Since we going to the Ice show at National Harbor, we decided to burn some free nights before they expired. There is a garage across the street (first left after hotel, garage is on the left), only $12.00 per 24 hours...much cheaper than the Westin. Check-in was flawless as there were zero people waiting... nice FD staff. Brought our dog, no waiver, and staff was friendly with our dog. Was asked about Plat points, but he offered 4 breakfast certs...so took that over 500 points. Upgraded to 6th floor, water view...maid was in hallway, so requested a few water bottles and got them with a smile. All the restaurants in the area were booked solid for a Saturday night...make reservations if youre planning on being in the area...opentable has several of them listed. Had one drink in the lobby bar...good service with expensive drinks (normal around here). Breakfast was good, two options, Harborview or Continental...drinks come with the certs although not listed. Great service in the restaurant...I mean outstanding....we doubled her tip, she was that good... They charged the rooms to my AMEX, but a trip to the front desk removed all charges for the rooms...They charge around 80 a night to SPG for award stays...so that was interesting to see the value of a "free" night I would stay here again if needed. No lounge, great service, expensive lobby bar drinks, nice atmosphere.
