The hotel has been recently renovated and is in excellent condition. Our room was spotless, very comfortable and the housekeeping staff kept it that way. Staff in the lobby was very friendly and helpful. Ranjit was particularly helpful, answering all of our questions, providing information about the local area and generally making sure our stay was enjoyable. The hotel is... More

This hotel is awesome!!!!!! Nicole at the front desk is fantastic! The rooms are newly renovated, clean and spacious The only downfall is trying to find the front of the hotel - it was super confusing since the door is on Eads Street. Great hotel, great location and just across the Potomac from DC. Come to this hotel!

Apparently, this hotel has just become a Westin a week ago (was previously a Sheraton). While they were still working out a few kinks in the transition, it was still very much a Westin experience. Service was stellar and all of the staff very attentive. In particular, there was a young lady from the Ukraine who worked in the restaurant.... More

The hotel is brand new and opened August 22 2014. (From the fact that there are prior reviews I assume this has been a re-do of the prior hotel). So everything is brand new and super clean. The rooms especially the showers are really nice. The staff was super friendly and enthusiastic, even at 1am when I arrived. Thanks to... More

They just re-opened as the Westin and this place looks great. They are still getting everything in perfect working condition but the staff was incredible. Thanks Ranjit, Sami and Liz. Everyone took the time to say hello and ask if I needed anything. Rooms have been re-done - look great - very comfortable bed.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March. The hotel is in a excellent location, walking distance to the metro, and the staff is very nice and courteous. Even though it was busy the check-in was quick. My only complain is the standard if the rooms. Pretty much I did not feel as if I was saying at Starwood property--felt... More

This was my first visit to Crystal City and staying at the Sheraton.Kudos to all the staff who work here, especially Ariel, Ravjit and one of the male bar/lounge attendants(don't recall his name but was working evening March 18 and March 20th). They were very nice, attentive and made a point to speak and ensure your visit was going well.... More

The hotel had a very good gym room, was very near to the metro station. It's a big name hotel and it met all of my expectations. The metro makes is easy to get into the District quickly. I had a great experience interacted with the staffs there.

My stay at this Sheraton was amazing. I drove in PA was a little thrown off and in a bad mood because of the drive, and the fact that there was a major detour with no signage which made my drive longer. My attitude changed as soon as I met Ranjit at the front desk of the Sheraton. He literally... More
