Enjoyed my stay I only wish things such as a refrigerator and microwave were standard instead of 10.00 extra each night for each appliance. Also my room was very dark even with the all of the lights on and the curtains open. The hotel is within walking distance of a small shopping center Crystal City Mall this mall doesnt have... More

Holiday Inn Capitol is the perfect location for visiting Washington DC. Be prepared to walk. A lot. The National Mall is just up the street and the major sites are on the Mall.

My husband, son, and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Washington for three nights. We chose this hotel specifically for it's central location. Minutes away from the Air and Space Museum, walking distance to the majority of Smithsonian museums. We booked the room online, got a fairly good deal, and when we arrived we were happy with the accommodations. The... More

Upon making the reservation, I requested a quiet room. We check in, get to the room and find that we were on the Metro side of the hotel. Not what I call quiet. I went down to the front desk to change the room and got attitude from the front desk staff. Once in the new room we found that... More

Was here for a week on business and had the misfortune of being here during the power outage on what had to be the hottest weekend in July. Power went out around noon Friday and wasn't back on until Saturday noon. No air conditioning or elevators which sucked because I was on the top (9th) floor. The hotel passed out... More

Very convenient location, nice room. MAKE SURE to ask for a room at the front of the hotel (facing C Street), as rooms at the rear have a very noisy railway right outside. The room was very comfortable, and the hotel has a good restaurant and gym and pool.

This hotel is the perfect location to explore Washington DC. It is very close to the mall monuments, museums, and within easy walking distance to the Capitol. If you don't mind a bit more walking, you can also get to the restaurants of Chinatown, the White House, the National Archives, and Ford's Theater. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable....
