“Nice Room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

Room was nicely appointed. Satff was friendly and affable. During the night, children were loud and running in the hallway. Was annoying but I did not make a complaint. Restaurant... Oh No! Tried a burger at dinner time. Service was very good but the food - underwhelming. In the morning went for breakfast for the convenience. Decided to have the buffet ($15.99) Was not told there was only about 5 or 10 minutes left, so that came as a surprise. Wasn't particularly good anyway, so I basically wasted that money. I would stay here again, but would avoid the restaurant completely!

Hotel is clean and well run. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rate we booked included breakfast which was a full buffet with lots of choices. Room we were given had a powder room and a full bathroom. Bonus for 2 people trying to get ready in the morning or before going out for dinner. Only negative about the hotel was that the elevators are old and slow. I'd stay here again.

A top to bottom renovation has revitalized this property since my previous stay. A newly furnished contemporary lobby, bar/lounge and updated Avenue Cafe made for a most pleasurable experience. The new rooms have free WIFI, comfortable beds, flat screen TVs, excellent and plentiful lighting, large work desks--also a sofa in many rooms--and open views. The baths have message shower heads and spa products as well as lots of thick towels.

I have enjoyed the seasonal rooftop pool with great views and deck--a relaxing plus in summer.

The staff are most friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about goings on around town. The excellent breakfast buffet includes healthy options such as fresh melons, strawberries and blueberries as well as tasty sausages, bacon and delicious home made pastries. I must also compliment the perfectly prepared, generous made to order omelets.

The location cannot be beat. Whole Foods is right around the corner. Metro transportation and The White House are each a 5 minute walk as are all the trendy new restaurants and shopping on 14th Street.

For its renovation, service, amenities and location, I look forward to my next stay at Holiday Inn Central White House!

Room Tip: Rooms on the rear are quiet and those on the 8th and 9th floors have panoramic views up to the Natio...

This hotel is located in one of the best parts of the city. Busy during the day and quiet at night. Walking distance to the White House. Excellent shopping near by. Check out the massive Whole Foods near by. Clean rooms, good service, Weak WIFI signal in rooms but strong in lobby. Underground parking scary very small and if you drive a large vehilce/SUV, good luck is all I can say. People were nice enough. Overall a strong 4 out of 5.

Not the most fancy hotel but good enough for a fair price. Very good location in a nice residential neighbourhood with nice restaurants around. Very kind personnel. Good restaurant. Free internet. Comfortable rooms with somehow small bathrooms. Recommendable if you get a good rate.

Stayed for 3 nights, would stay again. Clean, the room is a good size, bathroom is on the small side but it's good enough. Location is good - not too long to walk to the White House / Smithsonian. Take a walk down P Street, a block NW, for dinner at Logan Tavern.

After you enter in the lobby you can feel a little bit worried. Usually the front desk is nicer than rooms but not here.
The room is spacious, with king size bed and big flat screen. Bathroom is maybe a bit small but there are a bat tube inside which I prefer more than shower.
The furniture is not the newest one but for the 3* hotel is OK. Only what I missed is a closet. You don't have it in the room, just place where you can hang the stuff.
I liked the breakfast too and definitely suggest you to take it while you are staying there.
I have to give 5* to the staff- they are nice, polite and helpful.
I liked the possibility to get free coffee at any time in the lobby.
Position of the hotel is good, you are 15 min away from white house, and many museums.
