I was here for a conference and the quality of the staff was noticeable. The rooms were well attended to and comfortable. The fitness room was very good but the indoor pool was small. Good property.would go again.

Stayed here several nights while on business and everything was lovely. Rooms are generously proportioned and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent. Plenty of restaurants and bars near by....close to public transportation and Old Town. Nice restaurant/bar onsite as well.

Worst hotel establishment ever. Long story short: This hotel placed charges on my account that didn't belong to me. They belonged to the individuals staying in the room before me. Once I told them about it, never did they honestly apologize. Instead, they made a monument of excuses as to how and why it happened (I checked in too early)...

Dear Juriel, Thank you for staying with us recently and taking the time to share these comments. I would like to extend my sincere apologies for your experience and the poor way we handled this. A mistake was made in placing the charges on your account when in fact they were from the previous guest. When you brought this to...

The Starwood hotels as always have great bedding. We have been on a 7 day road trip and staying at some Marriott hotels. Definitely like the SPG hotels better. Maybe with the new merger Marriott will improve. Easy check in. Comfortable room. Will stay here again.

I stayed on business at the Westin. The room was very nice and beds were comfortable. Convenient to many good resturants and metro is 4 or 5 blocks away. Overall nice. You must use the valet parking but they were always fast and accomodating.

Great location; quick walk to the King street metro and old town Alexandria along with easy access to the 495. Plenty of places to eat also in the area.

I booked this hotel for 5 days in June to sightsee around the Washington area. I had really struggled to find hotels in our price range, as everything in Washington was so expensive (well over £200 a night). Alexandria seemed like a great option as it was only a short metro ride away, and The Westin was one of the...

All I can say is Michelle saved us from a miserable experience. Some sort of major event going on in DC and every hotel within a 50 mile radius was booked solid. Called platinum concierge for Starwood and he called multiple SPG properties and no one could help. Michelle was kind enough to save the last room they had but...

Had a great stay at this hotel. Spent a Memorial weekend at Westin Alexandria. It was very crowded. However, the hotel is clean and new looking. Breakfast has many selections and food was great. PROS: - Clean - Helpful Staff - Great breakfast CONS: - Small and milky swimming pool - Valet Parking Charge is high
