We were on the 15th floor and had an awesome view of Washington Monument and the Tidal Basin! Excellent location only a 10 -15 minute walk to all DC sights! Staff and hotel were fabulous! The kids love the pool after a hard day of sightseeing! Kids also loved Movie night in Lobby with popcorn! Very family friendly hotel!

Having stayed in many hotels in DC and in many Marriotts, I give this hotel high marks for the things it gets right. It is in a great location off Pennsylvania Avenue in the heart of the tourist area. This is one of the few hotels I have visited where you put your floor number in the elevator to call... More

Its my first time to Washington DC and a hotel with good location its what I am looking for. JW Marriott has a splendid location with museums and place of interest around the corner. The room was pretty clean and the bed was comfortable. Its a pity that they have to charge Wifi in the room. I have amazing experience... More

Wonderful location and so close to government buildings, Smithsonian and mall, monuments and some great eating establishments! Very busy place but meeting facilities are great as was banquet food. Very enjoyable with great elevators - choose floor before entering elevator so not wasting time hitting every floor!

Unfortunately, the JW Marriott Washington DC is taking advantage of their great location at the expense of customers and their brand name as a supposedly the most superior level Marriott. Our recent stay was disappointing in several ways. We are Marriott gold level and have many comparisons with other Marriotts around the world. First we were unable to retrieve messages... More

I booked the JW Marriott for a family vacation to DC. The hotel's location was great. However, if a 2+ mile walk is too difficult (i.e., young kids, etc), then you may want to save some money and stay somewhere else. The hotel is ~0.5 miles away from a number of attractions, but I found hitting more than one museum... More

I loved that this hotel was within walking distance of pretty much everything. I had requested early check-in and when we arrived at the hotel our room was ready. We were given a newly renovated room on the 7th floor facing Penn Ave. I would say the upgrade for the Penn Ave view was worth it. There were many nights... More

We loved this brand new luxury hotel with best location to sightsee DC. It was beautiful and spotless with very comfy,clean beds. The kids loved the indoor pool where all the kids have a blast at night after a long day. And the jacuzzi feels fabulous. The location was just blocks away from the White House, the Smithsonian,.,the National mall... More
