I am a student at Cornell's School of Hotel Administration and was impressed with not only the interior design of the W, but the service we received. I stayed here with a few friends (who are also Hotel school students) in a room that had two queen sized beds. I was in DC for the Solar Decathlon Competition (go Cornell!) The rooms were AMAZING. I'm actually really surprised that people said the rooms were small, because all 5 of us comfortably fit inside. This sounds very trivial, but the carpet in the rooms is so soft and it feels amazing on your feet after a long day.
All of the employees were extremely courteous and never condescending, even when I walked in completely grungy after spending the entire day on the National Mall for the Solar Decathlon competition. Yes, the lobby does get hectic during the weekend nights because non-hotel guests are waiting in line for POV. However, as soon as you show the bouncers your room key they immediately escort you to the elevator. I never had to wait in line. My friends and I absolutely loved the VIP treatment we received.
I went up to POV twice, both of which were very nice. The view is simply mesmerizing. The people that go to POV are classy and elegant
The Whatever, Whenever desk is amazing! They took care of all of our concerns promptly. The drain in our shower was clogged when we arrived and an engineer showed up to our door within 5 minutes of us asking for help. The next day we received a complimentary gift (a bottle of Fiji water and two apples) along with a handwritten note of apology. The W's service recovery process certainly impressed us.
