Stayed at the JW three nights in September 2014. Easy check in even on a busy day. Very nice room. Great urban location that is close to every DC attraction. Had breakfast at the hotel very nice attentive staff in the coffee shop.

This hotel was in a great location, close to dining, the metro, and the sights! The concierge sent up champagne and chocolate covered strawberries after my husband had her help him find us dinner reservations, so sweet! Kids loved the indoor pool and hubby loved the fitness center. Staff was super nice and helpful!

This hotel is a perfect location for all of the downtown DC sights. It is within walking distance of just about every monument and museum in the city. There are several restaurants within walking distance, too. The rooms are nicely appointed, although on the small side. However, smaller sized rooms is what I usually expect for a city hotel.

I decided to stay at the J.W. Marriott in Washington because of its excellent location, which put me within walking distance of many daytime meetings. Unfortunately, its location is one of the few good things I can say about the hotel. I was really looking forward to trying this particular J.W. Marriott, as it’s the original -- so you think...

You can't beat the location. Lobby is beautiful and in-house amenities are great. Wonderful gym and sauna. Only issue has been unfortunate room service. Three meal orders so far and each one has been delivered with missing food and/or drinks. One time it took three tries just to get a Pepsi.

We would absolutely stay here again. Very pleasant staff who looked us in the eyes when they spoke to us. Location is very close to sight seeing options. A quick walk to the Metro. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Lobby was spacious and welcoming.

This is a very nice, upper-end hotel in a great location; one block north of the mall, and one block east of the White House. Request a view...wish I had. People in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Everywhere I went was very clean. This is a very good hotel, I would certainly stay here again.

This location is within walking distrance to the Washington Monument, the Mall, Lincoln Memorial, White House, Vietnam Wall, Metro Center of the subway, shopping, fine dining, fast food, etc. I stayed in room 346 and the view was the "court yard" of the hotel - which was very dissappointing. I was there for 3 days of meeting. The meetings were... More

arrived in Washington from New York. the city's wide roads, the sense of space was welcoming. and the moment I entered the Hotel, I realized that the property reflected the capital city's sense of expanse. its open voluminous lobby filled by amazingly bright lights and the front office tucked on one side to ensure that the feeling of space does...

The rooms are fine, though on the small and ordinary side for a JW Marriott. They are limited by a 1960s-era building with relatively small windows. The lighting is good for a hotel room. The heating/cooling fan is a bit loud for a luxury hotel, but it's constant, so it didn't affect my sleep. The beds are nice but don't... More
