      Poor communication with limited services

      Rooms were not cleaned after the first night and guest services told me that I was informed which I never was and hotels.com never carried this information to me either.

      Impressive

      My husband and I stayed at Intercontinental for one night while passing through Washington, DC. The hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The location is really nice with it being waterfront and close to restaurants. We plan to stay there again.

      Great views, food and cleanliness!

      This hotel was amazing! With the pandemic and a snow storm the days we stayed, room service was a must! And they didn’t disappoint. The food was great. Also the security was on point. I felt safe and secure every time we did actually leave the room. So glad we got a room with the water view. Made our stay that much more relaxing. Will be back for sure!
