5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

A group of 6 of us had a table reservation at pov on the rooftop for a Saturday night. It was our first time there and we were all really impressed! Awesome view and great atmosphere!!! Our servers Leah and Sara made us feel welcome and Jeff and Brian helped us out as well! Would definitely go back!!! One of my friends is going to plan her birthday party there in December.

Both my colleague and I had really enjoy this memorable dining experience. The food and the service was amazing, our server Anh was just always so attentive and courteous . I definitely recommend the W Hotel, to friends and family. The experience was so enjoyable that I will have to come back, hopefully I will get the same server.

My sister graduated from a certification program so the family wanted
to celebrate. We went to the POV rooftop Terrace at the W hotel from
brunch. We did not wait downstairs for long at all and the
downstairs staff including security were very friendly. I did not
sense an attitude from them even when my mother was being very
inquisitive about the food upstairs.
We got upstairs and were seated promptly. The seats that we had were
very very very nice mostly because of the view. I wish the building
was a little bit higher because it would be amazing. We were served by
the charming and very attentive Krystle. One of the best servers, I
have ever had in all my times out. She made my sister feel special and
even my mother liked her (My mother complains about EVERYTHING).

My girls and I wanted to go somewhere where there were going to be
handsome men because we are pretty girls. We wanted a night where we
can just let loose and have a good time. After a couple of days of
trying to decide, we decided to make reservations at The W, The POV.
Ill tell you this, we made the right choice. We had a great time. I
loved the view. The men who worked there look glamorous , and so did
the women. Our server Krystle , was magnificent and helped me learn
how to tie her a scarf like a pro. The drinks were a bit expensive,
but who can really put a price on a good time.

Great Night at the W
My boys came up from Blacksburg, Virginia to celebrate my promotion at
a prominent company in the D.C metropolitan area. I got a room at the
W for the weekend so we can party and not worry about having to go all
the way back to Virginia.
We hit the town, a couple of bars and some lounges and decided to come
back to the hotel and came to the hotel for our reservation at the
rooftop terrace. The music was good and the view was GREAT! My boys
were yelling “Obama” as if he were going to come out of the White
house and wave back. Krystle, our server was amazing and had some
funky earrings on that made our night. Great server, if you go to the
POV rooftop make sure you ask for her.
All in all we had a great night. Thanks The W and Krystle

Upon hearing about the rooftop terrace, i was unsure of what type of food and service i would receive. Overall, the food was decent, but the service is what would make me come back a second time. Our waitress, Krystle, was very helpful and supportive to both my significant other and I. I highly recommend both this restaurant and this waitress.

While on a trip to D.C., my friends and I were looking for a fun low-key night and we found it at The W's POV Roof Terrace. Once we got there, we were seated immediately. The view from the rooftop along with our spectacular server, Krystle, created an ambiance that we couldn't find anywhere else in D.C. One of our friends is a picky eater and has a hard time finding a dish she absolutely loves, but Krystle picked a dish for her and she couldn't stop smiling!! If you want a fine night with your friends, hit the rooftop. If you want a great server, hope you get Krystle.
