This hotel offers quality at a resonable price. From the bellmen to the front desk to all the little extras, they provide a relaxing experience. Such things as Starbucks coffee and bottled water in my room, to the robe on the back of the bathroom door to the quality soaps and shampoo all made the stay enjoyable. The bed was... More

Pros: - modern look - quiet, comfortable room - decent gym - good restaurant Cons: - housekeeping needs some work (large cobweb in bathroom and hair on sink) - not many nearby dining options - fairly long walk to Metro (but I believe shuttle is available at certain times) Overall, very nice hotel.

I have stayed at Westin's all over the United States and this one definitely appeared like it was in need of some updating and TLC in the rooms and in the hallways to the rooms. The carpet looked like it was from the 80's or 90's and the bathrooms looked like that of a 1 or 2 star hotel. I... More

I stayed here for 6 nights For a training session. The rooms were extremely comfortable. They even provided free water! Hotels usually make you pay, this was a nice benefit. The workout facility was well equipped. The restaurant was a little overpriced, but decent. There are options within walking distance. The best options are on King Street. The hotel offers... More

This is in an office area a few blocks to the yellow/blue Metro. Hotel is nice, with a noisy lobby, indoor pool, and good rooms. Beds are great. Internet policy is lousy - charge for each device, so we checked email on the free accounts in the lobby. Don't know why hotels do this. There are limited dining options nearby,... More

I have recently switched to Starwood properties from Marriott properties because a friend told me they were better. After having stayed at several Sheraton and Westin properties I have to agree. A recent stay at The Westin Alexandria in Virginia will have me coming back for more. The staff there, Robin, John, and Kenny were amazing from check-in to check-out.... More

Excellent location, far better than staying in Crystal city or in the district. Regardless of whether a business trip or weekend getaway. This Westin is a refreshing newer property with all the necessary supporting aminities within 5 minute walk or $10 cab ride. The BIGGEST problem besides traffic in DC area is $20-40 parking fees. It's common for the hotels... More

Pretty much what I said above. Typically stay at the Residence on Old Carlyle. Nothing wrong with that place whatsoever, but the excellent bartender (can't remember her name), and laid back atmosphere of the Jameson Grille has convinced my buddy and I to switch to the Westin our next business trip to Alexandria. Less expensive, higher quality, and more laid... More
