... adjusting our plans slightly and ended up with an extra night in D.C. With our flight out of Washington scheduled for 6am on Sunday, I decided it would be best to book into a hotel close to Reagan national airport and settled on the "Best Western Pentagon motel". Not the prettiest area or accommodation as you can imagine, but it was clean, conveniently situated to the remaining attractions we wanted to visit and, most importantly cheap! Did I mention that we are doing this ...
... to go but Simon met the Japanese young lady in the lobby of his hostel and invited her along. We set out to town looking for a bar. The Japanese lady had just arrived in town and I gave her the general lay of the land and things to do and see. She told me her name but I forget it now. After stopping at a market for Simon to grab a bite to eat, we ended up at a Danish bar. The beer was very cold and great tasting. They say the beer tastes ...

We walked from our hotel to the Crystal City Sports Pub for breakfast. We took up all 3 floors! Then we went to the Reflecting Pool for a group picture in front of the U.S. Capitol! After that, we went to the White House, which was really cool! Next, we went to the Natural and American History Museums and then to the Smithsonian for lunch. That was about the only thing we did in the ...
... in rich ones (again, hindering continued development). Thus, we are left with food deserts, skyrocketing type 2 diabetes rates, and 1 in 4 children in the United States living with no consistent access to enough nutritious foods to live a healthy life. Therefore, even though as a whole the United States has developed and progressed at incredible speed, there are those that have been left behind and suffer greatly. The system ...

We were able to find a sit down restaurant and had a light meal, while watching the news regarding the earthquake. Sheila asked that the News be audible, and the bartender explained that 'Mad Money' was a favorite program, but did turn on the sound for the news. After taking a relaxing break we meandered down to C 1 section for our 924 flight to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Dulles Herndon
I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in Feb. 05. The room was nice with a King bed and vanity area. On the first night, the sound of baby screaming and crying from the room across the hallway woke me up at 3am. On the second night, I couldn't fall asleep until past 2am because of the sound of snoring from my neighbor next door. On the third night, again kept awake by the snoring from next door, I finally called the front desk at midnight and requested a room change. They told me they were booked solid and couldn't provide a comparable room. But they did have a small room with a double bed and a shower. I told them as long as it is a non-smoking room that is quiet, I will take it. But they refused to refund me the difference in room price for the rest of my stay.
Hotel Staff Friendly, Rooms OK
The hotel staff were friendly at this hotel. They helped us when we were distressed at IAD by UA. The guy who drives the shuttle even helped us find a restaurant that catered to our dietary needs and dropped us off and picked us up.
The room was OK, but the bed was great and we got a good night's sleep.
Watch out for one of the hotel receptionists. She was a little too inquisitive about us, which is surprising since most hotels are happy for business. And this hotel was probably about 10% at capacity.
Hyatt out-did itself. Just watch that the menu doesn't break the bank and that you can find something to eat if you have dietary constraints. Hyatt doesn't cater to these things.
Park and Fly
Had an early morning flight out of Dulles and rather than getting up at 4 AM to drive to the airport from Maryland, I took advantage of the Park and Fly option at the hotel. Stay a night and leave your car at the hotel while your out of town. Got a decent promotion deal - the Romance Package - so this was not that much more expensive than parking at the airport.
Got a very nice room with a view of the airport. Our deal included a buffet breakfast but we had to really rush it because it opens at 6:30 AM and the airport shuttle only leaves every half hour and we had to be on the 6:45 AM bus.
New Year's Eve Party
My husband and I stayed at your hotel on December 31, 2004, and we had a blass. Your hotel personnel made our stay impossible not to want to come again. When we first enter your establishment, we were greeted by warm and friendly people. Your Desk personnel were great and very friendly when they checked us in and also the same type of response when we checked out. Your hotel rooms were spotless and very unique. This year, I have stayed in serveral hotels, non of them were on your level and that includes the Sheraton. My husband and I were very impress with your establishment. From now on, nothing but the Hyatt for me. and my friends. I just want to thank you for all your great service.
Don't recommend it
I was extremely dissatisfied with the Hyatt Dulles, mainly due to the hot water issues every day, even after I complained, and the disgusting stains on the couches and the middle of the floor.
Pool area and workout area are very nice.
This is a very nice hotel with gorgeous lobby. The front desk staffs are very friendly and checked me in very promptly. The guest room is very nice with King size bed and a sofa bed with center island that has TV can be turn 180 degree to watch at "living room corner" or at "bedroom corner". The island has big drawers on both side, very handy and can store lost of items.
We stayed here on 7/30 waiting to send home our grandson to Georgia. The reservation I made guaranteed me a suite with 2 double beds. When we checked in we were told they did not have any double beds and that they would fix the sofa or roll in a cot. We decided to go for the sofa. I felt it would be more comfortable. Wrong, my grandson is 13 and small for his age. It almost was to short. We had a kind size bed that was not very comfortable. All in all I guess I got my $79 worth. As they say you get what you pay for. We ate in the dining room. What a mistake. The food was not that great and we had 1 beer each with dinner and my grandson had rootbeer. Our bill was $134 and the service was terrible. We stayed on the way to pick up our guy at the Marriott Suites for the same price. What a difference. Will never stay at a Hyatt again. It was my first and last time. I will stay with the Marriott from now on.
The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and the rooms are amazing. We stayed in a mini-suite and enjoyed every moment that we were there. We enjoyed the stay over Valentines Day weekend and were more then taken care of by the staff. The in-house restaurant was wonderful. The location in a bit out of the way, but it's a great hotel.
Awesome hotel for the money. Food and service in restaurant is way abve expectations. Great waiters!
