As good a Holiday Inn as anywhere else in the USA. Fantastic location. For travelers on a budget this is the best option. We flew into Reagan Airport and took the metro for 15 minutes to get to the hotel. The museum mall is less then a block North. There is a McDonald's and PVC Pharmacy/Convenience store less than a...

Thank you for reviewing our hotel and telling others about our location, rooms, staff and free internet. Yes, our pool is outdoors on our roof, but we do extend our pool opening and closing based on the weather. Many outdoor pools are only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. We try our best to work with mother nature and...

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a road trip from Chicago to Washington DC. Bought the breakfast package for the stay as breakfast in the hotel is not cheap. The package also gives you 50% off parking (normally $37 per night) with unlimited ins and outs! Room clean and tidy, reasonable size with fridge and large flat...

We stayed here for three nights. The location is great, with the hotel a block away from the National Mall. Although rooms are small, the rooms are clean and you've got everything you need for a good night's sleep. We could cool down in the swimming pool. There's a few restaurants in the hotel but no restaurants close by in...

I appreciate you writing a review about our hotel and for staying with us. I know you had many hotels to choose from. Our hotel is indeed in a quiet, safe part of town, close (one block) to the National Mall. I hope you will visit us again.

Just returned from our second visit to Washington and stayed here both times. The hotel is clean, rooms a great size and staff so helpful. Only drawback is the noise from the train tracks which can be really intrusive in the early hours. Starbucks, bar and bistro on site which was really handy but be prepared for city/hotel prices. Only...

Thank you for staying with us again. I really appreciate it and for sharing your experience with others. I am curious as to how many you had in your party, $40 does seem high for just a few. I wish you would have asked for a manager, so we could have checked to see if an error had been made....

It sounds as if you had a great time in the hotel and DC. There is so much to see and do here in our Nation's Capitol. It takes a couple of weeks to see the monuments and visit all of the museums. Plus, the best thing of all is that most of the things to do here is free....

I appreciate you staying with us for such a long visit. It sounds as if you were extremely busy seeing and visiting the sites in DC. We have changed our breakfast beverages due to comments we have received from our guests. Now with a breakfast coupon, you can get both; orange juice and coffee with your meal.

In reading your review, it appears that you booked an advanced purchase reservation. These reservations requires full payment upon booking your reservation. These reservations also are the lowest rates the hotel has available, one of the advantages of the rate. I'm sorry there was an emergency in your family.

Nice hotel, great location for visiting the Washington, D.C. Attractions. But at $300+ per nigh for a holiday inn at the end of the season we won't be staying again. There are better hotels for the same money.

Washington, DC is a major hotel market. When occupancy is high in the city, room rates adjust accordingly. Both August and September 2014, have been extremely busy months for the city. I do appreciate you staying with us. Please don't rule us out in the future.
