Good Location

For the location, you cannot beat it. Coming from living in DC, this location is the best, it is located centrally to everything that I needed to do. The first day, I had a maint. man just walk into my hotel room after one knock and he didn't even announce himself, and walked in. He then walked out. (he used his key and came in). Other than that, the annoying part is having the doors locked at 11pm and having to buzz (there was a lack of people at the front desk) The night people were kind of rude asking me "Do you stay here" and giving me a look when I said yes. Other than that.. I give it 3 stars.

Nice venue, and good food

I staid in the hotel because I was working in the Dupont Circle area. The staff were excellent! friendly, helpful, and always available. The restaurant was also very good. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. My only negative comment is that I could hear a little bit of TV noise from the room next to mine. Not a major issue, but if you are a very light sleeper, it might affect you.

Pleasure trip

Room no 510 in we checked was full of rats . Even moving on bed . When we complained they refund one day charges and for one night shifted to other room. So beware of rats when you go there. Bad experience .

Good Location & Priced Right

The room was clean and hotel was well maintained. The bed was very comfortable. It's about an eight block walk to the Washington Mall. There is no continental breakfast or happy hour included. With a mini fridge in the room we purchased snacks & beverages at the Whole Foods store a couple blocks away on P St. There is a Subway & Cosi down 15th heading towards the mall for meals on a budget. The staff was friendly & helpful. Parking is $31.50 per nite. Overall it is a nice place & I would recommend it to my friends.

Get more bang for your buck eating at the many restaurants within walking distance. Breakfasts for $4 to $5 at Cosi -vs- $12 at the hotel.

Not up to expectations

Our room 910 was small due to elevator shaft taking up a large area, also very noisy due to talking, they could not move us right away b/c 100% sold out. The hotel was very populated and caused very slow elevator service. The front desk was polite, but showed little concern that I felt let down related to the stay. My thought is why ask how my stay was when they really don't care. I would not recommend staying at the Holiday Inn Capital. Also it is really too far to walk to the museums although

Who knew it was this good?

I had an excellent stay at the Holiday Inn. I lived in the Logan Circle neighborhood and was delighted to go back to the wonderful Studio Theatre, Tortilla Coast and Logan Tavern. The hotel staff were welcoming. The free coffee and water in the lobby was an unexpected pleasure and the rooftop pool was a delight.

The Studio Theatre is one of the best regional theatres on the East Coast. Small theatres bring the audience into the performance. Its a delight!
