Rated 3 out of 5 by Georgina Good location for Georgetown and GW.
My daughter and I had a lovely visit to the area. Unfortunately the female who checked us in was unprofessional. I gave her my passbook information, my license and Starwood American Express and she refused to let me check in unless I called my husband and he told her it was ok. Our names and address on my license are the same, and I have traveled all over the country on this account without having to have my husband talk to the hotel help before. She said it was for security purposes, but that was a lie. My photo license confirmed I was who I said, and the Starwood Amex proved it was my account, as well as the fact that I had the passbook account information and reservation confirmation on my iPhone. And I could have called anyone and handed her my phone. She was trying to give me a hard time for some unknown reason. She also refused me extended checkout which is a privilege of gold membership. I should have spoken with management, but I did not want to make a scene. When next we visit DC I will likely go back to the W as the staff there were phenomenal in every way.

Nice one-night room for a frequent guest. Didn't notice until early AM that Housekeeping had forgotten to stock room with shampoo and shower gel. Too late to call for service. Small thing but shouldn't have happened.

Hotel is in great location. Starbucks Coffee just across street. Walls are paper thin so you hear the noise from other rooms above you and beside you. The pillows were also uncomfortable for us.

The hotel was in a good location for business purposes because it was near the offices I was visiting. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. Best of all, it was quiet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Knox16 Not enough for Platinum members
Room was nice but other than 500 points for platinum little is offered like continental breakfast. They say that is one of the platinum choices but that is a poor option as 500 points are more valuable

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bus0000 Did not meet expectations / Staff unhelpful
It is my expectation that when one makes a reservation at a hotel, the purpose of that reservation is to have a room available at the date and time specified. I reserved a room at the Westin in Georgetown, Washington D.C. for a wedding in town. I used to live in the area, but as to not impose on friends, I reserved the room suggested by the wedding party. When I arrived, I was told by the hotel that my room was not "ready" and that I would have to wait an extra hour for it to be available; the exact time I would need to leave to be able to get to the wedding. When I explained I needed a room in which to change and get prepared for the wedding, they were equally as unhelpful, and I ended up having to impose on another wedding party member's room to get prepared. At the actual wedding, I discovered that the hotel staff had offered another wedding guest complimentary breakfast and parking for their mix up on his room. When I returned to the hotel to check out, I informed the front desk of the unequal treatment, and after 20 minutes of much cajoling, they reluctantly paid for my parking.

This hotel has it all - very comfortable stay. Quiet, good location, accommodating staff, free newspaper, 2 restaurants. The only downside is the room snacks are a bit pricey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by skyus1 Good hotel/Lots of hidden fees
The hotel was a good, comfy hotel but when I went to check out there were lots of hidden fees due to the "magnets". I got it resolved but I did not appreciate the extra time checking out.

We stayed here over the Christmas holiday in 2012. This had one of the nicest hotel bathrooms that I have ever seen with a large curbless shower and even larger soaking tub.
