The most beautiful location, the service was dissapointing, but the ambiance and views were what made the experience a 10! It was like a beautiful NYC club over looking the White House. Breath taking. Would recommend it to anyone visiting the D.C. Area.

This hotel is located opposite the White House and a five minute walk from the National Mall where one finds most of the Smithsonian museums. Breakfast was served at the restaurant / terrace on the top floor with great views of the area and the Washington Monument. Not very many restaurants in the immediate vicinity but the few that there... More

Unique renovated historic building turned into hip W Hotel. Fun and uniquely designed common areas. Rooms are small and upper floor corridors dark and in need of a lighter touch. Hotel has all amenities including spa, dining, bars, small gym. Location makes this a strong choice. Awesome rooftop bar with perfect DC views. My room overlooked the roof of the... More

The W is approximately two blocks from the White house, close to Metro stops, a myriad selection of great restaurants, and the Mall. The POV lounge in the rooftop bar offers a stunning view of the Washington monument and side of the White House. Walk almost anywhere for the sights of the city and the museums, or hop on a... More

Whilst the staff and location of the W were and are, sensational, beware when booking a room! Our internal facing 7th floor room had a vinyl window cling meaning the room basically felt like it had no window at all. We can all cope with a room that has a window facing into a light well ( not all rooms... More

The W Washington DC's main highlight must be its location—just a short walk from the White House. It's also a very short walk from Metro Center station, making access to the rest of the city very convenient. My room featured great views of the Department of the Treasury, though other rooms have no view at all. The rooms were well... More

The room was tastefully decorated, slightly cramped, and the free standing glass shower was great. Breakfast buffet on the roof was good, but pricey ($25), but the view from there was outstanding. The bar up there rocked at night.

The tawdry red sofas in the lobby make a poor impression, as does the indifferent service at the front desk. Worse, on the rooftop the waitresses are rude and arrogant. Fortunately, the rooms themselves are more than satisfactory. The beds are comfortable and the shower reminiscent of a high-quality spa. Some staff merit special compliments: the valets/porters outside the door,... More
