I generally stick with Hilton brands, so I was looking forward to this experience at a Westin. First off, the location is not as convenient as some others in Alexandria, which means, you might need access to the car more often. Herein lies the first problem, because we had nothing but bad experiences with the valets, such as calling down...

I have stayed at this hotel many times, with no serious issues. This time, check-in was not great, the representative could not find my reservation, nor did she recognize my SPG Gold Level status or as a SPG Member at all. Hotel closed their pool at beginning of year. The area is beautiful; room view was great. This is one...

I am to the point now in my travels where every time I stay at a Westin, I am happy and every time I stay at a different hotel chain, I am disappointed. I recently stayed at the Alexandria Westin with my wife while she was in town for business. I was VERY happy with the service. Like all Westins,...

We were in Alexandria for a small family get together. We were attracted to the hotel by the cheap rate on the weekend. I thought the deal was too good to be true, but wasn't. Hotel was very clean in a nice quiet section of town. Rooms were nice and clean, with complimentary coffee. We took our 13 yr old...

We enjoyed our stay at the Westin. No real complaints. It was a bit annoying they could not easily credit me for my Marriott points yet. Here is the thing, though...if you are planning on doing a lot of sight seeing in DC, the Yellow Line Metro is what people use. It's a22 minute ride but you could be waiting...

Dear 2kils, Thanks for staying with us and taking the time to share these comments. I was glad to see that you enjoyed your stay in the hotel. I did note however that the location did not work well for you and I am sorry to hear that. Generally, we are considered convenient to DC given our proximity to metro....

When I recently attended a weekend festival hosted at the Westin, I was excited to take advantage of a special group rate (which I found out later was the same price available on any of the popular travel sites) and enjoy what I expected to be 4-star or better accommodations. So despite living within easy driving distance, I decided to...

Dear Susan M, Thank you for choosing to stay with us last weekend for the Interfusion Festival. In reading your comments, it is clear that your stay was far from enjoyable and I would like to extend my sincere apologies. I will admit that we were overwhelmed at times this past weekend with the size of the crowd that attended...

Enjoyed my stay here, it's a very new and clean. Bathroom excellent, closet roomy, bed very very comfortable, curtains easy to operate and high quality. Like the bonus points for declining maid service. And thank you Westin for always having coffee makers! It's amazing that some of the high end chains think coffee should only be ordered with room service,...

To begin with, everything about this hotel is what one expects of a Westin --- classy, clean, exceedingly comfortable, with all the amenities of home. What may a bit different is that this hotel, located across from the courthouse, is actually in a rather quiet cul-de-sac, just a block or two away from the heavily trafficked thoroughfares of Olde Towne...

I stayed here for a couple of nights and a quick get away back in October. The hotel is clean and staff are courteous. Located right next to the Patent office, about 10 minutes walk to WholeFood, and 10 minutes walk to Old Town and the Metro station. For the DC area, this is a very nice hotel. Not sure...
