I hate to click the average on this hotel because it is NOT average. It's just different. I didn't like this hotel but it is because of my age! I'm too old for all this hotel. They have taken an old building and furnished it in an ultra modern style. The halls were painted black or almost black. The rooms... More

We stayed there for 4th of July weekend!!! It was perfect!!! Stuff was nice and friendly! Room was clean, a little small, but very comfy. Rooftop terrace was awesome!!! Beautiful view, nice people! Bartenders are very friendly and we really had fun! I read reviews before I booked this hotel. I don't know why people saying bad things about this... More

While furnishings were lovely, I was first given an interior room that had a window overlooking an elevator type shaft space. The window was 100% frosted with white so as to obscure the depressing view. I was told this an "interior" quality room. While management was accommodative and moved me to another room, the next room had a shower with... More

This was my first time staying in a Starwood property in DC and I can say that it was totally worth every penny. I wasn't even there for 8 hours, due to work but I will be back. I was able to grab an appetizer from the Rooftop Lounge and the view was breath taking. The lounge downstairs is lit... More

Let me begin by saying I have been to many other hotels that are far less expensive and had much better service. I have also been to other luxury hotels and know what to expect. We were disappointed with our stay for multiple reasons. First, we planned a trip to watch the fireworks in DC for the 4th. I searched... More

My husband thoughtfully bought us tickets ($80 each) for their 'boom with a view' to see the July 4th fireworks on their rooftop bar. We mistakenly thought the bar would be open air. You couldn't even see the fireworks unless you were right at the edge (which I wasn't). That coupled with outrageously priced cocktails left us with a disappointing... More

Hi Michelle L, I thank you for your feedback as it is greatly appreciated.

There were many places to view the fireworks yet due to the amount of guests it... More

Confession...I did not sleep here. We just got a suite to enjoy the fireworks and I got more than I expected. When I checked in I was told that in addition to the room I could enjoy a bunch of freebies totaling well over $200. It eased the pain of the $600+ price tag. The suite was just lovely. I... More

Best part about this hotel is the rooftop bar, it's amazing. I went during dusk in the summer time and it was breathtaking, the breeze and the atmosphere was great. It was very pricy, I paid $18 fora vodka gimlet.

Hello SusanF, Our rooftop bar does boast some of the best views in Washington, DC. I am glad you got a chance to experience not only the views but to do so at dusk as it is one the most beautiful times of day. Please stay tuned for our re-design and what we will unveil in the near future. We... More

A very old hotel in a great part of the city. It's been restored, but all the high tech lighting and such do not compensate for the fact that the rooms are absolutely TINY! Everything about the room was compressed beyond belief. There literally was no towel bar anywhere so you had to just leave towels laying on the floor... More

Ok great location yes. Beautiful architecture (outside) yes. Some nice staff. And a great rooftop restaurant/bar with view. But inside is sort of depressing. The overall decor is desperately trying to be something it's not, like a 70 year old man with a 20 year old girl friend at a dance club. The interior rooms are small, bad layout, and... More
