While Westin isn't my first choice when booking a room, you can't say enough about how consistent their properties are. Cheaper option abound in the area, but the Westin is a safe choice for anyone looking for a nice stay. The location isn't really Old Town but it still very walkable if the weather cooperates.

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The location was recommended by a relative who used to live nearby. It is near, but not in, Old Town Alexandria. There is a shuttle to Old Town from the King St Metro Station - a few mins walk from hotel. There are a handful of restaurants close by and all we tried... More

The hotel was very nice. I found service to be good, but others in my party complained that the desk was not always staffed. My only complaint was the poor lighting in the bathroom. The location was good.

Very nice hotel and wonderful staff. Front desk manager was very helpful with my reservation which I had to cancel and then rebook due to my son being sick and our spring break weekend trip almost having to be cancelled. I loved the location, not far from public transport and getting your car from valet was always pretty quick for... More

Traveling around a bit I am used to catching public transport and walking. This hotel is in a great location being near public transport, walking areas and capital bike share. Also not far to old town. There is a free shuttle that will take you locally and you can call for pick up. The reception were the best we have... More

The Westin Alexandria provides a clean, comfortable room and capable, attentive service. The building itself is a bit sterile, and isn't located within easy walking distance of the downtown Alexandria shops, galleries, farmer's market and cafes. The breakfast menu offers a slim array of choices, and there is no buffet option. Overall, this hotel will feel familiar to "road warriors"... More

We only stayed one night and did not spend much time at the hotel. As with other reviews, the added fees for amenities with a hotel that is fairly expensive to begin with are not well received. Parking was $26 per day where you could come and go. As with another review I read, they tried to charge for 2... More

The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. However, I felt that the hotel was trying to chisel me out of my money, on top of high-end room prices. Wi-fi costs an extra fee; parking was expensive, with no good alternatives; a breakfast at the restaurant cost $ 85 for four people. Other meals went up from there.

Dear Janet, Thank you for staying with us recently. While I was delighted to see your very positive comments concerning our staff, that clearly did not overcome your dissatisfaction with various costs you encountered with internet, parking and breakfast. My apologies that you were not more satisfied with your overall experience. We do make every effort to insure our pricing... More

Travelled here for a friends wedding. In a great location. Close to Metro station to travel into DC. Whole Foods, Starbucks and Panera within walking distance. Comfortable rooms. QUIET!! hotel. Good fitness center for the health buffs. Close to airport as well. About a 15 minute cab ride or again, grab the metro.

I travel a lot on business and therefore find myself in a lot of hotel rooms. This bed is one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. They do call it a "heavenly bed" and that is exactly what it is. The workout gym facilities is also top notch with a large room, nice new equipment and... More
