Spacious Hotel in Arlington

I have stayed here on several occasions, from short-term to a couple of weeks, solo and with family and pets. Every experience has been great. It is perfect if you want a kitchen, which is stocked with all things you'd need to cook, with a decent-sized refrigerator. And the room size is very nice, with huge closets and plenty of storage space. The check-in folks are great, the staff is friendly, and the rooms are always nice and clean. The *only* real complaint I have is that their door does not automatically open, so when you have bags it can get tricky, and they have several stairs that you must climb just to get to the elevator. Again, very tricky when you have a bag, kids, etc. But, they will carry them up for you. There is a great kids' park just across the street, some of the rooms have pretty views, and the location is just off of Hwy 50. Not the closest to restaurants, I wouldn't say that Rosslyn has the best food choices, but there are places, mostly for the lunch crowd, and it is walkable if you don't have a car. The Metro shuttle is very convenient and they take you to the grocery store! Nice old building with this walls, keeping the neighbors' sound to a minimum.

The Quarterdeck, which is just up the hill from the hotel, is a great hangout place, and they have Maryland crabs, when in season. Whack away!

Comfortable and Convenient

Virginian Suites is conveniently close to the Rosslyn Metro stop, which links you to almost anywhere in the DC area. The hotel provides free shuttle to and from the Metro. Free breakfast and coffee all day are included. The hotel has a smallish gym and a nice pool. The area is very safe. All rooms include a small kitchen, and there is a Safeway supermarket in walking distance. The hotel has a self-service coin laundry (you'll need quarters). Staff members are very nice & helpful.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

Kennedy Center Millennium Stage offers a FREE music/dance performance every evening at 6pm. Just take the Metro one stop to Foggy Bottom. You can walk; the Kennedy Center also offers a shuttle service to and from the Foggy Bottom Metro. The shows last about an hour and are delightful.

Disappointment

One needed a Voucher in order to enjoy breakfast in the morning. What a disappointment! Gym was super small and basic. It was also so noisy throughout the evening and night.

Great hotel & location!

I was so surprised at the great location of this hotel for the price! It was right across the bridge from DC. We did a trolley tour both days we were there which we were able to hop on from Arlington National Cemetery very close by (10 min walk). The room was large w/a cute little kitchen. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was very happy w/this hotel!

Wow... Kind of scary.

I read a few reviews... it said the place was nice and safe... They were right about nice... not about safe. Within 10 minutes of arriving, someone had gotten robbed. Cops all over the place. Parking was scarce, I guess they didn't expect people because they didn't really clear their parking of all the snow. The room was very nice though for the low low price.

DC Great Location!

You cannot beat the location for the DC Mall, Arlington and downtown. Shuttle every 30 minutes to Metro station which is only 4 blocks away, an easy walk with pedestrian crossings and a small park with art to enjoy. An older property but with over the top amenities, wonderful and prompt staff. Huge rooms with crisp white bedding on cloud soft mattresses. Staff was the best! Kitchen was a bonus that vacationers could take advantage of, stocked with everything from wine glasses to salt and pepper shakers! A travelers dream as layout of room makes for a very quiet stay. Of the three trips I have recently made to DC, this was a very pleasant stay and the most budget friendly. Coffee in the room as well as full beverage service in lobby. Fruit bowls in lobby all day and cookies in the afternoon. My early schedule did not allow for trying the weekday continental breakfast. I will be using this hotel again when visiting DC.

Use the full kitchen for a meal or two. CVS has lots of meal options with freezer and cold case.

Quick work trip

The staff was friendly and helpful when I arrived. When I got into the room I noticed that I could hear everything going on in the other rooms. There were loud conversations that didn't stop all night and you could hear the cooking happening directly next door. The sink in my room had something left over from the previous visitor and I'm not sure what it was, but it slightly resembled throw up or something. I has a quick couple hours of sleep in the room and left early in the morning. I would have definitely complained if I was in there for a longer period of time.
