Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 305 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good Location, poor otherwise The location of the hotel is good, close to many attractions in Washington D.C. however that is the only good thing I can say about the hotel. The staff were friendly but recognition of Priority status was almost non existent. The food in room service and in the coffee shop tasted like it came out of a can, room service was slow, luckily there was a microwave in the room to reheat the food. The room was extremely noisy, I was on the 3rd floor and when ambulances or police cars passed in the street it sounded as if they were driving through the room. I wouldn't stay there again, and wouldn't recommend it. June 20, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location, but a few questions Overall this stay was very good. The hotel accessible to the metro and plenty of activities. I also feel this property offered a very good value for the location. I had a couple of specific issues with the service we received however. We ate and had drinks at the hotel bar once, and did not make that mistake again. The bartender/waitress was the worst I have ever interacted with in a IHG brand hotel. She was rude the entire meal, and acted as if everything we asked for inconvenienced her. My daughters macaroni was cold when received it so she took it back to the kitchen and microwaved it. When she brought it out again it looked disgusting and old, but was smoking hot. The cleaning service was also not what I have come to expect at IHG brand hotels. We had dirty (empty) dishes left in our room along with other common cleaning items bypassed. Not to mention our last night during this stay we returned after a long day of sightseeing just before 4PM and our room was not serviced. I had to call the front desk and asked for it to be cleaned, and they told be the staff had already went home but I could have a different room. A few minutes later I received a call from another person stating that someone would be up to clean my room. So we had to leave after being gone all day so it could be cleaned. June 19, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not the best I was not real impressed with the staff. The gentleman at the front desk was not very welcoming. He was not rude, but definitely acted like we were an interruption to what he was doing. The room was clean but smelled like burnt food! The location was good. The desk help the next day was very helpful and had great suggestions for dinner. Would not recommend eating breakfast there. Again, rude staff and not so good food. Overall, I would not recommend this hotel. Very hot and cold staff. Bar staff VERY rude! June 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HOLIDAY INN WASHINGTON CENTRAL I hand stayed in holiday inn washington central for three nights it is in conviniet location June 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by new jersey staff was extremely friendly and helpful, hotel and rooms were clean ...rooms should have refridgerator and they didnt.....only big downside was we had kids that ate free, the portion of the kids chicken breast meal wasnt enough to feed a 2 year old let alone 9 & 10 year olds...kids eat free is an incentive to eat there, so they lost our business eating there again for other meals ..but the food was very good June 16, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average Average for a Holiday Inn. I have stayed in nicer Holiday Inn Express with free parking and breakfast. June 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location Close to my meeting building; one block from Whole Foods, very friendly bartender, front desk went out of their way to help me, good secure feeling, very comfortable. June 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Proximity to everything Very wonderful reception and food. The rooms looked a bit old but in all, it was a fantastic stay June 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good value for the Washington Area I stayed at the other Holiday Inn property near the Smithsonian and Department of Transportation. This hotel is by far the better of the two. This hotel is also a little older property; however, it has a better room configuration. The location close to DuPont Circle is a great plus, with close access to many great restaurants and Whole Food within walking distance. There is a secure parking garage which is convenience for us with the rental car. The drive to the Capitol Mall area is relatively simple and easy. The staff members really try hard to work with you. Overall, my wife and I like this property a great deal. June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn Central - DC Great Hotel and easy access to all your needs in DC June 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good location. Great location. Close to P Street where there are other cafes and shops. I felt safe and comfortable walking in the area. The streets are tree lined, flowered, and have charming brownstone apartments. Lots of people out walking. Bikes and joggers. Lots of dog walkers. The doorman watched over the entrance. You have to have a hotel key to access the elevators. I liked that. The underground parking is a little crowded and costly, but to me it was worth not having to worry about not only finding a parking spot, but making sure my car was safe. The subway is close by and was no problem to use. Taxis are easy to find. The people in this city are very friendly. Everyone I asked information from or directions from would stop and help me ... with a smile. I would stay here again. June 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great service Excellent service and a great hotel to stay, Front Desk was very warm and hospitable, the hotel is centrally loacated June 1, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by so so hotel, not the best holiday inn -ii've stayed at this holiday inn many times, but this was most disappointing stay -elevators did not work properly, resulting in 10 minute wait to go up and had to take stairs down 9 flights - a/c system did not work properly: temp was either 65 degrees with full blast fan or else turned off entirely May 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value and location We love the location to the metro and sights. Two blocks from Whole Food, Starbucks, and hip restaurants just off "P" Street. The staff try hard to please. The hotel is busy and the lobby area is narrow and tight. The restaurant at breakfast time can be crowded the buffet has a good variate menu. Overall, the service is good. This is an old building so maintenance is on going; one of the 3 elevators was out of service during our two day stay. I recommend the Washington-Central/White House to anyone visiting the city. May 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfort and convenience I was extremely satisfied with the comfort and cleanliness of the room. We were pleasantly surprised to find out at checkin that we were upgraded to a suite. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. There was a huge breakfast buffet as well as a menu to order from which we really appreciated. The location of the hotel was perfect. Located just a block from Whole Foods, CVS, and many restaurants and pubs. Also just a few blocks from the Metro. I would love to visit DC again and I would definitely stay here if and when I do. May 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service the most gracious lady and she knows who she is went out of her way to make everything special thanks May 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Upgraded Suite was great and excellent service from front desk staff The front desk staff were very respectful, knowledgeable, accommodating, & sympathetic to our needs when the airline lost our luggage for 2 days. This hotel is only a short walk to Whole Foods and great restaurants. May 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient and Friendly Awesome location for playing and touring in DC as well as being near meetings of all kinds. Staff were super nice. Wished we had had time to check out the roof top pool. Furniture in the room was definitely worn, though the mattress was fine and while the room overall was perfectly clean, it was ready for a deep clean of the corners, if you care about those things. May 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pros/Cons Maintenance staff seemed to be more concerned about my stay and comfort than anyone else. Room was clean and nice, The bed was very comfortable. This facility seems to be in a pretty good area of down. Didn't see much police presence or activity. This was a plus. Parking isn't the best and rather expensive for what you receive. Restaurant had good food, but the value of the food was a little much. The room description said there was a refrigerator in the room, however if it was I have yet to find it. Overall a good place and I would stay there again. April 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location with quality service We recently visited Washington DC with our 9 year old grandson, and were very happy we stayed at this location. It was handy to the Metro, and other bus services, which made it easy to get around. I cannot say enough about the service we received. The front desk personnel were very friendly, and helped us with directions to where we would be going for the day. We ate breakfast and dinner each day in your restaurant, and the service from all the help in there was exceptional. Everyone made sure we had everything we needed, and the food was wonderful. We would recommend this hotel to friends and family. Thank you for a great stay. April 26, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Front Desk Staff was cold and callous. The location is great but the staff is cold and uncaring. Parking is listed as an amenity but in reality does not exisit. They charge you for a parking space which says it comes with in and out privileges but when you return the space has been given away, and you are left to find your own street paking after being charged. No effort was made to honor and adjoining room request made three weeks in advance. The front desk had a take it or leave attitude becasue we are completly boooked. All of the other staff I encountered were very helpful and considerate it was only the front desk that was uncaring and unfeeling. April 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 4 day stay in Washington DC Great stay and service, always love this location and the hotel is nice and clean. I will definitely be back. April 17, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great service I had a few items that needed attention and the staff took care of things promptly. April 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by problems with the room key. only bad thing was that the key to the room every day is dropped and we had to go back down to reception to that will configure. a young lady in reception was very rude when my sister went to ask that will configure the key and she replied very curtly, that the room was not in her name; should be more friendly; the rest of the staff was excellent. April 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not up to Holiday Inn Standards I was not greeted at check-in as a rewards member. I was also not informed about the wireless internet as is usual in Holiday inns. I had to ask at the desk after I had checked in. The drains in the bathroom ran very slowly and the water backed up. . The room was smaller than usual and did not have a refrigerator. Also no breakfast was included in the room rate. A great location but not up to Holiday Inn standards. I will try a Hilton the next time in Washington. April 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great proximity to much of D.C. Our stay at this Holiday Inn afforded us the opportunity to walk or bike to the points that we were interested in. The staff was very helpful in giving us suggestions for dining, transportation, etc. April 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent service at every level Excellent service from the front door to the front desk. From housekeeping to food service. Facilities were entirely satisfactory, nothing special but no concerns or negatives. April 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trouble checking in without pre-booking. Found room availability online while en route to hotel so we opted to wait to book it until we got to the front desk. Upon arrival we were told that the hotel was booked without them even checking. We went back to our vehicle and checked online again. Room was still available so we had to book it from our phone. Once we had a confirmation number we were allowed to check in. We had no other complains aside from our check in experience. April 11, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and excellent service. The hotel was in a good location with very comfortable rooms. The staff was awesome, from the front desk to the restaurant. Would definitely stay there again. April 10, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cherry Hill Run For being listed in the hotel list for the Cherry Hill Credit Union 10 mile run, this hotel did not provide information to us about the event or where to go and there was no type of continental breakfast or food that would have been indicative of being a hotel that was being used by runners. I have stayed at several holiday inn hotels while attending marathons and other types of related events (in many different cities) and they have always been prepared in ensuring that runners have food early in the morning (available in lobby or related area) as a form of customer service. The restaurant did not even open until 6:30 in the morning at this place and races usually start at 7:00 in the mornings. For the money paid at this hotel, it was not worth the stay. I actually had two rooms. I understand that Washington is a high cost area; but so is Italy and they had a feast for the customers in the Holiday inn hotel I was not even recognized as an IHG member.
