A very nice 4 star hotel conveniently located in the heart of DC, at Pennsylvania avenue. Friendly staff at the reception. The rooms are a little bit small, though. Compared with the Grand Hyatt that I also stayed in the area I would prefer JW Marriott

I've stayed in many Marriott properties and the staff is usually outstanding, but the way I was treated this morning when checking out was unbelievable. I won't go into details but the woman's surprisingly nasty and unwarranted attitude almost made me give the hotel a poor rating. But then I thought of the other truly helpful and kind staff members... More

i just stayed at Marriott's Flagship Washington, DC, hotel during a major renovation. In the past 20 years, I have stayed at this hotel over 25 times. Because it has always been one of the Marriott family favorites, the service and quality over the years has been very good. While I received an email prior to my booking noting the... More

This hotel is located within walking distance of the National Mall and two different metro stations. The common areas (atrium-style lobby, bar, restaurants) are creative and modern and staffed with professional and polished employees. I loved having a Starbucks cafe on the ground floor. Not a cafe that "proudly serves" but badly brews Starbucks coffee, but a full-on Starbucks cafe... More

We spent a long weekend here in October. The location could not have been better. It was within walking distance of all of the major DC tourist attractions as well as the museums. The staff was friendly, the lobby beautiful, and everything was very clean.

This is not going to be a typical review of JW Marriott as there are enough pure reviews on the site. This will be some tips to make your stay less stressful especially if you aren't familiar with the area. This place is busy and host a number of events in their ballroom. My wife's company christmas party was here... More

It was a great stay at this wonderful hotel that is located in the middle of all the amazing attractions that are Washington, DC. Our room overlooked Freedom Plaza and further in the distance the Washington Memorial. The room was clean and the bathroom well equipted with great amenities, large fluffy towels and cosy robe. As the previous reviewer stated... More

Wish they would have shared this... ordinarily a great spot and still a great spot, but top floors are under renovation and the concierge lounge is closed. So, breakfast is not as easy and dinner/snacks in the evening are not available. Also, cheaper spirits and beers that you can get in the lounge are not available - pay up at... More

This property is so close to the White House, the Washington Monument, the Ronald Reagan Building, and several Metro stations that it is a perfect venue for visiting the nation's capitol. Depending on where your room is located you can see one or more of the prized attractions of DC. There are many great restaurants just a few steps away,... More

This is a large hotel with lots of opportunities for things going wrong. Overall, I thought they did a very good job. The housekeeping staff is incredibly nice and they do an excellent job - rooms very clean. The elevators are funky but efficient once you get used to them. The bar downstairs is friendly and clean. It's not a... More
