Good

The hotel was of medium quality. The staff was kind and courteous. I wish there were more channels on the television and softer beds. The beds weren't bad but softer would be nice :)

Safe, quiet, comfy

My father was having a couple of procedures done at Washington MEdstar and we needed a place to stay close by as he was required to be AT the hospital by 6 AM. and we live out in Loudoun County, VA. This hotel was only 3 miles from the hospital and a real steal for DC at $150 a night. They surprised us on check in, however, with a parking fee of $30/night! We expressed our dismay, mentioning that we would be in the room less than 24hours, and the very nice and compassionate front desk person waived the fee! NOW THAT"S CUSTOMER SERVICE> she didn't have to do that, but it was clear we were not in the city for fun. We had a small dinner in the hotel restaurant, where the food was good, but the service was slow. The room was comfy, but had no refrigerator or microwave. We didn't need them, and they ay have been available by asking, just be aware. No indoor pool or hot tub, but I bet the rooftop pool is AMAZING in the summer. The hospital is about 20 minutes away; despite the short distance, it is a convoluted route. Totally worth it , though, to be in a safe neighborhood. We didn't get to partake of the free breakfast, but the coffe was GOOD, andthey had international creamers and a large selection of teas available, as well.

my stay at the Holiday Inn

The room was too small and they kept telling me that i had an upgrade.Two full size beds was considered an upgrade? They don't have queen size beds in their suites.

Good Location

For the location, you cannot beat it. Coming from living in DC, this location is the best, it is located centrally to everything that I needed to do. The first day, I had a maint. man just walk into my hotel room after one knock and he didn't even announce himself, and walked in. He then walked out. (he used his key and came in). Other than that, the annoying part is having the doors locked at 11pm and having to buzz (there was a lack of people at the front desk) The night people were kind of rude asking me "Do you stay here" and giving me a look when I said yes. Other than that.. I give it 3 stars.

Nice venue, and good food

I staid in the hotel because I was working in the Dupont Circle area. The staff were excellent! friendly, helpful, and always available. The restaurant was also very good. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. My only negative comment is that I could hear a little bit of TV noise from the room next to mine. Not a major issue, but if you are a very light sleeper, it might affect you.
