The Westin Alexandria is a remarkable hotel! Each staff member, from the valet, to checking in, to the servers at the on site restaurant....each staff member treats you as if you have just returned home. The rooms are large, modern, and very clean. The showers are amazing! The rooms offer Starbucks coffee, elegant shampoos and soaps, and in room movies... More

I recently spent 5 days at the Westin while on a business trip. The check in process was smooth, valet and doorman were very helpful. Rooms are very clean and comfortable with great bedding. Housekeeping and our request for toiletries wasn't handled as well as we would have liked but everything else was fabulous. There is a charge for the... More

Check in process was very fast and quite friendly. Room was good sized and clean. Bed was very comfortable the room was quiet...a great night sleep in a hotel - so rare!! Hotel bar/restaurant was clean, friendly and seemed to be quite busy for a weeknight! Would stay here again in a second.

I recently spent one night at the Westin while visiting the Alexandria area. I arrived by car which I parked in front of the hotel where hotel valet parking is available for $28/night. I was greeted by the doorman who didn't offer to take my luggage. I was warmly welcomed by the reception staff and the checkin process was swift... More

1. About 3 blocks from Metro - free shuttle, but we felt safe walking back at night. 2. 20 - 25 minutes from DC. 3. Wi-Fi is $10, not free. 4. Double beds are full, not queen. VERY hard to fit two average sized people in one bed. 5. Sheets and pillows soft and comfy. Bath towels scratchy. Complimentary robe... More

Dear lilden, Thanks for staying with us and offering so much detail regarding the hotel and your experience. We were glad to know that you had a good stay and found the hotel clean and attractive.

Stayed there Aug 1-2nd. Service at the front desk was fast and friendly. There's a free shuttle provided by the hotel that takes you anywhere within 2 miles of the hotel - you can easily get to King St. this way (or walk) without paying the higher prices of the hotels in Old Town. The room (569) was very clean... More

This is the second time my wife and I stayed at this property. Our first visit was to celebrate our wedding anniversary and this most recent stay (from 7/31 thru 8/3) was to attend the International Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses at FedEx Field in Landover, MD. As expected, our room was comfortable, clean and enjoyable. The water pressure in the... More

I REALLY have NO COMPLAINTS from my stay at the Westin! From the moment I checked-in, it was CLEAR that I was in the hands of hospitality professionals! I found the accommodations TREMENDOUSLY relaxing. The bed was FANTASTIC! I HIGHLY recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the area.
