This is my third time staying at this hotel. The service is always friendly. The rooms are small but very clean and nice. The hotel is well maintained It is so easy to get to LeEnfant metro station and you are a block to the museums.

The hotel was very clean and convenient to all the attractions in the city. Room was a little noisy since the rail tracks are directly behind but never heard it once we fell asleep. The restaurant in the hotel was good as well.

Went for spring break in March 2015 with my husband and the kids. Hotel is close to several museums, the train, the Mall, etc. The hotel is clean and kept up. On-site parking garage and parking fees are validated by the hotel. Both restaurants had very good food, although were a little pricey. McDonald's and CVS were on the same... More

I like walking in D.C. This hotel is very close to the National Mall with all the museums and sites. The room was newish and well kept. The hotel staff were eager to please. It is one of the nicer Holiday Inns I've stayed in and will soon have a new pool (construction happening now.)

I hadn't stayed at a Holiday Inn in awhile. Honestly, they hadn't been that great as far as the room or service goes. This location was a pleasant surprise. I ended up here because I was attending an Old School party. The doorman that welcomed me like a sister and will always be appreciated for the assistance he gave me... More

My husband and I had to travel to DC quite suddenly and needed a hotel in the city. I read the AAA books while he drove and we decided on the Holiday InnWashington-Capitol.

4 stars for value, great central location, friendly staff, and cleanliness. Great location to all museums, Capitol Hill, a mile away from other national sites and restaurants. Super value thanks to Hotwire deal! $74+ fees and taxes coming to about $90+ per night beating other nearby hotels. Modern and very spacious rooms. Huge bathrooms and readily available toiletries. Firm bed... More

One block from the National Mall. Less than a 5 minute walk to the Air and Space Museum, Metro is 1 block away, hard to get any closer. Staff was great, rooms are clean and well appointed. Since we only used the room to crash in after a long day of Landmark hopping we did not need a lot of... More

This hotel looked like a great place for a family resting spot - close to the National Mall, Metro Station, 2 restaurants on property, dependable Holiday Inn brand. But it was a letdown. The one bright spot was the staff. They were friendly throughout the hotel, dining, housekeeping, front desk. Some specific issues: * internet in room kept dropping *... More

The hotel itself is in good condition. When we first walked into the room it smelt a little musty, but other than that, no complaints. Everyone was courteous and any time we called downstairs, we got an immediate response. The hotel is very centrally located. Directly across from the National Mall and Metro Rail. The only downside is the lack... More
