As the title says, it is top-notched, mid-priced hotel a convenient 10 minute walk from the King Street Metro. From DCA it was a $15 Uber ride and for others, a $4 ride via the metro. The hotel felt new and modern with an elegant albeit smallish lobby. My room was nice and had a very comfortable bed and I... More

We stayed here on April 10, 2015. There was a problem with the heat and the reception area was cold. We were assured that there were no problems in the rooms. Our room was in the 60's but when we adjusted the thermostat it quickly warmed up. When we came down for dinner we found the cocktail lounge and restaurant... More

I've come to expect great service and rooms from Westin and this place did not disappoint. We were visiting friends in Alexandria and their place was right down the street from this hotel. It's located in a great area with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. The rooms were very clean and the bed was very comfortable to sleep in.... More

I recently traveled to the Westin Alexandria for New Years Eve and boy was I impressed. When I checked in the front desk agent was very friendly and professional. I didn't get his name however he was tall and skinny build. It was very pleasant dealing with such a talented and energetic individual. Thank you!

This is a good choice for business travel. It is a clean, well run property with a solid staff. I stayed for 2 nights in December and was impressed. You aren't going to go wrong here. It is about 4-5 blocks from the King Street metro - so you have to factor in the walking. Also it is several blocks... More

This was a nice hotel. Very nice amenites. Room was clean and of a good size. Workout area was fairly well equipped for a hotel gym. Locker room area was very nice. Mini-fridge was a nice thing to have. Just a few blocks away from Metrorail and shuttle service into Old Town. Also walking distance from many restaurants like Thiesmann's.... More

The location is nice. Close to Regan and the shuttle service they provide to downtown Alexandria is beneficial. Our room was a little worn with several scratches and dents on the desk and furniture.
