The location, the service and the rooftop bar are things that made this hotel stay great. I have stayed at many W Hotels in the past...this one had more uniqueness to it that most other W's and will likely stay here again. But there were a few things that did annoy me that leads me to think it is a...

Stunning. Amazing. Gorgeous. Perfect location. Unfortunately I wasn't staying with my wife, but a male friend on business. Boutique atmosphere added interest, but a touch of weird. Room was beautiful, but had a glass shower within the actual room, with a "barn door" slider for toilet area that left inches open to the room on both sides when fully closed....

I couldn't ask for a better location. It is minutes away from the White House and close to the monuments and museums. The room was bright, clean, and had a great view of the Washington monument. Thank you to all of the staff that helped make this a fantastic trip. I will definitely be returning to this hotel soon!

You can't find a better location than the W if you are visiting Washington. The hotel is within walking distance to most of the major sites and it is the closest hotel to the White House.
