Very Good 8.0
Make no mistake about it, WhyHotel Arlington Pentagon Columbia Pike is a luxury stay at a budget price. I ended up with a corner 2 bd/2 ba unit that drew oohs and aahs when I entered. It is like having your own condo in another city. The unit was like new and in pristine condition. There is even a full grocery store downstairs which made it super convenient as I was there for the weekend prior to my business meetings. There were only 2 downsides to my stay with the first being noted in the WhyHotel details online. (1) There is no easy way to get to public transportation or downtown. Your only options are Uber/Lyft or the bus, with the latter adding considerably to your commute time into the city. Uber/Lyft was easy and not too costly, though there aren't any easy places on the street for them to park when picking up and dropping off. (2) The unit above me (I was in room 413) clearly has a family living in it. They had a child (I am assuming) that ran around until 2AM in the morning which kept me up, and on the other nights there was either a lot of stomping from the adults or running noises from the child until well past midnight. The only option I had was to keep the unit's fan on high all night to block some of the noise. Despite these two issues above, I will happily stay at WhyHotel on future business tris to DC. The pros far outway any cons, especially considering the price.

this pop-up hotel is really Great! The rooms are apartments waiting to be rented. I stayed in a fully furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, full kitchen and living room apartment for a great price! It was a little interesting to find the front desk, but the desk person found me in the garage and brought me to my destination! If you have a chance to ever stay in a Whyhotel - Do it!

Excellent Stay!
The apartment I stayed in was spotless and beautifully furnished. Very private and safe, which meant a lot to me being a female businesswoman traveling alone. Mary is the person who checked me in and was wonderful. She knew I had had a difficult day of travel and did everything she could to welcome me and make me feel comfortable.

Needed a hotel for a business trip. Location of the hotel was convenient, everything was new and in great condition, and it was very quiet. Also appreciated the convenience of having a Harris Teeter in the same building.

Superlative in Every Category
Best stay I have had in years. Whatever the category, this place was superlative. I hear they are opening new locations, too. I definitely will stay here next time I'm in Arlington or anywhere else WhyHotel operates.

I wasn’t familiar with the area. Staff (women who’s name I forgot) tried to assist me with finding the entrance Via phone. Unfortunately I was still unable to find the entrance. She went above to coming out to see if I was in the right area 🙂. She didn’t have to but was more then willing to which I really appreciated. Easy check in. Great customer service! I would book again.
