4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for 6 nights here in June 2015. We had two queen beds in the room and had plenty of space to spread out. This was perfect for the adults and two grandkids. The L'Enfante metro station is just a block or two away, and the Air & Space museum is only 2 blocks away. We ended up walking... More

This is the third hotel we've stayed at in DC the past three years and is definitely the best. We avoided it in the best because it tended to be about $25 more per night than other places. We won't avoid it again. The extra $25 is definitely worth it. We had a pacckage that included breakfast for to adults... More

The best thing about this hotel is it's a couple of blocks from the Smithsonian and close to the Memorials. You can't beat it. We left our car in the parking structure the whole time. Not a lot of restaurants close so bring snacks with you.

good location; close to the Smithsonian; bathroom could do with a few more hooks for hanging towels - especially if three or four adults staying; restaurant could offer bit more variety for dinner; breakfast was good selection but found a bit expensive compared to other hotels which had stayed at previous to our arrival

This place was great we walked maybe two blocks to the Air and Space Museam. Close to all attractions we walked everywhere to the Washington Monument, White House, Capitol Building each one of these is like over mile a away but if you are in decent shape you can walk it. The Metro is also about a block from the... More

As far as Holiday Inn's go, this one is very nice. There is nothing really to speak of in the neighborhood other than office buildings, but the proximity to the capital, monuments, and metro stops is ideal. The service leaves some to be desired. If you are looking for a reasonably priced, clean stay with a great central location, this... More

Close to the Smithsonian and other museums on the Mall as well as NASA HQ. For that reason, can't beat it. Just wish they had restaurants nearby other than the 21st amendment and McDonald's (deli wasn't open when we went there.). Parking is convenient. With renovations at the time, the public bathroom was actually in the connected office building.

While this Holiday Inn is clean and well appointed the service is really lacking. Starting with a very long line for check in, no real greeting from the person at the front desk, rather sterile checkin process. Almost had to beg for welcome amenity. I've stayed more than 30 nights in Holiday Inns this year, and this one is by... More

We were in Washington for a week and the location was very convenient. The room was quite large with everything fairly new. The staff was friendly. The rooftop pool was nice, but the new fitness center was not done yet. I would stay again.

Very, Very close to all Smithsonian attractions, Metro and VRE stations. There is a CVS next door and a Starbucks and Quiznos and McDonalds and nail place. The rooms are very clean and roomy. The staff is friendly and helpful. Parking Garage is convenient and elevators require a room key for safety. Will stay here everytime I come
