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.

Great Location

The purpose for our trip was to sightsee as much as possible in just a few days. The location was within walking distance of most areas and the Metro could take you around the D.C. area for some of the places not close. We only had one meal in the Hotel restaurant but it was excellent. Overall we were very pleased.

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.

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.

Very family friendly

We came with a grandchild to see our nation's capital city. It was great to be within walking distance of much of the attraction's And in the afternoon or evening the swimming pool on the roof was the best part of the vacation for our grandchild. The lifeguard attendant was always there and brought out floaters, etc. specific for age, besides taking care of all the landscaping.

Best Location in DC National Mall Area

The Holiday Inn WASHINGTON-CAPITOL was extremely comfortable -- we arrived before the official check-in time and as the room was ready they let us check-in 2 hours ahead of time. This is the 2nd time I have stayed here and the rooms are very clean, comfortable and spacious and the staff is very helpful. The hotel has a Starbucks attached to it which is a life saver and there is a CVS right next to it and a McDonalds and Quiznos also right there. The National Air and Space museum is only one block away and I don't think there is any other good hotel so close to the National Mall area. The Metro is also just a block or 2 away. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in DC to see the sights.
