Stayed here for 1 night, you need to walk a good 10/15 mins to get to a good selection of restaurants in the evening.mlocation is superb for White House and the main attractions. I had a room on the 3rd floor, it was a little noisy, the road below is quite busy, but overall a good sleep. Breakfast was also... More

W is super chic, trendy in the lobby. The room was quite comfortable. The bar on the top floor of the hotel is a must visit! It has a beautiful view of the Monument especially at night. Drinks are fairly expensive though. Shopping and good restaurants are within walking distance.

Just returned from a one night girlfriends' getaway to DC and had a fantastic experience at the W. It is a fun, trendy, chic hotel in a great location. The door men and valet drivers were very friendly. Sam at the front desk was super nice and we were pleasantly surprised to be able to check into our room at... More

Located right next to the White House and close to the Mall you cannot beat the location. The meals at the restaurant were good, and the look is neat. Rooms are kind of small. Ours unfortunately was located next to the hanging flags outside which made a tremendous racket all night long. Their biggest selling point is their location. I... More

The W helped me pull off an incredible surprise for my wife's birthday. From recommending the perfect suite, to having champagne on ice when we walked in, to the reserved table at POV, to the wonderful breakfast the next morning I could not have dreamed of better service. Jimena at the front desk was incredible helpful with last minute coordination... More

The W Washington DC is one of my favorite SPG properties anywhere. While the location is fantastic and the views from POV are tough to beat, in my humble opinion, it is the staff that makes this hotel unforgettable. The East Coast can be a rough place to be depending on the time of year you are here with weather-related... More

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic stay over Valentine’s Day weekend at the W Hotel DC. Our trip started off a little rough – heavy traffic had prevented us from having lunch on the way down and delayed our arrival until about 4PM. My girlfriend and I both were probably visibly tired and a little stressed when we finally... More

When we decided to go to DC for the kids winter break, we knew we wanted to stay at a Starwood property - we feel most at home away from home when we stay at their properties. We found availability at the W on 15th street and booked it. We had a great stay there and loved the location, the... More

Stayed at W hotel for a weekend visit to DC for the winter classic, over New Years eve weekend. It is a nice, stylish, hotel with absolutely fantastic location to the White House, and the National Mall. The roof top bar could potentially be a lovely place for drinks in the summer, but in winter time, with a hazy clear... More

This W did a great job of meshing the historical building into a chic and modern hotel. It is a perfect location just blocks away from the White House and national mall. It also has an awesome rooftop bar/lounge with outstanding views of D.C.
