This was my second stay at this hotel although it has been 2 years since my last stay. Standard Holiday Inn experience which means that I was happy...comfy bed, selection of pillows and a reasonable bathroom. The surprise was how great our dinner was on the first night. We stayed in to eat as there were servere thunderstorms. I had... More

I would rank in bottom third of hotels in the area. Holiday Inn properties are typically dated. Average Holiday Inn stay equals a below average stay in my opinion and this is no exception. There are much better options chain and otherwise in the area if cost and points are not your concern, and sometimes even if they are. Notes-... More

I stayed at this hotel this week for a Monday - Thursday trip where I generally commute down to Federal Triangle or the House Office Buildings. I usually stay downtown but the prices in D.C. were just astronomical and forced me out on the Metro. This hotel made the significant price difference worth the nominal effort. My primary concern is... More

I had an event at the Holiday Inn and it was a great experience. From working with the event planning staff (Jeremy and Virginia) to the lovely ladies and gentlemen who served our meals (Workie, Veron), every last person was so nice, friendly and accommodating! My Banquet Manager, Hamid, was outstanding. He anticipated everything I might need. The food was... More

Good location, just 3 blocks from metro station. Room was adequate and comfortable. Parking is $14/day in a lot, not garage. Staff was friendly. Restaurant was good, kids 12 and under eat free. I'd stay there again.

I stayed at this hotel again and was impressed again with the well-trained and helpful staff. My room preference was accommodated. The front office manager even contacted me by email offering his help during my stay. That was a nice touch! The person who checked me in (Vera) was very helpful and friendly. The best part of this hotel is... More

From the moment I arrived I found the staff to be friendly and accomodating. The room was clean and fairly comfortable as we're the common areas throughout the building. This hotel is very convenient to a number of restaurants that were within easy walking distance as was the metro line which makes it nice to park the car and not... More

We’ve stayed at HI Ballston twice in the last 2 months while visiting family in Arlington and we’ve been delighted with the quality of the hotel and the service. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, clean and quiet. Everyone we encountered offered professional and friendly services (front desk, housekeeping, restaurant and the bartender). Our room was cleaned efficiently every day and... More

I have enjoyed the accommodations here greatly. The location is convenient in many ways for proximity to shopping, the metro, etc. My room was spacious and clean and the food is very good. The staff here pushes the rating to the top. From restaurant to front desk to bartender all just very friendly. Mohammad, who acts as shuttle coordinator and... More

My future daughter-in-law lives in DC as does my son. Childhood friends wanted to honor her with a wedding shower. (Wedding 4-25-15) I stayed at the Holiday Inn, which was very clean and reasonable. My husband forgot his coat in the bedroom and the hotel offered to ship it to us at no cost.
