Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Arlington Courthouse Plaza
More than I ever expected
My husband and I were so pleased with this hotel. As soon as we entered the lobby, I was impressed with the staff and the interior. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Housekeeping done a wonderful job every day of cleaning. It was located in a very safe part of town....next to the police department. The Metro was about a half a block away. We parked the car and did not move it until we left Arlington. The restaurant was great and the staff was wonderful. When we return next year with our family, we will once again be spending our nights at the Hilton.
What a Beautiful Hotel!!!!
This was a wonderul hotel. Our room was beautful and the beds were soooo comfy. Well worth the value. Room service was awesome and they showed a genuine concern for our comfort during our stay. We will definitely return soon!
Ideal choice for my needs
The hotel met all my needs -- it's updated (new?), reasonably attractive (albeit generic, "anywhere USA"), well-maintained, quiet, has an easy-access location, refrigerator, microwave & coffee maker, cable TV, individual temperature control, good-size desk, helpful & friendly staff (especially housekeepers, doormen & restaurant staff), breakfast buffet (extra cost, but convenient, lots of fresh fruit), good shower pressure, and good counter space in the bathroom (I have a long list). Farmers Market on Saturday mornings just across the street, AMC movie theaters next to the Metro. The Metro stop was close enough so that I didn't need to rent a car. I would've appreciated a shuttle to & from the airport (cab cost $15 from National Airport), and the desk employees were indifferent, but overall, I was very pleased with my 5-night stay.
A Fine Place To Stay
Plastic plants in the lobby or not, this is an excellent choice for the business traveler. This stay was my second visit to the Court House Garden Inn, and it was every bit as good as the first. The big draw for me is the free in-room high-speed internet. I tend to need to get a lot of web-based work done and the fast connection is worth its weight in gold. Moving on to other things: It's summer here now and that means lots of heat and humidity. The air conditioner in my room was quite robust and I had to turn it down to stay warm! This place is clean, quiet, and secure. It's just a nice place to stay.
All around wonderful hotel!!!
During our entire stay, even upon checking in at 12:30am, the staff was wonderful! Very helpful, friendly, professional and accomodating. The hotel was very nice; clean, spacious rooms with an overall comfortable atmosphere. Rooms were complete with refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker (with Starbucks coffee!). Housekeeping kept our room clean and fresh everyday of our stay! Hotel was a 5 minute walk to the Metro station and close to restaurants. 10 minute Metro ride into the city. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.
Hilton Plastic Garden Inn
- close to metro, to go to the center of Washington DC
- nice rooms
- rather expensive
- most plants and flowers in the hotel are PLASTIC (so "Hilton Plastic Garden Inn" would be a more appropriate name. For most Europeans, plastic plants and flowers are a strong sign of bad taste and cheap interior design. It is better NOT to have any plants than to have plastic plants !
Fantastic Experience at Hilton Garden Inn
This is my final night of a four night stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, Arlington, VA. It has been a pleasant experience from the moment I checked in. Nick at the desk when I checked in was very pleasant, friendly and helpful. The decor was tasteful and warm. There's a fireplace on two separate walls in the lobby. Fresh baked cookies each morning at the desk and apples throughout the day. Housekeeping did an excellent job. Microwave, refrig, cable with HBO etc. free. Complimentary (free), yes free hi-speed internet in rooms. Nice desk. Two minutes walk from Metro (underground). With train transfer, Arlington National Cemetary less than 10 minutes away. George Washington University is less than 10 minutes and the Capital Mall 15-20. I paid $169/night. Bargain for the Nation's Capital. Would stay again.
Nice stay at the Hilton Garden Inn!
We thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay at the Hilton Garden Inn-Arlington! From the front desk personnel to the morning breakfast staff to the friendly bartenders in the Courthouse Lounge to the shuttle drivers, everyone was welcoming and helpful. The shuttle driver even took us to Iwo Jima and waited while we briefly walked around the site and snapped pictures. The room was comfortable and nicely-appointed. Breakfast (while not included with the room) was excellent, including, for example, omelettes made to order, lots of fresh fruit, bakery, cereal, and juice.
Easy access to the Metro (one block away) and the Courthouse Plaza made it a very convenient place to stay. The hotel is only about a 10-12 minute taxi or metro ride to all the action in D.C. We would recommend this hotel to business and leisure travelers alike!
P.S. There is an excellent Thai restaurant in the Courthouse Plaza as well as a fun Irish pub/restaurant about two blocks away.
This hotel is great. The rooms are really nice and the bed is super comfortable. In addition, the staff was very helpful with directions.
The business center is open 24 hours a day and parking is free. It is literally a 5 minute walk to the Orange Line of the Metro. We loved it!
I've become a big fan of Hilton Garden Inn hotels and have stayed at many across the US on business and leisure trips over the past year.
They are consistently good. And this property is one of the best.
Impeccably clean, very conveniently located in the Courthouse/Clarendon district of Arlington (close to restaurants, bars, supermarkets and Metro) and with simply the most efficient and helpful staff I have ever experienced at any hotel. Room service dining was good and moderately priced. Free parking, although the spaces fill up and the garage gets a little bit tight. But you can park and walk / Metro to wherever you need to go in Virginia or DC. Top marks all round.

Much to the chagrin of all passengers, the engine did not start. The pilot announced a maintenance crew should arrive shortly to install a new part.

We knew it was correct - all of them appeared to be in the Smithsonian while we were there! It was absolutely packed as every tourist in Washington tried to get refuge from the rain.

After clearing the collision scene (delay of 41 minutes), we sailed along the rest of the way. Entered Delaware at 1:12 and made a rest stop at Delaware House along Interstate 95 at 1:24. Departed again at 1:39, entered Maryland at 1:45, went through the I-895 Baltimore tunnel at 2:34, and then exited south onto I-97 at 2:42 for the unusual way into Washington.
