The lively W in DC is in a fantastic location - in the backyard of the White House - walkable to everything. My 11 year old daughter and I spent the weekend here to attend the March for Science, very close by. Our room had 2 double beds on the 9th floor, facing an interior courtyard, so it was quite...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed at this location for two nights recently. The hotel is fabulous! The location is across the street from the White House, and there are views from the roof top. Make sure if you want to have a meal on the roof top that you make reservations. The rooms are on the smaller size which may not work as...

Great stay at W D.C. One of our favorite hotels. Great location and service. Ferade in the lobby bar was fantastic to our party both nights we were there. Love the champagne and cupcakes at check-in. Great brunch at the Pinea too.

While in DC for a business meeting, I stayed two night in the W hotel. Great location. It was only a 15min drive from Union Station. The staff was very friendly. When I arrived, check in was very quick, but the rooms are on the small end (The wonderful room). It was only my husband and I and was was...

The W here in D.C. is on point. The location is centrally located just two blocks from the White House. The hotel is in a old renovated building and used to be The Washington Hotel. Upon arrival you notice the hustle and bustle in the Lobby. The W is a dog friendly hotel and our dogs loved it there. The...

I have stayed in basic rooms and suites over the years at the W D.C., and each visit was very nice. It's worth the splurge/upgrade to get one of the corner suites looking out over the White House, as the rooms are very spacious and bright, while the basic rooms can be small and dark in comparison. The restaurant on...

The entire experience was amazing!

The location is perfect and the rooftop and lobby are very typical of W Hotels, modern, trendy and fun! However, the rooms are less than impressive. I checked in tonight and was put in a wonderful room that is extremely small, with a full sized bed and a bathroom that you can hardly turn around in. The "bathroom" counter which...

I really liked my stay at the W during my trip to D.C. I was upgraded to a large room with a great view. The breakfast is great. The location is great especially if you'd like to walk around and explore D.C. The rooftop bar has some of the best views in the city. On the whole a great experience.
