Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Washington Central / White House An Ihg Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Good location, nice hotel."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Hotel is in a good location, rooms were clean, but a little smaller than the pictures make them out to be or smaller than normal hotel rooms, parking is $35+ tax and the Lagrange is very tight. A full size SUV would never have fit. The bathroom was tiny as well. Had to step in toward sink to shut door to get in shower. Water pressure in shower was weak, but water was hot. We had to call froths front desk about the fridge not working and the employee said it’s not a fridge but a cooler and told me that the 75 degree air it was blowing out was the best they could do. I called again and they swapped it out with a different one that worked fine. I shouldn’t have had to go through the extra request. Staff was very accommodating with allowing us to stay in the garage beyond our checkout time which was extremely helpful. All considered I would stay here again.
