The Holiday Inn in Rosslyn, Arlington is a reasonably priced hotel in a great location just 50 yards from the Rosslyn Metro Station and only about 15 minutes from Georgetown if you are walking, less than five via taxi. This neighborhood has about 1,000 cafes open for lunch, and a handful of good dinner options as well.
The hotel itself stands about 17 stories high with half of the 307 rooms with views over the Potomac River toward Georgetown. Inside you'll find the Potomac Cafe, conference room, pool, fitness center, laundry, dry cleaning, and much more.
One of their best features is the Vantage Point Restaurant and Lounge on the top floor overlooking Georgetown (open daily for Breakfast 6:30am – 9:30am, Lunch 11:30am – 2:30pm, and Dinner from 5:30pm – 11:00pm). On the first floor you will find the Westpark Cafe, and the second floor has the Potomac Perk cafe with coffees and breakfast sandwiches.

I stayed here in 2008 while on a business trip to Rosslyn. The hotel was very convenient as I had meetings in an office building less than 5 minutes away on foot. I stayed in a smaller suite on the second floor that was clean and comfortable, the only problem being the coffee pot that did not work and it was not replaced even 24 hours after reporting it broken... luckily they have free coffee downstairs 24/7. The complimentary breakfast was surprisingly good and it included eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fresh waffles, cereal, fruit, juices, and much more.
Compared to other Residence Inns I have used, the rooms here are smaller than usual, but that is really the only drawback, and I'd gladly stay here again in the future.
This hotel might not be as nice as some other places I have stayed (like the Alexandria Weston), but its reasonable price for rooms and parking, nice amenities (like free wi-fi and breakfast), and good location more than make up for any shortcomings.
