The W has an excellent location for business or leisure. The basic room is very small. I found it acceptable for solo business travel, but it would have been uncomfortable for two people. Given the cost, it is not a great value. The bed and bathroom are well designed. Room service was good (prompt and reasonably priced). Luckily the club-vibe... More

Hello AvidTraveler941, Thank you for your review. We do have the perfect location, for business or pleasure, in Washington DC with a short walk to many of the major landmarks. Because of the historic nature of our building we were not able to change the structure of the rooms. We hope you come back to visit us again soon and... More

First, the good points: the hotel is clean, the employees are efficient and friendly (not gushing, but not imperious either), the location is great, and the rooms appear to have been recently remodeled and are also quite clean, with nice bathrooms. The rooms, however, are fairly small. This wasn't a problem for me, who stayed four nights on business and... More

Bathroom privacy is non-existent. The bathroom door slides, but doesn't close completely, and the walls of the bathroom do not reach the ceiling. The lighting in the room was painfully inadequate. Putting on makeup was extremely frustrating and almost impossible. The lighting in the rest room in the lobby was worse. The stalls were so dark, I couldn't use them.... More

A suite where the sofa is old and durty, a patio where a guest of the hotel cannot book a table to meet with his client, (certain) employees' behaviour close to the unacceptable, and, and, and... W pretends to create a new style, the problem is that they do not have any style. Just inadequate considering the price charged. We... More

This hotel is in the middle of all the sites you would want to see. Practically across the street from the White House! The hotel has all the charm that you would expect in such a historic area with the finishing touches the W is known for.

Nice hotel but room was a bit small. We called 2 weeks prior to arriving to make sure that we would have two beds and were told they were all out but we could get a rollaway. The night before we called again and were told there was no way a rollaway could fit in that room and they were... More

Ok, this hotel is super awesome, then again, my aunt paid for it. I personally don't pay W prices, but am MORE than happy to enjoy it when I can. I loved the location, before 6 pm as it seemed everything right around here closed early. It was a quick walk to Lincoln memorial and beautiful parks. We came here... More

We stayed here over Easter and arrived mid morning after a red eye flight from the West to a room ready for us. We were checked in very quickly and efficiently and headed up to our room. The lobby of the hotel was gorgeous and inviting, and there was acoustic music some of the evenings. The concierge was helpful and... More

I always loved the chic decor in the Living Room, we had enjoyed cocktails there when the W DC first opened, and also at the Rooftop when it used to be the Hotel Washington, but this was our first time staying at the W DC.
