“Great place to rest your head!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We recently stayed here on a business/pleasure trip, it was wonderful!!! The staff is all very helpful and friendly. The location is close to Old Alexandria with tons of restuarants and shopping. With the refrigerator in the room, we were able to buy breakfast and snacks/water at the very close Whole Foods and eat in our room. And the Starbucks just two doors down was very handy.

The beds are very cozy, the towels clean and fluffy and the rain showerhead is relaxing.

The King St. Metro station is a 7 minute walk and will take you anywhere you need to go in D.C. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room the faces the courthouse, otherwise it's an alley view.

This hotel is in a great location, its modern, clean and a great value as I booked through Priceline and got an $80 rate. The staff was friendly enough and check in and out were both easy. My only criticism is that they charge $9.95/day for wifi. The fitness center is very nice as well.

The hotel is in a wonderful and convenient location. Although it was just a quick overnight and I booked the room on an online travel site, the check-in was seamless and the front desk agent extremely curtious. Our room was nicely appointed and spotless. Since we were traveling in January, the weather was not ideal for walking around but you could have easily walked to the movie theatres and an area with several restaurants. If you do have a car, the only parking available is valet for $26 a day. It was convenient and the car was promptly brought to us but be aware of the charge.We were fortunate to have booked a room on the club floor which included a continental breakfast. We traveled over a weekend so the club floor was not open for breakfast so our vouchers provided us with a full breakfast off the menu in their restaurant. The menu selection was fabulous and the food very good. I loved the individual pot of coffee on your table! When our table was a bit wobbly, two servers (not even our own) were immediately there to assist and get it leveled. Job well done to all the staff from valet, front desk, housekeeping and restaurant!

I stayed here for one night in January. The hotel is relaxing and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a shuttle that takes you to/from the King St. Metro stop (two stops from Reagan National Airport) and it is right by the USPTO. Trademark, the restaurant downstairs was pretty good too. Good place to stay!

I mistakenly thought I had reservations at the Westin Alexandria January 18-24, 2013.I would like to commend 2 individuals, Sara and Ronald, for their outstanding attention to my needs.Their professionalism and courtesy makes me glad that I am a Starwood Preferred member, and it has made Westin my hotel of choice.

You expect a certain something when you stay at a Westin, and this one has it all ! What sets this above all others for me is the staff. The Front Desk staff is exactly what you want at the end of a long hectic day. They are Customer Service Stars !!

We stayed 2 nights to be closer in the DC for the Inauguration, the hotel was full and very busy, but the service was still superb.

Ronald at the Front Desk was amazing !

A two night business trip for my son, but a great gettaway for me. I helped my son drive to Alexandria just as a backup driver on a 10 hour trip. While he took care of his business. I lounged and ate at the hotel restaurant. The weather was cloudy and rainy and I spent the entire time in the hotel. It was wonderful. Very comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, and we had booked the room with full breakfast each day and there in was the best deal! The food was quite good and the service very friendly. Its was quiet and I felt very comfortable eating alone.

The only minus would be if you wanted to be in the mix of Alexandria and King Street, It would be a bit of a walk which, in good weather might be quite pleasant. I didn't feel like exploring, again, because of the weather.

This is the perfect place to stay if you have dealing with the US Patent and Trademark office, its only a short walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: If you require complete silence to sleep, make sure you need a room away from the train noise.
