Disclosure - we are big Marriott loyalists, and stayed at this property primarily with our points. This was a family vacation with our teenagers on their spring break. The location can't be beat. A couple of blocks from White House, few blocks from Washington memorial and the mall. Plenty of restaurants and such in area. We walked everywhere - never... More

This Marriot is located right on Pennsylvania Avenue, within easy walking distance of the Smithstonian Museums, National Gallery ,the Holocaust Museum ;it's about i.5 miles from the Supreme Court and Capitol. The rooms are large, nicely decorated, and unlike many hotels today, there is a coffee maker in the room. Meals in the main dining room are quite good and... More

Felt like I was staying in a basement. Dark: first floor room had a "view" of a wall/roof that filled the bottom half of the window; very little light got in. Damp: bathroom "fan" is not actually a fan; bathroom steams up when the shower is on and you can't see the mirror to get ready. That's probably why the... More

We stayed at the JW Marriott for five nights (April 1-6) during Spring Break. The location is great. You are two blocks from the White House as well as two block from the Metro Center where you can catch most lines. If you decide to take the Big Bus Tour there is a stop right across the street at The... More

Both my husband and I are fans of Marriott and are platinum with their loyalty program. Unfortunately at a recent stay in this hotel (April 5th) we experienced several disappointments. The most extreme was the valet parking situation. Evidently on Sunday mornings the valet service desk shuts their phones off because they get too many calls from 10am - 2pm.... More

DanielMcKeon, Manager at JW Marriott Washington DC, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay. I'm very sorry about your valet experience. Time is critical to our JW customers and I'm sorry we took yours when we should be maximizing it for you to do other things. Clearly the processes we demand crumbled that morning. I will ensure that this lesson is shared and that this... More

This property is in a FANTASTIC location. Every member of their team was incredibly helpful and friendly. The room was a little small (especially the bathroom) but we weren't there much so it didn't matter much. It was very clean and had a nice view. The elevator system takes a bit of getting used to. Overall we really enjoyed our... More

I would compare this hotel with a regular marriot... Not a JW. Rooms are ok and clean (though a bit small), however I am used to a higher standard for a JW. Room is hardly decorated, hotel feels a bit old. I guess the room could use a bit of color. In general it's a fine place to stay, good... More

Stayed here for a conference and was well-located from the convention center with no more than 1 mile walk. But it rained so much that I learned how much taxis hate the drop off/pick up location. So congested and the staff parks cars seemingly intentionally to not make the flow good there. Now but busy hotel with little sense of... More

We stayed at the JW Marriott for business and pleasure last week and it was delightful! We have stayed before but this time, the convenient location was very helpful due to a leg injury I had with limited mobility. The room and bed was very comfortable and quiet (we prefer the rooms that face away from the street - not... More
