Starbucks coffee pot in the room and small fridge were a nice plus. good,not fabulous breakfast buffet of $16. Work out rooom was bright, big windows, three treadmills, 3 ellipticals, stationary bike, free weights, one weight machine, mats, balls,wipes towels.. Overall... More

We stayed here for one night while traveling between west Virginia and Washington DC. Parking is free and we had a good spot walking to hotel lobby. Hotel employees greeted us nicely and we cheeked in quickly. They offered free FiWi in the lobby, but also it was a special week and we got free WiFi in our rooms (complimentary).... More

My wife and I stayed here on a trip to an event in DC. For $90 on Kayak, you can't get better, but i would feel ripped off at the rack rate of twice that and more. We called to report an overhead light out and to ask for a second bathrobe. They came with the bathrobe, but not the... More

We got a "deal" at the Arlington Gateway through Priceline Express, and after the hotel was named (the name wasn't revealed until after we had committed to it on Priceline) we wondered if it was really a deal or if it was one of those hotels that can only fill its rooms by discounting them. This turned out to be... More

While accidents can happen, the Westin's follow up after dropping my computer at the front desk is unacceptable. On their own video tape, it was confirmed that my computer checked at the front desk was dropped and cracked the screen. The staff member didn't report this and I only found out upon reacing the airport and noticed the damage. Despite... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations, the rooms were spacious and well appointed. The hotel is located very close to the ballston metro station and there are several restaraunts and bars in walking distance. The staff are very nice but beware, parking in the hotel garage is expensive and there is very little to no street parking available.

Conveniently located a very pleasant park-like 2 blocks walking distance from the Ballston metro, and a $25 cab ride from Reagan airport, this hotel was a decent choice for a DC visit. The hotel restaurant, Pinzimini, is good, has a so-so $17 buffet breakfast, and a Starbucks is on site. The 3rd floor pool and gym (did not use the... More

Professional and very friendly staff, hotel very clean and accessible. The smell in the hotel lobby was lovely! Near to metro station, some good restaurants nearby. Free wifi very good - much appreciated. We travelled easily in and out of Washington. This was a great base. We faced onto the road, which was quite noisy - but it was ok.
