Rooms: Lucky enough to be upgraded to a Fabulous Suite on arrival. However, I would expect that all rooms were appointed to the same quality, even if size differed. It was very comfortable. Even though I didn't have guests, it is large enough to hold a meeting, or have a couple of people come and sit in the lounge area. I simply enjoyed having the separate space to relax after a day of sight seeing. The Bliss products in the room were an added bonus and made me want to use hotel provided product - something I don't usually do.
Service: I found the service in the hotel and lobby bar to be wonderful. The bar staff were lovely, service quick and their approach made the lobby bar a very sociable space for a drink at the end of the day. On receiving an email wishing me the best on my last night, I requested a late check out. The manager was obliging given my room was not booked the following evening. That allowed me to make the most of my last day given I had a long haul flight ahead of me. I also took advantage of the free car service that can be booked after noon to drop me at a show. This was provided by a car company, but a really great bonus.
Location: Great for sightseeing, but not much nightlife downtown. If you want a cafe and bar scene in Washington - stay or go to Georgetown. The W was perfect for me as I only had a few days in town and I prefer to walk a city. It is within walking distance to everything from the Lincoln memorial to the Capitol. The mall is a block away. You don't have that sort of access from Georgetown so the decision is best made on what is more important to you.
Other: On site gym was well appointed. I also used the on site Bliss spa and found that to be of a high standard. Much is written about POV. It is a great space, but I couldn't get seat for dinner my first night in. The second night there were no reservations, so my suggestion would be to book well ahead for dinner. Hotel guests don't seem to get any preference. It is worth visiting, but it isn't a fine dining restaurant. The view is good and I found the service to be good too.
Worth a visit.
