Coolness and vibe aside, the Washington DC W Hotel is also perfect for the business traveler. As a platinum SPG member I typically get an upgraded room but upon check-in the front desk informed me they had upgraded me to a WOW Suite. Pretty impressive, until you actually get into the room and notice it is a VERY impressive suite...

Fantastic view on the rooftop! If you visit DC, you MUST come to this place! Besides the fact that there were tons of people, I loved everything about it. Not sure about the food, but drinks were pretty good (and very pricey). The bottomline is that it a GREAT PLACE to visit!

The W hotel in Washington is something else. The amazing location goes without saying but its the service that makes it truly amazing. The staff is referred to as 'talents' which tells you something about the hotel's attitude. They are so nice and welcoming and they will go out of their way to accommodate any need. I would like to...

I can't say anything negative, so I'll cut to the chase. Super friendly staff. Super comfortable room. Great location. Walking distance to most attractions and some great restaurants.

If you're going to DC to visit museums and see the sights then this is an ideal location. It's right next to the White House and a short walk to Smithsonian Museums and the Washington Monument.

We stay at this hotel because of its location. Its literally a block away from the white house and the monument of Washington.

Our family of four stayed at the W using SPG points and had a really good stay. The service was great (the staff was terrific), the location couldn't have been better and the breakfasts were good.
