“Washington, DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We picked this Holiday Inn Express because of a previous trip to Massachusetts where we were pleasantly surprised by a Holiday Inn Express in South Lawrence. The Fort Belvoir location turned out to be excellent due to proximity to Reagan Airport and a Metro station. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable, breakfast was good, plentiful and fully restocked as soon as consumed, very clean also. The shuttle was always ready to go and Fred the day driver was cheerful and pleasant every day, the night drivers were also excellent. The room was large, neat and clean with a big flat screen HD TV and wireless internet. The Metro is an easy way to get around, clean, safe and efficient.

We searched high and low for a hotel to stay at for our recent trip to Washington, DC, that would not "kill" our $$$$. After using all of the quick sites for cheap hotels and such, we called directly and the customer service rep that my wife spoke with was phenominal. Once we got to the hotel from the airport, Reagan National via the metro, we knew we had the right hotel. Very close to the metro. Very courteous and friendly staff. Clean rooms and comfortable rooms.

My family stayed here while visiting DC. Loved the shuttle to the metro and were quickly there when we returned at the end of the day. The hotel is a great price and clean. This location is also close to stores and restaurants. Loved the helpful staff.
I only had a couple negatives. Our room faced the street and the road traffic was loud. I'm a lite sleeper! Also our room was right above the front door so not only did we here people arriving late but if someone went out for a smoke break we could hear them talking or laughing. Just a thought to the staff to find a new location for the astray!
Overall we loved our stay and would stay again!

Room Tip: If you are a lite sleeper ask for a room not facing the road and not above the entrance!

This was an excellent hotel -- fair price, clean, free breakfast, extremely friendly staff (especially Phill at the front desk). We chose this hotel based upon its proximity to the Huntington Metro (free shuttle from the hotel), which made quick trips in and out of Washington easy. Plus the hotel is surrounded by lots of restaurants, so finding a place to eat for dinner is easy. The five of us had a great stay, and we'll definitely stay here again!

I stayed here for four nights whilst visiting DC and found the hotel to be very clean, quiet and above all, some of the most helpful and friendly staff I have ever encountered in most American hotels, including the major brands in New York costing over ten times the nightly rate of this hotel.
One of the people I was travelling with asked the lady running the breakfast if they had an gluten free bread and she spoke to the management of the hotel and by the next morning there was bread and cereal, which was a lovely thing to see. (in our previous New York hotel, we just got grunted at).

Alexandria is a lovely town to get dinner in and wander around the shops.

Room Tip: Go to Alexandria for dinner. Lovely place.

Cant say enough about what a positive stay this was for my family and I .We were in town to see the Capitol for 4 days and this hotel and it's excellent staff deserve your business . To list what I was pleased with would take too long so let me just say that we would def book here again and recommend it to friends.Special mention to Phil at the front desk who,without his infinite patience and professionalism ,I'm afraid I would have been sunk. Fred, the shuttle driver was another high mark for our stay, super friendly and very competent ...wish I could get him to drive me full time.:)
Amanda and the holiday inn should be proud of the service they provide. For the price and the convenience , and last but not least...for an enjoyable trip...I would highly recommend this hotel

Had an excellent experience staying here. The room was clean and comfortable, as I expected it would be, but I have to say the highlight was the courteous employees. I believe Judy was the name of the woman who served our breakfast--a total gem. And the shuttle was a wonderful convenience. I'd definitely stay here again.
