We stayed here last week during our trip to the D.C. area and were greatly satisfied. The public areas (lobby, restaurant & bar) were very modern and clean. The rooms were clean and well kept and the beds are very comfortable. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. They have a daily breakfast buffet which has a good variety...

We cannot wait to have you back! Come in the summer time and you can walk across the street to one of our favorite ice cream shoppes! All of the locals love it there! See you soon-

I went on a 3 day trip to Washington, D.C. With a group of my fellow journalists, this hotel is far from exceptional. I tested everyone's bed for bed bugs upon arrival and 3 of the 6 rooms tested positive! Besides that my room was not pleasant at all! The shower didn't drain properly and the bathroom door didn't lock....

How disturbing to have found bed bugs in your hotel room! With all of the tourists and travelers that come through our doors, we have heard our fair share of stories from the hotels downtown. But knowing this, we have our hotel tested every six months and have not been positive for any such creatures in years. We tend to...

My friend and I stayed at this hotel while searching for an apartment in Alexandria/DC. Check in was easy and the staff was very friendly. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We grabbed a drink in the lounge, it was nice. The room was located near the ice machine and elevator, but we didn't hear much noise. Parking was pretty...

DC is a wonderfu city to explore via the metro system and it's only getting better with the addition of the silver line in Tyson's corner. We are thrilled to hear you made such great use of it while you were staying with us. Free parking never hurt anyone and we are happy to help! Welcome to DC and please...

What a great place to stay. Steps to the Metro. Wonderful staff, Wanda and Mo in the dining room. Comfy beds, choice of firm or soft pillows. Terrific breakfast. All the amenities. Will stay there again for sure. Thanks Holiday Inn..

Very adequate stay at this hotel conveniently located for flights from National Airport. Complimentary shuttle provided. I will point out the excellent service at hotel restaurant and a very nice menu and reasonable prices. Not particularly expensive and quite a good value for money. Not found any convenience stores nearby, which wasn't a big problem at the time but I...

Hello German and thank you for staying with us before your flight to your next destination. We do hope you will visit us again the next time you are in town. Rumor has it we are getting more shops across the street so perhaps we will be able to offer you even more in the way of window shopping in...

I have stayed here in the past and this stay was an improvement over the past stays. The location is good fir me because it is near family, close to a Giant grocery store and Trader Joes not to mention Old Town. I asked for a quiet room and was given #100 near the lobby desk. It was spacious and...

We love hearing from our guests, even if they weren't actually staying at our hotel! Everyone is a guest when they stay at an IHG brand hotel and while we know which hotel you are referring to, unfortunately it was not the Holiday Inn on Eisenhower Avenue. Based on your description of the hotel front doors and the room number...

For the most part, this is a good value. We especially appreciated the free shuttle (anywhere within a few miles radius) and the fact that the metro was 1 block away. Old Town is close and full of shops and restaurants. Room: Beds are super high up but comfy. You get 2 soft pillows and 2 firm pillows, which is...

We often hear that the beds are a bit high, some guests have related them back to the feeling of being a kid having to jump into their bed! We do hope this wasn't too much of an issue in your case and are so glad to hear you enjoyed their comfort. Thank for alerting us to the service you...

This is a nice Holiday Inn to stay is for both business and leisure. You are across the street from the Eisenhower Metro station and numerous delightful restaurants. The staff is courteous and we found the facility clean and easy to maneuver. There is a hotel "local" shuttle that will take you into Old Towne and an AMC theatre next...

We booked this hotel due mainly to price and location when we planned to attend a family memorial in the area. It was desirable to mix in a bit of tourism due to proximity to Washington DC. We normally try to book hotels with free continental breakfast, but could not find one reasonably priced and offering free parking. Lack of...

Your experience is exactly what we hope every guest has at our hotel and thank you for letting us know about all of the positives you saw while here.

Hotel is old and tired - not what I expect from a Holiday Inn. Floors smell like they are trying to mask problems with strong cleaning solutions - and that smell drifts into the rooms. You just don't feel clean nor fresh in this hotel.
