The positive - location. The negative - an expensive hotel that gives you little for your money. Very small rooms with unattractive decor, worn and discolored fabric on the furniture, tiny TV's, some with sinks in the room, a glass wall separating the room and bathroom making it impossible not to bother the 2nd person in the room during the...

I am a very loyal SPG business traveler who has stayed at the W Washington DC several times over the past few years. What made me feel the need to post a review (I literally never have) is based upon the phenomenal client service of Marlon Norman, who works at the front desk. I arrived in a state of panic,...

In no respect does this W cater to business travelers. I also can’t imagine bringing children here. Who is their target audience? I have no idea. Extremely small room, and that was the upgrade. Small desk but otherwise no real work space. There was not a side chair in the room, so you’re sitting in the desk chair or on...

We had a fantastic stay with the family at the W Washington DC. The location was perfect for sightseeing (across from White House visitors center, walking to monuments, Smithsonian and the Mall). Service at the hotel was wonderful. I continue to hope that Marriott allows the SPG properties to maintain their brands and unique characteristics. If the Ws become Marriott-ized,...

I was in town for a couple of days with my 11 year old for his birthday. Upon mentioning that I was there for a father son weekend for my 11 year old's birthday, Randal and Nabou immediately provided us with an upgrade. As if that wasn't enough, they upgraded us to a fantastic suite and upon our return from...

Contemporary, loud music (more so at night), dark halls and small rooms. Seemed like a European, hip hotel for maybe the younger generation but wasn't for our family. (I am 48 with 2 teens, the teens thought it was cool but not my style) Rooms were very small. Plastic "couch"/where we put our luggage was peeling. Shower was glass on...

Staff was great, wonderful location....rooms are on the small side. Glass wall from shower to room isn't practical. If someone gets up early and takes a shower, the light shines right on bed. Hotel is beautiful, but seems to be leaning towards the younger crowds. The roof top was awesome views of the Treasury Dept., The White Hoise, and The...

We stopped in for a drink at the hotel. The Living Room Bar is a wonderful space with sofas and side chairs and small tables. Our server, Forcade, treated us like his most welcome guests with glasses of wine. We were surprised when small plates of food (bread, cheese, and a crabcake) were included with our drinks. We loved it.

The Hamilton with live music across the street, old Ebberts Grill a block away and subway stations nearby. The spa is also great. I...
