My wife and I were visiting DC for the weekend. I had checked hotels in DC and found them too high for my budget. I booked this hotel though Expedia and got a very good rate. The room was excellent. I visited on the weekend and was able to park in front of the hotel. I was lucky. Otherwise the... More

This is a convenient location if you have business in Arlington, and the hotel is clean and reasonably efficient. The Westin bed and bath experience is alive and well here. Local laws mean to pool is not open for very long everyday as a lifeguard must be on duty. Reception was not very robust - it seemed the lady just... More

I spent a night at the Westin while visiting NSF. The location is very convenient, just a couple of blocks from Ballston metro. Excellent service, wonderful bed, unusually good shower. Convenient Starbucks in the lobby, and a decent sized fridge in the room. I would be happy to stay again.

I stayed for 3 weeks at this hotel in April 2016. The first time that I've ever stayed in a hotel that long :) But I enjoyed my stay. The Westin Arlington Gateway is close to the Ballston metro station (about 5 minutes walk). There's also the Ballston common shopping mall, a small mall but you can get the essentials... More

I liked the location. It is very close to metro station. There are several restaurants within walking distance. Only issue is that the hotel is pet friendly but there is no glass near by. There is a small corner near street. If you opt out cleaning services, you are supposed to get $5 food credit or mileage. But I wasn't... More

This well- located hotel is right in the middle of an exploding area of Arlington. It sits almost on the corner of Glebe and Wilson Boulevard, three blocks from Route 66 - a major artery in and out of DC and two blocks from a metro station. Surrounding the hotel are numerous very good restaurants, Macy's, etc. and yet, in... More

We ended up here by chance, and a few hours early. The hotel allowed us early check in at no extra cost. The entire staff had smiles on their faces, and we're ready to lend a helping hand. My family and I will definitely be looking at other Westin properties in the futrue.
