“Great Location and Great Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2009

We had a fantastic holiday weekend. The hotel was perfectly situated close to Metro and great shopping. The hotel offered a free shuttle to both,which was nice and convenient. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel was clean. As for the rooms, they offer the Heavenly Bed and Shower head which was a heavenly way to end and wake up each day. Overall a geat time.

I stayed here for a week while attending a class for work.

The location is poor, nothing is withing walking distance and the views are only of the freeway.

Their "convenient" shuttle service will only take specific places at certain times of the day and won't pick you up even if they say they will when you leave.

Rooms are run down and the staff is inattentive and unfriendly. I usually enjoy staying at Westin hotels, but there is a reason this one is very cheap, it is a very poor hotel. Westin should close this one down.

It's amazing how Starwood can take an esteemed brand like Westin and denegrate it to the level exhibited by the Westin Tysons Corner.

The hotel does not even have a full service restaurant open all day. Instead is a pathetic coffee shop that opens for lunch and briefly for dinner. It's menu offering resembles something you would find in a high school cafeteria rather than an upscale hotel. Additionally, the Starbucks branded cafe in the lobby is only open briefly in the mornings. This means that the only dining options for large art of the day is the limited menu lounge area located adjacent to the lobby.

The hotel simply cannot compete with other properties in the Tysons area, due to the poor location (compared to the Courtyard and Crowne Plaza -- which are right across from the Galleria) and lack of F&B and leisure facilities.

Because the owner has attempted to cut costs by simply upgrading interiors rather than conducting a full renovation, the lobby area and much of the property resembles the Doubletree hotel that existed before the Westin reflagging.

The hotel has been performing poorly and is not popular with business travelers who travel to the area. Therefore, the desperate management has been giving discounted rate to HIGH SCHOOL GROUPS. During my stay there, three floors of the hotel were entirely occupied by these groups, which the front desk attendant telling me that four kids shared each room. The noise levels in the public area of the hotel and general inconvenience to other guests (the place resembled a school yard) was enough for me to never stay at this property again. Additoinally, the property can frequently be found on hotwire (4-star property in Falls Church) with rates of approximately $70).

Starwood needs to seriously look at underperforming properties like this if it is to improve its financial standing. It's no surprise that its stock price is sinking and performance far lags behind competitors such as Marriott.

This hotel was a great find. We went to a concert in Virginia, and foubd this Westin. We were travelling with our puppy, and she was welcomed with open arms. The room was spaciaous, clean, and stylish. The hotel was close to the Metro- which brought us right into the D.C. area. It was great for sightseeing.

We stayed here the weekend of Jun 5-7 for a trip to the DC area. We were able to get a great rate of $75 / night -- for a Westin! The quality of the room was top notch as you'd expect at a Westin (clean and comfy). Though you can tell the place is beginning to show its age. Carpet is a bit worn, parts of the tub and the bathroom ceiling were "beginning" to peel away (but the heavenly shower rectified that). The only other downside was the noise from the capital beltway outside. The hotel overlooks it, so you hear constant traffic all day and night. Otherwise for what we paid, we were quite happy with our room.

This hotel has practically every amenity you could want. Service was great as expected, they came within minutes of requesting some extra towels, ample free parking, it's also quite close to the Tysons Corner shopping mall and a quick 20 min drive to DC.

Overall we would definitely stay here again.

I am used to dealing wit Holliday Inn kind of hotels. But this time the conference was held at the Westin, so I stayed here. The hotel is fine, but the food they prepared during lunch was mediocre. here the pluses and the minuses of the hotel:
+ stylish rooms and public spaces
+ above average gym
+ swimming pool
+ free internet in public places
+ large bathrooms
+ near Tysons corner shopping mall (not accessable by foot!)
+ business centre (incl. free (yes this was free!) printer and copier)

Minuses:
- expensive internet in room
- located in a pedestrian unfriendly erea
- no good jogging route available

Would probably not stay here again (too expensive for me)

We stayed over one night for the Cherry Blossom festival in D.C. The room was nicely decorated and clean. Everything was good except the bathtub liner was peeling and the toilet flush mechanism was not working properly. The Heavenly Bed and Bath amenities were a nice touch. We especially enjoyed the dual shower head. Front desk reception was just okay, not particularly welcoming or friendly, but not mean either, just... detached. Overall okay for a short stay.
