Rated 5 out of 5 by Billy1973 Wonderful stay
I loved this Westin. Worthy of the Westin name. Staff were great from the valet to the check in staff. All were friendly and helpful. The hotel is very chic and well maintained. Location was exceptionally convenient to metro and plenty of restaurant options within a few steps of the hotel. Room was great. Recognized for spg members, given executive level room.
Westin never disappoints!

Rated 5 out of 5 by madrick5 One of the best starwood hotels in the country...
I've been staying at the Westin Arlington Gateway for about 2 years now and I have to say that this is not only one of the best hotels in the DC Metro area, but could very well be considered for one of the best hotels in the country. The staff is top notch, the business team extremely responsive, and who doesn't love a good heavenly bed?!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BigBill76 Beautiful hotel, very good, not perfect.
> Bartenders, waitstaff were excellent - responsive, efficient, friendlly but not too friendly.
> One morning I mentioned smell of mildew in bathroom (probably shower curtain) which was not attended to.
> One front desk attendant was friendly, but with a slight patronizing attitude. She almost certainly had no awareness of this.
> Restaurant is very good, upscale, but no offerings (maybe at the bar?) if you want something simpler, like a burger & fries. Often when I travel for work the hotel restaurant is the only thing open when I get finally leave the office, and I need something other than a $32 Chilean Sea Bass or $35 steak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DDR56 Sleek and Modern
Westin Hotels are always of high quality and this one was no different. I loved the water bottles and tea in the lobby and friendly staff upon arrival. The rooms were sleek and modern with comfortable bedding. The bathroom had cute leaf-shaped soap. The breakfast buffet was delicious. I loved the smoked salmon and capers and the cheesy scrambled eggs were moist and delicious. My only complaint is my air conditioner did not cool my room well enough at night. It was adequate for most people, I'm sure, but I like it cooler and no matter what temperature I set it at, it was not going to go down any further. All in all, an excellent hotel, though.

I fell in love as soon as I opened the door and saw the terrycloth robe on the bed. The view from my window was breath taking. My favorite restaurant was six steps across the street. The juice and fruit in the voyer was nice, refreshing and healthy. The Westin is a fabulous place to stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cripper175WLM Another great stay in DC
Another great stay in the DC area. I found the hotel to be very clean and organized. Even with the busy hustle and bustle of DC the hotel setting was comfortable and calm. Definitely staying there again on my next visit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bellababy Overpriced but not bad
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel but felt the room was way overpriced. Upon arrival we were not given the type of room we requested even though it was fully paid for in advance of arrival. We were credited a portion of our room rate to compensate for the error. At times it was difficult to communicate with the staff at the front desk due to language barriers. My mother also reserved a room at this hotel which was incorrect as well. Her situation required changing rooms after the first day due to the fact that she is handicapped. Overall the hotel was clean and quiet but the hotel is aging and you could see it in the furniture and décor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marc0673 Another excellent stay
I travel to NoVA (Arlington) frequently for work. The Westin Arlington Gateway is my preferred hotel when in the area, and really,my home away from home. Staff is always warm and welcoming, greeting me by name. Service in the bar and restaurant, friendly and the food pretty good. Noticeable improvement in wifi connectivity enabling web-based video conferencing.
