Stayed at the W Washington for three nights last weekend for the National Equality March. The hotel is beautiful, nicely redone, clean and the staff is very attentive. Devon at the front desk was very welcoming. We arrived late in the evening on a Friday night and the line to get into the hotel was pretty long. The bouncers and the cordoned off rope was a bit intimidating -it really looked like it was nightclub! We were let in and when we got to the lobby it felt like a South Beach nightclub, music blaring, very crowded. It's not what one expects when walking into a hotel lobby. After getting through various cordoned off areas with security we made it to the front desk and were able to check in.
The rooms are small (we had a spectacular room). Very well decorated and very comfortable beds. The bathrooms don't provide much privacy. The shower is a glass box in the room and the sliding door to the bathroom doesn't close all the way so you can see into the bathroom - not much privacy.
The rooftop terrace is amazing and the views are spectacular. However don't expect to sit anywhere as all the tables on the terrace were always reserved, eventhough they were empty most of the time. We asked about it and told that they were reserved so we didn't sit down.
As far as the location, you can't beat it. Steps from the White House, two subway stations a few blocks away and the Mall within walking distance too.
