So sad to see how terrible the rooms in this hotel have gotten. I started going to the Arlington 45 years ago with my parents and have many fond memories from the grand hotel. This beautiful old historic building is a wonderful place to stop in to look around, maybe have a drink in the lobby bar or on their... More

As you walk into the Arlington you can tell a great deal of care has been taken in keeping the hotel looking like it is from the 20's. Check in was quick and easy and they still use metal keys to get into the rooms that is neat. From there it goes down hill. The hallways to my room were... More

The location and the city are fine. The hotel is historic and has some charm. The air conditioning is woefully inadequate making a summer stay totally unacceptable. The bell staff are rude and "force" you to use a bell person at least while first occupying your room. (I did not use them upon checking out) The common areas of the... More

I was expecting nostalgia, what I got was closer to "shabby chic", with the emphasis on SHABBY. While the location was perfect for our plans, and the beds were comfortable, the outdated bathroom, the generally worn-out furnishings in the room and the hotel, the dimly lit beauty salon and the HORRIBLE pool (dirty, cracked plaster, broken tiles, murky water) made...

We stayed the weekend of July 18th. I knew it was an older hotel. Our room was pleasant and comfortable and our bed was fantastic. It was cool to imagine how people stayed here so long ago and the stories this hotel must have. If you are expecting 65 degrees and a quiet soundproof room then stay elsewhere. The ceiling... More

This was our second stay at the Arlington. The hotel was built in 1923 and has been modernized some, but still keeps the feel of a 1923 hotel. Our room was on the 9th floor, overlooking bath house row; the view was spectacular. The spa tub in our room was convenient and relaxing after a long, HOT day of sightseeing.

As much as I love old buildings and history, I will NOT be back to stay at the Arlington. It is a great place to stop in and look around. This beautiful old historic building did not make for a comfortable stay. Upon checking in and getting to our room, we called the front desk and asked if it was... More

Despite some of the TripAdvisor 'warnings', we decided to give this place a shot. Our room was clean and the beds and bedding were comfortable. A pair of queen beds would have been ideal for our party of four, but I don't believe the size of the room will accommodate them. The doubles were fine for one night. We really... More

Me and my wife decided to make our first trip to Hot Springs this past weekend. Having never been we consulted trip advisor for accommodations. We struggled with convenience of location vs dismal reviews. In the end we gave the Arlington a go because of location. First off, if the purpose of your trip is historic bathhouse row, there is...

I recently visited Hot Springs with a group and we had a block of rooms at The Arlington Hotel, a very old historic hotel along Bathhouse Row. Although a very charming one, the hotel management should consider upgrading the guest rooms while maintaining the historic architectural design and cultural appeal. The staff throughout my stay were very cordial and kind.... More
