In many respects the W Washington is like most other W properties - a "cool" lobby with chic decor with piped in new-age music, a spectacular rooftop bar, helpful staff and small rooms.
You certainly can't beat the location. The W is right across from the Department of Treasury building and one block from the White House. Whether you're in D.C. on business or holidays it's hard to beat the location.
We found the staff to be most helpful if not a little over the top at times. There were always two people on the front doors and someone available to hold the doors open on the elevator for you. The lady at the concierge desk was more than willing to help you plan out your days.
The rooms are on the small side. I stayed in 515 which over looked the Treasury Building. It was quite narrow with virtually no extra room apart from the beds and desk. You certainly wouldn't want to spend a lot of time hanging out in the room.
There's no doubt the rooftop bar is the star attraction of the hotel. It faces south over top of the Treasury Building with a great view of the White House. During inclement weather the retractable awning and drop down clear plastic siding keeps you warm. In the summer months with the terrace wide open it would even be more spectacular.
The W can be quite expensive. If you can get a deal it's definitely worth staying at the property. The small rooms is the only thing that keeps it from getting a five star review.
