I enjoyed a cold beer and warm conversation each night at happy hour. The hotel bartender, Mr. Ron Clark, graciously served drinks to locals, tourists, and foreign travels at his bar counter. Thank you for your friendly service on my vacation to D.C.

The Staff here were amazing! Especially Carlota, who told us about herself and gave a meaningful conversation and gave great suggestions for breakfast. The staff also called Taxis for us, which was 👍👍👍!

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Central- Staff were very welcoming. Went to the bar and was welcomed by Ron. Ron gave us advice how to get to places. We were tired and he ordered us a light meal and made sure we were happy. He is a credit to the Holiday Inn and we cannot thank him enough for his...

I was in DC for a 2 day conference and the Holiday Inn was a great option. I was a little bit removed from the museums and a decent walk to everything, but was in a great atmosphere as it is by all the Embassies. A little tricky to get to if you are taking the metro.

Stayed there four nights during my little boys spring break. Got semi snowed in one day but being from the south it was fun to see some white stuff. Not a bad walk to the mall museum area about a mile. Parking is $31 a night. Rooms have a refrigerator and a Keurig with coffee, tea and hot cocoa. Only...

The level of customer service here is outstanding! Jonathan was very kind and friendly to my friends. He was quick and happy to help my friends and myself with what we needed. He was very engaging and is clearly an asset to the hotel. I'd definitely recommend staying!!

I travel a lot. Most days of the week I am out of the country. I really appreciate a warm comfortable place to lay my head. This Holiday Inn goes beyond that. It feels like home, or at least, the home of a beloved family member. I think the bartender is most responsible for that homey feeling. Ron Clark brings...

Staff were all amazing and responsive to my needs. Ron Clark the bartender makes some killer cocktails! Expensive laundry service but they do offer free washing machine and dryers and washing machine soap, if you have the time to do your own laundry. Will stay there again.

Is very close to restaurants and shops. Is a small hotel but clean and the service is very friendly. The food is good. Right now they are doing improvements and is a little bit messy but is perfect to stay here.
