“Lovely Resort Complex Yet Convenient for IAD Flights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a beautiful resort overlooking the Potomac River with all of the resort amenities including golf courses (45 holes with putting green and practice range) along the river and large clubhouse, tennis courts, 3 outdoor pools and an indoor lap pool and jacuzzi, health club, and an elegant full-service spa. There is also a children's playground and volleyball court, so there is plenty to do for those seeking a wonderful get-away. The resort offers a lot of packages including great deals for those in the military and a "Girlfriends' Spa Getaway" package along with sweetheart, golf, and food and wine packages. Our room was beautiful and spacious. I just wish that there had been a comforter on the bed or an extra blanket in the room since we were there during the winter. The staff was wonderful and did everything they could to make our stay a great one. And the buffet breakfast was fabulous...but costs about $20pp! Be sure to try the blintzes with warm blueberry sauce! We loved walking on the trails along the Potomac River in Riverfront Park. The hotel is located 15 minutes from IAD airport, and shuttles must be arranged in advance at the time of reservation. In addition to couples and family get-aways, this would be a fabulous place for a wedding or for meetings and conferences. I would love to go back if we were in the area!

Dear teacherkh,

Thank you for sharing your experience and feedback with us and other TripAdvisor readers. We are delighted you enjoyed your visit.

We proudly opened our “brand new” Riverside Hearth Restaurant on March 11 and hope you were able to enjoy the setting. We’ve received a number of positive comments already. And you’re correct, we are a very popular family destination and host scores of corporate meetings and memorable weddings annually. I’m proud that we are rated at the top of Wedding sites in the entire D.C area thanks to the variety of venues and services we provide. It was good to learn that you took time to walk the path along the Potomac River. In addition to beautiful scenery, the fishing in the area is terrific.

As we do with all guest comments, we will be sharing your kind words with our staff. On your next visit, please allow our team to provide an additional comforter. It does get chilly at this time of year, but we’d be happy to accommodate your needs. By the way, I was just in the lobby and met two guests who also call Atlanta home. We’re getting very popular with residents from that great city!

Arrived in the ealrly pm and the satff were efficeint and gracious. The room was a standard room but adequate. We heard quite a lot of noise from the room next to us (a group of college boys- so what would you expect!). The indoor pool was quite small though was partly cordoned off for laps. The walk to the Potomac was fun and the view was good. Car parking was free as was internet. The rsetaurant was fine and the food (crab cakes) was excellent.
Leesburg was very nice indeed with good restaurants and a tour of the Governor's mansion (Morven Park) was well worth a visit.

Dear Duddoo,
Your detailed feedback is sincerely appreciated as it gives us an opportunity to learn more about our guests, their experiences and any areas that may need our attention. While we are glad you enjoyed some aspects of your time with us like your walk to the Potomac, we are sorry if you were disrupted by other guests, it would have been our pleasure to resolve any potential issue by facilitating a room change. Leesburg is home to many historic sites and quite a few delicious restaurants. We hope that next time you're in the area, you'll stop by for another stay.

Excellent resort quite close to IAD airtport, large and comfortable rooms, attentive staff, with multiple swimming-pools and Spa and a golf course. Only one of the 5 restaurants was open but I was there in winter time. Shuttle to and from the airport is available on request (15-20 minutes to arrive). Nice view on the Potomac valley. Definitely better than many other hotels in the area in case of forced stop-over.

My stay at Landsdowne was nice. I would not recommend the ice cream brownie at the bar - it looks delicious but was hard and was not good at all. The service and food at the Potomac Breakfast bar was AWESOME. My room from my room was nice although I know the hotel was not at full capacity but they initially put me in a room that was right off the elevator area and by the ice machine with a view of the parking lot. They were very accomodating in quickly switching me to a different room that had a very nice view of the golf course. I really enjoyed the services provided at Spa Minerals and although I did not use the gym area the staff in the gym were very nice in giving me a tour and telling me about the services.

Hello IMartin313...

...And thank you for sending word related to your February visit. In spite of the snow that’s falling as I write this note, I am soon headed to our pastry kitchen to ask that we take greater care in preparing the Ice Cream Brownie bar. This is typically a very popular choice so your comment was most appreciated. Of course, we are glad to learn that we were able to accommodate you in a room with a more desirable view and that you enjoyed your Spa Minerale experience. On your next visit to Lansdowne, which we hope will be soon, I hope you’ll have time to enjoy the fitness center…maybe I’ll see you there!

I thought the resort was beautiful. Arrived Saturday night to a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Then, we went to On the Potomac for dinner and showed up approx 30 minutes before closing (we did not know.) We had a $150 credit to any of the restaurants so we had to eat at one of them. The bar server, Caesar, was amazing. He catered to us - made us strong & tasty drinks. Also gave us a great overview of the resort. Our food was amazing. Filet w/ scallops and Prime Rib w/ lobster tail (they only gave me 2 scallops for $11 but they were so damn good. Lobster tail was overdone. BUT the steaks were absolutely perfect. Best prepared piece of meat I have ever had. I was even cutting the steak w/ a butter knife to prove to my girlfriend just how tender the meat was). After dinner, went to the Stonewall place. Drinks were great, atmosphere was great, server was personable. Great time. The next day, breakfast buffet was incredible, fruit was fresh. Also got late check out for 2pm. Great resort, great OVERALL price (we found a couples getaway package), great time.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor - great view!

We enjoyed a one night romance package that included champagne/truffle on arrival, and a $200 spa or golf credit, and $100 restaurant credit as well as buffet breakfast and drinks in the tavern. The spa was extremely relaxing and had above average quality services. I enjoyed a facial and Swedish massage. the overall calming environment was terrific. Dinner in the On The Potomac Restaurant was just average. Nice appetizers but just okay entrees (steak cooked medium vs. rare, and house made pasta was overcooked), with somewhat slow service. Overall the restaurant was somewhat tired looking. The breakfast on the other hand was just wonderful -- very good variety, excellent attentive service to get juice, coffee, etc. We truly enjoyed it and did not even need lunch that day. And Stonewalls Tavern was a nice place to hang out after dinner for a drink (great martinis) and games. So, overall a fun getaway, especially after winery tastings during the day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side of the hotel facing the Potomac River. The hotel offers a very generous...

Dear MPWAnnapolisW

Thank you for visiting Lansdowne and for sharing your comments relative to your stay. It appears your Romance visit was enjoyable and we are delighted you were able to take advantage of Spa Minerale’, the restaurants and some of the many nearby wineries. Many people are taking advantage of our new Shared Wines and Treasured Times package that includes transportation to/from selected wineries and so much more. It’s a great package to share with another couple or two.

As you may have seen during your visit, we are close to completing a “top to bottom” renovation of our Riverside Hearth restaurant. We can’t wait until March 11 when the restaurant reopens for our guests. Please come back to see us and experience this “new” restaurant. Thanks again for your visit and comments!

Nice 1980's style resort. A bit dated but nice people and facilities. Well located to Dulles and suitable for conferences, ETC. what perplexes me in the terrible shampoo and soap dispensers in the shower. What a cheapo attempt to look "green!"

Dear Cwinstin,

Hello and thank you for your comments related to your recent business stay.

Your comments related to our guest room shower amenities are appreciated. While this presentation is certainly different than we have all become accustomed to over the years, the dispensers (and the high quality body wash/shampoo/conditioner) are being adopted at many 4- Diamond settings and have been overwhelmingly well received by our guests. With that said, we are always prepared to deliver more traditionally packaged bath products to each and every guest upon request. We hope you will visit us again soon and allow us to be of service.

Travel safely!
