In DC and can't always get home at night. I wondered into this hotel and JW helped me out the wednesday before thanksgiving. I hooked me up with the late check out which was perfect because I was tired and needed to stretch out on a nice, big bed, watch some mindless T.V. and catch a few Zs before work... More

This is the second time I stay at the hotel and I have always been well looked after. I especially want to highlight the kindness of Eddie who in English or Spanish always has a very kind treatment. Best regards.

Hotel is nice. One elevator is not working currently so the morning rush to get down to lobby can take a little longer than usual. The bartender (Ron Clark) is great. The food choices are limited but the quality of food is decent.

I visit Washington once a year for an annual conference and always stay at the Holiday Inn Central/White House. The amazing thing is bartender Ron Clark remembers me by name EVERY year, asks about my family by name, and remembers my choice of wine. What a great, quant little bar right off the lobby. Couldn't ask for a better hospitality... More

I enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn Central when I'm traveling to DC for work. It's very convenient, the neighborhood is fun and when I'm tired, the bartender Ron Clark hands me a glass of wine and places my burger order with a friendly smile and easy manner.

Staff friendly, room nice and modern with comfortable bed. Room also equipped with a pod-style coffee machine, which was very much appreciated. However, our room was facing a rather busy road and the windows did not seem to do a good job keeping the noise out. We were awoken early in the morning by traffic. We would stay again, but... More

Excellent hotel! Moderately priced, conveniently located, easy walk to restaurants, shopping. Nice rooms with view of DC, small fridge, safe and even a Keueig coffee machine!! Bath had two sinks - one in bath and one in dressing area. On-site parking also a plus! Friendly and helpful staff. This was not our first visit and won't be our last!!

The entire staff I interacted with was great, but the service from Jason and Fuad (front desk) and Ron and Emon (bar) was above and beyond expectation. They all listened to my needs and remembered my preferences, be it room type or drink at the bar. The rooms (multiple stays for business) were very nice, beds were comfortable, and everything...
