Best Hotel in Washington DC

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 24, 2008

Very impressed with the luxurious appointments in this Hotel. Unfortunately for us we only had 2 nights stay as we were on a short visit.

The staff were courtious and pleasant, and it had a pleasant bar to unwind in after a day tramping around the sites of Washington DC

Unique Quality: As we used this hotel primarily as somewhere to wind down after a days sightseeing we only required a quiet bar and a comfortable bed.

Our expectations were surpassed - up to this point in my life this hotel had the best appointed bedroom of any hotel I had stayed in.

To top-off a great stay in DC we took a stretch limo from the hotel to the airport - very posh indeed!

Directions: Near Dupont Circle, convenient for Connecticut Avenue shopping and The Kennedy Centre for performing arts.

Good location, Nice rooms

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 28, 2008

We booked this hotel not knowing too much about it's location. We did know it was a Westin and we never had a bad experience.
Excellent staff, rooms were wonderful and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in.
Great location - close to the Metro, Starbucks and various restaurants.
Two big warnings:
A) Our Trip to Washington DC was in 2004 and from what I understand this hotel is going through extensive remodeling due to being pretty run down.
B) The Area is wonderful BUT at night it is a "gay" hotspot. If you are homophobic you may not be a "happy camper". We didn't care and loved the place.

Unique Quality: Just a unique tidbit:
This hotel was once a Ritz Carlton
This Hotel was the childhood home of AL Gore (isn't that exciting)!

Priceline in DuPont Circle

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 18, 2004

I was having trouble bidding on Priceline for Friday and Saturday in DuPont Circle (stopped at $90) so I ended up breaking my trip into 2 pieces and stayed one night at the Westin Embassy Row. I bid $85 for a 3* in DuPont Circle and ended up with the 4* Westin.

I liked the location a lot, a few blocks from the red line metro, a nice walk down the beginning of Embassy Row on Massachusetts St. The surrounding area is filled with restaurants (see review for Pizza Paradiso), shops and beautiful mansions now housing embassies. There are several places to grab breakfast in the area including a Krispy Kreme if you're in a hurry, a couple of bakeries and Kramer's.

Unique Quality: Room-Westin has the Heavenly Beds which I love, lots and lots of comfy pillows and bedding! There was a in room safe, minibar, TV with a few stations including Showtime, internet connection (extra fee) and AC. I didn't have much of a view but really no hotels in Washington DC do because of the height restrictions.

Bathroom-shower had plenty of hot water and the Heavenly Shower which gives you multiple settings, toiletries included soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion, huge fluffy towels, a hair dryer and a coffeemaker with Starbucks products.

Directions: DuPont Circle
