Typical Holiday Inn property with clean, comfortable rooms and public spaces. Very close and convenient to DCA with regular shuttle service to the airport. The neighborhood, on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired and I did not feel safe outside the property at night.

Booked direct through Holiday Inn website as I have done numerous times in various cities. Room rate included breakfast for 2. Found the hotel to be tired and in need of refurbishment.
