On a very special Reston Heights: Scented Candles!

Coming soon on Reston Heights: a fancy, high-class hotel will rise Phoenix-like from the ashes ofnear the Chili's and Popeyes. How fancy, you might ask? How high-class? Two words: scented candles!

The Westin Reston Heights announced Thursday that its official opening date will be April 10 and established a sales office where it is showcasing the new hotel's amenities.

The Westin brand, which aims to create a calming environment for travelers, provides guests with fresh flowers, the hotel's signature pillowtop bed and White Tea by Westin scented candles. The 191-room Reston Heights hotel will feature 1,200 square feet of meeting space, a workout facility, a rooftop pool and a restaurant serving locally produced sustainable seafood, according to David Catalon, sales and marketing director.
Wow. We hope that means they'll be serving algae-fed crappie from Lake Anne.


  1. A hotel, office building, and condo have already been built. This is merely the day the hotel opens for business.

  2. Quite right. The Popeye's and Chili's are on the other side of the planned development from the buildings that have already been built. But hey -- scented candles!
