Got an upgrade to a corner suite. Tried Keyless (again) and knew this time to ask for a key on the way in in case my keyless phone-based bluetooth thing didn't work. My phone did not work in the elevator not did it work on my room lock. Otherwise, things were great. Love the room. Had a view of Treasury...

Just got back from visiting Washington DC, and stayed at the magical W hotel. This hotel is absolutely beautiful with chandeliers, a bed with a red bed board lighting, super stylish and very eye pleasing. The rooms are beautiful and lush! The bathrooms are large with marble/granite, with gorgeous details of crown molding and very eccentric touches though out the...

The W Hotel Washington is in a perfect location, just a few blocks walking to the White House and many famous attractions. The workout room in the hotel is excellent and has state of the art equipment. It is also a large room. The rooms are normal “W” size. The staff is well trained, extremely friendly helpful and courteous. On...

Only stayed one night, however the front desk service was great. The room was ok, I find a bit small as I was traveling with 2 teenagers. The bathroom and walk in shower were large and spacious. I was in the first floor, but didn´t hear any noise from the street or the bar downstairs. Had a good sleep!

First off, the inside of the hotel is very pretty. Monica who helped us check in was very friendly and helpful! However, I didn't enjoy hearing one of the other employees expressing his political views the entire time I was trying to check in. I get it's D.C. but seriously I'm on vacation !! I don't care how much you...

My family and I spent a couple days at the W and were impressed the moment we walked into the building. The design of the lobby as soon as you walk in ignites your senses as the colorful lights illuminate the ceiling and charming photos of various presidents decor the walls. It was captivating to take it all in as...

The location is phenomenal. Central D.C., right next to the White House. The rooftop bar is wonderful, particularly in the spring and fall. The rooms and accommodations are another story. The rooms are average....barely. Very small, even by D.C. standards, old tired amenities, frankly below nearly all of the other Starwood properties in D.C. There is also no coffee shop,...

Spent two nights here with my husband and overall we really enjoyed our time. The location is incredible and the staff in particular were all as friendly and professional as you would expect from a hotel of this caliber. But, generally for us this felt more like a 3.5 star hotel. We are huge fans of the W brand, but...
