Excellent for visiting DC, Metro station is under Hotel, 20 minutes by train and you are in the Smithsonian Museums. The location is perfect for dining and shopping, there is a huge mall five minutes walk away. Kids had fun. Staff was simply great. Definitely recommend, would return.

The hotel has a skeleton staff during the winter holidays and service at the restaurant for breakfast is terrible. You can wait 15 minutes to get a cup of coffee. The hotel was very unresponsive to the problem and let it continue for the length of our stay which was several days.

We stayed at the Hilton Arlington the weekend after Christmas. Hotel is in a great location. Easy walk to many restaurants and shopping. Metro entrance is actually in the hotel, so that couldn't be more convenient. The hotel itself is below my expectations for a Hilton branded hotel. Executive lounge is a joke, so unless upgraded, don't waste your money. Rooms are more fitting with upgraded Hampton Inn than a Hilton. If you are looking for good location and won't be in the hotel much, good choice. If looking for a higher grade hotel experience, look else where.

Staff was min, they kept saying it's a holiday weekend. Was after Christmas and before New Years. Other than that just OK, not what I expected from a Hilton. Breakfast we had to go into kitchen to find someone (was to start at 6:30, this was 8:00). But besides short staffed in Bar and restraint, everything else ok.

Nice Hilton situated on the outskirts of Washington in Arlington. It is not quite as big as I had imagined as the hotel only occupies the first 7 floors of the building which is shown on the website so the views were not as spectacular as I had envisioned. But it is located right outside the metro so you do not have to carry your bags too far.

Checkin was fine and allocated room on the 6th floor. It was good sized,clean and well appointed. Beds were super comfortable and the bathroom the usual Hilton style, clean and tidy. Breakfast was served on the mezzanine floor through the bar area. There was also a little exec lounge with a few soft drinks and snacks past all the bar tables it your room key allowed you in. It was adequate but nothing special unfortunately.

The only downside was the travelling time on the metro into DC at the weekend. We sometimes had to wait up to 18 minutes if we missed a train. It soon bit into our vacation time when trying to get back to the hotel or downtown. During the week it was fine, only a few minutes wait but perhaps something to consider if you are on a short weekend trip. Nice to pop over to Cheesecake Factory at Clarendon which was 2 stops away. There are a few bars and restaurants near the hotel but being a tourist you want to eat downtown. Founding Fathers was surprisingly good and well priced as was Old Ebbitts Grill which was full of charm and a delight.

I truly enjoyed staying at the Arlington Hilton. The location is amazing. Access to shops, restaurants and the subway were excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The cost of Internet and parking are ridiculous, but putting it as part of my room fee helped. Overall a great experience.
