I grew up in Arlington in the 60s-70s and always rember seeing the Highlander, which used to be named the Scotsman. Now I live in England and stay at the Highlander everytime I visit DC. The hotel is in an excellent location, the rooms are clean and the neighborhood is quiet. There is no internet service, the locks are flimsy, but I've never encountered any trouble there. The Metro is just a short walk and I can safely leave my rental car at the hotel and take the subway into DC or elsewhere. There is the American Diner just down the street towards Rosylyn across from a small coffe shop that serves great joe. It is nearby St. Charles Catholic Church and it is easy to attend a Mass during the weekday or Sunday. Many other churches are also nearby for worship servies. Further up the road is the Balston Commons shopping mall with theatres, shops and good food.
Overall this is my favorite hotel in Arlington. I have stayed there five times in last three years. Also, they have a nice new steam iron, which I donated to them during my last stay there.
