Okay, but will not stay there again.

THE ROOM AND BATHROOM ARE VERY SMALL. THEY ALSO GAVE US A ROOM WITH THE WORST VIEW EVER. BREAKFAST WAS GOOD BUT PRICY. THE HOTEL HAVE SELF PARKING GARAGE BUT COSTS $31.00 PER DAY.

Good

Good hotel, Good service, friendly staff. Only problem was no continental break first. After you pay over $200.00 per night you expect some break first. Even Motel 6 offers one this days.

All what we needed was within distance from the hotel. Swimming pool on top of the roof was a tip of the cake. My family love it looking the site allover DC

24 Hour Stay in DC

My only complaint was they had scrubbed the carpet in our room and a musty smell hit you when you opened the door. I appreciate the clean carpet but if the room has a musty odor, please do not send guests in there. Other than that, it was a great stay.

It was only OK

We stayed at this hotel on our visit to Washington DC to check out all the sites. It wasn't as close to the attractions as I had hoped. But the Taxi's were always readily available so that helped. The parking is very very cramped. Difficult to get into and out of garage. The elevators were small and often smelled like they had just taken out the trash. I got two room swith kings beds. One room was big and spacious, the other was tiny. NOt sure why the discrepancy. The breakfast buffet was very good. The pool was on the roof but very small and only limited seating. Overall not terrible but I wouldn't stay there again.

Family Vacation

Hotel was dirty, pool closed early 2 nights and was closed on another. Rooftop view from internet was not really how it was. Worst hotel I have stayed at. Not what I expected from a Holiday Inn.

Mall was further away than it looks. May want to take a cab, only 10 dollars from hotel, well worth the money.

clean room and friendly staff.

The room was nice. The only thing missing was a refrigerator. Apparently you need to ask for one and then get charged extra. The elevators are small and very slow. Overall comfortable.

If you are doing the trolley tour, it picks you up in front of the hotel. Wish someone had told me that. My 2 kids and I walked about 3 blocks to pick up a trolley

Vacation in DC

The room was fantastic! Much better than I had expected. Service was slow in the dining room but the food was good. Rooftop pool was open the first day of our stay, but then was closed due to mechanical problems. Would stay here again!

One of the double decker tour bus companies stops right outside the hotel. Great cheap way to see the sites and get around town!
