The Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, Va. celebrated the new changes to their Wellington restaurant (named after Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington "Iron Duke") and Westfields Lounge with a warm open house yesterday evening.
The reception featured tasty hors d'oeuvres--including my favorite the oh-so-good butternut squash shooters (it's a shot worth downing) and endless drinks (well, maybe not endless) from the Westfields Lounge to introduce the brand new dynamic aesthetic to the restaurant, lounge and the re-styled Fairfax dining room. All of which I just had to grab some great HDR images from, of course.
Other enhancements include:
- new Wellington's restaurant and pub (serving lunch, dinner and cocktails)
- restyled Palm Court dining room (serves breakfast daily and a popular Sunday brunch; at other times it serves as a dedicated private dining room for events)
- 20 new “business boost” guest rooms that offer easy access to the private dining room and function space as well as premium amenities including 47-inch HDTVs and refrigerators stocked with bottled water
- fitness center updated with advanced equipment
As we discussed earlier, Westfields offers delicious food. And because hotels are so good at making your stay pleasant and as painless as possible, Westfields is offering a Thanksgiving brunch at the Palm Court restaurant Nov. 28 from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Savor over oven-roasted turkey and all the trimmings along with made-from-scratch breads and desserts.

If you've never been to the Westfields Marriott, you really should plan an escape there. Just driving through the entrance can be exciting because the property has an almost estate-looking feel because of its enormity and brick features. The grandeur of the pillars inside the lobby sort of remind you of the Venetian in Vegas, yes really. That's a good thing. It's sophisticated, classy, modern and trendy. A definite go-to spot for travelers and locals alike.
