“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Reston is a sort of Stepford Wives community, somebody's idea of a suburban paradise, but to my taste claustrophobic and artificial. This Sheraton is very much of that character. I have only one concrete complaint about it, and that is that I was made to pay for my daily New York Times. Perhaps I should expect that at a Sheraton-league hotel, but (as part of the particular package I purchased) they give away wine and substantial snacks during happy hour (substantial enough that some guests clearly treated it as dinner) and put on a substantial continental breakfast, so it seems cheap to make me cough up for a national newspaper.

The woman (whose name I forget) who staffed the breakfast in the club room (or whatever it's called) was perky to a fault, almost annoyingly so. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly. I did not use many other hotel amenities so cannot comment, but certainly I discovered that if you want to go out for a walk or job, you can forget it. This is a town for cars, not humans. Sidewalks or paths anywhere near the hotel are impossible to find or non-existent.

This was a business trip and this hotel clearly caters to business travelers, most especially those of the socioeconomic bracket that go about in polo shirts and seem perpetually harried (and seem prone, for whatever reason, to stealing their meals by stuffing their pockets with free stuff from the club room). I would not recommend this venue for the leisure traveler, but then I can't imagine why a leisure traveler would be in Reston, VA. For a certain class of business traveler, this hotel is going to give you pretty much what I imagine you'd expect.

I booked a room through Priceline for 2 days. The first day me and husband were both disappointed by the outdated rooms and lack of fridge / microwave and other common amenities in a 4 star hotel. The bathroom is worse than in any motel. The staff was friendly but does it compensate for the itchy room? No. We took NyQuil the second day to get some sleep. We had already paid for both the nights in advance and wasn't eligible for a return. So we were stuck! Do not stay in this hotel if you're expecting 4 star service. If you just want somewhere to sleep, stay in a cheap motel where you don't have high expectations. If you don't have expectations , it won't be disappointing when they aren't met.

The restaurant for breakfast was very comfortable and peaceful. I was surprised at the service, being that is was a self-serve buffet me and my group were still waited on. We didn't have to get up for anything, Manuel was very kind and wouldn't let me toast my bagel and when he returned I received cream cheese which I love and jelly and marmalade on the side .Very upscale service, they know what they represent at this hotel,great!!

I have stayed at the Sheraton Reston Hotel many times and every time I have received exceptional service. While I have also stayed at Category 5/6/7 hotels I can honestly say I have never felt as welcome by the staff as I do at this property. The front desk worker Kurt is extremely helpful every time and ensures my stay is as fulfilling as it possibly could be. He remembers me by name at check in every stay and makes me feel welcome as ever. In addition he makes checks to make sure as a platinum member everything I need is taken care of in the duration of my stay. The bar provides a welcoming atmosphere and the food is exceptional. I will continue to maintain my loyalty with this hotel for a very long time.

We have a new office in the Great Falls area; for the sake of business and my poor coworkers, we don't encourage anyone to stay at the Sheraton Reston Hotel again. This hotel is terrible beyond belief. Terrible service, funny smell and the rooms are so old they are literally crumbling.

That being said, the Hyatt Regency Reston down the street is a dream.

This hotel was recommended by business contact near their offices. It was a good choice, their famous heavenly bed was comfortable, but the abundant bed linens was hard to sleep among! The heavy comforter was nice when the air-conditioning got too cold, but then it got to be too warm shortly thereafter. Comfy pillows too.
Large room with desk and a small table that could be used as a laptop stand if sitting in the chair near the bed. Bathroom slightly small and could have used an upgrade wall tiles and flooring, but it was okay for the short visit.
The onsite pool looked inviting and there was actually a working lifeguard on duty while the pool was open. Looked like the upgrades to the interior decorating/finishing work are tasteful and impressive.

The female desk clerk that worked on the Sunday we checked in was very helpful and offered good recommendation for places to eat near the hotel. She acknowledged my SPG status and provided the internet access code without my having to request it.

Good location, good value.

Room Tip: 4th floor rooms in the wing not over the lobby were real quiet. The wooded setting helps to cut down...

As in the last 4 years that we stay for more than 6 weeks in the "Sheraton" in Ruston, Virginia, we found that the warm of a family welcoming us and every year.

Our 4 boys love this place and will refuse to go any were else, we all love and enjoy every day the kindness and warmth of every body that works in this Hotel.

We only notice a little bit of a change during the time that their outstanding Chef Mrs. Carmen was on vacations, the food was different, gladly she is back now and we can all enjoy the great food she prepares. Besides all the staff at the restaurant are very friendly, excellent service and always ready to serve at their best.

As you may know great food and friendly environment is all we need as a family to enjoy our time away from home, and we have all of this and more at the Sheraton in Reston.

We do highly recommend it for whatever reason you need a place to stay .

Room Tip: Rooms at the wing side are very convenient for families with children.
