We visited DC last week for the first time. This hotel could not have been in a better location to see the sites of our capitol city. It's a block from the Air and Space Museum which is a great starting point to see everything on the National Mall. The hotel is newly renovated. The price is very reasonable considering... More

Fantastic location walking distance to everything but that seems to be all... Aside from being told the ONLY room available is on the train track side on level 3 the same level as them, great view actually.... The air con is motion activated so it turns off while you sleep but that's some what useful because it's so noisy I... More

I'm so sorry you experienced what you did. I can imagine that your check in experience set the stage for your entire visit. I would like to think we are better than what you experienced. I would hope it was just an off moment for one of my staff. I would hope if you are ever back in the area,... More

As good a Holiday Inn as anywhere else in the USA. Fantastic location. For travelers on a budget this is the best option. We flew into Reagan Airport and took the metro for 15 minutes to get to the hotel. The museum mall is less then a block North. There is a McDonald's and PVC Pharmacy/Convenience store less than a...

Thank you for reviewing our hotel and telling others about our location, rooms, staff and free internet. Yes, our pool is outdoors on our roof, but we do extend our pool opening and closing based on the weather. Many outdoor pools are only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. We try our best to work with mother nature and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a road trip from Chicago to Washington DC. Bought the breakfast package for the stay as breakfast in the hotel is not cheap. The package also gives you 50% off parking (normally $37 per night) with unlimited ins and outs! Room clean and tidy, reasonable size with fridge and large flat... More

We stayed here for three nights. The location is great, with the hotel a block away from the National Mall. Although rooms are small, the rooms are clean and you've got everything you need for a good night's sleep. We could cool down in the swimming pool. There's a few restaurants in the hotel but no restaurants close by in... More

Just returned from our second visit to Washington and stayed here both times. The hotel is clean, rooms a great size and staff so helpful. Only drawback is the noise from the train tracks which can be really intrusive in the early hours. Starbucks, bar and bistro on site which was really handy but be prepared for city/hotel prices. Only... More

Thank you for staying with us again. I really appreciate it and for sharing your experience with others. I am curious as to how many you had in your party, $40 does seem high for just a few. I wish you would have asked for a manager, so we could have checked to see if an error had been made.... More

I had never been to Washington D.C. My father has always wanted to go to some of the Smithsonian museums.So for his 80th birthday my daughter and I took him.

It sounds as if you had a great time in the hotel and DC. There is so much to see and do here in our Nation's Capitol. It takes a couple of weeks to see the monuments and visit all of the museums. Plus, the best thing of all is that most of the things to do here is free.... More
