This HI is well situated, right across from L'Enfant Plaza metro and one block south of the Air and Space museum. A couple of restaurant options in the hotel with average fare and usual hotel mark up, including a Starbucks. So best to look for other options which are few within walking distance, especially on week end when government buildings... More

The location of this hotel is almost perfect. I say "almost" because I feel that by not being North of the National Mall, we may have missed out a bit on the hustle and bustle of DC. However, the location is still awesome. You're two blocks away from the Air and Space Museum. There's a McDonalds one block away (C... More

I had a problem that involved a mobile device and the absence of a printer. Rose Behl at the front desk solved the problem quickly and without fuss. It was an example of hospitality and good training that served the Holiday Inn brand well and was greatly appreciated.

Hotel was nice and clean. Convenient to smithsonian museums, about 2 blocks to Air and Space. There was not many restaurant choices in the area and it was too cold to walk too far so we ended up eating in the hotel which was good. Of course, kids eat free helped us as well. Pool was under renovations and it... More

We really enjoyed the look of the rooms and central location. We were up there the weekend it snowed 9 inches on Saturday. The hotel always had the walkways clear of snow as did the rest of the city which made walking throuhout the day very managable. My room pictures are an exact match to those posted for a king...

I chose this hotel due to its location in relation to my business trip in DC. It was a very welcomed relief to see its only a block away from the L'Enfant Metro Station in extremely cold winter weather. Inside, I found this Holiday Inn to be impressive as most everything is updated, restaurants are fully functioning, and the neighborhood... More

Everything about the hotel was great. It was right next to the Mall, so it was ideal for walking to all the monuments and memorials. Starbucks is downstairs and convenience store is right there, too. The room was clean and the service was very helpful. The only thing that got us was the parking which was something like $37 per... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn, Washington - Capitol for 5 nights in February to explore the museums with our 2 boys (aged 9 and 7). This hotel was in a brilliant location to explore all museums and monuments on foot. It was only 5 min walk for the Air and Space museum, which we visited a number of times.... More

I'm an employee of the IHG company and this by far was one of the better experiences I've had at a Holiday Inn Property while being with the company.
