We stayed at the Westin Alexandria for 3 nights while sightseeing in Washington DC. The hotel is conveniently located about a 7 minute walk to the King Street metro station which is really convenient for getting into the city and around to all the sights (easy to use as well). The area the hotel is in is very pleasant and scenic with a couple of cafes and a pub nearby (watch the hours of these as we came home around 10 some nights wanting a drink/snack and these were all closed). The rooms were nicely appointed and very clean. We didn't give a perfect review for a couple of (minor) reasons: first, we stopped in the restaurant on our last day for two cups of tea before leaving and the 2 cups of tea were $8 + tax which we thought was very expensive. The second reason is the fridge in the room was locked and you had to order drinks, etc to the room to have access to it. Staying for a few days, it would have been nice to have the fridge for use to put some fruit, yogurt etc as snacks/breakfast. To be fair, we did not call the desk to ask if we could use the fridge anyways, so I can't really knock them on this too much as I think they would likely have accommodated had we asked. All staff were very friendly and helpful with handling very delayed/late check-ins, restaurant suggestions, phone numbers, and holding our luggage the day of check-out. We would definitely recommend this hotel to others coming to DC and we would certainly stay there again!
