    A little disapointed.
    We were there during the 1st part of the covid 19. They basically shut us off from all their services. Not good when you are traveling. But I do understand we are covering new territory.Still, as a traveler, you are pretty dependent on the hotel for some basic services.

    Miserably firm mattresses.
    The mattresses are so firm they feel like you’re sleeping on concrete. This was probably the most miserable sleeping I’ve ever had while on vacation. The hotel, while clean, feels dated and needs updating in the rooms. The wall paper was peeling in the restroom in room 944 and the toilet leaked water all over the floor. The staff was extremely friendly.

    Family trip
    Family trip with kids. Hotel was nice slightly small room no microwave but has a coffee maker and refrigerator in the room. The location allows us to walk to all the popular monuments and museum and it has many places to eat around. On the weekends there is not many restaurants near the hotel open but the hotel has a restaurant inside but is a little pricey. The housekeeper was excellent and left us enough toiletries for the family and kept the room nice and clean. I have no complaints and was pleased with the service and location. It’s not a luxurious place but is was great for our family.

    Good location in DC
    Good location, with convenient (if expensive) parking under the hotel. Hotel was clean and comfortable.

    Fair 4.0
    It is a Holiday Inn
    The location is very convenient and the staff is great. The issue was the elevator on the side of the building we used was very "finicky" and also the underlying "cleanliness" seems a bit funky below the more recently updated facades. The beds were not amazingly comfortable and I couldn't really get a good nights rest like at other hotels.

    The room was clean and service was friendly.... when we got there the computer was done and we came two hours later to check in. Breakfast was a little disappointed. Most of the food was overcook....

    Very Good 8.0
    Thoroughly enjoyed our week-end in Washington DC. Our room was comfortable and the hotel was centrally located to the things we wanted to see during our visit. We were not happy to be blindsided at check-in with a $53/night parking fee to use the hotel garage. But there really was no other viable option...
