This hotel is beautiful. Lobby is very striking. Service was great throughout our weeklong stay. Location can't be beat, it's in the heart of downtown with a short walk to the metro, the National Mall, White House, Museums, etc. Room was well appointed, but a little small. My one complaint would be there was no in-room coffee options besides room... More

I've stayed at this hotel a few times and keep forgetting to review it. My sister (22) and I (28) stay here for NYE and the 4th of July almost every year, and the hotel manages to exceed our expectations every time. The location is perfect for touring the monuments and museums if that's what you're visiting for, but you're... More

I had the chance to stay at the W in DC and had a very positive experience. The service at the front desk was amiable and moved quickly, room service was timely, and the rooms were very clean. We wanted to do something in the evening and were happily surprised to have a seriously amazing lounge to let loose in.... More

Whenever I travel to DC, I always stay at the W. The lobby is great for relaxing and all the staff are extremely attentive. I especially like POV. The view is spectacular, and the manager, Danny always takes great care of my friends and I. Hands down the best place to stay in DC!

Overall this hotel stay was pleasant and comfortable. The rooms are clean, quiet and relatively spacious. The hotel is the old "Washington Hotel" and has been redone with the W retro flavor to it which is out of place and overdone at times. The bathrooms only have showers and its not really a separate room from the sleeping area. Decent... More

You're likely wondering about my title - let me explain. I'm an avid SPG guest, and am having a lot of trouble discerning the "W" brand from the "aloft" brand. The branding is so similar, that I woke up thinking I was staying in an aloft... which isn't a bad thing. Just odd. I frequent both types of properties, and... More

Attended an event in town and was put up at the W. Never stayed there prior. Great experience. Room was well above average. Large bathroom. Rooftop bar is probably best in DC. Front desk staff exceptionally profession.

I had the pleasure of spending my birthday weekend at the W Hotel. I was unsure of how I would spend my evenings-but certain that the city would have a great deal to offer. I was introduced to Zineb Tourougui. Her title is, the W Insider. She was very pleasant and welcoming. Far more knowledgeable about the city than I... More
