We had a very late night arrival on a Sunday night but the staff was warm and welcoming even at the late hour. The next morning Adrian was behind the desk. He answered all our questions, was enthusiastic and we really enjoyed talking with him. He told us that their shuttle could take us where we wanted to go and...

This is an excellent hotel which is very close to the PTO and the PTAB. If you have business at the PTO/PTAB, this is the place to stay. The rooms are updated and modern. The staff is very helpful and the restaurant inside the hotel is good and reasonably priced. Overall, the stay was easy and comfortable so that work...

Westin hotel is a good option in Alexandria. It is located close to the metro station and the The George Washington Masonic National Memorial. If you are lucky (or if you make sure previous your arrival) you can get a room with a great view, directly to the memorial. Rooms are very comfortable, although you can hear very close the...

Dear Deods, Thank you for staying with us. I was glad to know that you enjoyed the hotel and our staff. We do have a lot of very nice view rooms as you mention and I definitely would suggest in the future asking for one overlooking the masonic memorial or Courthouse Square. I would also encourage you to take advantage...

The Westin Alexandria is a remarkable hotel! Each staff member, from the valet, to checking in, to the servers at the on site restaurant....each staff member treats you as if you have just returned home. The rooms are large, modern, and very clean. The showers are amazing! The rooms offer Starbucks coffee, elegant shampoos and soaps, and in room movies...

I recently spent one night at the Westin while visiting the Alexandria area. I arrived by car which I parked in front of the hotel where hotel valet parking is available for $28/night.

Stayed there Aug 1-2nd. Service at the front desk was fast and friendly. There's a free shuttle provided by the hotel that takes you anywhere within 2 miles of the hotel - you can easily get to King St. this way (or walk) without paying the higher prices of the hotels in Old Town. The room (569) was very clean...
