Holiday Inn Washington-Capitol

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our stay at this hotel was terrific. We were impressed with the helpfulness of all personnel, ranging from front desk to restaurants to bell captains. They made our stay comfortable and without stress. The room and bathroom were comfortable, well appointed and maintained.. I would have liked a reading chair in the room, but hey, you can't have everything!

If you're not going to rent a car and plan to spend most of your time at the National Mall this is a great place to stay. Fly into and out of Reagan since it's only a quick $2 metro trip to a metro station that is only 2 blocks from the hotel which is itself only 2-3 blocks from the Mall. And the food trucks that cover the Mall area start up a block away. It's just extremely convenient. It's very easy to break up your day into a morning excursion, a mid-day break, and then a return afternoon trip.

Great location to walk to he museums on the Capitol Mall!

Bed very hard. But great location and super friendly staff!

Recommend it to any 1st time traveler to DC Room, staff, restaurant, value all excellent. Next to Starbucks & 1 block from McDonalds. Short walk to Capital Hill, National Mall & Metro Transit.

We really enjoyed staying in this hotel. The breakfast was good (and free for kids!) and Starbucks was conveniently located in the building! The hotel was clean and very close to the National Mall, Chinatown and a ton of great restaurants were a 15 minute walk away! The room, however, felt very cramped. Other than that, this place was great.

Cherry, the front desk receptionist was exceptionally helpful and nice. Breakfast was great. My daughter had fun - and thats important

The location is ideal for work and sightseeing. What you gain in location is overcome by noise. It is very close to a train stop and tracks. You will have the train noise all night. Ask for a room on the C St side if you stay there. That is less noise Breakfest is great and reasonable priced. Starbuck is right next door Staff was very pleasant.

The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. The rooms were clean and well maintained. We ate at both restaurants, waiters were very friendly, the food was average. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to DC. Had some great amenities such as HD TV.

Nice, safe hotel location and perfect for visiting the National Mall.

While in town I needed to take the Metro both for work and for leisure time. This hotel is an excellent option for those on public transportation, as it was a 2-minute walk from the L'Enfant Station. Ideal.

The room was beautiful and clean. We had an issue with the ac during the night.

Wanted a hotel close to dc landmarks. Hotel was clean, staff was friendly. Enjoyed our stay.

Could not have been a better base to go to the national mall area. Just blocks away from the air and space museum.

Met every expectation for price. Staff friendly and helpful. Close enough that we walked to US Capitol, White House, museums, and Verizon Center. Planned route so we never walked more than .4 miles between sites. Didn't use public transportation.

Great experience! Parking is a little expensive $37.00, but other than that it was a pleasant stay.

We paid $400 a night to stay at s hotel I working stay free at!! The train was right outside our window...no sleep! Do not stay here ever!!

Everything was nice. Would have liked a better view than the Department of Education building & the train station. Asked at check in for a nice view & was told there wasn't one surrounded by taller buildings. Breakfast buffet was nice.

The hotel staff and accommodations were great! The location was excellent and very close to the monuments and museums. We walked to everything very easily and took a morning run along the mall! There are very few restaurants in the area so we had to order room service and had dinner delivered a few times. It was very convenient to have a full service Starbucks in the lobby! That helped us greatly in the morning.
