TYSONS CORNER, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and that's never truer than when you're traveling. Whether people are looking to refuel before meetings or get energized for a day of sightseeing, there's nothing like being on the road to work up an appetite. But guests of the Tysons Corner Marriott have even more reason to leave their diets at home. Its new Stay for Breakfast package combines relaxation in organically-inspired rooms with rejuvenation at its American restaurant, Shutters, for one palatable promotion.
Just in time for spring holidays, the Stay for Breakfast Package is ideal for couples looking for a weekend escape or parents on the hunt for a family-friendly hotel near Tysons Corner. Guests will enjoy thoughtfully designed rooms that stand out among those of other Washington, D.C.-area hotels for their refreshing sensibilities. Inspired by nature, the guest rooms' aesthetic features the right blend of luxury (think plush bedding and THANN bath amenities) and tech-savvy features (enhanced Internet service is available), all enveloped by soothing natural hues, clean lines and warm woods.
After a restful evening, guests can capitalize on this most tempting of Tysons Corner hotel packages and make their way to Shutters restaurant. (The package includes breakfast for two parents and two children ages 12 and younger.) Named for the distinctive feature that dominates the décor, Shutters celebrates modern American cuisine at its best. The restaurant is at once relaxed and sophisticated to welcome everyone from families enjoying their morning repast, to businesspeople gathering for an impromptu drink in the evening. And the menu reflects this diversity of experiences, offering a variety of American favorites to satisfy all palates.
Considering the McLean hotel's easy access to the D.C. metro area and the 495, visitors would do well to eat a hearty breakfast. After all, the sights of the nation's capital are just a Metro ride away, and the hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to both the Metro station as well as area attractions like the Mosaic District and Tysons Corner shops. Plus guests can always just walk across the street to one of the country's most influential retail destinations, Tysons Corner Center.
Rates for the Stay for Breakfast package start at $99 per night, and the promotion is available through December 31, 2014. Travelers should use the promotional code S4B when booking a reservation to secure the package.
