As a Platinum Premier Rewards Member I've stayed at many JW Properties around the world and this one is more like a Marriott. I was upgraded to a hospitality suite but I didn't understand how uncomfortable a Murphy bed would sleep. This property is ideal for business travelers or people sight seeing. A taxi ride from the airport should cost... More

We booked two rooms thinking they had King size beds. We were assigned two double bed rooms. The rooms were very clean and nice but had standard amenities similar to a Doubletree, without the complimentary cookies or free wi-fi. We spent 4 nights here, and except for the location there was nothing noteworthy, not even my daily newspaper was delivered... More

Great location. Great value. Spacious, clean room. The staff could not have been nicer, friendlier, or more accommodating. We had a toilet issue, was fixed within an hour of being reported. Would definitely stay there again.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel this past Friday evening. I picked the JW Marriott because it had the best location to be within walking distance to all of the national monuments. We were greeted promptly, we had upgraded to a corner suite and they had two available. The desk clerk let us pick between the 7th and... More

Stayed here for a long weekend and overall it was very nice with a great lobby and rooms were good. For the high price of this hotel though I would not have expected the mold on the shower curtain nor the shower faucet what had the hot and cold reversed. In all the hotel was nice but keep in mind... More

We met our daughter and grandchildren in DC for a mini-vacation and stayed (in adjoining rooms) at this hotel. Must preface this review by saying that this hotel is near everything - hop-on hop-off double decker bus tours are right across the street, as is the White House; wonderful restaurants, shops, etc., are all within walking distance. We also took... More

Traveled for business and brought the family. Great location, clean, and nicely appointed hotel with a generally helpful staff. As others have noted, the rooms are on the small side and the bathrooms are tiny. Our room had a problem with the a/c and we had the "engineer" visit several times during our 5-day visit. The first time he took... More

Like others have stated, this hotel is beautiful and centrally located. Service is great and check-in simple. Aside from the usual Washington sights there are dozens of great restaurants within easy walking distance. The only downside is the costly in-room Wi-Fi!

The location is right in the heart of attractions and you can walk anywhere! The staff is wonderful and concierge lounge for rewards members is definitely excellent! The rooms are plenty big enough to be functional and compare to any other city size room. Bathrooms small but will be corrected soon with renovation

The staff is wonderful and you are close to everything! The room was superb! You can walk to all the attractions, restaurants, landmarks, museums. The tourist buses stop is one block ahead. We will definitely stay here again.
