The W is usually my first choice for visits to DC because of the location and the Starwoods points, but this hotel has some drawbacks that management can't seem to get under control. Unless you get upgraded, the rooms are small (even for DC hotels -- more akin to Manhattan hotels). And the staff is hit-or-miss -- often the front desk clerks are friendly, helpful and professional, but every once in a while someone with attitude consistently slips through every trip. It seems like the too-cool people running the rooftop bar wind up getting hired downstairs. Last, prepare to be nickel-and-dimed by the W. I travel the world professionally, so I'm used to prices charged by hotels for water, snacks, food, etc. -- but the W takes it up a notch.
J&G Steakhouse is one of the best steakhouses in the country -- I eat there every trip to DC. Wow.
