We had a tough choice for our Saturday night stay in DC. Stay close to Dupont Circle where we were to have dinner or stay in Arlington at a newer, cleaner quieter location 6 miles away. We chose well as catching the Metro at the Ballston station just two blocks away was easy. The hotel was clean, quiet and the... More

Very reasonably priced for its nightly rate, large comfortable beds and rooms, not noisy at all. About a 5-7 min walk to the Ballston metro (a bit confusing to find though since you go through the middle of garden/mini park to get there). So very easy access to DC. A few restaurants across the street -- the Montana place was... More

Came in late (midnight) this evening. The room - on the 3rd floor - was noisy from the traffic outside, so had to turn on the fan, which made the room uncontrollably cold. Everything was closed so ordered room service. Ordered the only thing reasonably vegetarian was a BLT sandwich with no bacon, and cheese added. The order showed up... More

I sincerely apologize for the traffic noise, room temperature, and quality of your room service meal during your stay, and appreciate you providing us with this feedback. This experience does not represent the service we are capable of delivering to our guests on a daily basis, and so we’re working to revise and improve our entire in room dining menu.... More

The staff are excellent and it was nice to go to the cemetery from there. Also close to hennies, some decent steak and there was a few decent local beers on tap. Would go back for sure as we usually hold this conference in downtown DC, so this saved us quite a bit of cash while still being great...

It had been a while since I've stayed at a Westin, so I was glad to have the opportunity to stay at this one. Convenient to the Ballston metro, a guest witnesses the city vibe of the area but can easily see a touch of suburbia is within reach with private residences located on the other side of Glebe Road....

Nice hotel good amenities and services. close to several restaurants and was able to walk from the Metro station which was only 2 blocks away. No need for a cab to National airport. Starbucks is inside the hotel. Poll closed at 10 and had a lifeguard when it was open.

We stayed here for a wedding in DC that was a 20 minute drive. The hotel lobby and room were somewhat clean and the valet service was super fast and efficient. Overall, the stay was fine - however, for a Westin I really expected a lot more. In our room, the hardware in the tub for the towel holder was... More

I write this review from my hotel room at the Westin. I have stayed here many times and the service is excellent. Today, I had to check in very early in the morning and they still managed to get me a room without any hint of a complaint. Now that is service! The room I have is very spacious and,... More

This was our second stay at this hotel when visiting Washington, D.C. It is a very short walk to the Metro. There are stores, restaurants, bars all within a short walking distance.
