This was a perfect location for our trip. We were in Washington to run the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler. This hotel was close to the start and we were able to walk over. The hotel is also very close to the L'Enfant Metro stop. For us this worked well, we parked our car in New Carrollton and took the Metro... More

My daughtesr and I stayed here for two nights in mid-February on a trip to visit friends and the museums. Since our goal was to see as much of the Mall as possible in a short amount of time, the location was ideal. I was also travelling with two little girls, so limiting the amount of distance they had to... More

I spent two nights at this property because of a nearby conference. The newly renovated room was spacious and nicely decorated. A variety of different pillows was available on the bed - with the softness stitched into the pillowcase! The staff was cheerful, courteous and helpful. A few comments: getting a taxi was hit or miss; there was no employee... More

We had previously chosen the Holiday Inn at 1917 Bladensburg Rd NE, Washington, DC 20002...we chose to move closer to the Mall and Capital and chose this location instead....good thing, the Bladensburg location is not near anything and there was a kidnapping at that hotel during our trip. The Capital Location is amazing! Perfect location, price is high but understandable... More

My partner and I stayed two nights at the Holiday Inn and it was a great stay that we had! Our room was on the 9th floor and I think we may of been the first to stay in the newly renovated room! There was a few rooms around us still being renovated but that didn't bother us at all.... More

We spent one night here. The hotel is on a relatively quiet street that is not too busy. It is near the mall and all of the museums. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see. The room was large and very clean. We used the garage for our car and were able to go in and... More

This hotel was okay. I stayed there because it was convenient to the seminars I attended. The staff was very nice. There was nothing worth remembering about the hotel, except for a few days there was a large group of kids (middle school students?) who spent a lot of time in the hallways and lobby. There was no place to... More

We do appreciate your business. Our hotel is one block from the National Mall. We are in a quiet, safe part of the city. If you are interested in restaurants or night clubs, they can be easily gotten to by either walking approximately 7 blocks, taking the Metro or a taxi. More

Our weekend trip to DC was ruined by staying here. We were placed between rooms of visiting high schoolers. The walls are paper thin, so every joke, song or discussion was clearly audible through the walls. When they finally went to bed at midnight, we were awakened by the 6 am building construction next door. The very thin walls did... More

I'm so sorry you experienced what you did. We do have school groups stay with us, especially in the spring. They come to DC for their school spring break. As far as construction, the construction team is not supposed to start that early. I'm so sorry they did. The majority of our renovation is now over. The construction team does... More

We had a great stay. There is still some renovations going on. The room next to ours was completely gutted. Our room had just been completed. Very comfortable and everything was new.
