Having stayed at the Holiday Inn several times over the past few years, I opted to return on a recent business trip. This trip I found that the hotel staff continue to be enthusiastic and helpful, although the hotel no longer maintains toiletries for those who have forgotten some item. I was assigned a room with double beds on a lower floor, which often can be noisier than those at higher floors. The room was quiet, but the room furnishings were somewhat tired. The bedding had seen better days, with very soft and "pliable" mattresses, and thin duvees. The heating unit only seemed to work when the temperature was manually adjusted upwards, by only a single degree. The decorations are now a bit dated, with a more spartan bathroom setup. The hotel offers the traveler the option of reusing the towels to save water usage. But, even when towels are hung up as requested to indicate their continued use, the cleaning staff changes them out, anyway. The quality of accommodation for the price is probably average for this part of the DC area. But, much better rooms for the price can be found almost anywhere except, maybe, New York and other major cities.
