    The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable! The room was very nice.

    The air conditioning unit was loud when the compressor was running. The room rate was high for a Holiday Inn, but this area charges high weekday rates. It's cheaper on the weekends.

    My family stayed at this hotel for our trip to DC and we were very pleased. The room was large enough, clean and the staff at the hotel very friendly. The hotel is only a couple of blocks from the metro so we were in DC in less than 20 minutes every day. We would definitely stay here again.

    The one drawback is that the hotel does not have an indoor pool. We came in April and it was much too cool for the outdoor pool, which was closed. However the price of this hotel was excellent and we were in the room so little that I can't say I would stay elsewhere, or pay more, just for a pool.

    I liked the location to Clarendon shopping and the closeness to a Metro stop. I also liked the key-operated elevator for safety.

    The hotel staff were friendly and helpful wiht local information. The shuttle service to local shopping was very useful.

    The decor is aging a bit. The in-room AC was noisy.

    Decent, filling but inexpensive breakfast buffet. Quiet. Basic amenities. Staff was polite and sought to be helpful.

    1) The wired internet service never worked--at least for my laptop. I work extensively with computers and should not have had a problem connecting. After trying a dozen times, I gave up. 2) Wifi was knocked out one evening due to flooding. Bad weather contributed. Staff did give me free access to 60 minutes or so of the business center computers, which still had Internet access. 3) A bigger problem: The heating / cooling system only functioned when the fan was set to "high", which was quite noisy. I asked that this be fixed the morning after I arrived. Three days later, it had not been fixed (may not have been possible with someone in the room). 4) Bathroom sink was partly clogged--slow removal of water. 5) Room gets musty on wet days (not good for my allergies). It's a bit difficult to air out, even after the air clears up outside because windows won't open and the knob for the external vent on the air system was broken off.

    Good food: breakfast, lunch, dinner as well (for additional money), convenient pillows and bed

    We enjoyed the outdoor swimming pool. Arlington and Washington, DC are very hot in the summer and it was nice to take a dip in the pool after sightseeing. We were also impressed with the security at the hotel.

    convenient location; responsive staff; free shuttle

    congestion; parking issue

    Shuttle service, coupons kiosk and friendliness of staff.

  • Older travelers

    Convenience to Metro and nsf.

    1) The receipt the hotel gave us showed a different price structure than we received from Booked.net. This makes it difficult to get reimbursement for hotel expenses during working days --- the two days when the fee was greatest. The price is set too high for a hotel that is undergoing such inconvenient constructions and repair: 2) A jackhammer made a lot of noise outside our window during business hours, making it hard for my wife and me to sleep in during the vacation part of our stay. 3) The plumbing was shut down from 11 PM on two nights, around the time I usually take a shower.

    The staff members are amazing! Super friendly and helpful. Location of the hotel is great, and there are great restaurants within walking distance.

    Room service at the hotel is pathetic. Food was disgusting, cold and oily. And the prices are astronomical. Also, you have to pay for parking.
