    Holiday Inn National Mall
    Holiday Inn - Great Location, you can walk to the DC National Mall - about 2 blocks. That's why I chose this location. It is a very nice hotel that looked a bit run down, probably due to maintenance and staff cutbacks relating to the Deadly Cononavirus outbreak. The hotel seemed basically deserted. The room was fine - Clean and comfortable. Hotel Parking was an additional $53, which I DID NOT expect and was NOT Pleased about, but what can you do. The room rate was pretty good so I guess it balances out. DC has ridiculous virus rules - we ate in the hotel restaurant, the only people in there. The waiter told us to wear our masks even though we were seated, until we got our food. I asked if she could bring our drinks and then could we remove our stupid masks - she said OK. The food took more than a half hour but it was good. There is a McDonalds on the same block which would have been a better choice. All in All, it was a good experience and I would stay there again since the location is really good.

    Pleasant Stay*-***-
    My stay at this location was great for many reasons, first the location was 1 street over from the capitol and a short walk or bus ride to many activities. Even though there was a lot of employees at the hotel everyone was nice and had a great attitude and worked as a team, the maintenance man brought up towels to our team and took out the trash to help the housekeepers. Teamwork. There was no meals at the hotel due to Covid-19, but a McDonalds on the corner. The only problems was that we found dirty bed sheets in one of the drawers in the room, which was quickly moved by staff. I would stay again.

    About Average
    Needs a microwave, and more ice machines (really long hike from one end of building to another to get to the ice machine). If you get picky, the room needed cleaning in the corners and vents, the AC unit panel was falling off and was open, the mirror glazing was peeling, obviously a property on the downward slope.

    A little disapointed.
    We were there during the 1st part of the covid 19. They basically shut us off from all their services. Not good when you are traveling. But I do understand we are covering new territory.Still, as a traveler, you are pretty dependent on the hotel for some basic services.

    Miserably firm mattresses.
    The mattresses are so firm they feel like you’re sleeping on concrete. This was probably the most miserable sleeping I’ve ever had while on vacation. The hotel, while clean, feels dated and needs updating in the rooms. The wall paper was peeling in the restroom in room 944 and the toilet leaked water all over the floor. The staff was extremely friendly.

    Family trip
    Family trip with kids. Hotel was nice slightly small room no microwave but has a coffee maker and refrigerator in the room. The location allows us to walk to all the popular monuments and museum and it has many places to eat around. On the weekends there is not many restaurants near the hotel open but the hotel has a restaurant inside but is a little pricey. The housekeeper was excellent and left us enough toiletries for the family and kept the room nice and clean. I have no complaints and was pleased with the service and location. It’s not a luxurious place but is was great for our family.
