I can not understand the mixed reviews at this W location. This place is solid. This hotel is in a great location, the furnishings are new and the staff is great.

We really wanted to like this hotel, but just couldn't find enough to like. The location is great, right by all the local museums and attractions. You can get to any of the monuments, the mall, and a lot of other attractions in just a few minutes. It is very convenient for a walking tour of the city. The rooms... More

Stayed for 2 nights for New Years 2015. This place just goes above and beyond. At check-in I was greeted by a smiling staff and two glasses of champagne. They upgraded my room to a WOW Suite which was absolutely incredible- by far the nicest hotel room I've ever stayed in. The staff went out of their way to ensure... More

Thank you so much for your great review. We are proud of our new restaurant concept. Pinea just opened few months ago under Chef Koslow lead. He created the menu to be elegant yet approachable, his cuisine inspired by the traditions of southern Europe. We hope to see you back soon. All the best. Sophie Menestrier More

I recently spent one night at the W Washington DC on a family trip between Christmas and New Year’s. Our group was definitely split when it comes to deciding whether we liked this hotel.
