The hotel was fresh and modern and well appointed. Fantastic central location and roof top bar. But by far the best part was the outstanding customer service. I was sick while I was there and the staff went well out of their way to get me items from the pharmacy when I couldn't myself. I was really well looked after.... More

Dear MIMcDermott, I am thrilled to see that you enjoyed your experience, although that was not the best one from a health stand point. We pride ourselves to deliver whatever our guests need and sometime... this has nothing to do with hotel related aminities. It is the way it should always be and our talents will be glad to see...

Great hotel in a superb location, cool top floor bar with amazing views, and great service but with the ongoing refurbishment of the 515 bar and main restaurant, only a four in my book. I look forward to coming back in October when it should be back to its regular high and funky standards

Dear Nairobijohn, Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us. I definitely invite you to taste our new "look and feel" in a couple of months. After five years in operation, we felt it was time to revisit our restaurant concept as well as our popular rooftop terrace design. More to come so stay tuned... In the meantime,... More

Despite my SPG Gold status, room was so small, not well maintained (even toilet paper dispenser loose and paper keeps falling into the trash can). Staff was very nice and accommodating. POV on rooftop is very pricey even at Happy Hour" (none) and bar bite choices limited.

Dear Artff1717, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. I have read your concerns about the size of the room and your SPG Gold status. As you well know, being Gold status entitles you to the next room category than the one you have booked, upon availability. The W Washington DC offers Wonderful rooms with internal view on the...

Stayed here 6 nights, so not an insignificant spend. Rooms are small, shower leaks all over the bathroom floor, toilet door doesn't close properly so you might as well be in the bedroom. Having a sink in the bedroom is also a really stupid design idea from a noise perspective. Wifi is 15 bucks per day unless you are a... More

Had a great time at this hotel around Christmas. we had fun drinking in the hotel lobby, then we ended up finding out about the roof top bar. This was great as well you can see many of the highlights of Washington DC. Drinks were expensive so if you are on a budget this is not for you.

This is your average four-star property! I wish I could say more because of its surroundings and its location, but the room and hotel itself; just four-star.

Enjoyed this hotel, was in a great location right next to white house. The hotel definitely could use a little updating, but overall was impressed. Staff extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely stay here again although it was pricey.

We stayed here over a weekend in April 2014. The property is excellent considering how bang in the middle of the city it is. Access is good, layout very convenient.
