Very sophisticated and clean

The Westin Arlington Gateway is an excellent hotel! For the price we paid and the stay we had, it was an incredible deal. The lobby was very sophisticated, yet welcoming. My fiance and I thought it was a really fun idea how the hotel provided water infused with real pieces of all different kinds of fruit. There was also a Starbucks just a few steps away from the lobby where we checked in. Our room was very clean and spacious. The TV was a huge flat screen with a great channel selection. My only complaint would probably be that the comforter was much too heavy and hot. Other than that, everything was great!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a wine bar located just behind the hotel that was so great! It had a really fun atmosphere, a diverse wine selection, and delicious food. It was called Cafe Cru I think. It was such a great find, especially considering how close it was to the hotel on a cold and windy night.

Very comfortable

The Westin Gateway provided an early check in with no difficulty. The beds are very comfortable, with 4 pillows per bed. Dual showerheads provide your choice of spray, pulsating, in-between, or a combination. Great lighting in the bath as well. The room was clean, but not always provided with a liner for the ice bucket, clean glasses, etc. The hotel is only a few blocks from the Ballston Metro station, providing excellent access to D.C. Additionally, the Ballston Commons Mall is behind the metro stop and has a great variety of shops, restaurants, and entertainment. The neighborhood appeared safe after dark.

Very modern.

The hotel felt very upscale at such an affordable price. Impeccably clean. Accessibility to the Metro was most important.

Good Location

Only a couple blocks from several very excellent places to dine, and only 2 blocks from Balston metro station. Everything we needed was within walking distance.

No shuttle service.

This hotel is a new property and is nicely appointed. The room was comfortable. It is also a non-smoking facility which I appreciated. There was no shuttle service, which I was disappointed by. The taxi into the hotel from Reagan airport was approximately $25 for one person. There were taxis available at all times at the front door. The metro is a three to four block walk. For the price of the hotel, a shuttle to metro, airport, etc. would have been nice. The current taxi scheme in the D.C. area is that the Arlington taxis are metered, but the D.C. taxis are not. If you are not careful and get in the wrong one, they can charge you whatever they want, a shuttle might help eliminated some of this confusion.

There is a lovely Italian restaurant in the lobby as well as a Starbucks. There are no soft drink machines and the mini bar is quite expensive.

Great Value for the Money

The Westin Arlington Gateway is a high class hotel at a reasonable price. Sleep in comfort, work out in a state of the art gym, and just relax and enjoy feeling like you're at home.

A nice mall is only a few blocks away in case you forgot anything at home, or if you want to go get a new outfit before the big event.

great staff

It's a Westin and they do their best to meet needs. The rooms are somewhat on the small side, but we were visiting museums in the daytime and a party at Bardia's in Adams Morgan the evening we were there.
