I could hear exactly what people next door say. Soundproof between rooms are so bad. It is located close to the airport but there is only one restaurant around the hotel. Would no recommend this hotel.

Stayed here on a 2 night business trip. The hotel has dependable service to and from the airport. The shuttle also took us to our job site. The Irish pub had very good service and food. The hotel had some remodeling going on but did not have much of an impact on the lobby, restaurant or rooms. The check in...

This was a comfortable place to stay, nice rooms, friendly staff, with good breakfast, all the basics you need for an overnight stay if you have a flight layover. There are courtesy shuttles to the airport about every 30 minutes, and it's about 5-10 minutes away from the airport.

Caught the free shuttle from Dulles (every 30mins). Quick checkin and room a decent size, clean and good wifi. Early departure the next day so didn't use the room service or have breakfast at the hotel. More than adequate for a good nights, quiet sleep in a comfortable bed.

Stayed one night.....Check in staff not overly welcoming or informative but did their job, . Room looked nicely decorated, but mattress was kind of sagging on one side, and bedding was clean but had little black specks on sheets which turned out to be fluff, but had me scared for a minute. . .. Nothing too bad, and fine for...

I got stuck in Dulles when United's computer malfunctioned last week and I missed my connection. As it was unexpected and here were many others in the same boat I had to quickly arrange lodging or risk sleeping on one of the the airport benches. I saw the flight crew from my Las Vegas boarding a Holiday Inn. The shuttle...

Chose this hotel as a lower cost option inauguration weekend. Much cheaper - it's cheaper because it was out by Dulles rather than closer in. My room was very quiet. Hotel shuttle is free and timely - no more than a 30 minute wait max. On-site restaurant with breakfast buffet and good options for lunch and dinner. I stayed in...

Nice hotel and a very convenient location. We had an early flight so we stayed here and was allowed to keep our car their for $7per day which was cheaper than airport parking.

I stayed in this hotel after my flight from Washington to Charleston was cancelled for one night. I think the hotel is below other Holiday inn hotels standard. Breakfast very poor. Very crowdy early in the morning. No sound insulations in the rooms. If I can avoid it I will not stay here again

Waited maybe 20 minutes for shuttle at airport, approx. 5-8 minute drive to this hotel from IAD. If you have not required a shuttle here before, call hotel when you land and clarify pick up location and expected wait time. There are large airport maps at baggage pick up and signs. Basically, walk from plane to extreme right of baggage...
