I know W Hotels are supposed to be kind of funky & cool, but we expected the one across the street from the White House to have comfortable rooms with a nice & normal layout. Or maybe, it's just too funky for our taste. the furniture is white plastic or maybe laquer. The sink portion of the bath room is in the bedroom, not the bathroom. It had minimal counter space and was right next to the luggage stand, so I was constantly worried about getting everything wet. Who puts the sink in the bedroom in a "high" end property?? The actual bathroom is also poorly laid out. It contains the toilet and shower. They give you a robe and it hangs right next to the shower. But you can't open the shower door unless you move the robe hanger. And there is no place in the bathroom for the bath towels. You have to get them from the bedroom and put them on the bathroom floor or throw them over the shower door. The entire layout is so poor that it makes you very uncomfortable.
On the positive side, the service is pretty good. The bellman brought us ice and the hotel offers complementary shoe shines. Too bad they delivered the shoes many hours after they promised them, and then only when we called to find out where they were. The hotel is greatly located, across the street from the White House, and walking distance from many museums and tourist destinations. However, if this room layout is typical for a W property, we won't frequent this brand again.
