This hotel is in a prime location near all of the major sights which I'm sure factors into the price. The JWs are expected to be a notch above other marriots. I did stay in a 3 star hotel the day before and my bathroom in the 3 star was bigger and better than this hotel. My colleague and I... More

Title says it all. Location was fantastic for walking to all the monuments and getting around town. Rooms were clean and tidy though I was disappointed that when I asked for a more firm pillow I was told that I had the only style they had in the hotel.for a large hotel and chain this was a little disappointing. Bed... More

The Marriott has an excellent location on Pennsylvania Ave and my room on the 8th floor had an excellent view of the Washington Monument. I used the app for check in but you still need to go to the front desk so I'm not sure of the value of the app. Everything in the room was clean, fresh and in... More

I've stayed at this hotel every time that I've visited DC since 2002 - I probably won't stay there again. Unlike previous trips, this time round I had my family with me. Although the hotel is impressive, well positioned etc, I was very disappointed by: (i) the expensive wifi (even if you just wanted to check your emails in the... More

This is a smart well appointed hotel. However the most important is its location. It is very close to the metro but that’s only if you really want to use it because everywhere is walkable from the hotel, the Capitol at one end of the national mall to the Lincoln memorial at the other end. Dupont Circle and its restaurants... More

I understand demand and I am not the hardest critic in the world but when a hotel charges $400 + and is the flagship brand of the chain you expect more than a room which I would expect to find at a Fairfield. Here is the rundown: Location: By far the benefit of staying at this property and what saved... More

This hotel is top-notch in chic post-modern style. Perfect for conferences, meetings, special events... and the rooms are beyond comfortable, as if you're sleeping on a cloud :) Perfectly located next to the convention center, a few blocks from the metro station that will connect you with the rest of DC

Having traveled to Washington, DC, I've stayed in several local hotels. This time I was bringing a niece for her first experience in our nation's capitol. We arrived early, and we had to put our luggage in storage. But, because we were so close to the White House, we decided to take our time walking there. It was very exciting... More

Typical, featureless, large business hotel. I had a small room on the 11th floor. Facing internal air conditioning unit and other rooms. Little light or air. Two double beds were comfortable. Water pressure fantastic.

Our room at the JW Marriott smelled musty and it didn't improve with AC turned off or on. We complained and were moved to a different room while we were out for the evening. The "new" room was worse. Because it was late, we toughed it out for the night but it was still stinky the next day. The smell... More
