We travel a lot and, admittedly, we are hotel "snobs". Having said that, however, we know what it's like to stay in a truly nice hotel (i.e., another Starwood property in Los Angeles). While our 6-night stay at The Westin was pleasurable, it could have been nicer.
The Good: very convenient to Metro and easy-to-get-to DC location, great views from and variety of breakfast/snack offerings in the Concierge Lounge, wonderful bed and linens, fabulous multi-shower head (waterfall), clean and well-maintained premises, on-site lobby Starbucks, personable staff
The Somewhat Bad: our concierge room was quite small and minus a refrigerator, Concierge in lobby tried to be helpful but was clueless about some common questions (he didn't know what bluefish is???), breakfast offerings in Concierge Lounge often not available because they were not replenished regularly, computer printer in Concierge lounge very difficult to understand (and I'm an IT geek), very limited channel offerings on Direct TV in room
The ugly: overpriced
