This hotel is in a great location only two blocks always from the air and space museum. The rooms were modern spacious and clean. Very comfortable King bed. And we really liked having a Starbucks in the hotel for eating breakfast and getting coffee!

Was in town for a museum visit and was able to walk to the Museum on 14th st. from the hotel. During the warmer months this walk will be a breeze. However, I can see how the walk would be a little less pleasurable the colder it is outside... in which case you can just Uber. The hotel was very...

This was a very convenient location which is the only reason I rate this hotel very good. We walked and used the Bike Share and Metro with ease from this location. Customer service was okay. Hotel was clean. The two restaurants in the hotel were not appealing and had bad reviews so we did not eat there.

Valued guest, Thank you for staying with us during your visit to our nation's capital.

Maybe you are thinking as I did that this place looks pretty much like a Westin or similar brand, and you should it give a try. It's not really. The ventilation in the room was outrageously noisy, especially the a/c (which is activated if you lower the thermostat even a single degree). The desk is a complete, useless mystery: It's...

This hotel is very clean and perfectly located for a visit to all of Washington's major attractions. Located near the national air and space museum virtually all of the places we wished to visit were within walking distance - from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial and the White House. Strongly recommend using the bike rental facilities with sites located...

One of the worst InterContinental owned properties I have ever stayed at. Do yourself a favor and stay at another IHG property like the Crowne Plaza. One of the greatest selling points of Holiday Inns is there consistency. This property has no consistency at all. Included in what they don't tell you is paying $40 a night to park your...
