I recently visited the W Washington from May 16-19 with my girlfriend and only have great things to say about our experience.

I couldn't ask for a better location. It is minutes away from the White House and close to the monuments and museums. The room was bright, clean, and had a great view of the Washington monument. Thank you to all of the staff that helped make this a fantastic trip. I will definitely be returning to this hotel soon!

You can't find a better location than the W if you are visiting Washington. The hotel is within walking distance to most of the major sites and it is the closest hotel to the White House. The staff are excellent and make you feel very welcome. The lounge is a great place to grab a drink while waiting for friends... More

W was a great location with a view. This place is in the heart of DC NW just a few blocks from the National Mall, Washington Monument, Capitol, White House. And surrounded by incredible restaurants, shopping and their own rooftop bar. Now their restaurant Pinea should be avoided at all costs! We went there for a quick breakfast on Ssturday... More

**This is a Rooftop Review** The scenic view from the Rooftop is amazing. The staff here is always quite customer service oriented,. You may run into congressional staffers from the hill, business people who work downtown, congressmen, celebrities, and people who like a good experience. Very nice mixed crowd of professionals makes for a great happy hour. Cocktails are pricey... More

Both times I have visited DC it has been fantastic! It is super clean and friendly. I like knowing that foreign visitors get this view of America when they come. Having been to several other countrie's government homes, I think DC is the best. Everything is free, including bathrooms! Most countries charge you for both of these, if you can... More

The W Washington is a previously iconic DC hotel that is RIGHT NEXT TO THE WHITE HOUSE! It is extremely well situated very near the Mall and amidst the haloed halls of the Capital. Apart from that it has very friendly staff, and a lovely lounge area. The restaurants, especially the outdoor one overlooking the Mall, has good food. I... More

This has become my regular stop while in DC for business. The hotel is one of the best located in the city - across from the Treasury building and a block from the White House.
