Stayed overnight for visit to D.C. This property has been recently remodeled and everything seems fresh. On the positive side are the numerous tv channels (100+), fast elevators, a refrigerator/microwave in every room, and nice pillows and towels. I liked that a maintenance request form was placed in the guest guide. Also, the indoor pool looked nice even though I didn't use it, and the hotel is located near a Metro station and major highways. I was on the ninth floor and had no noise issues.
On the negative side was the very compact bathroom. Also a negative is the fact that Holiday Inn charges $6.95+ for the standard continental breakfast that is included at no charge for competitor chains. The lobby seemed a bit small as well.
That said, my stay was totally acceptable with no issues. Yet there was nothing that made me want to stay here again. Should I visit the area again I would look at other hotels, but I could be comfortable with staying here again.
