Fodor's Expert Review Arlington Resort Hotel and Spa
239 Central Ave., Hot Springs, Arkansas, 71901, USA
An overnight stay at the Arlington is an immersion in Hot Springs history, including an authentic, old-fashioned bathhouse experience and, on request, a room with mineral water on tap. Or dance to live entertainment with a convivial blend of locals and tourists who gather in the expansive lobby, Thursday through Saturday nights. Dance to live big-band music one Sunday afternoon a month in the Crystal Ballroom, sponsored by the Hot Springs Jazz Society. Check its web site for dates. Jazz Society members admitted free; nonmembers, $10.
- great downtown location
- convenient to Bathhouse Row
- guest rooms are dripping with history, but not necessarily with all the technical updates expected by savvy business travelers
