“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

This property was in a great location. It's a block and a half from the Rosslyn train station. It's one station or 2 minutes from Arlington Cemetery. It's also only two stations away from the White House and the Mall. Parking is free at this Holiday Inn. We had a regular Twin Double and they upgraded us to a suite, which was nice. The Property is in the process of upgrading and remodeling. The Front desk folks were really nice especially Ada(I think that's her name). The room service was fast and efficient. The food was very good. We would stay here again if we visited Washington.

Arrived 9/12/13 and left 9/15/13. Families in NC and OH met to tour DC. All the people we dealt with at the front desk were very professional and well spoken. Same is true of the staff at the Vantage Point restaurant located on the 17th floor of the hotel. There is no charge to park your car. A short 1 1/2 blocks from the Rosslyn Metro stop. Had adjoining rooms and the staff was prompt in supplying a cot and a mini fridge. Our room was cleaned daily and we had fresh towels. There was a pool and fitness room that the kids used at night to relax in. You can walk across the Key Bridge and stroll down the streets in Georgetown which exactly what we did. The walk was only about 10 minutes. This hotel had it all for our 2 families: adjoining rooms, professional staffing, restaurant on location, close to public transportation. If we do DC again we would definately stay at this location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking out over the Potomac River and Georgetown. We stayed on the 5th floor and ha...

Titile says it all

Short complaint - Greeting from Syed the front desk help was atrocious. Too many of "yeah man and no man". It's as if he hates his job and want you to know it. Just so he knows, I do know it and you should not be doing this type of work. Hence the 3 stars...Enough complaining :-)

Location loction location, you are 2 blocks from the metro and a couple of eateries. The hotel is situated at the foot hill of the bridge so you are at the perfect location to DC without paying the DC price. The surrounding area is safe for a late night stroll with your significant others or early morning walk to enjoy the view from the bridge. The surrounding areas businesses do close down at 10:00 pm so looking for late evening coffee is defnitely out with having to drive. However, McDonald is a few blocks and StarBuck is within walking distant for those who MUST have it. The hotel it self "DO NOT" offer free continental breakfast but they do offer breakfast bar for a fee. The Asian lady working behind the breakfast counter was SUPER friendly, we loved her because she went out of her way to give great advice while making terrific Chai Latte'.

Overall - Decent size room, clean, safe and reasonable price with free parking ***big plus***

The big question: would I stay here again? Yes I would, but if I have to check in with Syed, I would rather wait for the next available service person.

Room Tip: ask for room facing the river, it's gorgeous in the morning.

This is an older 70's building, the wall thermostat and shower fittings are original and give the game away.! However rooms are freshly updated with new carpets and large flat panel TVs etc and are a pleasant place to stay.

Staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel benefits from free wifi and free breakfast for priority club members (though I was too early one morning and too late the next morning, so never actually got to try it..! ) However the big plus is the free parking and a short stroll to the Metro and then 2 stops to the White House etc.

The restaurant at Level 17 has a nice view across the Potomac to Georgetown but the room/ service/ food are all rather uninspiring. So in summary i would be happy to stay at this hotel again but probably wouldnt eat in the restaurant

Room Tip: I was in Room 1219 and it was right across from the ice maker and vending machines which were pretty...

I am coming to the end of a weeks stay. For just over $200 a night I would pay the extra and go to the Hyatt down the road.

I thought I would order room service as a treat for my last morning and when phoning to reception was told I couldn't. Just a No, when it clearly states room service starts from 6am. The person then put the phone down on me, that too me was the straw that broke the camels back, after a tiny bathroom with a shower/bath that you have to fight with every morning to convince the water to come out of the shower, a gym with no bicycle and no tea or coffee in your room I would stay else where.

I will say that the room was adequately cleaned and comfortable it is just the facilities that leave a lot to be desired and it could do with an upgrade.

Room Tip: There is a busy road underneath you if you face the bridge.

Being one of the cheaper options in the DC area, as well as offering FREE PARKING (quite a rarity), the Holiday Inn Keystone was a better deal than I bargained for. Located directly over the Key Bridge, the hotel is a short stroll away from Georgetown where you can find many shops and restaurants (including the famous Georgetown Cupcake), as well as close to several restaurants and stores in Rosslyn itself. The lobby of the hotel leaves quite the impression with the marble floors, spacious sitting area, and flat-screen TVs. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms very clean, modern, and spacious. Each room has a flat-screen TV, a refrigerator, a coffeemaker, and a terrace (or two! - & ours happened to have a great view of the Potomac River and Georgetown). Our room was adjacent to the elevator shaft - which made me apprehensive - but I heard not a peep from it my entire stay. The bathrooms were a bit small, the pool left a lot to be desired, and we had problems with our room card every night (which required a simple trip to the front desk - where they asked for no proof that we were in fact the occupants of that room, which was a little unnerving). There is a restaurant on the top floor of the hotel that offers a satisfying (and cheap) buffet breakfast while supplied diners with a magnificent view of DC/Arlington. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to DC on a budget. We had a very pleasant stay!

We stayed here to break up our trip and to see a Nats game. The rooms we had were clean and well maintained. We had the free breakfast each morning which was pretty bland but the view was great. The Metro is close but the area doesn't have much to offer for drinking or dining. Kudos to the staff for setting up a banquet room for food and drink when the restaurant was being used for an event. Nationals Park is a great ball park and was a $20 cab ride.
