Went to Washington on Business with my husband and stayed at the Holiday Inn near DuPont Circle. We have stayed there before as the location is best for us. The service is very good. Rooms are comfortable and updated. We had a great time with Emon the bartender during happy hour and beyond. Would stay again.

This Holiday Inn could do with a makeover as facilities are pretty worn and room service food from the restaurant is poor quality. What makes up for this is the upbeat and positive attitude of the hotel staff. I received a lovely note from Paula Yatera, the Front Office Manager in relation to the restaurant food, and she really listened!...

We stayed here for several nights, and all of the staff we met were friendly, welcoming, and accommodating to the point of letting us check in several hours early. I was impressed that Rebecca remembered a phone conversation with me from several days prior to our arrival. We enjoyed our stay.

This was a last-minute booking through Hotwire for a conference taking place about fifteen minutes away. The location is fine, but including the words "White House" in the name of the property is a bit deceptive. The hotel was average for its category, but it had the absolute worst wifi of any hotel I've stayed in recently. It was unusable...

I don't usually order room service when I stay at hotels but I had a very good experience with it at this particular location, I was attended by a young fellow named Francisco. He was very nice and friendly when delivering my food. He answered my questions as well, I'd recommend this hotel, their staff is friendly and attentive to...

First impressions count. Jonathon at the Front Desk is polite, respectful and makes you feel at home. This is a great way to get the feel of the place before you get to your room. The room I am in is well laid out, neat and with good amenities. The Holiday Inn looks to be situated just off downtown so...

This place isn't exactly in the heart of teh tourist district but the neighborhood has a flavor all it's own. It was where I needed to be for work and a cheap Uber ride to the monuments and museums if you didn't want to walk. First I want to thank Jason for taking such good care of me when I...
