Moved here after spending one night at the Holiday Inn. The desk clerk was very helpful and the rooms were clean. The dining room where the FREE breakfast was served was also open in the evening for menu-ordering dinner. This hotel also has a FREE shuttle to the nearest subway station.

My husband I have stayed at this hotel several times while visiting our daughter in Arlington. The last visit was two weeks ago. The hotel is easy to access, parking is free, and there is an hourly shuttle to the metro station- making this hotel a viable option for those visiting DC who don't want to pay the exorbitant prices...

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and with our AAA discount, the room rate was excellent. The rooms are spacious and the location very close to the Ballston stop on the Orange and Silver Metro line. Everyone was friendly and the location was very clean. We would stay here again.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of rooms after our not so happy stay at comfort Inn Orlando. This one was spacious and clean. Full marks as far as the rooms are concerned. I felt the breakfast could have been better

This hotel is a great location for the traveler that wants to spend most of their time in downtown DC. The breakfast was good and the room was ok. Everyday I would come back from the cleaning crew being in there i would still find cups and straws that we didn't even use on the floor under the side of... More

It's a real comfortable hotel, with nice basic facilities. They have hourly shuttles till the metro. Breakfast is basic but nice. Also if the difference of prices is too much between hotels near union station and china town. This hotel is very far from the union station which has maximum sight seeing tours bus stops.

Very Clean hotel, rooms are a nice size, beds were super comfy. Only ate breakfast one day, wasn't to my liking. They have a waffle maker, cereal, eggs, sausage, and pastries. Harris Teeter Market 4 mins away with car. Clean and safe neighborhood will stay again.
