Red Lion Hotel Rosslyn Iwo Jima

Reviewed November 21, 2013

During my stay at this location the wifi would only connect sporadically and was so slow that using it was nearly impossible. When I told the desk clerk this I was told, "Yeah it's like that sometimes." They were supposed to have someone check it, but there was no improvement after the second day so I just gave up on trying to use it. Also, a friend who was traveling for the same seminar as I was missed a connecting flight due to weather. He was told by the airline that he would be able to catch a later flight but was later told that it would be the next morning before he could get a flight into D.C. He called the hotel as soon as he found this out only to be told that he would be charged for the room even though he wasn't going to arrive until the next day. After he called and told me this I went and spoke to the desk clerk and was told that he was going to be charged for the room even though it wasn't his fault and he hadn't been told he would not be there until after the cancellation time. I stayed here in the past and the staff and hotel were much better. One bright point was Ledo's Pizza, GREAT Italian food and GREAT staff!

This place was perfect! I wanted to stay in the DC Metro area for a decent price, close to a Metro station and found it!
A 7 minute walk from the Rosslyn Metro station.
Building and bedrooms were perfect, clean.
Free parking.
Stayed there for 4 nights.
Would definetly consider it again when going to the DC area.

Very good price for the area as far as value received and location. Adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery ( could have walked to Cemetery Visitors Center) We did walk to the Metro station. Would stay here again. Very good breakfast. Everything met our expectations except service in the bar/lounge; needed experienced personnel.

Appreciated the location being close to Metro and seeming safe neighborhood.Had been concerned that the price being less than many area hotels I would be disappointed. However, the building was clean, in good repair and although a bus load of teens checked in my second night, I slept without any sound disturbance.

I bring a school group to DC every year. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is a 2.5 block walk to the Rosslyn metro station, so we don't have to drive or park in DC. It is also walking distance to the Iwo Jima Memorial. The rooms and exterior are a bit dated, but not too bad. There is no free breakfast, but breakfast is available in the on-site restaurant. It's the best priced hotel within walking distance of a metro station that I have found.

My daughter booked this and apologized profusely before I arrived so, having read some of the reviews on tripadvisor, I expected the worst.
The good and the bad of it:
It was clean, quiet and in a decent neighborhood.
The bathroom had a white toilet bowl, blue tank, beige tub white sink and yellow tile on the wall, white on the floor.
The walk to Metro was easy and the staff was accommodating.
Soooo, it was fine since we were only there late at night to sleep and clean up in the AM.

Room Tip: Held the luggage in their office since there was and "in between" days in DC trip to NYC...

I was not sure if I wanted to stay at this hotel because of some of the reviews that I read but since I really just needed a place to sleep while we spent the day sight seeing i thought I would take a chance. The location is good and it is about an easy 8 minute walk to the Metro. The neighborhood felt safe so even walking back to the hotel at night was not a worry. There really are not too many places to eat around the hotel. We only ate once at the restaurant at the hotel but the service was so slow (45 minutes to get toast and an egg) that we deiced to not eat there again. Instead we stayed on the Metro after out day in DC and got off at Clarendon Metro stain. Here there were plenty of eating options such as The Cheescake Factory and also there is a Whole Foods where we bought food for breakfast. There is also some nice shops to go shopping. Although the hotel does not have a shuttle it was only a $10.00 cab ride and well worth it. We were in DC for 5 days and bought a Smart Card and loaded it with the $35 7-day pass. Well worth it! It was nice to not have to worry about looking for change and they charge an extra $1 each time you but a paper ticket.
