Guests praise the hotel's free shuttle service and well-appointed rooms
Some cite service and Wi-Fi issues
The Westin Alexandria's indoor pool caters to families and leisure travelers, while its business center and on-site meeting facilities make it a great choice for business travelers, too. Although some guests note that the hotel's somewhat remote location – a half-mile walk to the King Street and Eisenhower Avenue metro stations – is a downside for sightseers, others say the complimentary shuttle along with the affordable room rates and hospitable staff more than compensate for this slight drawback. The Westin Alexandria also offers Trademark Drink and Eat, a modern restaurant and bar that serves up American fare and craft cocktails. The biggest complaints for recent guests were the slow Wi-Fi service and the poor front desk and housekeeping service, but on a better note, past visitors enjoyed the signature Westin amenities, including custom Heavenly Beds and 32-inch flat-screen TVs. Plus if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, you can earn freebies by choosing to stay here.

Opposite the U.S. Courthouse in the Carlyle development of Old Town, this full-service hotel offers upscale public areas and well-appointed guest rooms. Each room is equipped with a flat-panel TV, large work desk, comfortable chair and upgraded bedding.
