PERFECT Service, PERFECT beds!!from Valensander
Along with the excellent service in this hotel, the rooms are huge and the beds make you want to stay in them for the rest of your life....
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't need to stay in the heart of the city. The connections to the city-center are great with the free shuttle bus taking you to the Metro/Subway.
Perfect in every way. I want to go back any time!
Nice Hotel... Beware of Orbitzfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I bought my reservation on Orbitz and was sorely disappointed. I reserved a oversized king suite with a view of the city. The day before I called and confirmed that that was what my reservation said. They confirmed that and assured me I would get that room. The next day we arrived and were given a tiny room on the third floor overlooking some delapidated housing. I was very unhappy. they did nothing to acommodate me. I am a Starwood Hotels Club Memeber and I thought I would have been taken care of, but the staff did not seem to care.
Beware of buying a room at this hotel from orbitz. Pay a little more and get the room you really want.
The mattresses were wonderful and very comfy. I will say that room service and the bar closed entirely too early (Midnight) as we wanted a late night snack and were disappointed to find we would have to use the vending machine. :(
Nice hotel to stay in for business, but this was my anniversary and it was not very special.
Loved the stafffrom A TripAdvisor Member
The bathroom was large with a separate sink area just outside the door and plenty of toiletries and towels. My roomie and I both had trouble with the water temperature. It took quite a while to get warm and then got scorchingly hot very quickly. Strange and slightly inconvenient. Maid service was excellent.
I used the fitness center each morning, and it was adequate and quiet at the times I used it, but not many people have to exercise at 5 AM before touring with 13 year-olds unitl 9 PM. :)
But the absolute best part of the stay was the super friendly staff. One of our girls accidently left her pillow in a room when she was switched to a new one. The staff tried their very best to locate it. They were very polite and patient with our students. They were so pleasant when I called to set wake up calls that I went to bed with a smile on my face. I certainly hope we can stay here again in 2006.
Great Hotelfrom M2inApril
Thoroughly mediocrefrom lalimama
Great Hotelfrom LizC
The front desk staff was excellent. Very helpful and informative. We were given a room on the 3rd floor with 2 doubles. I asked for a king and they immediately moved us to the 11th floor. We were in room 1125 and it was spotless, huge, and well decorated. We had a view of some apartment complexes. Best views of DC are probably on the even numbered side. Avoid staying on the lower floors as they do seem to be right off of the street and may be noisy. Lobby was very nice.
Buffet breakfast was great. Food was fresh and tasty. It was about $12 each. We about about $40 worth of food a piece it was so good.
Parking is $16/day and you do get in and out privileges. I didn't think the price was too bad considering some hotels closer to the city charge $30. The garage was well lit.
Overall, a great hotel and I will stay there again without a doubt
Good Value for Moneyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I was given a double room on the ninth floor facing Washington DC. The room was large with a King size bed, desk and television cabinet. Some of the major sites of Washington could be seen from the room window (Pentagon, Washington Monument, Captiol etc). The service provided by the front desk staff was very good.
The room was clean, but was starting to show signs of age. A large 20cm long crack was evident in the bathroom sink. This sink should have been repaired/replaced a long time ago.
The free hotel shuttle bus is a necessity as the hotel is not located near any public transport (or anything else useful for visitors). The shuttle bus drops off/picks up at the Pentagon City Metro station and National Airport (DCA). The shuttle bus pickup times at Pentgon City appear to be very erratic and patience will definately be required by those using this service.
At US$69/night (+taxes), the Sheraton National Hotel represents very good value for money, provided you can accept being located outside the Washington DC city centre and the approximatley 30 minute trip (shuttle bus/metro) each way to get to/from the city centre.
Very Nicefrom Lambdachi6
Top Local Tips for Arlington
Concerts - Shopping - Restaurants Go down (south ) Columbia Pike from the hotel (Sheraton National) and turn right on South Joyce. The shopping area with restaurants and free concerts is on your left. Metered parking inside and around.
August weather August is not a good time to visit the DC area because of the hot and humid conditions. Bring your shorts, and walking shoes!
Destination DC Sightseers Arlington is a terrific way to see everything in DC but not staying "in the city".
