Room & Suite (201)
Pool & Beach (18)


This majestic icon is perfectly located in Hot Springs National Park on beautiful Bathhouse Row. Since 1925 visitors have traveled to Hot Springs to stay, play and rejuvenate in the healing mineral waters of the natural thermal springs. Step back in time walking in the footsteps of such famous legends as Babe Ruth, Al Capone, Rudolph Valentino, Jack Dempsey, Lucky Luciano, Joe DiMaggio, Will Rogers, Johnny Cash, Marilyn Monroe and Presidents: John F. Kennedy, Theodore Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton. Feel the romance and charm of this culturally historic place. Experience a traditional bath at The Arlington Bathhouse or simply step outside to enjoy shopping, dining, and entertainment at the Ohio Club, the Pancake Shop, Gangster Museum, Superior Bathhouse Brewery or take a cupcake break at Fat Bottom Girls. If nature calls, hike or bike miles of scenic trails in our first National Park or try your luck digging for diamonds or playing the ponies or slots at Oaklawn Casino.

I have been staying at the Arlington for short vacations since the late 1980's. My daughters are in their 20's and they still love to go. It's an historic building, folks, if you want a crispy new hotel find somewhere else and leave the Arlington to those of us who know and

My 12 year old son and I decided to make an impromptu weekend trip to Hot Springs. I knew it would be busy due to spring break. I, however, did not take into consideration that it was also St Patrick’s day weekend and had no idea they were holding a huge horse racing event that

We are very sorry that your stay here was disappointing, especially after looking forward to it for so long.

We are working hard to improve and are excited about renovation to take place in the near future. We hope you will reconsider your decision not to return. We would welcome another opportunity to serve you under better circumstances.
