Great hotel and amazing staff We stayed here for 2 weeks The hotel staff really cared, were so friendly, and very helpful

The restaurant has a great menu and the sushi chefs were superb The pool was very nice, and the gym had everything a person needs The hotel beds were very comfortable The staff that worked at the hotel marketplace were always so nice and friendly I highly recommend this hotel

Jasmine Hanonu

This is a beautiful hotel with amazing views and staff Price is very competitive The staff were very kind and welcoming

I only stayed one night, I checked in around 5pm and left at 8 the next morning, so because of my time restraints I chose not to go directly to staff to see if they could make things right The bathroom was not properly cleaned The sink had hair from a previous shave, and I had a towel that didn’t seem clean either We had a chaise in the room, but it had some stains on it I am hoping this was just a fluke, because I would love to stay again They also charge $17 for breakfast, but we left early to grab breakfast elsewhere If it were for the disappointment with cleanliness,this would have been an easy 5 star review

Tali Norby

It’s such a beautiful hotel with wonderful amenities, however, I have never had such terrible customer service When I first checked in, the receptionist was actually wonderful Checked in, went to my room, went to bed

I was then woken up at 5:30 am to the phone ringing I didn’t answer It rang a second time Still just waking up so I didn’t answer it in time Went back to bed Someone then started knocking on my door, yelling in my room saying “have you checked in?” Mind you, it is 5:30 am and I checked in the previous day at 4 pm for two nights I answer the door and the guy writes my name down and says I wasn’t reserved? So he took my name and said he’ll take care of it I go back to bed and my phone rings AGAIN and I answer it and no one is on the other end Then it rings YET AGAIN and I answer angrily, and they say “do you have a reservation?” To which I said my name and said I will head to the lobby I hang up and they called…again I didn’t answer and went straight to the front desk The receptionist then said “the last receptionist didn’t check you on all the way but I found your reservation and figured it out” and proceeded to give me a voucher for free breakfast For only that morning That I ultimately missed because I was woken up at 5:30 am and it took me a couple hours to fall back asleep after that No other explanation, and no other way to make it right in my eyes So so disappointed

We stayed at this hotel for my birthday weekend and was very happy with the stay Captain managed the front desk during my stay, and he was extremely friendly and helpful! He even went above and beyond to make my birthday night special The other front desk staff was just as nice and helpful

I had no complaints about my room that was a standard size, everything worked as it should, and most importantly clean We had a drink at the bar/restaurant and the bar’s hostess was great toowe enjoyed her! I am very picky and boujee about my hotel and would return to this hotel It is in a great location surrounded by a mall, restaurants, and a quick drive to the DC area! Thank you for assisting with making my birthday a success!

Beautiful hotel, clean and good rooms We stayed here for a family reunion The beds are comfortable, the pillows are good, the a/c works well with no issues

The bathroom is a decent size Bath soaps and shampoos are decentBut the best thing about this hotel is the staff Alina was very helpful She tried her best to accommodate our family in spite of a huge wedding group staying here at the same time Captain was also great!! He is friendly and charming When you come across hotel staff who welcome you with friendly smiles and want to help you have a great stay, that means a lot to a customerThank you so much, Alina and Captain!!!!

A pleasant surprise!

Tasha Deitz

This was a great family vacation The hotel was moderately clean, I did find some random garbage in my room down by the beds However, the service was fantastic, especially the woman working the front desk the morning of 4/14 and 4/15/22

Breakfast was amazing we did get breakfast vouchers with our room when booking I would absolutely stay here again, anytime


I stayed here for two nights Check in was pleasant and the property honored my Spire Elite status by leaving a note and goodies inside the room and allowing me to checkout late The location is great being right in the heart of Ballston

The room and parking rates are less than nearby hotels Although the service was good, I’m only giving it four stars because the bed wasn’t particularly comfortable and the walls seemed thinned enough to hear into the next room and the housekeeping in the hallway was disturbing because of this

Robert Norris

Just okay Pillows in the room were either completely flat or hard as a brick I found one out of 8 that was barely acceptable

The biggest negative is the breakfast that starts at 7 am That’s too late when you have to be at work at 8 in DC I do commend that they have a made to order breakfast, but it needs to start at 6 am Room itself wasn’t bad and the bed was decent Final negative is $16 a day for parking

Amazing hotel Incredible staff Angel, Jonathan and the whole team took care of everything during my multi-week stay here

They were the friendliest, most positive, helpful group The hotel itself is the cleanest and quietest hotel I have stayed in anywhere in the US The staff seems to place a particular emphasis on customer service, cleanliness, and ensuring a quiet space I would stay here again anytime If I could give the hotel team six stars I would!

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this hotel This hotel “understood the assignment” when it came to true customer service Booked this hotel for my senior parents visiting from southern VA

Front desk, friendly, polite and smiled every – single – day They immediately, with no problems, upgraded my parents room to a studio because my dad was weary of staying on a floor above 3 The boxed breakfasts were nutritious, delicious and high in protein The hotel was spotless and smelled nice and fresh All hand sanitizer stations were filled and usable No hassle parking From the complementary bedroom slippers, to the bottled water, just and all around EXCEPTIONAL experience Great location My parents were very pleased and LOVED the comfortable bed They also felt very safe in the area I HIGHLY recommend this hotel, especially for seniors

Michael Gracey

I stayed for two nights (Friday/Saturday) to extend some work travel while taking advantage of a discount offered by the hotel Staff handled check-in courteously and expeditiously Complimentary parking was located in garage across from hotel (would have been nice to know on email confirmations)

My room happened to be in a corner on the second floor The room was predictably clean I appreciated a couple of small things such as complimentary bottled water, Malin&Goetz bath amenities, and a couple of books for reading if I was interested (I was not but appreciated the gesture) The bed and sofa both had firmer feels than other hotels at which I have stayed (Both were acceptable though and maybe understandable given their newness with the renovation) The shower design somehow encourages water to pool rather than drain, so I hope something can be done maintenance wise as they renovate Road noise is noticeable until midnight, so I would request a room at a higher floor and facing away from Lee HighwayPrices at first glance do not seem terribly unreasonable without the discount (hopefully they will stay reasonable after the renovations finish later this year) All in all the location proves a great reason to stay for a night or two and eat through Mosaic and surrounding restaurants within walking distance and movie watching at the Angelika One could feel good supporting a boutique hotel brand staying here

Jessica Kim

Excellent location and most importantly excellent hospitality The location was fantastic and accommodated our late check in request The room was in good condition and left a very nice gift basket for us to enjoy my promotion

This made this hotel outstanding I would love to visit this location again after their remodeling is complete Thank you so much for a wonderful experience

Clément de la Fontaine

Expected better for this price and 4 stars rating Difficult to park around the hotel, parking for 35 $ a night Simple layer of glass on the windows, so rooms are noisy along the street

Acoustic properties of walls between rooms are not the best either Front desk staff was not pleasant There is water for free and the beds are very comfortable though The rooms are clean and in correct state


We booked one night last weekend to see the cherry blossoms (that were early this year!)My wife called and spoke to Laura We were told we would have a king size bed and a view over the city

When we arrived at the desk, we were told that we had a room on the second floor (not so much of a view!) and two queen size beds! The employee was almost rude with us and told us that that’s what we had bookedWe didn’t complain much because it was for one night, but we felt like someone had lied to usThe room was clean, the view of the backyards of two houses was okThe next morning we decided to have breakfast at the restaurant My eggs Benedict were the worst I have ever had and when my wife complained about her Greek yogurt having a bad after taste, the manager claimed that it was a new container and wasn’t out of date, and pretended she didn’t understand my wife asking her if someone in the kitchen could taste the yogurt My advice: avoid the restaurant by all means!The main advantage of this hotel is its location, off of Georgetown, and we’ll connected


Stayed here 6 nights for business Gave me an adjoining room I could hear the adjoining room’s music every night like the speaker was in my room

The last night they decided to blaze it and filled my room with weed smoke I called the front desk and they did nothing Slept with the windows open because I had nowhere else to goKept finding feathers on my things Figured out they were coming from the Swiss cheese they call a duvet which they placed between two sheets with no cover The entire duvet was covered in pin holes with some massive ones scattered throughout They also didn’t clean the room well as someone’s personal conditioner was left in the showerYou’re better off at another hotel

I have to say that the front staff is very helpful and professional My original room was nice, updates bathroom and very clean I had a issue with the TV since it didn’t work at all

Matt the attendant on duty came and checked it out, once he noticed that the TV needed to have a maintenance call, he switched my room without issues, double checked to make sure all amenities were in working order and then delivered the new room keys to me My second room was the same from the first I was right by the elevator, but did t hear a thing, seems like the room are well insulated Bed was comfortable and the amenities were in point I’ll be here again for my next work trip, glad to know there is a great staff here

Samantha Oney

The rooms are comfy and stylish and the hotel was nice and clean Though we were disappointed that the pool was closed and the shuttle wasn’t running But the staff were all very helpful

The breakfast bar was especially delicious with lots of choices, all kept fully stocked and fresh by Miss Debora She was so kind and friendly and very helpful She made sure to chat with everyone and make sure we all had what we needed It was a great way to start the day

Stayed at this location for almost a week Wished they would of extended my stay but that didn’t happen The person that made my stay enjoyable was Deborah

The overall service at the property exceeded my expectations Eric, is an asset to this property and understands what it takes to leave a lasting impression on a guest Eric paid attention to detail and anticipated my needs by providing extra blankets, pillows, and a roll away bed in the suite prior to my arrival

I arrived with 4 exhausted teenage boys who traveled and competed in a basketball championship Check In was fast and there was no wait to be checked in Everything was prepared for us when we arrived, the room was large and clean, the roll Away bed was turned down and prepared for our late arrival the beds were both comfortable The property was spotless, Inside and out with plenty of parking the area felt very safe, and secure The buffet style Breakfast was great, offering healthy and quick options for families on the go, or a chef to prepare the breakfast of your choice, which is complimentary Eric went out of his way multiple times to ensure We had a perfect stay and he is a great example of what exceptional hospitality looks like

Belinda Tribble

Great stay for business trip Loved the idea of having drink tickets This was a big plus with my group

Nice way to come to our home away from home after a long day of working Eric’s big smile and sweet welcome back was nice as well We will be back in a few weeks and looking forward to another good nights sleep in the comfortable bed Also, room temp was kept nice and cold :} thank you, see ya soon > Tribble

cherry baby

The first Embassy Suites I’ve visited that wasn’t actually a suite It was a single, medium size, room It had a large TV and entertainment center that the used to slightly partition it, but still a single room

Bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean and well stocked The drink tickets were great Parking was not free, but when my uber dropped me off, the arms were up And it looked like an ample size parking lot I didn’t eat breakfast, but based on other reviews it’s tasty

Palak Bhandari

Two to three months ago, we requested 15 or so rooms for a weekend and were told to contact them at the time of the stay in order to ensure that the rooms were connected and in the same part of the hotel Only for us to be told day of that that would not be feasibleCheck-in was painful – we had to stay with our guests to help with the check-in process – and even then it took 1

5 hours for nearly every room to get checked in The staff seemed confused about who had/had not checked in and relied on a spreadsheet THAT WE CREATED in order to keep them organized For a “new/top class” hotel, their technology literacy could really use improvementTwo weeks later, we are dealing with incorrect charges on cards, higher than promised rates, confusion over guests’ names and their room charges, and staff who continue to pass us around and follow up with high-level details instead of taking the time to investigate what went wrong on their end We were considering this space for a wedding venue, but the utter frustration we have faced since has quickly ruled this place outThe hotel directs guests to a $10 / night overnight parking garage that takes forever to get out of The signage to get in and out of this hotel is unclear and there do not appear to be any plans to change it The hotel clearly relies on business travelers and knows itFinally, as of 6/16/22, we were offered the equivalent of one night free as compensation for our troubles We gave them 30 nights worth of business Will never come back nor recommend this place to anyone – wedding, regular stay, anything This has turned me off the Hyatt brand for personal use

Noel James

The hotel was nothing short of excellent The hospitality was amazing I stayed here for my birthday weekend and the front desk hostess, Catherine was amazing! She paid attention to every detail of my request and made sure that my needs were catered for

I had the King room with a view of the city And it was just gorgeous The breakfast at the hotel restaurant was equally up to par and scrumptious!It’s a gorgeous property that I would definitely revisit anytime I’m in Tysons

Tim O’Neill

The room was fine but it is a ‘pet friendly’ hotel which apparently means you can bring your dog to stay with you, leave it in the room and go out and party all night while it sits in the room alone howling Unbelievable! Good luck sleepingWho knows when the adjoining restaurant opens on a Sunday morning? Nearest place open at 7am for breakfast was Silver Diner a mile away

It was fantastic!

Corrie Christiaansen

The staff was super friendly, especially Robert and Kristine at the front desk and the bartender I was very impressed by the cleanliness and modern sleek style of the hotel The food and drinks at the bar were amazing, I recommend the shrimp linguine and the cheese spinach dip! In general my stay was quiet and peaceful in exception for some of the noise from the Metro station across the street

On the other hand, the Metro station being right there was very convenient for my trip With all the mandates and safety concerns in DC, this hotel was the perfect alternative to still be close to DC without actually staying in DC

Alison Molnar

Really excellent customer service; helped me navigate a lost credit card situation with ease! My trip very easily could’ve been difficult, but they made the check-in process painless The rooms are nice and clean – I especially appreciate the drybar hair dryers and 24 hour gym My room did have a lot of noise from the metro, but that can’t be helped

Peggy Allen

Great location close to subway We did not need to rent a car during our visit Nice savings

Very quiet throughout hotel Nice bar and restaurant in the evenings If you are too tired to leave for supper- this place, with a small menu, will satisfy if you are looking for a beer and a good burger Breakfast was very nice with a great wait staff that brought drinks and coffee quickly each morning and remembered thereafter Tables always clean unlike other hotels that leave messy tables when mornings are busy and tables are in demand Good coffee Would stay again

I informed the staff my family and I would be coming in late It’s very refreshing to have a professional staff regardless of the hours Everyone here treated me with the upmost respect Other Marriotts need to follow their lead I was even surprised with a room upgrade Fabulous experience Thank you Marriott! Loved the breakfast everyday!

John Wickman was a rude front desk – trying to check in at night and was being rude and unprofessional Accused me of harassing him and even told me that he will call the police and my “mother” taught me not to be polite Was asking him a simple question, when my “white” partner tried to check in, he was nice

But when I checked in (cause the reservation was under my name) – it was different Is it because I’m Asian? Sir, you are rude and a disgrace for Marriott hotels Racist old man!!!Even if we “can’t” check in yet, don’t be rude with loyal customers or any customers or don’t be rude with people You don’t threaten them to call the police or include “your” mother on how they raised you Unacceptable, rude and racist!

I rarely write reviews but my husband and I just had a wonderful stay at the Lorien We only did 1 night but we wish we could have stayed longer The hotel was immaculate

The room was spacious, updated and clean Extremely comfortable We travel often btwn TX and NJ and this is a great , convenient pit stop I should also add that we are traveling with our dog and it’s a perfect walkable neighborhood

It was a bit overrated They charge for EVERYTHING, and really you can’t tell why For a Spa the TOWELS in the room were rough, the beds are NOT Queens they are Doubles, they only have double beds at the elevator and in adjoining rooms, I have request for neither and could not be accommodated

There were some staff that were very helpful and provided extras when asked, but for what we were paying we really shouldn’t have had to ask for enough towels etcThe location is great especially if weather it goodIf you Valet, look behind you if you don’t see him, they sitting in their car? (crazy) but they were able to get car to you when neededThe BEST part was the restaurant that is connected We did dinner thereTOP NOTCH, PRICEY BUT I WILL SAY WORTH IT The Mussels and the pastayummy David was the best waiter ever and we did see the value thereA friend recommended this place and he admitting stayed there years ago, he loved itbut when we told him our experiences, he said obviously they had changed management or ownershipWe even heard them charging a person for Early check in, the person walked up and said she was there, if room was available great, but if not she just wanted to leave info at desk for when ready, she was in a conference there the girl proceeded to check her in, says room is available and then addsthat will be 4500 early check in the guest was like wait, what, I said I would waitit’s crazy sneaky stuff like that, that really not goodOh and the Happy Hour wineis Woodbridgecome on give me something for the 2500 FEE you’ve tacked on

This review would have had more stars but upon check in the glasses in the room were very dirty Additionally when my boyfriend woke up the next morning we found a used condom by the side of the bed Totally unacceptable

The operations manager did call to explain how this is not up to standard etc which I did appreciate but just sucks It was my birthday and not how I wanted to spend the day Ended up checking out Unfortunate situation If you stay here please check the cleanliness of your rooms Front desk staff was very nice and pleasant Wish I had a better overall experience

Staff was phenomenal This includes the front desk, bar and restaurant staff All were top notch, friendly, cheerful and helpful

Room was amazing Super comfortable, the desk was great and the television was above top great with the additional appsThe entire property (inside and out) was kept very cleanDropped a star for the price of bar items, seemed a bit expensive Even with the $15/day credit, everything in the restaurant is expensive The food was goodNot any fault of the hotel, but there are limited eateries within walking distance

Last minute booking for memorial weekend, decent prices Room was fantastic, staff was helpful too! We got an upgrade to the 9th floor for 20$ extra per day and I’m so glad that we took it The bed was comfortable, the shower was so good, definitely felt the luxury there!Additionally, coffee downstairs was excellent and the bar was happening

There was a happy hour between 5-6 PM when we spent a lot of time in the lobby chit chatting and sipping 5$🍻

Jesús Wong

Very nice place to stay, ample rooms, coffee machine is welcoming, nice views, very convenient “pantry”store with basics as ice cream, good sandwiches and small first aid last minute itemsThe gym looks good but I didn’t had time to use itBut mostly and more important: the staff was very helpful and accommodating with our needs

Helping beyond the regular requests from our groupWe had an excellent stay

We stayed over the weekend at this Hotel Very nice

very clean and rates were very fair and affordableThe beds was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and there was plenty of towels The staff was very friendly and helpful with me and my family The only con that I can think of is I still haven’t received back my $6000 room deposit back yet and it was supposed to be credited back to my account upon check out

Paul Marquardt

Spent a week here recently The service was very good The bar service was great and food was quick and easy to order

The concierge lounge was very nice and I took full advantage of it for breakfast and late night snacks The only thing I would have changed would be adding the concierge lounge key to the digital key I ended up having to get a key card for that access separately It was an easy fix though and the front desk personnel were very helpful

Ryan Hurford

Titanium member This is a fantastic hotel with open spaces and clean rooms The staff are inviting and pleasant

They do have an open concierge lounge on the top floor It had hot eggs and bacon with the typical abbreviated breakfast items this morning Oatmeal, yogurt, juices, etc No charcuterie plate, but has enough to grab and go The bed was stellar and the shower/tub was spotless and well cared forHotel is quiet no matter which room you get, so that’s a big plus if you fly in late and need to sleep asap before the early rise, or if you have kiddos I definitely recommend!

Location was perfect for a family vacation to DC Two blocks from the Metro (blue line) and about a mile from the waterfront in Old Town So many great restaurants nearby and fun shopping

They do have a breakfast that we didn’t try ($15/person) but if you are going to DC, eat at the hotel your first day It’s just easier until you get your bearings They don’t clean the rooms every day, which is fine, but you do have to be proactive about asking for towels and to get the trash emptied if you want that Their convenience store was woefully understocked so even though they have guest laundry on the second floor, I couldn’t use it because I couldn’t get soap Kind of a bummer The staff is very friendly and helpful Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting DC Much cheaper than a DC hotel and you get to spend the evenings in Old Town Alexandria every night

Freespiriting xo.

I just wanted to first and foremost give the manager Joe a shout out!! There was an issue with a double charge for the room I booked, and this man went above and beyond to get it fixed and to show how apologetic he was that it happened It’s rare to come across employees/managers like him, and I just wanted him and the company know that he’s great and truly appreciated Because of you Joe whenever I’m in town, I’ll be staying here at this Hilton

Also, the rooms were clean and breakfast was great The location is perfect as well, it’s right across the street the a train station

Shontae Lashley

The accommodations were nice and what you would expect for a Hilton location My issue was with the billing, service and responsiveness of the manager After paying for my entire stay in advance via the Hilton app I was overcharged by the hotel who should have only charged me for parking

I expected a hold would be placed on my card for incidentals for $150, the hold ended up being $670 No one could explain why the hold was including what I had already paid for my 3 night stay along with the incidental deposit The entire hold finally released 5 days later but now I’ve been charged nearly $300 which is no where near what parking actually cost me I was told that this would be handled by the location manager on July 3rd and I would get a call from the manager I have yet to hear from anyone from the location nor have the charges been corrected Needless to say I will never stay at this location again I am also disappointed with Hilton Customer Care for their lack of support in this situation

Convenient location to DC The hotel is clean and well maintained Beds were comfortable

Waitstaff were friendly and accommodating The food was surprisingly goodThe elevators were confusing as you needed to take 3 elevators to get from parking garage to your room There is no good way to use a dolly to get from parking garage to your room due to steps you had to take to get to elevator There was no coffee maker or refrigerator in the room We had reserved a room on high floor away from elevator, but we got room on lowest floor near elevator


This was my first stay at a Le Méridien property It definitely was not a disappointment as the property felt more luxurious than your typical premium category under the Marriott portfolio As ambassador, I used a suite night award for an upgrade to their Executive King, Studio Suite, 1 King, Sofa bed, City view room

I was particularly impressed with the comfortable beds and the overall bedding itself The property accommodated me by granting me my Your24 request, exclusive to Ambassador Elite members The front desk check-in experience was pleasant This was only a one night stay and I did not eat on the property so I cannot attest to the restaurant and bar on site, although I recall it being filled with people so it must’ve been good If you park a vehicle, you will have to pay at the garage, which is not owned by the hotel, but it isn’t terribly expensive like other places especially ones in DC itself Outside of airplane noise from nearby DCA, the building was very quiet I would stay again

Christian Ardito

The best feature of Le Méridien Arlington is their extremely professional, helpful and friendly staff The hotel lobby and hallways are nicely decorated and have some charm However, once you get to your room, the suites are very small compared to other hotels nearby

The bathroom is particularly small, with very little space between the small sink and the toilet, and from the toilet to the shower The decor is likely decades old and it shows I requested an allergen free room, and indeed the room did not trigger my allergies but I had my doubts considering that the carpet had several noticeable cigarette burns – which only reinforced my impression that the room hasn’t been renovated in decades I believe most hotels banned smoking more than ten years ago The toiletries were nice but not nice enough to offset the occasional discharge noise coming from the bathroom during the night The AC was extremely noisy and blew air directly onto the bed, which is not ideal in my opinion, and I have a suspicion that the thermostat wasn’t accurate since the room felt considerably colder than what the thermostat indicated All in all, I would not recommend this hotel, despite the great service In fact, if I have a choice, I do not intend to stay at Le Méridien Arlington again

First time to try this hotel, was an amazing experience The check in process was seamless Ample of parking spots available ( was for free during my stay, I was told that at times they charge)

Also they are clear in their instructionsThe room I got was super clean and with a fridge and a microwave breakfast was better than what I got in an actual breakfast place with lots of choicesAlso they have a pool and a gym I hope you enjoy your stay like I did

Sebasthian Ahumada

We stayed at this location during our trip to DC and were blown away by the positive experience we had The manager, I believe his name was Kevin, was absolutely welcoming and accommodating in every way He went out of his way multiple times to personally ensure that every guest was comfortable and had all their needs met

We forgot to pack some supplies and he happily provided a replacementThe room was very clean, comfortable, and had no weird smells The Continental Breakfast was delicious and plentiful while the eating area was constantly kept clean Thank you to all the staff for making this a great trip We have agreed to make this our permanent hotel whenever visiting the area

Thomas Weaver

We had a very nice, spacious room We are showing our condo for sale and it was great that they were able to accommodate our cats! We had a comfortable, and restful stay The young gentleman at the front desk was super professional and attentive

Everything was fresh and clean I have had a great experience at each Hampton Inn that I’ve stayed at
