Great Location

This hotel is just a couple of blocks from the mall - near the Air and Space Museum and the Native American museum. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful.

1 block from Smithsonian Air Space Museum, 1 block from L'Enfant Plaza

This hotel is about as close to the main attractions around the mall you can get without staying at the Smithsonian itself. Hotel is 9 story with roof pool area view of capitol at night that is fit for framing. At street level you are walking distance from a CVS, McDonalds, Quizinos, Starbucks and other local food places. Hotel's offerings are also not bad but little pricey. Access to Metro at 7th and Maryland (L'Enfant Plaza) can be done via the Capitol Galleria Mall. L'Enfant has access to all Metro trains so travel around the city is made simple with a 1-7 day pass. Saves miles of walking around the city without fumbling each day on how much it cost to travel. The Metro in this city is fantastically deployed and run. People are courteous and helpful if you get lost too. Draw backs are the Amtrak stop on the south side of the building gets a little noisy at times. The hotel also seems to attract kids (teens) on 2-3 day trips with classmates so you may have to deal yelling, giggling in the halls and slamming doors. Aside from this the staff and location just can not be topped for the price.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy full day tickets for Metro(subway) and use it daily to travel. Save lots of money over car rentals and taxis. (We paid $141 total for 3ppl x 7 all day passes) Metro's largest hub (L'Enfant Plaza) is 1 block away through Capitol Galleria Mall. So walking to this metro stop requires very little outside time to access.

Great location

Very clean rooms, friendly staff, safe environment. Fabulous pillows and comfortable bed. Great bar close to lobby. Person I spoke with told me there was a microwave in the room but there wasn't . It would have been an additional charge to have it delivered. Not good!

Great intro to D.C.

This was my first time to D.C., and i can't say anything negative about it! The Holiday Inn Capitol was great. Excellent location ( 1.5 blocks to the Air & Sapce Museum and 2 blocks to the Smithsonian Castle. L Enfant Plaza Metro is less than a block away, and if you want to take the 5A Bus from Dulles Int. it drops you off right across the street. Good buffets offered for both breakfast and dinner and a nice bar to relax in at the end of a long day

Great location

Staff was very nice. Room was comfortable and clean. We picked this hotel due to location all the museums and National Mall. Also very close to a metro stop. We would stay there again hands down.

great location and value

We just spent five nights at the Holiday Inn and had a great time. The room was large and comfortable. Staff very attentive from the front desk to the conceige. We easily walked to almost all the monuments as well as to China town. This is a great location for seeing the DC area

Good choice for families

We stayed here for four days over the the weekend of the cherry blossom festival. The hotel is located very close to the museums. There are no decent restaurants nearby, Starbucks in the lobby was great though. The room was average. A little worse for the wear, but worth the price. Our room was right next to the elevator, and surprisingly not that loud. I would stay here again.

Great for Smithsonian museum visitors

I stayed here with my 9 year old grandson on a recent DC trip. The hotel is only two short blocks from the Air and Space museum. Very convenient for visitng all the wonderful national museums on the mall and in the area. Very comfortable large rooms. This is a kid friendly hotel , kids under 12 eat free in the hotel restaurant. There is a CVS on the same block where you can pick up snacks.

Fantastic Trip to DC

The hotel is in a superb location a block off the mall and a short walk to the Aero and Space Museum. The rooms were clean and comfortable but we spent little time in the room it self. We wandered the 19 Smithsonian (all free of charge) and took in the monuments, State Captial and White House.

Don't get the Trolley bus ticket, Metro is faster and cheaper. Often the bus was full and one had to wait an additional 30 min. for the next Trolley.
