“Great for Families. Maybe not for some Business Travelers.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I've stayed here frequently, most recently in October 2012.

Likes:
--------
-- Short walk to: Willard's BBQ (yum!), Walmart, Hooter's, almost any fast food you can name.
-- Outdoor pool with large patio area (in summer).
-- Rooms are clean and fresh.
-- All rooms have a refrigerator.
-- Heat/AC are from an internal system, similar to what you'd find in a small apartment. This is quieter than the typical "thru-the-wall" heat/AC that most hotels have.
-- Bathrooms have a large doorless shower-nook instead of a usual bathtub and shower curtain.
-- 24-hour shuttle to IAD. (Some other area hotel's don't offer shuttle between midnight and 5:00AM.)
-- If you are a Holiday Inn Priority Club member, you'll get one $7.00 coupon per room, per night for the hotel's restaurant (Bob O's). The coupon covers most/all the cost of a light breakfast.

Dislikes:
----------
-- Internet. More often than not, the hotel's internet connection totally unusable. Too slow, even for low-bandwidth tasks like reading email or news. For a business traveler, the hotel's internet is unacceptable. This is why I've stopped staying here.
-- Desk chairs. Most hotels have comfortable Aeron-like desk chairs. This hotel has old-style vinyl covered upholstered chairs that are (for me) uncomfortable.
-- Exercise room is barely adequate.
-- Breakfast has limited selection of healthy items.

Other
---------
-- The attached restaurant (Bob O's) is more of a bar than a restaurant. But, as said above, you can walk to other places. Some may prefer this; some may not.

What a great staff! I was attending work related training in the area from 14-19 October 2012 and tried to book this hotel, which was within walking distance to my training site and it was full. I called the hotel and ended up speaking with the Director of sales and marketing and she took the time to figure a way for me to stay there and also another coworker, saving us a big hassle dealing with traffic. The facility was centrally located to restaurants, shopping and anything else that you could think of. The rooms were great and the staff was always friendly and greeted you with a smile at every chance. I will stay here again, thank you Holiday Inn Chantilly Staff.

My company uses this hotel for accommodating us employees. I am not a regular fan of the Holiday Inn chain. This hotel pleasantly surprised me. It was very clean. Very clean. At the risk of sounding like a neurotic clean freak (I don't believe that I am, I just stay in so many hotels...) I take a sanitary wipe and clean the bathroom light switch, counter, toilet seat, remote, and telephone before I settle in. Usually the wipes are disturbingly dirty. Not in this room. No hair on the bathroom floor. Really clean. And, the room was surprisingly nice. It was large and had a bathroom that you could share if you were not traveling alone. A separate toilet room. The bed was comfortable, the pillows were not. The staff was professional and friendly. I checked average for value...no idea of the cost of the room; work paid.

My husband and I stay here a lot for business. The staff is very friendly and conscientious. Breakfast is very good (Charles, one of the wait-staff in the a.m. is especially nice). We don't eat dinner there, as one of our favorite Indian restaurants is nearby. The spacious rooms are always clean, and each has a little refrigerator, and an in-room safe. The outdoor pool is a nice retreat on a hot summer day. This hotel is close to restaurants, tourist sites, and the Vienna metro stop. Highly recommend.

Nice location and at a good price. Quite even though there are lots of people coming and going to the airport. Rooms are modernized, great bedding package, pillow slection and large bathroom. Stayed here 3 nights with lots to do in the area. No breakfast, as in an Express Inn. Lots of parking and security in the hotel area.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear to be moderized up to Holiday Inn standards and to all guest standards

The hotel is close to Dulles airport and also close to thr Smithsonian aviation Museum. You can't ask for a better place to stay and have someplace to visit if you are in between flights. The hotel is a modern quality hotel better than the norm for Holiday Inn (although no breakfast like their Express partners). I liked the bed and choice of pillows. The only detractor was the room took a little while to cool after I got there. The room was very comfortable and the price was most excellent.
You can't do much better and get this nice of a place to stay. If you have to wait a day for a flight this is THE place to do so and visit the Museum.
There are a couple of fast food places right next door to the hotel if you don't want to pay hotel prices. I highly recommend this place for the convenience, price and quality.

If you like this make sure you check the helpful block.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed to be nicely located. As always stay away from the icemachines...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Chantilly, VA. I had a great experience, much better than the last experience that I had at a different Holiday Inn which I wrote a review on. The look of the hotel inside and out was modern and the area itself felt safe. I walked out by myself during the evening to get something to eat. Fast food chains right across the street! Burger King, Taco Bell, Mc Donald's. Chick-fil-a, Hooters...and of course the hotel has it's own room service.

The floor I was on was clean and quiet! My room was very comfortable! It was a cute little room :) Mine came with a mini fridge too. The toilet had it's own little space with a door. Then there was the sink and shower area. My shower did not have a shower curtain, I think it was meant to be that way...I'm not sure. Cool concept though. The bed was super-duper comfy for me. The sheets were soft, they had two types of pillows on the bed (firm and soft) and the mattress was great. It felt like it had some sort of memory foam or gel technology. Again, clean, quiet, no riff-raff,and comfortable.

I didn't get a chance to stay at this hotel for long, but I would love to come back again to appreciate the room little longer. Keep up the good work !
