The hotel is sweet! It has 17 floors and a restaurant on the top floor. There is a ballroom and a pool. We even walked to the Iro Shima War Memorial at midnight. Great accommodations and great location.

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Rosslyn @ Key Bridge Arlington
Great Hotel-Great Service!
The first thing you want to do after deciding to stay here is join the priority club. It's definitely worth it. The breakfast buffet, which is served on the 17th floor with great views of D. C. and Georgetown, is normally $10.00 per person. This is free to all priority club members. The staff was more than helpful allowing us to check in 2 hours early. Since we had a very late flight the day of checkout they allowed us a late checkout of 2 hours, and even held our bags an additional 3 hours. Our 10 year old loved the pool, which even had a lifeguard on duty. The room was average but had a great view. The metro system is only a block and 1/2 away. There are also several places to eat all within a short walking distance of the hotel. If we ever decide to go back to D.C. this hotel will be at the top of my list!
Good Value, Great Location
Stayed at the Holiday Inn Rosslyn and found it to be a great family friendly hotel in a great location. For Style and the better perks, stay somewhere else and pay $150 per night more. For priority club members, you cannot beat this. Free Full Breakfast for all in your room with PC membership. Close to the Metro and Georgetown, and had a great view from the restaurant on the top floor. Additionally, the indoor pool was a hit with all the kids staying at the hotel.
Again, keep in mind you are staying at a nicer than average Holiday Inn and you will be pleasantly rewarded.
Washington DC with indoor pool for $135
What a great value! Just across the Potomac River from Georgetown in Arlington, VA and a block and a half from the Rosslyn Metro Subway, we'll stay here again. Large room with a balcony and free ($10 value on the 17th floor) continental breakfast [if you sign up for the PriorityClub BEFORE you reserve] and an indoor swimming pool and fitness room. Just 5 stops on the Metro subway from Washington Regan Airport and 3 stops to DC largest shopping center at Pentagon City. It's also walking distance across the bridge from Georgetown. You'll take the Metro everywhere! McDonalds and Burger King are 2 blocks away. We turned our rental car in after the first day! You'd pay well over $200 a night for an indoor pool IN DC!
Location was great - Hotel had some flaws
Our family of four visited DC for the first time. The hotel's location was great. We could walk into Georgetown over the Key Bridge & the Rosslyn metro was a short walk away. There were several restaurants within walking distance. The lobby area was very nice. The room was okay with 2 main issues. The first was the bathroom - there was mildew in the caulking around the bottom of tub, the floor had black scratch/scuff marks all over it and the bathroom door was delaminating - the overall effect of the bathroom was not very appealing. The second problem was the sound from rooms next door. Our room had connecting doors to the rooms on either side of us and the doors did not appear to have any soundproofing. The first night we had a group of teenagers next door who were talking loudly - we could hear everything - I finally called down to the lobby around midnight. They apparently called up to the room and it did quiet down after that. The next was fine, but the third night again we had noisy neighbors. Another minor problem was that the ice machine by us was not working so we had to go down a floor for ice. If we visit again I will definitely stay in the Rosslyn area, but will look for a different hotel.
Great for visiting Georgetown University/DC
This was our second stay at the Holiday Inn in Rosslyn. It is located just accross Key Bridge from Georgetown, which makes it convenient to visit Georgetown University. The room was standard, but with modern furniture and two queen beds. The bathrooms were small, although a second sink helped. We were on upper floors and there were no noise problems. Both times I got a great deal using the Holiday Inn web site (about $95 per night). Parking is free, a rarity in the Washington area, although the garage is a little tight to manuver in. Also, the room tax is lower in Virginia than it is in Washington. Being a Priority Club member (anyone can join), the room included a free full breakfast buffet at the top floor restaurnat on weekdays. The Metro stop is only a block away, which made getting into downtown Washington very easy. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel as there are so many great restaurants in Georgetown and DC that we wanted to try. We will definitely be staying there again.
Favorite in Rosslyn
Rooms were nicely decorated and clean. Rooftop restaurant has a very complete complimentary buffet breakfast and I received a discount coupon on their prime rib dinner. View from the rooftop restaurant across the Potomac to Georgetown and the National Cathedral is great...ask for a riverview room when registering. Walk to Georgetown, Rosslyn Metro is 2 blocks away with access to the orange and blue line metros.....
Holiday Inn Rosslyn Va - great for families
Spent several days here over spring break with my daughter. It's a short block from the Rosslyn metro station, which is only one stop away from DC and 12 minutes from the Mall. Parking is free, kids eat free, and if you join their Priority Club (which you can do when you reserve) full breakfast is free. There is a nice indoor pool and workout area, to. It is a Holiday Inn, not the Ritz, but it was clean, the folks there were friendly, and I would not hesitate to stay there again.
If you recognize my catchy title for this review (a reference to the 1960's Brady Bunch sitcom), then you will recognize THIS Holiday Inn !
It appears as though this hotel is caught in a timewarp, or it is the newest Smithsonian Museum exhibition of 1960's kitsch
My family of 4 stayed at this abysmal hotel in late March 2004. We could not wait to go home.
This hotel is listed as 3-stars !!! NOT EVEN CLOSE ! Maybe 1-1/2 stars - MAX. I have stayed in better Motel 6's than this hotel
1. Bedspreads and decor - last changed in 1966 2. Cable TV not working - sorry, we have to special ordered a part.
3. Staffed by local community college dropouts 4. Elevators that take forever to arrive - when they are working 5. New towels are NOT provided daily unless you specifically throw them on the floor - some rubbish about "environmental sensitivity" 6. Fronts on a "street" that is best described as a super-highway.
Better keep hold of your children 7. Parking garage navigable only by Mini-Coopers or Yugo's 8. Unscheduled 5:45A wake-up provided by neighbors shower - pipes sound like a distant fire alarm 9. No sense of "neighborhood" you are staying in a little satellite downtown business district. Nothing to do except eat Burger King, or Armenian food.
10. No in-room amenities whatsoever. No coffee, no iron, nothing but bad soap 11. Hotel room door opens directly into the bathroom - nice layout for exhibitionists
1. You are a block away from the Metro. Accessed via the longest, deepest, steepest escalator I have ever seen - an E-Ticket ride in and of itself. The good news is that the DC METRO is the best rapid transit I have EVER ridden. Brilliant ! It got my family and I out of this hell-hole daily.
2. You can literally WALK across the Key Bridge into the traffic-jammed Georgetown Shopping district. Lots of cool, hip, young kids supplied with mommy & daddies money to purchase the goods and services of retails elite.
3. The restaurant atop the hotel offers lovely sweeping views of Georgetown and DC. Really nice. And we were given a coupon upon check-in for an "early-bird" prime-rib dinner costing only $ 11.95. Not exactly RuthsChris ... but an excellent value. Oh ... except to eat there for breakfast ... you have to be a PRIORITY Club member or some such nonsense. Commoners must eat cafeteria-style in what amounts to a "basement" concession located on the first floor. Yecchh ! The $ 1.00/cup coffee was brown-stained hot water.
No ... Holiday Inn will never see me, or any of my extended family, at this hotel ever again
I paid $ 134.00 per night for the "pleasure" of these accomodations.
Shame on me.
Loved the service
This Holiday was one of the greatest that I stayed at. It was very close to the Metro so it was easy to get around D.C. The first day we arrived there we had called ahead. We explained to the counter worker that we were driving a Chevy Suburban. He asked how high it was and we told him 79" (6'7"). He then repiled "Wow Like A Bus". This was hilarious. THough after we got to the hotel he was very nice in getting us a rome. The bellhop was also an interesting person. He was an arab man we nicknamed "Chinfuzz". If you see him, you will know why.
Everytime we saw chinfuzz we would intentionally scratch our chins. If you see him carry out the tradition and do the same. In all this was a great hotel, and I would recommend it to anybody that wants to get a great hotel at a great price in our GREAT nations capitol.
D.C. is one of our favorite vacations destinations. We had picked up a travel coupon book on a previous trip. We decided to try the Holiday Inn Key Bridge on our next trip. We were very pleased with this location. While not a brand new faciltiy, it was very nice with clean, adequately sized rooms. The staff was helpful. The indoor pool and fitness room quite nice. Very easy to find from I-66. Very easy access into D.C. both by car and by Metro which is an easy 1 !/2 block walk in a nice neighborhood. I would recommend this property and we will return to it in the future.

This morning we woke up nice and early, so that we could catch our bus into the heart of DC with Jerry our bus driver. We had bought tickets to the Newseum which is all about the history of America and how it has appeared in Newspapers and media. When we first got there they had the front page of every state's newspaper around the country as well as ones around the world including the Herald Sun from Australia! It was interesting seeing all of the different front ...
... was yummy and budget friendly! I was quite excited to try Macdonalds in America! So cheesy!! The IMAX show was ok, but a bit pricey for what it was and we could have saved the money for something else to be honest. But it was an experience and therefore we enjoyed it! We finished the ground floor and went upstairs to check out the rest of the displays. There was the nose of a Boeing 747 which we went in. After a while we started to feel all airplane-d out! We ...
