Just returned from a weekend visit to Reston, Virginia and stayed at the Hyatt in Reston. All in all it was and excellent experience. First of all the price, during the weekend this hotel is down right cheap, with all rooms under $200, including suites (at least for the weekend I checked in April 5-6).
The condition of the hotel is excellent, the rooms, hallways, lobby etc. are immaculate. It is a relatively new hotel so this isn’t surprising, although someone had mentioned they just redid the whole place…nevertheless, everything was in great shape. The rooms are nicely designed, with a wall that divides the room, shielding the bed from the sound and light of the entryway..maybe this is typical in Hyatts but I found it to be a great design. The rooms themselves had coffee machines and in room safes, but no mini bar….I really miss those $4 chocolates. The bed is a lot like the heavenly beds at the Westin, very plush with nice sheets and down comforters. The heat/ac system was very quiet, which is always a question in any hotel.
The health club at the hotel is a good size with a lot of equipment and the indoor pool and hot tube are very nice…although I was to busy to take a swim. The hotel provides free indoor parking at an attached garage which is nice.
As for the food, I ordered room service one night and the service and sandwich were excellent. However, on Sunday morning we ate breakfast at the restaurant and I couldn’t believe what a lousy buffet they had. $21 bucks and all you get is a choice of eggs, sausage and some pastry and fruit….terrible selection. Instead, we ordered off of the menu for far less money and had an excellent breakfast.
As for the location, the hotel is in the middle of Reston “Town Center” a newly/under construction commercial area with a good amount of shops (pottery barn, etc.) and some nice restaurants (Mortons…). Reston itself is about 5 miles from Dulles airport, so if you need to visit this area of Virginia, or even if you are going into D.C., this is a nice place to stay, overall no complaints, would stay there again.
