So I stayed here the weekend of February 25, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The pictures here don't the hotel justice. I felt like the hotel is better looking in person.

Stayed several days for business and hotel was great. It's aged, but clean. Staff is friendly. Convenient shuttle service within a mile. Lots of great restaurants and night spots within walking distance.

It was very nice. Clean, friendly workers, and prompt service. We asked for an extra towel and they made sure we had it right away. The pool is closed for the winter being it's on the second floor outside. We were pleased.

We stayed at this hotel for inauguration week. The hotel was reasonably priced even for such a huge DC event. What I liked about this hotel was the back that it was within easy walking distance (3 blocks) to the Ballston Metro station. This is on the orange line that takes you to the heart of all the main places...

Price was an object and this hotel was more affordable than those that surround it. The positives are the staff is pleasant, the rooms are clean and the location is good for access to downtown Arlington and a nearby Metro Station. The minuses are the very tired decor, average beds and ineffective room temperature control. As an early riser, not...
