“Jewel of a hotel/restaurant in the heart of Old Town”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

I routinely eat at the restaurant at the Holiday Inn Express because of the great food (love their burgers and ribeye steak!), the exceptional service by Bill at the bar (that guy REALLY knows warm, friendly customer service!), and the easy-access location. When our out-of-town guests come in, we have them stay next door at this hotel, which has always been a good experience for our guests. The pool is great, the rooms are comfy and well-kept, the hotel is clean and tidy, the staff is friendly and compentent, and the rates are affordable - overall a great place! The convenient location within minutes of Reagan Airport and a taxi stand right out front make it super easy to get to. Within walking distance of Old Town's Historic district makes it even better.

This is a very nice place to visit...I'll be back, usually every other month, and without having to worry about accomodations, this is very cool.

I recommend meeting Bill the "bartender" if you get the chance, he's a very handsome and reserved professional doing what he loves to do.

The rooms are a nice size and very clean, the staff is pleasent and respectful and the food is good and priced right!.

Having spent sometime in the hotel and the bar restaurant, I must say this is the most well run and pleasant places to meet, eat and to unwine after a long day. Bravo zulu to the entire staff and a "noteworthy" to Bill.

I travel for business on a regular basis. Having stayed at many hotels accross North America, this hotel offers first rate customer service of any hotel that I've stayed at during the past year. The front desk staff Alex and Tiffany were very attentive to my needs and went above and beyond on several occasions. Also, sitting at the resto/bar at the end of every day was sure a pleasure...the food quality (including soup du jour) and service provided by Bill the bartender were so good that I simply looked forward to landing there at the end of every day. Highly Recommended hotel and I truly look forward to staying there again.
