We drove up from Richmond, VA to celebrate my Birthday in Crystal City and we had booked this property for our stay from Friday, 08/29/2014 through 09/01/2014. We did this as the location of this property is close to the Ruth's Chris Steak House we always visit in Crystal City for special occasions. We stayed many times at this property when it was the Sheraton Crystal City and were aware that it would be closed for a time for renovations for its change to a Westin.
We were glad to see they were able to open for us to be able to book for this trip. We were extremely pleased to see the results of the remodeling. The Lobby entrance was refreshed as was the Lobby itself. The Business Center and Front Desk were moved (for the better) and the Bar and Restaurant redone (also for the better). The really best thing was the rooms! We booked a King room and the whole room was redesigned as was the Bath. As the title says "Like a breath of fresh air!"
I am including photos of what I have mentioned for all too see as they have not updated (as of 09/01/2014) their web page for the hotel.
Only a few of the former Sheraton staff returned. Moses was one of them and he exceeded our expectations at the Concierge Desk taking care of whatever we needed. From the staff at the Front Desk to the Restaurant, all were welcoming and ready to make sure our experience at the hotel was the best! Our stay was the best we've ever had at this newly renovated property!
You must give it a look and try if your plans include the Crystal City area of Arlington, VA. They are the BEST!
