The property used to be a boutique hotel called the Le Rivage, which was built in 2008 to the tune of $28 million. About 3 years ago Starwood took over the hotel and renovated it to turn it into a Westin.
Here are a few of the things that caught my interest today.
Working out while traveling is not easy, and Westin is trying to make it more fun. For those not familiar, FitStar offers customizable workout videos that can be watched via AirPlay on TV, and there’s an app on iOS and Android that can be used on a tablet or phone.
$99 is great low rate for this property. It has an ideal location, especially when you have an early flight the next morning. The hotel has a free shuttle bus to the airport terminals and since the airport is literally across the street you can sleep in much longer than if you were at any other hotel.
Finding a place to leave your car near the airport when going on a trip can be expensive. The overnight rate for lots can really add up especially if you’re going away for several days. Some hotels offer stay & fly packages, and Westin right now has a promotion offering up to 14 days of […]
Westin has been watching the growing trend of travelers looking for quick ways to whip the mind and body into shape while enjoying a relaxing change of scenery.

Westin conducted a survey earlier this year, and found that 41% of travelers are concerned about gaining weight while on the road due to the limited healthy food options. As part of Westin’s well-being movement, they’ve announced the launch of two new nutrition partnerships to help provide travelers with healthy food options. I always like […]
The Westin Arlington Gateway is two blocks from the Ballston metro station, which makes it a great hotel when you want to visit the DC area. I was in town for one night recently and needed a place to stay that was close to the Dulles Airport, and this hotel was just 20 minutes away. Good […]
The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center is located 12 miles southwest of O’Hare airport, and right across the street from Yorktown Shopping Mall. Even though I was staying at the hotel for work, it was definitely nice to have the mall so close. Here’s the mall directory. During check-in, I asked about dining options onsite. Most hotels […]
