Indulgent suburban VA digs outside DC with a spa and top-notch eats
Located in the shopping mecca of Tysons Corner outside Washington, D.C., this hotel offers big city style with suburban comforts. That means an indulgent day spa with an indoor pool, steam rooms and saunas; a jewel box pastry shop with airy macarons and rich cupcakes; a wine bar with 40 by-the-glass vintages. The 398 rooms have a residential elegance with high thread-count sheets, plush terry robes and stately dark wood furniture. And with Tysons Galleria shopping just next door, nearby D.C. shouldn’t take up all of your “going out” time.
In the Area
Outside the bustle of Washington, D.C., in northern Virginia, Tysons Corner is anchored by its massive upscale shopping malls. Work out your credit card at the more than 100 shops of the Tysons Galleria. Join the power brokers supping on steaks and single malts at The Palm. Then indulge in a little nature time on the rugged, bluff-top trails of Scott’s Run Nature Preserve. Or dip into the local history with a visit to the 1771 Claude Moore Colonial Farm.
How to Get There
Family of 4 kids 7/11. Booked with Amex plat fhr. Prev stayed at mandarin oriental in dc and the Hyatt at Tyson’s-i recommend both highly. Headed to a baseball game. (Wouldn’t recommend staying here for a ball game)
Pros-5 min walk to metro.
Connected to fancy mall if that’s your thing. Think Gucci, Burberry etc.
Kids check in was a nice touch.
Fhr- $60 daily breakfast credit, $100 venue credit (breakfast credit doesn’t work on brunch...)
Cons- The markups are significant. $200 for a bottle of $50 Veuve.
-asked for a razor it never came. Asked again 2x the next day and it was brought to the room.
-valet was $45/day. I expected this for dc. Not a big deal but the parking garage is literally right there.
-it’s remodeled, but it’s an OLD building with new paint. The elevators were painfully slow. Upon 11am checkout we waited 15 minutes (on 8th floor) and decided to take the stairs down with our bags. We exited the parking garage...
Not something the hotel can really control.
Met a few suits in the elevator one day and asked what they were here for. She said isn’t it obvious by the way we are dressed “a conservative political rally.” ok.
We did have a great time across the street (free shuttle offered) or a 10 minute walk. We went to the Hyatt which we had stayed at before and highly recommend. There is a lovely courtyard with a great indoor outdoor restaurant/pub I think Barrel and Bushel or something like that. Can’t beat on a nice day. The courtyard has a bunch of games and a younger crowd (mid 20s to 40s)
Overall I would only come back for afternoon tea if that’s your thing.
I have happily visited the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner, Virginia on a number of occasions for meetings. It is a nice hotel and the people who work there are always gracious and helpful and very friendly.
We rented a king room to attend a wedding reception at this hotel. It's a big property with nice touches in the rooms -- Nespresso machines, chocolates at turn down, robes --and comfortable beds. Check-in was easy and housekeeping was efficient and friendly. The event spaces were beautiful. Since we arrived on a drizzly evening, it was nice to be able to visit the Galleria shops without going outside. I thought this hotel was lovely overall and a surprisingly good value, even without the wedding room rate. My only small quibble is with the somewhat clunky self-parking process. We paid for the hotel to validate our ticket but the garage didn't recognize that when we tried to exit, so we ended up paying double rather than going back in to sort it out. Still, based on the rest of our stay, I imagine the staff would've straightened that out for us if we'd followed up about it. Would recommend!
It's our first time at this hotel and enjoyed it very much. The hotel is connected to Tysons Galleria in the center of the Tysons Corner area. The room is well decorated and comfortable. The kids had lots of fun during our stay. They got some nice goodies upon Kids Check-in. The kids meal at the restaurant on the 4th floor is abundant and offers great value. The swimming pool has a good size and there was a life guard on duty. A very nice weekend getaway!
The Ritz used to be such a special place to stay but the competition has really improved. The Ritz had a nice room, decent bathroom and a good fitness center. The hotel is in great location and attached to an upscale mall, Unlike the Residence Inn I just stayed at in Philly, it did not come with breakfast, have a refrigerator or a place to eat in the room. It almost seems odd but when you include the cost differential the Residence Inn is hard to beat.
