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.

Poor Room Temperature Control, helpful front desk

The air conditioner control was not working hence the room was a little too warm for a summer night in D.C. The hotel though was conveniently located and within a 15 minutes walk to the nearest Dupont Circle Metro. The front desk was especially helpful and took the trouble to go out to the street trying to hail a cab for us in the early hour of the morning heading to the airport.

Nice Short Getaway

The hotel and the staff were nice and the room was comfortable and clean. However, I would have preferred a better view and more amenities in the room, such as a refrigerator.

great central location

This holiday inn is ideally located in the central dc. We did not have any problem getting to places. Food at the restaurant in the lobby floor is terrible. Bad presentation and too salty. Staff in the lobby are horrible. Unfriendly and short tempered. I don't understand why they are working in service providing job. They were easily irritated and gave us attitude.

Great location. Great experience.

This was a really nice hotel... you could tell it was old, but not run down, with a lot of charm. We never made it up to the pool, but I'm sure it was a great view. The room service/cleanliness was amazing and they really did a great job each day. I loved the location too, you are close to several Metro stations and only about 15 min walk from the Smithsonians. I was there on business at NIH, so the Red Line was easy for me, my husband was there for fun and so gallivanted around the city during the day, and we would find a new adventurous place for dinner each night. Plenty of great food options within a 10 min walk, and a Whole Foods close by too. (LOGANtavern, Black's Pearl Dive, and Veranda were our favorites for dining) The staff were always friendly and helpful. The internet was a little slow and frustrating. The only thing that was missing was a fitness center, but to be honest I didn't have time to go to one, and the walking was great exercise :)

GREAT HOTEL

This hotel is located in the heart of the city, you are a short walk away from the white house and the national mall, and very close to great restaurants. The hotel seems fairly new and is very clean. The staff is extremely nice and helpful too.
