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 The rooms are small, the workout facility seem outdated, and the elevator system is a bit quirky.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

The JW Marriott next to the National Press Club is a top notch property in a prime location. Service, staff and amenities are very good, and it has one of the better fitness centers of any Marriott at which I've stayed in a long time. I recommend this property and intend to stay here in the future. You will like... More

My family and I had an extended stay at the JW Marriott over the winter school holiday. Overall, the experience was decent. The front desk was courteous and attentive. The room was satisfactory, with comfortable pillows, clean bathroom, etc. My kids loved the pool. The hotel was convenient to DC attractions, and we were able to walk or take the... More

Rest assured we do not take lightly to claims such as these as this issue has been addressed with the appropriate department and staff. I would also like to address your concern about the price of our in-room wifi.... More

I just achieved Platinum status with Marriott Rewards and I was really looking forward to the possible amenities and services this hotel could offer. Reality set in when I was booked into a very average, small room; I was told, due to remodeling and current bookings, this was the best room available. Additionally, when I attempted to drop off some... More

The hotel is well located, walking distance from main atractions in downtown DC. The service was fine, did not use the hotel instalations that much because we were out all the time, had dinner twice at the Avenue Grill, it was good and expensive, but nothing out of this world. I would stay there again, and I do recommend it... More

Stayed here overnight and enjoyed a quiet comfy room. Check in and out was an easy experience. I would recommend the hotel to anyone who is willing to pay the price to be close to everything in town. The room was small, but I'd expect that from most hotels in the area.
