My husband and I stayed at the W for three nights, beginning on July 19, 2014. As others have stated, the location can't be beat, right next to the famous Willard Hotel and close to the White House, Washington Memorial, Metro Station, restaurants and more. Our room was small (queen size bed) and faced the courtyard and the windows have a painted design on them (in white) so it did feel a bit confining. Upon check-in I asked if there were any rooms facing the street (we got the hotel through Priceline) and the only rooms she could offer were below the nightclub and I knew I didn't want one of those rooms because of the noise. She did say something might open up on Sunday, but I never checked on that because I didn't feel like moving rooms for only a three-night stay. The upside of the room was that it was very very quiet. And yes, the bathroom situation is a bit weird with the sink and vanity out in the open instead of in a separate room but I knew what to expect from other reviews. The coffee served in the lobby was really good and also little breakfast bars (kind of like granola bars but better) were put out daily. All in all, we were very pleased with the W Hotel and the friendly staff--if you want a good location for sightseeing, this is the place to be. Also the lobby has retained some of the grandeur of the former Washington Hotel and I liked that.
