Stayed five days through memorial day weekend.This hotel is modern,clean and very spacious.
On arrival thursday morning from Boston we were warmly greeted by the entire valet crew. We were lucking enough to have Papa help us with our bags. ( More on Papa in a bit). not wanting to pay the pricey valet daily parking fees,We decided to park the car ourselves in the garage.The valet crew could sense I was not familiar with the numerous one way streets I needed to take for the garage, so one of the guys jumped in the passenger seat,took me to the garage,walked with me to hotel elevators,then walked me to my waiting family at the front desk. (Unheard of right there!)
Once in the lobby you realize you are in a nice hotel.We were told that the hotel had 100 percent occupancy, But it never, ever felt crowded. The lobby is spacious with many seating areas. Sofas for the kids to lay on for awhile after a long day of sightseeing.
We requested and received a Pennsylvania Ave room view. Very nice room,Comfy beds,and PLENTY of fluffy white towels.Starbucks in the lobby,Great Corner bakery in same block for great,affordable breakfast/Lunch
My wife and I were slightly worried about bringing our 11,10,and 8 year old children to such a nice hotel. I can assure all parents considering JW that this hotel is kid friendly... high fives ad hellos from the doorman/valets/security,Shirley temples from the bartenders.Smiles from the staff.
Every morning we left the hotel we would run into Papa the valet and he would ask what we where up to, where we planned on eating,what we planned on seeing and always encouraged us to have fun.
Saturday morning Papa told us that parking would become free on the streets beginning at 7;00 pm right through memorial day and to get our car out of the garage to save $$.I told Papa it would be real hard to find a street spot, Papa told me not to worry about and look for him later that night. When we returned Papa had moved his own car into a spot right in front of the hotel that we moved into.(PRICELESS)
Later that night after having a few drinks with my wife at the very comfortable hotel bar, My wife sent me on a mission for spring water at a local CVS. Papa saw me leaving the hotel and asked me where i was heading. He told me to sit in the lobby and returned with a plastic shopping bag full of bottled water. Two more bags followed on consecutive nights at the hotel.
As a family we have stayed at pricier hotels in Disney ,New York and Mexico. none of those places treated my family and I any better than the JW.
I am a firefighter and my wife is a nurse, We are not wealthy and do not have exceptionally high standards. Safe, clean and friendly works for us.
I can assure you all that anybody that writes a bad review about this hotel has more hangups than the JW Marriott DC.................
