I love this hotel. My second stay, the first being in February, 2010. Being from Barbados, the Hotel has the hospitality like us from The Caribbean. Big respect to Janet Mohamed Manny They all went above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable. The Guys in the Breakfast room and the cleaners were all very pleasant and helpful. They were... More

I travel to a lot of hotels and this one is fine. The bed is clean and comfortable. The location is close to the Ballston metro (about 4 blocks). The room is quiet even though it is on a busy street. The room is generally clean but would be fabulous if housekeeping paid attention to details. It looks like the... More

This is a full service hotel in a fine location. Ballston is the edge of urban Arlington. You can get a way with leaving your car at the hotel and walking most places from the hotel. Any father out (ie. Falls Church or Tysons ) and transport will be an issue. This hotel has a shuttle that will take you... More

The last time I stayed in a Holiday Inn was over 20 years ago. The nicest thing I can say is that at that time, the rooms were, well, OK for the price. I wasn't aware that Holiday Inn had upgraded the quality of everything in the meantime; however, I was pleasantly suprised during a recent stay at the HI... More

Wanted to thank Karl Torres, the night manager, for the excellent way he resolved an issue with my reservation. Excellent customer service!

I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Washington DC area. The entire hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, especially Janet and Cherelle. The hotel is very clean and quiet. Since finding this hotel, I have made it a point to not look any further for a place to stay.

The hotel is very well located in order to visit the capital with all the surrounding areas and attractions. I was traveling with a tour group from Germany and my clients enjoyed the warm hospitality given to them - excellent service and very friendly staff: Cherell, Aye, Jay, Manuel, and all the others I don't know the names. An added... More

I was the tour escort with 53 people & the staff at this hotel went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. Our rooms were ready when we arrived. The rooms are very comfortable & clean. Part of our package was a breakfast buffet all 3 mornings & that was done very well & their was a good... More

I commend the Holiday Inn Ballston for the hiring and the retention of your front desk personnel: Jacob and Sade. Both of these employees made me and my husband feel very welcome and went out of their way to make our stay in Washington very pleasant. Their friendly attitude and their help with the shuttle and making sure we were... More

I know places in Washington are expensive, but why would anyone pay $250 a night for this place? Normal rooms, normal bar and restaurant, and convenient to the highway. The service was actually pretty good, but there's nothing special to recommend this hotel.
