Despite some of the less stellar reviews, my experience was all good. Helpful/courteous staff, convenient location and very large / comfortable rooms. I did not have a car..of course, it is D.C. and parking is always a premium and will cost you. Far easier to walk, train, Uber or a combo of all. I love this historical part of the...

So, kids, you want to run your own hotel, but need tips on how to squeeze every dime out of your guests? Here are some ideas to consider, courtesy of the Westin chain: 1. When guests fall into your "brunch" trap, charge $15 for an egg-white omelet.But, make it out of the smallest eggs you can get your hands on....

This feedback is much appreciated and I want to extend my apologies for how you were made to feel as a result of some of the items that your were charged for.

Very happy with customer service. They went out of their way for me. But that said, every time I come here there is a problem with the keycards requiring rekeying immediately after arrival and then again later in the stay. This time the robe was off white (yellowing) and had so much pilling that I took a picture. Also the...

for starters, as a SPG member, check-in was flawless and was able to go right to my room despite being early. The Trademark Bar has excellent bartenders and a wide selection of just about anything most people drink. Food is good too. US patent and trademark office is down the road, so historic items found in the Trademark bar. Alexandria...

Hotel staff were very nice and helpful. Room was clean and adequate for the stay. Hotel itself is a bit isolated but they have regular shuttles to metro and downtown Alexandria. Parking is somewhat pricey but expected in Norva. Would visit again.

I booked this hotel because it was the best value in Starwood points for the weekend we were visiting DC. I worried that it would be difficult to get to public transportation from this location. It's probably four blocks or less from the King Street Station, giving your access to everything, including the free bus to Old Town Alexandria. The...

Several of us attended a wedding in town this past weekend. The Westin is very nice, and well kept. But their automated systems are TERRIBLE!! They are part of the Starwood network, but they have their own reservation system. I booked 3 rooms and had 5 confirmation numbers!! Then, after checking out, they debited my credit card twice until the...
