“Not the best place to stay in DC area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

The reserved room was not ready (after 3 pm.)
The second room did not have TV and phone working.
The third room was OK, but the AC was not working properly, leaving musty smell.
Overall, the hotel is very tired.
However, the front desk staff was efficient and friendly. Location is good.

After a $6 million floor-to-ceiling renovation and a streling rating on this site, I don't think we qualify as "tired" and i truly wish you had reached out to me or one of our supervisors so we caould have fixed your challeneges but...should you ever venture into the Arlington, give me a call and we'll see if we can't show you what we're really like.
Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback.

There's nothing particularly wrong with this hotel, but it's not great. It is just satisfactory. My room was in satisfactory shape, albeit starting to show its age -- due for a refresh within the next few years, I would say. Nicely furnished and laid out rooms. I had a rather comfortable two-seater couch, and a good sized desk.

I stayed on a Sunday night and had a weekend rate, which was a great value, especially for the area, and for a hotel so close to the metro. However, for Monday night and onward the rate more-than-doubled, at which point this hotel is severely out-classed by other nearby options in the price range, essentially making it a terrible value.

Great for a weekend stay. Very highly recommended if you do business in the area, get in on Sunday, and leave Monday night, since you can still get that weekend rate.

During the week though? Give this one a pass. You can do better.

I am so sorry you feel that way about our hotel especially since we rank above every other hotel in the area on this very website and also given that we just received our second Award of Excellence too. It is a shame but we thank you for taking the time to give us your thoughts.

I called the hotel upon arrival at the airport for directions. Tamisha was vary helpful and gave us detailed metro directions. Having never taken this her directions were spot on without us having to wory. When we arrived we were informed my reservations were for the Shirlington, a few miles away and its a common mix up.
Walking from the metro we loved this hotels location with the metro being so close and the dining around the area. I asked if there was any way to get us in. Tamisha did find a room for us and honored the booked rate. Her and Ernest were very helpful and attentive throughout our stay. Great service like this is hard to come by and they really made our experience great. Yes the hotel was clean and and convenient, but the great hospitality those two provided wanted me to give this place a 10!

Location great being it's near a Metro Station. The hotel was very clean! The staff was very friendly and very helpful when I asked them for information. Our daughter lives two blocks away so will very likely stay there again. Our room was very quiet and the bed was very comfortable. We did not try the restaurant so can't critique it.

We are 3 couples who became the best of friends while stationed with the USAF almost 45 years ago in W. Germany! Meeting in Arlington, VA. and staying at this Hilton was the perfect choice, as we were spending Memorial Day weekend together touring the Wahington DC area. The location was very close to a Metro stop, a number of casual or fine dining restaurants. The hotel itself was comfortable, clean and accommodating in every way. If you are an HH member you are greeted as such and get breakfast coupons and bottles of water at check-in. We found the staff friendly, courteous and always willing to assist. For family, reunions, weddings or any other gathering, this property would be an excellent choice. ML

The room is very spacious, dark and quiet. Free Wi-Fi, microwave and mini-fridge. Breakfast was not included but there was frequently a fruit basket on lobby desk and fresh baked cookies in the afternoon. Very convenient to metro station. Staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

Hope to see you again soon.

Everything was good and met my expectations except for my check-out process. The staff was friendly and greeted me by name every time I walked through the lobby, as well as asked if I needed anything. The hotel and rooms were very clean. It had all the amenities I needed and was a great location for conducting my business/work. Oh yeah, the complimentary evening cookies we delicious!
