Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TAS007 Spacious rooms.
I was delighted by the size of the bedroom and the bathroom. It was very spacious. And I like the fact they have spare toothpaste/toothbrush, razor and shaving creaming upon request. Other toiletries included shampoo/conditioner/lotion, shower cap, and a make-up remover towlet. Nice stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Loralynnb Close to Air and Space
We picked this hotel because it is so close to the Air and Space museum. It was only a two block walk. We arrived late with tired kids and the front desk staff was quick and very helpful. I do not like to stay above the third floor and they quickly moved our room from the ninth floor to the second floor. The kids ate free and the food was good. All in all a pleasent place to stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sastl Freight train outside my window
I arrived and checked in to my 6th floor room for a 5 day business trip. I was initially concerned about getting a room directly opposite the only elevator due to the noise but thought I would endure. The room had a strange gash cut diagonally in the ceiling from one corner to the other, the entire length of the room. I arrived late after a long cross-country flight and went to bed. Hours later I was awakened by a freight train screeching by just outside my window, horns and all! Amazing that they would give such a room to a business traveler, or anyone for that matter. The staff was pleasant about changing my room the next day but why put me through that? It wasn't cheap either. The coffee pot did not work and neither did the heat. Never again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Buckeye54 Stay at HI Capital for FS test
I was at your Hotel based on "the closest place to stay" while taking the Foreign Service test. This why I graded my experience as a 1 to 2 star
1. The faucet in the bathroom would not shut off, I had to reach up underneath the sink and turn the valve to turn the water off.
2. Excessive noise from trains, helicopters, etc
3. I requested a 5:30am wake up call and the phone rang at 5 am instead, I certainly could have used the extra sleep before the test.
4. I showed the front clerk the address where I needed to be the following morning and she said "I don't know, but the cab driver outside would". The Dept of State Annex where the FSO test is conducted is attached to your hotel!!!
I did not realize this until the cab driver drove around the block and charged me $15 for the ride.
Never again will I stay at this Holiday Inn,

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Theodore Convenient to Washington DC sights.
This hotel is convenient to Smithsonian and Capitol Hill. No good restaurants in the vicinity, though. Must take Metro to other locations for good food. Staff is responsive and courteous. Rooms comfortable, but not always quiet. Restaurant is good, salad bar very good. The hotel should do more for its Platinum rewards members There is no complimentary happy hour or breakfast for members. Most other chains do provide such amenities to members.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grandma7 Clean comfortable and excellent customer service
From the concierge to the chef to the environmental techs all were courtious. The room was clean the bed comfortable. Noise level was acceptable except when the band was in the lounge it sounded as if they were in the room next door. I was there from Feb. 14 - Feb 16th.
Location was perfect for travel to and from my business destination and for sightseeing. Many small shops nearby.
Great location to public transportation. I will stay here again when visiting Washington DC

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kumakun Great hotel
Very close to the Capitol and the Mall (three minutes walk to Air and Space Museum). Convenient to the Yellow Line (straight ride into Reagan National Airport). Staff was friendly and helpful. Very satisfied with my stay. Did not try the hotel restaurant or cafe, so can't comment on the food and beverage.

This was a nice hotel, large room, great food and fantastic location near museums and monuments! I can recommend it! However, ask for a room not facing the railway.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JobMan Conveniently located
Room was average especially for the price. Did not eat in the restaurant but did have dinner one night in the bar. It was good for bar food. The service in the bar was very slow. Air Conditioner/ Furnish was very noisy - finally shut it off during the night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kfreeman Very convenient location
Right next to L'Efante Plaza metro
Room was very clean (non-smoking 2 full size beds)
Not enough channels available in HD (couldn't find Comcast Sportsnet to watch the CAPS game either)
Next time I'm in the area, I'm going to stay at the Holiday Inn Alexandria-SW Eisenhower. Their rooms are nicer, FREE PARKING, have alot of HD channels, right next to metro and their guest internet is very fast
All in all it was a good experience though

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clint50 Great for business and pleasure
Really good hotel that is excellently placed for business (quick cab, reasonable walk, and metro access to center) and pleasure (walk to Capitol, Smithsonian, The Mall, etc) and with a convenient underground car park. Easy access out to South and to Route 50 for the beltway for exits north and east.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Two visiting Aussies
Have stayed here twice. The location is great, and having good car parking is a big plus as we found DC more of a driving city compared to other US cities.
Rooms are very clean and having king or two queen beds was a great option which we needed after a very busy day.
Having a laundry open 24 hours was a godsend compared to NYC where the laundry charges per piece were prohibitively expensive.
The only negative was the breakfast which including tip came up to about $40 for 2, and because it was not a busy morning the hot food was a bit tired, so overall we were disappointed with breakfast.
Other than that, it was a great stay and we will be back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PILOTKEN Will not stay here again
I was very disappointed with my recent stay at the Holiday Inn - Capitol. We reserved two rooms. We tried to check-in at 2:00pm and was told it would be one hour befoe our two rooms were ready. We returned one hour later and was informed only one room was ready. The rooms are dated and in poor condition. On the second night we had to change one of the rooms due to a burst pipe and flooding in the room and hallway. Not a very nice experience. We will not return to this property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tito24 Excellent service, room property,
Everything was excellent from the begining till the end. Room, food, service, location were fantastic.
The train passage in the middle of the night was noisy and wake up us twice the first night but it was ok since the service was excellent thanks to the front desk clerk Rose. She is really great we had a warm welcome from her and she did the check in in french wich was cool since we have been away from home for the past 2 weeks.
I recommand this hotel definitly

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kenhawkey Noisy room
Had to come back twice before room was ready for check-in after the check-in time.
Sound of running water in pipes was prominent from early in the morning.
Maids were slack with conditioner and coffee during out stay even though we left tips.
Good location for the Smithsonian.
Terrible water pressure in the shower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bucky140 Nice big room and comfortable bed!!
Stayed one night on December 27th while in transit. Was greatly impressed with the front desk staff for their warm welcoming professional nature. Check-in process fast and easy! Front desk staff helpful with directions and infomation as was all the staff! Room was big clean and comfortable, exactly what i needed after a long days travel. Sure there was some renovations happening, but this didn't hinder me gettiing in and out of the hotel! Workmen were polite and helpfull. One carried my big bag over the tarp they had layed out over the floor which was greatly appreciated! Check out was fast and easy! Even though it was only a short stay... it was a enjoyable stay! Would highly recommend this hotel!

the Holiday Inn Capitol-is a well run,hotel in a convenient location, near the air and space museum and they have parking-secure parking. The staff is extremely helpful and the room was great. This time we didnt use the restaurant but have in the past. Sometimes they offer family or holiday packages. We plan to stay at the hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John86 Christmas in Washington
I took the family to Washington for the Christmas holidays. My son lives in SW but does not have room at his apartment for our group of four adults and two children. We stayed at the nearby HI on C Street and were very happy with the experience - nice rooms, an overall friendly and well informed staff, and a nice bar for relaxing (especially liked the quesedillas). The kids loved the breakfast and I appreciated the attentiveness of the restarant staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel for its great location and level of efficiency. The train can be a bit noisy in the wee hours of the morning, but it did not bother us excessively.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sandy57 Fabulous location and great service
We loved our 2 night stay here. Within walking distance to the National Mall and other attractions. Trolley tours will pick up and drop you off at the door. Staff was very friendly and extremely competent. Food in the various on-site restaurants good. Beds and pillows very comfortable. Very good 24/7 fitness facility.
I want to give a huge shout-out to the staff who found a large package of medications and mail that we left in the room and overnight couriered it to our current location. Thanks!!!!
Would definitely stay here again!
