The manager here is very good. We enjoyed the location and amenities. No microwave in the room and we had planned to prepare our own breakfast there, so that was a bit of a snag. We could have "rented" a microwave for the room @ $25 per day, but why when you could eat breakfast out for less than that?... More

Nothing outside of the ordinary, except the front desk staff working the late day shift are very professional and attentive. Close to Ballston metro station, within walking distance of several eateries and shops. In room fridge and coffee/tea service, safe, resaurant and lobby lounge. Typical noisy door slams. Located along noisy street so you do get much car traffic sounds.

I like almost everything about this hotel after staying in it for three nights with my wife, but there is one exception that keeps me from awarding it a 5. The location right near the Ballston metro station is very good, and it is also right near firms and agencies of various sorts as well as restaurants and shops. The... More

This place had a great location for my friends and I. We stayed here in June during the World Cup and there were a ton of bars near by to go enjoy a game at. The metro is also close by which is perfect. Our room was very spacious as well and clean. We arrived very early around 11am. I... More

Although the rooms are large, the beds need new clothes. The mattress pad was so old, thin and loose, it kept bunching up under the sheet. Yuck! Also, there is no in room microwave. There is a fridge but it does not have a freezer unit. This Holiday Inn does not have a complimentary breakfast. It cost $14/night to park.... More

The room was clean and comfy , could not beat the proximity to the metro station and airport. Restaurant on-site hours are not helpful to people who are gone from hotel all day, but great to have close if you are there during hours of operation. Stocked Snack and food area with quick fixes, but prepare to pay the cost..... More

Most travelers don't like to eat at the hotel restaurant. I do. The restaurant at this hotel is class A good. Their chef is worth every penny they pay him. The entrees are better than the appetizers but they are so good. So, stay cozy and enjoy. And to top it off. The staff remembers me everytime I visit. From... More

Travel for work so single female travel. Hotel is OK safety-wise and close enough to metro stop to walk. Room is tired. Lots of traffic noise. Shuttle not working. Usual DC rude staff except at the bar. And TV does not work & won't fix it. Bed is comfy though

This is a very nice HI Express. I stayed with IHG points. Rooms clean and modern as you would expect. Lots of parking. Lots of food within walking distance. Only gripe is no free breakfast. It's hard to say much more about the hotel but we need more characters. So. Very friend staff. Down south hospitality.
