Good choice for those refusing to pay the outrageous prices for similar hotels downtown DC, but still would not want to miss out on anything the city has to offer. Its location is very convenient: only 3 blocks from the metro (and a 15 min. ride to downtown), close to the highway to Dulles Airport (30 min. drive) and a...

Our conference supposedly reserved a block of rooms here, but they were all gone for the first night by the time I tried. Stayed the first night in another hotel. I have not stayed in a Holiday Inn for some time, and the level of this hotel was much higher than I expected. It was clean and well appointed with...

I stayed one night at the beginning of April and was pleasantly surprised. I needed to come to Arlington for an interview and this hotel was close to my interview location. I am very picky about places to stay and was wary of this location because I didn't know what to expect. The location is great. I was traveling alone...

This property has no airport shuttle.. but you can catch the Metro (Blue line from DCA to Orange line at Rosslyn). The restaurant was...

This place will never want for business because of its proximity to the National Science Foundation, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, etc., and its easy access to the sights of Washington DC. The rooms and beds are comfortable. (I'm not fond of the belts Holiday Inn puts around its pillows to label their softness, though.) They've torn up their parking...

My family and I enjoyed staying at the Arlington Holiday Inn Hotel. The employees at the Valet parking and front desk gave us a warm welcome. Especially Janet, with her smile and helped make us feel like we were at home. Since Janet has known us for a long time, we are part of her family. Our room was pleasant,...

This is an older property, but well kept. The rooms are clean and comfortable. What makes this a do again for me is the staff. They take care of you, from front side of the house to the back, they work to make your stay better.

Handy location just off I-66 and walk to Ballston Metro. An older property lacking in character or charm, but quite serviceable for a business trip. $12 Valet parking was prompt and courteous.
