Travelers say rooms here are clean and well-equipped
Customer service is hit or miss at this Westin
As its name suggests, this hotel resides on the other side of the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. in Arlington, Virginia. The Westin Arlington Gateway isn't the first choice for some sightseers, but it does offer respite from the hustle and bustle of our nation's capital. It is a popular choice for business travelers, thanks to the hotel's 24-hour business center; meanwhile, the heated indoor pool and in-room spa treatments are great ways to unwind after a busy day. Plus, guest rooms come equipped with signature Westin amenities, like Heavenly Bath products and Heavenly Beds, to provide guests with extra comfort. Visitors can privately dine in their guest room or feast on Italian cuisine at the in-house restaurant, Pinzimini Restaurant & Lounge. Recent visitors highlight the location and clean accomodations as reasons to stay, while others were not as pleased with the customer service. And an added bonus of choosing to stay here is that you can collect or redeem extras if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member.
