Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Hotel Arboretum

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Great Group Accomodations"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites Washington DC has easy access to downtown and museums and only minutes to Capitol Hill and Union Station. The National Arboretum is where you can enjoy some outdoor space adjacent to the hotel. This hotel is perfect for bus tour groups with easy parking, indoor pool and complimentary breakfast. The hotel will open up their meeting rooms to serve breakfast so groups can stay together. The hotel itself is very stylish and modern with spacious rooms that have mostly two double beds to accommodate student and adult groups alike.

"I wish I knew about you guys sooner, I've enjoyed being able to come home and go to the computer and see lots of hotels asking me to stay with them. (almost like that commercial, when the banks fight over getting your business) Will recommend to others and can't wait to use the service again myself." P.C. - Philadelphia, PA
