Very good experience. When we first checked in, our room smelled slightly like fresh cigarette smoke. I tried to call down to the office but there were several people in line checking in. We shut the AC off and after a bit the smell disappeared. I don't know if it was a nearby room or if it was coming in... More

Overall clean, friendly, comfortable. Slept great, the pool had a lifeguard and was perfect. Will stay again next time we are up to DC. Good people. The food was just ok, but expected for what is basically a business hotel. Halls were a bit dark and being remodeled, but ok since we slept in our room :)

The location of the hotel was perfect for the price. The metro station is a block away (with a Starbucks across the street) and an easy 30 minute ride to downtown DC. The hotel offers a free shuttle to Old Town or anywhere nearby you need to go. The driver is awesome and it was so much easier than trying... More

My family and I stayed here four nights while we were visiting D.C. All of the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The front desk attendant working our first night there was very helpful with all our questions about the metro. And the lady who I believe either manages or is the hostess in the food area was very sweet... More

The metro was so convenient to go everywhere and the local trolley was wonderful to hop on and hop off in Alexandria which is a beautiful city. Restaurants were nice and had outside seating. Slightly expensive. The holiday Inn staff were amazingly helpful and took us anywhere downtown Alexandria.

The location is great, just off the metro station. Downtown DC is a 30 minute ride. The property is clean but needs renovation. My door wouldn't lock from inside. Also, the cistern was broken - water would keep running down the toilet bowl. I did love the bed and the 42" TV with lots of HD channels. The room was... More
