Stayed at the Hilton Arlington for business meetings two blocks away and stayed on for a little sightseeing. The location (literally on top of a Metro station) is very convenient. It is 20 minutes from the Capitol and about the same from Arlington Cemetery - easy to get to most anywhere in the area.
The room was generous sized and decently furnished. But the view was of a cluttered roof and the offices across the street. The TV stations are limited. There was no list in the room of hotel amenities - because there really aren't any. No pool, no gym, very limited meeting rooms, and the internet connection and cell phone reception (Verizon for me) are spotty and inconsistent.
The staff is accommodating. The restaurant is OK, but not very populated (at least during the week.) I ate in the bar so as not to be served in solitary splendor in the dining room.
If you take a cab to this Hilton, be sure you know that cabbies refer to it as the Ballston Hilton (for the Metro station and the neigborhood) because there is another one nearby.
