From the front desk experience with Eddie to checkout the next evening, the Holiday Inn staff was super hospitable and took care of all our needs. We visited the lounge after we got there and it was quite enjoyable (BBQ Pork Sliders were delicious!). The breakfast buffet had a wide variety fruits and breakfast foods, and the wait staff was...

Tina at the Holiday Inn DC saved me last night. I showed up thinking that my business travel agent booked me a room, but realized, when I went to check-in, that it was not booked. Tina, the front desk agent, told me not to worry, got me a room at a great rate and to top it all off, my...

Friendly, clean, staff is outstanding! From Eddie at the front desk to Iman at the bar and all of the warm and friendly staff whose names I don't know (housekeeping, wait staff), bravo!! Perfectly located so I could walk to the White House in 15 minutes. :)

My girlfriend and I found this hotel after searching from a variety of hotels that were close to the Downtown/Mall area. This hotel was the cheapest stay even with the cost of daily parking. We were hesitant about this hotel because of how cheap it was compared to others, but we were willing to take the chance. WE WERE AMAZED!...

Rooms are clean and location is good, but the nicest past of this hotel is the staff, especially Eddie at the front desk. He always greeted us with a smile at the beginning and end of each day.
