“Decent for the price”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

I was travelling with my husband who was attending a conference in town. The hotel rooms were clean and spacious. The location was most convenient. I walked to the White House and National Mall, which was only a 15 min walk from the hotel. The breakfast spread was good and the service was excellent.

This hotel is perfectly located within walking distance to the White House, Smithsonian, Embassy Row, restaurants & shopping. Spent 4 days attending a conference & the hotel staff was wonderful. I typically do not enjoy "hotel food" however the food & beverage department prepared great food which was beautifully presented ... they exceeded every expectation. Rooms we're clean, modern & free internet. Our group is planning another conference at this hotel next year. Five Stars! Best value in DC.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn on Rhode Island Ave to visit family who lived nearby. Location of the hotel is very convenient. About a 15min taxi ride from Reagan National Airport. Walkable to the White House, Georgetown, various museums and a block away there are many restaurants and shops, which was really great. There are many taxis around, so it's very easy to hail one if you need to go farther out.

Hotel staff were friendly, professional and prompt to respond to requests. Rooms are standard quality, clean and with WiFi.

The only problem we had with our stay was the soundproofing. We heard quite a bit of noise from the hallways and there seems to have been some construction or repairs that were taking place in the room above ours, which was irritating and was happening quite early in the morning.

Other than that, it's a standard hotel in a very convenient location.

Room was nicely appointed. Satff was friendly and affable. During the night, children were loud and running in the hallway. Was annoying but I did not make a complaint. Restaurant... Oh No! Tried a burger at dinner time. Service was very good but the food - underwhelming. In the morning went for breakfast for the convenience. Decided to have the buffet ($15.99) Was not told there was only about 5 or 10 minutes left, so that came as a surprise. Wasn't particularly good anyway, so I basically wasted that money. I would stay here again, but would avoid the restaurant completely!

Hotel is clean and well run. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rate we booked included breakfast which was a full buffet with lots of choices. Room we were given had a powder room and a full bathroom. Bonus for 2 people trying to get ready in the morning or before going out for dinner. Only negative about the hotel was that the elevators are old and slow. I'd stay here again.

A top to bottom renovation has revitalized this property since my previous stay. A newly furnished contemporary lobby, bar/lounge and updated Avenue Cafe made for a most pleasurable experience. The new rooms have free WIFI, comfortable beds, flat screen TVs, excellent and plentiful lighting, large work desks--also a sofa in many rooms--and open views. The baths have message shower heads and spa products as well as lots of thick towels.

I have enjoyed the seasonal rooftop pool with great views and deck--a relaxing plus in summer.

The staff are most friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about goings on around town. The excellent breakfast buffet includes healthy options such as fresh melons, strawberries and blueberries as well as tasty sausages, bacon and delicious home made pastries. I must also compliment the perfectly prepared, generous made to order omelets.

The location cannot be beat. Whole Foods is right around the corner. Metro transportation and The White House are each a 5 minute walk as are all the trendy new restaurants and shopping on 14th Street.

For its renovation, service, amenities and location, I look forward to my next stay at Holiday Inn Central White House!

Room Tip: Rooms on the rear are quiet and those on the 8th and 9th floors have panoramic views up to the Natio...

This hotel is located in one of the best parts of the city. Busy during the day and quiet at night. Walking distance to the White House. Excellent shopping near by. Check out the massive Whole Foods near by. Clean rooms, good service, Weak WIFI signal in rooms but strong in lobby. Underground parking scary very small and if you drive a large vehilce/SUV, good luck is all I can say. People were nice enough. Overall a strong 4 out of 5.
