The room service, Bar, and room are very great, including the fitness. You should definitely count on Josie Castro as your bartender. And the chefs Are the greatest especially Joseph Castro. You should try the chicken and Cheesecake. This is a great hotel.

Visited in February 2015. Very nice hotel with typical features you expect from Westin and Starwood. Great alternative to the Gaylord Convention Center. Corner room with view of National Harbor is the way to go.

First - I'm attempting to book a small two-day business meeting. I've been to this specific Westin for two professional meetings. One that I booked myself, and a second where I was the facilitator for a planning session being held at the hotel. I actually like the hotel's location and the meeting space for a small event. I've also used... More

Thank you for taking the time to explain your situation. Please accept our apology for this oversight. May I suggest you call the hotel directly, during business hours and ask to be connected with the Director of Sales, who can either assist you personally, or pass you along to the correct sales manager who can see to your needs.

This is our third year in a row staying in this hotel for an annual event at the Gaylord Convention Center. We love staying here because it is clean, a two minute walk to the convention center next door, and away from all the hubbub and din of the convention center next door. Plus, their staff is simply AMAZING. The... More

Visited for a business conference at the nearby Gaylord Convention Center. It was a great, less expensive alternative. It is only a short walk to the Gaylord. Westin is a nice chain to begin with and this hotel keeps those standards. Newly renovated clean rooms. Centrally located.

Westin is the perfect location to take in the entire National Harbor experience. Central. There is so much to do here, it's a great place for a weekend even if you live nearby. The water view from here is the best. The restaurant opens directly to the walkway along the water. And from there your options are almost limitless since... More

Great location, just next to the Harbor shops and the Wheel. It was close enough to visit the Gaylord, but not be in the midst of the crowds. Some confusion about their method of going green - it was hands-off housekeeping instead of just not changing the linens and towels. So we had to request extra shampoo and coffee for... More

Easily among the best views from my room in my travels around the world. I stayed at Westin for a conference in Nov 2015 and found it to be a nice quiet place compared to the rush of the convention center. The Hotel faces the harbour front and the large ferris wheel. You get to see planes coming into the... More

We had a wonderful one-night stay at this beautiful hotel. As a Starwood gold member we were upgraded to a waterview room on the top floor --a very nice touch. Our room was clean and spacious and up-to-date; loved the large walk-in shower and nice amenities. There is reasonably priced ($16) parking across the street. Internet access was good as... More

The Westin in National Harbor is in a really good location. The facilities are nice, too. But, they do charge for additional amenities (water in the room, mini-bar, etc.) Additionally, the hotel restaurant was just ok for breakfast.
