Rated 4 out of 5 by Nancy56 2 night stay for family business
The hotel was very nice and conveniently located for our purposes. It was very nice to be able to get out and walk around the stadium and park/pond. We stayed on the Club level. The snacks were good, they charged for beer and wine, saved a little on beer but much better selection of wine in bar downstairs. Breakfast was pretty good, a breakfast "eggroll" , then some other cold items, fruit, cereal , muffins,etc. Loved having Starbucks coffee both in the room and in the Club level lounge. Overall a good stay, would stay there again. Oh, and the pool was very nice!

Rated 3 out of 5 by slp22 Good stay but Club level not worth it
Great overall stay with nice amenities. Loved the downstairs bar area and restaraunt. I stayed in the club level because the hotel operator told me that there was a private bar or lounge upstairs that would provide complimentary alchoholic beverages as well as snacks, drinks, bottled water, breakfast and privacy all within my hotel rate. When I got there this wasnt true at all. The bar tender told me that they now charge for all drinks and the breakfast was simply basic pastrys. I was very disappointed as I would have never paid the additional rate ... They tried to charge me $20 more for my rate apon checkout but the staff corrected it at my request. Very friendly staff and it was a good stay just not worth the club level.

Rated 4 out of 5 by scrapper75 Parking Issue
I have stayed at this Sheraton many times and was very disappointed at the parking issue for hotel guests. There was a Texas Ranger game on Wed night and we had gone out to eat for dinner, we returned around 7:15 pm from dinner and the hotel was selling parking spaces to Ranger fans...not a problem except they did not save any spaces for PAYING hotel guests. They told us to valet and they would comp the valet fee...the $12.00 valet fee showed up on our bill at checkout. They hotel did take the fee off when he inquired, but it's a very deceptive practice. This should be fixed...not good business. Other than this the room was good and the hotel was clean and I would recommend to others...just check your bill before you leave!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ElevatorNoise Make sure you specify to not be put by elevators
When I checked in, the employee assisting me did get me checked in quickly, however he didn't offer any information on where to go for the breakfast that was included in my room rate. I have never been to a hotel where the employee checking me in didn't make an effort to let me know when and where breakfast was. Also, they put me in a room located directy behind the elevators. Needless to say, I got no sleep due to listening to the elevators go up and down all night long. Make sure you request not to be booked into one of these rooms if you stay here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike21 Great hotel with a great View and even better staff
I have been to Washington dozen of times and stayed both in the city and on the outskirts. This was my first time at this hotel and I was wooried about the shuttle. The hotel has 3 shuttles and they are the most reliable ones I ever have taken. This is a very nice hotel that makes up on its few minor shortcomings with great staff and customer service. From checking in with Lemar at the front desk, he knows the true meaning of customer service and he was very nice. One of the best front desk staff I have ever met. He knew my wife and I just arrived tired after a 4 hour drive and went out of his way to make us feel welcome and get us to our room ASAP. The hotel garage is very convenient and the Concierge Lounge for starwwod members is one of the best. We visited it in the evening and in the morning and the offerings are great. It has to have the best view of Washington DC I have ever seen. The lady in the lounge went out of her way in the evening to show us all of the locations and we had a nice conversation with her. this staff is one of the most attentive I have ever seen and I have over 50 stays at Starwood properties this year. This hotel is a must stay and I definately will return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by thedukes2000 Sheraton as expected, less the new "aroma"
First visit & first impression - a "skink" i called it to the front desk. They said it was the new SPG-mandated fragrance - Mocha. I tried not to be rude, but was - let it slip I'll call it Sheraton Stink. It was overpowering, but fortunately, did not make it up to the rooms. When I stepped into the office the next morning, about four nicely dressed office staff was there. When I mentioned I found it overpowering, and even a bit "gross," you would have thought by looks on face of each and every one of the four that I had just called the mothers or babies ugly. Oh well, I came back again, and the Sheraton "aroma" as just as prevalent. At least i was not surprised, and I kept my mouth shut. Rest of feedback on hotel is Sheraton standard - good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KandJ This hotel is not worth the money
There were stains on the carpet, upholstered chairs, bedding, and even down the hallway. There was something sticky on the guest services book. The bedding looked wrinkly like it was wadded up in a ball before it was put on the bed. The club lounge was disappointing. The first time we went up there to check out the "all day snacks" there was a big bowl with remnants of peanuts and a few granola bars, not impressive. When we went back for the continental breakfast, the small amount of food that we did see looked picked over and not appealing. The only thing we really enjoyed about this hotel was that we could walk to the ball game, but when it was raining and we asked for the "free shuttle" that was advertised they told us it was not available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by robto Is Shearaton going out of business?
My stay was marked by inconsistencies.
The first room "upgrade" was a small room next to elevator. Noise level did not permit a good night rest. The lounge was closed two of the three days. Although I got a breakfast voucher, the restaurant did not have all menu items and had to wait 45 minutes to get service. Despite being a game day frankly the hotel service and staff's attitude appeared/behaved as if the hotel was going out of business. Staff exhibited some of the same problems noted at the Maria Isabel facility in Mexico City.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ntxmom3 Disappointing
We made reservations months ago - my son was getting married and had his reception there. So there were several family members that stayed there also.
When we arrived - the reservation was not correct. Was supposed to be for a Jr. Suite with 2 double beds, and pull out couch. They one king size bed room, no refrigerator nothing. We made do for two nights but was not what we reserved & had not were to keep drinks cold etc.
Very disappointing with all the money spent there for the reception, several rooms, etc. The staff at the front counter didn't seem to concerned that the reservation wasn't correct. We were also told on the phone that some rooms include breakfast and ours might. At the hotel we were told nothing about breakfast included or not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alexis403 This hotel needs updating
The hotel seems to be a bit outdated. The walls need a new coat of paint and the room decor needs updating. The shower was stained and there was hardly any room in the bathroom to move around.
The marketplace needs healthier food options to make it easy when you are on the go.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ThatOne Can't believe this is a convention hotel
I was extremely disappointed in the hotel as a convention hotel. Our room was not ready until after 7:30 p.m. We ate in the restaurant for lunch one day. The restaurant was horribly understaffed. My friend and I ordered at the same time. However, her lunch took 45 minutes longer to be delivered to our table. We missed a session at our conference because lunch took almost 2 hours. As a convention hotel, I would expect a much higher level of preparedness.

Sheraton Arlington is the best hotel that I have ever stay at. The entire staff was very friendly, caring and helpful. It was easy to see that the staff enjoyed doing their jobs. They treated you as if they had been your friend for years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Leonard13 Hotel Great - Shuttle Service the WORST
The Sheraton Arlington should get out of the shuttle service. It was nice to be picked up at DFW and i realize their were over 400 people registered for my conference, I understood the wait and the trip of a little over an hour. Do not tell me that you will take you to a near by restaurant and that you will pick me up and return to the hotel. After I called to be picked up at the restaurant, it was over an hour before you showed at the restaurant.
The trip back took less than 5 minutes with a stop to pick up another guest.

Staff was unfriendly and not very helpful. When I went to the restaurant they acted as though I was bothering them from their other duties. They didn't seem to be concerned when we had other needs like the internet kept floating in and out.
I love Starwood and have never had service like this in any of the hotels I have stayed in... I am still a starwood fan but when in Arlington will stay at a different location

Rated 1 out of 5 by FrequentTraveller27 Does not return forgotten items
I stayed at this hotel and forgot my iPhone charger. Next day, I called them up to see if it's in lost and found. They said it will be deposited in lost and found and will confirm me. After multiple follow ups they never got back to me. Every time, they would say talk to housekeeping or talk to some one else. I wanted my charger immediately as phone was dead and no option to buy new/original one. I ave stayed at better hotels whose staff are honest and they are prompt in resolving issues and following up with consumer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RSBS Disappointed by housekeeping
The housekeeping was poor: the condition of the beds was unsatisfactory (the duvet cover was dirty with a broken zipper and the beds were sloppily/poorly made; also, when i went to straighten the bed after sleeping in it i found the mattress had no actual mattress cover, just a folded up and poorly placed bed sheet which was sitting atop a stained mattress); there was no shampoo or conditioner in the bathroom so when we went to wash up in a rush we had to stop what we were doing to call the front desk and request some, they did get it to us quickly; the curtain rod was about to pop out of the wall; the bathroom sink had nasty mold growing under the rim; the chairs in the room had dirty stains. Oh and as you walked down the hall to the room, you could smell mold quite definitively.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Luke106 Hotel looks nice enough...
Front desk clerk was very friendly. First impression of room was urine odor in bathroom. Bathrooms are very small, opening the door barely clears the toilet. Left for dinner & asked front desk to have bathroom floor mopped. 3 hrs later on return, it had not been touched. Contacted housekeeping that claimed it had been cleaned & sprayed with air freshner. How were they able to replicate items that we left on the floor? It had not been cleaned! Moving to another room was offered at almost 11pm...who wants to do that?

My wife and I travelled from Ottawa, Canada to Dallas to see our first ever Cowboys game on Thanksgiving. We had booked a different hotel online, site-unseen, and were fooled upon our arrival to that spot. The initial hotel that we booked was dirty, filthy and run-down. I searched multiple hotels in the area and finally fell upon the Sheraton. William greeted my exhausted wife and myself with open arms and a huge smile. He offered us a room (Thanksgiving week), and stated that he would make our stay worthwhile. He suggested restaurants, provided shopping directions, and we were over-joyed when we woke up on game day to find that the stadium was within walking distance. Thank you William for making our first vist to Dallas a historic one for this lifetime Cowboys fan!!! We will be back next year.

We paid extra for the club level. The mattress in our room needs replacement badly! Every time one of us would turn over the other person was almost seasick! Worse than being on a waterbed the spings are so shot! No bathrobes in our room, the side light by the bed did not work. Made me question what else could be wrong. No one explained that the club level was on floor 18. We were on 17 when we paid for club level so we walked all of 17 looking for it. Had to go back downstairs to ask. The card key kept not wanting to work in the elevator. So not worth the money we paid. Worse night sleep I've ever had at a hotel. Won't be back. The gentleman at the front - no smile, no warmness - looked mad. Staff needs retraining on customer service. Was a milestone celebration that turned out badly.

We stay here because it is within walking distance of the ballpark. However, the hotel is in need of some work. There was black mold growing in our bathroom in several places. It looks as if the A/C has been leaking. Also the ceiling in the room has damage from leaking. The hallway carpets were very dirty and as soon as we got off the elevator it smelled bad. The staff is great and the food is great and it is nice to be able to walk to games, but they need to do some repairs and cleaning.

Our stay at this Sheraton was a last minute ideal to get away. We could not have been more pleased with the hotel and our stay. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and the amenities are great!. The restaurants, gorgeous pool area, fitness center, and extremely courteous staff made this a great stay. We had a city view room which provided beautiful views of Washington D.C. especially at night. It is also very close to so many attractions and the national mall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by April2013 not the usual standard
Our focus was to find a hotel near the attractions we came for. We've always trusted any SPG hotel..however this location disappointed our expectations. We felt that because it held a Sheraton name, it didn't hold true this time when it comes to it's standard. We stayed executive level and breakfast was below expectations with little fresh fruit, and stale bagels. The hotel was loud and untidy in the reception area. With all the negatives, staff was friendly and listened to our concerns. Whether or not they will address the issues is another matter. Overall, our stay met our need for location. But that's it. If we had known about everything else, we could've stayed at another hotel and paid less. At least we would've had lower expectations instead of expecting the best which normally comes with a Sheraton name.
