I remember this landmark as an old boys club hang out for the super conservative legal/lobby crowd. Boy, have things changed. The lobby has the feel of many W hotels but is still grand and elegant with open bars, lounge seating and night club lighting not to mention movies and videos being played on the white walls. TACKY? NOT AT... More

Spectacular room was tiny. Bathroom sink was inside the room. Not used to that. Dim lighting in sink area. No counter top to put anything. Room service kept bringing up trays but there is no place to put it. Had to leave on bed while he went to get a roll in table. Then there is only 1 chair, so... More

Whatever. Wherever. Whenever. This hotel has it all. Amazing rooftop bar with to-die-for cocktails and views of the city and the White House. Amazing restaurant on the first floor... Order the octopus appetizer and whole fish. Bread pudding was off the charts! Gorgeous lobby bar with beautiful colored chandeliers and people. Place to impress! My boss did well. ;)

We did not stay in the hotel, just went up to the restaurant. The food was not great. The french fries and the hamburger were ok, they are easy to get right, but the Cuban sandwich and Margherita pizza were terrible, so I guess it averaged out to not great. The ambiance was pleasant. If you go, skip the food,... More

This hotel reminds me of the Malmaison chain in the UK. But whereas Malmaison gets everything right, this hotel is shabby and tired with glaring misses on service. In no particular order. It tries to be trendy with its rooftop bar etc, but that doesn't excuse thin walls between the bedrooms, tired fluffy bedroom carpets (whoever thought they were a... More

There are hotels which style themselves as 'trendy', but some of the 'style elements' are simply ways to economize the room. The euro style beds are as uncomfortable in the USA as they are in Europe, and not 'trendy' to me. But outside of that, the hotel is located in the center of the universe for anything you want to...

Within walking distance of every downtown museum and across the street from the Treasury (White House is on the other side and can be seen clearly from the roof top bar). Rooms were comfortable although road noise was noticeable. Rooftop bar had fantastic views but it was crowded, expensive, and the bartenders were rude. Downstairs "Living Room" bar was much... More

Great location and liked the trendy decor but the Reception were hopeless (doormen were all friendly and helpful) and the staff in restaurant looked like dressed down guests and were neither friendly nor helpful. One of our group wanted to book another few nights due to its central location and reception were distinctly unhelpful. Do NOT use the mini bar... More

The W Washington is exceptionally well located. Handy for the whitehouse and the Mall and the business district. I had stayed once before on Business but this time was a one day stop over vacation. The plus points are a great location and a very trendy vibe. The rooms are cool, chic. There was a choice of luxury rooms and... More
