Marriott is expanding its Westin brand’s presence in the heart of our nation’s capital.
Here’s what you need to know.
800+ Rooms in the Heart of D.C.
The Westin Washington, D.C. Downtown has a whopping 807 rooms and has undergone a nearly $80 million renovation.
Amenities include an onsite restaurant, a grab-and-go market, a 10,000-square-foot fitness center with Peloton bikes, meeting spaces, and more.
The hotel is conveniently located blocks away from the Mount Vernon Square Metro station (Green and Yellow lines) and is a short walk to D.C.’s Chinatown neighborhood, the National Mall, and the White House.
“From the moment they arrive at Westin Washington, D.C. Downtown, guests will have endless opportunities to recharge and recover,” said Jennifer Connell, Global Brand Leader, Westin Hotels & Resorts and Vice President of Distinctive Premium Brands, Marriott International.
Westin is one of Marriott’s Distinctive Premium brands, which also includes Le Méridien, Renaissance Hotels, and Gaylord Hotels. You’ll find more than 235 Westin hotels and resorts in over 40 countries and territories.
How To Book
Westin Washington, D.C. Downtown is now open for guests. The hotel is participating in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program, which means you’ll be able to earn and redeem Marriott Bonvoy points for stays.
If you want to book a stay here this fall, you’ll find award nights reasonably priced at just 30,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per night, similar to the other Westin properties in the D.C. area. However, cash rates are reasonable as well — rooms are going for as low as $136 per night this fall.
It’s relatively easy to earn Marriott Bonvoy points, even if you’re a points and miles beginner. That’s because Marriott offers several co-branded credit cards with massive welcome bonus offers — and some form of Marriott Bonvoy status included.
You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points and American Express Membership Rewards points at a 1:1 ratio, and sometimes, both programs offer transfer bonuses that will give you more points for however many points you transfer.
This is exciting news for Marriott Bonvoy fans who plan to travel to D.C., as they now have a new high-end option that’s affordable with points or with cash. If you’re planning a trip to the District, the Westin Washington, D.C. Downtown is a fantastic hotel to consider!
