Well it is a Holiday Inn so I didn't expect soft beds or valet parking and you should not either. I was impressed on arrival with the room layout and as I was voicing that to my wife a train rolled by and drowned out my voice. And the trains continued well into the night and early in the morning....

We recently spent two nights in this hotel. It is conveniently located approximately 500 feet from the air and space museum. Self serve parking is available on site. We were allowed to park before check in time and left our car until 3 PM on our departure day, giving us the opportunity to enjoy the museums on arrival and departure...

I spent a lot of time searching for an affordable hotel near the mall for a DC sightseeing trip. The location of the hotel was perfect. We were able to walk or rent bikes to visit all of the monuments and museums. There are two restaurants that are affordable and provide a variety of options. The hotel room was clean...

I stayed here for four night in February 2017. The only problem with the room was that it was in a corner of the hotel facing the Amtrak railway. You could hear the train when it passed by, but it never woke me up. Other than Starbucks, McDonalds and Quizno's, there are not too many restaurants near by, but there...

A few unexpected things: bed mattresses were harder than I would've liked unfortunately. And FEMA was in the basement of the building. (Doesn't really have any bearing on anything. I just thought it was random and interesting). Otherwise, amazing location to all the popular sites: Washington Monument, Capitol, Smithsonian Museums, etc.! It was two blocks away from a Metro stop....

This hotel is located in a good location, especially if you're there for attractions. A few places are in walking distance, while others may not be in walking distance, per-say, but still in close range. You can take an Uber and get to most places for under $10. The room was clean and was a decent amount of space. I...
