The Westin Alexandria is located in the Carlyle neighborhood of the historic town of Alexandria, Virginia. Just 25 minutes from Washington D.C., Alexandria is celebrated for its quaint boutiques, inviting restaurants, and charming brick architecture, specifically in the Old Town area. Carlyle is a new, upscale neighborhood adjacent to Old Town and home to the Albert V. Bryan Federal Courthouse, the Patent and Trademark Office, and several association headquarters, government agencies, and military offices. Guests of the hotel can gaze out at the impressive George Washington Masonic Memorial from their rooms, or walk two blocks to John Carlyle Square. A popular gathering and picnic spot, the square is home to an attractive park and fountain and is surrounded by office buildings, restaurants, and businesses.
Just two miles from the hotel, Cameron Run is perfect for families with young children to entertain. Spend the day splashing in the water park, teeing off at the miniature golf course, taking a swing at the batting cage, or enjoying a peaceful picnic. Of course, the hotel's location just outside Washington D.C. lets guests easily access the countless museums, monuments, shops, and restaurants of the nation’s capital.
