I Approve!

The parking lot was full, so we couldn't park in the lot. We paid $40 to park in a hotel next door. They hooked us up with the $18 breakfast buffet for free though. They also refilled our coffee whenever we needed it. Nice and clean. Nice shower.

The concierge can get you tickets for the Washington Monument - the free tickets come with a fee for that - but we found it well worth our time!

Westin City Center

As expected with a Westin, the rooms were spotless and comfortable. The location of the hotel is not too great, though it is about 4 blocks from the White House. The hotel is in the business district and most restaurants are closed at nights and weekends. The worst thing about the hotel is the price of parking: $40 a day. The hotel only has valet parking, so if you have a car, you have to pay. I will not use this hotel again based solely on the price to park.

Not bad but could have been better.

Toured Washington DC and Mount Vernon. As you would except during the summer, it was a very busy place but still worth it. Only drawback was eating establishments were not near. However, taxi service is plentiful, as was the metro and bus service.

Westin in the DC summer

The time I spent at the Westin was very nice and the best part was that the rooms were able to get nice and cool. This was key as the temps outside were in the high 90's with commensurate humidity. The service was very nice and you're close to a number of good restaurants that you can travel to on foot. I highly recommend it.
