Friendly Hotel

The Holiday Inn Capital was very comfortable. It is in a great location, close to Reagan National Airport and many of the attractions in Washington, DC. We had a wonderful visit there in November. The rates were great. Four of us shared a room and it was large enough for us all. I would stay there again.

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.

Unbeatable location

They were wonderful and even allowed me to check in early as I arrived at 11:30 a.m. The location was amazing near all the museums. I even forgot my toothbrush and they gave me one. The room service menu was excellent and very well priced, since I was working I ate in my room.

Really liked this hotel

Holiday Inn Capitol is a AWESOME place to stay--especially if this is your first time to D.C.. Very easy walking access to National Mall and Capitol--central and safe location. Starbucks access from lobby--hotel restaurant gave generous portions and was good food. Our room/bathroom was plain and a little dated BUT was very clean and the beds were comfortable--that's all we cared about. Hotel staff was pleasant. Definetly would stay here again. Only downside--not many eating choices around here but we either walked about 10-12 minutes up 7th or 9th street to one of the letter street area or grabbed a $7 cab.

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!

Great location

Staff was very nice. Room was comfortable and clean. We picked this hotel due to location all the museums and National Mall. Also very close to a metro stop. We would stay there again hands down.

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.

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.
