“Great location”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights at this location because it was close to friends we were visiting. I have to say that the customer service was fantastic from the bellmen and the front desk, very helpful and informative. The room for one being a one king bed was really big. 2 things that needed some help: the bathroom shower was super small! I am 5'9 and my husband 6'2 and I felt super cramped in the shower ..I was taller than the shower head( kinda weird since the room was so big you would think the bathroom would be a little roomier) The 2nd thing was the AC was really loud when it would turn on and off throughout the night. Other than those 2 things this Hilton was super convenient being by the metro and of course can't beat the Starbucks downstairs.

Once again, the Hilton Arlington did not disappoint. On the first floor there is a full service Starbucks, a deli, and the entrance to the Ballston Metro station. We hopped the metro, and took it right into DC to all of the attractions. This was effortless. Didn't even have to change trains. Stayed on the orange line the entire time. We were on the club floor which included breakfast in a special area of the hotel's only restaurant. There were scrambled eggs, sausages, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal and good coffee. In addition, there was a special menu to order eggs benedict and some other items. From 5-7 pm there are food offerings included, but we were not there to try any. Right across the street on one corner is a 24hr IHOP. On the other corner is a Wells Fargo Bank. A few blocks up the street is Ballston Corner, a mall with a Macys, ice arena, Victorias Secret, Panera, food court and CVS. We did not walk to this. I thought it was kind of far. It is very conceivable that if you stay at this hotel you do not need a car. If you have a car though, be aware there is no valet parking. The parking for the hotel is underground, and is all self-service. There is a bell man for the hotel. Both bell men we used were friendly. In fact, all of the staff at this hotel were extremely friendly and courteous. I would not stay anywhere else but this hotel when I am in DC or the surrounding area. The room itself was very quiet. Even though we overlooked the street we heard no noises from outside. The bed was quite comfortable. Our club room came with two robes. The refrigerator is actually in the dresser, so it was kind of hidden. There is also a coffee maker. The bathroom is all in one, on the smaller side. As part of my Hilton status, the internet service was complimentary. I gave the hotel a 4 star review mainly because there is no valet parking and honestly, I do not like the underground garage thing. I would not let this be a deterrent, but even though I always felt safe, I don't think I would want to be in the garage late at night alone. Thanks once again Hilton for a great stay.

The bed was fabulous. It was so comfortable, I did not want to get out. It is very convenient for the metro. The staff was very friendly and the hotel VERY clean. I loved it. It's only downfall was no free internet.

Excellent service and terrific location! I always stay here when I travel to NSF or NIH meetings. The staff are efficient and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and always clean! Food is good and the choice of options are excellent. The hotel is connected to the subway and to a local mall. The hotel is also connected to NSF. Food is much better in the hotel than at most locat eateries which makes it easy to get a good meal at the end of a hard work day.

This hotel is very convenient to the Metro and to the Office of Naval Research in Ballston. The amenities are consistent with Hilton. For some reason I was put up on the 7th, executive floor which included a nice breakfast. I asked for, and was graciously given the ability to stay until 1:00 which helped with my schedule of meetings for the day. I would definitely return for additional meetings in the Ballston area.

We stayed here on a family trip to Washington, DC. The hotel is very convenient to Washington with the Ballston Metro stop steps away and easy driving distance as well. The hotel is clean and well furnished. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Hilton Arlington for a family vacation to the DC area. This location was so great. Right at the Ballston Metro station and across from the mall which had movie theaters. We did have the club level rooms which included morning breakfast. That was wonderful for a family so we didn't have to hunt for breakfast before heading out for the day. On Tuesday evening, there was a free happy hour mixer which we enjoyed every minute of. The staff in the club room were all excellent. The front desk was helpful on directions. The only slight complaint I could find is the air conditioning in the room was loud but it wasn't a big deal. We walked to dinner a few nights with great restaurants near the hotel. We met the general manager at the mixer, and he was friendly and engaging. We would stay here again if we ever visit the DC area again.

Room Tip: The club level was worth it for us to have the complimentary breakfast.
