Historical Traveller Reviews of Hyatt Arlington Hotel

Sushi: Breakfast of Champions

from ceb24
We spent two nights at the Hyatt over a weekend in February. The room was good-sized and comfortable, but a little outdated by Hyatt standards. The location is great; the hotel is directly across the street from the Metro station and right off of Interstate 66. It is within minutes of Georgetown, downtown D.C., and Old Town Alexandria. There is a parking garage and free parking on the weekends, which is a plus. Although the staff was friendly, they weren't very helpful in making recommendations. We asked for suggestions for a good restaurant in the area, and they gave us a very old, outdated, Xeroxed list of nearby places (which included Burger King). Having spent a fair amount of time in Arlington, I knew there were MUCH better offerings, including some good places a few blocks up in Clarendon and tons of nice restaurants across the bridge in Georgetown. The next morning, we asked a different front desk worker to recommend a good place to get brunch, and he suggested Cafe Asia, a sushi place. Not exactly brunch fare. As it turned out, we found a place a few blocks up the street called Harry's Taproom, which had a very good, classy Sunday brunch (I definitely recommend it). We booked the room at a special rate of $99, and for the money, it was well worth it. Overall, it was a good experience. I'm just glad that I knew my way around well enough to not have to rely on the front desk for directions, recommendations, etc. The Hyatt should make sure it's front desk staff can name a few of the area's better restaurants, or at least update their restaurant list. (One of the D.C. area's higher rated restaurants is Ray's The Steaks, which is literally a few blocks from the Hyatt, on the same street.) If you're not from the area, it's a nice hotel in a safe and convenient area but you'd better bring a Zagat's and a good map.

Not worth the price

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed here on business Feb 12-14 2006. Staff were friendly and helpful, and room was fairly big with a king size bed. I was on the 10th floor so I had no problem with noise from the street. Like with another reviewer, I noticed that one of the bags containing cream and sugar for my coffee had been opened but not replaced. And I had to leave the tap running for several minutes before I could get hot water to take a shower. I also noticed that the bed sheets had a hole in it. I payed $109 for the first night and $259 for the second night. Definately not worth that much, and I would not stay here again.

secret treasure

from RSVPTravel
I spent my birthday weekend (13-15)at the Hyatt Arlington and was very surprised. I stayed at the Grand Hyatt in D.C months earlier and this hotel was not as Great. But what it lacked in Grand-ness it made up for everyplace else. My room & bathroom were huge with a King Bed; Larger than my room in the Grand Hyatt.

The hotel houses one of the top one hundred restaurants in D.C, Mezza 9. Morning breakfast was served in the restaurant. Continental was $8 or $11, buffet was $15. so of course because I am an American ...I chose the deal with meat included. Breakfast selection was limited but I was pleased with the service and food. The waiters were very attentive to all patrons. Upon leaving the restaurant, one of the workers( the head somebody) began to chat with me and I mentioned "I was celebrating my birthday". He immediately said he would sent up a complimentary wine or whatever drink I preferred to my room. He was very helpful and showed me where to catch the metro. The hotel also has a bar with TV on the first floor.I will admit my feeling towards this hotel was changing from ok to Good.

The metro was across the street and a few stops from pentigon city mall. Later that evening room service arrived with a glass of chilled white wine, strawberries, and chocolate and caramel dips.
I have stayed at many hotels around the world. Some pamper you but the price is high. Others, make you feel like anything other than the room is not included. I paid $99 a day and a smile was thrown in for free. This hotel has much to offer anyone as pampered as me. The mezza 9 provided a lovely, private view of the city and their (dinner) meal was delicious.

I will be back to this hotel soon. My birthday was a success. Thank you Hyatt

Not a fancy place but great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Spent a long weekend with my son in DC to visit the museums. The hotel is a bit older and tired, but it was perfectly fine. Rooms are on the small side but again adequate for the two of us. Location is GREAT, across the street from the back entrance of Rosalyn Metro station, a major transportation hub. Location is as convenient if not more so that staying in DC and probably results in less walking overall due to proximity to metro. Safeway is 1 block away, a few food places, etc. No breakfast was provided. Only issue was the lack of HOT WATER as pointed out in other reviews. When asked, the serviceman denied that this was a known problem, however I find that hard to believe. Ran the water for a good 10+ minutes (wasteful) and still no hot water. Settled for a cold shower that night, and no compensation or even an apology was given. Other than that, the hotel was a good deal ($75), but I probably won;d not pay more than $100 if on my dime. Free weekend parking.

Be Careful of Your Luggage

from Annaj76
I stayed at the Hyatt Arlington for 3 nights. The hotel was clean, and the room was perfectly adequate. The staff was perfectly friendly and up until the point where I stopped back by the hotel on my way to the airport I could have given the hotel a good review.

That morning after I checked out, I checked my luggage in at guest services and received my claim ticket since I didn't want to cart my luggage around all day. When I came back that afternoon for my luggage I had a rude awakening. They had given it away to some random person. They didn't accidentally give the wrong bag. No, they just thought these people didn't have enough luggage and gave them my bag as well. Claim tickets apparently are worthless here. But that wasn't the kicker. It was one individual that gave my bag away. It was the management staff that dealt with the aftermath.

They gave a good enough show while I was there. They made calls and tracked down the bag. They echoed sympathy across the board. They got me a cab to the airport since I certainly wasn't catching the bus I planned to. They ASSURED me that they would arrange for a service to deliver the bag to me next day delivery. One of the staff would call me later that evening with the tracking number as soon as it became available. I left for the airport with the belief that I would get my bag with my medication, passport, cell phone charger, glasses, car keys, house keys, office keys, and etc. the next day. Someone managed to get spare car keys to me at the airport so I wouldn't have to leave my car there.

No one from the hotel called with the tracking number. When I called the next day someone found the number for me. When I called the delivery service I found out that I wouldn't be getting my delivery that day. It was sitting in Ohio, but that they would schedule me for Saturday delivery, and call me the next morning with the delivery time. Later that afternoon, the hotel called me to check status and then seemed far more concerned that they were paying for next day delivery than that I still hadn't received my luggage. The next day I called the delivery service again and found out that I wouldn't be receiving my luggage until Tuesday because they were closed on Monday.

As soon as I left the hotel, the management felt no more need to put on the show of concern. They used an inefficient delivery service that I had never heard of. They washed their hands of the situation because they blamed it all on the one employee who gave up the bag. I transfer that blame to the entire staff, because one mistake followed another. I will not be visiting this hotel again, and the Hyatt in general has a black mark in my book. Be careful of your luggage and the management staff if you visit this hotel.

Stay at the Hyatt

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed hear with my 11 yr old son,room was very clean and every thing worked,all the people who have complained about this hotel must be very fussy indeed.The hotels location is perfect with the subway being 5 mins walk away,Bus 5A runs to Dulles at a cost of 3 Dollars per person. The hotel has an excellent reataurant and you can also get smaller lighter snacks at the bar, if you walk 10 mins in either direction you will find a choice of other places to eat, staff were polite and helpful, do yourself a favour and stay here.

Old and overpriced

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is arguably the worst hotel I've stayed at, and not just among Hyatt hotels. It is old and tired. Walls in the halls and in the room showed wear and dirt stains. I got room 1021. It is small (almost cramped), dark, dirty, and unattractive. The carpet had dark spots (stains) throughout. It was snowing outside, and the room was freezing cold. No central heating with thermostat here - instead, an old, standalone heater unit sat next to the window. At least it worked! There was an empty college-dormitory-type mini refridgerator sitting on the floor next to the bed. So unelegant! I got to the hotel and the room late and was too tired to demand and change to a different room. The worst thing was when I tried to take a hot shower. I let the "hot" water run for 5 minutes. It never got hot, not even warm. I had to shower so ended up having to take a quick cold shower in the middle of a freezing December night. I've stayed at hundreds of hotels, and this was the first that didn't have hot water! The next morning, while making coffee, I discovered that one of the plastic bags containing cream and sugar had already been open. Apparently the maid didn't see it open or didn't care to throw it away. That, alone, speaks volume about this room and hotel. I stayed here on business, and my company paid over $200/nt for the room. Thank goodness I was only there for one night. I would not have paid even $35 of my own money to stay here. This hotel is now permanently off my list.

Use The Metro!

from CockneyBrum
We stayed here during mid-November 2005 after seeing a deal for a suite on Travelzoo for under $80 per night.

Don't be too concerned about the hotel being "out of town" - there are great transport links to this hotel. You are across the street from Rosslyn Metro and Bus Terminals, which are fantastically cheap for getting about DC. On the Metro, you're only three stops away from all the sights. You can get the 5A bus from Dulles Airport for $3 one-way (although at the time of writing, these buses are NOT geared up for people with lots of luggage or big bags!). There is also a very cheap bus which links you from Rosslyn to Georgetown.

We felt safe in the area and didn't feel that we were missing out by not staying in the centre of DC.

If you manage to get a deal at this hotel, then it comes highly recommended.

Why Tryatt?

from A TripAdvisor Member
My family stayed at this hotel for a weekend visit to DC. We checked in on Friday expecting the usual above-average Hyatt standard of room size, appointments and cleanliness. Not this time. Apparently, this facility is the unpopular brother-in-law of the Hyatt family. :-)

The first room we were given was just plain small and tired in appearance. It wasn't awful - by some econo-hotel standard, but this wasn't an inexpensive stay! Then we went into the bath and the missing grout in the shower and the chipped porcelain bath tub were the last straw.

We asked to move, and were given a room on a "Gold Passport" floor. You would think this would be a significant upgrade, but apparently "gold" has plummeted in value. The room was exactly the same - just as small and just as tired. The only difference was the bath - no missing grout or porcelain, but still road weary.

I can't believe that anyone from Hyatt has visited this hotel in a long time. I would rate this hotel as very "OK" - and not a good value. Next time we will stay at the Marriott.

Small rooms and overpriced

from A TripAdvisor Member
We arrived for the Law Enforcement Memorial Week on May 10th to a room that was VERY small and a bathroom in need of serious repairs. The water needed to run for several minutes before you could even begin to experience a warm shower and the porcelain and caulking around the tub was chipped and dirty. The faucet handle fell apart numerous times.....much easier to temporarily repair it ourselves than request assistance or a room change. I read other postings on this site regarding the dilapidated bathrooms. What was I thinking? Our experience wasn't going to be any different! I must have been in denial when I booked our reservation.
Hyatt charges WAY too much for these small and "wanna bet?" 3-star rooms. Take it from all of the postings you read here. Spend your money elsewhere. The location was ideal and very conveniently close to Metro. (about the only thing Hyatt didn't stretch the truth about on their website)
