We check in, walk upstairs to our room, the key card doesn’t work on our room. I go all the way back down to the front desk & they send an engineer up. The engineer came helped us get into our room thank goodness. Rather than move us to a new room, the engineer said he will get it fixed. That evening I go to the elevator to let my husband up, come back to our room and the key card doesn’t work again. Thank goodness our daughter was still awake and was able to let us into our room. No apologies by front desk no nothing. Then that morning our car is no where to be found. The garage is massive and connected to multiple buildings some of which are closed on weekends. More locked doors near the place our family parked. A few signs may help in the garage to point to Westin parking. I wanted to like this hotel but it reminded me of an escape room. If your claustrophobic or running late- I would’t recommend this hotel. I’m kind of pissed I didn’t put up more of a fuss but literally it killed our trip. Just a whole bunch of issues.

I truly cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The staff (particularly Alex and Justin) were amazing. They were thoughtful, attentive, and made us feel right at home. It was easy to tell that they really cared that we had a pleasant stay. They had a situation with a power outage overnight (which was entirely out of their control - city issue) and they handled it with grace and kindness and did everything they could to make it up to any guests who were staying at the hotel that night. I will definitely be back!

I recently stay at the Westin with my family for a wedding. While traveling these days presents many unique challenges the hotel and staff were up to them. Marc E ,the front office manager, was awesome and helpful with our many requests from room reservation special requests to dinner suggestions. The Westin is located an easy walk to many restaurants that also deliver to the hotel. While I didn't get to the gym most of my family did and loved the equipment including a Peloton. The rooms are spacious and the beds are super comfortable, Overall the hotel and staff are taking all necessary precaution's making a stay here pleasant and reassuring.

This property is pretty good. I was disappointed that breakfast wasn’t included with the price of the rooms being a bit steep. I stayed on a high floor with nice views of Glebe Road. One thing that was rather annoying was the sound of the couple next door engaging in activities that adults do and I had to turn the volume up on the TV to drown it out. Walls are thin! Beware!

Hotel is in an excellent location close to restaurants and metro. We had booked and prepaid for a king room but the room was not available so spent one night in a small room then moved to the room we paid for, which was a hassle. There is no housekeeping during pandemic. There was spillage in the elevators that was not cleaned for 4 days. The room was average but had mold around tub. Staff limited but friendly.
