Stayed here for the ZBB concert just a few weeks ago. Very convenient location (short Uber ride to the stadium) with plenty of restaurants/bars nearby. Front desk was very responsive, even made special accommodations when a friend of ours needed a last minute room. Rooftop bar overlooking White House is nice happy hour spot. Rooms and amenities were nice as... More

Great location beside the White House. Not actually beside it, but so close we could see the secret service guys from our room. Our suite was great but maybe a bit expensive for what it was. Due to jet lag I was up early each morning and loved the great coffee in reception (free). Breakfast is great and seems to... More

One of the best locations in DC, walking distance to the White House, museums and short taxi/uber ride to many different restaurants. The hotel is old, so rooms are plenty small but well appointed. The only thing I was really surprised was the TV was not mounted on the wall. This would have saved space and the cable was annoying... More

What a wonderful service. One of the best in the USA. Not intrusive yet thoughtful. I WA carrying a hanger of clothing to the cab and this smiling person just took it from my hand which was such a relief. Anything which is done without asking always gets brownie points. Good rooms. Amazing bathrooms. Best of all a happening rooftop... More

We arrived at the hotel, which had a lot of security around which we found a bit strange, but after finding out that Barcelona FC were also staying at the hotel we understood. The staff were great and the rooms were very spacious and had views overlooking the Whitehouse and surrounding areas. We had dinner in the restaurant which was... More

The rooms are unbelievable, one of the best beds you will find in ANY hotel. The bathrooms are fabulous, great soaps, shampoos, robes, water pressure, you won't want to get out of the shower. Besides the rooms the hotel is a great place to be and I am not a guy who likes to hang around the hotel but this... More

I recently stayed at the W for a work/leisure trip. The location is amazing! Across the street from the U.S. Treasury Building and White House, it is centrally located just a short distance from the Washington monument. The customer service was stellar. After I had arrived, and settled into the hotel room, I realized that my bed was not clean.... More

Maybe the party scene is for you. If so, this is the hotel for you. The roof top bar turns into a crowded loud club at night. There are lots of like minded attractive people looking for fun. However, if you want a peaceful and quiet place to rest up between sights or business meetings, do not stay here. This... More
