We used the Westin Alexandria for easy acess to a wedding/reception but also for an extended week-end of site-seeing in Washington D.C. and Virginia. Once we parked our car at the hotel, we never needed to use it again. The hotel was close to train/bus transportation. Also, the hotel's shuttle bus got us to many sites of interest/restaurants in the... More

We were very pleased with the Westin Alexandria. Though I don't believe the previous reviewer is correct in that the Westin is only 5 years old (the interior design of both the hallways and actual rooms are a bit tired though certainly not old) the lobby area is open and airy. The Westin has borrowed from Kimpton, I think, piping... More

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times for work, most recently in September 2012. Overall, it is a very solid hotel. It's very new (less than 5 years old) and modern, but not too overly trendy and not at all pretentious like some modern hotels can be. It is located about a 4-block walk from the King Street Metro. You... More

This is a hotel where everything seems to have a charge and the service / ammenities aren't up to the Westin reputation. Paid $26 for our car to sit in their garage for 24hrs. Close to Metro station and inexpensive to go into Washington DC for a soccer game. Bar closed at 11 PM on a Sat, so we had... More

I recently had a four night stay at the Westin Alexandria. Clean, comfortable and very friendly. Staff were great. Restaurant had just reopened and food was very very good and service excellent. Close to Starbucks, Whole Foods and metro. The only confusion was related to the shuttle. We figured it out the last day but wish we had pursued the... More

Stayed here one night. Check in was very efficient and helpful when we asked for directions to a couple of places. Bed was super comfortable, liked the bathroom toiletries. Parked on the street to avoid parking fee and didn't utilize restaurant or room service. Had a view of a roof and agree with previous posters that wifi should absolutely be... More

A solid entry in the new-generation of recently opened Westins in the broader DC metro area (Arlington, Dulles, Alexandria, Richmond and Annapolis). The area is a bit business heavy (starbucks didn't open until 7am on Sunday?!), but a Whole Foods 2 blocks away and a nearby Metro station, and a better-than-average new Westin layout (great soft lighting, great common area...

The Westin Alexandria made all our wedding dreams come true! Our wedding was everything that I envisioned it to be, and I have the Catering Manager, David Magsumbol, to thank for that. I so enjoyed working with David; he was always professional, attentive, and especially kind. All the members of the Westin team--Agnes, Beth, Jessica, Rachel, Marie, and Guillermo--were truly...

Great hotel, with a great location convenient to King Street Metro and kind staff. The shuttle to Old Town Alexandria is nice, too. They will charge you for anything, though, including maid service (you get a credit to your room if you remember to put out the no-service sign by 2AM) and especially wifi. We'd stay here again, although it... More

We just spent one night at the Westin in Alexandria and we were thrilled! The staff here is amazing. From the desk clerk that made us feel like we had just arrived for a family reunion to the driver of the Westin van that took us down to King st for free. I had a fever and didn't feel well... More
