We had about 30 guests and ourselves stay at the Westin - our corner suite was quite nice and everyone loved their rooms. Staff was great, attached restaurant was good and other restaurants in walking distance. We used for getting ready, hanging out, photos before the wedding and guests. My two complaints are parking fees are quite high and that...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 February 2017

I stayed here for a couple of nights and a quick get away back in October. The hotel is clean and staff are courteous. Located right next to the Patent office, about 10 minutes walk to WholeFood, and 10 minutes walk to Old Town and the Metro station. For the DC area, this is a very nice hotel. Not sure...

We enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious (bathroom a little small), the bed and daybed both beautifully comfy, and we had brilliant views out to the Masonic memorial. The hotel is situated in a quiet area- there didn't seem to be much nearby in terms of shops/restaurants, so better as a base to go elsewhere. About a ten minute...

Was excited to stay at the Westin in Alexandria the day before my wedding. Had first class service when I arrived. I wish I could have had the same experience the next day. I went to the lobby asking the luggage assistant if someone could get me a luggage cart because I needed help bringing down my suitcase and wedding...

This is a great hotel. A beautiful area of Alexandria, surrounded by tall buildings and across from the beautiful courthouse building. The rooms were clean and elegant and the staff helpful. The area has some great restaurants: Sweet Fire Donnas (great BBQ), Pasara Thai (wonderful food). Just a short jaunt to the Metro and Free Trolly that takes you up...

Inventors take note: this hotel is about a block from the U.S Patent Office and its corresponding museum, which is a fascinating place to visit. It's also right across from the Carlyle Club, so is the perfect place to stay if you're going, as we did, to a wedding or event at the Carlyle. The hotel restaurant was great at...

We just got back from a week at Westin Alexandria. Me and my husband were visiting a friend and decided to book at the Westing due to them typically being a great brand and the hotel having a pool and hot tub. We got to the Hotel at 1:30pm, a little earlier than check-in. The lady at the front checked...

We were at the Westin while in the area for the Women's March on Washington. It was very comfortable and the room was great, very comfortable and quiet. The onsite restaurant was quite good and we were delighted that the staff made us an early breakfast, before open hours, so we could get to the March!

This hotel is very nice, clean, and has a friendly staff. The rooms were clean and there is a mini fridge in the room. The hotel has an onsite restaurant that is reasonably priced and has very good food. It is also within walking distance of other restaurants. The metro station is three blocks from the hotel, but they are...
