This was my third visit to this hotel and I can definitely say I enjoyed is as well as my first. Unfortunately, the POV lounge and J&G Steakhouse were both closed during my visit but I took full advantage of all of the other hotel amenities and close by attractions. The room was nice and cozy and W beds are... More

I chose this hotel in late August because an earlier stay in June had been so good. OMG. It could not have changed more. Setting aside, for a moment, that they have lost their steakhouse franchise and are renovating the restaurant at the same time as they have closed their POV bar on the roof (overlooking the Whitehouse), the service...

Hello, First may I thank you for your honest feedback and taking time to share your experience with us. It disappoints me to hear your stay was not agreeable and did not meet your standards. While we were indeed refreshing our outlets it is in no way an excuse to comprimise service. I have addressed the entire staff as well... More

We were only here one night. The best thing was the location, very close to the White House. We did the Big Bus tour and the main stop was right around the corner. The front desk was very accommodating when I asked for a rollaway, they offered us a larger room without a view or stay in smaller one with... More

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

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
