This is our second time staying at this hotel. We love that we can park once, then walk the tourist section all week. Pool is small but good for the kids to take a break from walking. CLOSE to the Smithsonian, Air and Space Museum. Starbucks on site ;-)

This is my 3rd stay at this hotel. Great location. It is close to the National Mall, the Capital Building and museums. Room was clean and well kept. There was a Keurig coffee machine in the room and a small frig. The only thing I wish they add to the rooms is a microwave. The staff are always very helpful....

Thank you so much to the Holiday Inn folks! You saw marchers desperate to find restrooms and you opened your doors and hearts to us. A shout out to Sheri and her co-worker who manned the restroom doors and allowed women to use the men's room. And a special shout out to the beautiful, kind, sweet and professional women's room...

We stayed at this hotel in April 2016. I was travelling with two teenagers and had visited several states in USA. We stayed in two 5 star hotels along our travels that did not even compare to Holiday Inn. The rooms were immaculate. We were within walking distance of the museums. After check out we had a long wait for...

We loved that this hotel was close to our state capital. Our rooms were cleaned and serviced early every day, our food service was on time and we had plenty extras available in the Holiday Inn Store. On Inauguration Day when we returned Holiday Inn gave us each an inauguration gift pack. Thank You Holiday Inn. We highly recommend this...

There are lots of positives to note about this hotel: proximity to metro, proximity to museums, and proximity to Federal buildings. But the only close proximity issue I had was the proximity of the Virginia Railroad Express (VRE) track only because of the train horn. The front desk personnel was very nice and offered up great advice on local eateries....

The location of the hotel was great. We were a short walk away from the smithsonian air and space museum. The beds and rooms were comfortable. They did skip cleaning our room one day saying we had a do not disturb sign (which was true, but we have removed it by 9am). There is a Starbucks just off reception -...
