Stayed 4 nights in the Westin for vacation time in DC. most importantly the hotel location is in a very safe location. You can walk around the local streets and feel very safe (even after 11 pm). Hotel is close to metro and we found this to be the best way into DC. There is no free wifi in rooms... More

I recently stayed here while traveling for work. The hotel lobby was nice and the bed was comfortable. My room felt clean, as did the bathroom. Definitely a decent choice for business travel. I got takeout twice from the thai place a block away which was very good (shrimp pad thai was my favorite). Also, there is a starbucks less... More

I've stayed here a few times on business partly because the hotel is very conveniently located to my needs and I've been consistently pleased. The Westin's in the U.S., especially the newer ones, have a clean, fresh look (and smell). I've eaten at the restaurant at this hotel many times when i worked/lived nearby and the service has always been... More

We stay in Old Town often to visit family in the area. We have stayed in the Hilton, Sheraton, Kimpton, etc. and this is a new favorite (depending on the rate offered of course). Brand new (at least it looks it) and immaculately clean, with a terrific, friendly, helpful staff and convenient location. Free on street parking was no problem... More
