I've stayed at a few W hotels, and I get what they are going for - but this location just misses the mark. During a recent trip to DC, I ended up staying here for 2 nights, we had 2 different rooms and the experience was the same both times. I agree with some of the the other reviewers that...

We have been to W hotels all over the world, and this one is among the best. We have been upgraded many times to room views and suites that are absolutely breathtaking.

Beautiful, hip hotel in the middle of DC, right by the White House, close to the National Mall. May be the best hotel bed on which I have ever slept! Very friendly and helpful staff, lovely breakfast in the restaurant, great view from the rooftop lounge. W hotels feel like boutique hotels, although they are Starwood properties.

I always have a great stay at this hotel. It's luxurious but accessible. The rooms are stylish & chic but also just the right size-- not too big but not too cramped either.
