“Quick Weekend Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We weren't looking to spend much time in the hotel as our trip to Arlington was to see friends and sites. This hotel did the trick! It was comfortable and met all basic needs. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The Arlington Hilton is a conviently located hotel, situated at the Ballston Metro stop. The rooms are clean and comfortable. I happened to have noisy neighbors on both sides, but my room was fine. The concierge was friendly and helpful. The desk staff was a bit detached.

The main reason I chose this hotel was due to the location. I was taking a class that is in a building attached to the Ballston Commons Mall which this hotel has a land bridge to.

The hotel is also right at the Ballston metro stop so it makes it very convenient for visiting the city and you never have to walk out in the elements.

The room was spacious and the bathroom was ok as far as space goes. It was small but not the smallest I've been subjected to in the Hilton brands. The bathroom was in need of updating as the wallpaper was falling off the wall and the floors were showing some age. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but it wasn't the worst I've slept on in the last few months.

Overall it was decent but nothing really "wowed" me. The staff was friendly but the lobby is very odd. One of the smallest lobbies I've seen. I'm sure they had a restaurant and such but it wasn't very obvious where it was.

This is a modest recently renovated Hilton that features clean, comfortable rooms with a simply ideal location, literally on the Ballston Metro stop. That's the primary reason I selected this hotel and was not disappointed by the location. While it's true this hotel is a few miles outside of the main Washington, DC city center in nearby Arlington, one would never know it because Metro gets you into DC in about 10 minutes. The hotel itself is not the most luxurious Hilton, as bathrooms are small with quirky plumbing, the toilet ran constantly whenever flushed. While it would eventually stop, it was still a little annoying. Also disappointed that the min fridge in my room did not work. Beds were quite comfortable and featured the signature Hilton bedding. Views on the back side of the hotel nothing to write home about, mine overlooked an office building. Arrived at the hotel very late on a Friday night with limited eating options. Settled on the 24 hour IHOP next door and what a mistake, a real haven for very drunken rowdy college kids, sorry just not my scene. Hotel has convenient skywalk access to the Ballstom Common Mall which features many stores, restaurants, and a movie theatre. Despite some of the quirks with the room, I would probably stay at this Hilton property based upon its incredibly convenient location and the fact that I got a great rate.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel have better views.

This hotel has everything you need to navigate the DC area. A metro stop is out the front door and you don't have to leave the building for a Starbucks and excellent bakery deli. The price was a bit high, but that's DC in the summer.

Was there for one night in May. Was a great Hilton. It is in a perfect location within walking distance to downtown Arlington. The breakfast was superb and the staff was so very nice. The desk staff was helpful with directions and advice. The bellhop was great and super friendly. Even though it was only a one night stay we would love to go back for another visit. I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Every room provides a great view of the downtown.

The trip was not entirely for sightseeing and we needed to be mobile. The concierge gave us a tutorial on the Metro system in the entrance to the system that proved to be extremely helpful. Certainly aided and improved our trip.
