I like to stay at the Arlington since its close to Ballston and the general metro area. Its about a 10/15 minute walk to the metro station/Chipotle/Macys. Of course since the hotel is cheaper, its also not as up to date. It definitely needs renovation. However for the Ballston area it is a pretty good deal. Parking is very cheap... More

Was here for a one night stay after a meeting down the street. It was very convenient for my needs. There were places to eat within walking distance, but they also have a dining room and room service. I dined for dinner in their restaurant and it was good and large portions. Gift shop on site for those little things... More

Forget about sleeping in past 6am here.... we stayed in room 600 and apparently there is some major construction going on across the street. I was startled awake by jackhammers, noisy clanging which sounded like metal on metal, and it continued until about 9am. Would not recommend staying here because of the noise. But the property itself seemed OK. Rooms... More

The locations for us was ideal, close to Route 66, metro station was a couple of blocks and restaurants galore. Nevertheless we came across an interesting issue with the air conditioner in the room, IT IS RUN BY MOTION SENSOR! So you may have it set at 70 but if your not moving around, which most of us don't do... More

The staff took great care of us, upgrading us to a king suite and getting us an adjoining room for our children. I want these 2 ladies to get credit but unfortunately didn't catch their names. We checked around 2 PM on July 31st. The room was clean, comfortable and one of the best sleeps ever.

I've stayed here before and found it adequate even if not terrific in any way. But my stay last week was very disappointing due to incredible noise, something I rarely if ever complain about at hotels. I was in a connecting room and the sound insulation was very poor as a result. The guest next to me blared their TV... More

This hotel is clean and typical for a holiday, but nothing fancy. The complimentary breakfast is decent, better than I expected. It's in a sit-down restaurant and includes a combination of hot and cold items on a buffet, rather than the common continental breakfast. Unfortunately, the air conditioning was quite loud, and the controls were removed so I couldn't turn... More
