“Very Good Hotel for Travel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

National Harbor area has multiple choices for shopping and dining. Great views of the Potomac. Hotel is very clean and well-maintained. Good choice for lodging if you do not want to stay downtown in DC. Be sure to self-park for $11. Would recommend.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Arrived Wednesday July 3 2013. The Westin located within walking distance for all the shops, different variety of food for all types of tastes. Westin is a great hotel for families and also for couples, Steve and MS Green were more than happy to assist in anyway they could. Most days we ate breakfast at the Sauecity inside the hotel price range from $8 - $15 Ms Green restaurant Mgr very accomodating. Steve would also inquire and make sure all our needs were met both were very pleasant. Rooms are nicely kept, spacious and clean. Great hotel for dog owners too, free fireworks on the harbor during our stay for 4th July. Plus free courtesy shuttle for hotel guests to Metro station VA runs every hour OR several tours you can do but a little pricey. Self park 1/2 block away for $11 a day whereas valet parking $35/$42. No one can move betwen floor without room key, which made us feel very safe.

Room Tip: Our room street view, harbor view extra $25 a day.. No need to pay that cost as aqll have access to...

If you haven't spent time at National Harbor you are missing a great part of DC (I know it's Maryland). The Westin provided a fairly comfortable and quiet nights sleep and it's right in the heart of the Harbor area which is simply beautiful. Restaurants of every variety are within walking distance. Sit out by the Harbor and enjoy the view!

Search well to get a good rate. Currently prices for hotels there are expensive.
For families - the Children's Museum is open and walking distance away.
Also, parking is actually affordable - no need to pay for valet at the many of the hotels there.

If you are able to look away from your water view, be sure to check your room. Upon check in, our toilet would not flush and the floor looked as if It had not been vacuumed in weeks. Both issues were resolved promptly but should not have been issues at all when staying at a Westin property. The night staff was quite pleasant and helpful. The young man doing valet in the evening was delightful and refreshing. I believe his name begins with an I. Another positive is the hotel is within walking distance of many shops and restaurants, and watching the sunset from the small beach area was certainly a highlight of our stay. We were in the DC area for vacation and found this to be a very convenient location to many popular tourist spots.

This is a beautiful new Westin in the weird new ghost town on the water in Maryland.

The rooms are very modern in design, everything is of very high quality and the suites on the top floor are huge and fun.

The staff are well trained, sophisticated and helpful.

The hotel is near the Gaylord convention centre and a series of other hotels, shops and restaurants. The lobby and bar space is open and bright, overlooking the water.

The bathrooms and room layout is very close to five star in quality.

Got this hotel for $130 through Priceline. Conveniently located to everything the national harbor has to offer. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly. Had breakfast at Sauciety the next morning which was absolutely delicious

The place is very nice and clean. The location is great and even though there's a nicer hotel next door, this is closer to the restaurants/bars. The issue is the staff. Front desk didn't have a smile or "hello" in 3 days. Staff making up the rooms talked loudly outside my door for well over an hour. Waited at the bar for a deink from 5:20 - 5:40 and didn't see any staff. The place is nice, but they need better people.
