Rooms are clean and spacious, the TV was amazing and bed was really comfy. Reception was also good no complains, the shuttle service was very useful. Stay here as I had a training to attend near by. Breakfast options limited, but manageable. Overall a good and reasonably good hotel.

I stayed at The Westin Alexandria for a business trip but it is an excellent hotel, whether it is for business or pleasure. Location: The hotel is fairly near the King Street Metro station (5-10 minute walk), which allows for access to various points of Washington, D.C. Fairly new is additional public transportation access to National Harbor, MD using bus...

Room and hotel were overall nice. Roll-in shower was good and sloped so as not cause serious flooding.Tthe sink was small with limited surface for toiletries. Towells and wash clothes were on the other side of the room. Bed was somewhat high and therefore a little difficult for me. There was a desk chair and an upholstered chair but neither...

WOW! Great first impression. Had a company event and booked a room to complete the experience. Rate wasn't any higher than lower star chains we've stayed at. Could notice a difference, starting with the front desk staff. Coincidence? I don't know, but I liked it and I took note. Entire hotel and our room was Great! Largest flat screen TV...

The Westin is located in a quiet area of Alexandria away from the touristy areas. The neighborhood is part business, part government, and part residential. The hotel appears to cater more to the business traveler than the leisure traveler. I was there on a weekend and it didn't appear to be very busy at that time. When I arrived, I...

If you are going to the PTO it's convenient but it's very average, small rooms and bathrooms. No taxis waiting. Almost missed my train home. High charge for internet (comped when I complained). Some desk staff friendly and efficient others not so much. Lobby restaurant typically expensive hotel food. Out of the way and not near to much except the...

Only stayed one night but rooms very comfortable and quiet. Ideal place to recover following the trans-Atlantic flight and left me fully rested for a week of business in Washington. Location is also very convenient for DC and only a 30 min drive from Dulles.

I stayed here for a work trip and enjoyed my stay. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The bed is super comfortable and the restaurant downstairs makes a great breakfast! The staff were also friendly and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again if visiting the area.
