth, and the room was clean and seemed recently updated. Staff was friendly and helpful, and always wore a smile. The price is high,... More

Rooms were recently remodeled. Hotel was clean. They were remodeling the pool on the 9th floor so that couldn't be used but then again we weren't there for the pool. Two restaurants on site. Food was good but as with anything around a tourist area it's a little on the high side. The metro was a block away. If you've... More

This Holiday Inn is in a great location if you are wanting to visit the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. It's 2 blocks away and other Museum are in close proximity. Getting to the Lincoln Memorial is a bit of a walk. Capital Hill is close but it is on a bit of an incline. Hotel itself is good... More
