    A So So Stay
    The people were rude, room was not the cleanest and does not match what the pictures on line look like. You do have to pay for parking but you can come and go as you please. The beds were hard as a rock and the air conditioner would turn off even if you had the fan on.

    Under Impressed.
    Rather a lack luster facility. Locked down like a prison. Was it for Covid or recent protesters? We enjoyed DC. But would not stay at the HI again. Walls are super thin and noise traveled. Water pressure in the shower was weak. The AC unit would not run below 75 degrees. The parking garage was creepy. The RR tracks run directly behind the hotel so there is the noise from the trains. Was just not impressed with this hotel. We had been in Philly on Friday and in NJ on Saturday. The hotels we stayed in those nights were exceptional.

    Poor customer service.
    Service was ok at best, got locked out of the room with my face mask inside the room. When i asked thevroom service staff for help, they told me to go to the desk for help downstairs. Immediately getting downstairs i was told i wasnt allowed to be in the lobby without a mask and told i had to go outside. I couldnt even get the chance to tell them i needed a new keycard because mine stopped working. Additionally, the room was nice, but once we really looked around, the cleaning prior to us getting there was sub par. There were candy wrappers, bandaids, and other trash throughout the room. Not to mention a lack of parking, its an additional 55 dollars a night if you go through the hotel, but the same parking garage will charge you only 45 a night, and the garage across the street is even cheaper. Parking isnt a big deal, but it wasn't advertised on the website when we booked the room. Overall we are pretty disappointed with our stay at this location.

    Good, clean quiet hotel
    Good, clean, quiet hotel with the Washington Mall within walking distance. Looking forward to when Washington will allow pools and gyms to open up.

    Comfortable bed, pretty quiet.
    The bed was very comfortable. The room was quiet. There is a train that passes infrequently. The paint on the bathroom door was badly chipped and the overnight parking was way too expensive. Those were the only two disappointments.

    y Washington weekend getaway.
    The location was perfect close to all and in walking condition. The staff definitely needs training on manners and making eye contact when speaking to you. The only staff member that deserves a A+ rating was the front desk staff Mr. Marteaco. Extremely polite and very helpful. I found the hotel and the room to be very clean. Definitely would recommend.

    Holiday Inn National Mall
    Holiday Inn - Great Location, you can walk to the DC National Mall - about 2 blocks. That's why I chose this location. It is a very nice hotel that looked a bit run down, probably due to maintenance and staff cutbacks relating to the Deadly Cononavirus outbreak. The hotel seemed basically deserted. The room was fine - Clean and comfortable. Hotel Parking was an additional $53, which I DID NOT expect and was NOT Pleased about, but what can you do. The room rate was pretty good so I guess it balances out. DC has ridiculous virus rules - we ate in the hotel restaurant, the only people in there. The waiter told us to wear our masks even though we were seated, until we got our food. I asked if she could bring our drinks and then could we remove our stupid masks - she said OK. The food took more than a half hour but it was good. There is a McDonalds on the same block which would have been a better choice. All in All, it was a good experience and I would stay there again since the location is really good.
