“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

This was the perfect place for my sister and I. Front desk, housekeeping, and restaurant staff were all friendly and helpful. The room was clean, beds and pillows very comfortable, extra sink outside the bathroom a nice touch, and view from the balcony was of the Key Bridge. The free parling was a plus and we did not have to wait long for any of the elevators. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet every morning and a dinner one night in the restaurant. Terrific view!
Become a club member and your breakfast buffet is free and your guest's breakfast buffet is half off. My sister and I could walk to the Marine Memorial, Arlington Cemetary. Theodore Roosevelt Island, and over the Key Bridge to Georgetown. If walking is not your thing there is a Metro stop, city bus stop, and Circulator bus stop within a block or two of the hotel. There are resaurants, drug stores, and a grocery store all within about a three or four block area of the hotel The only small negatives for me were not enough drawer space and it was a bit tricky adjusting the thermostat to the correct temperature. I definetly recommend this hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

I was on biz trip with two collegues. The rooms were booked over the internet, in advance, through a well known booking service. We have arrived at the hotel at about 9.30 pm due to a late flight and it took us about half an hour to check in, plus some mishaps in teh handling of the bills. Saved for this the rest of the stay went basically uneventful. the rooms on top floors have a beautiful view of the city and the top floor restaurant offers a sttunnig view. The breakfast was offered through a deal cut by the hotel manager; it is good quality and in decent quantity and variety. The rooms are fairly standard for this type of hotels. The pool is rather small with opening hours not very suitable for people on biz trips. The gym is well kept and organised. The position is ideal to reach Georgetown and teh metro is nearby. Free parking if you are staying at the hotel. If in area we will look for rooms there but only at lower rates.

This review represents a return visit to a hotel that received decidedly low marks last year.
Our experience this time was that the room seemed refreshed and pleasant. The doors appeared to have been painted or restained and show little of the previous damaged appearance. Nice flat screen TV in the room, but unfortunately no high definition channels.
(They were promised by someone at the front desk for the future.) All in all, I am pleased to
recommend this hotel with the stipulation that they keep on top of problems before they develop
into eyesores.

Room Tip: Away from the elevator--otherwise be prepared for a noicy ring every time it stops at your floor.

We often stay at this hotel when we visit our daughter. The rooms are clean, spacious and well maintained. The only drawbacks are the slow elevators (makes it challenging to go to the coffee shop, restaurant or garage) and the occasional noisy hallways. It seems like every time we visit there's a tour that generates a lot of noise. The staff are always very nice and extremely helpful. Also, the free inside parking, proximity to Georgetown and the metro are real benefits. We will continue to make this our "home hotel" when visiting the capital.

From pre-arrival discussions, front desk reception, the hotel rooms, bar,and restaurant this hotel was great. Great location as well and free parking. The location made for easy access into DC or other sights. The restaurant is on the 17th floor with striking views of Georgetown and the surrounding area. The service and food - excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north face Georgetown :)

My family stayed at this hotel in April 2013. It is pretty close to Rosslyn station on the Metro which got us to all the sights in Washington DC within 15 minutes.

The front desk staff were all so friendly. So were the guys in the restaurant every morning for breakfast. Be sure to sign up for the Holiday Inn frequent guest program so you can get one free breakfast each morning.

Beds were comfortable, but were "full" size... not queen size.
Rooms were quiet and the view across the Potomac was nice.

Book this hotel if you want good value for money, and decent proximity to the Washington DC attractions.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. I marked this hotel as 4-stars because it really doesn't have all the amenities you find in a 5-star property... but keep in mind that I wasn't paying 5-star prices either. Hotels in DC can easily get to $500.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was clean and pretty large (we had the king room). The extra sink outside the bathroom was a great feature. We also made use of the mini-fridge so we could have breakfast in the room each morning instead of paying for their breakfast. I'd list not having free breakfast as a drawback, but they did have free parking, so I think we can out about even there since there are few hotels in the DC area that offer free parking. The only major complaint we had was that our key cards stopped working four times during our four-night stay. First, we were told that they might have demagnetized due to something in our wallets. Then we were told they didn't know what was causing it. Finally, they told us that if you ride the Metrorail, it will demagnetize the key cards. If that's the case, then all hotels in this area should be having the same problem since almost everyone who stays in this area will take the Metro at some point, causing everyone's hotel keys to demagnetize. But, we pretty much proved this wasn't true since on the last day my husband went out, rode the Metro to Metro Center and back and his key worked just fine when he returned. Who knows? But, all in all, we were very impressed with the hotel and the location (so close to Rosslyn station) can't be beat!
