Cons: the restaurant. the staff's knowledge of the area. you should coordinate between the downtown Holliday Inn to allow parking for guests of this Hollid
good but hard to get used to the drivers and where things are located. where to find parking near the monuments. the staff didn't seem knowledge enough about the sites in D.C. and how to navigate to the sites.

DC sightseeing

Quisha was the first point of contact upon our arrival. She was Fantastic! She was extremely personable and very helpful with tips and suggestions to help with getting around DC. She provided us with free maps and handouts to help facilitate points of interest and commuting options. We dealt with other staff at other times throughout our stay and they too were nice and helpful as well. It's an older hotel, but was fine with us. Onsite parking is great! We were there 5 days and didn't need to drive anywhere the entire time. There are plenty of places within walking distance to eat or pick up any needed items. The hotel shuttle bus was very convenient to take us to the metro to get to DC everyday. Shuttle staff were very friendly! Great trip all in all!

Excellent for the cost

Pros: see above
Cons: piano player in lobby
Location: we walked to thel Crystal City Metrorail
Hotel was clean and room service excellent. We asked for extra blankets and a refrigerator and both were delivered within minutes. Only downside was the 15-minute walk to the Metrorail.

okay stay, but could've been better.

Hotel was clean, updated, comfortable, and attractive. Safe location conveniently located near restaurants, rental car, airport, shopping, etc. friendly, helpful staf, but could've been more informative. Both restaurant and pub were nice places with good food. Our stay was during extremely hot weather and our room was on the top floor. The AC wasn't able to cool the room, so it stayed very uncomfortable. When we reported it, they comped us $40 off. I'd stay there again, just not on the top floor during warm weather.

Our stay went well.

We had to pay $16.00 a day for parking. The people at the front desk were polite. The room was clean. One morning we called the front desk to get three towels, we waited 10 minutes, but we didn't get the towels. Called again, waited 15 minutes, again we didn't get the towels. We had to go to get them ourselves.

I was not able to stay there because I missed my flight because of the traffic. It usually take an hour to get to the airport, however, it took two hours.

Great convenient hotel with access to the Metro.

Pros: Very convenient to food and Metro to the National Mall
Cons: Breakfast Buffet was skimpy and the scrambled eggs tasted like powdered eggs.
Location: It's just two stops on the Metro to the Pentagon and a few more to the National Mall. One line lets you out at the Smithsonian.
The staff was helpful, the access to the Metro was excellent. They run a shuttle every 15 minutes to the Airport, DCA, and the Metro. Legal's Sea Food is just blocks away and they will drop you and pick you up. The room was clean and they cared for it daily with new towels. The have a new PUB located in the building with good food and drinks. It is only a $3.00 Metro ride to the National Mall. Excellent position next to a McDonald's and a Car rental office. We were very pleased with this hotel. Wayne LaMura, Captain 747 Retired

Pros: The food in the restaurants was good.
Many of the staff couldn't help with local directions. No Virginia maps available at this Holiday Inn , Arlington. We had to seek help from outside the hotel for directions. The parking was atrocious. To exit you had to travel thru a narrow passageway. The parking floors were designed poorly. There were no staff to help you with your luggage. We had to use the cart ourselves. We won't stay at a Holiday Inn again.
