Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larrie33 Friendly service; nice breakfast
I especially like Sylvie's friendly welcoming personal greeting at the front desk, even though it's late at night. The staff is very responsive to requests and makes a significant effort to be helpful.
Breakfast has a nice variety of choices- eggs, meat, biscuits (I like the pancake machine!). I stay there every month on a business trip; it's a convenient location for my meetings. Service sets this hotel apart.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mntanmama Good value
We enjoy staying at the HI Express because the beds and pillows are the absolute best! You can truly get a good night's sleep! We felt this particular hotel needed a little "refreshing" in that the carpet and decor seemed a little "shop worn". The staff was very friendly, and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was good (although the sausage was not, which is not typical of our experience). We would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by t66george Wonderful customer service
This was our second stay at this hotel. We stay here when we visit our son and have no complaints. Customer service is excellent. Room was clean. Beds and pillows were ok but that's always a matter of preference. Plenty of hot water for the shower and great water pressure as well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PastorPam Front Desk Staff was great
The front desk staff was great but the cleaning staff left a bit to be desired. We would leave the hotel each day around 10 am and when we returned around 10 at night I would have to go to the desk to ask for coffee, tea and face cloths because none had been left in our room. I didn't even bother to ask for shampoo or soap we just went ahead and bought some. This is not the usual standard for Holiday Inn Express from all my previous experiences.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DCG22 Anastasia did a great job
Anastasia did a great job recommending places to eat and directions to my appointment the next day. The northern VA, Washington DC area is a new sales territory for me and she idd a great job making me feel at home and giving directions. I will make this hotel a regular part of my stays when I am in the Northern VA Washington DC area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Momdad4 We will be back.
In location, staff friendliness and comfort...and a great breakfast,
this location worked great for us.
It is located close to Route 66 so you can get to D.C. and the other towns around easily (depending on traffic flow).
The staff ALL greeted us each time we encountered them. We like that.
The rooms have the appointments you would need including
Wi-Fi (hooked in easily).
We have three adult children living close by, so we will be back and we will stay at this Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roscoe1980 Good experience
I appreciate the value of Holiday Inn and always enjoy my experience there. This Holiday Inn was somewhat older and the room quite small. There was no privacy as the sink area was in the room itself and right as you enter the room. This was a functional concern.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LindaNC overall good
Everything was very nice, however the one complaint I had is the towels were not soft or fluffy at all. They made me think of the gym at school! Please select a better grade of towels!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by akw007runner Good business stay
My second time at this property and I it was very pleasant. My only knock on this place was the long check in and the fact that I did not receive my bonus points offered to IHG members like I was supposed to on my account.
I hope this can be fixed because I would like to receive my 500 points.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by amarine Great guest services and comfortable bed
The only downside to the stay was that despite ordering a non-smoking room, there was a smell of lingering, long-standing smoker's room. The staff did offer to move me, but for the short stay and overwhelming fatigue I felt upon arrival, I stayed. It was fine and only noticed it each time I entered the room from the hallway or the steamy shower.

The staff was nice as could be. Their knowledge of the Metro System helped this Southern country boy feel good about moving around Washington.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by XsteveX Poor service and bad smell
We only spent one night at this hotel, the staff was rude
I am a platinum member and did not expect that at all
The room had a very bad smell and we did not have enough towels.
I also booked the room with a King bed and upon arrival they told me that wasnt available
Overall a very bad experience and not planning on staying there again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by j1260 Very Clean and comfortable
For visiting family, this is a very convenient location. The staff is always accommodating and sincerely friendly. The room was clean (including the bathroom), quiet and very comfortable. The breakfast is typical, yet pretty decent. The dining area is also very clean. Have no reservations about coming back to this facility and highly recommend it.

Spent 5 nights here on business in Arlington. Easy drive to the Metro. Not one problem - clean-updated and friendly staff.
A no brainier compared to the prices in DC

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by johnjohnjohnjohn Our stay
The stay was good and I would stay here again as there were no major issues. I felt the price was reasonable and appreciated the reduced rate for a holiday.
the breakfast area was always clean and well attended (but the right side of the toaster sure gave people fits).
The bed itself was comfortable but the pillows should have been retired some time ago.
the sink drain stopper would not seal the water in the sink so it would drain.
the shower dripped
the internet cable plastic tab is worn and kept falling out of the computer jack.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 78mack78 Awesome Bed and nice room.
We stayed the night here while in town. The bed was one of the most comfortable in a long time!! Room was nice and clean. Only two reasons for not giving 5 stars was there were no washclothes and one of the wall outlets were hanging out of the wall posing a huge fire hazard. Otherwise, highly recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JackVO Not quite like most Hol Inn Expresses but...
Let's be fair, this Holiday Inn Express isn't as nice as most of the chain. (And I say this having stayed in 20 more of them around the USA.) There's no pool for starters, and the public areas are much smaller than in most I've used.
The rooms are smaller, too, and, though clean, show their age a bit..
But other than that, and considering it's good proximity to greater DC, it's still a good choice.
Staff are good, and the breakfast is fine as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dee1234 Very good value for money!
I really liked this HI. From the reception where the welcome was warm and genuine. Then, with the informations and indications that where given to me to answer my needs of directions for the next day etc. And finally for the good comfort of the room. My only regret, the fridge didn't have a freezer..
