If you want a drink and dinner, this is nice. If you want to spend any time here, STAY AWAY. The Management and Security staff are the most arrogant, non-apologetic and self centered cover your back people on the planet.

This was my first experience of the W hotel brand and I wasn't disappointed. I would not have normally picked this hotel, but the conference I was attending was at the hotel and it seemed sensible to stay on site, rather than elsewhere. The welcome after a very long flight was warm, friendly and very helpful- not just at the... More

I stayed at W Hotel for three nights from September 23. It was my first time at W and I was visiting DC on a business. The location was quite nice and and a part of 5-star hotel district near White House. I was very welcomed by the receptionist. I felt a bit sick when I arrived in DC but... More

In Washington it is all about location for visitors since the main goal is to visit as many of the museums and sights as possible. The W Hotel has a great location next to the Treasury Building and one block from the White House. The rooms are very nicely appointed and the staff is very friendly and always smiling and... More

Had a fabulous view from our seventh floor, bare weird room. Shag carpeting in typical W style. Frosted glass separates shower from bedroom. Minuscule hair dryer. You can hear every sound from surrounding rooms. I guess I'm not W personality. This hotel, other than the view from the roof, is just a little bit outré for me. Our room while... More

Dear Adnil, I do thank you for your contribution in sharing your experience about your latest visit at the W. I do appreciate that the hotel room fittings do not fully meet your expectation or style. W brand is truly about sophistication and modern outfit and design, somehow flirty. However, we pride ourselves to deliver an outstanding service and provide... More

If you're in DC to have a great time, the W is the place. It has a super cool bar on the roof with a bird's eye view of the White House and club music to add to the ambience. The rooms are typical W style, the steak house in the lobby is great, and the concierge are very helpful.... More

Hotel location can't get any better. However, our air conditioner went out on the second day. After they "fixed it" it still didn't work. They "upgraded" our room to one that had a working AC; however, the room was on the third floor next to a noisy street and right above the entrance to an extremely busy night club (POV).... More

This hotel provided a great base for a business trip and event (at the Newseum - highly recommended). It has the most incredible views across Washington and into the White House. The reception is probably a bit 'bling' for some tastes, but the rooms are lovely with a REALLY comfy bed and fab 'bliss' products in the bathroom.
