Overall, very pleasant stay with standard service, look and feel of most W properties. Unfortunately I didn't make it to the rooftop lounge / bar, which I hear is a top attraction. The location is great for those looking to be in walking distance of the white house and the usual tourist stops around the Mall. Area lacks any sort...

Amazing location next to the white house of all places! GREAT rooftop patio with nice views. I'm not the biggest fan of DC but this hotel is right in the middle of everything for that inner tourist or person on business. I had platinum SPG status but didn't seem to get a big upgrade. The rooms are very nice looking...

Very close to White House and within walking distance of everything else. Lots of restaurants nearby. Was on the 3rd floor -- no view at all, but I try not to stay in my room for very long anyway. WiFi worked great. If you're a member of their rewards program, wifi is free. Membership in the rewards is also free...

Return visit after 5 years. Great to see the renovations completed and as an improvement. No problems with the WiFi or water pressure. Great location to everything including the hop on and off bus. Do take advantage of the roof-top lounge and bar. It provides a great view.

This hotel is in a perfect location which is its best asset. For tourists, the hotel is within walking distance of all the major attractions and subway lines. For me, a former DC resident, the hotel is perfect for visiting my favorite spots from when I used to live there. The lobby is beautiful. The rooms, though somewhat worn-in, are...

I went with family for graduation festivities and found this expensive hotel to be extremely disappointing. The lobby and location can't be beat, and, upon arrival, the staff was very attentive... but everything else was a disappointment. When we were shown to our 3rd floor room by a very polite and friendly attendant named Mustafa, we found the hallway to...

Our stay at the W was pleasant enough although the property could use some minor tweaks. Pros: - The hotel is within a short walking distance to most important sites: The White House, the Washington Monument, The Museum of Natural History, restaurants and shops...to name a few. - Pinea, the restaurant hotel, is a chic spot with a casual vibe....
