It took me a while to find the place -- I was looking for a sign that said "Clarion," but there is nothing that says Clarion on the outside of the hotel. I circled the block twice before I figured out that this was the hotel -- and it was late at night after a long night of work, so I wasn't happy. It was a freezing night, so I was happy to find a parking […] space and get inside. But when I checked in, I found that there was an additional charge for parking, and the desk clerk sent me back out into the cold to go across the parking lot and put a parking pass in my car. I think that hotels should incorporate the parking fee into their rates and not surprise their guests with a additional parking fee (and this would also avoid making guests go back out to their cars on a freezing night). Other than those two problems, it was a very nice looking hotel and attractive room. And breakfast was very good, and was served in a nice dining room on the 8th floor, with a view of the surrounding area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel near Washington, D.C."
Great family experience. Wife loved the room, since it had a sink, refrigerator, microwave, and a table.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel near the Courthouse Metro Station"
Good price for the service to include the breakfast buffet. The only thing I would add to the breakfast, fruits.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fair sub to D.C hotels"
Very good location. Minutes by car or by Metro to the Mall. Many places to eat nearby. Spacious suites. I recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Some great - some a bit off."
We booked our room to be close to Washington, DC and the Metro, with the location hard to beat for both. The staff was excellent and the room very comfortable for three people (adult and one teen girl). However, we had a problem with the room as the AC breaker panel in the room had a habit of clicking at the wee hours or the morning. When advised to […] fix the issue the hotel did nothing. And I mean nothing. Also, there was a large full length mirror in the room and it covered one of the few electrical outlets in the room available for re-charging our electronics. How this mirror could be installed in this fashion is beyond me and shows a lack of attention to detail in their rooms and how they work for the guests. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay"
The hotel was very nice. The only problem was traffic work and the sign which did not say Clarion. Both things made it difficult to find the hotel easily the first time. The roadwork made it difficult to get there sometimes even after you knew where it was.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really enjoyed my stay"
I stayed in one of the suites and had a very comfortable stay. Was only there for one day but the service, food, and room size were great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great room and location, food was okay and free"
The room and hotel was very nice and in a great location to get to the DC sights. Our room was VERY BIG, with a full kitchen, I could live there!! The free breakfast was pretty darn good. The free dinner on Mondays- Wed was just okay, but hey, it was free. This would be a great place for a family with hungry kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean, convenient, well-equipped, spacious.Genuine Expedia guest review
Your beds were hard and not good at all. This is the only reason we cannot stay again and I am so sorry we can't because everything else was wonderful. But to hurt (both of us) from your beds ruined our days of visiting Washington DC and we are just sick about that. We don't get many vacations and are disappointed that bad beds made such a difference. […] Last year we stayed in a hotel with wonderful beds and it makes all the difference. I would think with all the baby boomers traveling, you would be more interested in providing good beds. Lynn and Paul Sansale Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Great Choice!"
Good location by metro, big nice room with all amenities in the room and a decent free breakfast as well as dinner on a few days of the weekGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was one of the nicest places we've ever stayed at - other than trying to find it (due to road construction right in front and around the building). Very quiet, nice neighborhood, comfortable bed and sitting area. Staff was friendly and helpful in all respects. This was a bargain and we'll definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"touring in D.C.Close to Metro and many restaurants"
Enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious and comfortable with a large refrigerator, microwave, sink and supplied with dishes, silverware, pots and pans. Washer and dryer on the floor. Breakfast was hot and good and they had a satisfactory evening meal the day we were there, if you didn't want to go out. Hotel was well maintained though not new. Metro […] was easy walking distance to the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was an outstanding hotel. Clean, huge rooms, very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Parking costs extra. I would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I thought it was a great room, very courteous staff. A little annoyed by the parking situation. Paid $15 for parking and I had to create a spot given availability. Wish I was informed that the room keys needed to be returned to the front desk or we will be charged for the keys.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful room and facilities in room. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were very helpful. The shuttle was most helpful (although I did not realize that it only started at 9AM on Saturday and that presented a problem as I was late for my seminar at another hotel). We were close to some excellent restaurants, especially enjoyed "Ray's the Stea […] ks". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Address of hotel."
The exact address for the hotel was not easy to find. We missed the turn onto the property and had to go around Arlington to find it again. And, we were looking for the "Clarion Hotel" to be visible on the building.Genuine Expedia guest review
When I walked into the hotel lobby I felt like more of a luxury apartment than a hotel. The rooms was beyond my expectations. The gym was above average. The breakfast was hot and tasted pretty darn good. I would certainly recommend this place to a friend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There was a lot of construction going on around the hotel making it difficult to see. When I originally booked the room I requested a king bed in the room but the room they first gave us had two queen beds. The hotel gladly switched us to the intended room. The television reception was poor. The complimentary dinner was rice beans burritos and salad […] which really didn't appeal to me. Breakfast was much better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth it."
The a/c was not working in either my room or my parents room ( untill the last night ours worked, my folks room, not so much). The rooms were 79-80 degrees according to the thermostat. Reported to front desk several times. There was some group staying there 'chilian military group' according to a sign in the lobby, and they were loud in the halls late […] at night and running up and down the halls. I spoke to front desk about it, but can only assume that they never talked to these people because it never stopped. Upon arrival there was dirt or something on the sheets, it looked like they had not been changed. The parking lot was nothing special and half empty, for the price of the room, I think parking should have been included. The breakfast was okay. The printer was not cooperating when I wanted to print my boarding pass, and the gal at the desk had no idea what to do. My hubby is good with computers and came down and fixed whatever was wrong. They increased prices due to the group (I think) because I payed a lot more than my folks did and they had a nicer room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is super clean, the rooms really nice and comfortable. The attached kitchenette in our room was a big plus, its about half a mile from the metro station which isn't bad. For its price point I felt this was a pretty good deal. The morning breakfast was all-right, though it got a lot of praise in the other reviews, maybe an off day while we […] were there. My only complaint would be that the front desk seemed a little under-enthusiastic to help out, they looked like college kids working part time who had better/bigger things on their mind then speeding up my check-in/out. Parking for fifteen bucks a night was ok but not great I guess. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to DC sights"
Hotel was very nice, clean and our suite was quite large. Had problem with beds. I booked 2 queen bed suite and was given a king bed suite. I needed accessible bathroom and was not told (at check in) about switch in rooms. There was 3 adults for this room so 1 king did not work. We were given 2 rollaway beds at no charge. I feel hotel did a bait and […] switch on us. Needless to say I was not happy with my experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel but not so nice service"
I stayed there with my friends and my boyfriend during the labor day weekend. Overall, the hotel is nice and located in a nice neighborhood as well. They also upgraded my room which is super. However, the room service is not really nice. First of all since my room is in the end of the hallway, I got no wi-fi service. Second one, the phone in my room […] was broken. We tried to call the maintenance, he came but he didn't replace it with a new one. The phone doesn't really matter actually because we didn't use it anyway. The third one and the most important one that made me upset was the broken glass of a bottle. We found 2 pieces of broken glass of a bottle on the floor in our room! My boyfriend stepped on one of the broken glass and it wounded his foot. It's a disappointment that a nice hotel like that doesn't really clean the room very well which ends up injuring the guest. I just hope that this won't happen again in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Me and my father stayed at Clarion Suites for a couple of nights when we visited Washington D.C. The hotel room was clean and spacious. The Breakfast was good and the attendants treated us well. The only con I see is the steep walk up from the hotel to the Courthouse Metro station which is few blocks away. All in all it was a good experience staying […] at the Clarion.

"10 min. from major memorials in DC"
If you tell them you have a car, you will be charged $15 per night of your stay. There is parking on the street surrounding hotel. Currently there is major construction surrounding hotel. The hotel rooms are dated, but clean, spaceous and include full size refrigerator, sink, dishes/pots, dish washer and mircowave. The breakfast was good, real hot food, […] but get there early because they run out near closing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Decent place, nice room with small kitchen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We got to hotel and were surprised with a free upgrade to a huge two BR suite, complete with 2 bathrooms, kitchen, LR, and dining room. It was a wonderful surprise. Just wish the hotel had a shuttle from airport or to the closest sites instead of only to the subway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"it's an awesome experience"
If was wonderful. The room was so spacious. It's not what we expected with the price we paid it exceeds our expectation. The breakfast were great. The hotel was accessible to the metro to go to main spot in DC like the MALL. We did enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location with a short (though uphill) walk to Metro station. Good breakfast. Hotel needs complete refurbish. Booked a two queen suite and was given a king suite instead. After asking what they would do for me, was upgraded to a very large two king bedroom suite with full kitchen. Oddly enough, the one bedroom that stayed coldest had portable (on […] wheels) air conditioner duct-taped to the window. It's a pet friendly hotel so when I ran into a Great Dane in the parking light one night and the dog barking across the hall every time someone came close, I wasn't surprised.

"Good Hotel for a fair price"

"DST SororityCentennial Convention Stay"
Enjoyed the stay, the rooms are very spacious with a full kitchen and large bathroom. The walk to the metro station may well be quite the challenge for some as it's quite a steep incline to get there, one wrong step and you're rolling down hill. Breakfast was really good, the sausage was the best! Didn't get to try the dinner as we were at the convention […] center during that time. The front desk staff needs some improvement, they definitely don't go out of there way to please. The shuttle is virtually useless unless your timing is just right. Nice selection of places to eat within walking distance of the hotel. All in all I would stay here again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location near Courthouse Metro"
The plus: I stayed with my wife in a large King suite in the 5th floor. The kitchenette is large, and the room size was really good. The room was comfortable, but the cleanliness could have been a little bit better. No bed bugs at all. Comfortable bed and pillows. Also the TV was good enough, with a good selection of channels. The location in Arlington […] is really good, close to bars and food places, and one block away from the Courthouse Metro Station. Breakfast is included, but with very limited options. The cons: The front desk staff was not good at all. No uniform, very informal attention, and borderline between informality and rudeness. You can notice the lack of maintenance in some areas of the hotel, and the elevators are not clean, even smelly. Also even thought there is a small slope that you need to climb for about a block in order to get to the Metro station. They do provide shuttle services to a mile around, probably because of this. Housekeeping did not replenished soap and shampoo for two days, I needed to ask in front desk for this. Overall it is a 3 star hotel and a cheap choice in the expensive Washington DC area. I did not travel by car, but parking is free and convenient. It's a nice hotel that has probably seen better times in the past. If you are looking for good attention and service, you may want to go to a more well know hotel brand. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent Rooms, Great Breakfast in a so-so locati"
Our room was huge, more like a small apartment than a hotel room. The bathroom was as large as one in a single family home. We loved the room, and could even see the top of the Washington Monument from our balcony. The free breakfast was also very good, with plenty of hot choices served up each morning. The location was OK. Nothing scary, a nice neighborhood, […] but it was a few blocks away from the nearby restaurants and shops. The walk to the nearest Metro station is about half a mile, walking up a fairly steep hill. Nevertheless, we would return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for the price"
This hotel is well situated if you are visiting Arlington. It is within walking distance to restaurants, metro stations and other services. The rooms are spacious and come equipped with a large living area, complete with desk, internet, sofa, refrigerator, appliances, etc. The bedroom size is adequate with a very comfortable mattress. The entire suite […] is kept very clean and cooled by an easily controlled thermostat. Early in the morning, a fire alarm went off which facilitated the evacuation of all hotel guests. No announcement were made, everyone had to assume there was a fire. After the fire dept allowed us to return to our rooms, there was no effort made to offer an explanation to the guests about what caused this and there were no managerial staff present to come to the parking lot to allay any concerns that some might have had. I think this might have been handled differently and some effort should have been made to leave messages for the guests or had a follow up e-mail the day afterwards.

We stayed in the 2 queen bed suite. The room surpassed my expectations. The room said it had a kitchen. For the price, I expected a small fridge and microwave with a sink and counter.
