After Nova-Pack, use the Westin Arlington Gateway as your base for a fabulous weekend of sightseeing – without having to rent a car or hire taxis.
Sightseeing by Metro
The Metro is the Washington DC area's safe & reliable subway system, and the Westin Arlington Gateway is just around the corner from the Ballston Metro station on the Orange Line. The Metro is much easier, quicker and more cost effective than driving & parking in Washington DC.
