Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Family Trip
I wil agree that this hotel is in close proximity to the National Mall and Smithsonian, but it is not close to anything else, especially food. After business hours nothing around it is open, even Mcdonalds. You have to ride the metro or take a cab. The two restaurants on site are way over priced for the quality of food. At the 21st amendment grill we waited over 15 mins after asking for water and still did not get it. So we got up and went to the cafe bistro on site which is buffet, and still not that good. This place is maybe ok for business travel, but for family with kids, I would look somewhere around or north of White House. The walls are also super thin, so you hear your neighbors conversation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by agm66 This place to stay downtown
Holiday Inn Washington Capitol just keeps getting better and better. If you're staying downtown near the Capitol or the Mall, this is the place to be. The rooms are quite nice and the lunch and dinner restaurant (21st Amendment) is too. This general area is surprisingly sleepy during the evening hours, but this hotel makes sure all your needs are met and at a reasonable price. A short walk to the Capitol, the Mall and the Metro (L'Enfant Plaza Station) make this a great place to stay. I highly recommend it. For drivers the parking garage is quite large and access to 395-95 is most convenient off of 6th/7th Street.
Enjoy your visit to D.C.!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mlr86 Elegant setting and feel! Walking distance to museums! Perfect location!
This hotel met all of our needs and surpassed many of them. The hotel was within walking distance to all the Smithsonian museums as well as other major attractions. Also the location was clean and didn't feel like you were in a major city. I had heard stories and advice to not stay on the north side of the city and I'm sure glad we choose this hotel on the south side. We would definitely stay here again and recommendation it to anyone planning a trip to the nation's capital.

The buffet was great. The bar/grill service was terrable. 1st time we ate there the food was not right (waited forever and not what we ordered). 2nd time we could not get anyone to wait on us. The bartenders took our order and brought it back to the kitchen.

This is a nice hotel with close proximity to the national mall. The room was very updated, modern and clean. However, we had a huge issue at night that was swept under the rug. Our AC would not stay on at night!! We would wake up sweating and very uncomfortable since the room was stifling. On our last day there, we voiced our concerns AGAIN and finally, someone at front desk recognized that there are motion sensors in the rooms and because of lack of movement (we were sleeping), the AC was not turning on!! No remorse or apologies for our discomfort. I feel this issue should have been resolved well before we ever stayed there since the front desk employee said the motion sensor should have been switched off prior to us staying there. I am still upset that we were tired and grumpy during the day because of an easily resolved issue at night that was not addressed. Also, be well aware that parking in their parking garage is $37/day!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RKH325 Very nice stay
Stayed here for two weeks for a conference and the hotel was easily accessible to the Metro and an easy walk to the National Mall, Smithsonian museums and the Capitol. Staff was very helpful and friendly and I felt at home here during my stay. Restaurant and bar are very nice. Would definately stay here again if my travels take me to DC in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom0946 Family Vacation
Our first family vacation in 3 years. We couldn't be more pleased. The room was clean and comfortable. I've never seen a more friendly and helpful hotel staff. There were several food options available to include two in the hotel and several others within walking distance. You may see some comments about the train. There is a railroad which runs directly next to the hotel. The hotel provides complimentary earplugs. I use my own and didn't find the train to be an issue. The area around the hotel was clean and I found it very pleasant to walk the area. Our son really enjoyed the roof top pool with a great view of the Capitol. If we ever take another trip to Washington D.C. we will stay here again.
