its 5min walk from the White House and from the rooftop terrace, you can see it and the Washington Memorial. A very nice blend from the "old style" hotel with a modern W architecture, specially the lobby. For once, the hotel had a European style Breakfast buffet with a very good selection. not to much but very delicious and nicely... More

I just recently returned from DC and loved the W.. As usual it delivered on all the expected stuff things like hip décor and the rooftop bar and terrace, but the location was the best choice ever. The room itself was small and I was in a premium room facing the Department of Treasury and White House. I initially called... More

Our room was small but nicely decorated. The walls are so thin I could hear the people next door talking and their phone ringing. I could here people in the hallways. The hotel could use some serious sound proofing. The hotel is nicely located close to white house and less than 10 min walk to Verizon center. The lobby is... More

I stayed at the W for a couple nights for business and received the type of service and attention I expect at a W. The front desk staff were all friendly and courteous. The doormen were nice and seemed to be attentive to the needs of guests. The room was small, but I've come to expect that at all W... More

After trying for years, I was finally able to get the government rate and had high expectations for the W. Starting with check-in, the service was excellent. We were upgraded to an amazing corner suite overlooking the Washington monument. I could have sat in the window all day enjoying the view! The bed was so comfortable, and the bathroom was... More

Directly across the street from the White House tour and Washington Monument, you can't get a better location! We stayed here on SPG points, and as platinum members we used some "suite night rewards" to upgrade to a suite. Our room was spacious, offered a great view and was decorated in the typical W style. The room was definitely needing... More

Check your invoice closely. They tacked on some charges for snacks that I didn't eat. After 5 phone calls, several emails, and 7 days later my account was refunded. I don't appreciate being charged for snacks I didn't eat. $15 is not a big deal, but it was a bogus charge. I won't be staying there again. Not worth the... More

Thank you for your wonderful note regarding your overall experience at the W! However, a stay is meant to be easy, comfortable and relaxing. To find that you could not comfortably relax in our guestroom due to the lack of lighting is disappointing. We will consider this kind of feedback with future redesigns.
