Holiday Inn Washington DC-Central/White House
Ranked #54 of 141 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2012

We spent two nights here and found the hotel clean and comfortable. Good service and the location was excellent. We could walk to all the monuments and it was around the corner from P street where there were nice restaurants and the whole foods market. Good value considering the prices of Washington hotels and we were given 2 free drinks vouchers which was a very nice touch. Would recommend it to others

My family and I recently stayed at this hotel (March 21-24, 2012). I was quite surprised how clean and spacious the hotel was. The staff was exceptional, they provided us with plenty of literature for places to visit, maps, ect.

Room Tip: If you're simply going to Washington D.C to visit the Capital and all nearby attractions, there...

We spent five nights at this hotel, and were very pleased! The staff were all very accomodating, and the facility was within walking distance to DC subway stops. There is a grocery store (Whole Foods) a very short distance away. The hotel is near embassy row, and the neighborhood was quiet, and seemed quite safe for evening walking excursions.
We will stay here againg when we return to DC in the future!

Went to washngton DC with friends. We got 2 rooms in this hotel. Check in was quick. The room was very typical holiday inn. The best thing about this hotel is its location. Its a good 15 min walk to the white house and close to nearby attractions. If ever we come back to DC, will check in here again.

Good Points: free guest washing machines, cheerful manager, extended checkout (2:30 pm.), great location, two free-drink certificates at the bar.

More Effort Needed: Dirty (see pictures), lacks maintenance (see pictures), no Earth-Friendly policies (e.g. don't wash towels / linens every day), and hit & miss housekeeping.

Prices in DC were very high due to an event during my stay. I prepaid an average of $232 / night for 6 nights here. My room was not vacuumed during that time -- I looked at the same yarn & crumbs all week. All incandescent bulbs in the hallways -- anyone heard of fluorescent here? This was my first stay in years where there was no offering to re-use my towels and linens multiple days. The manager tried to help out, but then the housekeeping staff left ALL my used towels on the floor. I learned to stop making requests from that!

It's nice that they have a gym, but the equipment needs to be maintained -- see the broken cables and workout machines in my pictures. They provided a shoe polish sponge, in-room coffee, and other amenities, but only replenished 3 out of 6 days.

I appreciate that you took the time to comment on your stay with us. I apologize that we did not meet your satisfaction regarding linens in your room. We strive to provide excellent guest service and your feedback is very important to us so that we can make improvements based on what our guests tell us. I have forwarded this post to our housekeeping manager in order to provide our staff with additional training.
We do participate in the Conserving for Tomorrow program to protect the environment through conservation of water and decreased use of detergent. Under this program, we will launder your linens every three days. If you prefer not to participate in this program, there is a door hanger in each room that our guests can hang outside of the door and in that case, linens will be laundered daily.
We have recently purchased new state of the art equipment for our fitness center. You are absolutely correct that one piece of equipment is showing an error code and will be fixed promptly. The cable has been repaired on the weight machine.
Thank you again for your feedback. We hope to see you again soon to show you that we take our guest comments very seriously and make improvements each day to provide excellent accommodations for our guests.
