Overview

Centrally located near shops, restaurants and attractions
Some recent guests say facilities aren't up to 4-star standards
Sitting along the Maryland side of the Potomac River at the Washington National Harbor complex (about 10 miles south of D.C.), the Westin Washington National Harbor offers guests a more relaxing stay than they would find at a hotel in the bustling city. While it may not be as glamorous as its neighbor, the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center, the Westin makes as an excellent choice for business travelers looking to avoid the family-friendly kitsch factor. The hotel also serves as a popular convention spot, with an on-site business center that makes meeting deadlines easy. Plus, guests say that the pool, fitness center and contemporary Sauciety American Grill are great for unwinding after a long day. When you're ready to turn in, you'll find your accommodations appointed with amenities like Westin's signature Heavenly bath and bed products and sleek flat-screen TVs. Plus, Fido will be happy to snooze on his Westin's custom Heavenly dog bed. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
