I'm here with family and friends for a wedding. The staff is fine and helpful. The rooftop bar offers a nice view of the White House and EOB. However I'm disappointed with the room. Small. Little usable space for suitcases, etc. The bathroom vanity is tiny with little space for toothbrush, shaving etc., let alone my wife's things. I don't...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 March 2017

Where to start? This is my go to hotel for all of my DC travels. Monica, Frank and Gerard are the faces of the W taking care of every need with a smile behind the front desk. Monica came through big on my Platinum upgrade at check in. I had a larger suite on 9th floor, but she wisely advised...

Attentive staff, fine restaurant food, central location near the White House, comfortable in a quirky atmosphere! Concierge "whatever" desk always able to assist with all enquiries, restaurant staff go out of their way to provide service.

This hotel is swanky for sure!! I was upgraded to a suite due to my SPG Platinum status...wow! The lighting was a little low for working at the desk at night, but small price to pay for the awesome views of the monuments. And the bathroom was very cool with a massive tub. Next time I go though, I would...

Everything was as it should be when you're staying at a hotel of this type. Rooms & amenities were clean. The service was great from the front door to the front desk. The gym was a bit small, oh well.

I stay here a lot when on biz in DC. Great updated rooms, service is good and the food and drink superb. The rooftop bar is the best in DC. Views spectacular and worth a business drink.....also a place to impress your friends.

Rooms are fine. Could be designed a bit better. The W Hotels are notorious for the glass in the showers between the bedroom and bathroom. So, if you are traveling with family members and this will be an issue make certain you upgrade to a room that offers privacy. Elevators are too small. Service in the restaurant is slow and...

I've stayed here multiple times, and each time, the service is disappointing, particularly relative to the price paid. The signature feature of this hotel, and really one of the main reasons to stay here, is P.O.V., their rooftop bar with views of the White House. But every time you go the staff is more concerned about kicking you out early...

We booked and paid for a "Fabulous 2 Queen Bedroom" and were disappointed to find our view looked out onto a brick wall and other surrounding rooms so we had to keep our blinds down most of the time. The room on the website looked luxurious but our room although with modern furniture, looked tired and needed renovation. Even the...

Stayed here with a group. Positives: Excellent location, exemplary service. Negatives: Tiny rooms (almost too small for a couple--we were continually running into each other), odd lay out, sky high rates. Since my group paid for the room this was not a problem but I certainly wouldn't stay here if I had to pay myself. The roof top bar is...

“Do NOT agree to a room facing a wall. Do not take a room above the 8th floor - you may have noise from the very busy roof bar.”
