Hotel is in a great area, close to King Street Metro and walking distance to a Whole Foods and a variety of restaurants. Felt very safe walking at all hours. Inside, the hotel is bland when compared to other Westins I have visited. Bathroom was tiny, no in-room safe, several lamps had no bulb in them. Heavenly bed was very... More

I stayed at this hotel, and was lucky to book the concierge (club) floor for an affordable rate (government rate). I had invited my sister to join me so that she could be a tourist while I was at a meeting. It was a truly incredible hotel -- the food and drinks in the lounge were wonderful. Breakfast was lovely,... More

I've stayed at this property before and both times have had good stays. The rooms are clean, well lit and the beds are very comfortable (you can't go wrong with a Westin Heavenly Bed.) There are extra outlets on the nightstand to plug your phone in, which is great. Now, if you could actually get a signal in your room,... More

I've stayed in other hotels in Alexandria closer to Old Town, but this was my first time at the Westin. I was there for a conference and was very please with the Westin as a guest and conference goer. The location of the Westin has great access to transportation options. It is just off the Beltway and is two blocks... More

We are Starwood Gold and booked a king room for 2 nights for points and cash, which made this stay affordable! We were upgraded to club level when when we checked in which was wonderful as it included breakfast and internet. The hotel is located in a quiet area, which is good! We took the free shuttle for dinner, but... More

A friend was flying out from LA and we were planning on a weekend trip to DC. After doing a lot of research online we finally decided to steer away from hotels in DC ($$$) and look for ones in surrounding areas. Booked the Westin as it had one of the lower rates we could find for the finer hotels... More

Booked the night before we arrived, my sister and I stayed one night and couldn't have been happier. Room was clean, shuttle to Old Town was great! Saved lots of money and time. A small refrigerator in the room instead of the wine cooler would have been nice but otherwise the room was wonderful. Booked with a free breakfast in... More

Friendly staff, but the rooms are characterless and sterile. Disappointingly no mini-bar in the rooms - you basically have to call room service for anything you need. Internet charges are extortionate and you have to pay for every device you want to connect to the internet. On that basis alone I wouldn't stay here again! Comfortable beds. Absolutely nothing in...

On our recent trip to Washington DC we stayed at the Westin. It was a really good choice for us. We were within walking distance to the Metro which we took in daily to Washington DC. We felt comfortable in this part of town. Very quaint area. No complaints about the hotel.The parking was a little pricey for staying there.... More

The room as was nice the bed was comfortable just as you'd expect from the Westin BUT the service and the staff were not at all impressive. First the booked me in a handicapped room! I am not handicapped. Then they had no room and had to book me in a double when I ordered a king. Just a comedy... More
