Arlington can seem far from the main sights in Washington DC, but the Rosslyn metro station is a mere 5-minute walk from the hotel and it does not take long to reach downtown in the fast trains. The hotel is located on a hill, which can be an inconvenience if you have luggage. The area is perfectly safe after dark. The front desk staff is helpful but will not go the extra mile to satisfy you.
Got a standard bedroom (2 queens) with breakfast included for $129 per night (w/o tax). Note that I stayed on Thu/Fri/Sat during mid-term campaign so maybe the city was empty and the hotels were cheaper! Extremely clean room, furnished and decorated with style. All standard amenities, plenty of soaps, towels, pillows, etc. Free high-speed internet. Only weird thing was the table on wheels stowed under another table, not very easy to work on that and I did not understand the logic!
Sleep quality gets a 4/5 because you are close to the Reagan airport, directly under the take-off path. Be ready to hear jets roaring every 90 seconds from 6am to 11pm!
The breakfast service was very disorganized. If breakfast is included in the room rate, you can only order certain items from the menu (you order at the counter, there is no buffet, which would have made things simpler!). The waiters seemed rather inexperienced and spoke limited English, which made the breakfast ordering process look like an ordeal. There are some options for lunch & dinner too, which is convenient given that there is not many places to eat around besides a Ruby Tuesday (which I tried and recommend).
I usually don't comment on the lobby, but for once the area was very cosy with comfortable chairs and couches to read, free coffee, books, chimney, etc.
It was disappointing that the hotel did not offer a shuttle service to the Reagan National
airport (about 10 minutes away by cab).
