We stayed at this property for 3 nights on 10,000 SPG points per night during our trip to Washington D.C. during the Memorial Day weekend. I liked the hotel’s convenience because it was right in the middle of downtown, 2 blocks from the White House and a few blocks from the National Mall and within walking distance to most attractions...

Recently, I went on a trip to DC with my Mom and we loved this hotel. The location is unbeatable, in the midst of all things central to DC. The staff is very helpful. The decor is just the right amount of trendy and classic. Other things... Bliss Spa, had a manicure there, they couldn't accommodate our messages because they... More

The hotel couldn't be in a better location. Wonderful room and great service. Only negative is how expensive it is but you get what you pay for! I would definitely stay here again. It is located a block from the white house.

Although this review is a bit delayed I thought I should post anyway. Will be returning to the DC area again this August and was reminded of my disappointment when staying at the hotel last August. Firstly, I had paid a rate for a fabulous room with double beds but because I had requested an adjoining room with relatives, who... More

We went to the W using our Starwood points for 2 nights. For the Starwood members, this hotel asked for the cheapest number of points to stay in Central Washington DC and the location was great.

A hotel with a great reputation and the building is an architecture marvel. Great location. Its roof terrace was highly recommended for its spectacular landmark views, so We stopped by to see this highly appraised bar during the Memorial Weekend. The terrace bar itself was initially crowded with almost half of the empty tables with "reserved' signs on in the... More

From the decor, to the customer service and very functional rooms, this is a terrific Hotel. Yes - the wait staff in some of the bars (namely the Lobby Bar) are a little too cool for the average human being, and slightly disinterested in your needs, however overall, I would be returning in a heartbeat to this location.
