We stayed at this hotel for the week of July 4th. It was perfect. The hotel is directly across from the Metro rail station. Once we parked at the hotel, we didn't have to get back into our suv until it was time to leave. This was great because parking was Very tight in the parking garage. Our only regret was not driving our sedan. There are a few restaurants within walking distance if the hotel. We had lunch at subway. There is also a great restaurant inside the hotel. All in all, this hotel is perfect for a visit to Arlington and the DC attractions. This is probably the only place I would consider staying at when I return to the area. The rooms were typical Embassy designed and they were clean.
