Hilton Garden Inn Arlington/Shirlington
Ranked #6 of 52 Hotels in Arlington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 2, 2010

This fairly new Hilton Garden Inn is conveniently located right around the corner from the trendy downtown Shirlington/Arlington. This was our third stay at this location. Free parking in a garage right across the street. Staff is friendly and helpful. Fresh cookies every afternoon!! You can walk to all the restaurants and shops and return to a quiet night's stay. In nice weather, you can sit outside on their patio and enjoy a drink or snack.

Stayed there for a week long vacation and had a great time. Walking distance to a variety of restaurants and transportation into DC. Hotel was relatively new and in great condition. Very clean. Serve a very nice breakfast. Suite had plenty of room and beds were excellent.

We stayed here November 11-14.
Pros:Our room was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff were genuinely nice and the restaurant staff were extremely personable! We loved having the mini fridge and microwave in the room-especially with little ones! There were several restaurants within walking distance and a great grocery store a stone's throw from the hotel! The free parking was a great bonus for the DC area. We also took advantage of the hotel's free shuttle to the metro station and it was wonderful. The shuttle picked us up in front of the hotel, dropped us off at the metro station and when we returned to the station, we called the front desk and the shuttle was there to bring us back to the hotel within 15 minutes!
(Tiny) Con: The hotel's pool is minuscule and doesn't open until 5pm on weekdays so the kids missed out on a bit of pool time...

Spent one night there. Hotel very clean, great breakfast buffet and very friendly staff. BUT we had reserved one more night there and came back from our day out to find bed bugs. We always are in the habit of checking whatever hotel we stay in and that night before retiring into bed, we found approx seven small bugs on the sheet at the bottom of the bed. I immediately brought it to the attention of the desk attendant. The front desk person was extremely apologetic, stated that this was the first time this had ever happened, offered to change our room immediately and could not have been more accomodating. However, I decided that it was in our best interest to check out of the hotel at that point. We were not charged for that night and he stated that this would be taken care of. When we left there was a maintenance tech there who was checking rooms already. What I had to remember was that this was not a cleanliness issue as this is sweeping across our nation. However, I will not be traveling for some time thank goodness.

Thank you for your comments and concerns, we take your feedback very seriously. After your departure we had your rooms completely inspected by Ecolab Pest Control and they found no evidence of infestation of “bed bugs”.We are not suggesting that you didn’t find some bugs, but wanted to clarify that what you found was not “bed bugs".

Sincerely,

Carlos Abelende
General Manager

One block from wonderful resteruants and cute shopping
Free garage parking!!
Staff ok
Shuttle will take you to metro stop, easy access to public buses
Only a few miles from DC
Netrogena products in the bathrooms
Fridge and microwave in rooms
Quiet rooms
The busniess center had five computers and tons of shipping supplies (the hotel mails items for you)

Cons:
Small narrow pool
Shuttle is very limited

When we checked in the desk staff was less than friendly, but luckily for the remainder of our stay the staff was great! The shuttle ran in the morning once per hour and had very limited space.

Stayed in at the Hilton Garden Inn in Shirlington while searching for housing for a new job. We stayed using points, so I have no idea about the general value of the room. However I can comment on our experience, and it was a good one! It looks like a brand new hotel in a little "village" that includes a grocery store, movie theatre, and tons of restaurants. Across the street is a nice walking path as well. Breakfast was good, although I'm not sure if we would have paid for it (got it free with vouchers). We also loved the free cookies in the evenings. The only downside is that the hotel is not in walking distance of the metro, although they do have a shuttle to take you to the metro if you would like. A metrobus stop is also close by. If you are driving, 395 is very close by and easy to get onto. We liked the hotel and the area it is in so much that we have decided to live close by!
