“Expensive - nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

Nothing special - good for city visit and tour, just to have a hotel.
Everything ok, no complaints, but not really comfortable. The prices are much to high, actually not acceptable.
Breakfast buffet good, people helpful.
I won't go again.

I just read your review and was dismayed. I am sorry that we failed to meet your expectations and wondered, if you had a moment, if you could let us know how and why we failed to make a favorable impression (prices, comfort...)? This could be a truly valuable learning experience for us. Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay.

The hotel is located on North Courthouse road and the Mall and other monuments, museums as well as shopping places are pretty nearby. The staff is very helpful. They helped guide us about available tours, timings, restaurant and even called cabs for us immediately. The rooms are decent in size and very clean. Definitely value for money.

We are always happy to hear that we made someone happy. You are so right about our location. We're just a few miles away from DC and within walking distance of some of the area's best restaurants. Stop by the front desk for a map the next time you are with us...we look forward to serving you again.

Spent two weekend nights (October 19-21) at the Hilton Garden Inn-Arlington CourtHouse - my second stay at this location. Check in and out was fast and staff was friendly/professional. Room was very clean and ready at the 3:00 pm checkin time when I arrived. Asked for and received room on a high floor (7th) that faced the front of the hotel. Never heard neighboring rooms (and they were booked) or noise from hallway. All hotel staff encountered greeted me (housekeeping, maintenance, etc.)
Although the breakfast looked good, I opted for simply a pastry and Washington Post from the corner deli ( steps away from hotel but not open Sundays) and the Bayou Coffee Shop (half a block away and opens at 8 on Sundays).
I return to this area several times a year to visit a son who lives in Arlington. The Hilton Garden Inn is now our "go to" place - location is within about a block/block and a half to metro (Orange line) and, if weather is good and you like to walk, you can walk to Clarendon. Many excellent restaurants in the Arlington Court House/Clarendon corridor. I fly into Reagan and can go from plane to hotel in about 45 minutes.
This hotel is a great value in the northern Virginia area - with an excellent, convenient location.

Room Tip: High floor (7 or 8) and odd numbered rooms face the front of the hotel

This was my forst trip to this area. The hotel was very nice and clean. The breafast was awesome. There are a lot of shops and resturants if you are willing to walk a few blocks. There is a whole foods a few blocks away. This hotel sits on a very steep hill. I would stay there again. The hotel shuttle will talk you in a 2 mile radius of the hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights in October. We arrived earlier in the day than expected, they let us check in early and despite the lobby being very busy with a wedding party departing, check in only took a few minutes! loved the 24 hr fresh coffee/tea in lobby along with cookies. nice welcome after a long drive or day sightseeing. parking was easy in the garage,we took the metro into washington, and found it was very easy and convienient to use. we felt safe the entire trip, even at night on the metro and walking the streets. we ate lunch at a sports bar at the corner, and one up the hill for supper one night.Both good and affordable. we didn't eat buffet at hotel, but it smelled good!
we stayed on the 2nd floor, over the garage in front of hotel, and did not find it loud at all. We did not find the air unit any nosier than any other hotel. Hotel was very clean, beds comfy.

I just read your review and I am so happy you found us and enjoyed us. Thankfully, you didn't catch me doing my evening "quality check" on the cookies but next time you're here, feel free to join me.
I look forward to meeting you on your next trip to our city.

helpful staff, from the front desk to the bar. restaurant overall good, bar decent, room very good, price very reasonable for downtown arlington. self-parking in garage beneath the hotel was only $14 per night. really no significant downside.

I was responsible for hosting a series of meetings over 7 days. The hotel went out of its way to accomodate us, and at a price that simply was not heard of in the greater DC area. The hotel is a 5min walk to the Courthouse Metro station on the Orange line, giving us easy access to downtown DC. Hospitality was extremely friendly and accommodating. Front desk and the corporate sales people were incredible. We will definitely seek out this venue for future meetings in DC.

Room Tip: The Irish pub up the street is a great watering hole after a long day of meetings!
