Not What Expected

Would not recommend Wed, Jan 5, 2011
Hotel was OK. Lacked some of the basic things (i.e. Travel Shampoo etc). Cleaning staff was very noisy (vacuuming at 8:30pm) and it didn't help the walls were paper thin and you could hear normal conversations from the room next door. Also failed to mention in the description that the hotel was right next to (you could see it) the rails and every couple of hours you were blasted by the train horn. Also not disclosed until check-in was the $30 + taxes PER DAY to park your car. There are no restaurants within a reasonable walking distance either, only fast food. I would try a different hotel next time and would only stay here in a pinch.

Dining

No shopping or dining within a reasonable walking distance. All good restaurants are 1+ mile away.

Room was clean, two double beds, fridge in room was useful, a small microwave would have been nice. Lighting in bathroom was very dim. Front desk, housekeeping, and restaurant staff were pleasant and helpful. Great location for Smithsonian museums. A good value hotel.

Great Hotel

Would recommend Sun, Dec 26, 2010
Our Family was on an extended vacation, and we are staying at this hotel over the holiday's. It is a quality hotel with beautiful spacious rooms. You can't beat the location. There are a few restaurants in the lobby, and a Starbucks. It is just right off the National Mall, and we walked to the capital and all of the monuments. On Christmas Morning we had a stocking full of candy hanging on our door. That was a very nice touch. The one thing that isn't mentioned is that parking is extra. It was $33 a day, but the parking garage is in the same building, so it is very convenient. I'd highly recommend this hotel for a Washington Vacation. I got big Kudo's from the family for booking it.

Great location!

Would recommend Sat, Nov 27, 2010
So, this hotel is only average for it's rooms that are older and look worn...but, it is awesome for its' customer service and their location which sits almost right next to the National Mall. If you are traveling with small kids, this makes it perfect for sight-seeing as you can return back to the hotel very easily when the kids get tired. The hotel also sits right next to a railroad track so let the front desk know that you want a quieter room...not next to the tracks. There are not many restaurants nearby within walking distance but a small cab fare and you have plenty of options (Old Ebbitt's Grill, for example). The hotel restaurant was only so-so for the price but there is a Starbucks inside (a plus for tired parents!) and a McDonald's right down the street for picky kids. Overall, I would totally recommend this hotel for convenience and friendliness. Our vacation was amazing!

Dining

Don't worry about the lack of restaurants nearby...It was only a short cab ride most of the time and the food was well worth the small fare (about $10-15)

great stay

Would recommend Sat, Nov 27, 2010
we didn't get to the hotel until late that night. The staff was very helpful to us. The rooms were nice, clean, and comfortable. We also enjoyed that there were three different places to eat at the hotel. The deli was a great price and nice variety to please everyones taste buds for lunch.....and there was a STARBUCKS!!!!!!!! yum yum!!! The hotel was a skip away from the Smithsonian Air and Space museum...the kids favorite place. I loved the hotel allowing us to have a late check out without extra cost....Holiday Inn has won me over with the their kindness,courtesy, and charm. loved it!!!! can't wait to go back.

Entertainment hint

short walk to the Smithsonian Museums. We rode a taxi to the White house, and walked back to the hotel for lunch. It was only about a 20 min. walk. Great location. We only drove to the Lincoln Monument, but if it was warmer....we would have walked there too.

The Holiday Inn Capitol is located just a couple blocks from Capitol Hill and a couple blocks from the L'Enfant Plaza Metro stop. This makes it very easy to get around DC and hit all the sites that you want to see. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Coming from Northern California arriving Monday evening and depaarting Friday morning. Location made it perfect to plan see what we wanted. Housekeeping staff was excellent. Problem with virtually no hot water for showers. Tepid at best. Business Center didn't respond when the printers weren't functioning. Printing Boarding Passes was impossible. Starbucks right there! YES. Hotel Breakfast Buffet was mediocre and overpriced.

Entertainment hint

Take the Metro! Full Day pass is $9.00. Can be used on all the lines.

Average at Best

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 1, 2010
The rooms were adequate, the location was either great or poor depending on your needs. It is great as it is 2 blocks from the Smithsonian and plenty of landmarks. While you are near the sights, you are really far from any restaurants or bars. There are a couple fast food joints outside, but that's it. The hotel bar had such poor service that we just left after waiting 30 minutes to even be acknowledged. The Hotel Bistro was slightly below average for price and food quality.

Nightlife hint

There is a string of bars/restaurants/shops about a half mile or so up Independence past the Capitol.

We came to DC for the Stewart/Colbert rally...I booked this the day after it was announced. It has to be the closest hotel to the Natl' Mall, and we thought it was a great value for the rates. Hotel and room were clean, staff was friendly.

Holiday Inn, 550 C Street

Would recommend Sun, Oct 31, 2010
We checked in for a night and got a queen-sized bed and a sofa. Hotel was spacious and toiletries were of good quality (Bath & Body Works brand, and the women's makeup remover towelette was a nice touch). The decor and room furniture was not extraordinary, but it was decent. The mini fridge and complementary coffee and tea were good.

Nightlife hint

The location was great. The metro is two blocks from the hotel and made going out convenient.
