I stayed for 3 weeks at this hotel in April 2016. The first time that I've ever stayed in a hotel that long :) But I enjoyed my stay. The Westin Arlington Gateway is close to the Ballston metro station (about 5 minutes walk). There's also the Ballston common shopping mall, a small mall but you can get the essentials...

I liked the location. It is very close to metro station. There are several restaurants within walking distance. Only issue is that the hotel is pet friendly but there is no glass near by. There is a small corner near street. If you opt out cleaning services, you are supposed to get $5 food credit or mileage. But I wasn't...

This well- located hotel is right in the middle of an exploding area of Arlington. It sits almost on the corner of Glebe and Wilson Boulevard, three blocks from Route 66 - a major artery in and out of DC and two blocks from a metro station. Surrounding the hotel are numerous very good restaurants, Macy's, etc. and yet, in...

We ended up here by chance, and a few hours early. The hotel allowed us early check in at no extra cost. The entire staff had smiles on their faces, and we're ready to lend a helping hand. My family and I will definitely be looking at other Westin properties in the futrue.

Stayed here two night to attend a conference. The hotel is fine. Service was good. Parking is only valet. The conference food was good. However, their wireless kept going in and out, as did the cable TV in the evening.

If you're visiting Washington and want to stay outside of the city this is a great option. The hotel is very nice and the staff was incredibly helpful.
