if you are spending the weekend save money on parking by parking on the side of the road (Glebe drive) the parking is free on weekend and cheaper on weekdays.

The perfect place to say

I loved the location. Plenty of restaurants although the restaurant in the hotel was fabulous. The place was in a safe neighborhood, close to the Metro.

Excellent stay

This hotel is really nice and reasonably priced. When you walk in there is a fabulous lobby complete with complimentary apples and fruit water. I arrived about 9:30 and although check-in is at 3:00 pm they allowed me to check-in anyway. The rooms were spotless and the bathroom was top-notch and the soap smelled amazing. I would surely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone staying in Arlington.

Awesome stay

This was my first trip to the DC area, I was there to do all the "touristy" stuff and also visit friends in Maryland and Virginia. The hotel is in a great location, close to metro, great restaurants, bars, mall, bus, etc. I loved the hospitality of the hotel staff. I'm absolutely in love with the heavenly bed and shower. Awesome room and great bath with the most amazing toiletries and mirror... Will definitely stay there again, and again.

Great place for my DC visit

Everything was quite enjoyable. At times, I did notice there werent enough people working the check-in desk so I had to wait a bit. Other then that, it was a great stay. Tons of places to eat close by. Starbucks inside the hotel was great. Metro station a mere 5 minute walk from the hotel. The ride from the Metro station to the DC area (Smithsonian stop) was about a 15 minute ride. Overall, It was a great place and would stay again if visiting the DC or surrounding area.

Take the Metro- Dont drive into DC. The metro will leave you smack in the middle of all the main attractions: Lincoln Memorial, Capital building, Washington Monument.

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.

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.
