Rated 5 out of 5 by JonM Great staff, great hotel
I have stayed at this hotel nearly every week for the past year. The front desk staff and bartender are fantastic - catering to all of our needs in a friendly and quick manner. Our rooms are always waiting in advance, upgrades are granted when available, and they always greet us by name. The rooms are also kept in great shape.
My only negative comment on the hotel is that the Wi-Fi is almost non-functional. As a business traveler, it is important to have a good Wi-Fi connection, and the hotel should take steps to improve the bandwidth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RVAvisitor D.C. Visit
I live in the Richmond, VA area and my family needed a room for one night while we visited several D.C. attractions. We could have stayed closer to the city, but the Westin reputation (and free parking!) lured us. Our room was on the 5th floor. It was very clean, and there was a decent amount of space for my husband, 3 year old son, and myself. The only disappointments were the lack of a ceiling fan (room was not too hot or cold, but it was stuffy) and the mini fridge did not get our drinks cold after being in there all night. We could have gone to get ice, but we didn't bother looking. Overall, those were very minor issues. We had a great stay and the service at the front desk on arrival and departure was excellent. We would definitely stay there again.

Overall, this was a nice hotel for attending a conference. The restaurant (Vinifera) was delicious and definitely a step above hotel food, thank goodness, for the room service options were dismal. If you don't get room service for breakfast there is no where to get breakfast at the hotel. There is a Starbucks counter off the lobby but I was informed that it has been vacant for more than a year. The room was very clean and comfortable but noisier than I would have liked even though I wasn't near the elevators.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VJNewyork Additional Lighting Needed in Room, Excellent Restaurant
The room I was staying in was extremely dimly lit. The bulbs have been changed to CFL which is great for energy consumption but did not provide adequate light especially if you are trying to get some late night presentations done. Otherwise, room quality was above average. The real gem of this hotel is its restaurant. Skip the room service and go down and experience culinary delight - from the hummus dips and pita to the fresh entrees paired with great wine selection, absolutely superb!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LFW2013 Very happy at the Westin Reston
I'm a part of a large team staying at the Westin Reston each week and have been consistently happy with the quality of the rooms, excellent service, amazing staff, and the great location to the town center. The staff knows our team by name and helps to make the Westin Reston a home away from home during a long-hour work week. Would highly recommend this hotel, especially for those doing business in the Northern Virginia area, they know how to cater to business travelers extremely well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Storm2012 Great Service - Wonderful for Families or Business
The Westin at Reston Heights was a wonderful escape following the storms of 2012. We lost power and were lucky to be able to stay at this hotel. For two families including teenage kids and dogs, the hotel ended up being our temporary home. The staff were friendly and courtesos; always looking for ways to make our stay more enjoyable. The restaurant and wine bar were great. There was a wide selection to meet everyones tastes and it was well prepared. Highly recommend the lamb chops.

Yet another great experience at a fantastic hotel. The staff, especially Ann at the front desk, is always great. I called in due to a flight change and Ann was able to add a night to my stay with no problems. They always have a great can do attitude. Hyung at the bar is also great and has an amazing memory and mind for football, so he's always fun to talk to.
The only negative I can comment on is inconsistent hot water in the shower. It has a tendency to fluctuate drastically.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MissedFlightMary Last minute stay due to flight cancellation
Stayed at this hotel because we missed our flight connection (United, from New Orleans to Hartford) due to airline delays. Got discounted rate, which was quite reasonable for the type of facility. Pros: The bed was extraordinarily comfortable. Cons: Bar closed at 11 pm, before we arrived (and really needed a drink - see above re: airline mess-ups). It was suggested that we walk across the huge parking lot, in the cold and dark, to the bar in the neighboring hotel! (Not!)

Last weekend (Nov 28 to Dec 1) was our second time at this Westin. Both stays were overall wonderful - the quick & efficient check-in, the comfort & cleanliness of our room, excellent breakfasts at Vinafera, and the quick & efficient check-out.

Here's a list of things that weren't quite right:
* room was not cleaned one day - yet the desk tried to tell me it was so I ended up with a mess of towels, no coffee, etc the 2nd day
* Bulbs burned out in room; clock radio not working; lampshade had huge cracks in it
* No hot water in bathroom faucet
* Check-in person had an attitude; others at front desk ended up being very helpful
* I stay at this hotel ~ 2X / month and this was the least satisfying stay yet

Rated 4 out of 5 by Visitor011 Good experience overall
Staff was very friendly and helpful with minor billing issues encountered during my stay this past weekend. Breakfast in the restaurant was fantastic as well.
I was disappointed in the fact that I could not open the window shade that covered the entire window in my room because it was broken (top was out of the track) and that even though the website states that valet is complimentary for guests that the sign at the entrance states it's $10/day.

I attended the ACR Learning Center in Reston ,VA. My stay at the hotel was easy, calming, and efficient. The registration process was quick and prompt. The help from the shuttle services to Tyson's Corner Mall was great. Great transportation to the ACR Learning Center.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BPC4 Nice stay
The facility was nice and room was nice it just didn't have the feel of a five star hotel. There were no robes for going to the pool. Was suppose to get a free breakfast with the room that never was very clear on how to get, wasn't worth the hassle. The food was alright. We had room service and the "pad Thai" was not pad Thai which would have been alright if it was really good but was not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by brandibq This hotel is quaint and classy
I enjoyed this hotel very much - especially the Vinifera dining option - however, it is pricy, it doesn't have a spa, they charge for internet, and do not offer any complimentary fare - no social, no happy hour, no continental breakfast. For the price, I think there should be a breakfast option other than a $17 yogurt from room service. Otherwise, it smells AMAZING, is very pretty and is close to Reston Towne Center.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Theresa Could do and look better
For the price, the room could have looked much better. The housekeeping was insufficient, they only make the beds and replace the bathroom accessories. I stayed in a suite, not much better than a regular room. If I had known the difference I would have chosen a regular room. Breakfast was HORRIBLE both days I ate there. So, I did give it a second chance, same result. Orders where never correct, the first time ordered.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jay777 Not like ther Westin Hotels I have stayed at
Light bulbs were out of order in the bathroom, The shower faucet handle broke and the water was running for 2 hours before it was replaced. The draing was clogged in the bath tub, and to top it off, by safe would not open with the correct code. The hotel engineers could not reprogram the safe. The ended up cutting the safer to get my valuables out. Stayed in numberous SPG hotels and this was my worst experience.

Exceptional hotel - beautiul lobby, exceptionally appointed room, customer service at its VERY best (the entire staff we encountered aimed to please and go that extra mile or two or three (!) - especially the evening front desk staff), wonderful breakfast at Vinifera. Staying on Christmas, we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves! We were truly Restin' at the Reston Westin! Thank you for your hospitality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladeetee The Westin Reston Heights Hotel Were all your needs are met
On my recent visit to Reston, VA for my residency at the Univ. of Phoenix all my needs were met at the Westin Reston Heights Hotel. It started with a shuttle from the airport to a shuttle to and from school. This was perfect for me because it cut down on my stress level and no worries about transportation or renting a vehicle. I would recommend it to any student attending their residency in Reston, VA. T.Williams

As a frequent guest of The Westin, Reston, VA, I have come to appreciate the special care and attentiveness amongst the Staff. During my last several check-ins, the Staff welcomed me by name and promptly checked me in. This is most welcomed and appreciated. Further, since I typically check out before my Partner, the Staff goes out of their way to phone the room to make certain my Partner is readied for work!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Carrie207 Easy Stay
The hotel was extremely convenient to the activities of Reston, dulles Airport and an amazing easy drive at 6:45 AM to downtown DC. Easy in and out access and convenient easy to drive in garage. The suite was spacious, including the bathroom with separate tub and shower and the room and particularly the bed had a clean, fresh scent. I was surprised that my room, facing the highway, was quiet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Radex Great hotel except...
I read in bed before going to sleep. The lighting was VERY VERY bad. In order to read a book or the paper I needed a flashlight. Otherwise the hotel was great. I hope this problem is fixed for those of us who read in bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angel5 Best hotel EVER!!
The Weston in Reston, VA is an exceptional hotel. The room was amazing, the staff was extremely courteous, helpful and friendly and the food was amazing. The Hotel Manager worked hard to make sure we had a room that I could navigate since I am physically handicapped for now due to Achilles surgery. We would stay there again and look forward to another trip to Virginia just to stay at the hotel.

The staff was extremely nice and accommodating, and the rooms very comfortable and clean. There was only 1 evening staff member who was not very helpful in assisting me in getting to the Vienna metro stop to pick up my daughter. I ended up at the wrong stop, also located in Vienna but not the final stop on the orange line. Restaurant food excellent. Loved the free covered parking.

Disappointed in new shower head . Is the entire hotel changing to this new model? If so, it is too high, even the handheld is not low enough if you aren't going to watch your hair. If going this way. Please now provide shower caps.
Fitness center needs updating and balls need to be in inflated more often.

I had been trying to connect to a long distance overseas flght with United the other day, but a series of issue forced my United Express connection to be to late for the flight. When United offered a room at 1 AM I was happy, but from the time your driver picked me up at the airport through my entire day the next day, your staff was exceptional ... THANKS

Hotel is located less than 5 minutes from the Reston Town Center. Dulles International Airport is approx 15 miles away and an easy drive. Only concern was that I noticed a teenager sitting at the bar on three consecutive evenings. Management requested he sit at a table on the first occasion but did not seemed concerned thereafter. VA law prohibts such.
