The location is great - plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Also, the Ballston metro stop is basically right around the counter. Loved the fact that there's a full service Starbucks in the lobby. This is my second stay here.

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times over the last decade, and it's somewhat timeless. The staff is always excellent, and I actually looking forward to visiting the DC (not one of my favorite areas in the world) area because of this hotel. When I checked in this past Friday, Holly (the desk clerk) utterly cracked me up. She was... More

First stay at the Westin. All the normal Westin creature comforts. Rooms were a good size and very clean. I don't love the rain shower head but the shower was otherwise good. Mango ginger water at check in was really nice. Good location near Ballston metro station.

I spent a night at the Westin while visiting NSF. The location is very convenient, just a couple of blocks from Ballston metro. Excellent service, wonderful bed, unusually good shower. Convenient Starbucks in the lobby, and a decent sized fridge in the room. I would be happy to stay again.
