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 -...

I insist on staying here when visiting the Capitol. Great location. Friendly staff. Our room met our needs and was clean. Having a parking garage in basement a big advantage. Nice view. I will stay here again when next in town.

Great location one block south of Air and Space Museum. Clean, comfortable rooms. Walking distance of all venues on National Mall. Buffet breakfast to start your day and Starbucks onsite. Seasonal roof top pool. Treadmills available and small weight room. I would definitely recommend this property.

Hotel is clean and comfy bed and pillows. Buffett breakfast had lots of choices. Food was decent. Basically 1 block to air and space at the mall. The major disadvantage is it's mostly an office area. Limited restaurant dinner options. There is a Starbucks in the lobby which is great, but for dinner not many meal options except at hotel....

Stayed at Holiday Inn on a recent business trip. Hotel was excellent! Centrally located. Walking distance to monuments, capitol, etc. There is a restaurant inside the hotel, which was very convenient! I liked this place! I am thinking about taking the Fam to D.C. In 2017 and this hotel will be definitely at the top of my list!
