Stayed here for a long weekend getaway with my husband in August 2014. We decided to stay in Alexandria instead of downtown DC because the summer hotel prices are so high in DC; also we wanted to explore Alexandria. Wow, was this a great decision. We may never stay in DC again. The King St. metro is a short walk... More

The hotel was awesome with the exception of the receptionist who was not very friendly at all. I was greated with a barely audible "Hey" No, "How may I help you" or "What can I do for you today."

So about a year ago this hotel switched from being a corporate-owned hotel to being a franchise-hotel. Some of the team members that wanted to stay in the promotion and retirement system for Marriott corporate switched to work and/or manage at other Marriott hotels nearby. However, many of the staff stayed on to work with the franchise team. The new... More

The rooms in this hotel are amazing. Full kitchens, great heating and ventilation system. The hotel is very close to the train tracks but the soundproofing is excellent so we could not hear any noise from outside or within the hotel.

I come to Alexandria 3 times a year for work and typically stay at the Westin. Although the quality of the Westin seems to have gone down it definitely knows how to make you feel pampered.
