Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SBVA Location, Price, Comfort - A Winner
This is not a luxury hotel but the value in location, price, and comfort make this a great choice for business or tourist travelers. We have stayed here many times and find this property consistently good. Housekeeping service is sometimes a little less than perfect. Some aspects of carpeting and furnishings could use repair. Having a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker are a big plus. Overall the staff are professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. Grocery, pharmacy, coffee shops, and a variety of restaurants are all easy walking distance. We can comfortably walk with our suitcases from the McPherson Square metro station. All of DuPont Circle is also a moderate, safe walk.

It's a really good hotel in a perfect position for visiting Washington. Both the room and the other areas are really clean and in good conditions. Staff is really prepared and kind. Suggested restaurant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kjell Excellent service and great value
This hotel is an excellent value. The staff is fantastic and the location is very convenient.
At a third of the price at hotels I usually stay at in D.C., I am definitely coming back!

This hotel has a great front desk staff. They were able to help me with everything I needed and provided lots of information on transportation around DC. The room was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed our stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nostay69 waste of points
The stay was very poor. I called for fresh towels 3x with no success. The water was only warm. Would never heat up. I called the front desk about my tv remote regarding dead batteries and nobody responded. I had to go to cvs to by fresh batteries for remote. I asked for a taxi and I actually had to hail my own. Was just a terrible experience. Wish I never wasted my points. I would never recommend a holiday inn in or around the dc area. .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EscalonKid Great location
We were in walking distance of all the sites we wanted to see, even though a cab driver told us it was too far to walk. The accommodations were comfortable.
The buffet was overly pricey and a box of cereal was $4. That would not deter my staying again, just not recommending the buffet.
Our rowdy neighbors hooted and hollered until about 3:30 AM and we were unable to sleep for the noise. Then they tried to open the adjoining room doors.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Allexiod In the centre of Washington
The hotel is situated in a close proximity to all the benefits of official and underground locations.
Directly in between of 14-th and 15-th streets it gave me access to my business and leisure points.
The room upgrade for me as IHG-Platinum member was excellent: nice spacious living room and bedroom, and a balcony along too living spaces.
The view and stay were great.
I would thank all the people at reception for a nice welcome and assistance in making documents for my accountant with some specific demands.
That was great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by horsewoman123 loved it.
what a wonderful hotel in a great location with a friendly and helpful staff. what I REALLY liked besides the quality breakfast buffet, was the fact that I felt so secure. you had to use your room key to get on the elevator and use the downstairs ladies room. that was nice. the staff was very friendly. I will return .

When I checked in I was given a room that smelled of smoke. Staff immediately placed me in a different room and took care of the luggage move and all other details. I would stay here again.

I was very pleased with my stay. Located conveniently in the heart of DC I was able to get to the meetings, metro and do all I needed to do. The price was great and the staff was awesome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tsipporahjorah loved being here
the staff was friendly, efficient, and accessible. the rooms were very nice and the location was wonderful. there was always someone out front to help with arrival, getting a cab or anything else. I really appreciate the fellow who was working in the lobby when i managed to get myself sort of stuck in the revolving door; he got me right out!
I was very very pleased at the value of these rooms, the price was amazing for being so close to everything. I could walk to the mall or the zoo.
Great place and next time I'm in DC I'll be here for sure.

Came to stay for my daughters college open houses in DC. The room was EXCELLENT, clean and comfortable. The service during the day was excellent with the front desk personnel couteous and helpful. Did experience some loud partygoers in the hallways late at night but would not blame that on the hotel. I would definitely stay here in the future if returning to DC!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ginmartini Great Room, Great Stay
Greeted by a very friendly group of staff at the reception area. A different, yet equally fun and friendly group of staff was there to see me off.
Room upgrade was marvelous. The room really was really well laid out. Great work space, two TV's, mini fridge, two bathrooms. There were plenty of towels and a robe.
Good location, not great, but good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RichardinDC Not what I expected.
I had experienced the Sunday brunch which was excellent but had never stayed in a hotel room. While the location was excellent, I was underwhelmed by the room, especially compared to the newer Holiday Inns I stayed in the following nights in Knoxville, TN and Maumelle, AK. The internet was not working in the room and two of the three elevators were out of service. The room was much more expensive than the other two Holiday Inns (which is understandable since it was in downtown DC) but not near as nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gingerbread3333 A great place to stay in Washington
We spent 4 nights at the Holiday inn Central and were most impressed with the staff, their helpfulness and courteousness. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast excellent. The location of the hotel for a visitor to Washington was ideal for walking to the White House, museums etc.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to any Washington visitors.

Room was across from elevator (I'm a Reward's Club Member). Carpet was wet by the air conditioner. Took two days for maintenance to attend to it. When maintenance did come, they turned off the a/c, on a hot day, and put a fan on the wet carpet. Later that day, I returned to the room and nothing had changed. The front desk said that it would be fixed by that afternoon. When I returned to the room in the afternoon, nothing had changed. Eventually moved to another hot, more expensive room. Overall lack of attention and concern by the staff.

It is located at very easy place to reach down town.
At the same time, it is very calm and good scenery and I could enjoy jogging around hotel. I would like to strongly recommend this hotel when you stay in Washington.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by roamer51 received more than expected
Very impressed with the bed and pillows. . Six block walk to the Metro, easy in the morning and several places to grab coffee+ along the way , a bit slower after a full day of sightseeing. While it wasn't a problem for me, the in room safe was locked and not able to be used. I also thought that there was a dvd player in the room , which it didn't. Nice, young area and plenty of restaurants in any direction I would walk. If you're looking for a good laugh, go to the Capital Steps show on Friday or Saturday . It's well worth the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RonRin Surprisingly pleased!
The staff was courteous, and the breakfast buffet was really good (it also helped having someone there to prepare omelets!). Regarding the room; the pillows were nice and firm! The air controls were a bit tough to manage but worked as it should. I'll always have a beef with Holiday Inn towels. There are barely enough and the quality of them is not the greatest.
But, all things considered, this was a pleasant experience and was worth the price paid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark5903 Good place to stay in DC
My recent stay was the first in that Holiday Inn and I have not be disappointed. From the arrival all has been pleasant and the only little inconvenience was swiftly addressed and solved by the very helpful and competent team.
The room was pretty large for a hotel downtown in a major city.
Even the restaurant of the hotel was good. Well it is not a "3 etoiles" but I had dinner twice - and 3 breakfasts - and it was really good. The choice is very reasonable and fares are reasonable.
The noise insulation in the room was very good.
I'll certainly consider that place when I go back to DC.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brenda46 Newly redecorated
We spent 3 nights recently in a regular king room. Since the last time , the rooms have been re-done very tastefully and for the most part comfortably. Love the clean white comforter and big, fluffly pillows. Comfortable armchair.The room seemed crowded when you add in the large TV stand/dresser and desk. In the bath there was no vanity with counter for storing bath articles. Pedestal sink is pretty, but not practical for travelers. The breakfast buffet is excellent with food for every appetite. All employees were congenial and helpful. Convenient location - only a couple blocks from the new 14th street corridor which is is now loaded with restaurants and shops,definitely more upscale.Next time we visit our son, we'll be back. The prices were better than any of the nearby hotels. Also, on-site parking at a reasonable price..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RhondaY Very decent stay!
Holiday Inn Central was great!! The location was perfect, easy of access to various attractions in the city. The room was comfortable, spacious. The bathroom was adequate, a little small. You'll have to request a refrigerator at this hotel for an additional fee. The parking lot was accessed through a one-way in/out alley that was father tight. The garage was extremely tight. I drive a small luxury SUV and had to backup at least 4-5 times to back into the parking space. Again, there's one way in/out of the garage, so I found myself beeping the horn before every turn to ensure no head-on collisions. Despite the parking garage and access, I would stay again. I walked a block to a street full of restaurants (The Commissary was GREAT for breakfast), and nail salon (TruBlue) and TD Bank. I would definitely recommend this hotel!!

The staff were outstanding, from initial check in to departure. I did not use food service so I really can't comment. The room was fine and I did appreciate that the internet was included, at least for me. I really find it offensive to pay a significant price for a hotel room and then get charged extra to use the Wi-Fi.
