“Remember, you're here for the lodging, food, free parking, and shuttle!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

If you're in the DC area to see the DC area, this is a great place to stay. Parking is (still) free, whereas in most closer-to-DC parking is between $12-32/day. There's a free shuttle to/from the nearest Metro station (Pentagon City), with pick-ups at anytime of the day. Do not stay here if having a lap, or play, pool (indoors) is what you're looking for - the one here is for soaking (the smallest one we've ever seen at a 'Hilton Garden Inn', along with a jacuzzi on the side. Great restaurants in the area (like, right around the block), with a Harris Teeter grocery store a 3-min walk away. The buffet breakfast is set, with eggs-to-order, fruits, coffee/tea's, everything you could want. We got a SmartTrip card at the Pentagon City Metro station ($18), and added $10, which was good for getting around DC for 2-3 days. After a couple of days, we were familiar with getting around back-and-forth in-and-out of DC from this hotel. Yes, we'd come-back and stay here in a future trip, with family, friends, or as a couple.

Room Tip: Our room was 'sound-proof' and the shades (darkened) made it easy to sleep at night.

If you are in Arlington, the Pentagon, Georgetown or DC this is the place to stay. Parking is across the street in parking garage but free. This really doesn't matter because you can walk to great restaurants and even theaters. I wish every city had an area like the Village at Shirlington! I promise you that you won't be disappointed.

We can't say enough about the management and staff at this Hilton Garden Inn! We stayed here for 5 nights for a family gathering. After we returned to our home (5.5 hr. drive away), we realized that we had left our camera along with irreplaceable pictures in our hotel room. The next guest had already checked into the room by that point. Eric, Christopher, and Toby went out of their way to help us retrieve the items and communicate updates. I manage a training department and work with HGI hotels. Their staff make a huge difference by going out of their way to help. The Shirlington staff raised the bar by taking extra steps when we really needed it. We'll happily recommend this hotel to anyone staying in DC.

This was mine and my families first time in the DC area. I picked this hotel online due to great price and reviews. I am so glad I did. The hotel is located in a great area. All the little shops and restaurants surrounding the hotel are awesome. The staff was extremely helpful and the room was great. I will definitely stay here again.

I recently stayed for three days at this Hilton Garden Inn in Shirlington. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for somewhere in the D.C. area - the location was perfect, with easy access to Washington, and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Free parking was an additional benefit. The staff were wonderful - friendly and helpful. The room was spotless, and the Neutrogena products in the bathroom were first class. Don't miss the breakfast!

Room Tip: Try the free cookies in the lobby with the flavored iced water.

Stayed here from 7/3 to 7/7. Everything from the check in to the check out was pleasant and easy. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Ali at the front desk helped us with our shuttle reservations and was really customer focused. Rooms are clean and spacious. We stayed in 437 and had a fridge and microwave. Bed is a memory foam mattress w/comfort setting. It was comfy once I found the setting I liked. Pillows were a bit too soft for my liking, but were OK. Location is very, very good, just around the corner from numerous bars and restaurants. A good grocery store (Harris Teeter) right across the street made it convenient to pick up items for late night snacks and morning travels. Parking is across the street (4th level of the parking deck), a tad inconvenient, but by no means a real issue. We had breakfast vouchers for our stay but was not impressed with the food selection or portion size.That was the least liked part of our stay. Great outside seating for breakfast or late night drinks. Easy access to the subway via free shuttle (Pentagon City stop). We also saw a bike rental station right across the street. Based on the fine staff and excellent location we will return.
