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.

Fancy/sleazy

This place is very overpriced. There were multiple orders of room service dishes sitting on the floor outside of other rooms in the hallway all night and into the morning. The room itself was tiny but comfortable. The lighting in the room felt like a red-light district. There were weird red LED lights all along the headboard of the bed. I paid $237 for one night at what I thought was going to be one of the classiest hotels in town. The whole stay was off-putting and weird. It definitely disappointed me.

Best 1st experience ever !

Even though our flight came in super late the first night, everyone took care of us as if we were presidential. The location was wonderful, the best location in town. Everything you need is in walking distance, and the White House is literally right next to the hotel. The Acura service was excellent, beautiful cars to take us wherever we wanted to go in a 5 mile radius. The restaurant suggestions were awesome, especially the "Georgia Brown" restaurant their food was AMAZING! The hotel staff were very wonderful, they weren't afraid to actually hold a conversation with you, very nice people. They greet you every time you come in the door and lobby. Omg it's so much I can say about our 1st time experience to Washington D.C., even the big bus tour that the city has is awesome that the best tour line everybody should take you hop on hop off all day. Overall this experience was awesome, magnificent, if I come again I'm staying at the W.

Fabulous Location!!!

This was a great choice for a first time visit to D.C. in terms of location. You are right in the middle of the Mall and a stones throw away from the White House. Overall, the W staff had great customer service and catered to every need. The POV bar on the roof was a great weekend hot spot as well!
