Surprisingly, especially given the fact that all the area hotels appellate "Tysons Corner" to their names, there are no hotels in the Tysons Corner proper—they are located mostly in McLean and Vienna, as well as one in Falls Church.
Great (non-chain) food is not far away. Falls Church in particular, has fabulous destination dining, just across the Beltway at 2941 Restaurant (contemporary American, and easily some of the best in the D.C. area), as well as some of the best Vietnamese food outside Vietnam, particularly at Eden Center.
