VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2011) - Find monumental changes close to the nation's capital at the newly renovated Tysons Corner Marriott, one of more than 500 Marriott Hotels & Resorts properties worldwide.

The Reston, VA hotel's recently completed final phase of a multi-million redesign adds modern polish and savvy updates to nearly every facet of the guest experience, including guest rooms, lobby, Grand Ballroom, meeting rooms, concierge lounge, fitness center, indoor pool and Shula's Steak House, an icon among restaurants in Tysons Corner, VA.

"There's never been a better time to visit Tysons Corner Marriott," says General Manager Shelly DiMeglio. "Modern designs and authentic hospitality focus on fulfilling the expectations of business and leisure travelers."

The Reston, Virginia hotel's 396 new guest rooms and suites are designed to encourage comfort and optimize convenience. A refreshing green palette mingles with rich textures to provide a calming retreat inspired by nature. New beds featuring Marriott's signature plush linens and feather pillows are perfectly positioned to view a high-definition flat-screen television. LED reading lights on the headboard and additional outlet accessibility at the desk make work a relaxing affair. Upgraded furniture, drapery, carpet and bathroom represent a dramatic shift. The Tysons Corner Mall hotel's other enhancements include a mini refrigerator, iHome docking station and in-room safe.
