I spent a week for work in DC where they put all of us from out of town at the Virginian Suites. I read some mixed reviews here before going so wasn't sure what to expect. I was very pleased with my stay and irritated by some of the negative reviews -- I'm not sure what people are expecting but... More

The worst thing about this place is the pungent smell that hits you right as you walk in. It may be the old age or lack of care. The cupboard doors in the kitchenette were crooked, the paint chipped off. I wouldn't cook there anyway. The breakfast is average. The things I liked were the pillows (great support!) and the...

I stayed here while working in DC area. The service was awesome. When I arrived my reservation was there but they stated my company did not pay for the room.

I keep coming back and continue to be impressed. Have stayed in many hotels all over, but staying at Virginia Suites is just simply the best - every single time. Most hotels' priority is saving a buck, thinly veiled by semi-courteous employees on auto-drive. Virginia Suites exudes an air of through-and-through priority of caring for their guests. It's as if... More

Staff very efficient/pleasant/ helpful. Printing boarding passes? Front desk saved the day. Leaving too early for breakfast? Food service provided a "packed breakfast." Beds are heaven: Sheets/comforter/pillows. Towels very thick and soft. Plenty of soap/shampoo/conditioner provided. Kitchen fully stocked. Great way to save money by "eating in." A welcome snack basket greeted us and was wonderful to have. Internet service... More

My wife and I needed a room for one night to attend a funeral at Arlington National Cemetery. Checked with Tripadvisor looking for a room which was close to the cemetery, clean, had good service, and didn't cost an arm and a leg. I found the Virginian Suites at Arlington.
