This contemporary hotel has a neat look and feel. The rooms are decorated with white laquer furniture and the down stairs great room boasts some funky chairs and odd pillows. Bliss products are in the room and you get 5 pieces. The hotel staff were very nice and quick to help. The big problem that I had with this hotel...

I had a great experience with the house keeper lady, Zahra. I was still in the room and had forgotten to put the "clean my room later" tag outside of the door. She was kind and very accommodating. She also explained to me how to get the coffee machine in the room and services I wasn't aware of. I also...

First the good: this W is in a great location for sightseeing, dining and access to the metro. The front desk staff could not have been more helpful going above and beyond. Now the not so good: Walls are paper thin and and my neighbors talked and carried on until 2:00 AM and started up again at 6:00 am--I could...

This is a great hotel for business or pleasure. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and quiet. The restaurant at the hotel is well worth a visit. The bar on the roof top is quite the hot spot. The view from the roof top bar is amazing. I would not suggest it for an evening...

Overall, very pleasant stay with standard service, look and feel of most W properties. Unfortunately I didn't make it to the rooftop lounge / bar, which I hear is a top attraction. The location is great for those looking to be in walking distance of the white house and the usual tourist stops around the Mall. Area lacks any sort...

Amazing location next to the white house of all places! GREAT rooftop patio with nice views. I'm not the biggest fan of DC but this hotel is right in the middle of everything for that inner tourist or person on business. I had platinum SPG status but didn't seem to get a big upgrade. The rooms are very nice looking...

Return visit after 5 years. Great to see the renovations completed and as an improvement. No problems with the WiFi or water pressure. Great location to everything including the hop on and off bus. Do take advantage of the roof-top lounge and bar. It provides a great view.
