I don't usually do this but I was so dissatisfied with the service at this hotel I could not resist. The service from the front counter was well below par. They did not seem to know much about the hotel and were not helpful when asked basic questions. There is no complimentary breakfast not even coffee. You have to pay... More

My parents stay at the Westin in Alexandria frequently when they visit. They have always enjoyed their previous stays, but the last time around, they forgot a few items of my dad's clothing in the closet when they left. We found out the Westin's customer service is certainly lacking when it comes to retrieving lost items. I called later in... More

We made special request while booking the Westin Alexandria on-line: room on a higher floor and late arrival (1 AM) which were acknowledged by the staff. On the hotel's website the text box for Special Request only accepts one short sentence - you have to get crafty to leave more than on request there. The sound insulation: we have clearly... More

We had three stays here over a seven-week period. Initially we stayed on a Friends and Family rate, but we later switched to a government rate as we got reimbursed for part of the time. And the government rate was the maximum that I would pay for the hotel. The rooms are nice and always clean, the beds are very... More

The walls are very very thin. We heard our neighbors watching TV and other activities. Accommodations are comfortable, but the location is a little out of the way. The metro is only about a 5 to 10 minute walk and it's about a 15 minute walk into Olde Town. Decor is modern and clean, but a little bland. Not a... More

What you expect from a Westin Hotel. Very business friendly with professional staff, comfortable rooms. Nice workout room.Several of the conference meeting rooms have excellent views. Our one complaint was that the restaurant and bar had a hard close at 2 for lunch then 11 in the evening--this was a challenge for people who arrived at odd times as there... More

After unsuccessfully trying to book a room in DC, we decided to stay in Alexandria for a better deal on a room. The Westin Alexandria was a great choice for our trip. It's in a new development and the building itself seems to be almost brand new. The room is what I've come to expect from a Westin. Large, nicely-appointed,... More

I've commented in other reviews on this site that hotels in the DC area are often very overpriced. So for this week-long trip I tried staying outside the District, and overall, it was a good experience. The Westin is almost new, and it must be said the beds are exceptional. It's also only a short walk to the King St... More

I'll preface this review with the fact that I sleep very lightly when I stay in hotels, so the 'noise' factor may not be an issue for you. I was kept awake most of the night by the sound of the elevator running up and down. At first I couldn't figure out what the noise was - thinking it was... More

The hotel is located in Courthouse square which is a modern, clean, and safe area. The only issue is that it is dead on weekends and most coffee shops were closed. It is a 10 minute safe walk to old town and a 5 minute walk to the train station. this worked great for our family. They do charge for... More
