3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is where you want to stay if you are going for a family vacay and doing all the touristy things. White House is down the street, 15 min walk to Capitol,Smithsoniian museums, Bureau of Exchange (money factory) and 5 min walk to Ford's Theater and house where Lincoln died, and really good food. It really was all about the... More

The property lives on its location so if you are only looking to sleep somewhere and you can get a good rate stay here. However if you want any services or want to eat/drink at the bar then this is not the hotel for you. After two less than satisfactory stays and having to fight for my Marriott Points that... More

I spent Saturday night here with my 2 teenagers. It is a great location and we are just blocks from the Mall and all of the memorials. The hotel is on Pennsylvania Avenue just a few blocks from the White House. The rooms are small but we had an incredible view overlooking Pennsylvania Ave. Rooms are clean and as always... More

This is the perfect place for a weekend getaway, especially if you're visiting the Capitol/Mall/White House attractions. It's also a short walk to the Metro Center metro stop, so it's easy to connect to other parts of the greater DC area. The lobby is beautiful, in that modern, convention hotel way. Reception was friendly and efficient, including valet parking. Our... More

We arrived at the JW Marriot for a family weekend in DC. The valet and bellman did a fantastic job, and they were all very friendly the entire weekend. We checked in at the front desk and everything went smooth. We headed up to our room and the bellman went over the details of the room. After we settled in,... More

Please allow me to apologize for the inconveniences that you experience during your stay regarding the room being uncomfortably warm. I certainly understand how frustrating it might be to have a hotel room that is not comfortable to rest or sleep in. One of our top priorities is to provide each and every guest with safe and comfortable accommodations. Unfortunately,... More

A great hotel in most ways, but then there is the problem with the Internet. Not to be picking on this hotel (many luxury hotels seem to do this) but to get some idea of how outdated their Internet policy and service is, you need go no further than to read their "Internet & phone access" policy on a card...

This was our first experience at a JW Marriott so we have nothing to compare it with. I have stayed at many other Marriott's and to me, other than the lobby there was not much that set it at a higher standard. The rooms were clean but on the small size. The bathroom was also very small and when the... More

This is my second review of this property, and I found it had slipped a bit since my last stay. Checkin was easy and friendly. I was given a standard room, which was generously sized, with plenty of space to lay out a suitcase and room to move around easily. There is a great lighting, plenty of plugs for devices... More

I understand this was the original "JW" Marriott. If so, it is overdue for a refresh. Fixtures are rusting, ceiling tiles were falling, and furniture is all looking a bit worn. The food was also not that great - the crab cake sandwich is not up to local standards. All in all you can find a lot nicer hotel rooms... More

We stayed at the JW for five nights, and had a wonderful experience. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this hotel (which is rare for me). The location is excellent and within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. There are many good restaurants close by. The bar in the hotel is nice. The staff were all... More
