I will book a room at this hotel again!! The room was clean, the front desk employed staff that truly were there for their guests. They guided us for food, travel, subway questions... everything. Loved them.

The staff at the front desk was very attentive and helpful, they always had a smile on their face and ready to answer all of my questions. The only thing is that we did not have shampoo and hair rinser for our whole staying, just the day we checked in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adey good, quiet room-helpful front desk
We were able to relax in our comfortable room. The hotel is located near good restaurants and is so close to the White House and Smithsonian Museums. The front desk staff answered our endless questions, arranged for an extra night's stay and were warm and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to one and all,

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by amv2010 Convenient location, average stay
This was a pleasant experience, I enjoyed my stay and really have little negative to say about it. The Holiday Inn is a convenient location and the staff were helpful and attentive. The room was acceptable and comfortable. The only minor thing I was somewhat annoyed by was that they didn't allow any food at the rooftop pool and I was scolded for feeding my toddler son, while when I was leaving I saw a group of guys with a large tub of beers. The sign did say 'No Food' so I was to blame, but it also said 'No intoxicants' and they were allowed to have their beers up there.
The other difficulty I had was physically getting in and out the front door. I had my toddler with me in a stroller and the revolving door was difficult to maneuver. The swing door was locked from the outside and you had to push and hold a button to get it open from the inside. If the staff were there at the door they could have helped me, but they didn't. Even when there were staff around the entrance, I was not helped in getting my stroller in and out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ArtMuseamChaser Convenient and quiet
It was quiet around the hotel, considering how near it is to the White House. I bought foods and wine at a large supermarket close to the hotel. I estimate the hotel will be convenient for personal tourists.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mary1213 Parking, Not really
My stay was fine, until Saturday night when we returned to the hotel to find there was no parking available in the hotel garage. My husband was told to just drive around until he found something. It was after 11PM. He actually drove around for an hour and had to park 4 blocks away. We were there with local friends who we were planning to have a late dinner with. That was not even possible. My husband was not able to join us as we waited for him in a restaurant. He was starving, angry and frustrated.
You can not advertise that you have parking and not really have parking for everyone on a given night! There was no other accommodation offered for our car. We could not leave the keys with anyone to move our car, there was no valet for the overflow. It was awful. This was the spoiler for our entire trip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BuckyGoBlue Awesome Stay - Best Management and Staff I've ever experienced.
We recently stayed here and had a great time. It is by far one of the best IHG properties I've ever stayed at. The hotel staff was incredibly attentive to our needs. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The food in the restaurant was great. The roof top pool was refreshing after touring DC in the hot summer heat. The location was centrally located to 3 metro stations and only about 6 blocks from the White House. There are a number of restaurants, CVS, Whole Foods and 7-eleven around the corner for any additional needs you may have. I would highly recomend this hotel to anyone staying in DC. We will most definitely be back. Thanks to everyone at the HI Washington Central/White House for making our stay totally awesome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1doveinflight nice room accommodating staff
We stayed at this hotel on July 4th and 5th.
The bed and pillows were great. Room was clean. Staff quickly accommodated our request for a microwave and refrigerator (you have to request these they dont necessarily come with the room)
There was cool water flavored with strawberries and peaches in the lobby- very considerate and refreshing after a day of walking in extreme heat
Food at the restaurant was ok , not exceptional.
Overall a very nice stay

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JB1410 Staff are the stars at this hotel
We just came home from a week at this hotel with our adult children and teenage grandchildren. The facility was the perfect choice for our family gathering: great location and reasonable rates. But the best part of this hotel is the staff. To a person (dining room servers, kitchen workers, housekeepers,) everyone always said hello and it was with a smile.
Our meals (all breakfasts and one dinner) in the restaurant were very good and with excellent service.
The only negative is the parking situation. Very small spaces that can be awkward to get in and out of depending on the location. Twice during our stay the garage had no spaces open.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NikkiO Great Location & Even Better Customer Service
My family recently stayed here and we were very happy with our stay. The front desk staff were VERY helpful and accomodating. There was always a "Good morning!" and I felt they went out of their way to make sure my family was happy and comfortable. The only complaint is that the wifi connection was horribly slow. Luckily, we didn't need it often. If you need to do a lot of internet work, this will be the only frustrating part. Otherwise, it was in a wonderful location within walking distance to many attractions, safe neighborhood, and great staff.

Well, the stay was fine. With one exception. My room overlooked the back loading dock and rubbish area. When I opened my window a crack for some fresh air... smells were not good. Noise was not good with dumpster truck or other.
I must have been over the kitchen because when window was closed I did get a grease cooking smell. Friends who visited ... commented on the "fat" smell.
Older front desk personnel were attentive. Some of the younger ones could use some hospitality up grades.
Fine location. Fine attentive bellman. Breakfast is good.
Did not feel like a priority club member during the visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by baygirl Excellent customer service
Great customer service. Unfortunately, the a/c was broken in the dining area so they were using floor blowers to move air. The staff said it had been broken over a week when I got there (I was there another week) and it was quite uncomfortable. I was very disappointed with the quality and taste of all of my dinners but the wait staff were great. The breakfast buffet was quite good! The furniture in the dining room was also VERY worn out, dirty and in need of replacement or recovering. However, I can't say enough about how nice everyone was. I had problems with the TV satellite, but the maintenance staff worked on it until they got it working (4 trips).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WilliamTravler AC unit was broke never compt.
When I stayed the first night I noticed room was warm. Next morning before going out informed hotel service that AC unit wasn't cooling down room still above 76 degrees. Room got up to 79 degrees outside hotel was cooler than actual room. That evening came back I was informed that it was checked and working properly got to room and it was still above 76. I set it to 72 when first arrived. Informed them again that night they said repair guy had came and fixed it I said it was still warm and uncomfortable in room. They didn't ask me if I would like to switch rooms or anything just said we are sorry for the inconvience and let it be. Informed them the next morning that I would never stay there again. I couldn't believe they made us pay $31 for parking and not even have valet. Also I stayed in Hawaii a couple weeks before downtown Waikiki and we had valet for a parking fee for same price. That Saturday morning we went to breakfest and were told we had to pay 16.50 a person. I was told when making reservations breakfast was included. Took front desk 30 minutes to look at my reservations and found out we did already pay for breakfast they were closing at 1030 we got our tickets for meal at 1000 am. I have stayed at Holiday Inns before, and have made reservations on June 24 for Holiday Inn in Florida but I will never stay in DC's Holiday Inn again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Omaha13 Everyone needs Larry, the bellman!
We had a great stay in this hotel. Everyone needs someone as knowledgeable as Larry, the bellman! Larry provides excellent walking directions and service. Thank you, Larry! Also, the free laundry amenities were perfect, as well as the gym. We couldn't rate the food and beverage, as we didn't partake. This hotel is more like a 5-star than most pricier hotels we've stayed in.
