We stayed at the Holiday Inn Capitol for two nights. The location of the hotel was perfect. Within walking distance of the Smithsonian and all the Memorials and other attractions. The hotel room was clean. Only complaint I had is the mattress is very hard and therefore didn't sleep well. Also, our room faced the railroad tracks and the train...

Visited shortly before presidential inauguration. Check-in was a breeze and courteous. Front desk was helpful with directions and were given coupons.Rooms were comfortable and housekeeping was on point everyday. Toiletries were great. Restaurant downstairs is a little pricey but not outrageous. Literally a block away from air and space museum/national mall. Will be coming back.

I booked my room during January for a visit of DC in March. Even with a "run of hotel" meaning that I could be stuck anywhere, I was given a room on the ninth floor. The pool is down the hall, three sets of elevators, there are two restaurants in the hotel, and a good size lobby. The beds in...

We stayed at this hotel in a suite for four days over Spring Break 2017 primarily so our 8-year-old son could visit the key sights on the Mall without having to drive around. The location of this hotel is spectacular, its two blocks away from the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. It has parking underground, but it is pricey at...

Stayed here on Spring Break. This hotel is not brand new but is clean and centrally located. There is a Starbucks connected to the hotel as well as CVS and Mcdonalds on the same street. The breakfast buffett is huge and worth enjoying.

The services offered were very good, polite, and we have no issues with that part of this hotel. The "Paper-thin" rooms were a real issue.. at one point in time, the fighting next door and all the cussing was like listening to a RAP song, and this was very uncomfortable - We thought someone was going to get thrown through...

Was very pleased to have chosen this property for our two-night stay earlier this week. Beginning with my first interaction with Corrine at the front desk (very pleasant and accommodating) to the guys at the bellhop station (always cheerful), this was a nice experience.
