Was there on business trip and was looking forward to the pool on the roof top for doing sports. When I saw it I turned around immediately, small and crowded by families. After that I did not even try the gym. If you want to do sports you have to run, the earlier in the morning, the better. Adding to... More

Our four-night stay was a delight. The rooms are large and airy, the king bed plush and oh so comfortable. Breakfast buffet provided a great start to the day and, as mentioned before, the hotel location is very convenient for both sites and shopping. The 9th floor pool great for a refreshing dip. Frankly, you can’t go wrong staying at... More

We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. It is within walking distance to various restaurants, grocery stores, and pharmacies. It isn't very close to any bus stops or the metro but you are able to walk there (About a half mile or so away). The check in staff were all friendly and courteous; Paula was especially helpful and... More

Had a great few nights in this great hotel. Central to all the major sights and museums, friendly staff, clean beds, affordably priced services and just a fabulous place to base yourself in whilst visiting the city for a short stay... Ray (customer services) was a star helping us get from Dulles very late at night, the reception was fabulous,... More

As usual I stayed at this Holiday Inn on Rhode Island Ave. It is my go-to hotel in DC. On this stay the service exceeded any of the usual good service I have received in the past. Let me be specific. At the front desk both Justen and Rebecca went out of their way, well beyond my expectation to be... More

I work in DC most weeks so I have stayed at this hotel many times. Good location in DC and affordable rates. They recently renovated the guest rooms which look great now. They desperately need to renovate the Lobby and the restaurant. The sofas in the lobby are very dated and out of place as far as decor and style... More

The Holiday Inn Washington DC Central is always my choice when I am in DC for business. The location is great for getting around. My reason for coming back here, time after time is the staff.
