“Beautiful hotel - shame its not in Reston itself”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I usually stay at the Hyatt in Reston but as it was full I stayed here. The westin hotel is gorgeous. The beds are huge even in the basic room and they are the comfiest beds ever. Service was great other than a very abrupt lady in the restaurant at breakfast who didn't seem to want to be there. The reception staff were very helpful explaining the shuttle bus into Reston (it's free) and to and from Dulles (also free and very regular). Truly the only downside is the distance to Reston town centre but if you have a car or you aren't needing to be in town then there's no problem here at all.

We stayed at the Westin Reston Heights property over the recent weekend. A family member recently passed away and we visited the area to attend the memorial service. Although the occasion was a sad one, the service provided by Weston was outstanding and soothed our grief. Special recognition goes to Anne, Mike, and Mark at the front desk who helped us with early check-in, late departure, and sorting out our room charges. They were friendly, capable, professional, and courteous throughout the process. All three of our rooms were outstanding. They were located on the eighth floor facing the parking lot on the side away from the highway and were quiet, clean, and comfortable. Vinfera, the Westin Wine Bar & Bistro offered wonderful food and drinks although the service was somewhat slow. Despite that I highly recommend staying at this Westin, especially with the weekend rates available. It's a phenomenal value.

Room Tip: We enjoyed a corner suite in room 800 and it was very spacious, quiet, and bright.

I am currently staying with my husband at this beautiful hotel and we are enjoying our trip immensely. As a former flight attendant of many years, I have travelled the globe and stayed in many top hotels, and this one certainly stands out as one of the absolute best Westins I have ever visited ( the other two being the gorgeous Westin Michigan Avenue in Chicago as well as the Westin Market Street in San Francisco.) The decor here is ultra chic and tasteful, the famous heavenly beds are comfy as can be, the rooms large and airy and everything one would expect from such a fine high end hotel chain. What stands out most is the staff- their outstanding hospitality and warmth; going out of their way to really make one feel genuinely welcome here. I'd like to especially thank Justin for his fantastic service and literally rescuing us late at night when we landed from a long distance flight and had booked by mistake a hotel nearby that wasn't up to cleanliness standards at all and called around at 1 am. He even sent the hotel's shuttle bus to fetch us, gave outstanding service and we experienced true hospitality in the very best sense, highly to be commended! We'd also like to mention the wonderful service of Mark, Michael and Sal who contributed greatly to our lovely stay here and are also not just real professionals in the hotel industry, but come with as much heart, warmth and genuine hospitality as did Justin, our first point of contact. Having worked for the world's best airline so long, consistency of high standard was always something we aspired to give our passengers every single flight. This is an important point that fosters loyalty and a "feeling at home" with a specific hotel/airline/restaurant etc. Due to the economy, many places these days don't provide consistently high top notch service anymore, yet Justin, Mark, Michael and Sal were wisely picked by Westin as each truly gives their absolute best and doesn't compromise on service, it simply shows. This paired with huge hearts and Southern hospitality makes our stay a true pleasure- we'll be sure to recommend your hotel, the Westin chain and will certainly continue to book Westin when traveling. Many sincere thanks from two very happy customers!

Pros: Very nice hotel, huge rooms, clean , sunny, fresh. The restaurant (Vinoferro) is very good too. Nicely located close to dulles. They have a gym which I did not use.

Only cons: The wifi service was problematic, had to call tech support almost every night to fix it.

I have stayed in this hotel several times now for extended periods on business. The hotel is very clean, the staff friendly, and the facilities good. Rooms are a good size. The beds comfortable. Bathroom is very clean. Booked through Hotwire a few times so has always been excellent value. Location is very good for Reston town center or Tysons area, plenty of choice of food near by. Restaurant is good, room service is average for a 4* hotel. Not great, but certainly edible.

Although the wedding was not at the hotel, most family members stayed here and were very pleased. The staff eagerly accommodated special needs of the 80+ yr old grandparents; Becky Tobin and Michael McCoy were particularly responsive and helpful. Rooms were clean and nicely appointed. Beds excellent, Starbucks coffee and fridge in room. Microwave would have been nice. Free shuttle to and from the airport, and covered parking a nice surprise as well.
This was our second stay at this property: would definitely stay here again.

I really had too less time in the hotel, but it was good experience. I flew in late and got airport pickup from Dulles. They gave me a pleasant surprise by upgrading me to a suite and giving free internet access. They have shuttle services to the downtown area which is very convenient.
