Great hotel, but not for the faint hearted! Definately for the young and trendy and very very hip! The place be in Washington I think, especially on a Saturday night. DJ in the lobby and hip and happening in the rooftop bar.

This place is very nicely located, lovely located. The POV bar at 11th floor is great. Cocktails are nice. Room was small, too hip for me and I am an educated customer/traveller, but that space is limited. Turnover of people is huge so maybe this is a reason that sometimes you can find some empty cola cans in the elevator...... More

The location cannot be beat...RIGHT across the street from where the line forms for White House tour. Again, great location. The rooms, however, are small. Felt cramped and crowded with our family. We like to stay in top-notch locations and properties with comfortable amenities. We're just not "W" people-- too hip for my tastes! No other complaints. The POV rooftop... More

If when you book a hotel one of your concerns is about your sleep quality, this is not the hotel for you. Pretty much everything else is great, but a guest's sleep quality is not on their priority list. I have already stayed in 2 other W hotels and I was fully aware of the nightclub atmosphere of the chain.... More

I've just returned from the W Washington DC. The property is beautifully restored and pairs historic features with the modern design expected from a W. The lobby is impressive and is filled with bold designer furniture. Check in was a breeze but as a Platinum SPG member we were only given a one category upgrade. Disappointing but expected from the... More

Gorgeous rooms, perfect location, amazing rooftop bar. You just have to ignore all the DC folk trying to be too cool in the lobby and at the bar, and don't let the dark hallways bother you... We plan to stay here on all future trips to DC!

I stayed at the W four nights with a group of colleagues in DC on business. Since I used to live in DC, I was elected to choose the hotel, and sold this one to the rest of the group based on its fabulous location literally across the street from the White House and fantastic rooftop bar. While it may... More

We took a trip to Washington for my husband's birthday and stayed here. having never been to DC before this hotel was in the perfect place to visit all the sights on foot. The view from the rooftop bar of the White House was wonderful - esp lit up at night. We were given a great room with a good... More

Unbelievable experience. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the W and had an amazing experience. The staff was fantastic. Cody with managment was extremely attentive to our questions and went above and beyond the call of duty. Cody helped make our anniversary the special day we had anticipated.

Recently hosted a company event at the W and everything turned out great. The location is unbeatable, the food was delicious, the meeting rooms were great as was the catering. Rooms are small but beautiful, rooftop deck is fun all throughout hte day with amazing views, and reaturant on the first floor has great food.
