Very nice from check in to check out. When arrived late and when we got to the room our toilet wasnt flushing correctly and they sent someone up within 10 min! The hotel bar - 21st amendment - has great good, relaxing atmosphere and TV's w sports playing at the bar, but tables for more intimate eating too. Rooms are... More

We chose this Holiday Inn for its location. We could to the Mall. Our granddaughters and kids loved the pool. We ate twice one the restaurant. All excellent. We were on a family get-together. Great for families and children!

We had an awesome stay at the Holiday Inn Capitol - Washington DC. The hotel staff was amazing from our early check in to our extended departure time. They were friendly and customer service was first rate. We arrived on my granddaughter's birthday and the front desk sent a special gift package up to our room for her. The room... More

Big, clean rooms with very comfortable beds. Great location, walking distance to the national mall and most attractions. There are a couple of restaurants (including a buffet) in the hotel, an a small food market place next to the lobby which was very handy. Starbucks is next to the hotel too. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This hotel is a 2 min walk to the Air and Space Museum. We couldn't of ask for closer. The recent renovations to the hotel are great. A modern look with every convenience needed. Remember to ask for the discount coupon for the breakfast buffet. Having Starbucks beside the hotel is a bonus. Parking is a little pricey, $37. If... More

Nice clean room, free wifi, and only 3 blocks from the National Mall. Train station is only 2 blocks away. Very friendly staff and they held our bags all day even after we had checked out. I would certainly stay here again,

Within easy walking to the Mall, Metro and Capitol. You will have to travel to get to a decent restauraunt. Nice older hotel, in very good condition, well maintained rooms, recently updated. Nice to see Holiday Inn has gotten serious about maintaining their hotels again. Avoid the bistro, $60+ for breakfast for 3 is insane!!!

Nice hotel good rates, close to all the tour buses and walking distance to museums. Only negative unless you eat in the hotel, you will need to cab it if you wish to find other fine dining. The hotel is surrounded by federal buildings.

Can't find any real faults at all. The room was a decent size, King Sized bed was comfortable. The Chaise Lounge type sofa was ok for our daughter, however if your child is much taller than 120cm (4 feet) then you'll be better off getting a room with two beds. The breakfast buffet provided plenty of options. Great place to... More
