I attended a 12 person meeting in a conference room at this hotel and stayed overnight for 2 nights. The location is convenient to the metro station. The shuttle to access shopping and restaurants further down King Street was convenient as well. The meeting space was very comfortable. The staff were attentive but not over-bearing. The food was great for...

The staff was helpful. The room was very comfortable and cute. There are lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. It's also within walking distance of the metro station. I'd stay here again and again.

This was our third time staying at this hotel for a family reunion during a holiday weekend. It is quiet with a friendly staff. The room was clean with modern furnishings. It is located within walking distance to the King Street Metro for city transportation. They also have a free hotel shuttle we used for quick trips to restaurants and...

The staff and service at this hotel were exceptional and really set the tone for a nice stay. The location near the King Street Metro station (walkable but not across the street) also was a big plus. Couple this with decent shuttle service that will take you to the Metro or most anyplace else in Old Town and it sets...

I stayed here for business, after my colleague and I were finished we checked out and left our bags with the bellman so we could go sightseeing before our flight. I became ill while sightseeing and we returned to the hotel to rest in the lobby and wait for our flight. The bellman gave me a blanket and pillow and...

We took a moderate gamble through Hotwire (choosing non-smoking hotels) and figured this was the hotel we'd get and, sure enough, it was. It's convenient to the Alexandria Amtrak station and the King Street metro station, so we never needed a car. The hotel does have a shuttle but you won't need it unless you're really pressed for time (note:...

Great location. Close to King Street Metro. Nice rooms. Expensive internet, luckily I carry my own wifi hotspot. Room service needs improvement. Not consistent with replacing coffee, water, shampoo, etc.

I have stayed at the Westin Alexandria several times because of work and I was just there for a non-profit board meeting. The hotel is comfortable and well appointed. The staff is helpful and cheerful. The Hotel is a few blocks and slightly uphill from the King Street Metro so walking is not ideal if you have heavy luggage. The...
