Perfectly situated hotel about 5 minutes walk from L'enfant Plaza where you can easily take the subway to Arlington Cemetary or Union Station (which is very handy for getting trains to/from Baltimore Airport or getting the Amtrak both which I did). I walked pretty much everywhere; the hotel is 5 mintes walk from Smithsonian Air and Flight museum. Over the... More

We stayed here for a week and had a tremendous time! The location is PERFECT!!! We loved being able to walk to the mall and loved being able to get "home" quickly! It was busy, busy, busy! Although we had a glitch in our reservation because we used a third party source, the staff at the Holiday Inn was nothing... More

This hotel was booked for me by a co worker for a business trip so I was staying here without doing any research first, which is totally unlike me! I was not disappointed! Check in was a breeze, staff was excellent, room was spacious, spotless and almost silent at night! Ac was nice and cool, keurig in the room with... More

We were looking for a hotel right in the heart of Washington's mall and this one fitted the bill. Everything was within walking distance. Hotel rom excellent, very we'll maintained, comfortable and spacious. Only had one meal in the hotel but that was good too. Pool ok, but a little cool on the days we were there. Recommended.

Great room but watch out for parking!! The hotel parking is an underground garage and you must be checked in with the proper tags for the car in order to park there. So, I was dropped off and my husband drove around the block until I texted him that I was done checking in and then he picked me up... More

I really appreciate you and your family staying with us (and not the Willard). As to your question about showers, only our king rooms have showers, all other rooms have tubs. With regard to our parking, the garage as you experienced is under the entire building. Since our building is connected to various government agencies, there are security officers that... More

This hotel was nicer than most Holiday Inns that I've stayed in. It is in a great location for DC sight-seeing. We like to walk and went everywhere from the Capitol and Union Station, to the White House and the Lincoln and Jefferson monuments on foot. We had rented a car, but only used it to get to and from...

I stayed here for one night since I had business to do at Rayburn Building (House of Representative Offices) the next morning. Rayburn is very close and the price for the Holiday Inn was very reasonable for DC. Rooms were comfortable and quiet.

The rooms were reasonably priced, clean, quiet and updated from the pictures we viewed online. We were on the courtyard side on the 7th floor and we were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the room. This is an excellent location for sightseeing families. The Air and Space Museum is 2 short blocks away and it is about as close... More

This is a very nice Holiday Inn with clean rooms and nice amenities. Unless your an earlier riser, make sure you get rooms on the C street side of the building, the other rooms hear the train whistle blowing. Great location to the sites and to the National Mall.
