This hotel was clean and pleasant. The room (king) was very large, quiet, and comfortable. The hotel is about 3 blocks from the Ballston Metro, and the hotel has a free shuttle. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the area. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was good.

I like the front desk staff. They were compliant with a computer only coupon for free breakfast. They gave it to myself and my friend for our entire 4 days stay. I also liked the fact that they suggested to reuse the towels in the rooms to save water. I did not like that the staff STRUGGLED to speak English.... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights. Service at the desk is polite, professional and efficient. The hotel room is fine. Location is convenient for business in the Ballston area. Metro station is close. Room is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is consistent with other Holiday Inns. I recommend staying at this hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights while in town for a funeral. The location of the hotel is excellent, in that everything is nearby, including the church and the cemetery for the funeral. But the staff have problems getting things right. We booked the hotel with a phone call to the hotel, and ordered the "total package,"... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 10 years although it has been about 4 years since I last stayed there. Its getting to be a tired place in need of an update. Furnishings are getting worn. On my last stay I was given a room facing Fairfax on the 2nd floor. The curtains in this... More

I was in town for a short business trip and stayed here one night. Service: The front desk receptionist (young lady with glasses and dark curly hair...unfortunately I didn't get her name) was an absolute pleasure to meet. She was extremely friendly and helpful both in terms of the check-in process and in providing information about local restaurants and transportation... More

Great hotel just minutes from downtown D.C. and the D.C. airport. Family friendly, nice restaurant, clean and very nice people. Some very nice restaurants close by, not to mention a great beer bar. I highly recommend.

Took a weekend trip to the DC area, and wanted to be in Arlington to visit a friend. I found this hotel online and was very worried about the accommodations because the rate was so good, but it was a great deal! The room was large and bedding was very comfortable.
