We didn't stay in the hotel, however we were advised to check out this bar by a friend that lives in DC. Knowing my wifes fondness for rooftop bars, I had to check it out. Great spot with views of the National Mall and you feel like you are right on top of the White House. service was great and... More

The W in DC is around the corner from the White House. Fantastic location. In fact from the very popular rooftop bar at the W you have beautiful views of the White House and DC. The rooms are clean and spacious. The service is great. The only average part of our stay was the hotel restaurant which was just ok.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in late August in a 1-br suite. The location of this property is really great, walking distance to white-house, transportation, and great views from the room (ours overlooked the washington monument). When we arrived our original suite was not ready, so the front-desk upgraded us to a better one (with free wi-fi... More

When making reservations, we were alerted that the rooftop bar was closed, undergoing renovations. But upon checking into our room, the 10th floor, we heard jack hammering unending!!!!!!! Calling down to the front desk, we found out it would last all day (Friday, before Labor Day....we were here thru Labor Day. No problem, I thought, it's Labor Day weekend, they... More

Stayed here for only 3 nights at the end of our honeymoon. Was a really nicely decorated hotel! Downstairs and bar area were nice. Room was also nice. Didn't have a view but we weren't really in the room except for sleeping, so didn't really need one. Location was amazing, right opposite the White House so a short walk for... More

I stayed at the W for one night last week. The rooms were very nice and clean. The staff was super friendly. They have "Whenever/whatever" concierge service which was very good. A guy named Merlin I think helped book Segway tour and it was the best part of out tour. So thank you Merlin. I would like to thank Mr.Ermias... More

Location is great, 1.5 miles to Union Station. About thousand feet from The White House. 1 mile from Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool. A trendy spot for evening and late night drinks and music (Rooftop bar is a must, best views downtown DC), however I never heard any noise from my room. Rooms are super trendy and modern... More

The hotel was under construction when we arrived. The room is a bit funky and a mix of traditional Washington with modern California style rooms. The room is small but comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. The shower is glassed in and just off the bedroom. I think they have made good use of the small room. Closet space is... More
