So I had a trip here last March. I was instructed by work to be here while my office was being renovated. There were some additional business meetings to take care of in DC, and this location is 'supposed' to be close to the historic district.
1) It's over a mile - I believe 2 miles - from the historic district. With no shuttle, that's not close. There is a metro within walking distance, but that's not disclosed by Holiday Inn. That's not nearly accurate enough.
2) No internet. By that I mean...they 'offered' internet, but it never worked. The entire time I was there. No explanation as to why it didn't work, and no apologies. They have have signal blockers in the hotel, so I had to leave the hotel and walk another half block if I wanted to use my personal phone. NO THANK YOU!
3) I lost a piece of personal property. I know it was in the room, and it's pretty unique, having been made by myself. It was a self-colored Nalgene water bottle.
It took an hour to describe to the staff that it was a 'Nalgene' (who doesn't know what that is?).
It has since been replaced, but it wasn't the one that was mine.
