This hotel is located right in the heart of where you want to be in order to see D.C. The White House is a 5 minute walk, and the National Mall less than 10. The lobby is very grand and fantastic. The staff is very friendly and helpful and make you feel welcome. The room was just average. A little... More

This was a nice property, no real complaints. A little surprised that for a JW property, the bathroom had a shower/tub combo and not really a lot of room to navigate. 1 person is fine, 2 is actually crowded. Compared to say the JW Marriott in Chicago -- very different in terms of space. JW M in Chicago was phenomenal.... More

We went to D.C. to see friends for the weekend and the hotel made it feel like a real vacation. The gym and pool are nice, the breakfast is really, really good. It's close to lots of restaurants and shops and most of all it's close to the Mall and the White House.

Hotel was wonderful, lobby was huge, lots of security late at night when we came in (2am). Everyone very friendly and helpful, valet parking was fast and easy. Hotel is close to everything in DC and if you don't want to use your car you can either take a taxi or Uber to get around. Bed was very comfortable and... More

The JW Marriott was host to a conference. The conference rate was $309.00 per night. The hotel was full and on a very late check-in I was offered a handicapped room. The room was recently remodeled with many nice upgrades. The lighting was very good, the desk work area was large and bathroom was newly remodeled too. The room was... More

As most reviewers of this hotel will say, it's in a great location within minutes of many popular attractions, restaurants and theaters. The lobby is grand and beautiful. We checked in on a Thursday evening and had only a short wait at the check in desk. The elevator system is similar to NY Marriott Marquis and I found it more... More

The JW Marriott's location and lobby amenities are fantastic. Otherwise this hotel is average at best. The understaffed reception desk was pleasant, noting that this JW is the flagship and original JW Marriott - I'm not sure what makes this the flagship. The rooms are small but well appointed, updated, and very clean. The elevators are slow and it seemed... More

The JW Marriott is close to local attractions - you can walk to the National Mall. I stayed with my family around the holidays, and we were able to walk over to see the 50 state tree + lights in about 10 minutes. The room was comfortable. We stayed on an upper floor, so we didn't run into the issues... More

I stay at this property infrequently on business trips. This is a completely adequate hotel with a few shortcomings. The rooms are small, the workout facility seem outdated, and the elevator system is a bit quirky. The restrooms are small, with barely enough space to open the door. It appears the rooms on the upper floors are being renovated, including... More

The Marriott is in a perfect location if you're looking to explore the capital city. Just 3 minutes walk to the White House, and within 10 minutes of the wonderful museums on the National Mall. The weekend rates are also really good at under $200 a night, although basics such as wifi and breakfast add considerably to this. The rooms... More
