We stayed here in mid-April with our 2 grandchildren on our first time in D.C., and the staff was outstanding---very friendly and helpful. Muhammed soon became our grandkids "new best friend" as he explained the area and took us to the metro a couple of times as well as to the mall nearby. Our only disappointment came when we discovered...

I stayed at this hotel from April 30 to May 5, 2012. The staff at the front desk greeted me warmly and were extremely helpful, very kind and courteous. Check-in was a breeze. The hotel lobby was very clean. We took the elevator up to our room which was also very clean. After reading previous reviews about the wake-up call,...

I have to commend all of the staff members at the Holiday Inn at Ballston. Whether it was the valet, the front desk staff, the waitresses, or other staff within the building, each was courteous and cordial, and each appeared to be truly interested in helping me enjoy my stay. Each year I travel to Arlington over the Mother's Day...

The restaurant and lounge have been remodeled since my last visit, and I was exceptionally pleased with the menu and quality of the food. I ate the majority of my evening meals there and was not disappointed by any of my selections. The wine list is good, as well. Martha and Luis are true professionals and provided excellent service during...

Every year in May, I stay for four nights and five days to attend a conference. I have been doing this for the last three years.

The location is in Ballston; an area of Arlington which built itself up, literally, into office buildings and condos. Parking is $12 and valet because they are rebuilding the parking lot. I was not charged for using the valet so parking remained at $12/night. Then I received a voucher from the front desk giving me various discounts to pick from...

I was here for training and the hotel was a block from my classes. Nice hotel, located near a shopping mall and many restaraunts. Parking was a little bit of a hassle as it was valet parking (and kind of expensive for the location). I needed my car early one day for a meeting (6:30 am) and hadn't thought to...

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...
