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
I’ve stayed many times at this Hotel, having a planned surgery next week decided this was a perfect place to relax before. Couldn’t have been more wrong. I stayed on 19th floor. Had apple charger and new earrings ($36) taken after maid while room. Had wonderful Spa treatment and great meals, management comp last day. Still have bad taste in heart. Spa, restaurants parking great . Young women(at front desk) and housekeeper ruined time. Not the place it once was. How sad.
They often say 'location, location', if you are traveling to Northern Va./DC you cannot beat the TC in Tysons. After living in working in NOVA for part of my life I always enjoyed this property for parties et al but never had the chance to stay, we booked 3 nights over the weekend of the 4th and enjoyed the Club Level. Since the property was sold out we were unfortunately not upgraded (Titanium status), which is normally not a huge deal but we could not ever get our room cool and a picture fell off the wall (yes, a first for us). The following night Beverly with Guest Relations had us moved to a beautiful/comfortable suite and life 'was good'. The Club Level staff was great, Shima and Carla were extremely nice and always willing to make your stay great. I will say that the club is a little on the small side and has limited seating, we only made it for breakfast and a evening drink a few times so this was not a problem for us. Since it was a holiday weekend there were lots of families that mingled non-stop in the common areas which was somewhat annoying at times but that's what you get with summer time travel. Overall we enjoyed the obvious great location (did I mention it is connected to an upscale Galleria shopping Mall) and the staff was your typical 'awesome' RC standard,
Hard to go wrong at a Ritz-Carlton where my high expectations nearly always met by their high standards. R-C Tysons certainly fits that bill. Wonderful staff and great rooms regardless of where you stay in the building. Connected to the Tysons Galleria for shopping and other dinging choices, and a really high quality gym for those who partake. Hard to go wrong. Just a note for those who might not know: club access is NOT included for Bonvoy status holders, so if that is important to you be sure to book a club level room.
I have been to many different Ritz Carlton hotels east of the Mississippi. I know they will make me feel special. Their hospitality and friendliness is unsurpassed. Of course the room was a delight. Tysons Corner RITZ connects to an upscale shopping mall (very upscale). Stores are open until 9pm most nights. Restaurants stay open later.
We visited the area for a weekend trip. The lobby is on the 4th floor with a typical high end looking entry area.
The rooms were very average in size and amenities were also minimal.
Customer service was excellent, room service and lobby bar provided great service and professionalism.
The rating is based on the Property, not the service.
