Westin Arlington Gateway (January 2021)


Booked a one night in a cityview King (the most basic room) on Marriott.com for $93.72 including tax.


I had regarded this as a fairly nice, updated property based on past stays. Most everything was closed with COVID, and the property was fairly quiet.


The hotel was very quiet when I arrived. The front desk clerk noted I’d requested an online checkin, which was on my phone. No acknowledgement of Bonvoy status and no upgrade whatsoever.


The room was ridiculously small, with a king bed, small seating area, and small desk. The HVAC and the refridgerator were also both ridiculously loud.

If it were not just me for one night, I’d have asked to be moved.

This was a disappointment return to a property I’ve enjoyed in the past.

The Chaedrol Hotel Guide does not provide “balanced” reviews of stays, but rather our reviewers’ experiences at properties. Star ratings are based on price, so that a luxury or budget hotel may both receive either no or five stars, and factor in extenuating circumstances. Your actual experience may vary.
