I really like the Virginian Suites - it feels like home away from home. The full size kitchen is a big plus to complement the very spacious living room and large bathroom/closet area. The complementary shuttle from the Rosslyn Metro station is helpful although the walk is a nice one if you want to see a great view of the... More

We stayed for 2 nights while passing twice through DC. Full size kitchen was great given the fact that we had to cook for allergy reasons. Quite clean, nice staff. The amenities in the rooms were a little inconsistent but it was not really a big deal. Great location - steps away from a couple of sightseeing spots. We walked... More

Room not as nice as what posted on their website, but served its purpose for the price. Roomy enough for a family of four. Front staff was friendly. Kids enjoyed the goodies i.e….cookies, fruit and Lemon water. Would stay here again, got use to the airplanes after our first night. Nice walk to Metro and found some geocaching on the... More

This hotel is within an easy walk to the mall and they have a shuttle to take you to and from the metro station even though it is only a five-minute walk. The night desk staff was so friendly. They told us about the hotels origins as an apartment building. Each room has a full kitchen. They got matches so... More

This hotel does have shuttle service to the metro. It is old but has large rooms. Breakfast and dinner is available each weekday. Many travelers stay the week. Not much else to say. Kitchens are nice, remodeling in the rear entrance. Can hear airplanes from Reagan Airport often. They stop around midnight and start back around 6 AM.

I took my wife to see Lion King at the Kennedy Center and did not want to drive home after the show so I reserved a room at the Virginian Suites, Arlington.

I don't know if we got the only room that did not look anything like the pictures online but our room was tired and dated. Our furniture was from the 90's. The only updated part was the bathroom. The carpet was torn at entry, the hallways were on the dark side. The lobby was nice and modern, not sure what... More

My Wife and I were in Virginia on vacation to visit Washington DC. The hotel rooms unfortunately are old and broken down. It looks like they are working on upgrades, but for now, beware. The air-conditioning is wall units and loud. They kick on and off constantly which is bad when trying to listen to the TV, but during the... More

Poor accessibility - cab got lost trying to find it. Slow, disorganized front desk. All in shabby condition - elevators slow, crowded; halls unswept; rooms noisy. At least rooms are a bit large, with semi-functional furnishings. Walk to Metro OK. Not much in neighborhood re restaurants, esp., a little late. Breakfast included - everything in packages (nothing fresh).
