Quick Getaway

This hotel is perfect for a party couple looking for getaway, and who found a good price. I would not recommend for the quiet couples, families or for those seeking relaxation. The upstairs restaurant turns into a club at night, so if you go out to dinner and come back, but just want to go to your room, you will be fighting for the elevator along with other club goers in line. This is a great hotel, if you get a discounted price. Don't waste 4 or 5 hundred dollars. The city is too accessible from other hotels.

Good hotel

This hotel is located near many important monuments within walking distance. There were good restaurants around or you could take the cab right downstairs. The hotel was very clean, and service was great. If you are a girl, you would love this hotel because of the design and products. However, wifi is not free and you have to call for service for some basic things which should have been positioned in the room (e.g., toothbrush and slippers). It was a little annoying that travelers have to call in for such basic amenities. Also, it would have been a plus if shuttles to and from the airport was provided and surely other hotels around this area has this service. Overall, it's great but it could have been more pleasant.

Ok but deserve better food

The hotel was nice but the breakast buffet was ordinary and basic. And the menu of the roomservice can be better. Mexico W was better. Keep trying

Don't go unless your a celebrity

I was so excited to stay at this hotel because of its proximity to the White House. Arrived early checked in ... Was treated rudely by the check in girl! Once I made it up to my room I found all kinds of hair on the bedding!! There was also a paper covering some sort of alarm/light.... Looked super schetchy! I complained to a manager but he was ruder than the girl at the check in desk! I figured out that this hotel is known for hosting celebs and the uber flashy rich "hip" crowds...explained the snotty, rude treatment .

Cherry Blossom Festival Trip

The W was perfect for a romantic getaway! We were walking distance to many festivities and had a wonderful time! The only downside was how crowded the family room was at night. The POV rooftop bar turns into a club at night and a lot of people come that are not staying at the hotel. When we returned from dinner Saturday night the line was out the door to get onto the elevator, so we went to the front desk to see if we could take the stairs up since we weren't going to the club, we wanted to go to our room. We were told there was no stair entrance and we had to get in line, which as a guest was very upsetting. We ended up cutting the line and told the elevator attendant we wanted to go straight to our room, and he let us go. Overall it was a great hotel, but I wouldn't recommend unless you enjoy the nightlife it offers.

Great Location

Positives: location is fantastic; staff are very courteous and helpful; room was clean and well-kept. Negatives: additional cost for in-room internet (quality luxury hotels shouldn't be charging additional for this); rooms on 10th floor are EXTREMELY loud on Friday and Saturday nights.

Fun decore; perfect location!

I was so sad to check out after just one night at the W DC. I loved to style and the location! There was a lot of street noise in the room, but given the location, it's to be expected.
