There is a simple but adequate free breakfast (yogurt, breads with toaster, cream cheese, butter, jelly, fruit, coffee/tea). There is a good diner (the Silver Arrow) an easy walk away...

If you are visiting DC and want a nice, clean, moderately priced hotel that is convenient and two blocks from the Metro the Highlander is for you. Admittedly it is an older property, but it was well maintained and the staff was overly friendly and accommodating. I travel ALL over the world and enjoy staying at non-brand chain hotels at...

Free parking, convenient location in Arlington 2-3 blocks from the Virginia Square metro station. ( It's about 15 minutes on the Metro to the Smithsonian.) The staff is very friendly...

I stayed at the Highlander a numerous times when, post 911, I had to do a lot of military reserve duty in Arlington. They were always good to me and it sure was nice to have a place to stay which was within walking distance of my duty station. I returned to the Highlander last week for the funeral of...
