This hotel is very new, and that is obvious (and a nice feature for me at least). The building is nice and well designed. The room was good although I did have to call a couple of times because house keeping was a little sloppy (didn't bring fresh towels despite the old ones on the floor, left dirty glasses around...

Dear megs, Thanks for staying with us and taking the time to share your comments. I was glad to hear that we are conveniently located to the work you are doing with the Trade Office and Courthouse.

We stayed here for our family trip to the DC area. We had a good experience with all the staff. The hotel is a nice 2-3 block walk to the King Street Metro station. We used the free shuttle to Old Town Alexandria in the evening to go to the local restaurants. We also had late cocktails and snacks at...

I visited this property for a three night stay in mid-July. The hotel is still reasonably new. I bunked here in late 2007 and early 2008 when it had just opened. (Also, full disclosure: I am an SPG Gold level guest, and also a Starwood shareholder.) This was not a perfect stay for me, but I’ll still return. My issues...

The Westin, Alexandria has some work to do. The 3 day experience was filled with ups and downs, but the downs won. The staff is extremely hit and miss - our check-in was terrible, our check-out fine. The first night my husband went to the front desk to let them know that the promised "in-room" safe, was not in our...

I booked this hotel for a stay-cation with my husband on Valentine's Day weekend. The hotel lobby and rooms are very nicely appointed.

I wish I liked this place more because it's a great place for a work conference. I lived in the neighboring suburb of Arlington last year and attended a conference there at the time. Although the valet parking in pricey, it's a really nice place for a conference with better than average conference food/snacks. It always annoys me though when...
