Nice Business Hotel Stay

Convenience to the Metro railroad was key. Hotel was very modern, with all the basic amenities. Bed service could have been better; the nature of white bed spreads and pillows call for changes more often! Also soap, shampoo, lotion etc. was minimal. I stayed two nights, they never replaced used items after the first night. They also promoted Spa Services - Except Services were not on site. They partnered with an external spa service for in-room visits. Shuttle service to the major attractions - Federal Triangle/Smithsonian would have been nice.

Have breakfast at the local Cosi, I-Hop, 7/11 or Subways. The hotel breakfast is over priced.

nice hotel but pricey

If I had been paying myself I would not have stayed here, but it's very nice and the mattress is to die for.

Funeral of family member in Arlington Cemetery

Some staff members answered questions in a rude and condensending manner, especially the day male concierge, and a day male front desk clerk( blonde hair). Perhaps this is due to having barriers with the English language. However, would like to commend the hotel night Security Manager that helped get the room safe fixed in a timely manner. He was kind, considerate, and professional along with understanding English.

Perfectly located.

The Westin Arlington is located in such a wonderful location, with tons of food and shopping options away from the craziness of downtown DC. It's also extremely conveniently located 2 blocks away from the Ballston Metro Stop-so if you do need to get to DC, it's a hop, skip and a jump away.

Westin Arlington Gateway

Great location only two blocks from Ballston Metro stop where its only a 15 +/- min ride into DC. Clean and functional room for a family of four. Walking distance from shops, the mall and many restaurants in Ballston area. Would stay there again.

My family arrived Friday night and enjoyed walking around and dinner in Ballston, then on Saturday we took the Metro into DC and saw many of the attractions and museums went back to the hotel to rest and returned to Georgetown for nice dinner on the waterfront. We even stopped at Georgetown Cupcakes for some treats. Sunday we headed to Six Flags America in Maryland which was less than 1/2 hr away before returning home Sunday evening.
