CHANTILLY, Va. – On Nov. 7, the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles unveiled its newly renovated guest rooms, dining additions and mobile apps. Attracting more meeting planners played a vital role in the remodeling efforts.
“We want to make business and social events easy to plan, productive to run and enjoyable to attend at our Virginia Conference Center,” said Scott McClinton, general manager of the Westfields Marriott. “Our changes increase flexibility and accessibility and amplify the charm and sophistication of the hotel’s overall aesthetic.”
Twenty new “business boost” guest rooms feature easy access to the private dining room and function space, as well as premium amenities including refrigerators stocked with bottled water and 47-inch HDTVs. The hotel will also soon open an updated fitness center.
The hotel renovated the former Iron Duke into Wellington’s, a restaurant featuring locally influenced cuisine, craft beers and regional wines. The hotel’s second restaurant, Palm Court, offers breakfast in a newly decorated, club-like atmosphere. Palm Court’s private dining room lies adjacent to the third-floor function space at the hotel’s conference center.
Marriott Hotels and Resorts recently released apps that can be used at Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles. New apps include:
1.) Red Coat Direct allows organizers to adjust and edit their meeting requests with the push of a button
2.) Workspace On Demand gives guests the ability to book meeting spaces from their phone
3.) Mobile Check-In ensures guests can check-in up to two hours before arrival. The app also automatically notifies attendees when a room is ready.
