Nice hotel that is close to everything!

Pros: Cleanliness, smelled fresh, fast elevators, friendly staff, location, heated indoor pool
Location: Many restaurants, Ballston Commons Mall, pharmacy, food trucks, bus station, Metro station - great location!
We love the Westin and have stayed at this location once before although it was 8 years ago. The moment you open the door, you are welcomed with the most pleasant smells. I assume this is their signature White Tea Aloe fragrance, but it is so inviting. We got to the hotel at 1pm and was given early check-in. The room had 2-double beds, a flat screen tv, refrigerator, desk with chair and a stationary chair. Everything was clean. We were glad to see a free bottle of water and the housekeepers gave us two extra when they saw our family of four. They also gave us extra washcloths as well. The pool area was nice and well-kept. My children (9 & 5) were disappointed when they could not get into the hot tub with their dad due to the age restriction of 16+. On our last day, we had a US Capitol tour that morning so we checked out at 8am. They were gracious enough to keep our luggage until we came back for it on our way to Reagan National at 2pm. The location is fantastic with several restaurants, a mall, pharmacy and the Metro station within walking distance. This hotel will be our hotel of choice when visiting Washington, DC.

Great hotel and service but parking expensive

Pros: Great service. We got room on 4th floor which did not have good view so we asked to swtich and the staff was very cooperative and let us change room
Cons: Mention that there is no self parking and you have to pay $30 per night, which adds up substantially when you have to be there four nights.
Location: Lot of restaurants and easy access to Metro station to go to DC national mall area
We were family of 4 with 2 kids. We liked the hotel a lot. It is close to many restaurants and Metro train station. Easy drive to National Mall area. One thing I was surprised was that we had to pay for Valet parking at $30 per day which was not what we were expecting. There is no self service option unless you want to park on roads on in public garage. The staff was very friendly and stay was great so in all we really enjoyed our time.

Great stay! Great Experience!

This hotel was awesome, from check-in to check-out! They showed excellent customer service from the very moment I pulled up out front until the time I left. The room was super clean and modern, as well as comfortable. I will definately stay here again the next time I am in the area!

Nice but not terribly well-managed

The hotel is nice enough for the price - the rooms are well-furnished and comfortable.  The staff was very nice but not always terribly "on top" of things.  Check in at 2:30 in the morning took nearly 20 minutes.  The valet misplaced my car because there was a mix-up with the claim check that was given to me.  My hallway was also host to 4 rooms of teenage girls who were running up and down the halls and slamming doors well into the early morning - despite my calls to management and mentioning it at check-out the response I received was an "oh well" and a sorry but kids will be kids.  Any one of these things alone would be an annoyance - together and in the absence of any real effort by the hotel to remedy them painted the hotel as being less than concerned about guest satisfaction.

Would not stay at this hotel again. The location was perfect, but this hotel is not for me.
