“It lacks the location of the Hyatt, but is a much nicer hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

I come to Reston two or three times a year & this is the hotel where I choose to stay.

Downside first - there is nothing much in the immediate vicinity & it cannot compete with the Hyatt on location at Reston Town Centre.

All the rest is good, very nice rooms (I was upgraded as a Starwood Platinum) to a junior suite which was very well appointed, laid out & blissfully quiet (despite facing the Dulles road).

The bar is very nice (so much better than the Hyatt) and the food was excellent. Although I didn't use it on this trip the pool & gym are pretty good too.

So, if being right in RTC is of prime importance stay at the Hyatt, if not stay here & use the shuttle to get to RTC.

Booked online for an excellent price. Are in the area 5 times a year. Usually go with Embassy Suites but they get too crazy with kids. Room, fine and wonderfully quiet. Staff were very pleasant. Parking easy.

We waited over 1 month to share this review in hopes that we would hear from management before it came to this. We were put up at the Reston by United Airlines on July 19,2013, room #523 . The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are great, the beds are comfortable, but be careful what you eat. We ordered room service as it was already after 10:30 and we were exhausted after our overseas flight had been delayed numerous hours. Our teen daughter ordered vanilla ice cream with berry strudel. Imagine her surprise when she bit into something crunchy. When she pulled it out of her mouth it was a dead June bug. We immediately called the manager who called the kitchen manager. They made a couple of apologies & offered to pay for our meal, which United Airlines had already paid for. They couldn't pay for breakfast (which was already covered by United). The next morning at 6 a.m. while waiting for the shuttle there were live and dead June bugs in the seating area that were also brought to the attention of the manager. Since returning home we have called several times asking for a copy of their report regarding this matter. We are being put off and not one single time has anyone from the hotel contacted us regarding this matter. Perhaps hoping to sweep it under the rug just like the June bugs.

This was a trip meant for a couple days but it turned into more than that due to a family member having some issue's. I will say that this hotel is really great and in a great location from D.C. The hotel itself looks great and the rooms and really well appointed and up to par with other hotels. The only issue I had really was the housekeeping staff, they seem to be doing half of there job. The time I stayed there I noticed that we would be missing either soap or a towel from what we were given on the first day. I wasn't a huge deal as the hotel made up for the small problem from housekeeping, Overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend others to go as well.

Everything was excellent; clean, elegant, the personnel very friendly and helpful. In addition, the hotel has ample underground free parking. We cannot comment on the quality of the food, since we did not eat at the hotel. We also liked the location of the hotel because it was very close to a number of places we visited in the area. We did not stay at this hotel with the intention to visit downtown Washington, DC. which is, indeed, not very close. A number of good restaurants are not far at the Reston Town Center, just 5 minutes of driving from the hotel. All in all, we were very pleased with the hotel and would not hesitate to stay there again.

This was our first stay at this hotel, and we were very favorably impressed. The front desk staff was friendly, welcoming and efficient, which is always a good start. The lobby and public spaces are tastefully decorated with modern, upscale furnishings and accessories, and the guest room was spacious and well-appointed. Although we didn't try it, there is a bistro and wine bar located in the hotel that looked very nice. This hotel is conveniently located to many activities in Reston, and there is shuttle service to Dulles Airport.

Emergency landing causes us to stay a night here. I have SPG membership & thought that would provide us a nice room for a night.
The shuttle service also services the nearby Sheraton so both times we used it was either full or left waiting passengers for next shuttle.
The desk clerk, Mark, was wonderful and provided us with missing toiletries (ours was in a checked bag that went missing) and also took our room service order just prior to closing at 11pm.
While the bed was wonderful, a bathroom light had burned out, the digital clock not lit & the desk lamp unplugged. No night gown either (in miasing bag) but found a robe behind door on hanger...yippee! Something clean to put on after shower. As I removed from hanger, makeup around neckline and odor or another's perfume. Ick!
Delta needs to provide better accommodations for their business sky priority passengers.
