“Fantastic place to explore Washington”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

We had stayed in this property for over 24 hours only. But were delighted with the reception, room facilities, food quality, service at the complimentary breakfast and the tour desk. Very close to the L'Enfant plaza metro and just a turn from the airport metro bus stop. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the road is what we got.. Good enough

My wife, nephew and I stayed at a 2-double bed room at this hotel for Thanksgiving 2012. It is right near the Air & Space Museum and very close to the mall (where the capitol and many government buildings are located). There is a nice restaurant on premises and also a Starbucks. The rooms were modern, well-decorated, and comfortable. The check-in staff were pleasant and straight-forward. They also had some special holiday-related flyers at the front desk.

The only drawback to this location is the parking. It is an adjacent structure right around the corner from the hotel entrance, so it is convenient, but the rate was approximately $35 per day. It also had a low clearance, so I could not park my SUV with a car-top carrier inside the garage, and had to park it in the open-air "high clearance" area on a ramp next to the garage.

Sounds as if you, your wife and nephew had a nice visit to Washington, DC this Thanksgiving. I appreciate you commenting on our hotel, location and food & beverage outlets. And just so you know, DC does have a high parking tax. It is 18%. This increase went into effect in October 2011.

A recent trip to Washington D.C. found me lodging at the Holiday Inn Washington-Capitol in the heart of the Smithsonian Museum district where I was engaged in academic research. Of course, the location was excellent but so were the accommodations and staff. When I had questions, people were quick to respond with information or take care of a concern. Of course, this attention made the stay pleasant, but what made the experience especially nice was the buffet breakfast. FYI: Be sure to request the buffet breakfast as part of the reservation or scroll down the website to find this option!

The location of this hotel is enough reason to opt for this hotel. It is just a few blocks away from the Air and Space museum. They also have a travel desk which was very useful. I booked my hop-on-off passes from them and it was super convenient.

Close to the mall. Excellent accommodations - small refrigerator and microwave, coffeemaker made breakfast and snacks easy. Close to L'Efant Metro on Maryland/7th street exit. Nice staff. Nice bar on lobby. Starbucks on site.

Great location very short walk to the subway and the smithsonian can't beat the location. I would stay here again next time I make my way to D.C. The HSKP staff did a great job at keeping my room clean and making sure I had everything while I was there for 5 days

The hotel is conveniently located among all the sights to see in the DC area. It is convenient to the L'Efflant Plaza Metro station where four metro lines intersect.

The facility is clean and very comfortable. The staff is accommodating and went out of their way to be helpful.

On the downside, the only minor inconvenience was the lack of food facilities in the area. To get a really good meal, a car was needed. Even with that said, we will be back to enjoy this great facility again! Thanks.
