Holiday Inn Arlington

Location is terrific for access to the National Science Foundation. Rooms are acceptable and clean. Mine was slightly noisy due to hall traffic. TV worked poorly. Fan in bathroom was noisy and nonstop. Lighting good and there's a comfortable desk.

Try Japanese food in the nearby mall. The sushi lunch menu is quite good and reasonable by DC standards.

Lacking service

Had maintenance man working on room's air conditioning three times during a week-long stay. Several poor nights of sleep due to constantly malfunctioning air conditioning, and the front desk's lack of initiative in addressing the problem.

Fantastic stay

This was my first stay. It is so close to the metro station, and nearly local attractions. The room is clean, and the staff is friendly. More importantly, I input the wrong check-in and check-out dates when booking, The hotel allowed me to check in and out at my preferred dates at no additional charge. This is fantastic!

OK Place to Stay in Arlington for Work or Play

I stayed here 3 nights. Everything was as expected, with clean rooms and helpful staff. My TV didn't work but I only didn't care very much and only told the staff on check out. There is a small outside pool and a minimal exercise area (machines only).

Great location

This is the best value if staying at Ballston. It's within walking distance from the Metro. The hotel shuttle will drop you off anywhere within a couple of miles from the hotel. A couple of things could have been better. For some reason there was a large gap between the bottom of the door to the room and the floor. It was large enough for me to notice, approximately 1-1.5". The AC/heater is by the window and the controls have been removed and there is a wall controller now. This is an improvement, but they need to seal the old control panel, I did not notice the wall controller right away.
