Very nice business traveler hotel.
If the sound of trains bother you, it may not be a good choice or you may be able to recommend a room away from the tracks.
Nice rooftop pool, however it was crowded with kids during my business visit.

This is a great location for touring the museums of DC. As other reviews have stated, there is not a lot of dining close to this hotel, but if you will go through the Law School Building next to the hotel you will find several choices for quick dining also in the FEMA building next door are a Quizznos and McDonalds. Food at the Holiday Inn is very good, a little pricey, but you are in DC and things are going to be a little higher. It is close to the Metro and taxis were always available. One of our rooms was on the "train" side and was not a problem as we were on the 8th floor. I would ask for the garden side if it is available as our other rooms was very quiet.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found it to be very comfortable with great staff.
The only downside was the train tracks were outside the window and early every morning we were woken up by the trains sounding their horns, I could have asked to be moved to a different room but decided against it as the room we were in was superb.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by R U Serious! Booking specifics are not reliable
Talked to two different Holiday Inn reps to verify that my room had a pull-out-sofa. When I arrived they had put me in a room that was not big enough for even a roll away. They did not offer to change anything until I started searching for a different hotel. They offered my extra blankets and pillows. I couldn't believe they expected my son to sleep on the floor for 11 nights! Very disappointed!

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. We liked everything about our stay. The hotel is in a wonderful location. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. PLUS, the room was ready when we arrived from the train station at noon...what a wonderful treat.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NCinDC All good except AC
The primary goal of staying at a hotel is to sleep. However, our AC was on a motion sensor so at 3 am I woke up sweating and for the rest of the morning had to get up every 30 minutes to activate the AC. That morning I called the front desk to ask them to fix it. That night, same thing. I was so exhausted that I went directly to the front desk and asked them for a room change, which they were willing to do but could not guarantee that the next room wouldn't have the same problem. So they said they would send a technician up to fix it, which he did. When I asked how he changed it, he said they are not allowed to tell us. This is so messed up! I am all for saving energy but get those key cards that turn the power on and off when people enter and leave a room. The motion sensing AC and no way to open the window forces guests to be trapped in an airless room unless they want to wave their arms around all night.
Liked the pool and exercise room, breakfast buffet was fine, and rooms were clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by justtraveling2 great hotel choice
This hotel is a great choice! It is clean and well maintained; the beds are comfortable. We were very pleased with every detail in the room. The staff was efficient and helpful. The restaurants in the hotel were a good value and the food was excellent; but was disappointed with the food we ordered from their list of local take out restaurants. Keep in mind the train
