small bathroom I liked that it wasn't super far from everything. We could walk a few blocks or we could Uber and the Uber wasn't super expensive (under $10). I liked that it has a secure parking lot so random people off the street could not enter it. I liked the security for the elevators - they were the same way. You had to use your hotel card to get in the elevators and also the bathrooms on the first floor. The bed in our hotel room was comfortable. The hotel was quiet. We didn't hear traffic or outside noises. It was great for sleeping. Our view wasn't too bad. I loved that the room had plenty of storage space to keep luggage out of the walkway. I liked the sofa that pulled out into an extra bed. It was comfortable. I liked that the room had a microwave, extra sink, and mini-fridge. I liked that it had an extra blanket and pillow as well. The hotel staff was very friendly too. There is a 7 Eleven and Whole Foods not far from the hotel which are great options for snacks, etc. It seemed pretty safe in our hotel and surrounding area. Our stay preferences we had picked out on the app were granted. Also, since we were a gold member we got the option of two amenities (drink or points) which was nice. what do you think would make your stay better? I would have liked for the bathrooms to be bigger. The couch wasn't super comfortable to sit on nor was the chair (non office one). There was an extra blanket in the room but I would have liked to have a thicker blanket already on the bed. The sheet and comforter were super thin. The price to park the car each day was $47 dollars which is pricey to me compared to paying $0 in 95% of other places we visit. We would have liked to have had a free breakfast as we have had in other Holiday Inn's. Parking spots are definitely small.

The fridge didn't work and you had to pay for parking other than that it was a pretty good stay. They was quick when I asked for more washcloths. They even had travel toothbrushes and toothpaste free of charge.

Dear Tamiratee, Your feedback is much appreciated! We're so happy our team was quick to serve your needs and provide the essentials that you needed. Our apologies, however, that your fridge wasn't working properly. Maintenance is following up now. Also, parking does come at quite a premium in the area, and we like to make sure that our guests do have a guaranteed place for parking if they need it. Thank you for being a guest of ours, and we wish you safe and happy travels ahead!

I live near this hotel. My immediate and extended family stay here often. This Holiday Inn is immaculately maintained: *hotel rooms are fully renovated and refreshed on a regular basis; and *hotel staff are professional and resourceful. Weekend rates - excellent value! Weekday rates are higher given the location and demand.

I had to make a quick Business trip to D.C. The hotels by the convention center were booked and super expensive. This hotel was a quick walk and was great. The front staff is excellent. Nice hotel, conveniently located. Nice rooms. I would recommend for pleasure also. Great location, hotel staff and hotel. I watched the front desk staff use cell phone translator apps to help non-english speaking guests. They went out of their way to help.
