Rated 3 out of 5 by charmed9 Hotel room great, but amenities NOT great
The hotel is beautiful, conveniently located, and the rooms are very comfortable. I was very disappointed however in three things - 1) no indoor pool or hot tub, 2) I had to pay for really BAD internet, difficult to connect and then weak signal for all of our devices, and 3) the bar is a joke with ridiculously expensive drinks and terrible service.

Lighting in the room was poor. Wattage of lamps are ridiculusly low.
Going to the bathroom during night, all bathroom lights come on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PA11132014 Surprisingly disappointing
Room request and confirmation was not kept or of any concern to the front desk. Evening of our wedding our room was next to ice machine and elevator noise. Food was disappointing and unfinishable, pre-prepared and took three times to get correct. No apology except we did from the exhausted room svc employee. Housekeeping and valet was exceptionally responsive while front desk was clueless and of no help or resolution. Rooms were super clean but ,mattresses were old, used, smelled and uncomfortable. I am a diehard SPG customer and love every location I stay for business and personal with NOTHING short of exceptional experience. This was severely below my expectation and what you are classifying category 5 hotel. I regret my choice of facility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eugene70 This hotel has excellent amenities.
I enjoyed this hotel because of its location to the historical landmarks. However, the hotel itself has excellent room features, along with a very nicely outfitted work out area for those into fitness. I would recommend this facility for anyone wanting to visit the Washington DC area. Well done Westin Georgetown.

Loved this hotel.....me and my wife are local and wanted to just get away for the weekend and we chose this property. I must say it met all expectations of the "Westin" brand. The staff was nice a knowledgeable and very welcoming. They pointed us in the right direction and even recommended us to a nice restaurant for dinner. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone in the area.

This used to be a good hotel in a convenient location. Now management wants to nickel and dime their customers for everything. Like $13/DAY for internet (!) and $6 plus tax to print a one page boarding pass. In addition, a request to the front desk to investigate the reason why the television went on spontaneously at 1:30 am EVERY morning went ignored.

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at the Westin Georgetown. The room and bathroom were extremely comfortable. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to work out in the gym, but I thought it was a great idea to have sports clothes and shoes delivered to the room for US$ 5. I'll take advantadge of it in my next stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pete55 Fine Hotel
Away from the noise of the center of Washington, the Westin Georgetown makes sleep possible, and yet also is within easy reach of the Capitol. The room has the fine Westin Heavenly Bed, plus a fine,serviceable decor. The Restaurant was expensive, and did not meet our needs, but being vegan means that we can only expect so much.
The staff was accommodating and friendly.
Thanks for a very nice first four days in the Nation's Capitol.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Franchino Few issue to look after
We were in room 821 The furniture in a room are not well placed.
The cabinet is too close to the bed and no room is available to move in a rational way.
You need to locate the furniture in a better manner.
The lights in a bathroom are too bright.
The tap with water very tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mimi712 A mostly excellent experience
We along with many guests stayed here for my son's wedding. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The front desk was extremely accommodating.
Many of us were able to check in early, however, there were some room mix-ups in locattons promised. Eventually all worked out.
Two other issues were that the retrieval times of parked cars by the valet were often much longer than promised. This was problematic a few times.
Last, make sure to read all the signs on your room's refrigerator and snacks. Unreasonably, if you move even pick up the snacks you pay and if you put any little item in the fridge, you are charged $100! So check your bill. We asked for and got refrigerators, as people visited our rooms,
but most people did not.

Nice location in DC sights all available by walking or subway.
Restrautants within the hotel are somewhat lackluster, cuisine below par.
Houskeeping is average at best.
Would recommend for location average for area.

The room was ok, minus the tempermental light switches. With all the remodeling, it was difficult to feel at ease moving around the lobby area. When it is completed, I suspect that this will not be an issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jechho God option in DC
Decent business hotel in West End, within walking distance to Georgetown. The rooms facing M and 24th street are somewhat noisy, so go for a courtyard room if you want quiet. Note that even the courtyard has it noise issues: The garbage dumpster to the building next door is usually picked up by a truck at 8am during the week, and there are weddings and other events out there during the weekends.
Our stay ambassador who also checked us in, Garbrielle, was great, and went above and beyond for us finding a quiet room and helping us with the rather confusing spg platinum breakfast amenity. The restaurant is privately run, so the 20 dollars per room offered by the hotel did not cover an “spg” continental breakfast for two. However, after bringing this up, front desk took care of it.
All in all a good stay, and we will probably return.

From arrival to check-out this was an exceptional hotel experience.
This Westin is now completely renovated and so new, fresh, and spot on. The value for the rate is amazing. This location is perfect. The rooms are so comfortable. But, I saved the best for last, the staff is well trained, experienced, engaging, and at every touch point with us they knew the answers or how to make us feel good to be there. We will definitely refer all friends and colleagues to the Westin Georgetown.

I chose the Westin Georgetown for its proximity to both Georgetown University and George Washington University. Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are close by so is the Metro. The lobby was under renovation but there wasn't much noise heard from my room which was above the porte-cochere / lobby. The hotel did compensate this inconvenience by providing free room internet.

Excellent service here by the entire staff. Especially G, the manager Vick and another female manager whose name I didn't catch. The location is great, and the staff is exceptional. Not all Westins treat their customers this well. Thank you Georgetown Westin!

Been to Washington, DC several times and always managed to stay in different areas. Found this location to be the best of the lot to my liking. Convenient and close enough to everything, and especially close to Georgetown which is a diversion of a different animal.

Great location, great staff, but the shower was bad, unable to control the temperature of the shower in room 300. We checked in late to a full hotel, staff no doubt aware of problem, but I think they were out of rooms?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rello60 Very accommodating staff
Stayed at the Westin Georgetown recently with the family for a DC vacation and had a great experience. Staff accommodated our requests for a roll away bed and WIFI assistance quickly. Front Desk staff helped us locate the nearest Metro station and family-friendly restaurants in the area. This is a smaller Westin, so no long waits for the elevator or car valet. Very clean hotel & friendly staff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by flumpydog Hotel staff and facilities were great!
We had been in DC prior to this trip in 2011. We stayed (my family of 4) at the Westin downtown location (14th/M street I believe). It was very centrally located, but I saw on the Hop On off bus a little town called Georgetown and wanted to try it out on our next visit. I am so glad I did!
I was there with my girlfriend and 6 year old along with my teenager 15. We had a fantastic visit.
The hotel staff was stupendous..especially Danielle (I think that was her name, she was there Sun. night when we checked in and today when we were leaving). Not wanting to be a pest for too many requests, you guys really came through!
From the cot, to the extra fridge to the knife so we could cut up an apple..you were top notch!
Will definitely come and stay with you again and recommend you to others.
Until next time...

Rated 3 out of 5 by Matthew14 Average for a Westin
The Westin Georgetown doesn't compare to other Westins I've stayed at around the world. When I arrived in my room, the desk lamp and two bed lamps were not functioning because the cords had been unplugged. This problem required moving furniture to plug in the lamps and plugging the TV into a different outlet. I didn't want to move the furniture myself, so I called the concierge to report it. I called back again a couple of minutes later because I forgot to ask which internet plan I could use as a Platinum member (the front desk never informed me upon check-in). The concierge's voice sounded annoyed when I called the second time, like I was bothering her. The engineer who came to move the furniture was very pleasant, but he put his arms and hands on the pillows and sheets, which wasn't very hygenic. Overall, the room was relaxing and the bathroom was spacious, but I was not impressed with the service for a four-star hotel. I wonder why someone didn't check the room beforehand to make sure everything was in working order.
