“Decent Hotel”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Decent Hotel, Clean rooms, -- very close to the Mall so that you can walk to a lot of the places however if you come to DC in the summers you wont want to do that. Costs approx. USD 15 from the station by cab. Concierge was not really very helpful as was the travel desk but luckily we had made all our bookings prior.

I stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed the time when I was at the hotel
The room is big and comfotable, and there is a great bar in the hotel that has music shows every wednesday.

The location of the hotle is very good, very close to the subway and because of that, easy to get from the airport.

The breakfeast is really great there, a very high class indeed, a vast vary of foods in offered and a friendly staff.

The staff on the reception is very friendly too and professional.
The hotel is right at the Mall and 5 minutes walk will get you there.

Stayed at the Capitol Holiday Inn for a business meeting at the FAA. The hotel is very conveniently located to the Metro and is walking distance to the National Mall. I've stayed here several times and never leave unhappy. The cost is quite high, but that is a supply and demand issue most of the time. The rooms are a bit dated but sufficient. The staff has always been extremely helpful. I recommend staying here for any trip to DC.

We had stayed here 15 yrs ago--read all reviews--we found room very clean and neat--about to undergo a major room renovation--we found it close to all Mall sights, monuments, and the Metro--we mastered the Metro in off peak hrs and after first tries it was easy--very easy to get to Arlington--multiple taxis outside make a run across town to a restaurant easy so car stays in garage under hotel but just like NYC it costs a lot to park a car--$35 a day--breakfast included in room is a large buffet and makes an early getaway to sights easy in the am--

This Holiday Inn would be just another solid hotel option in DC if it weren't for its price and location.

Our room was clean, large enough and came with an in-room fridge as well as free wi-fi (two things which don't always come included in a booking). The breakfast buffet had biscuits and gravy on top of the usual hot and cold fare (bacon, sausages, french toast, potatoes, fresh fruit, cereals, pastries), and the in-house restaurant served solid, if unexciting, dinner fare. Didn't get to try out the pool or the fitness room, but this hotel had these amenities available.

What really made our stay a convenient one was the hotel's location: a 2-minute walk from the Smithsonian Air & Space museum, less than half a mile's walk to the Capitol, and a 15-minute walk to the Washington Monument. For DC visitors like us with a baby and a 6-year old, this was the perfect place for us to stay. We didn't really need to be close to any of the foodie places or trendy nightspots (of which there are none in this hotel's immediate vicinity), but we did want to be able to walk to the key sights in the city.

We would stay here again should we return to DC in the future.

Average hotel but great for sight seeing. No need for car rental. Walked to everything. Poor for restaurants as they are several blocks away. Rooms away from the train tracks are quiet, so request those.
