On arrival I found the room to be quite small and music noise in the hotel from a party on the top floor. Yes the bed is very comfortable but a little space to walk around it would be nice. All the features were there, well stocked minibar etc. The water tap produced a very slow stream of water. All... More

The W in DC is a trendy, stylish hotel, but also is very warm and welcoming. Every time that I stay at the W in DC, I am impressed by how helpful, responsive and nice all of the staff are. For a city hotel, the rooms are a good size and are nicely furnished. The location is great for experiencing... More

This is my second time staying here and I had an even better stay the second time! Their customer service is really excellent, from the valets and doormen who remember you by name, to everyone in the lobby and front desk! They had rather unique JFK and Nixon pillows in my room, designed specifically for the W DC, and I... More

I don't normally use TripAdvisor, but I was happy to create an account to give credit where credit is due. Hopefully it is not too late for Matt to get "noticed" for his good job. My husband and I were staying at a nearby hotel last week and came by The POV for a cocktail prior to catching a show.... More

We stayed in the "W" for a business meeting in Washington DC in early December 2014. From the first impression at check in with delicious hot cider to thaw us out, to the helpfulness of the associates to guide us to the meeting area, all contacts with the staff were excellent. Questions for help we always answered with a smile... More

We stayed there for ThanksGiving 2014 and I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the way the Washington hotel has been transformed into a "W" hotel - Mixing the DC local vibe the "W" way, simply beautiful!!! The staff was extremely attentive. I mentioned to my husband about how my head was hurting because of my bad cold. The amazing Moroccan lady I... More

I have stayed at the W during my past 2 business trip to DC and have been very pleased. The location enabled us to walk to the White House, the Jefferson and Washington monuments, etc. The majority of the hotel staff was very kind and accommodating, very eager to meet my needs. One young man was not as friendly, seeming... More
