DC trip

I came to DC for a day trip to see the national mall. It is perfectly located just a block off the mall. The price was right to be able to stay for 2 nights. There is a decent grill/bar in the hotel as well as close coffee shops and fast food if you are hungry. If you are planning to visit the national mall or anything in the area, it's a great place to stay.

Good deal for the price

The Holiday Inn White House was comfortable and affordable. Kids eat free and they have a nice outdoor rooftop pool which is rare in D.C.Casual but with nice amenities in a very business oriented city.

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, nice hotel.

This inexpensive (for DC) hotel is in a great location, 1.5 blocks from the L'Enfant Plaza Metro station, and easy walking distance to most Smithsonian museums. Room was spacious and very clean. Plenty of storage space. Hotel staff were friendly. Very nice restaurant. No wireless internet access, and wired access was slow. It was nioce to have a refrigerator. An inexpensive microwave oven, which would easily fit on top of the refrigerator, would be a nice addition.

very busy but very friendly and helpful

The Holiday Inn Capital was very comfortable and the staff was friendly. They were knowledgable about how to get around and what to see etc. My only concern was there was not shuttle to and from the air port, but the Blue Van was avaliable. The rooms were roomy and has enough space to hang up clothes and enough space to work as needed. The hotel was quiet at night. The dining arrangements were good, once I found them. A good value for the money.

Take the hop on and hop off tour to get used to where everything is. Wear comfortable clothing and good shoes as you do more walking that you think. Do't try to see everything in one day.
