“Great hotel choice in Arlington”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

I've stayed at this hotel several times over the last few years, and I was quite satisfied. The hotel is located conveniently near a Metro station, and within walking distance from many restaurants, pubs, and coffee shops. The rooms are spacious, and the in house restaurant provides good and healthy food choices for breakfast. The staff has always been friendly. This time however, I noticed a significant improvement in staff attitude. The level of friendliness and cooperation has increased even further. You can see it very clearly when the food services manager walks from table to table during breakfast to ask if the guests are satisfied, and suggests various options for the guests to try. The event coordinator check personally if the participants are happy with the arrangements. Front desk staff remember your name, wish you a productive day, and ask you how your day was upon your return. This is well beyond what one would expect at a mid-level hotel. Clearly, this is a great hotel choice for visitors in Arlington or Washington DC.

Use of the toilet in the room resulted in burns on both legs. From onset of incident, the staff listened empathetically yet did not follow through on incident report, request to GM for a phone reply, and no offer of satisfaction guarantee option. Very disappointing. The AC did not turn off or have temperature control.

First off the hotel is ok, but as other reviewers state it's nothing spectacular (Two years of awards not withstanding). Our room's ac (517) struggled to keep the room cool and the weather during our stay was only in the mid 80's (July 11-13). Hallways were like a sauna. Parking is very tight. We had a three day reservation, and our plans changed. I spoke with a desk clerk on Thursday night and was told it should not be a problem. When leaving on Saturday I was told by the desk clerk that we would have to pay through Sunday, that once a reservation is made there are no refunds. I didn't see that on the website. I have stayed hundreds of nights at many, many Hilton properties over the years and never been made to feel that my concerns were less important than I was here. I spoke with the on duty manager Karan Alzaro and she stated that she would take care of the issue. Well, I'm still waiting.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the elevator are quieter.

I just read your feedback form and I am alarmed to hear about the a/c and the challenge you faced cutting your stay short.
I am sure Karam took care of you but I would need your name so I can double check. Please give me a call at your earliest convenience and I will see if i can help.

This hotel at one time was very good, I had stayed there back in '07 and had a good stay. Rooms are average, but with comfortable beds. The a/c unit in our room struggled to keep the room comfortable. I had a problem that I spoke to a desk clerk about and was assured was handled. It wasn't. When checking out the desk clerk was rude and un-helpful. I spoke with the manager who in a very brief and dismissive way told me she would correct a billing issue "after" I left. My mistake - I should never have left because she never addressed the issue. There are much better choices in Arlington - stay away!

I am so very sorry to hear how badly we let you down. I am especially curious to hear more about your interaction with the FD because rudeness/abruptness is something I do not tolerate.
I am available to you anytime you wish to speak to me and I look forward to your call.

Staying in Arlington rather than the District can have distinct advantages. The Hilton Garden is situated a couple of blocks from the Metro by Courthouse and is a real gem. Lots of eateries of every price level nearby and a very friendly, efficient staff. One minor A/C problem was fixed almost before I got back to my room from working out. Very clean and quiet.

My husband and I stayed two nights in the hotel to attend a work event. DC hotels can be extremely expensive. I tend to stay in Arlington in general because it is away from the touristy area, but still easily accessible by metro.
The staff was very friendly upon welcoming us to the hotel. The evening front desk man gave us some great tips for restaurants in the area. And the day time front desk woman gave us some tips about using the metro.
The metro stop is really close. On Saturday mornings there is a great farmers market and flea market between the hotel and metro stop.
The room itself was clean and spacious, more than I had expected for the price. The hallways were definitely hot, but my AC worked fine.
I would stay here again, between the price, the location and the staff, you can't beat it.

Very clean hotel with a accommodating front desk staff. Beds are comfortable. Our only complaint was the parking garage - it was a little tight and fills up quickly (they still had 2 places so we did not ask about alternative parking.) Metro is within walking distance, as are several restaurants. Good buy for the. Price that we paid on Priceline.
