“Perfect location for a DC vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We stayed at the Hilton Arlington for a family vacation to the DC area. This location was so great. Right at the Ballston Metro station and across from the mall which had movie theaters. We did have the club level rooms which included morning breakfast. That was wonderful for a family so we didn't have to hunt for breakfast before heading out for the day. On Tuesday evening, there was a free happy hour mixer which we enjoyed every minute of. The staff in the club room were all excellent. The front desk was helpful on directions. The only slight complaint I could find is the air conditioning in the room was loud but it wasn't a big deal. We walked to dinner a few nights with great restaurants near the hotel. We met the general manager at the mixer, and he was friendly and engaging. We would stay here again if we ever visit the DC area again.

Room Tip: The club level was worth it for us to have the complimentary breakfast.

This hotel has the metro right outside its door. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are real nice. Another plus is that the hotel is connected to the Balston Common mall via interior walkways. The mall has a food court and several stores. I would stay again.

This property could use a Hilton Upgrade. The service was great, but the amenities and facilities could use some upgrade to compete with other DC area hotels. Being so close to the Metro station is advantageous, except at night when the undesirables set up shop there. Definitely use the front entrance to the hotel.

easy access to metro but not worth the rate. DC only a few metro stops away. waited for 10 minutes at the bar without service. had to poke my head into the kitchen and get someone's attention for service.

Close to many places from dinning, ice cream shops, CVS, malls, and fine dining, I would come back to this hotel, and I would recommend stay here if you're on vacation to see D.C sites. The Hotel is right next to the metro. Staff there were very nice, sociable, they made me feel like I was coming home at the end of a long day walking around. 10/10

I was here for a convention, so I paid too much for the value, but it IS DC. First, the staff were the most pleasant staff I have ever encountered, and I stay at a lot of Hiltons. In f act, everyone I met from the service industry on this trip were great. Even the guy who helped me navigate the subway and the taxi from the airport. The ONE DOWNFALL?...big deal for me, but you may not care.....LOUD air conditioner. I had to wear earplugs. The place was full, so I could not switch rooms. I suspect they are all like that. But when is it 95 degrees, you will want to use the AC. The club room was tiny, too. All in all, for business, this was a fine hotel....great food trucks across the street and metro stop outside the door.
