“Service is fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Arlington dozens of times on work trips and have gotten to know the staff and the hotel well. They have long-term employees who remember prior visitors and are welcoming to new visitors and their service makes my business travel much more relaxing than it might be otherwise. The hotel has a courtesy shuttle, driven by Jay during the days and Muhammed in the evenings, who are both extremely service-oriented and helpful. The lobby lounge, staffed by Roberto, another long-term employee, is equally service oriented and welcoming.

I've never written a hotel review before and I travel about 70% of the time. The people at this hotel and the consistent service just make it a comfortable place for me to return to.

Especially--the staff is really nice and welcome me back--especially Jay, who drives the shuttle. Without him and the shuttle I would not be staying there.

I enjoyed my stay of four night at Holiday Inn at Ballston.
Very friendly staff, especially Ms Ronda, clean, spacious room, free internet and closeness to shops, restaurant and metro stations made my work trip more pleasant.
Will come back!

Washinton DC was a wonderful city but we were exhausted after a day's Smithsonian tour and this hotel provided comfortable beds, friendly staff- Kara, and John O were the best, and a delicious place for snacks and breakfast. The rooms were clean and spacious. The sleep was deep in the comfy clean beds. I would definately return here. You can't go wrong.

I travel to a lot of hotels and this one is fine. The bed is clean and comfortable. The location is close to the Ballston metro (about 4 blocks). The room is quiet even though it is on a busy street. The room is generally clean but would be fabulous if housekeeping paid attention to details. It looks like the edges of the carpet haven't been cleaned in a year and I found trash behind the night stand. If management would increase their standards, then this hotel would be fabulous. Until then, I give it a B+.

This is a full service hotel in a fine location. Ballston is the edge of urban Arlington. You can get a way with leaving your car at the hotel and walking most places from the hotel. Any father out (ie. Falls Church or Tysons ) and transport will be an issue. This hotel has a shuttle that will take you with in a mile for free. The Metro is in the radius son you are good to go.

The hotel was nice and updated. The rooms were fresh and clean. I didn't have to pay to park but it was the weekend so don't know what the weekday deal is. The weekend rate was very reasonable for DC and the best in the Ballston area.

As a runner this hotel is idea and it has access to urban street and the W&O trail system. The Wash-Lee HS track is also near by. A runners paradise.
