This is a pricey (for Holiday Inn) hotel but in a great location for seeing the Smithsonian museums and other mall area places of interest. The hotel restaurant is fine if you don't want to track down something more adventurous. Breakfast is not included in the price. Navigating the city traffic is a challenge to arrive here but parking is... More

My family and I visited during the hottest week in August. The hotel is two short blocks walk from the front doors of the Air and Space Museum. The hotel does have a morning trolley stop right out front if you purchase a trolley ticket. There are not many restaurants near the hotel that are family friendly. We are at... More

I was a bit nervous about my reservation because one of two rooms was booked as "run of the house". I also had a confirmed reservation for a King size room. We ended up with 2 rooms with 2 queen size beds which was fine. Just a bit confused as to why.... Loved the location, we could walk to all... More

I stayed for 2 nights and I had no issues with the hotel. It was clean and room service was great. The restaurants downstairs had good food. I was within walking distance to all the memorials, it took me 30 minutes to walk to Union station. I will definately be staying there on my next trip to DC.

If you want to be near the mall, this is the place to stay. Right across from the National air and space museum and about a 10 minute walk to the other Smithsonians. Room and bathroom was very clean and the price was very reasonable for being that close to the museums and federal buildings. The only downsides are there... More

Full fan makes a lot of noise and blows directly on the bed (and you implicitly); no fan makes it nice and toasty. 3. Internet quality is bad (could barely do email) 4. We had breakfast... More
