The stunning lobby of the W Washington takes a departure from the sleek black, modern sophistication of many of their urban counterparts. This is largely due to the historic building the hotel occupies. Visitors are greeted by a stunning two story high lobby stylishly but warmly furnished. The W bar is a significant component of the lobby attracting hotel guests... More

SPG (Starwood preferred guest) member disclosure. Firstly the staff from the porter to the concierge and front desk are excellent. They do and did all they can to help. On the rooftop the breakfast room is looking very tired along with the staff and the Russian lady host who seemed most displeased when we asked for the newspaper to read.... More

WoW, pretty much describes the WoW Suite at this hotel. My wife and I had the opportunity to slip away without the kids for a night down in DC. As I was chatting with the front desk at check-in, they picked up on this and upgraded us from the Fabulous Room to the WoW suite, which was a very welcome... More

I stayed at the Hotel for 3 nights. On the first night I went up to the restaurant and was told there would be at least a 1 hour wait for a Table. I was told I could wait in the bar which was extremely noisy. I went out to eat that night. Breakfast in this restaurant next morning was... More

The W blends the history of the building and the area with cool and modern touches throughout the lobby and the rooms. Great place to stay if touring the Smithsonian, the monuments, the White House, etc. Don't miss the rooftop for a drink and amazing views of the Treasury Building. Excellent staff and we will stay here again.

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.
