It was very conveniently located for my purposes. You can walk to have your meals. You can also eat in hotel. I had breakfast at hotel which I enjoyed. Had a Thai dinner close by and that was very good. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would stay there again.

I found myself settling for the Holiday Inn in Arlington, VA, because all other hotel options were unavailable. The front desk staff was accommodating but not friendly, and offered no information regarding the availability of a restaurant, exercise facility or parking. I asked about breakfast. Staff replied in a negative tone that the buffet was no longer offered. The lobby... More

I recently stayed at this hotel and was an overall good experience. It has several restaurants within walking distance and a mall nearby. The hotel itself provided clean and spacious room with a nice cold AC. Price was reasonable to area and would recommend if looking for a nice place to stay while in Arlington. It's not as close to...

Pros: This HI is probably one of the cleanest I've been in. Beds are good, not as firm as I'd like, but that's me. Breakfast from the menu in the restaurant was very good. Keurig in the room, as well as a fridge (why no microwave, while you're at it?). Close to the metro (4 blocks). Cons: Drinks in the... More

Clean. Good place to stay if you want to pay less and just Uber or take the metro over to the sites in DC. Most hotels that I have provide coffee and newspapers in the lobby but this one does not. There was also no breakfast provided. Not that every hotel does but it is nice that many do. My... More

We used our points to stay here while traveling back from Rhode Island. We wanted to spend a day in DC and also didn't want to stay downtown.

A very convenient place to stay which is within walking distance of the DC metro & also close to a nice shopping area. The only problem was that they also charge 14 dollars to park the automobile in a (gated) open parking lot behind the hotel.

Stayed two nights for business. Staff was helpful and responsive. Location was fine for Arlington. Plenty of nearby restaurants. $15 Uber to DCA. Room was large and comfortable. Pool was located on second floor roof; a bit small, but still very nice during a DC June. Restaurant was above average. Solid business- class hotel. Will return.
