“Nice, Quiet and Clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

Stayed 3 nights nd found ths property to be very nice, check-in to checkout. Rate included a full buffet breakfast. Located in a quaint and quiet area so if you're looking for 24/7 excitement this is NOTthe place for you. Property in what felt to bek a safe area, even for female business travelers traveling alone. Easily within walking distance from King Street District.

Room Tip: Rooms in vicinity of conference area very quiet.

Stayed here one night in Oct. Can't think of anything to say really. It was fairly clean, easy to park, restaurant was closed. No ambiance whatsoever...

Do not eat at the Royal Restaurant nearby as the staff suggests - it sucks! Best place around was TJ Stones which is one block away.

Booked this hotel for a weekend (Oct 21-Oct 23). Was looking for a cheap hotel that was nearby DC and came across this one. Was running late for check-in, but called and was told that it would be fine. The beds were nicely made up (loved the pillow choices) and the furniture was clean. The flat screen tv was a plus. There was a wedding going on at the hotel but it did not interfere with my stay. I booked a double room on the 2nd floor. The carpet had a small stain and the paint inside the bath tub was chipped but it didn't upset me. The hotel website said that parking was $20/night but was only charged $10/night (possible AAA discount). There is a Giants across the street and many restaurants and stores nearby on Richmond Highway. The drive to DC is 15-20 minutes. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: close to DC grocery store across the street

Nice rooms clean pizza in small retaurant terrible. If you drive a pickup truck you wont be able to park in inside garage. Even outside is difficult, spacing small. I hate hotels that charge you to park your car($20 a night).

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites in the Historic District this weekend. Our room was immaculate upon arrival and we slept well (no noise whatsoever). We enjoyed two nice meals in the Bistro on First including breakfast and dinner. Our server, Lahbib, served us for both of our meals and he was exceptionally professional and attentive. Kim at the front desk was friendly and accommodating. Overall, a great stay.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn for a recent conference and found the rooms nicely decorated, clean, and most importantly, quiet. The staff was helpful, the tv selections adequate, and the workout room nicely available.

The downside of this hotel is that it isn't near a metro and you are at the mercy of the shuttles to get anywhere. I waited a half hour for the shuttle at the airport and then was nearly denied a ride when a flight crew showed up and was accomodated first (very irritating). There was also a shuttle to King's Street, but nothing that could get you to the major DC attractions. In the end, I found myself taking a taxi a few times just to easily get where I needed to go for business.

The bed is comfortable but the mini-pillows are annoying. They are marked soft and firm, but I really couldn't tell a difference between them and they were all uncomfortable. I was also disappointed to find shampoo, but no conditioner. One day my ice bucket was not changed, although a new plastic sleeve was laying on top.

Overall the hotel is fine, but I wouldn't expect DC luxury.

Room Tip: A third floor room overlooking the courtyard was nice and quiet.

We stayed this past summer to see the local attractions in DC, but found we loved Alexandria! This hotel was located not so far away from King Street where it seems that most of the tourist action happens in Alexandria. The hotel staff was very helpful about getting around the area and making suggestions for dinner reservations. The rooms and hallways were always kept clean and the breakfast was a fantastic value. We will definitely be back!
