Once we got settled in everything was great. However, when we arrived on Sat night around 9:00 we were assigned a HORRIBLE room and when I asked to be changed we had to wait until the next day. We were told the hotel was fully booked and because we booked through a third party (travelocity) we got low level room assignment. After being told we could be changed in the morning, we were put off twice until after 2:00. Basically lost a portion of our vacation. Housekeeping was pleasant upon any interaction and restaurant staff were all wonderful. Location is very desirable.

We had some problems with our room. The sink in the bathroom didn’t drain properly and the air unit was so loud it could wake the dead.

The location was excellent. We were able to walk to the Air and Space museum, and we are seniors with limited walking abilities. The restaurants were very convenient, although pricey. We would go back there again.

the staff was courteous and breakfast was good, however, adding a fruit compote to the buffet would be great

We are glad you found the Holiday Inn Capitol to be conveniently located to the National Mall. Thank you for the high score.

5 out of 5
Extremely satisfied with our stay here! The hotel staff was very helpful with accommodating our requests and our room was available early. Very family friendly and comfortable. The room service was very good and we enjoyed the pool very much. Having the garage onsite and being able to self park and get to our park was extremely convenient. And nothing beats the very short work to the National Mall. We would definitely stay here again on a future trip.

This property was close to the national mall, which was our reason for visit! The Front desk employees were very friendly and helpful. Although there are 2 restaurants on site they were not great service or food wise. Staff at both places were rude and mostly ignored you for the better half of the time you were seated. We did have the breakfast buffet for the length of our stay mostly because we had prepaid for this. We ate dinner out! The rooms were a bit dated, however the bed was exceptionally comfortable and the room very spacious.
