My room stunk, literally

My room honestly smelled like a cat had peed in the corner. When I told the staff, they had the room cleaned, which essentially amounted to applying a perfumed spray that somewhat masked the smell, but did not remove the source of the odor or my discomfort regarding sleeping in the unclean room. I would have pushed for a room change, but I was so tired and had such a long day the next day that I simply decided to try to ignore the fact that my room grossed me out. Needless to say, I wore socks during my entire stay. Obviously, the room should have been properly cleaned from the get-go, but in the alternative I should have immediately been offered a different room. I'm turned off from Best Westerns for good.

Very comfortable and clean

This hotel is at a great location convenient to all Washington, DC attractions via metro, walking or car. It is an easy walk to several good restaurants. The facility and rooms were completely adequate and provided sufficient comfort and accommodations for a good price. We stayed there due to business, but brought along our family. I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Be sure to take advantage of the metro system. It is easy to use and so much easier than driving in the area.

Close to the sites

We loved our stay here! It's just a short walk to a Metro station, close to lots of great restaurants and sightseeing options. The pool was heated but refreshing and the staff was friendly, knowledgable and helpful with giving directions and advice. I will stay here again if coming to town!

Hot box

The hotel was good for the purpose it served: close to The metro, generally close to DC and clean. However, I have never stayed in a hotel where the lobby and it's hallways were not air conditioned! We stayed during 85degree humid weather and the only place we could seek comfort was in our rooms which still didn't make it that cool. There was 1 vending machine that had snacks in it an ice machine but nowhere to get a drink! After walking around in the heat all day you would think at least a water cooler or something. The only thing they provided was HOT coffee and tea in the lobby. A continental breakfast would have gone a long way if they had at least provided that for the price per night we paid but instead we had to go to the restaurant across the way and pay 10 dollars for a bagel and a peice of fruit.

There are lots of restaurants in the Arlington area that are walkable. Street parking is free pretty much everywhere in Arlington after 6pm.

Hospitality - not so hospitable.

Dwight at the front desk is the worst form of hospitable in the hospitality industry. When there was confusion with one of the 3 rooms we had for the weekend, his response to me was it is "nothing but business". He was a very cold, icy robot and told lies about what the situation was. Never had such horrible customer service when staying for 3 nights with 3 rooms.

Nothing special about the hotel, but we felt safe and comfortable. Don't eat at the on site restaurant. Value over Memorial Day Weekend was great.
