My husband, daughter and I stayed at this Westin for a week. We had a room with two double beds and also had a crib for the baby. It was definitely a tight fit.
The hotel was just remodeled last year and changed hands from Doubletree to Westin. I think they did a good job on the remodel except for a few things they missed. For example, they did not change the elevators!! They are downright dingy with old carpeting and poor lighting. Also, the hotel room doors are all original with scuffs, dents and scrapes.
Someone set off the fire alarm at midnight the first night we were there. The entire hotel was evacuated while the fire department inspected. We all stood outside in our pj's for a half an hour in the middle of the night. I found out later that this happens 3-4 times per MONTH!!! Groan.
We had room service for breakfast every morning, and they were quite speady. No complaints there. They even brought up a highchair from the restuarant downstairs for our daughter. Food was OK- nothing special.
The pool area is very nice and clean- locker rooms are clean also.
All in all, I would recommend staying at the Westin Arlington Gateway over the Tysons Corner Westin. The Westin Arlington is much more attractive, is walking distance to the metro, and has lots of dining options a short stroll away. It is $50 more a night, but well worth it. We stayed there last summer and I wish I booked that hotel again for this trip. Next time.
