Good Value

I thought the accommodations were very satisfactory for the price. For a few extra blocks outside the main city area it was well worth the savings. Staff was friendly the room was not large but clean and comfortable. Service was good.

Ok in a pinch

The hotel staff was wonderfull but the room was not as clean as it should have been for the price paid. One bedspread had many large ink stains on it..the bathroom had mold in the shower and the tub was not clean. The breakfast was very good and speedy, however the dinner menu was lacking choices and the food was over cooked. Stayed 4 nights...went elsewhere for dinner last night. The room size and layout were fine.

WHAT A BELL MAN

THE HOTEL WAS IN A VERY NICE PART OF TOWN. THE POOL WAS ON THE ROOF AND IT WAS TO COLD TO BE ABLE TO USE IT. THE BELL MAN WAS SO HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY. THE FOOD WAS GOOD AND THEY GAVE YOU A LOT FOR YOUR MONEY.

was great for first time in DC trip with 11 year old boy- my heart

it was great because of how nice and helpful the staff are. There isn't too much distance in any direction to decent restaurants, Metro and Wholefoods. Was nice as long as not spending too much time in the room....No flat screens or extra space - more older and cozy. Non-pretentious, simple and traditional.

A Novice Tourist's Delight

Arrival was pleasant and friendly. Room check-in took less than five minutes. Front desk personnel and concierge were helpful for the entire six days of my stay with every question I had. My room was clean, comfortable, quiet and restful after long day's of touring. Room service was efficient and affordable and were the dining facilities. The location is wonderful and the neighborhood a great place to walk around on a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning. I would recommend the Holiday Inn Central/ White House to couples, families or singles who wish to have a very comfortable stay with a professional staff at a reasonable price.

Comfortable and close

The room was a bit small, and the beds was comfortably padded, but too small for two adults in the same bed. the first two days we received refreshing aromatheraphy soaps, but towards the end we received the hotel brand(not as refreshing).The air conditioner was a bit noisey, but comfortable. The hotel was within walking distance from a great variety of quaint dining restaurants.

Very Professional Staff

The Holiday Inn was very nice, it had a very good location in Washington, DC. I thought that the staff was very professional and very helpful in answering any questions we had. The pool on the rooftop was beautiful, my children had a very good time swimming. The restaraunt in the hotel had very good food and at a reasonable price.(my kids ate free) I would recommend this hotel to anyone with or without children for when they plan a visit to Washington, DC.

All of the museums were within 1 mile of walking, or you could take the metro for a fair price.

staff were friendly and helpful

The resturant was great. Kids ate for free or reasonable price. Hotel was clean and safe. We were withing walking distance of downtown D.C. The staff were helpful with directions and maps of the area. Parking was tight and a little pricey.

Friendly staff

There was some confusion regarding my reservation when we arrived at the hotel. Due to the inconvenience the manager offered us breakfast and parking. Additionally, efforts were made to assure that the issue was addressed subsequent to the first night. The hotel staff were always helpful and friendly. The room was comfortable and we were very happy with the location.

Very family friendly

This was the first time my family and I visited Washington DC. We were very satisfied with our hotel. The staff was very friendly. We were given so much information on the city. Our hotel room was very spacious and the location was very good. I would highly recommend this hotel.
