After visiting this hotel twice, I can safely say it’s my favorite property for business travel. If you are working anywhere in Reston, the Hyatt seems to be convenient to mostly everything, including a short 15-20 minute trip from Dulles (IAD). The shuttle service is reliable and prompt, although it only departs once per hour and ceases at 10:00pm. The doormen, valets and front desk personnel are all extremely courteous and helpful and the housekeeping service seems to be above average.
Rooms at the Hyatt Reston are excellent. Although this is not a 5-star hotel, the accommodations are more than adequate, especially for a solo business traveler. I’ve stayed in both the larger corner room and the standard King room – no problems either time. The alarm clocks are iPod compatible but sadly do not fit the iPhone.
Perhaps the best part about this hotel is its location. A Panera Bread is immediately off the spacious lobby and offers free WiFi for those who don’t want to pay for the hotel’s internet access (and who does, really?). Walk outside the back door of the hotel and you are in the Reston Town Center, an outdoor mall with plenty of shopping and restaurants. I can’t vouch for the hotel’s restaurant or room service, but my favorite dining in the area is Big Bowl (better suited for a separate review).
For those who are interested in amenities, the Hyatt’s gym is, by far, the best I’ve ever seen in the context of hotel gyms. It’s not a closet with a treadmill and a couple of beauty bells. This facility offers several treadmills complete with TV and fancy course charting, a bar/rack with enough pins to serve as a squat rack or bench press, kettle bells, dumbbells up to 70 lbs. each and heavy ropes for intense training. It also has a few Free Motion machines and Swiss balls. Easily the nicest hotel gym I’ve ever seen. The pool and hot tub are quite nice as well. You absolutely cannot go wrong with the fitness amenities at the Hyatt Reston.
Overall, the Hyatt is a fantastic choice for business travel. Aside from the high rates (over $250/night average) and the lack of free WiFi/Ethernet in the rooms, there is really nothing negative about this hotel.
