Stop over in São Paulo and left rio at 20:50 after a hair raising taxi ride in which I was tempted to write up my will? The cab driver, alias Schumacher drove at a steady 140 km for three hours in order to take us from Cabo Frio to Rio international Airport. We of course, made it there in record time, only three hours and with major traffic as opposed to a minimum 3/12 - 4 hours without. Once we boarded the plane for our first flight which ...

The Crime and Punishment Museum laid out, among other things, the sick and spine tingling ways of serial killers, with Ted Bundy featuring large.

It was now around 7:30 pm and we were getting a little tired having been out in the heat for nearly 10 hours so we walked back to our original departure point before catching another bus back to our hotel. We got back to our room, had a refreshing shower then had dinner at the Hotel Bar watching the replay of the British Open Golf.
Traffic heading west across the Bay Bridge on summer Sundays is famously awful. In order to avoid any problem, Bob asked our driver Jerry to call for us at 10:30 AM. We made record time and arrived at Dulles before 12:30. The check-in area was empty and there were no agents on duty at either SAS ( our airline) or its nearest neighbors, ANA and South African Airways.

Yesterday was a late night at work. I left at 7 pm as we had 200 new laptop to unbox! It's always so exhausting when i work late and then have to take the train and bus and drive home! I am so looking to some great time in Mauritius. This weekend i have to pack the suitcases. I'm going to Kohls one last time and to Costco to get Chinese sausages, possibly 2 more boxes of ferrero rocher. I think we might be okweight ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles Chantilly
Great Place to be Snowed in!!
I got stuck in the DC area in that huge storm Feb '06. We decided to stay here because they had an onsite restaurant and valet etc. I wish we would have stayed here the entire time! What a beautiful luxurious hotel. It looked like a chateau and as the snow started to fall it only got prettier! I went for a wintery walk through the grounds - which the staff had already shoveled. Plus the valet dug our car out for us.
If I have to be snowed in anywhere I want it to be a place with huge down-filled beds, a giant bathtub and a very cool little late night bar with great soups and cocktails. It made me feel like I was in France.
Quick, refreshing saturday night getaway
I took my husband here for a Saturday night getaway for his birthday last weekend. We liked this place a lot, in part because it feels as though you are far away from suburban/metropolitan DC, when in fact it is only 40 minutes in good traffic from downtown. Service was nice from the desk clerks to the waiters. The Sunday brunch was awesome. We had a quiet, seemingly recently refurbished room. Small bathroom with marble features and two vanities. Comfy bed. Room was like any upscale Marriott hotel room. Small indoor pool and whirlpool were fun, plus steam and dry sauna in both the mens and womens locker rooms. We felt refreshed after a night's stay here. Only thing they need to repair are their elevators, which did not function correctly.
My wife didn't want to leave this place..!!!
My wife and I traveled to Northern Virginia, near Washington, D.C. for my cousin's wedding and we stayed at this hotel. We were floored at seeing the beauty of this place. It's in a really clean neighborhood, with quite a few office buildings of Fortune 500 companies in the neighborhood, but the hotel itself is in like a garden enclave of sorts.
As we came up the winding driveway, we were stunned at the beauty of the hotel at first glimpse. Right from the valet staff that took our rental car to the front desk check-in experience was smooth. On the way upstairs I picked up a free copy of the Wall Street Journal. We had a room on the 2nd floor of this 4-story hotel and the view outside our room was gardens and a winding path.
As soon as we walked in, the first thing we saw was a bathrobe on the bed.. inviting us to immediately get comfortable in the place. It is really tastefully decorated. We were impressed by the walk-in closet that had two entrances - one from the bathroom (with two sinks) and one from the bedroom. The bed itself was to die for. At one point I was in such deep sleep that my wife had to really shake me to get me up to make it to the wedding.
For breakfast we ordered a Healthy Start - fresh fruit, granola and non-fat yoghurt, freshly-squeezed orange juice and coffee - very tasty.
When we returned from the wedding late that night, we were entranced by the romantic allure of the hotel with its lights at night - just wow!
My wife was sad to leave the next morning - her tag line that entire weekend was - "Can we stay here longer?" and "Do we really have to leave?".
'Nuff said. We loved this place and highly recommend it to everyone.
Very comfortable, well-equipped
I stayed one night here - got it on a Priceline bid ($68 all in). The location is a bit secluded but I guess that's part of the classic charm. Coming from IAD, the shuttle required reservations 24 hrs in advance but leaving the hotel, you could just board at any time. It's a good 15 min ride so I would recommend the shuttle over a taxi.
*Room was clean, bed was comfy, and room size was about average.
*Bathroom was a little small (door almost hits the toilet) but the shower pressure was excellent and fixtures were modern. Toiletries were above avg.
*Gym was well-equipped with good range of machines and just enough space. There was also a nice indoor pool and jacuzzi.
*Checkout was at 1pm, which was a nice surprise.
*I had zero cellphone reception. Not sure why - didn't think we were that far out from civilization.
*Affordable dining options were limited.
Lovely, clean hotel with great food!
We live approx 30 minutes from the Westfields Marriott, so when we need a quick overnight away from the kids, this is the place we choose! It's very clean and inviting, gorgeous inside and out. The Palm Court restaurant is amazing. The food and service are excellent, and it is generally very quiet. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!
Did anyone mention the comfortable beds?
The place is a first class resort! The rooms were elegant! The place is elegant! The beds were unbelievably comfortable! The comforters and pillows were fantastic! We were only there to spend the night quickly, but wished we had had more time here! It definitely is secluded and we were wondering where we were driving to because the area is so dark. I recommend arriving during the daytime only because the Marriott sign is not lit up at night. But we managed to find it! A definitely elegant place to stay! And after we left, we discovered we had left behind an item in the room, they promptly shipped it to us!
A Wedding Stay
Had a wonderful stay. After a 11 Hr. roadtrip it was
very relaxing. The staff was very accomodating. The Pub fare was excellent and the Pub Staff were
top notch. I would recommend a stay to anyone.
Thanks so much
I truly enjoy the Marriott Westfields in Chantilly
I did not realize that Virginia had such an elegant and beautiful place that is convenient yet secluded. I would recommend this Resort to all of my friends. Also the food was excellent, we had a choice of the most delightful food you could have imagined.
Highly Recommended Hotel!
I can't begin to express my satisfaction with this hotel and their staff. After finding our hotel reservations at the Amerisuites had been cancelled (have no idea why), we were left 400 miles away from home, with a newborn, without a place to stay. After contacting the Westfield's Marriot and reserving a room, we were in for a treat. The grounds were gorgeous and the inside of the hotel was spectacular. The staff was always friendly and helpful and catered to our every need. We ended up chatting with many of the employees and had a fabulous time. We will definitely be staying there again.
Superficially, a lovely place...BUT...
I was anticipating great things from the Westfields Marrriott upon my first browse of their website. Imagine my surprise then upon my initial interaction w/the staff, when I called to check on my parents' arrival, and the front desk folks patched me through to an incorrect room where the guests did not speak English. When I called the front desk and explained nicely what had happened, they asked me if I was sure that the folks who I had spoken with were not my parents.
THEN, when I stopped by the hotel to visit that same day and asked for a room number, they would not give it out due to security reasons. I understand that this is policy. But the morons insisted that I connect w/the SAME people who were NOT my parents again. I interacted with three different staff. All were equally condescending, and unwilling to help me resolve the situation, and treated me like the "confused party." (never mind that they had given my parents' room to the guests that they insisted were my parents)
In a SERVICE industry, I expect much higher. For a hotel that regularly charges $200some a night, I expect more. Apparently, common courtesy is not only lacking in a standard environment, but in a service industry as well.
