The Westin Alexandria

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is a great location for what we had planned. Walking distance to the metro. The hotel is quiet and there is a good restaurant- we only went there for breakfast but it was good and the service was excellent!

Overall it was great. The only drawback was the shuttle did not go further then 1.5 miles from the hotel so we had to find our own transportation.

The tub is pretty much useless. Long walk to the metro but still convenient. Excellent dinner at the restaurant. Superb tasting food. Great chef.

Beautiful hotel in great Northern VA location near interstate, 15 min from DC

They need a lot of help I wrote all this before in a previous review Stephen likes knowledge I had called ahead to change the reservation and I got there and they didn't do it We waited while they fix that The restaurant was very convenient and very hospitable It did not live up to a luxury hotel

The dining room is excellent. A table with a messed tablecloth stayed by the elevator for four days. I finally reported it. The water I the bathtub was extremely slow. The staff was very pleasant. I called a week ahead to straighten out our reservations. It did not happen we did it upon arrival. The outside staff were super obliging.

We have stayed at the hotel before and really liked it. This time it was very disappointing. The room was dirty: the mattress was dirty, room was dusty deep enough to write in it, floor was dirty around edge of carpet, bed cover was dirty, maid left no shampoo the second night. Valet parking was slow. Telephone had a red flashing light that could not be turned off. We had people call us at the hotel but never received the message they left. We were coming and going throughout the day but parking in the area was a nightmare, and the entrance parking was always full. Very disappointing and we will not stay there again.

We visited our family in Alexandria. The Westin is the perfect location. The staff is always friendly and courteous. We have stayed there 3 times in the last 3 months and each time has been great.

We stay for 11 nights but for example when we arrives - the room smell cigarette the hotel change us for other room then- air conditioning was off then they fixed it. Then the water on the tub was too cold or too hot. Somebody come and fixed it. I do not feel like vacations really. But not all is bad. We have to say that Joyce on restaurant and Solomon on the hotel bus do the extra mile on their work. We wish that the manager call us and sayed ok for all the inconveniences and because you have 3 rooms we will gives you and upgrade. But nobody cares. I am sorry ! But we are telling you-100true. We expent a lot of money in the hotel but we do not want to be back. Thanks.

I really enjoyed myself. A very relaxing stay. Valet parking was nice.

I went to visit my old roomate in DC and also my sister and brother in law in MD. Close access to the train and highway, with many food options near by. The staff was very polite and welcoming. They were always happy to answer my questions about the area.

Great drinks at bar great customer service initially hairs on bed rust in shower low water pressure expired code dirty dresser slow service second day forgot to bring car around overcharged for parking

Comfortable well appointed room, nice staff and quick car valet service.

We booked this hotel stay while we were in town to see a football game. Was a wonderful hotel and a wonderful experience. Would recommend to anyone.

I had an absolutely wonderful time in the VA area for the New Year's Eve.

The hotel is nice. Restraunt ok. Location good. Staff very nice

The Westin Alexandria was a nice hotel. The staff was friendly, and it was located within a reasonable walk from the King Street Metro, which made it convenient for touring DC. The only complaints I have are that parking is $26/day, so we decided to park in a garage a few blocks away for $7/day, which was slightly inconvenient. Also, the only nearby option for getting snacks, drinks, etc. was the hotel gift shop (with a $10 minimum debit card charge) or the hotel restaurant, both overpriced. Would recommend bringing snacks and drinks to keep in the room. Overall, the hotel was a pretty good choice for our weekend in DC.

Everything was fine, it's not really downtown old town. There is a shuttle that's free. Everybody seemed friendly. Overall, good experience.

Very clean hotel close to the Metro. Staff is great.

Had a great time here, rooms were very clean, the staff was outstanding, I WILL be coming back. They shuttle you to the metro, let you checkout of the room but able to leave your luggage with the concierge. This was a great experience
