Forget the Wi-Fi internet, it sucked

Everything was great except the wi-fi internet service was sub-standard. It was greatly overloaded. If you wanted to really use it you had to do so early in the morning.

Great central location

Very good service, nicer rooms than other posts suggested. Parking is $30 a night, but is comparable to other hotels. Close walking distance to national mall and all museums saved on driving and parking costs.

Ideal location

Holiday Inn Washington Capital is ideally located to the metro and National Mall. Our family enjoyed the opportunity to rest our bodies in a comfortable surrounding before returning to the many attractions Washington DC has to offer.

First time in Washingto DC

Very nice hotel with a great location. Room was clean and comfortable. The Room Service food was excellent!! Service was very good. Would definately stay again at this hotel again. Conveinently located only 2 blocks from the Mall so, very easy to get anywhere. Taxi's were always available and reliable. Metro and Trolley stops were only 2 blocks away and great for the museums!

Quick Business Trip

It was the perfect location to the areas I needed to be at during my trip.The hotel is a very short walk to the L'Enfant Plaza metro station. A Starbucks is located next to the hotel and accessible without going outside. Also a very quick walk to a McDonalds and CVS store. Room was clean and comfortable. No complaints. I would definitely stay here again, even for a family trip with the kids.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Location is great for walking to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, NASA Headquarters, etc. Quick walk to L'Enfant Metro station also makes for easy access to many other DC attractions.

Walk to most attractions

The location is perfect for walking to the mall and most museums. Parking, however, is expensive at $30 per night and there is a $5 plus DC parking tax. Nits are the chair is a bit worn where it hits the table and initially the toilette seat is loose but got fixed. Make sure you ask for a quiet room since the train station and tracks next door is noisy if you face it.

don't trust the concierge

The concierge will only tell you what benefits them, so if it is a specific restaurant or tour, don't trust what they say

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!
