What a completely basic and disappointing visit. This is not a luxury hotel by any stretch of the imagination. First impression: rolled up to the curb, no welcome from the valet. They did not lift a finger to help with a cart or luggage. We actually had to go get them. They watched us struggle to open the doors and push our cart through the door ourselves. Sat on their rear ends. Second: the Bonvoy app states that there is complimentary coffee. No such thing. Apparently they need to suspend that because of covid, but they will sell you a basic cup instead. How does that even make sense? The bar said they had to suspend it. The front desk said they never offered it. Somebody is full of garbage. Third: As we were walking back in and through the lobby, one of the men with our family forgot to put his mask back on. The man at the front desk actually pointed his finger at the guest, said "hey! Mask on!" I'm not kidding. The proper thing to say is, "Excuse me, sir. Would you mind putting your mask on, it is DC regulations." And then thank the guest. Absolutely unacceptable. I can't help but wonder if this is a racism problem. We are here for the political rally, and we are white. Don't waste your money here. Pathetic.

Terrible mattress and pillows. Overly soft mattress and overly overused pillows kept me up all night, we rolled to middle of bed because the mattress of the king bed had no sturdiness from what I could only guess is over use. Pillows were a disaster too, waking around with a very stiff neck now. Yes location is great. But a 5star hotel should really have newer mattress and pillows, this is unacceptable.

As a platinum, I was given an upgrade to a spectacular room. Let’s just say there’s nothing spectacular about this room. There’s no desk I wonder how business travelers would feel about it. The foyer and the vanity area are very small. I understand that these restrictions came with the building, but when I tried to call the “whatever whenever” line or concierge, there’s also no one answering. Additionally, I asked for a comb and the front desk told me they didn’t have it. Hmm I guess the the whatever whenever doesn’t really apply? Hairdryer had lint build up and looked like it hasn’t been cleaned for a while - for a luxury hotel, this should really be taken care of.

Stayed here this past weekend, used the suite night award to get a marvelous suite with monument view, no breakfast for platinum member as restaurants were closed, but they did give a bottle of wine as welcome choice gift. Valet person was genuinely friendly, always acknowledge and open the door for us each time, we gave $5 as valet tip hopefully it’s reasonable. the suite really wowed me, super clean and the view was surreal. we called 7am to order breakfast, order was ready in 10 mins, requested additional towels via chat app, items delivered promptly. This is indeed different time for everyone, W still delivered unmatched services.
