No complaints at all. Staff and hotel was beautiful and very convenient to the metro and local dining. I wish I had known that you have to pay for parking ($20/day) but I would have had to pay it anyway...

This was my first time staying at this property and I have been staying in various hotels in the area for the past 2 months during my home leave before I transfer overseas, and the Virginian Suites by far is the best hotel stay I've had during my leave. It's ideally located; it's close to the Rosslyn metro which is about a 10 minute walk, or you can take the hotel complimentary shuttle that runs every 30 minutes. There are restaurants, supermarkets, and banks within walking distance. It's also close to the Foreign Service Institute and the Dept. of State for Foreign Service Officers. The staff is very accommodating and courteous and the property offers a daily complimentary breakfast and on Wednesday night there is a pizza dinner for all the residents (great for kids). Although I heard some criticism about the outdated décor, the property is extremely clean and it has a warm ambiance. I use to live in a building like this one in the late '80s in D.C. so it was a welcome flashback for me.
After weeks of eating in restaurants, it was very comforting to make my own dinner and store the leftovers in a full size refrigerator. Also for people who have sensitivities to hard water, you will be happy with the shower and water in the unit. The property must have a water softener because I had some of the best showers at this property. The bathtub is also big enough to take a comfortable bath. My only complaint about this property is that the complimentary coffee downstairs is awful.

Forget the Metro- nice as it is. For those looking to visit Arlington Cemetary and the National Mall memorials, stay here and use taxi cabs! Door to door for less than 10 bucks a pop (add tip please) without all the walking between metro, bus, and the sites you wish to visit.
These guys have a "real" free buffet in the mornings, and the staff were exceptionally helpfull to us first time visitors.
Once they saw my son's Iraq war veteran ball cap, they couldn't do enough for us.
It was humbling for us to receive such excllemt treatment.

"Great hotel, near Arlington Cemetary and Metro Tra"
Came to the area to visit Arlington Cemetary and see the Columbarium section. Wanted to be close to Arlington and near Metro. There is a link right in the hotel to walk down underground tunnel and get the Metro. 2 stops from the Pentegon and 3 stops to Arlington.
