“Perfect base for exploring DC”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

On my recent solo trip to DC, I chose to stay in Arlington because of the easy access to the city without the high accommodation costs. I found a great deal for this hotel on Booking.com, and spent a wonderful week there.

The room was very nicely appointed, with a full kitchen, small dining table with 2 chairs, and comfortable armchair. The bed was very comfortable too. The hotel offers free wifi in the rooms, and free printing from the computers in the lobby. There is a small commissary beside the front desk where you can purchase snacks and toiletries.

The Courthouse Metro stop is less than 3 blocks away, a nice walk if you don't mind the steep hill (it served as my daily exercise). If you don't want to walk, the hotel has a free shuttle to take you there. Restaurants, a movie theatre, CVS drugstore, fast food (Subway, Wendy's) and supermarkets are all within walking distance, and the area is very safe.

My one complaint was that the front desk staff did not inform me that the hotel offered free breakfast (every day) and dinner (3 nights a week) when I checked in, so I missed dinner on the night I arrived. I found out about breakfast by accident, as I encountered other guests going to the dining room the next morning. I couldn't find any information about these in-house meals in my room. The next time I visited the front desk, I noticed the menus on one side of the desk, but they should have been pointed out to me at check-in.

Overall, I was very pleased with my stay here, and I will definitely stay here the next time I visit DC.

Stayed 4 days. Overall the stay was great. Hotel was within a 5 min walk to the courthouse metro (up a pretty steep hill) which made it a breeze to get anywhere we wanted to go. they do offer a free shuttle to the metro if you don't feel like walking. Several restaurants were within walking distance also. Room was very clean, large and comfortable. Bed was pretty soft (but I like soft and slept great). The complimentary breakfast was par for the course and made for a nice start to the day. Got a really good deal on priceline so was a little worried, you know the saying; "Too good to be true" but was pleasantly surprised. If I am ever in the area again, will definitely stay here.

Excellent room, service, breakfast, location. Highly recommend this hotel literally right by Arlington courthouse metro minutes to dc and museums. The bus drivers and front desk staff are very accommodating, breakfast staff are friendly. Seriously you cant go wrong with free breakfast and free wifi on dc

Never having been to Washington, DC, we were hesitant to pay high prices to stay in DC, but were uncertain about hotels on the outskirts (transportation, convenience, ease of access). There are many to choose from, but we could not pass up the deal we were offered for a 3 bedroom suite at the Clarion Collection Arlington. We are a family of five and find it tough to afford comfortable accommodations, especially in pricy cities.

The hotel is older and has been refurbished, but it is clean and comfortable. If you can get past things like the highway construction, masking take on the doors with the room number, and lack of a highway bridge at Courthouse Rd coming back from DC, then you will be pleasantly surprised by the very nicely remodeled rooms, comfortable beds, really good complementary breakfasts, and nice dinners a few nights a weeks. Just what we were looking for!

Extra parking in the rear with direct access to first floor. Older elevators were slow and broke down one morning, but you should be out sightseeing!

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a family, ask for the first floor 2 or 3 bedroom suites. If it is a slow t...

We stayed here for the second time last week. Used it as a base for touring Arlington and DC too. The room was huge. Kitchen, two bedrooms and large living room. WiFi that kept teenagers happy. A complimentary breakfast each morning offering hot and cold options. Proved to be very popular each day. Staff were 100% and their shuttle bus was very handy too.

Close to many shops and restaurants and if like us you do not have a car, the Courthouse Metro is just up the road. We used this a lot and got the "Smart trip" card that was easy to use too.

Ideal hotel for our party of five. Will definitely use again if we manage to make it over again.

This is my second stay at this hotel and I would recommend it highly. It is located only 3 blocks and an easy walk to the Metro, The rooms were clean and spacious with full kitchen. The beds were comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful. the only slightly negative would be that the breakfasts only had meat on the buffet one morning during our 5 night stay. I recommend it highly and will stay here again when visiting the DC area.

Wonderful stay at this hotel, check in was quick, the suite was very spacious - like a one bedroom apartment; the room was clean, bed comfortable, good water pressure with lots of hot water (showering) – We were on the third floor pool side and thought there would be a lot of noise but surprisingly, quiet inside and outside of the hotel. Breakfast was good- more than I expected for a hotel chain (pancakes, hash brown potatoes, eggs, sausage, fruit, bagels and more food options I can’t remember). Very good location on the Virginia side, walked all the way to Rosslyn and back with no problems – lots of hills though; within 8 to 10 minutes to the National Mall and Memorials by car. Lots of food options nearby to include a grocery store – Safeway and drug store – CVS. Courtesy shuttle service was available but wanted to explore the Arlington side on foot; did not use the metro but was down the street close to the hotel (walkable if you don't want to wait for the hotel shuttle to take you) Loved this area -had an urban feel as the hotels were mixed in with local residential. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to others.
