My husband and I were driving north from Florida to NYC and decided to spend a few days in Washington. After reading through various reviews we decided to stay at this wonderful hotel because it was not located in the city of Washington which is very conjested and expensive. We wanted to take a tour of Washington as we had not been here in years and initially were going to take the subway into the city. After looking at several brochures provided by the hotel we asked a gentleman at the front desk about the Royal Trolley tour. He called them for us and was advised that they would provide transportation for us to the city at no charge. What a deal!! They picked us up at our hotel at 9 a.m. the following morning and returned us to our hotel that evening. We saw everything that we wanted to see and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is lovely and extremely clean. There is free Starbucks coffee in the lobby at all times. The restaurant is a little pricey, but then so is everything in this area. There are several restaurants a couple of blocks away and our favority was a sports bar (cannot remember the name) on the corner where the food is very good. They even turned on the Tampa Bay Rays game for us. We really liked Arlington a lot and will return to this hotel and this area on our next trip north.
