This hotel is very convenient to the national mall and all it has to offer. The beds were not the most comfortable that I've had at a Holiday Inn. My biggest disappointment was that all the good dining options are on the other side of the national mall.

I chose this hotel for a spur-of-the moment trip, based on location (close to the highway and Mall) and prices. I was pleasantly surprised by the large and lively lobby and courtyard, super-friendly staff, and big, quiet king room. Bed was super comfy, room seemed brand new and thoughtfully designed, bathroom was clean and modern. We appreciated the Keurig coffee... More

Was in Washington DC for my work and stayed at the Holiday Inn. Not to far from the airport and close to the Smithsonian Museums. The room was nice and clean. The hotel offered two restaurants that were average. Price was good for DC.

Overall a decent place with easy access to the Metro. Location is very good for the Air and Space museum however there are limited places to eat nearby so if you are coming with family, you will need to decide if you want to eat at the hotel restaurants or take a decent walk to cab to the north side...

This hotel is in a good downtown DC location, however, the food options outside of the hotel are scarce at night and weekends as this area is mostly a business district. Only 1-2 blocks from the metro and air & space museum though which made it very convienient when doing sightseeing. It has a cool rooftop pool with a great... More
