Red Lion Hotel Rosslyn Iwo Jima
Ranked #32 of 52 Hotels in Arlington
Reviewed 3 December 2013

The other reviewers are right about the location and price. Most Best Western's have breakfast, but this does not. It is a 5-8 min. walk to metro and as a solo female at night it's a bit daunting even thought the quiet neighborhood is good. In the summer, no problem. I brought some take out back to hotel so that I wouldn't have to walk at night. The pool is heated, but the door to the cold outdoors was open so the air was uncomfortably cold. I declined. There are only four machines in the fitness room and I did not see any weights. I'm familiar with equipment, but could not get levers and adjustments to work. The attendant is occupied at the busy front desk upstairs. Room was clean and comfy. Would stay again. Eleven mins. to airport after the walk and one stop to Foggy Bottom and two to White House area. Since there is no train switching, it is actually faster than staying in some parts of DC itself. Staff very nice. Dwight especially helpful. Inviting lobby. Try to get and interior corridor room. It is quieter and in cold weather, warmer.

Room Tip: Get an interior corridor room

Just back from Washington D.C., spent three nights in this hotel. The hotel is a mid- priced hotel, close to a metro station (ROSSLYN),which is about 5 minutes walk away. The hotel is well kept, free WI-FI and the staff are very friendly and helpful . The only thing missing in the hotel is breakfast in the morning which a lot of Best Western hotels offer. There is a restaurant next to the hotel ,Would consider staying in this hotel again if I was in Washington.

Just spent one night here while visiting Washington, D.C. My room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Hotel is reasonably priced and located very close- within walking distance- to major attractions in D.C. The only thing missing is a breakfast, which most hotels seem to provide these days. However, there is a restaurant right next door that has excellent food. Hotel has plenty of free parking- in the lot or in their garage. I will definitely return here next time I am in Washington D.C. Highly recommended.

During my stay at this location the wifi would only connect sporadically and was so slow that using it was nearly impossible. When I told the desk clerk this I was told, "Yeah it's like that sometimes." They were supposed to have someone check it, but there was no improvement after the second day so I just gave up on trying to use it. Also, a friend who was traveling for the same seminar as I was missed a connecting flight due to weather. He was told by the airline that he would be able to catch a later flight but was later told that it would be the next morning before he could get a flight into D.C. He called the hotel as soon as he found this out only to be told that he would be charged for the room even though he wasn't going to arrive until the next day. After he called and told me this I went and spoke to the desk clerk and was told that he was going to be charged for the room even though it wasn't his fault and he hadn't been told he would not be there until after the cancellation time. I stayed here in the past and the staff and hotel were much better. One bright point was Ledo's Pizza, GREAT Italian food and GREAT staff!

This place was perfect! I wanted to stay in the DC Metro area for a decent price, close to a Metro station and found it!
A 7 minute walk from the Rosslyn Metro station.
Building and bedrooms were perfect, clean.
Free parking.
Stayed there for 4 nights.
Would definetly consider it again when going to the DC area.

Very good price for the area as far as value received and location. Adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery ( could have walked to Cemetery Visitors Center) We did walk to the Metro station. Would stay here again. Very good breakfast. Everything met our expectations except service in the bar/lounge; needed experienced personnel.

Appreciated the location being close to Metro and seeming safe neighborhood.Had been concerned that the price being less than many area hotels I would be disappointed. However, the building was clean, in good repair and although a bus load of teens checked in my second night, I slept without any sound disturbance.
