Stayed here for 7 nights. Arrived about an hour and a half before the check-in time but the gentleman at the front-desk allowed me to check-in early since the room was ready, which was very nice of him.
The location is great. The Rosslyn Metro station is about an 8-10 minute walk away. Plenty of stores and restaurants are within walking distance. The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood, so it's generally safe and quiet, even at night.
Rosslyn Station is just a quick ride to downtown, the Smithsonian, the National Mall, and all the tourist attractions.
The room was decent size for 1 or 2 people. The view outside the window however, was basically just Arlington Blvd. The internet connection was fast and reliable.
The elevator was out of service for 2 days which wasn't a big inconvenience for me personally, but for those who have a physical disability or have heavy luggage, that could be a problem.
There is a free coffee and tea machine in the lobby, as well as a machine for drinking water.
The day I checked out, the staff at the front desk allowed me to keep my luggage at the desk for about 2 hours, since I had an evening flight back to Toronto. Which again, was very helpful of them.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is on a budget but still wishes to stay within close proximity to the DC Metro area. Not to mention, there is a Metro station within walking distance.
If you're looking for a decent hotel that's not too expensive and in a good location, the Best Western Rosslyn would be a great choice. less
