Our conference supposedly reserved a block of rooms here, but they were all gone for the first night by the time I tried. Stayed the first night in another hotel.
I have not stayed in a Holiday Inn for some time, and the level of this hotel was much higher than I expected. It was clean and well appointed with large rooms and all the things you expect in a nice hotel, plus free internet that worked well. Staff were friendly and helpful. It was expensive at over $200 per night with tax, but unfortunately this is Washington and it is hard to do better.
The location is a somewhat generic area of office blocks, but it's a reasonably short walk to the Ballston Metro stop. There are some decent restaurants in the area, mostly mid-upscale chains.
I was not around long enough to try the hotel's own restaurant, pool, or gym.
