I love this place! A review of Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa
I have been to the Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa over 20 times, and I am in love with the place. If you are going to visit Hot Springs, staying here is a must. It is located right in the middle of downtown Hot Springs. Bathhouse Row is on one side of the street next to the Arlington, and many shops are located on the other side. The hotel is clean, spacious, and historic. My favorite thing about this hotel is that on the weekends, they have a live band down in the lobby and lots of people get up and dance. I also enjoy sitting out on the porch and watching all the activity of this beautiful resort town. The only thing i dislike about this hotel is that some of the staff treat you differently based on appearances. I have had problems with this on two occassions. Once, a friend of mine had just gotten to the hotel, so she looked a little rough. She had to ask the front desk for something, and i remember they gave her a hard time. I was dressed up to go out, and when i went to take care of this problem, they were extremely courteous. Another time, i had a friend that had just woken up...we were going on an outdoor adventure tour that day, so she went down to have breakfast in some of her outdoor clothes. The wait staff was somewhat unfriendly, but when my mother got down, they very very nice. I am not sure if it is age, or appearance, but it seems that some of the staff change their behavior based on these things. A lot of places are like that, though, i guess. Anyway, i love this place!
