That was the response I got when I complained about the noise. As my colleague says this hotel is a "nightclub with a few rooms". They have a great rooftop bar with a great view but it gets noisy. You don't really hear it from the bar but people congregate in the street especially when the bar closes at 3... More

The hotel is a nice mix of modern and old. The location is amazing. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The doorman immediately retrieved an umbrella for me when I realized that I had left mine upstairs and it was starting to drizzle. When I requested Advil the staff member immediately, asked if I would like water as well.... More

As part of our holiday in the US we finished up in Washington DC for two nights. I booked the W hotel on a points and money booking as I often stay in SPG hotels while on business. The room we were given 1033 was small with a small bed. As this was the end of a two week holiday... More

You cannot beat this hotel's location. I typically get my SPG platinum upgrades to suites overlooking the Washington Monument and White House (the "worst" room overlooked the Treasury building). While the standard rooms are tiny, the suites are great. The rooftop POV lounge also has great views and is one of my favorite places in the city to bring out-of-towners... More

Went to DC for a vacation,overall experience was good except for the bathroom, as the translucent glass walls of the bathroom was concern as one would need privacy getting freshen up or shower. Location of the hotel is a bonus as it is just walking distance to major attractions and museums.

My family and I stayed at the W hotel during July of 2014 solely because it had been recommended to us by a congressman. He had spoke wonders about the rooftop which I will gripe about in a moment. So, at first impression, the hotel lobby is small and lacks proper service. We had booked two rooms and found the... More

I booked this hotel several months ago specifically for its location and the views from the rooftop terrace. Unfortunately I found out only a week or so before travelling that the rooftop bar would be closed for renovation during our stay. However, I wrote directly to the hotel to express my disappointment over this and received a fantastic response. The... More

The hotel is everything you'd expect from a W, chic and modern with an attentive staff. The W is located right next door to the White House and within walking distance of all of the major monuments. The valet parking is around $50 a night, but there are plenty of garages close by that have overnight parking for far less.... More

Great location in the DC area. It’s centrally located to all of the attractions with many restaurant choices in easy walking distance. The room was great because we had a suite and connecting room for our family, so there was plenty of space for us. The difference between the rooms was hugs, the suite was enormous compared to the regular... More

This W hotel in DC is the former Hotel Washington. The W added some nice touches to the rooms -- it seemed odd that the sink and counter were in the bedroom, but then I realized this was done to make it possible to install a huge walk-in shower which was definitely a luxurious touch (one problem, however, the slider...
