great location

This was a great location for a d.c. trip. We walked everywhere and it couldn't have been easier. The TV in the room was terrible, very 80s, but the rest of the room was great. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat, but there is no convenient dining, other than the hotel restaurants, which are very average.

Great Location

The Holiday Inn - Washington-Capitol was very comfortable, the king size bed was comfy and I liked the fact we were given several different pillows to choose from. The on site restaurant had a great breakfast buffet. But best of all was the location - just a block from the Air & Space Museum and easy walking distance to all the museums and monuments.

Great price, location and staff!

This hotel was the best I've had in quite some time. First off, the staff were very friendly upong check-in. Second, the room was absolutely more than we expected. I honestly thought the decor would be more outdated but it had furniture and fixtures I wish I had in my own home! I left an item in the room and when I called they were very helpful in having it shipped to my home. Overall, I would definitely reccommend this hotel! Oh, it's also close to most everything in D.C. Thank you Holiday Inn, we'll definitely be staying here in the future!

Call ahead to ensure the historical sites are in walking distance. Some things would require a longer walk than others. It all depends on what you want to see.

Amazing Spot in DC

This was a great spot for me and my family to spend four days exploring the Smithsonian museums. When you step out of the hotel you can see the entrance to the Air and Space Museum. L'Enfant Plaza Metro stop was a quick cut through the next door building. We took the train into Union station and everything was easy to navigate and see from arrival to departure. Capitol Bistro had a great brunch but dinner wasn't exceptional. The kids eat free promotion was a great feature though the brunch is not included in that offer, but the buffet was reduced. Great location!

What a great place!!

If you are on the "quiet side," this hotel is the best you can get, especially for the price. Location is the greatest, pool is great, room was great, and staff couldn't have been greater. Other than having to wait to 3:00 pm to check in (already knew that), this place was perfect for a family w/an 8 year old!

Vacation

The Holiday Inn Capital Hill was a great place for our vacation stay. Hotel was close to the Smithsonians and Metro. Within walking distance of all sightseeing in DC. Room was very comfortable, Bedroom Suite was huge and worked perfect for our trip. The front desk staff upon checkin were very nice and friendly. Rooms were quiet at night. You could hear the train outside however.
