We spent four nights at this hotel and found it to be quite nice as well as quiet. It is pretty convenient to the Metro (about a 4 block walk) and several good restaurants within walking distance. The rooms were very clean. The restaurant was very small, actually a counter where you ordered breakfast which consisted of mostly things they... More

Room was neat and tidy, hotel staff were friendly and pretty helpful. Nebiu Ezra (shuttle bus driver) displayed exceptional customer service, highly commendable. One snag though breakfast meal choice was limited, other than this all else was good

One night stay on a Friday night in August. The hotel is pretty easy to find with a good gps. At night it can be a little tricky. Parking is 14.00 a night but you can leave your car all day the next day, which makes the 14.00 tolerable. The lot seemed safe and secure. The staff was nice and... More

Really hard for us to find at night with a bum car GPS and not the best of maps. Our problem. Once we figured out that Rt 66 was the key and how the East vs. West exits worked, driving into Washington and back was straight forward. The room was very clean and well appointed and met our needs nicely.... More

For a Washington D.C. trip with family (or not), this wound up a great weekend value at just $94 per night. BUT keep in mind that was for a summer Friday and Saturday. Wound up needing to add a Monday night in there (hopefully) and price zoomed to $234 per night. Didn't do it (Alexandria Hampton Inn instead, though not... More

Stayed there from July 2nd to 5th this year. Went with the family to sightsee and to watch July 4th fireworks. Hotel was perfect. Close to Metro stop so getting downtown was really easy. They even had a shuttle that drove us to the Metro stop. Very close to a couple of restaurants. The outdoor pool was also nice.

As always, I enjoyed my recent 3-day stay at the Holiday Inn at Arlington. Folks like Mohamed who is a concierge and Roberto, who works in the lounge make this a friendly, professional, cheerful and relaxing place in the Washington, DC area. Both of these guys epitomize professionalism in greeting guests, and always say "Welcome Back" and " Good to... More

....and have always been satisfied with the staff, the cleanliness of the rooms, the breakfast (not included), even the gift shop. One summer visit we enjoyed the rooftop pool, as well. The only off-putting experience is the hefty price we have to pay for parking. We are club members and a review I read earlier this year stated that because... More

We stayed here on a whim on our drive back from Florida on July 4th. It was very clean, well priced, and the location (with DC fireworks in mind) was excellent. The staff were the best part of our stay. They were very helpful in advising our family of the best way to view the fireworks, and DC transpiration. They... More

Stayed there for one night, found the staff to be courteous, and the room to be clean. Finishes could use updated for the prices that were charged. Stopped by the bar for a night-cap - decent beverage selection at reasonable prices.
