Clean and comfortable room made trip restful, safe and doable.

I took my grandchildren to DC for historical tour. Staff was incredible, especially the Resturant staff. They treated my grands like kings and queens. So very gracious. Love it.

I was very comfortable. I love the decor and the view. I love that it was non-smoking. The staff was very professional.

the staff was nice, the room was spacious and clean, and its close to everything

Nice hotel! Very clean and comfortable. Great location with safe parking. Breakfast Buffet was wonderful and all the staff was pleasant and helpful.

Wasn't the best experience. The hotel staff was mediocre and had a difficult time assisting us, the only saving grace was the manager. He was great.

Stay was fine however housekeeping knocked on our door both days vet early and even attempted to enter. We forgot to put out do not disturb tag but we paid good money for those rooms and didn't appreciate being woken so early on our vacation

Very close to everything, coffe available all the time, nice clean spacious rooms, the restaurant was a great surprise in both quality and price. The staff was very accommodating to our group of 5 adults and 8 children.the roof top pool was a huge plus. The only thing was the parking rules which were a grey area to me. When I did ask if I could take my car out of the garage and bring it back in, the answer was pretty much "that all depends on how lucky you are" as they do not guarantee you a spot , even if you prepay, or at least that is what I understood. Other that the staff was great, managed to book us an extra room on the spot when we had last minute guests.

Me and my family had a great time. I love the beautiful buildings of Washington DC. If you enjoy museum's you will enjoy DC. If you are Military you get priority in Line.

Nice hotel with good location and easy walking distance to several restaurants and Whole Foods.

I stayed at this Holiday Inn the day after the 2016 Elections, and I was greeted by a Trump cut-out in the lobby and Trump bobblehead at the front desk. I found it to be quite jarring that such a political statement was present in the lobby particularly if there were any guests who may have different political views. When I received a call from the front desk to see how the room was, I did express that I found the political material in the lobby to be offensive. Even if it's meant to be playful (e.g., take a picture with the cut-out), or the owner of the hotel is a supporter, I simply expect the places I stay to remain neutral. The front desk representative said he would tell the manager. The next morning, the materials were still prominently positioned in the lobby. I will not be staying at this hotel again.

I very much enjoyed my stay. The customer service and attentiveness was beyond my expectations. The only small issue was the cable in my room was not clear, as some channels I could not even watch. I wish that there were on demand movies or access to movies in some fashion. Would definitely stay there again!

Least expenive hotel I could find in walking distance to conference center but still very expensive. Hotel was older but clean. Walls are very thin so we were able to enjoy the elementary school kids gathering in the hall at 5:30 am for their class trip the capitol and the neighbors wild one night stand.

Friendly staffs and clean room. This hotel located in nice area with many stores.

It was a great hotel. Nice place, cozy room and sofa.

Everytime I go to DC I'm just looking for the basics but not a rat hole. Holiday Inn always works downtown from the White House. Within walking distance of many restaurants and dance clubs and short cab rides to Georgetown. Stayed here for 3 New Years Eve celebrations.

Unfortunately, I thought the hotel was pricey. However, we were booking during a conference time, so that is understandable. On the positive side, the hotel was about a 15 minute walk from the hotel (which was awesome!), and an affordable 10 minute Uber drive anywhere we went in the area!

Parking was 30 a day and a cot costs 15 a day. Never been charged extra for a cot. Had I known of the extra fees would've stayed somewhere else. Location is amazing.

Hotel was clean and in a good location. Its off of a busy street so it was easy to get a cab. Great views of the city! The only bad thing is that parking isn't included, unless you want to valet your car. But we found street parking a couple of blocks away which is free at night and on the weekends
