4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The hotel was vey good in many aspects. Location, location, and location! We had a room with an awesome view and near great restaurants. We ate at Occidental Grill and Toscas, both excellent. Our stay was made memorable when greeted by Ms. Maria Ximona, Wharever/Whenever Specialist. She was delightful, professional, and left us with a wonderful memory of our stay!

Checked for a three night stay. When I arrived at there, my room was not quite ready, but the staff was very accommodating. They did explain to me that the 10th floor rooms can be a bit noisy on Friday and Saturday nights due to the 11th floor bar, so the were able to give me a room on the... More

W's location is great if you have meetings around metro center or want to be near DC's top tourist sights. Pinera restaurant is quite good and the rooftop bar offers unique views of the DC skyline. HOWEVER: - Don't stay in a 10th floor suite. The rooftop bar is above and there is TERRIBLE noise from the music system until... More

So my friends and I managed to book a room at the W for a great discounted rate. We were psyched because of the location, which is perfect if you're planning to spend most of your time in DC visiting museums and memorials. Their roof top bar is perfect to get a great view of the White House (though seeing... More

We only stayed one night - but what a night. The rooms are slick but small (but no surprise given the location right in DC). No need to spend time in the room - just hang out in the rooftop bar. It overlooks The White House and the Mall - if you are lucky you can see a Marine 1... More

We stayed at the W for a weekend away. What a great escape. The location is excellent--it's close to the White House, the Mall, etc, as well as great places to eat. We had breakfast in the hotel (Pinea) and that was wonderful. We also spent some time at POV, the rooftop bar (which is an addictive place). The staff... More

Love this hotel! We had a great view. Location is perfect for walking to the sights and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Do not miss POV - the rooftop bar and restaurant - . This will be my choice for future stays in DC.

Golden or as the transforming of a caterpillar to a butterfly terminology says, "chrysalis." The W Washington is a golden experience. From the lobby that conveys a couture lounge pulse, you sense the hotel has flare and pizzazz. Staff were exceptional and genuinely expressed a sense of concern to deliver nothing less than the great experience. After meetings all week,... More

I spent 3 nights at the W Washington while on business just after the President's Day weekend. The hotel, itself, is in the old "Hotel Washington" building (listed on the National Register of Historic Places). The original registration desk still stands in the lobby on the other side of the elevators from the current reg desk. Because it's an historic... More
