  • I Highly Recommend Them...
    "I work for the owner of the DoubleTree McLean Tysons as a purchasing agent for the Hospitality Group. During the past year, I have been working closely with the JVA Art Group team to source the guestroom room artwork page for the newly converted DoubleTree McLean Tysons. The JVA Team is very detailed and worked to ensure that all the artwork specifications were accurate and true to guestroom measurements. The attention to detail was very important as JVA provided the guestroom accent wall murals. The murals are very refined maps of the city of Tysons Corner, which means they had to be perfectly scaled and sized. Another challenge presented was the variation in guestroom wall length and height from floor to floor. JVA Artwork assisted in verifying measurements from floor to floor to ensure the final product would be installed correctly. Needless to say, the installation was completed without a hitch. All the product arrived on time and in proper condition. It has been more than a pleasure working with the entire JVA Art Group team and I highly recommend them for our next artwork project."

  • We Look Forward To A Long Working Relationship With JVA Art Group...
    "It is my pleasure to provide this business reference on behalf of Janet Van Arsdale and the JVA Art Group. JVA provided us with tasteful aesthetics for our medical office buildings by merging beautiful artwork with directional signage. We reviewed Janet’s photographs from around the world. The images we picked were then transferred onto large plexiglass panels and installed in our facility. JVA Art Group skillfully managed all facets of the project. Janet and her talented team of graphic artists make this phase of my job an enjoyable experience. We look forward to a long working relationship with JVA Art Group."

  • A Pleasure To Work With...
    "As always, it is such a pleasure to work with you and your very talented team of artwork designers and photographers, and you always seem to come up with such unusual concepts for our art, whether it is a Hilton, Marriott, Radisson or a boutique property. You put together such a great presentation for our clients, and they always are really impressed with how professional you all are. Your costs are always in line with our budgets, and we love how you work with us to be sure our design concepts become a reality. You are indeed one of our favorite vendors to work with, and we look forward to working with you on several more hospitality projects in the near future! Thanks for always consistently doing such an amazing job for us, we really appreciate all your hard work and talent, that exceeds anything we have seen from your competition! "

  • I Would Highly Recommend JVA Art Group!...
    "JVA was very easy to work with in regards to creating the artwork packages. In addition to sending us a large variety of photograph images to choose from, they were spot on when modifying the images to get our desired final look for each piece. Also, if they did not have images from a specific city, they traveled to that location to acquire them. The cost for custom artwork was very reasonable and we were always satisfied with the end result. Therefore, I would highly recommend JVA Art Group! "

Their creative department is superior and their service is wonderful. We appreciate that their competitive price points make custom art an option for any application. We have worked with Janet Van Arsdale at JVA for more than a decade on many Hilton Brands and we continue using them as they keep their art offering fresh and unique. I appreciate their personal service and hands on approach. They are a trusted and valued resource. "
