“Great Stay at the Holiday Inn in Arlington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

As always, I enjoyed my recent 3-day stay at the Holiday Inn at Arlington. Folks like Mohamed who is a concierge and Roberto, who works in the lounge make this a friendly, professional, cheerful and relaxing place in the Washington, DC area. Both of these guys epitomize professionalism in greeting guests, and always say "Welcome Back" and " Good to See You Again!". After flying all the way from Alaska, it is great to arrive in a hotel where you are recognized and appreciated. Well done! It's why I come here plus the front counter folks are great, the maintenance worker jumped on an a/c problem and fixed it within hours - even going so far as to replace the unit while I was in my meeting. Wow! And finally the breakfast buffet is great! Well done again Holiday Inn! This is why I keep coming back.

Room Tip: I like the higher floors just to ensure a bit more quiet.

....and have always been satisfied with the staff, the cleanliness of the rooms, the breakfast (not included), even the gift shop. One summer visit we enjoyed the rooftop pool, as well. The only off-putting experience is the hefty price we have to pay for parking. We are club members and a review I read earlier this year stated that because these people were members, they were given 1/2 off the parking price. When we checked in the end of March, I inquired about it at the front desk and was told in a huffy voice that I was mistaken, no exceptions, no discount for Holiday Inn members. I had proof because I had printed out the review....but it wasn't worth it....on our next visit, we'll try the Holiday Inn Express in Rosslyn where the parking is free and a breakfast is included. We had been a regular guest of this Holiday Inn for a dozen or so years....but we've decided to spread our wings and give another Holiday Inn nearby a chance on our next visit to the DC area.

We stayed here on a whim on our drive back from Florida on July 4th. It was very clean, well priced, and the location (with DC fireworks in mind) was excellent. The staff were the best part of our stay. They were very helpful in advising our family of the best way to view the fireworks, and DC transpiration. They were also very helpful when we needed help with our room air conditioner.
We had a king bed room with a pullout couch. These rooms seem to be located adjacent to the wall of the ice machine and elevators on each floor. I was a little nervous that we would hear noise through the wall due to this placement, but we did not. The room worked perfectly for us. The proximity of this hotel to nice restaurants is convenient, and the Metro station is in walking distance. There was also ample parking connected to the rear entrance of the hotel lobby.

Stayed there for one night, found the staff to be courteous, and the room to be clean. Finishes could use updated for the prices that were charged. Stopped by the bar for a night-cap - decent beverage selection at reasonable prices.

I was visiting Washington on business for 5 days I conveniently arrived 4 short blocks from the hotel by metro direct to from the airport.
The lobby is a great place to work and the rooftop pool made for a relaxing get away.
I enjoyed one of the best omelettes I have ever had in the onsite restaurant My only complaint was in my first room the AC was spotty but the folks at the front desk (who were friendly and professional) immediately transferred me and everything was fine.
Summary; I enjoyed the area Arlington Memorial Cemetery and other historical monuments a short metro ride away and the staff was exceptional

Went there for a 2 nights stay with 2 kids. Room needs renovation but was clean. Perfect location, quick walk to the metro and lots of things around. very friendly staff. Nice pool with lifeguards. Take note you have to pay for parking. Beds were comfortable.

I visited HI Ballston with thew family.for vacation.
Good place and easy to take metro to Washington.
Prices are reasonable but for breakfast you have to pay (even if you are platinum level...). This was OK as the variety around for food is great.
Quite place and clean.the view from the room is limited even if you face to the main street.
The hotel stuff are smiley and welcoming.

Room Tip: Close to the metro (10 minutes walk)
