This hotel is what one expects from Holiday Inn. It is clean, well maintained, with a friendly, helpful staff. The restaurant, on the top floor, has a panoramic view of the city. (To add a little nostalgia, I was able to look across the Potomac at my alma mater, Georgetown University.) The food was tasty, but unremarkable. Again, it is the sort of fare one expects from a hotel like this.
One of the great advantages to staying in Rosslyn is proximity to the Metro. This hotel is about a block and a half from the Rosslyn Metro station which serves the Blue and Orange lines. http://www.wmata.com/index.cfm There are also several bus lines, including the "D.C. Circulator" http://www.dccirculator.com/ that stop nearby. Since Washington--and Virginia--traffic is a nightmare, with expensive parking, it is probably a good idea to get familiar with the public transportation options that are available. In addition, if you plan to make more than five trips on the Metro, it is a good idea to spring for the "Smart-Trip" card. The Metro charges an extra dollar to use the old paper farecards. Finally, it should be remembered that most hotels in the Washington area, including this one, will charge you for the privilege of parking your car overnight. So, in my humble opinion, public transportation is the best way to see the sights in Washington. The Holiday Inn in Rosslyn is a good place to use as your jumping off point.
