“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011

This hotel is in a super neat location for starters. The streets are beautifully landscaped and lots of outdoor cafe's. People are out every night. It has that home away from home feeling. The hotel is super clean and really nice. The hotel staff are very accomodating. They offer a free shuttle anywhere within a 5 mile radius of the hotel. Their price is a little high, but keep negotiating with them. We got our room for $97.99 a night. It was totally worth it!

My husband and I checked in Saturday 07/09/2011 for a week. Although we are here on business, we couldn't have picked a better hotel. The hotel sits in Shirlington Village which has a grocery store and many resturants to choose from. I am able to work from the room while he is at his conference during the day. Everyone is extremely nice and helpful from the Fron Desk Staff to the Shuttle Drivers. There is a guest laundry which is always helpful for those that pack light. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We used my wife's Hilton Honors rewards points for a quick midweek getaway to D.C. and couldn't have asked to find a better place to stay. You have to give up a little travel time into the city but the hotel has a shuttle service to and from the nearest Metro Station. We thought the free parking and shuttle was an easy trade off to spending more to stay in Washington. The Front Desk, housekeepers and shuttle drivers could not have been any more welcoming or helpful. Room was clean and quiet. Only issue our kids had was the tiny pool. But as I pointed out, we were not there to swim.
The Village at Shirlington area where the hotel is located, is one of the neatest places we've ever stayed. Small two block area with a lot of different dining options, a grocery store across the street, a theater. I said if I had to move to DC for work, this would be the ideal place. All in all, great 1 night stay. Will definitely be on the list for our next trip.

This is a really nice hotel that is very close to lots of great places to eat within walking distance. Since I was on business travel, have good convenient places to eat close to the hotel is important. Check-in was easy, but the front of the hotel was a little tricky to find especially since the parking garage was across the street, so drop off your luggage first so you dont have to drag it all the way back to the hotel. Upon getting to my room, I had a nice note from management welcoming me to the property. The room was spacious and clean, but the bed was not as comfortable as I would like. Another inconvenience was that the metro was not within walking distance, but the hotel has a shuttle available to take you to the nearest station as well as other nearby stops. Parking was free, but you have to park in the higher floors and also was an inconvenince to drive all the way to the top of the garage and all the way down every time. Overall a good stay for business travel, but I probably wouldn't stay here if I was on leisure travel.

We live in NYC but subscribe to several theaters in the Washington DC/VA area. The Signature Theater is in Shirlington, a small planned community in the south part Arlington.

The Hilton Garden Inn is new, clean and convenient. It's a block away from the theater and a two block stretch of restaurants of all types.

There's free parking in the vertical garage across the street, and a gym, pool and business center. It's close to I-395, so it's a ten minute drive into DC, where we enjoy shows at the Kennedy Center and the Arena Stage. It's even closer to Reagan Airport, although we've never heard the planes.

The staff is pleasant and helpful, and there's a small shop in the lobby for picking up little things you might have forgotten to pack. There always seem to be free fresh cookies available at the front desk.

There's also a restaurant which we have never tried, but other guests we spoke to who ate there seemed to like it.

Located about 10-15 minutes west of National Airport (DCA) in a really neat little walkable neighborhood with tons of nice restaurants, this hotel floats up there above any of all the different Hilton properties I've ever stayed in. There are plenty with taller/ fancier/costlier/ whatever, but simply none better. Hard to describe, but I hope you will appreciate it as much as I did.

I know a hotel's staff can make or break one's stay, but across the board these folks were extraordinarily thoughtful, friendly, and helpful. They have a free shuttle that takes you anywhere within 5 miles of the hotel and will pick you up with just a phone call when you're done. Shuttle to the airport is their own dependable deal. The shuttle driver was embarrassed when I gave him a tip!

The room upgrade I got with my frequent stay at Hilton status was ridiculously cool, and enough to make me join up if I didn't already "get it."

This could be the top hotel value in the entire DC area in terms of value and good karma. There's a theater (the real kind) across the street showing high quality plays and musicals; a nice movie theater next door; and all kinds of people out late enjoying the urban experience created in this small area by some thoughtful city planners.

PS I don't often write gushy reviews, and I have no connection to this place.
