Had a fantastic one night stay in the best location for a tourist visitor being just minutes walk from the White House and Washington Monument. All the staff were very helpful and courteous from front desk to concierge and roof top bar. The hotel was pretty quiet when we were there as it was almost Christmas meaning the bar was... More

We chose this hotel for its location and its rooftop bar. It is across the road from the White House and boasts impressive views of the WH and the Washington monument. However, despite spending $30 for two drinks we could not get a seat and had to stand the whole time. You have to reserve a seat in advance, even... More

I am sorry that you were not happy with the experience you had at the W in DC. It is our intention to properly communicate on our brand differentiators. The Westin hotels for example, stand for “healthy-Zen” destinations; whereas W is more about a lively and energetic atmosphere. It looks like you were not properly informed about our brand passion...

This trip to DC was primarily to see a show at the Kennedy Center so the location was our first consideration, What a delight to arrive to a courteous and attentive front desk host.

We all loved this modern clean hotel especially for the any time service. Because we travelled from the west coast and didn't wake up early for breakfast, it was great to order eggs at 11:30! Also DANIEL was very helpful with suggesting places to see in the area. The rooftop bar is really delightful! I recommend W for a great... More

The W is a nice hotel and in a great location near the Mall and White House. I was surprised on how small the room was. Tiny! With luggage for two people there it felt cramped.
