Hilton Garden Inn Arlington/Shirlington
Ranked #6 of 52 Hotels in Arlington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 December 2013

I stayed at the Garden Inn for a second time. Checking in was nice and easy once again. Front desk staff was great each time I needed something or had a question. Polite and professional. Parking located across street in parking garage for free on 4th floor. Never had problem with parking or walking to and from car. The location of the hotel is very cute. Lots of little shops and restaurants, coffee shops to choose from if you don't want to eat at hotel. Their is a library, supermarket (Harris teeter), movies also set in this little "village." The hotel had different waters (in large jars), granola type cookie bars, and coffee/tea in lobby daily. There is a small indoor swimming pool open from 10-10 on weekends and after 5 pm during week. Towels are provided in pool area. Business center has 3 desk tops with free printing and faxes. You can also hit print from your room laptop and print downstairs. Another perk is free shuttle. It will take you anywhere within a five mile radius and drops and picks up at metro stations going into DC landmarks. Also pick up drop off to airport. Now the room itself was ok nothing fancy - served its purpose. It was clean. Beds are adjustable (adjustment button on each side of the bed). They are adjustable to go from firm to "soft" but didn't become soft really. Rooms have mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker which was nice. The water pressure was good also in the bathroom. The toiletries are from neutrogena. Room service is reasonably priced...most expensive item was $20 for a steak. Overall it was a good stay for the price and location. Would I stay there again? yes I would.

I arrived early, around noon, after a very long trip and was hopeful to get any room close to my profile. While looking for parking I drove around the hotel twice but found no handicap parking immediately adjacent to the hotel. The closest parking other than being on the street, if you are lucky enough to find a vacant spot, is a multi-level garage approximately 100 yards from the Hilton entrance. I found out later the hotel has the 4th level reserved and provides guests with a permit to hang on the rear view mirror. There are two elevators at each end of the garage. After dragging my bags from the garage to the lobby I was preparing for a fight about arriving early.

The front desk clerk gave me a wonderful welcome greeting and when asked if a room was available replied with one word that was music to my ears, “Absolutely”. The room exactly matched my profile and was one of the more spacious that I’ve stayed in recently. Refrigerator, coffee, maker, excellent Wi-Fi access, plenty of unused plug outlets near the bed, and the bathroom was very nice and most importantly clean. The room furnishings were modern and in good condition. No dust on the HVAC vent and the windows were spotless.

Surrounding the hotel all types of restaurants everything from a micro-brewery, sports pubs to fine linen table cloth choices. There is a public library, performing arts theater, movie theater, and even a grocery store, ALL within a few hundred yards of the hotel front door.

Despite the less than ideal parking arrangement, although free, the overall stay was very pleasant. You cannot beat the nearby restaurant choices compared to other properties SW of DC.

Room Tip: Hotel Parking is on the 4th level of the nearby garage

We used this hotel for guests for my daughters wedding in April 2013. Everyone raved about it.The location is perfect in Shirlington. It was easy to get to the city and the airport. We also used it for the rehearsal dinner. We stay there everytime we come to visit our daughter!

This hotel is a gem with efficient, kind, and friendly staff. The location in Shirlington is fun, close to DC, but in its own little village with good restaurants and neighborhood stores. A shuttle can get you to anywhere in a two mile radius, including the metro. Great rooms, service, and breakfast.

The Hilton Garden Shirlington in Arlington VA is super! Plenty of restaurants within blocks of the hotel. A great variety to choose from for breakfast ( bakery), lunch and dinner. Also if you want to go to the movies just go around the corner or how about the theater! Just go down the street. The shuttle is super as well. Nice location with a grocery nstore across the street to boot.

I am sitting in this hotel right now, and it would be so easy to give 4 stars or so to, but I'm so disappointed in their efforts to conserve and preserve as some of their little, in-room fliers say they are into. 1) They are like many hotels that say that if you leave your towels on a hook and you are staying multiple nights, they will not wash your once used towels. We put out towels on hooks this morning like good little conservationists, and our towels were taken away and replaced with new ones on the first night. 2) Cups! Not only do they not put reusable mugs and glasses in the room, they have think, glossy paper cups WRAPPED in plastic! How can we conserve if we are creating that much waste with one time use cups. Really? Plastic wrapped cups.

Needless to say, I've overly disappointed in this company right now. I know I may be one of the few that pay attention to these details, but this company is large enough to make a greater impact for environmental good than this.

This hotel has the best location in DC. Close to the airport and close to shopping and restaurants. Great shuttle service within two miles of hotel. For a business trip or group travel this is the best place to stay. Staff and service second to none.
