“3 day weekend in D.C.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This was a beautiful hotel, conveniently located and the staff was marvelous! We were treated wonderfully and our room was lovely and so comfortable. The whole experience at the hotel made for a wonderful weeken. The ambassador and the concierge were excellent. We were made to feel very special by everyone. I highly recommend it and look forward to returning for another visit.

All in all the property is nice. The rooms are comfortable and the bathroom spacious. Toiletries are included, as is a robe. However, my complaint with this property is that for the price I paid for the room for 5 nights, I felt that nothing extra was included. The room had no wi-fi (wi-fi only in the lobby), there was no breakfast, and out-going calls were ridiculously priced. I paid $7 for a one minute long distance call.

Room Tip: There is a fire station across the street on the M street side. Guests should avoid rooms on this s...

We've stayed in Westin's around the continent and we've yet to find a real problem with any Westin.

The Westin Hotel, Georgetown is a good hotel with quality service. The Restaurant is top notch (see other review) and my wife and I gladly had drinks, dinner and dessert with no hesitation.

The rooms are clean and there were no issues with housekeeping. We had a problem with the air conditioning. I think, and I could be wrong, but because of the policy in this hotel of not being able to open the windows, with the fact that their green policy shuts down the AC when not in the room, this can lead to a mustiness in the room. Add to fact that when they clean the bathrooms and then leave, you get humidity trapped in the room. We did have to change rooms because of the mustiness. The second room was better, but I had to leave the room key in the electricity activator to keep the mustiness at bay.

All things considered though, the hotel was worth the cost, conveniently located, and provided for a good vantage point for exploring the city. We drove in, and it was not difficult to reach the hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room that is used frequently.

Dear Guest Mongolovestogo,

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback about your stay. We are pleased that you enjoyed the Restaurant and consider it to be "top notch". Our hotel rooms are controlled by a new innovative Energy system call "Evolve". It controls temperature, lighting and on / off schedules which have allowed us to reduce our energy footprint. I will pass on your information to our Engineering team to re-evalute the settings. All our bathroom include a ventilation system that extracts moisture and to create air flow. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again at a Westin Hotel. Take Care.

We stayed here one weekend night in October and found this hotel has a lot going for it. We were upgraded without asking into one of their exercise rooms. It had weights an exercise bike and yoga equipment as well as exercise videos so you could have a nice workout in your own room. The room was oversized so even with all of the equipment there was plenty of room.

It had everything you would expect at a Westin, accomodating staff, clean updated facilities and a nice/bar restaurant in the basement. We had breakfast there and it was quite good and considering everything pretty reasonably priced too.

Now for the location, it is convenient approximately equal distance to Foggy Bottom, DuPont Circle and Georgetown. But in spite of being in the middle of everything or perhaps because of it, it is pretty dead in the area right around the hotel. We walked around looking for a nice neighborhood restaurant and didn't find one we liked until we had walked all the way to Dupont Circle. So if you're thinking you can stay here and just step out of the hotel for a quick meal and drink it's not going to happen.

Still a nice Westin and I would reccomend it

Room Tip: Ask for the free exercise room upgrade

I booked this hotel by accident, I meant to book the Westin in the city. If like us you want a super-central location this probably isn't for you.
However I'm happy we landed here although a fair old walk in to the mall we enjoyed seeing a side to Washington we hadn't discovered before and foggy bottom night life.
The hotel itself has some great facilities and the service is excellent very friendly, the gym had good and plentiful equipment, great coffee shop across the road and wonderful bagel store around the corner.
Excellent stay and wonderful value

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Westin Georgetown. We stayed in a variety of places in the States and Europe during our recent trip away and this hotel was one of the better "value for money" places we stayed.

The rooms were clean and modern (comfy bed, great bathroom), and the staff we encountered were all friendly and helpful. The hotel was easy to get to: we flew into DCA then caught the Metro to Foggy Bottom and walked 5-10 minutes up the road to the hotel, which was an easy walk (with 2 large suitcases) and perhaps the only tricky part was crossing Washington Circle. We left DC on Amtrak and simply caught the bus from opposite Foggy Bottom Metro (there is another bus which picks you up closer I believe but it wasn't running when we left early in the morning). Easy!

The only downside for me about the hotel was the lack of free wi-fi.

Overall DC is a great city - the Smithsonian museums are all free and one of our highlights was biking around this fabulous city using the Capital Bikeshare bikes. As others have mentioned, this hotel isn't actually in Georgetown but Georgetown was so easy to get to using the bikeshare bikes (and definitely worth a visit). Another great find for us was Devon & Blakely which was a place that had inexpensive, healthy and delicious food (soups and salads etc.), just down the street near Washington Circle.

My wife and I decided to spend the night in DC in the Georgetown area and what better place to stay than the Westin. A few things I liked about the hotel:
1. Proximity to historic downtown: About a 5min walk to all the stores
2. Dupont Circle: Its about a 10-15 min walk to the hotel and lots of places to eat around there
3. Rooms: as all Westin hotels, excellent with the heavenly bed so comfy. Great night sleep.
4. Service: Friendly staff, courteous desk staff too.

Only bad part: parking is $34/ night, very expensive so if you can avoid driving there or find another parking spot around do that.

Other than that, it was an awesome stay totally worth it and highly reccomended.
