Red Lion Hotel Rosslyn Iwo Jima
Ranked #33 of 52 Hotels in Arlington
Reviewed June 22, 2011

We went on a sightseeing trip to DC and this hotel was perfect for our needs. Cheap, cheerful, clean, secure and close to the city centre.
Staff were helpful, parking was easy and free , close to the metro and lots of bus stops. Used the attached restaurant for evening meals and breakfast which was value for money with excellent service.

We stayed here during our recent trip to washington DC. The hotel is in a good location for visiting the city. Walking distance to the Iwo jima memorial and arlington national cemetary. The room was clean and tidy. Although under the airport flight path and on a main road this noise disappeared overnight was so never a problem. we generally walked across the river to washington only ever using the metro a couple of times but it is within easy walking distance from the hotel to the station. There weree some lovely places to eat in arlington. The recpetion staff were friendly and helpful although they did place a hold of $20 on my credit card for incidental charges to the room which they did not tell me about and I had to chase the refund. Apart from the disappointing credit card charge which i discovered after I was home the stay was nice.

We found the Best Western Rosslyn/Iwo Jima to have all the things we look for when traveling. It was very clean and nicely appointed, with a wonderful little restaurant on the property. We also found something that is not always found these days in the person of a young lady named Kristin. We were totally unfamiliar with the DC area, and she went out of her way to help us find a drug store, a nearby service station, and a tour company, as well as our way out of town when we checked out. Thanks again Kristin, you helped make our visit a pleasant one that we will remember for a long time.

There was no Fox news on the TV. It was an option, but was not available. The room was hot and did not cool well. There was no hot water in the morning. No airport shuttle. They gave me a room on the main road side lower level and i even reserved a high room. They said it was not available. Terrible hotel for the extreme price. The only reason I stayed here was the company mandated it. I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

Booked this hotel for the 2 queens, free parking, pool, wifi , fridge and microwave these are what we wanted close to dc but not IN dc. It worked well for us and we had a good stay.
We got back late one night and ordered from the on site restaurant and that was fine. We were not in the main hotel so our car was right outside our door which worked perfectly. We could take a short drive over to the Iwo Jima and Arlington cemetary or go down to Alexandria 20" The only downside for us was the shower , it was a little touchy going too hot then too cold Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it .
