5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This hotel is a five star experience, start to finish. The location is exceptional, right across the street from the White House, blocks from the Mall, short walk to China Town, and close to the Metro Blue line from DCA. The hotel oozes class, but vibrates with a funky vibe. The rooms are a bit cramped, but you feel pampered,... More

This is by far one of the best locations, directly across the street from the Treasury building, and closest hotel to the White house. It is walking distance to most everything in DC. The rooms are quite small, and they tried to make a beautiful, historic building with amazing architecture a little too hip. It looks like they intended to... More

Perfectly located to experience the architectural beauty of Washington DC. Located right near the White house and monument is is a great place to stay and explore. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Restaurant in the lobby was wonderful with attentive staff and great food!. Views from rooftop bar are spectacular!! All staff we met with were friendly and helpful.

The hotel was impeccably clean and Carrie Hutcheson did everything she could to make our stay pleasant. I would definitely stay here again! The hotel was centrally located with easy walking distance to the White House. I loved the POV bar on the rooftop!

Didn't liked the layout of the rooms. No fancy or new amenities. Room was clean but could use a new lifting. visited POV Bar for Bruch and for some drinks. The prizes are overrated and cocktails good be better especially long waiting to get a server or to have the drinks/ food.

We enjoyed our stay in W Hotel in Washington. Staff were pleasant and helpful ( apart from one fairly uninterested bartender) and the location could not be better. The rooms were fairly small and the outlook was not spectacular. We loved the rooftop bar with views of the Mall and White House. Fantastic comfortable and welcoming lobby to escape to... More

While the location of this hotel is great the service was horrible. We returned from sight seeing on the first full day at 4 to find our room not yet serviced. When getting ready the hair blower stopped working. Asked at the front desk for a different one and assured it would happen right away, never happened. Worst of all,... More

This hotel was upscale, clean, and well located near the White House. There was some breakdown in the room, but otherwise the rooms were clean, the decor was trendy and fun. The bar upstairs was cold, and the clientele not as friendly....but the staff were friendly and attentive. The doormen were so fun and polite, and helpful with he information... More
