What is the Best Reston Hotel?


1484271751_08_thumbs_upThe Best Reston Hotel: Hyatt
Why: Shuttle to Dulles Airport

The Hyatt at Reston is in close proximity to Dulles airport, and offers a shuttle from Dulles airport. Unfortunately, the hotel doesn’t shuttle guests to the Metro, and the walk would take 20 to 30 minutes, a short cab ride will have you at the Reston Metro in minutes. The hotel is surrounded by shops and restaurants due to its location in Reston Town Square. With rates being pretty high compared to nearby options at the Spring Hill and Tysons Corner station the Hyatt has trouble standing out beyond its convenience to both Dulles and the Metro.

Staying Near the Reston Metro

nieghborhood_vibe_48Reston Neighborhood: The main appeal of Reston is its proximity to Dulles Airport. There is a $5 shuttle from the Wiehle-Reston East metro stop, making this location an ideal place to stay for those heading in and out of Dulles. Reston, Virginia, is a suburb of Washington, DC now connected to the city by the newly opened silver metro line. This station is unique because for the next four years it will bridge the gap between arriving in Dulles International Airport and catching the metro. Currently, Reston lies at the end of the silver line (the Wiehle-Reston East stop), though there are plans to extend the line out to Washington Dulles International Airport in the coming years. Reston is an affluent suburb made up of both commuters and professionals who work at the many companies headquartered in and around Reston. While areas of Reston are walkable, a car is the preferable means of transportation—but beware, this area is incredibly congested on weekdays, so plan extra time for traffic for your trips.
