The staff at the W were great and I love the places to eat around the hotel such as the Old Ebbitt Grill. Location is close to the White house so there is a lot to see and do. The staff are very friendly and do everything to make sure your stay is great!! There are a lot of hotels... More

Everything about this hotel is sensational. The service. The food and drink. The staff. The location. The amenities. Every aspect is sensational. The rooms are super clean and warming and inviting. Of course the rooftop bar overlooking the White House is a must see whether you are a guest in the hotel or not. I am on the road for... More

Nice place to stay on a quick business trip. Fantastic location - for business or pleasure -- a block from The White House. The room was very small by American standards, but quite adequate. Staff was good -- especially in the restaurant where they jumped through hoops in assisting my team with an impromptu business meeting at breakfast.

The Staff at the W-DC was very accommodating and certainly made our stay a special one! The rooftop POV bar is the perfect spot for an evening Sunset cocktail overlooking the White House and Washington Monument.

Hotel lobby is impressive. The rest not so much. Hotel staff not accommodating. The rooms are very contemporary. The beds are low to the ground not made for older people. And uncomfortable. Bathroom floods when running the shower. For a 4 star. Unexcusable. Would not stay again. Overpriced

Sure, we all know you don't come to the W for a good night's sleep and when I entered the lobby to thumping, poorly mixed techno-hip-hop, I was reminded of that. But then I went to the roof to catch a late-night snack having come off a long flight. Despite being ridiculously overcharged, ($50 for a small plate of mediocre... More

This hotel is perfectly situated to visit the monuments and museums that DC has to offer. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that our visit with two teenage nieces was special. Breakfast at Pinea was very good and the bar on the top floor is not to be missed.

Nice place with good food and very nice view on the white house and more. Nice to be there in the evening when you can see all the monuments. The food is OK. It is very nice to sit on the open terrace and drink some drinks while looking on DC from above.

We checked in on a Saturday night for a night . We were treated to a suite upgrade. That was nice , but the suite bathroom sink ( long trough leaving little counter space) and door (sliding door leaving Almost no privacy) were poor designs .
