Herndon, Virginia

I have stayed in this hotel (just rebranded as Holiday Inn) numerous times, as it is close to the airport and the hotel shuttle runs every half an hour or so, the ride from the airport is about 15 minutes. The hotel is near a supermarket, in case you forgot to pack something. It is a few blocks from a...

Located a few minutes drive from OR Tambo airport...shuttle provided on the hour both to and fro the hotel. Comfortable with all the necessary basics but lies in the pathway of landing aircraft so tends to be noisy especially the uppermost floor (rooms are not sound-proofed). The aircraft noise seem to subside at around midnight (less flights landing?). The restaurant...

I spent a night in this hotel and it was horrible. There sas no power and it was really frustrating. The hotel needs serious upgrade. The staff need coaching on how to treat guests. No one even offered to help me with my luggage.

This is a nice hotel, but it really need updating. The rooms are very tired. The team though really makes it worth staying here. From the reception to the housekeeping team, they cannot do more for you. Nothing is to much for them to address. The maintenance team is on top of things and despite everything being very old, they...

Stayed in this hotel for five days. It was a nice experience with well furnished rooms, including a bath tub and shower cubicle. Except that the restaurant had a limited menu and there are no restaurants just outside to walk to. Also the reception staff does not recommend walking to the mall nearby for security concerns ! One needs to...

Very beautiful hotel but somewhat hidden by the surrounding structures and vegetation. Hotel management may need to upgrade the signage for the hotel by the highways so that its location is known. It was strange that even some residents of Johannesburg who visited me did not know the location. I ended up at this hotel not by plan but was...

Close to the airport and relatively easy to find, this hotel is useful for a one night stay. The public areas belie tired and worn bedrooms. But it works for what you need and is well priced. Staff Were good and salads in the restaurant can be recommended .
