I love this W hotel. My husband and I have stayed here twice for weekend getaways and have loved it each time. The design is fun and over-the-top, almost in a Great Gatsby kind of way. The rooms, while small, are also smartly designed. (Bliss products provided are an added bonus!)

Each time we've been, there's been a DJ playing on Saturday night in the hotel lobby, making even the lobby bar a fun place to stop for a drink. The POV lounge has a terrific view, but if you want a table, you'll need to make reservations in advance.

The W offers awesome service, too. The staff members are attentive and kind. On our last trip, my husband forgot his toothbrush. After a call to the front desk to request one, a toothbrush was at our room in less than 2 minutes. We've also been given extra perks (free drinks, etc.) each time we've visited.

The location can't be beat. It's within walking distance of great shopping, many museums and art galleries, restaurants, theater, etc.

Acura also partners with this W to provide free one-way car service to guests to surrounding areas. Of course, you hear a little pitch about the Acure while you ride, but it's better than a cab ride. We've had the Acura service take us to Georgetown each time. Just schedule the ride at the concierge desk.

A couple things to be aware of- If you want a quiet hotel experience, this is not the place to be on a Saturday night. Even in the "quiet" rooms you can faintly hear the music from the upstairs lounge lasting long into the night. Also, parking rates are obscene, but my husband and I, being the cheapskates that we are ;), just park in a public garage around the block and walk, saving us 50% off parking.

Beds were very comfortable and the room was quiet even though there was a night club atmosphere in the lobby and in the roof. Food was always wonderful. I would defiantly stay here again if I had the chance. The Bliss spa was a great experience, friendly, quiet and accommodating.

A very nice hotel in a great location, literally 5 mins from the White House and 10 mins from the Lincoln memorial.

The rooms were a good size, with comfortable beds. I was on my own, but the fact the bathroom door left a huge gap when closed was odd!! If I had been here on vacation with my wife, I'm sure this would have been a big negative point for the hotel.

The room service was tasty and the breakfast in the newly refurbished restaurant was well priced and very well prepared and presented.

All in all, I'd go back if returning on business.

This trendy hotel is home to POV Rooftop Bar which gives you a beautiful nighttime view of all the historical monuments in DC. The W is one block away from the White House and there is an amazing view of the Washington Monument. Make a reservation because the bar does get quite busy.

W Hotel is stylish and chic. The rooms are unique and trendy and there are several lounges on premise where you can mingle with other travelers and locals. Be ready to dish out the dough to stay here, W Hotels are not known for their affordability. However, the stay is worth it!

W Hotel, Washington is a well located, beautifully decorated hotel, but can be quite expensive and probably more suitable for holidays or weekend breaks than business. The foyer is very funky and lobby staff are attentive and professional. The rates we were charged were ridiculously high for what was on offer and rooms were neat but small. On weekend nights the rooftop becomes a nightclub with people queuing in the foyer to get up there. Location is very central, right near the Whitehouse and the Mall and two blocks from Metro Centre. Macy's is nearby, as are lots of good dinner and coffee options.

Room Tip: Outside facing rooms are much nicer than inward facing rooms.

Dear schaunanthony,

Thank you for your feed back, we are thilled to note that you have enjoyed your experience. W is known for being the place to be if you want to celbrate and/or party. As you mentionned, we enjoy a fantastic location with no eauivalent in town. Both combined, the great DJs + ideal location make us successful and particularly on Week ends.

Should you have another opportunity to visit us during the week, do not hesitate to let us know in advance and we will look at the best options for you.

Meanwhile have a great day!
Olivier
