I would strongly recommend, if you are a fan of the JW Marriott brand that you read these reviews. I did before coming here so I came in with low expectations. As others have mentioned, the hotel is showing it's age and it is not like the other JW Marriott properties. I paid 169 a night and don't feel so... More

The location was great. Close to the museums and walking distance to a lot of DC attractions. Our room had great view of landmarks. One lady at the front desk was rude. I checked in with her. She did not give me any information on elevators, wifi connections, etc. On my check out day, we were charged everything in the... More

This hotel is all about location, though still a decent property it appears to need a refresh. In my opinion this is not up to my expectations of a JW and for the money I would go across the street to the Willard or W. Time for refurbishment and an update here.

I am currently sitting in my room at the JW Marriott Washington, DC and I will start with the negatives...and there are NONE! This is a great hotel! It is centrally located and close to the White House, which is where I had meetings. The rooms are quiet, clean, and comfortable. The bathrooms are a bit on the smaller side,... More

We had a great stay at the JW. Most everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. The staff was amazing and very helpful in all aspects. The breakfast buffet was delicious. Housekeeping was very attentive to details.

EVEN though this hotel is centrally located to many tourist places it is convenient nor accommodating. Stayed here on business. The JW bills itself as a "flagship" property for the Marriott brand. Sadly it is nothing more than a run-of-the-mill business hotel. The rooms are musty, outdated, cramped, poorly maintained and generally uncomfortable. One wipe with a washcloth and it... More

Just a super hotel. Staff was excellent. Location perfect for sight seeing. Rooms were very solid, although the lack of a mirror in the bedroom was a little unusual. Only one mirror in bathroom was not very practical Parking at $50 a night, including tax is a little expensive. There aRe plenty of parking lots in the Area at half... More

I stayed in this hotel for a 3 day sightseeing trip in July and was very happy with it. It's in walking distance of most of the sights--very close to the White House, Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial. The room was very comfortable. I was traveling with my son's family and had a room with two double beds. I understand... More

Can't fault this place on any measure! Nice, clean, roomy room. Good value. Two blocks from National Mall. Lottsa restaurants of all budget ranges within two blocks. Would highly recommend. The less pricy restaurants nearby are actually better than the more expensive ones.
