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.

My husband & I just returned from a long weekend in DC. We stayed at the JW Marriott primarily because of it's location. We were able to walk most everywhere; local sites, great bars & restaurants, shops and the Metro station. The hotel was clean, staff were friendly and helpful. We had a corner room and although a bit small,... More

We visited on a family vacation and both my daughter and I were very pleased with the hotel. We arrived before noon on our check-in day and only expected to drop our bags before exploring the city. Mylene at the front desk told us she had a room available and we were able to check-in early, leaving the remainder of... More

The hotel was perfectly situated very close to multiple landmarks (White House, Smithsonian, National Archives, etc) and within a very short (10-15 min max) walking distance of the Metro. The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to treat me as a valued guest. The room was nicely appointed and well designed for its space.

Third time to DC in recent year but first stay at JW. Check-in was swift and our room was large and inviting. The hotel is located within walking distance of every major attraction including the White House, Capital, Smithsonian Museums, monuments and Chinatown. The concierge was helpful and knowledgable, from setting me up with a tour to Mount Vernon to... More
