“My First Choice in DC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2010

This property is just about everything you could ask for in a DC area hotel. Check-in was lightspeed quick and the desk manager (can't remember his name) was really friendly and helpful.
The room was excellent, as I received an upgrade to a suite for being an Hhonors diamond member. The room was huge, and even had a mini-bar and ice maker! Wi-fi was easy and fast. The room was quet and the beds as comfy as they make. The friendliness of the staff, fast check-in and complimentary bottled water are some of the nice touches that made my stay enjoyable. I commend this hotel's management for operating a very well run hotel that makes guest satisfaction a priority. Thank you!
My stay here was the 2nd time at this location and I hope to return here for all future stays in the DC area.
My one (and only) disappointment is the parking rate. I ended up parking at another hotel nearby that offered me free parking despite that I was not staying there.

We stayed here during or school Spring Break. Great location 2 blocks from Metro, Great breakfast (included with our package). Our car battery died in the parking garage and an employee was able to jump start it ,that was greatly appreciated! Greg the "Whoo Hoo" guy was there in the evenings, the kids loved him and everyone should be as positive and enthusiastic about their jobs as he is!!!

Selecting a hotel in the DC area for a family vacation was a bit of a chore. After looking at prices, we decided to stay outside of the city, but worried about feeling too removed. I am thrilled to say that the courthouse arlington turned out to be an excellent choice. The hotel itself is in very good shape. Clean rooms, nice staff, complete workout area, and, best of all, complimentary Starbucks coffee all day long. The building is less than two blocks from a metro stop and the ride into DC takes less than 10 minutes. The real bonus turned out to be how fun Arlington itself is. There are lots of cool, delicious eating options nearby. We feasted on vietnamese, indian, and mexican dinners on the nights we didn't head back into DC. And parking seemed pretyy reasonable (at least by DC standards) at 12 bucks a day. Oh and if you are a runner -- there is a wonderful nearby path on Roosevelt Island.

Dear VTMommy_8,

Thank you for posting your comments regarding your time with us. As you found out, Arlington is such a lively, convenient location to stay when visiting anywhere in DC. The metro is located so close to the hotel and makes it very easy to get anywhere you need to.

I enjoy running also and will have try out Roosevelt island - another favourite of some of our guests is the Custis Trail along past the Jefferson memorial.

Hope to see you next time you are in DC.

My wife and I stayed here in late April for a weekend visit to DC. We picked this place because of the proximity our friend's condo. The staff and service are fantastic and made us feel welcome. Location is great - easy to reach by car and 1 block from Metro (just a few quick stops to the main DC attractions). The area is also quiet with plenty of options for all key needs during a stay ... breakfast / coffee places, numerous restaurants, and several places to enjoy a drink/cocktail. We'll definitely stay there again when we're visiting our friends.

Dear BNJTravelers,

Happy to hear you and your wife enjoyed your time with us, and that you will be returning next time you are visiting your friends.

Many of our weekend guests are quite often people staying to visit family/friends in the local area and find us a great, comfortable accommodation option because of added benefits such as a fridge and microwave in every room.

Look forward to seeing you again soon!

The hotel is located 2 blocks from a Metro station and so is very convenient for visiting The Mall and other sites in DC. There are also restaurants and stores such as a pharmacy next to the Metro to add to the convenience.

Our plans did change because of "volcanic ash". The staff were very helpful to make some changes. Otherwise the hotel was very clean and we slept well.

All in all an excellent stay.

Dear oilfieldtravelled,

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent time with us. With the volcanic ash causing great issues for travellers such as yourselves, we were only happy to help out where we could. Unforseen events do occur, and we were more than happy to "extend" your time in Arlington.

I hope that your next vacation is less eventful, but just as enjoyable!

Sincerely,

My 10-year-old daughter and I spent three days in this hotel while on her spring break. Our third floor room was spacious and comfortable - more than adequate. The beds were a little soft, but that really didn't bother us. The fridge and microwave were nice touches. Location is excellent, a block from the orange line. It is at the front desk where the hotel really shines. Staff upon check-in was efficient and friendly, taking time to explain the area and the Metro. The shuttle van was a great convenience. We were so appreciative of the 7 a.m. ride to Arlington National Cemetery that enabled us to avoid the crowded rush-hour trains and reach the cemetery well ahead of the tourist throngs. We wanted pizza one night and the staff recommended a place and took us there. Same thing with an ice cream place. They also came back and picked us up when we were finished. The front desk staff and Rachel really care about their guests. In fact, Rachel even said "hello" when we ran into her off-duty down the street from the hotel. This place is certainly a find and we will stay here EVERY time were are in DC.

Dear Daveck904,

Happy that you and your daughter enjoyed a nice spring break together. Our location is excellent for young families, and there's always lots to do in the area.

Sounds like you took advantage of the benefits of the shuttle and our locality. Arlington has a lot to offer when it comes to attractions, food and things to do.

Hope to run into you on the street again next time you are in town. :) It's easy to become a familiar face around here!

My family and I stayed here a few nights during the Cherry Blossom Festival (too bad we missed the blossoms!). Staying in Arlington is a great alternative to overpriced DC hotels. We got a great rate on Expedia that was a FRACTION of a DC hotel. This HGI is a 3 minute walk from the Orange line. Easy ride into the city center for all sites.

Greg (the "WooHoo" guy referenced below) was the highlight of the hotel. My kids absolutely adored him. People may think he's a bit much, but everyone should be HALF as enthusiastic about their job. Keep up the good work.

Rooms were clean (we were in 501 on the end of the hallway). No elevator noise for me, but yes they flushing noise is annoying. Beds were too soft for my taste, but everyone else in my family thought they were OK. Linens were clean. On Saturday, however, after being in DC all day, we returned at 4 p.m to an unmade room. I realize that they work all day, but we wanted to relax and had to go back out to have the room serviced.

Ragtime (next door) has decent food, but definitely walk to Me Jana on Wilson for UNBELIEVABLE Lebanese food. (You need reservations.) Convenient to shopping. Was very pleased when I found a Whole Foods nearby!

Dear momeees,

A special shout out from Greg - "Woohoo!" Delighted to hear you and your family enjoyed your time with us here in Arlington!

As you mentioned, Greg is one of our superstars at the front desk that makes for a truly unique and personal stay.

Me Jana is a great local restaurant. Next time you are in town, stop by the desk and we will be sure to give you tips on some more delicious options that are located a stone's throw away (kebabs, peruvian, top burgers, spanish tapas...you name it, Arlington's got it!)

I will be sure to follow up with housekeeping regarding your room not being made up also - I'm sorry we did not exceed your expectations on this day - I know how nice it is to come back from a day of sightseeing to a freshly made bed.

Sincerely,

Rachel Bridger
