Went for two fabulous days to celebrate a big birthday. The staff at the J W was so very gracious and welcoming. They sent up wine, cheese and crackers and chocolate covered strawberries to the room along with a card that they all signed. That doesn't just happen any where!!! It does at the "J W". There isn't a downside... More

The hotel, actually appeared old and in need of a style update. Other than that, the good things include coffee in the room (plus a Starbucks on the lower level), the location was great (within walking to most things and close to the Metro) the hotel was clean and our bed was comfortable, but the bathroom was ridiculously small. Our... More

I was excited for our visit to the Marriott in DC but was a little disappointed. Its location is perfect (Pennsylvania Ave and walking distance from the Washington Monument, the White House and the Smithsonian) The room, while very clean, was much smaller than I anticipated. The bathroom was so tiny that if you were sitting on the toilet and... More

Although this hotel is in a great location for walking to all the sites, it desperately needs a makeover. The price was comparable to other hotels in the area and I gravitate towards Marriott chain because of the points, but I was disappointed in this hotel. The rooms are "tired", the carpet really worn, the bathrooms are small and not... More

I’m very concerned that we couldn’t check you in at our guaranteed check in time of 4pm. I can certainly understand how this has left you with a negative impression of the hotel. At the JW Marriott, we truly value the time of our guests, and certainly want to ensure its not wasted in any way. Also, you will be... More

Overall I like the Marriott hotel experience 0- I collect their points, and often stay in their hotels for business. The JW Marriott in DC is unfortunately disappointing. I was expecting more from their original / flagship hotel and I actually found the service here to be below average. For example it was pouring rain on one of the days,... More

We (family of 4) stayed one night for a quick trip to DC with small children. Noon arrival and valet parking was tightly packed but smooth (those guys are experts), and check-in was quick, pleasant and efficient, although room was not ready till 4. Check-in staff deftly handled a reservation mix-up with pleasure, and our bags were stored for us.... More

I recently booked at the JW Marriot for Friday through Sunday. Check in was at 4pm so after working all day on Friday after driving 3 hours we arrived and were surprised to find out our hotel room was not ready. No big deal, we went to grab something to eat and hung out at the bar at the Hamilton... More

We picked this hotel for its excellent location and we were pleasantly surprised to find it exceeded our expectations. It is in a great location. It is within close walking distance to many DC landmarks and it is just a block or so from the White House. The rates for our room were very competitive, in fact, after staying here,... More

We had a very good conference experience in the JW. The location is perfect and with the Cherry Blossom Festival in full swing, very much appreciated. The staff was friendly and helpful but the business centre was dismal - no privacy and completely overpriced. Food was decent though the concierges' restaurant recommendation close to useless.

Arrived in our room yesterday, everything either covered in a layer of dust, or wiped down with a dirty cloth, or none of the above - finding finger prints and other body part prints on the tables and headboard. Management needs to give the cleaners more time in each room. Other than housekeeping, the room (ninth floor overlooking Penn ave)... More
