“Good value for the money”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

The Holiday Inn Rosslyn at Key Bridge is a true good value. Leave your preconceived notions of Holiday Inn properties behind - this one is not your average Holiday Inn. Location is great, rooms are well-appointed, quiet, clean. The staff is courteous, albeit a bit short-handed on occasion. Vantage restaurant on the 17th floor has good quality food at reasonable prices, and the panoramic view of Washington DC is exceptional. Complimentary breakfast is good enough. Watching airliner and helicopter traffic seemingly close enough to touch is disconcerting for some, thrilling for others. My only negatives are that it is becoming a bit dated, and would benefit from a face-lift, especially in the bathrooms, and that I couldn't get my room down below 75F without leaving the balcony door open.

Room Tip: 15th and 16th floors are listed as "Executive" - less kids.

This Hotel was convenient to D.C and Alexandria and had free parking for Hotel Guests. The rooms were functional with tile entries and lower ceilings than most Holiday Inns. They did have comfortable beds and pillows and big floor to ceiling windows to an outdoor balcony. There was an extra sink outside of the bathroom which could be used if two people were sharing the room. The service at check in was friendly. I did go to the 17th Floor for Dinner and due to delays in service for what appeared to be setting up for an event, I waited and then ended up leaving before ordering. I noticed there was a group that was having a meeting or conference at the hotel. This hotel was more reasonably priced than some nearby for the location.

Room Tip: Bring earplugs as the hotel is very near - 4 miles from Regan National Airport and the plane noise s...

We stayed here with our two children (7&9) and they loved the balcony and watching the planes fly overhead. Thankfully, once the balcony was closed, that noise stopped! The bathroom was very small and dated. The pool was a decent temperature, but the whole area was very dark and in need of a makeover. The beds were comfortable and the bedding was recently upgraded.
The parking was close to the hotel and we were able to leave our car for a couple of hours after check-out which was a real bonus!!

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony view of the river!

From check in to departure the staff was helpful, friendly and very professional.
The room was spacious and clean. The restaurant on the 17th floor has a fantastic view and the menu prices are reasonable. The wait staff were professional and the service excellent. The complimentary breakfast was very abundant, leaving nothing out. For someone who is touring D.C. This is a perfect spot to use as your home base. I definitely would stay there again.

My family of 4 stayed here in November. It was a great base to lay our weary heads down after a long day of sightseeing. Getting into DC could not have been easier. Just a quick walk out of the parking garage, cross the street to the aerial walkway of the Metro stop. (( Heads up, this Metro stop has the LONGEST escalator down to the Metro. There is an elevator available too.) A few quick stops to the Mall. Easy. It is just across the bridge to Georgetown. The weather was cold during our visit so we opted to drive instead. Speaking of driving, as mentioned by other posters, parking was FREE! Great perk. Plenty of parking between the outdoor and inside covered garage. There is an indoor pool that we did not use because we were exhausted at night. Also, there was construction going on down the street (by Metro) so we requested a Potomac view. LOL I hadn't seen this mentioned so I will warn families with small children now... the planes ROAR past your windows every 5-10 minutes up until about 10pm and I mean RIGHT PAST. I've stayed in airport hotels that were MUCH more soundproofed than this one. If you have an early bedtime and a light sleeper, I might suggest an alternate hotel until the construction side is completed. The free morning breakfast (priority rewards) was sufficient and the morning staff could not have been more gracious. VERY friendly and helpful. This is in stark contrast to the grouchy evening staff who forgot to take our son's meal off of the bill. Advice: go some place else for dinner. Would I repeat? possibly if the price was a deal. I agree that the hotel needs some refreshening.

Room Tip: Potomac views are nice but the planes roar past every 5-10 minutes until about 10pm.

I stayed here five nights for a conference in early January. This Holiday Inn is not a particularly attractive hotel. The hallways could use some brighter bulbs and you walk into the room through a tiled laundry room with an ironing board, iron, hanging bar, and extra sink. Still, it is functional, clean, comfortable, and well-located. The view and location are terrific, the rest of the hotel was nothing special but nothing to complain about either. Cab fare from Reagan airport was $20 with tip, or the Orange line Metro is 3 blocks away. There is also a parking garage.
Checkin was straightforward and all automated wake up calls came on time. My room did have a beautiful view of Georgetown and the Potomac River, along with a small walk-out balcony. The room is equipped with a smoke alarm and sprinkler, and two locks on the door. Since I am Priority Club, I also received free breakfast daily, free internet, and U.S.A. Today to my door. Thermostat in the room worked fine and HVAC was quiet. Ice and laundry are down the hall, and you can take the stairs to other floors, although the elevator wait wasn’t terrible like some other hotels. There are signs up claiming the hotel is being remodeled, but I didn’t encounter any noise or inconvenience.
The hotel has a restaurant on the top floor which features a pretty view of the Potomoc and Georgetown. This is where the free buffet breakfast was offered, including bacon/sausage/eggs/biscuits with gravy, sweet rolls, toast/bagels, cut fruit, juice and coffee. The breakfast wasn’t good enough that I was ever tempted to eat dinner here. There is also a lunch counter on the first floor which offers made-to-order grill sandwiches and pretty decent soup. I did not find a bar, but there is a pool hall across the street. The hotel includes a small pool and exercise room on the 2nd floor.
The hotel is right at the end of the Key Bridge, meaning it is a short walk across the river to the shops or College eateries of Georgetown. It is also a block from the Metro, and taxis were plentiful on the street. Starbucks is 2 blocks south on N. Lynn St. There is a Rite Aid pharmacy in the Metro shops, and a CVS and Safeway about 2 blocks NW. There is an elevated walkway from the lobby which leads to the office building across the street, which includes a small convenience store, a barber shop, a dry cleaner and an outstanding Vietnamese cafeteria (Delightful Food Court) which offers outstanding Peruvian rotisserie chicken, Vietnamese soup, Chinese food, a salad bar, and other lunch offerings.
My double queen room includes a flat screen TV, as well as a large desk with phone, desk lamp with extra outlets, extra chair and wastebasket, easy chair with reading lamp, small dresser, end table with alarm clock and phone. Bed linens were terrific. The only noise I heard from neighbors was Saturday evening.
There is no closet, but a hanging bar that suffices. Ironing board, iron, safe, ice bucket, single cup coffee maker, and hair dryer are in the room. There is no refrigerator, microwave, or minibar.
The bathroom is very small with a small tub/shower, toilet, and sink behind the door. The second sink is outside the door: not useful for me this time I was travelling alone on business, but a nice feature when I travel with the family since one person can be showering while another is shaving, putting on makeup, or brushing teeth.

We actually used priority points which included an automatic upgrade to stay here. The king suite was amazing! The bedding here was lush and loved the memory foam. Slept for 10 hours straight! Good breakfast in the upstairs restaurant with a great view of Georgetown. Accessibility was my favorite aspect since the metro was only a block away and Georgetown was a quick walk over the bridge.
