I was looking for ages for a place to stay in DC and I came across this hotel. It’s about 2 miles from Union Station and Capital Building. It’s a 2 minute walk to the Smithonian Air and Space Museum. We booked the bed and breakfast and the food was fantastic. If you don’t book b&

This hotel is nicely located next to L'Efant Plaza (And the DC Metro stop). It's also very close to the Mall so accessibility for tourists is great.

The only thing: there are very few restaurants around this hotel, and the two in the hotel are WAY overpriced for the quality

The greatest part of the hotel is the location which is hard to beat, which is one of hotels closest to the national mall and attractions over there. It's 5mins walk to air & space museum or 10mins walk to Capitol, yet it's still such a quiet place to take a good rest no matter w

How far is this hotel from the National Museum of African American History and Culture? I will be using a scooter as I am disabled.
It’s at least a mile away. I might suggest a taxi, Uber, or Lyft instead. Or stay at the JW Marriott or Wiltmore hotels. They are much nicer than the Holiday Inn, are less than a half-mile from the African American Musuem, and there are several very good restaurants near them. There are no restaurants near the Holiday Inn.

We are taking a tour that meets at elefant metro plaza, is this hotel close?
Brianna, Thanks for your question! We are just a couple of blocks away from the L'Enfant Plaza station's Maryland Avenue exit. At the top of the escalators, walk through (or around) the building in front of you and we will be on the other side.
