September 27, 2014 Booked two rooms for wedding preparation. At check-in we asked for adjoining rooms and were told one room was ready and other wasn't but to go to POV have a drink and come back in an hour. Waitress was NOT friendly...when we asked about the new renovations that were recently made to the rooftop POV, she actually... More

You can't be in a better hotel to see the sights of Washington DC than the W. Your are 1/2 block from the White House, 1/2 block from Old Ebbitts Grill, a couple blocks from the Metro and a short walk to the mall. The hotel itself isn't quite as funky as my previous visits to W Hotels and that... More

My wife and I booked a suite here for our wedding night and have done a couple of birthdays here since. Every time we stay at the W, we have a great time. I love how modern and comfortable the hotel is, particularly the bed and pillows. It is definitely my favorite hotel in DC.

All of the W properties go out of there way to be hip and trendy, so it probably required a bit of creativity of turn the venerable old Hotel Washington into a W, but the Starwood Group managed to pull it off admirably. First off, the location is ideal, less than a block from the White House and a walk... More

I had a great stay at the W Washington Hotel; superb location. I flew into DCA and had a taxi ride that seemed to be maybe 6-7 minutes. So different from many cities I visit where the treks can be 30 minutes or longer; of course if you miss a long taxi ride you could fly into Dulles. I read... More

Though the "W" style does not match the physical space this hotel occupies, this is still a quality place to stay. The location is great - for business or pleasure. The rooftop bar really is a must-visit place on a beautiful Washington evening. The rooms are nice and typical if W Hotel quality. I would give this place higher marks... More

I'll start with the hotel's best feature... LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION... This hotel is literally around the corner from the White House so given that my family and I were taking a WH tour we couldn't have asked for a better location.. It's convenient to all the monuments and attractions. That said, there are PLENTY of other options nearby including a... More
