This is a nice Westin. I like staying here because price is always good and it is a 5 minute walk to the Metro so you don't have to deal with the DC traffic. Also like having a Starbucks in same building.

It appears that perhaps I had higher expectations for the Westin, Alexandria VA than they were able to meet and I left a somewhat disappointed guest. On the surface they did the basic: took our car, checked us in, showed us to the room, etc. but nothing more. There was never any sign of good customer service. Ever. Which makes... More

Okay stay. Room was a little dusty. One of the pillows on the bed was stained. Not the typical four star hotel. Service was great though. Everyone was very friendly. Had Wi-Fi pool and workout room which were great. Could use extra seating in the room.

I booked the Westin Alexandria because I would arrive at the National airport at night, a little bit too late. Also I wanted to reach the hotel and take a rest soon. The distance from the metro station, King Street, was not so long. The room was good and had enough space. Besides, the scenery from the room was nice.... More

Dear 814traveller, Thanks for staying with us recently and taking the time to share these comments.

The location is great for business its close to government offices but not as convenient for dining. They do have a shuttle to take you to places around the area and just them when you are ready to go back to the hotel. It was actually to have some drinks during dinner and not worry about driving.

Stayed overnight for a work trip. Nothing was disappointing, but nothing was exceptional. Restaurant has a "sports bar" atmosphere - big screen TVs over the bar and a noise levels higher than most restaurants. Pros: Great location right next to the US Patent & Trademark office. Comfy bed. The restaurant was good, but I had very basic food (turkey BLT... More

Up-to-date, well-placed upscale hotel in comfortable setting with minimal traffic, close to several small and chain eating places...but NO FOOD SERVICE in the hotel except for limited, very expensive (albeit tasty) room service. Great beds, classy décor, ergonomically well-appointed bathroom, but at this price point I believe customers have a RIGHT to expect at LEAST free breakfast if not a... More

This Westin was the choice for the trade show I was attending. It is well located about 4 blocks from the King St. Metro stop (which seems farther at 2pm in 95 degree heat carrying luggage). The rooms were nice with "rainshower" style showerheads. The Westin's rather unique incentive for "green" behaviors (not asking for fresh towels all the time),... More

My now husband treated me to the Presidential Suite at this lovely Westin, as with all Westin's, it did not disappoint. Under the cherry blossom tree's my boyfriend became my fiance' and is now my better half, will always remember the Westin as the hotel where my life truly bloomed.
