So I am stuck as to whether or not this was worth the money. The location is second to none as there are not many places you can hang out on the rooftop deck, grab a drink while watching the snipers walk on the roof of the White House as it literally is about 200 yards away. If you know The W brand you know that the ammenities and the atmosphere is as unique and well-appointed as it gets. There is definitely a specific scene this brand is trying to attract and I can appreciate that and along with all of this comes the price which I was well aware of. However the staff at The W D.C. left me unimpressed. Even if you are trying to attract a higher-end client overall, I would think that would require all staff to be as accomodating and friendly as possible. This, unfortunately, was not the case in our experience as we were consistantly questioned about our presence in the hotel by what I assume to be the security manager. More than once per day we not only had to provide our key cards but an accompanying credit card and photo id. Had our rooms electronic key access worked, we could have avoided a lot of this but we had to go down 3 separate times to have our keys reprogramed and each time the same process. The Guest Relations staff were rude and short with us no matter who it was. Everything was expensive, two drinks upstairs on the roof cost $32.00. Some perks were the valet parking, ease of getting a taxi and the rooms were appointed well and the beds were comfortable (Queen sized bed for $349/night rate).
