Beautiful hotel, rooms not that small, as others travelers had mentioned. Walking distance from all mayors attractions. Hop on Hop bus Stop at the corner of the Hotel, two metro stations near, Metro Station &White House. Ours rooms 612 & 614 were very quiet and had a view to the hotel entrance. I recommend the APPs Open Table for pin... More

We are not the right customers for the W. We’re the kind of guests that likes quiet, not speakers blaring and bass thumping outside the hotel door—or our window, as was our case—at 11:00 P.M. We don’t need hairs in the bathtub upon checking in, nor to find a non-hotel pen on the floor after the room was supposedly vacuumed.... More

The location is phenomenal, bar scene fun to join. Staff is polite and helpful. But the rooms are poorly made, bathroom is very basic and not private. For what they charge the rooms should be much better. But if you're fine with having a basic room to crash right after late night drinks it's a good option.

We recently stayed here on two occasions in the past two months. Once for our daughter's college graduation and once for a brief business trip. Both times this Hotel did the trick. When we stayed the first time we had both sets of grandparents and two sets of young adults . The older group was able to walk everywhere very... More

Was in town for work and was lucky enough to stay here. I got a good rate. Had I not, it might have been a little ovepriced. The rooms are a little small but the location is great. The rooftop bar has amazing views of DC. I would definitely stay here again.

The W Washington has a very modern and interesting design and a great ambience. What sets this apart from other W Hotels and other hotels in Washington is that the location is just amazing. After walking around the city you can relax on the rooftop bar POV, enjoy great drinks and gaze at some of the most significant landmarks in... More

My husband and I stayed at the W for three nights, beginning on July 19, 2014. As others have stated, the location can't be beat, right next to the famous Willard Hotel and close to the White House, Washington Memorial, Metro Station, restaurants and more. Our room was small (queen size bed) and faced the courtyard and the windows have... More

We stayed here for four nights in July after scoring a great deal on Hotwire. As everyone says, the location is truly ideal. The Metro Center stop is only 0.3 mile away, and several restaurants and shops are located within a 5-10 minute walk. The White House is just around the corner. The rooms were nice, but a little on... More

...I can't believe they still charge for internet use in the guest rooms?? What hotel in 2014 charges for wifi???? Now, getting off my soap box, this hotel is actually pretty awesome. Very nice rooms (quite funky) and cool public areas. In particular the roof terrace in the evening is amazing - with view of the Washington Monument and the... More

Took advantage of the book 2 nights with the 3rd night free deal. Had room on the 8th floor, could just see the chimneys of the White House from the bedroom window! Modern glass bathroom might not be to everyone's taste. Fantastic views from the roof top bar on the 10th floor but it seemed to be visited by a... More
