I visited the hotel bar for a beer before the NHL game. The bartender Ron Clark was really friendly and he gave good advise for places to visit in DC. One of my best experiences in a hotel bar. Keep up the good work Ron!

Great location in DC for sightseeing, and a few minutes walk from the White House and Farragut North metro. The hotel itself is traditional style, comfy and American. Service impeccable on front desk, breakfast and all areas. A shout out to Mr Lam the handyman who really helpfully came up to the laundry room at 11pm to refill the washing...

Great food, coffee, and bed!! Perfect! Recommend it! Excellent bathrooms and housecleaning! Hot water, tv, and 2 sinks, for two people! The suit room, I haven't seen it, but I can tell it is even better! The hotel is very close to amazing restaurants and renting bikes! I really recommend it! Eddie is a great host!

My fiancé and I stayed here in November while doing some sightseeing, and we couldn't have had a better stay. Right when we walked in the door, we were given a greeting from the doorman, then the receptionist, who were both incredibly friendly. We lucked out and got an upgrade to an enormous corner suite- it had two bathrooms! This...

I don't typical post reviews but, the rooms and rate are good but the drinks and food, RON is the best! Ask for him at the bar. Ron will take you mind off of the long day and treat you like a friend you haven't seen in a while, GREAT times will be had.

I'm thankful to Maribel of the housekeeping staff, who went above and beyond, as well as the first-rate front desk staff, who are so conscientious. I really loved the newly renovated room, which is a big improvement over the old style. I was upgraded because of my Spire status and absolutely loved the larger room and it's layout. I haven't...

I've stayed there back in April 2016 on business. Everything was pretty good except mattress, I have great tolerance to variety of mattress firmness, but I could not tolerate there. I was told they've got brand new ones, but anyway they lost me as a customer. Sleeping there was a nightmare.

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of our 10 day stay at this Holiday Inn. The hotel has a great location near central Washington. It also has a decent restaurant and bar; both were surprisingly popular during our stay. This is definately not a romantic getaway hotel, but is very business traveler friendly. We did find the service to...

The hotel restaurant had excellent food and service for a reasonable price. The waiter, Abbas, was friendly and helpful. Thanks. If we are ever in DC again, we will stay here. Again, thanks. And thanks again. There is my 200 word minimum (good grief).
