Walking distance to attractions.

Hotel room and other properties clean with no smelly cigarette smoke lingering anywhere. Starbucks connects with lobby. Parking went from arrival until 5 p.m. the day of departure even though check-out was 10 a.m. Great value at about $33 for two days parking instead of more for one day parking elsewhere. Friendly staff.

Great location, average hotel

I would say the location is perfect for mall walking and museums discovering, so I would recommend this hotel for people who don't want to walk so much. However, the area around the hotel is not nice at evening or night time, and there is nothing to do around (no bars, no restaurants). The hotel is typically an old Holiday Inn: Rooms are average, smell musty, refrigerator and AC are VERY noisy. The lobby, breakfast, restaurant room: everything is average. And the price is high... For a previous trip we did we went to the Grand Hyatt and we will definitely go back there next time, even if you have to walk a little bit more.

Weekend in DC

Friendly staff. Quick check in and out. Dining options just okay. Typical hotel food. Out of the way location for restaurants. Take a cab or the Metro. Metro station is close. Room was just okay. Nothing special. Due for a refurb soon. Unless you want to spend all day walking don't believe the distance list to monuments and museums (except air and space museum). It's a long walk to anywhere! I'd stay there again now that I know what to expect.

Use the subway (metro). Start sightseeing as sonn as everything opens up. DC at night bus tour is worth the $$.

Washington DC Trip

Great location, Save yourself a few bucks and Try to find a parking spot in the parking garage across the street. Big Savings on the weekends and lots of room. During the week may be a different story.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

The Holiday Inn capitol is a great way to go. Just park your car and walk. Just across the street from the Air & Space m. and across the mall to th M. of art. A long but pleasent walk to the Washington M.Then onward to the lincoln m. What a grand site.

DC Trip

While in DC we visited all the museums and the hotel was in walking distance of everything. Took the DC Duck tour. That was a fun time for sure! Our next trip back with be to see the monuments in the fall. Our biggest complaint about our stay was the hotel's a/c thermastat. It had a motion sensor so during the day if you were moving around the temp was comfortable but at night when things got still the a/c wouldn't come on unless someone got up and walked in front of the thermastat control on the wall. Most likely will choose a different hotel next trip. I would only recommend this hotel if the person or persons didn't mind it being warm while they slept. If you are a hot natured person don't stay here unless they change the thermastats.
