I was in town on a government related trip for a few days. The hotel was average, room, lobby, gym/pool areas were clean. On my first day when I arrived I thought there was a strange musky smell in the hallway of my room. But after I came and left a few times I did not notice anything. The king... More

Nice standard Holiday Inn--dependable brand that did not disappoint. We got three rooms recently for a bit of a family reunion and touring DC. Check in was flawless and friendly (we had made reservations a month in advance). The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. The bathrooms were a bit dated, but again, clean, big enough, and plenty of... More

The HI is located in a safe neighborhood, and is within walking distance of several restaurants . It is a older property, but has large rooms and they are very clean. The shuttle is pretty efficient. There is complimentary coffee in the restaurant in the morning. So what is the main function of the attendant in the pool area? Is... More

Up to today, the stay was as expected from a Holiday Inn with no complaints. However, today after our room was cleaned and a day done exploring D.C I go to wash up but discovered that my orthodontic retainers were missing from the sink's countertop.

From afternoons, hourly shuttle to King Street for restaurants. c15 minute walk to Braddock Road Metro (not 8 minutes, as claimed by reception desk).

Usually stay at the lesser chains like Days Inn, thought we would upgrade for a special DC vacation with the grand kids. This isn't really an upgrade, mistaken about HI. Average room, missing some touches like coffee or cookies, pool closes early. AC is working pretty hard to keep the room about 80. If you're just looking for a spot... More
