I traveled to washington dc from July 8- July 13 for a sightseeing/concert trip. I booked this hotel from travelocity.com after looking at reviews from different websites. It was about 15 miles south of downtown DC. There was free parking and a Metro station about a block down the street. The hotel was clean and quiet. There is a bar/lounge...

My first time here back in 1994, the highways and bypasses were being built around this Holiday Inn, so it was noisy every day with workers and trucks starting at 6AM with the drilling and noise from the work trucks. My family had planned not to come back to this Holiday Inn. Now, that almost 20 years had passed, we...

We are very sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience during your stay with us and we do understand that our hotel is not for everyone.

Greetings True, Your invaluable feedback is so appreciated on our end! Yes, the summers do get very warm here, especially in the lobby and the air flow with the two doors that open on each side of the hotel make it difficult for the cool air to stay in one place. It has been an ongoing battle simply due to...

We came to DC with our two children for a full week for family vacation. We did not rent a car so having access to the Metro was of key importance. The hotel was priced much lower than most in the area and the Metro was only a few blocks away. It is a little shocking when you pull up...
