“Not bad for a hotel Bar!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

Despite its location inside the otherwise dismal Aloft property near dulles, the number of beers available, friendly bartender, and lively atmosphere of the wxyz lounge were a great diversion in the evening.

The bartender provided a wealth of knowledge about local beer selections, comparison between various beers and spirits, and generally provided attentive service - including sharing what the lounge could and could not provide.

The food selection was probably the one challenge with this location. As the larger hotel does not have a full kitchen, the bar fare is similarly restricted to what can be obtained from a refrigerator directly or quickly heated in a microwave. Indeed, the bartender often had to leave his position as the sole staff member in order to fulfill such orders in the back.

“Great Bartender”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Funky little bar that actually lights up. She was helpful and easy to talk to. Even got me some ice in a bag to take back up to my room.

“Nice mix of locals and hotel guests”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2011

At first glance, when it's empty, it looks like your typical hotel bar. But quickly after it opens at 530PM, it fills up with a nice mix of locals and hotel guests. There is a good selection of local craft beers on tap, and one of the evenings I was there there was a beer tasting session going on from a local brewer (Lost Rhino). Nice touch. The bar tender was very upbeat, again great for the traveler. I was there from a Thursday to Sunday, and there were always people enjoying a drink and conversation. If you stay at the Aloft hotel or any of the near by properties, making the XWYZ a watering stop is not a bad idea.
