Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Obtained a good rate. Easy access to and from D.C. via car or metro. Metro only a couple of blocks walk from the hotel. Rooms were fine. Very helpful and courteous front desk staff. Great view of the city from the top floor restaurant.

We booked a vacation package to DC with Southwest Vacations that included 5 nights at this Holiday Inn. Since the government shutdown has essentially ruined our plans for a family visit to DC, we have called and emailed Holiday Inn several times to ask for either a refund or the chance to move our reservation to sometime in the future. They have flatly REFUSED to help us out. We even asked if we could stay at another HI location during the same dates. No one has offered us any compromise or assistance. So we have simply lost about $1000 with no recourse since it was prepaid as part of a vacation package. Very poor, shameful customer services. My family will not be visiting another Holiday Inn.

This hotel is two blocks from the Metro station (Rosslyn) and two blocks from the Key Bridge. The hotel is pretty nice for something affordable. If you can get a room on the side viewing the Key Bridge and the river, get it! Views from that side of the building are pretty cool. The rooms are pretty standard, but clean. All rooms have balconies, which is really nice when the weather is good. Open it up for some fresh air or to sit outside and relax. Definitely would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for the river side with the views and a higher floor if possible.

When we checked in, the staff at the desk were very courteous. Room was clean. Outside temp was in 80's. Unfortunately we were never able to adjust the room temp adequately though we adjusted the thermostat to 60. I was disappointed with the fitness center. There was little circulating air-I felt as if I was in a sauna. The 2 containers for wipes to clean the equipment were empty. No receptacle for used towels-they were thrown in a pile on the floor. Ice machine on our floor did not work our entire visit. Buffet breakfast was good. Several servers had difficulty communicating with guests due to language barrier. Desk staff not well informed-we were from out of town & given the wrong advice on where to change trains to go to Mount Vernon. While at the desk we observed a female attempting to get "train" directions. The girl at the desk was unable to assist her nor did she offer to find someone who could assist her. On our second (and last) morning there, we had requested a 7A wake-up call. Fortunately we awakeded on our own as the call still had not come when we left our room at 8A. When I mentioned this to the female at the fron desk as we were checking out, she made no apology-just stated "I don't know anything about that." This hotel was very convenient for our needs; however we were disappointed in the overall experience.

So there are lots of places to stay in the DC area. Why pick one over the other? Motel points? Breakfast? Convenience to metro? Noise? Location? Night life? Class? Restaurant? View? Availability?

Over a couple of decades I have stayed at this Holiday Inn perhaps ten times, but I wasn't sure what to expect after three or four years away and some mediocre reviews. I was pleasantly surprised.

I love the location next to the Key Bridge and so convenient to the Rosslyn metro station. If possible, I always take a walk from DC through Georgetown, over the bridge to the hotel. It's beautiful, especially at night. From the airport, why take a cab if you don't have much baggage? So convenient.

Rooms are a little small -- my only complaint, even though for one person it's not a problem. For a family it could be. Beds are very comfortable. Buffet breakfast is wonderful --one of the nicest for "free." At least they gave it to me for free with my Holiday Inn rewards account. If you don't have one, get it before staying here!!! And the view from the restaurant -- magnificent (for DC). They have good coffee too.

Noise - some from flights into Reagan. Nightlife - go to Georgetown. Places to eat outside of the hotel --enough. Grocery store and pharmacy -- not too far away on Wilson Blvd.

So overall - a great place, but not quite perfect. I'll stay here again! And that breakfast --what a deal, especially for the DC central area.

Room Tip: Get the breakfast for free!

I went to DC for a family reunion. I chose the Holiday Inn Rosslyn because of the price and location. It's a 5-minute walk from the Rosslyn Metro stop, which is also a stop for the Dulles Airport bus.

The hotel was very nice. I had a room on the 11th floor, with a balcony (though I was never able to open the door and go out onto the balcony). The bed was comfortable, the wi-fi worked well. There was no continental breakfast, and I didn't visit the on-site restaurant. I didn't have a car, so I can't comment on parking.

I'd been to DC before, but I'd never stayed in Arlington. The neighborhood had a lot of restaurants, but they all seemed to close by 9; the only exceptions I could find were Ruby Tuesdays (which closed at midnight) and a 24-hour McDonalds. Local attractions include the Watergate garage, where Woodward and Bernstein met with Deep Throat. Shopping consists of a variety of small shops, an overpriced Rite Aid at the Rosslyn Metro stop, and an outrageously overpriced Safeway supermarket (unless you have their discount card).

The Holiday Inn Rosslyn is a great choice for budget-conscious travelers. It's not in the heart of the city, but it's 5 minutes from the Metro, and very close to everything else. I will definitely be back.
