My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights recently. Its only a 5 minute walk to the Air and Space Museum and the National Mall. The 21st amendment bar is a good spot for a meal and drink.

Bed was one of the most confortable i've slept in. Roof top pool with seating area was nice in the evening. A great spot... More

The weekend charge for parking in the garage is $62.72. However, if not a guest, the same garage is available for the weekend fee of $11. While the hotel is clean and convenient, I found this charge to be very unfair. I am not sure how it can be avoided, for once at the desk during check-in, the parking fee... More

Jandy, We appreciate you staying with us at the Holiday Inn Capitol, and that you took the time to write us a review. I am glad you enjoyed your experience with us, although I should mention that the $11 parking rate you noticed at the garage is only valid for one hour, and does not include in and out privileges....

Our magnificent stay at this hotel was from Sunday to Saturday. It was so centrally located that we walked everywhere - Smithsonian, China Town, Capitol, White House, Mall, Monuments. The hotel itself was sleek. We enjoyed dinner in both the restaurant and in the bar. The superb pool is roof top with a large relaxation area and a bar. There... More

Great location Just a block away from Air & Space, and L'Enfant Plaza shopping and transport hub. Rooms nice if basic. Pool is outdoor and isn't open in mornings. Good rating facilities (tried breakfast buffet) and on-site Starbucks. Free wifi.

The hotel is soooo close to the back side of the Air and Space Museum near the L'Enfant plaza metro stop. The rooms are exquisitely decorated and are very spacious. The shower is like a car wash, huge and inviting! Each have a fridge and Keurig Coffee Maker. The street side view is a bit noisy til midnight but the... More

We enjoyed our stay. We arrived in DC in the morning. The hotel wasn't able to let us in our room that early but they did store our bags securely for no charge. The room was clean and comfy, with good beds. It was an ample size for two adults but might be a bit tight if you had 4.... More

We were able to check in early but could have left our bags with the bell hop to explore the city. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They have a list of daily activities around the city organized by hour. The room was super clean and spacious. The A/C has a motion sensor so it goes off... More

That said, the beds are hard. which I ended up liking oddly enough. DO not eat here. The food was fine, but overpriced for the portions. The metro is SO close to this hotel, and it is very easy to get around in DC. WE still did alot of walking, but the Metro made it easy to get to the... More
