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.

This is the go-to place for my family when we visit DC. Great location, walkable to all the sites, we like the friendliness of the staff here, and the rooms are comfy and clean.

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.

I had been staying at other locations when in DC until I saw this property. Great location in center of town but close to residential area with grocery stores etc. Staff was very helpful and has a nice restaurant attached.

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!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chicagovisitor20 Great Staff
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CyanSkies Great Cust. Svc by Jamie and Karolyn!
The minute I checked in the hotel I was warmly greeted by both Jamie and Karolyn! They answered all my questions and even upgraded my room to a suite for being a Gold member. When I wanted to extend my checkout time by 30 mins, Karolyn gave me till 2pm! This allowed me to complete some much needed calls and emails before heading back to the airport.
The room was clean and the rest of the staff here was so extra helpful. If I had to say anything negative it would be that the underground parking is small and overpriced for a night but all was good. I will definitely stay here again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Adam34 Good location if you want to see Washington DC
The Holiday Inn Washington- Central/ White House was a good location for me and my family to stay while touring Washington DC. Only a couple blocks away from the McPherson Metro stop. Room was clean and the staff was friendly. We were visiting durning the 90 degree weather so coming back to a nice cool room was very refreshing. I would bring my family back to stay again.

Impressions of a hotel start and end with the experiences while interacting with its staff. I continue to return to this property because on each occasion my experiences have been outstanding!
It always seems to start with Larry, the door person, as well it should. He is the first employee that a lot of guests encounter and he really sets the table well. He remembers me now, which makes me feel special. This last visit, he was even more cordial and helpful than before.
Then the front desk. The young lady who checked me in and assisted me on matters during the week was terrific! The Holiday Inn brand is fortunate to have a property like this one displaying its name.
A new and yet equally gratifying experience for me this time was the staff in the restaurant. I had my daughter and granddaughter with me and the host went out of his way in serving and pleasing us!
I'll be back, good Lord willing.

We loved the soft beds, fluffy pillows and quiet air conditioning. It's in a convenient location, nice neighborhood to walk in, with great restaurants just a block away. Quiet street, no traffic noise in our room. Would stay there again- the price was right too.

We just returned from a trip to DC and we stayed at your hotel. We had two rooms for 3 nights. I can honestly say I have never met a friendlier more accommodating staff than I met at the Holiday Inn Central-White House. We were met with a big smile from the moment we arrived late on a Thursday night until we left on Sunday morning. Every question was answered with a smile. I felt that while the bathroom was a little small and cramped, it was clean and well stocked. I also felt the walk to both metros was a little further than I had hoped - 6 blocks to one and at least 20 minutes to the other. None the less, I would recommend without hesitation.

My Daughter and I were in DC to help my grand daughter move in to here College Dorm. The location which we selected was ideal for walking to the different museum and Momuments. The staff was always helful in directions to the local areas and to assist with transportation.
The internet was down during our four day stay,however, the staff informed us of the systems was being worked on .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RDU27612 August 17th, 2013 Experience...
Very impressed. Kind and courteous front desk staff. Room was very comfortable. Great views of the DC area. Breakfast- which was included- was delicious! Not a bacon eater, but I have to tell you... the BEST bacon I have ever had- truly. Great location for walking. I did think the overnight parking fee was excessive ($31.00/night) and the parking deck was FULL- cramped- and not climate controlled. I was soaking wet after unloading the car and schlepping my luggage to the elevator foyer- then waiting for what seemed like FOREVER for an elevator to arrive (even though there were four...??). Other than that one piece to the experience, it was great. I would absolutely stay there again.
