The hotel is at a great location where it's walking distance to the capitol, only a quarter mile walk to the Potomac and another 1/2 mile to get to Abraham Lincoln Memorial. The hotel does offer you parking for $23 per night. I guess it's better than parking it outside at a public parking lot for $25.
Clean rooms, friendly staff, quiet location.
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 Although I heard some criticism about the outdated décor, the property is extremely clean and it has a warm ambiance.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.
"very nice hotel closed to the airport Metro train"
I will stay at this hotel again I have already talkto some friend and co -worker after reading some comment from some past guest it really exceed my expectiation the front desk staff and housekeeping staff was very very good and shuttle bus driver was also good I living in boston and people there is much more pleasant. this was the first time I have been to Arlington Virginia my tour on the trolley was excellent
4 friends decided to come to D.C. for the weekend to enjoy some history. Because the parking is such a problem in D.C., we decided to stay at the Best Western Rosslyn / Iwo Jima and take a cab in. I have stayed here before and found it a great location at a great price. The room was clean, beds were comfortable, shower had great pressure and the fact that most parking was in the garage was a plus. There were no car doors or headlights shining in our room. It's an older building but it is well maintained and in a safe neighborhood. I would stay here anytime. The desk staff was pleasant and very helpful. I've already recommended it to my friends.
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...
