The Westin checks lots of boxes: good location, squeaky clean rooms, spacious bathrooms, workspaces aplenty, and a nice focus on wellness that extends from a menu of superfoods to providing running maps of nearby routes to morning group runs. The interiors are par for the chain hotel course, but rooms are comfy and we love their signature mattresses. While extras like parking and WiFi come at a price, service is thoughtful and you can even rent out a small workspace for meetings or just to get some work done for a couple of hours—a nice alternative to a noisy coffee shop or renting a desk in a co-working space. You can hobnob with Washington insiders over filet mignon at the brasserie, called The Caucus Room, or go more casual at Bóveda, a Latin-inspired speakeasy with killer deals on margaritas at happy hour and tempting small plates like olives and short rib tacos.
In the Area
The White House and a handful of DC’s best museums (the National Academy of Sciences, the Art Museum of the Americas) are within walking distance of the hotel, although political types will appreciate the proximity to K Street. Book a table at Ris in advance; this posh spot does seasonal American dishes like crispy fried okra with bacon and a fab tomato, feta, and watermelon salad while brunch features enticing cocktails like ginger-orange-pineapple-popsicle mimosas. Soi 38 is known for its flavorful, spicy Thai street food along with house-made sodas and draft cocktails. A 15-minute stroll to the Potomac brings you to Farmers Fishers Bakers, an eco-friendly restaurant in a colorful, ‘gram-worthy “urban farmhouse” setting that emphasizes made-from-scratch regional ingredients.
How to Get There
Stayed here for work - 5 nights and couldn't fault it. Great location with walking distance to Georgetown, staff were superb, room clean and comfortable. Only niggle is there isn't anything close by for dinner unless you are comfortable walking the blocks at night, I was a solo traveler and not comfortable to walk that far at night. Avoid the Boveda - staff were rude and the food was overpriced and very average.
I stayed there in July for a work related stay in DC. The check in staff and hotel managers are responsive and generous. As a platinum Marriott member they gave me a generous credit for breakfast .. more than enough to cover the excellent farm to table food. The GM Carlos and Ezy were so kind and made sure my stay was flawless in every way.
Can not recommend this particular property enough .. much better than the other Marriott hotels in the area and with much better and thoughtful service.
Love the location of this hotel. Convenient to many metro lines, Georgetown, and all that DuPont has to offer. Room was very nice, clean, and had a great bed. The staff was incredibly nice and always willing to help. It’s a great full service hotel.
