Sigh. W's are really hit or miss. Sometimes they work, sometimes not. If you are OK with what this hotel is -- a night club hot spot, more concerned with style than substance, with tiny rooms and impractical furnishings that will simply frustrate you -- then this hotel will be great for you. I stayed here for a one-night business... More

Pros - great location - comfortable bed - Acura Experience car took dropped us off at a couple of places during our week-long stay (it was low-season so the car was often free) - Doormen were very nice - Nice room decor Cons: - bathroom with frosted glass walls. Not good if you don't want others in the room to... More

I stayed in the W on Sunday August 21, 2011. Overall: great location, weird environment, and disappointing service. I can say this after having stayed at W's in NYC, Orlando, Hollywood, and Atlanta. Service wise this was the most disappointing. Pros: - Amazing location - next to Treasury building. Center of it all (only Obama has it better!). - IF... More

W Washington has only been around a couple years, so the hotel just shines of that sheik, modern design, while located in a building that's much, much older. The lobby is rather quaint, complete with floor to ceiling design, with a very intimate feeling. Check-In is done in a very personal way, and everyone one you meet along the way... More

Okay, so very few surprises here - it's a W hotel, so things are nice, if a little pricey. This was a last-minute trip for me, so I didn't have time to do anything like make reservations in advance on their rooftop deck (overlooking the White House) or get a decent haircut before taking off. While the hotels "Whatever, Whenever"... More

We stayed at this hotel for the first time and absolutely loved it. It offers a lively and elegant artistic residence featuring a chic ambiance. It’s worth to see and to stay. We do love the design: the fantastic combination of classic style and modern glamour, with a hint of irony which is the most attractive. The location is fantastic,... More

Hi everlastingtrip, Thanks for your raving review. Glad you really enjoyed our facilities and decor. I totally agree that post summer thunderstorm the rooftop is the place to be (amazing pictures!). I hope you had a chance to swing by Bliss Spa as well. Safe travels! More

So we have stayed at a bunch of Ws (New Orleans, Hollywood, Montreal, NY) and we love(d) the chain but lately the service is just going downhill and getting to the point of being annoying. Yes, it's a new hotel and swanky and beautiful - but enough with the attitude of the staff. This DC trip we thought we'd stay... More

The W is a very trendy hotel a couple of blocks from the White House and behind the Willard Hotel - a nice location. The front desk staff were very polite and helpful at check in. They gave me the type of room I requested. Room service food was very good and was delivered within the 30 minute time frame... More

I stayed here a few weeks ago on a business trip and quickly fell in love with the place. I always liked the decor of the W chain of hotel but have largely found them to be a disappointment. However this hotel I am glad to say is most definitely an exception to the rule. Everything from the shaggy pile... More
