I've stayed here multiple times and can vouch for the earlier reviewer's kudos on the doorman. Don't know his name, but I do recognize one that is shoulders above the rest of the staff. I think the bldg is a conversion of an older hotel. I don't know how the rooms were originally, but note that current rooms are on... More

Hello ezraulo, Thank you so much for your review and your shout-out to our doorman. We take great pride in the service we provide our guests and will be sharing this review with our staff. Our building is a remodel of the District’s historic Hotel Washington which did limit our ability to change the structural interior and exterior. But that... More

We chose the W based on its location. I must admit we got a little scared after reading the reviews that we wouldn't be able to sleep because of the noise from POV, the rooftop bar. However I am so so glad to report that we didn't hear a thing. We stayed ok the 5th floor far away from the... More

Don't expect a quiet room! You'll hear EVERYTHING from neighbors talking (and more) to deep bass from the roof club on weekend nights (regardless of your floor). Staff is very accommodating and did their best, but it's an old building without any sound proofing between rooms. If you're not there to party, find another hotel.

I'm a platinum member with starwood, so I'm not sure if I received special treatment or not because of my status. But nonetheless, it was a great experience. Things I'd like to note about the people: There's a really popular rooftop bar at the W Washington DC, so the higher level floors can get a lot of noise during the... More

My husband and I stayed here over President's day weekend. Our experience with checking-in was by far the best feature of our stay.

From the luxurious lobby to the champagne greeting, this hotel by far exceeded our expectations. Stayed at many W hotels, but this one really sets the bar higher.
