“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We travelled all the way from Jordan. It was a long journey and upon arrival we were greeted with very friendly staff..The room was excellently clean, cool and of full service. Kitchen had all essential needs and cutleries were very clean. Room service was amazing and the staff were always ready to serve us with a smile on their faces.we asked for extra blankets and they were up in no time.The pool was very clean and well serviced. The all day complimentary coffee and juice were just a relief. The free shuttle was also an additional amazing service. We stayed at the Virginian suits a total of 11 days and I will highly recommend it for anyone looking for comfort and safety. Thanks to all the staff from Eda to Mohammed and Sara for making our stay a pleasant one. Hope to visit you soon.

Mohammed & Suzy from Jordan.

We stayed here on a recent trip to DC. We didn't want to pay the prices of staying downtows so we decided to stay here. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The hotel is close to the metro which can take you to all of the major sights in the area.

A great place to stay!

Greetings to you, and thank you for staying with us here at the Virginian Suites Arlington! It is much more economical to stay here on the Virginia side of the Potomac if you want to go sightseeing in DC. Our location is actually perfect for this, since we are so close to the Metro, and you can even walk to Georgetown in 20 minutes! We appreciate your kind words on our staff and the cleanliness of the hotel, thank you so much for that. Please let us know if we can book a future reservation for you! Thanks again, and we look forward to hearing from you.

In the beginning I wasn't so sure about this hotel because of its location, and it looks like an apartment building outside but once I walked in everything got much nicer, the environment was warm, and the aura was pleasant. I wasn't sure how the rooms looked but once I got there, I thought that there was a mistake because I had a kitchen, living room, dinning room, and then a bed room. But turns out all the rooms are like that, they just get nicer as u upgrade. Oh I can't forget about the sauna, which by the way I'm now addicted to going every night. Good times in VA, hope this helps

Hello there! We really appreciate your great review on your stay at the Virginian Suites. As you stated, looks can be deceiving! Our building did in fact used to be an apartment complex, which is great because this makes all of our suites 30-50% larger than other hotel rooms in the area! I'm glad that you found the hotel to be warm and inviting, that is exactly what we aim for here. The size of our suites is incredible, there's so much space you don't know what to do with it! Also, I'm glad that you were able to use the sauna, many of our guests love that amenity, especially after a long day of work or sightseeing. Again, thank you so much for your words, and we hope to hear back from you soon at the Virginian Suites Arlington!

I think this place always runs price specials. Got a nice one-bedroom suite on top floor for two: $108 (including tax). Very pleased. Rooms average to above average. Not a 4-5 star, but can stay 3 nights at Virginian at the same price as a one night 5 star. Nice to have a kitchenette. Clean. Recommend a car, as the hotel is a bit of a distance from Metro, although they do advertise their shuttle to the Roslyn Metro stop. Will definitely stay again next time in the DC area.

Hello there! Thanks for your great review on the Virginian Suites Arlington! It's nice to hear that you really enjoyed your stay with us. Sounds like you got a great deal on your reservation! Many guests really appreciate the spaciousness of the suites, as well as the advantage of having a full kitchen. It is great for both short term and long term stays. As for having a car for your stay, it all depends on what your activities will be while you're here. Many guests opt for the Metro system, since it is so close and convenient to get in and out of the city (plus we have our hotel shuttle to take you there Monday through Friday!). However, if you know you'll be venturing out more into Virginia or Maryland, it may be best to have a car. We provide parking here at the hotel for $9/night. Thanks again for the nice review, we hope that you and your family come back to us someday!

My family enjoyed the wonderful outdoor pool... next to the sights of Washington DC; this must be the #2 favorite from our family. The staff was very friendly and was able to guide us toward the area attractions. We were pleased to realize that the hotel is located in a safe walking area.

Room Tip: The 1 bedroom suites are larger than the studio suites.

Hello! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us here at the Virginian Suites! Our pool is great, guests really enjoy it! It is amazing to go for a swim in the hot, humid summers that DC gets. The location is very convenient to the famous sites of DC, as well as here in Arlington! As you said, we are in a very safe area, so there's no worries for when you're out walking around. We really appreciate your great words on our staff as well. We would love to see you come back to the Virginian Suites, we want to become your #1 favorite hotel! Thanks again, and please visit us again sometime.

I'm staying here for 10 weeks this summer for an internship and the staff has been more than accommodating. It's an easy 10 minute walk to the metro or they offer a shuttle both in the morning and evenings (but only during the work week). The staff here are always willing to go above and beyond their job to help out. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable with tons of soft pillows for even more added comfort. The kitchens come well-equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal. The free breakfast has numerous food options to choose from for even the most picky eater. The location is ideal and close to many attractions as well as some restaurants. I will definitely be recommending this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the D.C. monuments!

Hello to you, and thank you for your review on our hotel! I am so glad that our property has been working out so well for you during your summer in DC! Also, thanks for your great comments on our staff, they truly go above and beyond for our guests! Our location is great, especially since we are so close to the Metro system (our shuttle helps a lot too!). Our suites are perfect for long term stays like yourself, especially with all the space and the kitchens. Thanks for the comments on our continental breakfast, I'm glad it has been provided for you during your stay! The restaurants and convenience stores nearby help a lot for those times when you want other food too. Thanks again for your review, and we'll be seeing you soon at the VIrginian Suites!
