Uhh the Marriott is the closest and fine. Otherwise stay in DC proper and do the commute

like

By McLean I assume near Tyson’s. There’s a Ritz, Marriott, and a Westin. I prefer them in that order

The Ritz is good if you’re in Tysons - can be price comparable to other Marriotts in the area. I stay at the Hyatt because their properties are more consistent and they have a better rewards program. The commute from DC is tough. I’ve stayed at the Park Hyatt and done the commute, it’s not necessarily worth it unless you have a reason to be in DC (dinner, friends, etc).

Yep, what A1 said. Westin has a good breakfast though

Marriott in Tyson’s has tiny rooms. Prefer the Westin over Marriott

Ritz in Tyson’s - nothing else

I live in Tyson’s, go to the ritz if it’s within budget

Just received cousin's invite to her wedding and it's on a Sunday.

I'm annoyed because I think it's a but disrespectful to your guests to make them all travel and do it on a Sunday so people have to take time off work Monday in order to attend. I know I don't have to attend, but shouldn't it be convenient for guests?
