“If you are TDY in DC, this is the one!”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

I'm a frequent government visitor to DC and have tried everything. From Crystal City, to National Harbor, Roslyn, Alexandria, downtown -- you name it. I finally went and just searched for "free parking" because I was tired of getting gouged for $30 a day for parking at most close in hotelsn and ran across this Hilton Garden in in Shirlington. This is going to be my DC hotel from now forward. Free parking in the garage next door, GREAT/free breakfast which includes omelets, french toast, pancakes and everything you can imagine, nice indoor pool, decent work out room, a supermarket right across the street, movie theater within a block, and probably 20-30 restaurants with a couple of minutes walk. Free shuttle to the metro. Super friendly staff, fast internet, clean rooms, guest laundry. It sort of sounds like I'm a spokesman for Hilton, but I'm not. Just happy I've finally found a hotel inside the beltway which seems to have it all.

Travel often but rarely leave reviews, however our visit to this hotel was a great experience. The staff is exceptional and was very willing to assist with all requests with a special thank you to Musa at the front desk. The facility was very well maintained and the breakfast buffet was a step above most you find at other Hilton Garden Inns. The only drawback to this hotel is that the closet metro stop isn’t within walking distance. Fortunately the hotel provides a free shuttle that will take you back and forth as needed.

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Shirlington for two weeks this spring while I was on a business trip. I had to book last minute, so this wasn't my first choice for hotel, it was just one of the only ones available at the time. However, I was pleasantly surprised! The staff were awesome and the area is quiet and friendly, with many delicious restaurants within walking distance and a grocery store literally across the street. Also, the hotel shuttle will drive you to or pick you up from ANYWHERE within a 5-mile radius of the hotel!!! This was the best for me, as it meant I didn't have to take the bus everyday to and from work. If you do want to take the bus, though, there are many stops right nearby. Shuttle drivers Kay and Pete were absolutely the best!

I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Arlington. Overall, it was clean, comfortable, and accomodating. And don't forget the never-ending supply of free cookies in the lobby!

A business hotel that is also perfect for a city trip Washington DC. Nice, big rooms. Nice beds, nice bathroom. Clean. Good service. very very nice was the shuttle to the metro station, on demand. Perfect, Breakfast was not included and expensive but there is a supermarket in front of the hotel with fresh bread.
Nice stay

Based on other reviews we stayed here for 3 nights while in the DC area and loved it. It's quiet, new, and in a great neighborhood. The rooms are very large and the bed was wonderful. Bonus...those warm cookies they offer every afternoon...yummy! The hotel shuttle will take you to the metro at Pentagon City and from there it's an easy ride to the Mall or anywhere you want to go. They also will pick you up at National Airport. We never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a ride. Within 2 blocks you will find probably 30 restaurants offering every kind of ethnic food you could want. We had dinner at the Carlyle the 1st night of our visit and it was so delicious we went back again the last night of our stay...don't miss it. They also own the bakery next door and we had a fabulous breakfast croissant there one day. The next time we're in DC we'll definitely stay here.

This is a nice hotel, good location and nice staff in Front Desk. My main compliant is on the AC, due to the LEED certification of the hotel AC is limited on how low it goes on the temperature scale (67F) and takes time to cool the room. This may be fine for an office building, but after being under the sun and walking all over DC, you may want to have a cooler environment at night for sleeping. The other issue was the breakfast, french toast were just not cooked almost a liquid core....vegetables on omelette were just the worse we had in any hotel breakfast. In summary, if AC and breakfast are not an issue, this is a good option.

We were in DC for a weekend and we've chosen this hotel as it offers free parking and free wifi internet. We totally have no regrets staying in this hotel as it is just perfect for a weekend getaway. All staffs from front desk to cleaning to bar to breakfast staffs are all very professional and friendly. There is a supermarket right in front of the hotel and many good restaurants and facilities (library, post office) around the hotel, all within walking distance. Even though the parking to the hotel is not connected to the hotel, it's really not too far walking to the hotel from the parking garage. Love their free shuttle to the nearest metro station (Pentagon City) and there's actually a bus stop right at the side of the hotel. We've not taken the bus but I believe they do take you to the nearest metro station. Rooms are clean and the bed is EXTREMELY comfortable. The lap pool is pretty small but it's compensated with the jacuzzi hot tub and the nice little gym. Would definitely stay here again for the next visit!
