This is a great hotel right in the heart of Arlington VA, and we stayed there for four nights. We took Amtrak to Union Station in D.C. - the cab fare to the hotel was $14 with tip (Metro is cheaper, but we had luggage). The staff was welcoming (so were the cookies). The room was very nice and the housekeeping staff was helpful, as well as the Michael, the Concierge. The Doubletree has 3 internet kiosks in the lobby (FREE) and I never had to wait. The location of the hotel is wonderful -- they have a free shuttle that will take you to the Metro and Pentagon Mall, so it's an EASY access into D.C. Actually, you can walk to both places. In the evening, skip dinner at the lobby restaurants and instead, make sure you go to the SKYDOME - a revolving bar/restaurant on the top floor. Every night there is something going on and it has the most magnificent view of Washington. Don't miss it. Even if you go up for drinks, the view is breathtaking! My only complaint is that on karaoke night, it's smokey (darn VA laws). The pool is on the 14th floor, but is NOT open during the day. VA laws require a lifeguard, so it's open only from 5 to 10 in the evenings (don't know about weekends). If you've never been to D.C., use the METRO to get around OR take the Old Town Trolley, where you can get on and off. I would definitely stay there again and recommend this hotel to others.
