Holliday Inn Capitol

Overall experience was very good,. However upon arrival I was told parking would be an additional $40 including taxes. We were not there long enough to use additional amenities.

Great location!

The location was incredible for visiting all of the monuments and museums! The only small problem was the 21st Restaurant's service. They were very slow and forgetful and with 3 children that was tough.

Our Washington DC stay

Had a perfect hotel stay, friendly staff, perfect clean rooms. Only complaint was the water was not hot when you took a shower. Which after walking all over dc is not a great thing when you take a shower in the evening.

Hotel Room in need of updating

The hotel is in a great location to see the National Mall. Very close to Air & Space Museum-- but-- our room was close to the Railroad tracks-- very loud, the toilet seat slid everytime you sat on it-- and we are not heavy, the faucet handles were so loose you could take them off and the showerknob would not turn past a certain point so the temperature was milldly warm.-- no newspaper in the morning either-- it was fine for the price and location but the room needed maintenance. We traveled to the monuments and museums by bike. -it was the best way to travel with the kids-no complaining about being tired!

Great location

Very nice hotel, the best part of this hotel was the location. I block from the metro and 2 blocks from The Air and Space Museum. Staff was nice and helpful. The restaurant was very expensive and the food was not all that great. The area is lacking restaurants. McDonalds, CVS, Starbucks, and Quiznos located on same block.

Excellent location for on the foot travelers. Museums and Washington Mall were all accessible and within walking distance. Washington Metro station was close by for farther trips to Arlington and Georgetown.
